Hooking Up Sex in Guyland homework help
Write a 300 word essay on the reading below and answer the questions
In this article, Kimmel (2008) discusses several differences between males and females concerning their propensity to “hook up” (casual sexual encounters) during adolescence and early adulthood. One quote from the article reads:
“Guys who hook up a lot are seen by their peers as studs; women who hook up a lot are seen as sluts who “give it up”. According to Duke’s study of campus sexual behavior, “Men and women agreed that a double standard persists: men gain status through sexual activity while women lose status” (p.197)
Do you believe the above quote to be true? Why or why not?
Additionally, do you think one’s perceptions of how to behave (whether or not it is acceptable to “hook up” frequently) affects ones actions? Please explain your answer using evidence from the Week 4 materials to support your answer.
