Summary, etc.: Hookup culture dominates the lives of college students today. Most students spend hours agonizing over their hopes for Friday night and, later, dissecting the evenings' successes or failures, often wishing that the social contract of the hookup would allow them to ask for more out of sexual intimacy. The pressure to participate comes from all directions, from peers, the media, and even parents. But how do these expectations affect students themselves? And why aren't parents and universities helping students make better-informed decisions about sex and relationships? This book discusses how college students are pressured by their peers to have casual sexual encounters which leave them ambivalent and isolated, and presents advice on how they can avoid unwanted sex and form healthy, more meaningful relationships.
