One thought on “The Hidden Emotional Costs of the “Hook-up Culture”

  • March 13, 2019 at 8:49 am

    “Many women report needing to be drunk to tolerate hooking-up with a stranger and as a way to rationalize what happened the next day.”

    And a woman who is drunk cannot give consent. A man who hooks up with an intoxicated woman, who’s consent is invalidated by her intoxication, may be committing sexual assault.

    I think this is the real reason young men are refraining from sex. It’s simply too risky for men.
