The administrators of the site, which has more than 50,000 followers, call for “morals to fall” and it is also open for same-sex hook ups.
Danger lurks in these sites as many are unregulated; women who respond to the Facebook messages could fall into the trap of human traffickers disguised as blessers. “I did not choose to become a blesser; God appointed and blessed me to be a blesser,” says Serge Cabonge, a Congolese blesser, in an interview with South African news channel, e NCA. “When you ask for my number, I tell you straight away I can’t give you my number for free. For 75 percent of women in this country, without money there’s no love,” says Cabonge.
The study, titled "Predictors of Sexual Hookups: A Theory-Based, Prospective Study of First-Year College Women," surveyed 483 incoming first-year female college students several times over eight months.
It was published in May in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, an academic journal.
Other factors increasing the likelihood of hooking up included impulsivity, sensation-seeking, alcohol use, "social comparison orientation" and situational triggers.
Race, socioeconomic status, academics, cigarette smoking and "parental connectedness" were not predictive indicators of sexual hook ups, the authors concluded.
