*Hooking up, numbing out*

Unhooked exposes the often shocking realities of the hookup cultures and mentalities permeating not only college campuses, but also high schools and middle schools today. The candid accounts of the females interviewed for the book reveal that on the surface, hooking up (regularly and indiscriminately) may seem to be the solution for young women whose lives are already over-committed and whose passions are focused on achieving a successful career--while avoiding the potential encumbrances of emotional relationships. But, underneath it all, these young women still desire to "love and be loved." Painting the picture of the hookup culture in all its vivid colors and eye-opening/jaw-dropping details, Laura Session Stepp reveals the current plight of young women who relate with their bodies--at the expense of their psyches and hearts.
