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.

“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
“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
”A major strength of the book is the use of interviews of college students and alumni. The qualitative approach allows readers to get a glimpse of the experiences and observations of the respondents in their own words. Bogle debunks the media’s notion of hooking up and offers a definition of what “hooking up” means to respondents. A must read for undergraduate students, faculty and staff, and parents. Summing up: Highly recommended.“-Choice
“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
