The New Booty Call: How College Women are Changing the Game

Sexual Promiscuity on College Campuses – How Women are Taking Control of Their Future

I can still remember my first weekend at college. It was last August, and I have vivid memories of girls wearing über short skirts and guys wearing Jordans with black socks, basketball shorts, tank tops, and snapbacks (apparently it’s a really killer style, these days).

The article’s primary concentration is on the more dominant position that women are taking in society with a specific focus on the dating culture at college campuses and how women are utilizing it to their advantage.

Universities have always been like a petri dish of constant hookups, breakups, and all of the juicy details in between. Traditionally, when college folk went to parties and mingled, the confident frat guy would make his
