ETHNICITY AND HOOKUPS: THE EXPERIENCES OF BLACK, WHITE, AND LATINA COLLEGE WOMEN
Ethnicity and Hookups: The Experiences of Black, White, and Latina College Women. The purpose in this study was to examine the hookup experiences of Black, White, and Latina women. Past research suggests women's hookup experiences may vary by race. For example, Spell (2014) found that White women were more likely to have hookups with strangers, whereas Black women were more likely to hookup with an acquaintance. The participants in the current study were Illinois State University college students who were asked to complete a questionnaire about their most recent hookup experience (e.g., time since last hookup, relationship with hookup partner), a scale assessing hookup reactions (Paul et al., 2000) and a scale assessing hookup outcomes (i.e., academic, social, romantic, and sexual outcomes; Owen et al., 2014). My goal was to further explore hookup reactions and outcomes by examining differences among Black, White, and Latina women. The implications of the findings will be discussed in further detail.
