Casual sex became common several decades ago with college females, and they remain at the leading edge. Dateless sex will come soon to the schools and watering holes near you, but I suspect it has already arrived.
v Old school: Boys went to college for an education and to mature, but they were hopeful of perhaps gaining some sexual experience. Girls went there to find a husband.
v New school: Women attend college expecting or learning to participate in masculine-style sexual freedom. Men go for the sexual opportunities and pleasure of seeing women play stupid. For many of both sexes, education is mere by-product.
v Sexually active women corrupt the dating game for the rest. They ignore the feminine decorum that tends to tame boys into dating.
v Females look for fun and excitement first and forego negotiating for the feminine way. They join wild parties indiscriminately. They drink excessively, and yield as matter of protocol. They let males set socializing values, standards, and expectations designed to produce sex without dating.
v Anecdotal but not inconsequential: One Duke University senior claimed she never had a date in college and knew no one that had. The custom seems common and getting more so. Tom Wolfe’s novel, I Am Charlotte Simmons, describes college life as he researched it. However, no father of a college bound daughter should read the book.
