Chapter 1 of the Online Book Club This Week!

October 14, 2013 | Catie

by NeW summer intern Catie Verano, student at Hillsdale college

This week in our Online Book Club, we will discuss chapter 1, “Hookup World: The Why, the What, the How, the Classic vs. the Serial.” In this chapter, Freitas begins by surveying thousands of students in hopes of gaining the proper understanding of the ‘hookup’ and its various forms. She gives an abundance of statistical information about students’ sexual activity, but goes beyond that in researching the students’ quality of experience and their feelings surrounding their hookups. For those who are unfamiliar with the hookup culture, this chapter will help clarify its characteristics.

We look forward to reading your comments!
