Hooking-up is defined as a physically intimate encounter between two individuals whom are not romantically involved with one another (Stroke; et al., 2014). Past research has shown that students who reported that religion had a higher influence on their daily life also reported hooking-up less frequently (Simons, et al., 2009). Limited research has been conducted to measure whether priming persons with their religious beliefs- has an impact on the reported frequency of sexual health practices. This research extended the paradigm of Saroglou and Munoz-Garcia (2008) who employed a technique in which they asked participants questions about their values and personality traits in differing orders. This study sought to investigate if the placement of religious-based questions had an influence on reported frequency of sexual health practices. Findings from this study revealed that there was a negative correlation within all three question placement conditions at a .05 significance level.
