This Wednesday our Online Book Club will discuss chapter 8, “Opting Out of Hookup Culture via The Date.” According to many college students, traditional dating is a thing of the past. Hooking up replaces the first date nowadays and Freitas is suspicious of this practice. She discovers that the majority of young adults hook up to avoid dating awkwardness and possible rejection. However, students, including men, secretly wish for romance and dating. Join in this week’s discussion as we examine this phenomenon.
You can still pick up your own copy of “The End of Sex: How Hookup Culture Is Leaving a Generation Unhappy, Sexually Unfulfilled, and Confused About Intimacy.”
