    DescriptionIt happens every weekend: In a haze of hormones and alcohol, groups of male and female college students meet at a frat party, a bar, or hanging out in a dorm room, and then hook up for an evening of sex first, questions later. As casually as the sexual encounter begins, so it often ends with no strings attached; after all, it was "just a hook up." While a hook up might mean anything from kissing to oral sex to going all the way, the lack of commitment is paramount. Hooking Up is an intimate look at how and why college students get together, what hooking up means to them, and why it has replaced dating on college campuses. In surprisingly frank interviews, students reveal the circumstances that have led to the rise of the booty call and the death of dinner-and-a-movie. Whether it is an expression of post-feminist independence or a form of youthful rebellion, hooking up has become the only game in town on many campuses. In Hooking Up, Kathleen A. Bogle argues that college life itself promotes casual relationships among students on campus. The book sheds light on everything from the differences in what young men and women want from a hook up to why freshmen girls are more likely to hook up than their upper-class sisters and the effects this period has on the sexual and romantic relationships of both men and women after college. Importantly, she shows us that the standards for young men and women are not as different as they used to be, as women talk about "friends with benefits" and "one and done" hook ups. Breaking through many misconceptions about casual sex on college campuses, Hooking Up is the first book to understand the new sexual culture on its own terms, with vivid real-life stories of young men and women as they navigate the newest sexual revolution.

    Review quote
    "Bogle is a smart interviewer and gets her subjects to reveal intimate and often embarrassing details without being moralizing. This evenhanded, sympathetic book on a topic that has received far too much sensational and shoddy coverage is an important addition to the contemporary literature on youth and sexuality." Publishers Weekly "Bogle's prose engages the reader, and her positive rapport with her interviewees provides confidences typically reserved for best friends. A useful resource for college students who want to know what hooking up means to their classmates, Bogle's book is also relevant for parents trying to figure out why their darn kids are running around the bases backward." The Philadelphia Inquirer "Hooking Up is a welcome, empirical addition that informs all readers of the collegiate state of affairs - sexual and otherwise. It will be of particular interest to scholars in the fields of gender, sexuality, family, relationships, and higher education." Rachel Kalish, Gender & Society "This work is an excellent reflection on the continuing double standards for men and women and the consideration of gender norms in our post-feminist culture will be appreciated by gender studies scholars as well as by researchers and practitioners interested in late adolescent and emerging adult sexuality. Hooking Up also serves as a valuable reference for those who seek to understand (and decode) the sexual terminology and encounters of youth and young adults." Journal of Youth and Adolescence "A page turner! This book should be required reading for college students and their parents! Bogle doesn't condemn hooking up, but she does explain it. This knowledge could help a lot of young people make better choices and get insight into their own behavior whether or not they choose to hook up." Pepper Schwartz, author of Everything You Know about Sex and Love Is Wrong "In her ambitious sociological study, Kathleen Bogle, an assistant professor of sociology and criminal justice at La Salle University, offers valuable insight on the hook-up craze sweeping college campuses and examines the demise of traditional dating, how campus life promotes casual sex, its impact on post-college relationships, and more. Don't let your college freshman leave home without it." Main Line Today "Hooking Up uses interviews with both women and men to understand why dating has declined in favor of a new script for sexual relationships on college campuses... Bogle presents a balanced analysis that explores the full range of hooking-up experiences." Joel Best, author of Flavor of the Month: Why Smart People Fall for Fads
