  • "Sex in college has never been simple. And with modern technology, the rising rates of sexual assault and STDs (Sexually transmitted diseases), and an increasingly ambiguous hookup culture, it is getting ever more complex. This book is a compassionate, funny, and well-researched primer for the modern college student, both male and female ... Based on author Cindy Pierce's experience talking to college students and on extensive social and medical research, it provides trustworthy answers for pressing questions about all aspects of the college social scene. It will prepare entering freshmen for their new environment and continue to provide helpful and supportive guidance through senior year and beyond."--Provided by publisher.
