Chapter 3 of the Online Book Club this Week!

February 17, 2014 | Alexandra Gourdikian

This week during the Online Book Club we will be discussing Chapter 3 of Wonder Women: Sex, Power, and the Quest for Perfection, “Sex and the Social Contract.”

The sexual revolution of the 1960s and 1970s granted women new sexual freedom, a freedom that made sex priceless.  The availability of birth control beginning in 1957, the Roe v. Wade ruling that awarded women the right to choose abortion, Playboy magazine, and other literature encouraged women to engage in sexual intercourse free of commitment and fear of pregnancy.  Culture and society no longer clamored that sex should be within a marriage, monogamous, to procreate, or please one’s husband; sex was now passion, choice, and freedom.  Men and women could simply exchange sex for sex, no strings attached.  Spar comments on modern day dating culture, or lack there of, and today’s “hook up” culture; a culture in which both men and women treat each other as objects, playthings, and means to success.

We hope you will join in our discussion this week!

Happy reading!
