Re: “Sleeping Around Craigslist

Fantastic article and very timely! I am a doctoral student at UCSF and I am conducting my dissertation research on exactly this subject: Women that use the internet to "hook up" for casual sex. In fact, Craigslist was the inspiration around creating the study.

As an (aspiring) academic, I’ve found that there is a huge disconnect between what is available in the popular media around casual sex versus what's being published in academic circles around similar issues. Most of the academic literature focuses on historically marginalized or "deviant" populations using the internet to hook up and potential risks to sexual health. It seems like very few people want to talk about their mothers, sisters, daughters, aunties, surfing CL and meeting casual sex partners over lunch for a quickie....

So, of course I shall now rather shamelessly plug my dissertation research study and ask for your collective insights, Eastbay Express readers, into online dating, “hooking up” and love in the modern era!

If you are interested in sharing your opinions (besides commenting here, of course), there are two ways women can participate in the study: through an in person interview with me or through an online survey. Participation is confidential and the study has been approved by the UCSF Committee on Human Research.
If you're interested, please email me: and I can provide you more details.

Anna and Lily, I am so glad that you shared! (And I'd love to talk to you too!)
