The hookup culture isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.
Princeton University’s student newspaper The Daily Princetonian is kicking off a new series on love, sex, and dating. The first installment is an anonymous letter from a female student about the hookup culture:
“...I just wish someone had told me that the reality of hooking up is monumentally different from what I was expecting. I wish someone had told me that you don’t get into a relationship by meeting someone on the Street and taking him home or that they won’t even text you the next day.”
The lie that is “sexual freedom” is revealed when young girls realize they long for more than random encounters, that they were made for and desire relational security. The hookup culture separates sex from its meaning and hurts people like this student in the process. What they’re looking for is wholeness, not brokenness.
I talk about these and other consequences of sexual brokennes in our new six part curriculum series. Come to thePointRadio.org to learn more. I’m John Stonestreet.
