Here is a teaser from an excellent article about the “hook-up” culture and pornography’s destructive nature. The article may be found here.
Nevertheless, the advent of the so-called hook-up culture has fostered expectations among young men that encounters with co-eds naturally lead to no-strings-attached sex. Sex is not preceded by an altar, commitment, “I love you”, or even a decent conversation. In a hook-up culture anonymous sex is not a scandal but, it would seem, the ideal, for when sex is depersonalized, it cannot lead to the complications associated with affection, vulnerability, and the desire to sacrifice for the good of the other person.
On a related note, the biggest problem I had with the Twilight series was Jacob’s pursuit of Bella even after she rejected him time and time again, even forcing kisses on her. He was a predator, but still somehow painted in a good light. What a terrible message to send to young girls!
