Offering invaluable insights for parents, educators, and students, Wade situates hookup culture within the history of sexuality, the evolution of higher education, and the unfinished feminist revolution. Working with new research, she maps out a punishing emotional landscape marked by unequal pleasures, competition for status, and sexual violence. She discovers that the most privileged students tend to like hookup culture the most, and she considers its effects on racial and sexual minorities, students who "opt out", and those who participate ambivalently.
Accessible and open-minded, compassionate and brutally honest, American Hookup explains where we are and how we got here, asking not "How do we go back?" but "Where do we go from here?"

Great book! I didn't love the voice of the reader.
The book was great! However, it was at times hard to listen to because the reader has a robotic voice that is more suited for giving directions through traffic. Very robotic.

Féministe view of Sex
Hyperbolic, féministe view of sex, love and relationship. Lobe-sided and minimalisation of humaine needs for love,meaning of life and spirituality regardless of their sex. This is a sad unscientific and slanted study base on self evaluation of small number of students introspection. Not worth your time.
