    I strongly recommend this to anyone that has a teenage daughter The hook up culture is shocking but oh so true I think I escaped high school college as this was beginning and I can vouch for it s awful truth Our culture promotes girls to be independent women and concentrate on careers before love What does that leave them with The idea that hook ups and one night stands without feeling is power and makes them immune to hurt and distracting emotions with the opposite sex Laura Sessi I strongly recommend this to anyone that has a teenage daughter The hook up culture is shocking but oh so true I think I escaped high school college as this was beginning and I can vouch for it s awful truth Our culture promotes girls to be independent women and concentrate on careers before love What does that leave them with The idea that hook ups and one night stands without feeling is power and makes them immune to hurt and distracting...

    I thought this book was absolutely terrific I read some of the other reviews where readers complained the author advocated going back to the 1950s where girls acted like demure ladiesI didn t get that all Obviously this is a small and mostly white, upper class segment of young women, but I trusted her reporting Her argument is that girls have completely misappropriated the term Feminism to mean sleeping around, and they ve missed the point of it all She believes and I agree that the I thought this book was absolutely terrific I read some of the other reviews where readers complained the author advocated going back to the 1950s where girls acted like demure ladiesI didn t get that all Obviously this is a small and mostly white, upper class segment of young women, but I trusted he...

    This book was rather depressing to me as someone who must raise a daughter in this modern world As a woman who grew up in the post sexual revolution climate, I know what it s like to come of age in a world where women who believe in modesty or abstinence are, in some sense at least, outsiders But even in the 90 s, when I went to college, things were not as lax as they are described here I was aware that hooking up went on in college, but it was easy enough not to be a part of that scene, an This book was rather depressing to me as someone who must raise a daughter in this modern world As a woman who grew up in the post sexual revolution climate, I know what it s like to come of age in a world where women who believe in modesty or abstinence are, in some sense at least, outsiders But even in the 90 s, when I went to college, things were not as lax as they are described here I was aware that hooking up went on in college, but it was easy enough not to be a part of that scene, and I hardly think it was the norm I believe dating was still the norm It makes me wonder how much has changed since I graduated from college, and how much is simply exaggerated and sensationalized by journalists and nonfiction book writers Either way, I am glad thatandbooks like this are being written, books that sound a trumpet horn to young women to...

    I still don t know how I feel about this book I didn t read it all the way through because she states her thesis on every page The book is full of short synopses examining young women s lives in what Stepp calls the unhooked culture, where one night hookups take precedence over long term relationships She uses a lot of anecdotes to shock the rea...

    This book falls a bit under the self help read Not a normal book that I would enjoy, however one that should be read by all who feel as though they can t seem to get things right regarding love.More emphasis on the college era but still applicable to anyone who s every felt used.
