UNHOOKED How Young Women Pursue Sex, Delay Love, and Lose at Both

by | Read by Ellen Archer

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

A journalist explains the current epidemic of disconnected sex--"hooking up"--and how it harms young women. Based on research with college students, this program is an exposé and analysis of how recent social forces have created such a culture. Providing a rich historical context and avoiding psychobabble, Stepp says some of the causes of this trend are less on-campus supervision, a loosening of moral standards, and the general empowerment of women. In particular, young women imagine they have more control and autonomy when they don't become emotionally involved with the men they sleep with. The expert discussion is enhanced by Ellen Archer's no-nonsense reading, which sounds casual but involves careful emotional resonance with the content. I can't imagine a more skilled and appealing performance. T.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
