Summary
The hookup is now part of college life. Yet the drunken encounter we always hear about tells only a fraction of the story. Rising above misinformation and moralizing, the author offers invaluable insights for parents, educators, and students. Wade situates hookup culture within the history of sexuality, the evolution of higher education, and the unfinished feminist revolution. Using new research, she maps out a punishing emotional landscape marked by unequal pleasures, competition for status, and sexual violence. She discovers that the most privileged students tend to like hookup culture the most, and she considers its effects on racial and sexual minorities, students who zopt out,y and those who participate ambivalently. American Hookup explains where we are and how we got here, asking not zHow do we go back?y but zWhere do we go from here?y
