Next Online Book Club: The End of Sex
Each semester and summer, NeW likes to host reviews and discussions about the books our chapters read in our Online Book Club
. In the past we’ve done Manning Up, Who Stole Feminism, A Return to Modesty,
and most recently Liberty is No War on Women.
Join us as our Online Book Club returns next week! We will begin discussing The End of Sex: How Hookup Culture is Leaving a Generation Unhappy, Sexually Unfulfilled, and Confused About Intimacy
by Donna Freitas. Freitas extensively researched the hookup culture and its dominance in the lives of college students across campuses. She argues that hookups and meaningless sex lead young adults to associate sexuality with boredom, ambivalence and loneliness. Until students explore the alternatives to hookup sex, they will continue to miss out on the romance and intimacy many truly desire.
Check back in tomorrow when we announce our reading schedule for this fall semester!
