Normally, cultural trends come from California.
However, it seems a school on the West Coast is taken a cue from New York University, by creating a “Hook-Up” Facebook page for its campus. Campus Reform writer Katherine Timpf has the details:
Students at University of California – Berkeley now have a Facebook page dedicated to helping them reconnect with the strangers they had sex with when they were drunk.
UC Berkeley Hook-Ups has scored 1,784 likes since its Feb. 19 launch.
The highly organized page, entitled “UC Berkeley Hook-Ups,” has already proven to be a hit among Berkeley’s famously free-spirited student population. Since its launch on Feb 19, it has already scored 1,784 likes and nearly daily usage.
“This page is specifically designed to help the fellow drunk locate his/her Berk town hookup,” the about section of the page says. “If you recognize you or your story post message me with your number.
“We will keep everything anonymous until we find a match,” it continues.
..[A] student describes bringing a man back to her room “only to find” that her roommates were already having an orgy there — leading them to “join in on all the fun.”
The moderator of the page takes an active role, urging “Girls we need more of your stories!”
Some of the posts describe students have sex in classroom buildings, which is consistent with a Campus Reform report from December on a sex ed column printed in the school’s official paper which provided a detailed guide on how to have sexual encounters in the campus library and classrooms.
Timpf has further details:
The Facebook also includes anonymous confessions, such as one student admitting she had sex with her roommate’s boyfriend and wants to continue to do so.
That particular post generated a rush of comments. A commentator named Westerly Gates called the poster a “whore,” and another called Benson Dingus wrote:
“This is why all women should be placed in individual breeding stalls and fed just enough to survive until the ripe age of 18 where they are euthanized to make more room for the new crop of breeders. If the girl does not create young, they are euthanized early.”
Although the page’s moderator does promise anonymity, students often comment on the posts by tagging suspected participants — mentioning them by their full names and linking to their profile pages.
