Students were also more willing to have sex outside of committed relationships because birth control was increasingly available. Oral sex was also on the rise, entering the lives of many young people.
Beginning in the late 1960s, the Women's Movement enforced the idea that women, like men, were sexual beings who had desires and the right to receive pleasure.
Women became less concerned with a man's status and more about his likelihood of survival.
In the first decade of the twentieth century, men "called upon" young women whom they fancied by (with the permission of her parents) visiting her home.
During this period, a couple's dating hisory was typically defined as the period of time two people spend together (in an exclusive or nearly exclusive, nonsexual relationship) before marriage.
However, in today's society, dating can be seen as its own social relationship, with no ending point or specific destination (such as marriage) required.
