The hookup culture is prompted by the gap between earlier physical maturity and lower marry willingness. Hooking up is popular in Western countries among college students. However, compared with Western countries, Chinese have a lower tolerance for sex topics and avoid discussing them. This study researched the behaviors and attitudes of Wenzhou-Kean University students about Hook-up through online questionnaires and face-to-face interviews. The study found that about half of students have experienced hookups. By looking for correlations in the data, and combined with the specific information from the interviewees, the researchers concluded that hooking-up impact the student’s sexual behavior and intimate relationship in the future. However, hookup has a greater negative impact on female students both mental and physical. Besides, students’ hookup behavior will be influenced by interaction with each other. By comparing research in Western countries, the researchers also found that Chinese students would conceal their hookup experience to a greater extent, and consider it shameful. There is little research on hookup culture in China. Therefore, this article can give a glimpse of China's hook-up culture, and make the reference and contribution to the research in this field. Furthermore, it also plays an important role in the theme of teenagers’ mental health and intimate relationship.
