Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Hooking-up is the term du jour, connoting a wide range of consensual sexual activities, with no pretense of starting a relationship, between young, mostly college-age students. This study by Bogle, an assistant professor of sociology and criminal justice at LaSalle University—based on 76 interviews with mostly white college students and recent graduates from 2001 to 2006—gives a wide range of voices and opinions on hooking-up culture. While there are few surprises (women are still, for the most part, subjected to a punishing sexual double standard)—Bogle is a smart interviewer and gets her subjects to reveal intimate and often embarrassing details without being moralizing. She interrogates her subjects about alcohol use, the relationship of gay and lesbian students to hook-up culture, and opting out of hook-up culture. Bogle's work is important because it offers a complex portrait of young people grappling the best way they know how with the sexual realities of a rapidly changing world. Although limited in scope, 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.

Review

"Remarkable because while it avoids the alarmist tone of the dominant discourse it does not turn a blind eye to the gendered inequality and sexual double standards that characterize hook-up culture, nor does it ignore the individual-level effects those structured inequalities have on women, men and the relationships they form during and after college."
-Sexuality & Culture,

“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,

Customer Reviews

This book is very, very interesting and honest.
Amanda Keegan
It would be a great idea that teachers, students, parents and future parents read and discuss the important topics being explained in this book.
Marcial Ignacio
This serious sounding term is actually vague as it can mean getting together for just kissing and necking or it can mean sexual intercourse.

This book just validated my entire college experience! The interviews Bogle did with college men and women show the true disparity between the sexes when it comes to hooking up. I was always the girl "hoping it would lead to something" and always seemed to find the guy who was thinking the opposite. Bottom line, I laughed out loud at many of the interviews and how they tied in with my experiences, and those of my girlfriends, on campus. Also, now that I am a parent, I would strongly recommend this book to parents of first-time college students so they have a clue as to what's going on on campus and how to talk to their son or daughter about it.

I just finished reading Hooking Up. What impressed me the most is that the author let the people she interviewed tell their stories so that it was the college students and twenty-something's themselves who reveal what hooking up is and how it affects them. I really appreciated that author was not judgmental and I bet that is why everyone who was interviewed seemed so forthcoming.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning more about what it's like to be a single man or woman today - including college students, young adults and their parents. I think women especially will find it eye opening.

From an extremely limited sample size (in race, class, sexual orientation, etc as identified by the author herself), flawed data retrieval (also author-identified), to large, sweeping assumptions, this book is not educational in any sense. I read it for a sociology class in college and it failed to provide accurate information about the subject. Please don't waste your time with this book.

But it appears that the author has some interesting things to say about the subject. When I was in college back in the 1970s, the Sexual and University Revolution were parking. Girls often wore so little in the way of clothing and what they did wear was often so full of holes at its peak, that they might as well have come to class naked. Naked coeds came before the "Coed Naked" t-shirt slogan.

I wrote a paper on this topic for Human Sexuality class in 2003. I got an A. :)
I found this book to be a boring and inaccurate account. Some quotes from students were amusing but in general the author did a very poor job of tackling a straight-forward topic. If she hadn't claimed to be enrolled in college in the early 1990's, I would have guessed that she is a baby boomer as her opinions and data collection methods were very prejudicial preventing her from really understanding. I think she was perpetually in shock while collecting the data because things have changed and she just couldn't relate. She would have made a good U.S. Senator when President Clinton was being hounded about Monica Lewinsky. Yeah... That bad. Seriously.
Good things about this book are 1) the author references a few pertinent national statistics, 2) the author provides step by step directions for planning your own hookups (although you have to hunt n peck for them) and 3) the author sampled data from two universities: one public, one religious.
Bad things unfortunate are 1) data collection from two white schools hardly speaks for the many campuses across the nation. Clearly she ignored latino, black n asian students and she assumed social mores are consistent across white schools. I'm in sunny Cali n believe you me from her perspective things are a lot lot worse over here. Also if she cross referenced the data with the rate of teenage pregnancies or abortions or young marriages in the state, it might be more helpful. 2) the statistics cited were incomplete and misleading. She compares WWII to 1950s-1960s and then to 2000s. ie. nothing useful came out of the 70's, 80's or 90's apparently. Feminism and the divorce rate didn't influence anything.

Mothers should get this book and read it. It is about the sexual landscape our daughters are finding themselves in today. Then turn around and give it to your daughters! They WILL READ IT! And, this is the best part, you both will have an informative discussion that is safe for your daughter! It is the people in the book, who you talk about, but your daughter can safely share her views. Your daughter should read this book before going away to college, but any time is good. I highly recommend. I also gave it to several of my friends. If you have a daughter this book is a must!

This was interesting, but the author seemed to write like more a student giving a report than a respectable author telling of their experiences and insight. The whole book was a very long and somewhat trivial - just simple numbers and lots of conversations with modern college students. It tells us that there is a modern hook-up culture and offers some proof of it with numbers, but obviously you don't need numbers to prove what everyone in this country already knows. She offers no moral grounds, solutions or otherwise --she even says directly that there is no normative analysis of the situation. It's a simple study that didn't need to be put into a book.
