Lisa Wade: 'American Hookup'

Town Hall Seattle says
“Hooking up” is a phrase that has come to dominate the world of sex and dating on college campuses. Occidental professor Lisa Wade has done extensive research into hookup culture and the impact it is having on romance and relationships among American college students. In American Hookup, she offers a nonjudgmental and comprehensive view of the impacts and implications of this new sexual culture. With insights for parents, educators, and students, Wade situates hookup culture within the history of sexuality, the evolution of higher education, and the feminist movement. With a focus on enjoyment and connection, she endeavors to explain what young people are seeking in their sexual relationships and how much satisfaction hookup culture provides. She talks about the way hook-up culture appeals to some, but frustrates, and even harms, many others. Instead of trying to turn back the clock, Wade encourages considering where we can go from here.
