By Emily Esfahani Smith In , Hanna Rosin wrote a pretty devastating feature article in The Atlantic titled The End of Men , which argued that women are outpacing and outperforming men in the postindustrial economy. That article has since been transformed into a book by Rosin that will be coming out next month. Her most recent article in The Atlantic, Boys on the Side , is adapted from this forthcoming book. In the piece, she takes up what are, to her, the merits of the hook-up culture. That the hook-up culture is thriving on college campuses—thanks, in large part, to the women who drive it—is another sign that women are replacing men as the alphas of society. They are more likely to have a college degree and, in aggregate, they make more money. To put it crudely, feminist progress right now largely depends on the existence of the hookup culture. And to a surprising degree, it is women—not men—who are perpetuating the culture, especially in school, cannily manipulating it to make space for their success, always keeping their own ends in mind.
A Low Point at High Point University
Email The Love and Fidelity Network, a student-run group built to counter the hook-up culture at elite colleges, like Princeton, is releasing half-page ads this Valentine’s Day in 18 campus newspapers AP. It’s a default mode of impulsive sexuality with few, if any, responsibilities. There are two different ads. One shows a heart-shaped puzzle with a few pieces missing.
We’re filling in the missing pieces. In , students at Princeton were encouraged to attend something called Safe Sex Jeopardy, an event modeled after the long-running TV game show.
When most people think of sex and college, they think of a culture of students drinking, hooking up, and moving casually from one coed to the next. But, according to New York Magazine’s massive.
In Fiction and in Fact Last Taught: Winter Course Description Dartmouth College, as both a setting and object of analysis, has appeared in numerous cultural objects as alumni, students, and those looking in from the outside have reflected on the intellectual and social life of the College. In this writing-intensive course we will examine the range of representations of Dartmouth in a variety of prose sources including memoirs, novels, and essays.
We will write our own analyses of these texts before conducting historical research in Rauner, Dartmouth’s special collections library. Along the way, well learn something about the history of our institution, differences between various student experiences, and debates over the past and future of Dartmouth College. For the past few years I have been teaching courses on the idea of the university and the ways in which the university has been represented in a variety of media.
After thinking through the national problems that characterize the present crisis in higher education rising costs, student debt, violence on campus, vocationalization, corporatization, and adjunctification and more , I wanted to create a course that would examine local manifestations of the contested visions of the university. My institution, Dartmouth College, has a rich history and archive of visual, textual, and filmic texts that offer examples of these contesting views. We look at both the “texts” that construct and critique the public imagination of Dartmouth as well as primary sources, objects within Rauner , our special collections library.

Entitled “Destroying a Rape Culture,” it was written when a Dartmouth student was raped after being mentioned by name in a “rape guide” posted online by students at the college. That “guide” was one more addition to college “rape literature,” along with the collection of rape jokes published at Miami University and the rape chants by students at Yale and Saint Mary’s.
Yet many people still deny rape culture is pervasive in our society. I’ll borrow Bernstein’s spot-on definition of rape culture: News and World Report for that description. Nor is it a term used to ‘aggressively paint men as dangerous and as the root of evil’ as the Wisconsin-Madison’s student newspaper put it.
It appears that Tipton’s death is the natural, if rare, outcome of the kind of “extreme behavior” that new Dartmouth President Philip Hanlon recently lamented. In a speech to his school, Hanlon was referring to the Bacchanalian bouts of drinking, racist and sexist party themes, the hookup culture (and attendant sexual assault), and.
Sexual agency—the ability to make decisions about what you like to do sexually and then act upon them—has historically been denied to women. Many men straight and gay simply cannot imagine that real sex takes place without penetration with a penis. There are many ways people, including straight people, have and enjoy sex. Lesbians do not need a penis to have penetrative sex. Some lesbians use dildos for penetration; others do not, preferring fingers, hands, fists, tongues.
However, culturally, we refer to a very particular sexual act—penis in vagina—as, simply, sex. This may be particularly true for women, who have been told that their virginity confirms their virtue. In this hierarchy of sexual acts, heterosexual genital intercourse sits at the top. Other body parts such as the mouth and anus and other sexual acts such as oral sex, anal sex, manual sex, and masturbation may be extremely pleasurable, but are seen only as warm-ups to the real thing.
Advertisement This very limited definition of sex prevents people from recognizing lesbian sex as real sex. At best, what lesbians do is foreplay that can never reach completion on its own. Or, it is a turn-on for straight men and a staple of heterosexual pornography. A scene of two women kissing—increasingly common on mainstream television in shows such as Gossip Girl and Community—is often used to add titillation to an otherwise mundane plot.
As long as the women involved are conventionally pretty and feminine, this lesbianism is safe and sexy for prime-time viewing.

Still a Man’s World? However, with casual sexual encounters becoming ubiquitous for most young adults in America, women have appeared to reclaim their sexual identities. Once the status of women in society began to elevate, their need to have a man to take care of them began to dwindle. Therefore, drunk, careless and meaningless sexual encounters became the new norm. Lisa Wade, in her book American Hookup: The New Culture of Sex on Campus, seems to challenge the notion that this hookup culture actually liberates, or even benefits, women.
In her research, Wade followed various groups of students at a wide-ranging number of colleges and universities across the nation. She identified students based on their willingness to engage with the hookup culture on their respective campuses. Throughout her research, she gathered sentiments and opinions about sex from young adults. One finding was striking to me. In her analysis, she finds that young men on college campuses who engage in the hookup culture often exclusively choose women to hook up with based on the reactions they will get from their male friends.
This suggests that everyone in college is hooking up for the attention of the male population on their campus. The men who then interact with these women, as suggested by Wade, base their decisions to hookup with these women on what men in their social circles will think of the girl.
Is Lesbian Sex “Real Sex”?
Nothing to see here, move along now. You can practically feel the derision and dismissal dripping off the page: I do think that regulatory measures like these should be approached with a certain degree of healthy skepticism, because government regulation should not be undertaken lightly and without good evidence.

Look Out For Opportunities It hardly needs to be said that hot women are not just to be found in the confines of luxury lounge bars and nightclubs.
In fact, as the seasoned player knows, these locales can be some of the worst for meeting women. In major cities like New York, LA and London there are hot women literally everywhere—in the coffee shop, on the subway, on the way to work, working out at the gym and so on. Living in central London, on an average day I will see five women that I find attractive enough to date.

If a crime was committed, the victims should be filing police reports. But most do not simply because there can be serious penalties for filing false police reports.
But their are not consequences for filing a false claim to a highly bias on campus kangaroo court. The students are long gone by the time any law suits are filed.
