Sex and the soul book
Sex and the Soul by Donna Freitas - PopMattersStepp, a Washington Post reporter who often writes about youth trends, goes on to define hooking up in terms of detachment: it can range from a single kiss to intercourse; occur in public or in private; involve close friends or complete strangers; and spark a relationship or simply be the relationship in itself. Yet her work fails to justify such attention. Though there are references to several scientific studies, she profiles just nine girls, all of them from similar economic and geographic backgrounds. Equally as limiting is her tone, which at points is unnecessarily scolding to young women. Freitas also presents an impressive amount of qualitative evidence in exploring how hookup culture affects both young men and women on college campuses. Indeed, methodology -- presented within clear and concise writing -- is the heart of Sex and the Soul. Conversely, those at Catholic and other private and public institutions tend to be more privately spiritual than openly religious, and tend to keep their sex lives and spirituality separate from each other.
