Description

The purpose of this study was to attempt to discover statistical predictors of college student engagement in casual (hookup) sex. A nested multiple regression analysis revealed that religious internalization (F(199)=6.536, p<.000) and tobacco use (F(199)=4.0914, p<.001) caused significant changes in the regression model. Alcohol use, marijuana use, parental involvement/conflict, and pornography use were not significant. The β values produced by the regression became significant in model two, specifically for identified regulation (β= -0.23, t(199)= -3.412, p<.000), remaining significant through the rest of the regression, increasing somewhat in model 4, for tobacco use (β=.193, t(199)= 2.50, p=.013) Results show a strong indication that religious internalization is a strong predictor of risk behaviors within a prohibitionist university setting.
