TheEnd of Sex:
Thisbook was written by Dr. Freitas, who is an assistant of religion in aBoston University. In the book, the main message of the author isthat the students should not have sex due to the pressure theyreceive from the society as a whole. On the contrary, they shouldparticipate in any sexual relationship they want, even casual in aslong as it is what they want. The author uses interviews and surveysthat are demographic to give an anthropological survey on hooking upand dating in the campuses that exist today.
Theauthor uses convincing arguments to show the effects that thisculture has on the society. This culture for one degrades women tothe point they are objects and leaves the males in a constant pursuitof satisfying their sexual anxieties. She also does this on a tonethat is not rebuking or easily offending and is thus easy to read.She encourages students to have open discussions of what they wantfrom relationships.
Therewere several assumptions that she made in her book too one of themis that everybody affected in this culture is straight in terms oftheir sexuality. This is because the basis of his argument is that ithappens between girls and boys. Also, the author assumes thateveryone that is affected by this culture is a college student. Thisis evident because she argues that the fun happens during the campuslife. For this reason, those outside of the campus are not affectedso to speak. This book addresses the issue at hand well and willintroduce to the educators and parents to the key to pressure freenation.
