On hooking up

Posted By on Thu, Mar 1, 2007 at 6:13 AM

Laura Sessions Stepp, a Washington Post journalist who grew up in Arkansas, is stirring quite a bit of coverage of her new book, discussed at length in today's NY Times. Interesting debate. The lead:

WHEN Laura Sessions Stepp warned of the potentially damaging effects of “hooking up” in a new book, some people scoffed — particularly those who believe they were unscathed by their own unfettered years of casual sex.

Others, though, were incensed.

In “Unhooked: How Young Women Pursue Sex, Delay Love and Lose at Both” (Riverhead), Ms. Sessions Stepp, a Washington Post reporter, writes about how smart, ambitious young women do emotional damage to themselves by getting physical — making out to having sex — with men they are not dating or may have met for the first time.
