This Wednesday our online book club will discuss chapter 3, “Opting In to a Culture of Casual Sex.” The hookup culture is defined by casual sex; however, many of its participants are not as laid back about sex as it would appear. Many feel unhappy, unfulfilled, and apathetic about their sex lives but continue to hookup and perpetuate this culture. Freitas finds that the hookup culture promotes irresponsible and reckless sexuality that is detrimental to our youth and future generations.
It’s not too late to pick up your own copy of “The End of Sex: How Hookup Culture Is Leaving a Generation Unhappy, Sexually Unfulfilled, and Confused About Intimacy.” Don’t miss this week’s blog, and be sure to leave your comments!
