Alex Peters A.) Clearly identify the moral dimension of the issue: The moral decision at hand is, is it okay to randomly encounter in sexual interaction with people while drunk? What will this do for someone in the long run? Are a few notches on the belt or bragging rights worth getting an STD? In the end, I will be hurting my reputation and possibly my health. B.) Who are the interested parties? What are their relationships? In this decision who can possibly be at stake? First and foremost you are at stake when randomly engaging in sexual encounters, the person you engage with, and all of the people that someone encounters after the prior encounter. First, you and your partner are at risk; either person can be at risk for and STD from each other. With at least twenty-five sexually transmitted diseases out in the world there is always a good chance that anyone can get a STD. Just because I wanted to drink excessively and try to find a partner to “hook-up” with is not worth getting sick or dying over. Usually, a person’s standards are lowered greatly while under the influence of alcohol. From personal experience I can vouch for the prior statement. I have a high respect for women and women of good moral standards, but while drunk it doesn’t seem to matter nearly as much. I think this is a problem for me and society. Too many people are going out to just find a one night stand and add notches to their belt. Due to recent events I have reconsidered what I have been doing and try to find girls with some self- respect and are good looking when I am sober.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
