Hooking Up: Liberation or Desperation?
Hooking up in the Twenty-First Century.

Elizabeth, 37, who is in a relationship says, "I think it's fine for women to hook up as long as you don't make a practice out of it. If you're out there every night, people are going to think there's something wrong with you."

Alonda, 41, and married, says, "I've been married for a while but I used to do it and I have single girlfriends who do. I think if you can remain unattached, that's great but how many women can actually do that?"

The bottom line: do we or don't we? If you have zero expectations of the next morning and feel confident that there won't be any hard feelings or regrets, go ahead and exercise your options (safely – use protection, ladies). But if you think you might be disappointed, hurt or otherwise adversely affected, this might be one time to take your mom's advice: if you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen.
