Through in-depth interviews with over seventy young women and a wide range of psychologists, academics, and experts, Peggy Orenstein investigates the hidden truths, hard lessons, and important possibilities of girls’ sex lives in the modern world. Orenstein pursues a much broader agenda than the media attention given to campus rape and assault; she examines how contemporary culture, saturated in sexting, casual hook-ups, and internet porn, affects high school and college girls and the choices they make. What she discovered was often surprising, frequently upsetting, and always illuminating. These powerful findings open up a dialogue on a potent, often silent, subtext of American life today—giving you comprehensive and in-depth information with which to understand, and navigate, this complicated new world.
