Abstract

Research on adolescent sexual relationships has flourished in recent years, yet much work remains to be done to define and understand different relational contexts of sexual activity, including romantic relationships, friends with benefits, and hook-ups. This research project hopes to help close gaps in the literature by comparing multiple contexts of sexual activity at once. This longitudinal study predicted context of sexual involvement over the course of the first semester of college and found differences between hooking up, friends with benefits, and romantic relationships.
