Welcome to episode 04 of the Sexology Podcast, today my guest is Dr. Lisa Wade. Lisa is an associate professor of sociology at Occidental College. In this conversation, Lisa talks in-depth about the history of hook up culture, its impact on sexual attitudes and relationships, motivations behind the culture and its long-term effects.

 

She is currently on leave and living in New Orleans, the place she calls home. Her newest book, American Hookup, is about the emergence and character of the culture of sex that dominates college campuses today. Before receiving her PhD in sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Lisa earned an MA in human sexuality from NYU and a BA in philosophy from the University of California-Santa Barbara. 

Lisa has authored over a dozen academic research articles and a textbook on the sociology of gender. She also actively contributes to media, writing extensively for non-academic audiences and appearing on television and radio.

 

In this episode, you will hear:

 

  • How hook up culture is not an option but an imperative on college campuses
  • The hierarchical structure, motivations being related to status
  • How the structure is related more to heterosexual sex
  • Differences between the genders around hook up culture

  • The evolution that’s happening around the culture in the USA
  • The history of college rioting, resulting in the first social fraternity being founded in Schenectady, New York in 1825.
  • The cultural impact of the movie “Animal House”
  • How raising the drinking age from 18 to 21 gave more power to fraternity’s
  • The development of cities and their impact on a changing culture around sex
  • The dynamical differences of hook up culture for young people not in college
