It looks like girls are no longer solo in bearing the brunt of stigma for sleeping around. According to a study by the American Sociological Association, almost half of college students judge men and women with similar sexual histories by the same standard and hold equally negative attitudes towards both their male and female peers who they believe hook up “too much.”
