I'm glad that brough up this topic. Talking about it more in a professionally way is making me and everyone else aware of what is becoming a norm in our society.

Yeah, I am part of this hook-up culture and I love it. I don't understand why only the possible negatives are presented in the end of the video. Learning how to sexually relate to ourselves and to others is an important and exciting time.

The way I understand "hook up culture" is that one meets another man and they share culture with each other and be able to adjust and adopt it.
