Hooking Up on Campus

Download Audio

Maybe every generation has its sexual revolution — for, against, or ambivalent on what is now called "hooking up."

But one new thing for sure on American college campuses in recent years has been the almost universal emergence of the campus sex columnist. Nearly every college has one now — a student typing away on every new and old wrinkle in the sheets of passion.

Today we'll hear from three, resident experts on how a 21st century generation — raised on sex-saturated media, the internet and the booty call — are taking on their bodies, themselves, and each other. You may be surprised — or way ahead of the curve.
