Relationships are basically, what makes the world go round. All provide a sense of personal fulfillment, whether it'd be positive or negative. A good example are companies. Companies make strong relationships with their customers, in turn, customers spend more money buying their wares. Another example is the relationship between parents and children. Two texts that focus on these relationships are; “Only Daughter” by Sandra Cisneros and “Mother Tongue” by Amy Tan. The texts heavily revolve around the familial connection between a parent and a daughter. Actually, it s so emphasized on that connection, you might say to yourself,”Why is this so important?” It's important because connections go hand in hand with personal fulfillment. Explanations
Bonding is the biological and emotional process that creates an importance of one person to another through time, particularly at young ages. Bonding is a process that cannot ever be completely undone. Bonding occurs through intimate interaction between or among people, such as babies feeding and two or more people living together. A tumultuous experience or a tumultuous relationship can bond people just as much as joyful or easy experiences or relationships.
Throughout history the need to reproduce has been the driving force in continuing the human species. This need to reproduce has acquired the name sex, which can hold various different meanings and have a wide range of actions that attach to the word itself. In the 21st century there has been this new phenomenon stemming from sex known as hooking up. Now you may ask, what it hooking up? The general definition is casual sex between two individuals who could be either friends or acuminates (who please each other’s physical need for sexual intercourse.) Usually there are no strings attached meaning that there is no emotional attachment from the sex, just a physical trade of pleasure between the two parties. The
More modern ideas about hookups encourage sexual behavior, which includes sex before marriage, and other forms of uncommitted sex. This is shown through many forms of media including books, magazines, and television. There were many different movies made such as “Hooking up”, and “No Strings Attached” that encourage the idea of uncommitted sex. The article begins to look at things such as sexual scripts and uncommitted sex. This explains that for men, sex is critical for their male identity, and they prefer sex with no relation, whereas women are sexually objectified and are the ultimate deciders of whether or not sex is going to occur. In the popular media, the images of sex are becoming more centered around sexual pleasure instead of focusing on the reproductive motive. However there are some gender scripts as well which may contribute to the confusion and expectations of hookups. In casual sexual encounters, there seems to be some deviations in the scripts in relation to casualness and emotional investment in the sexual partners. Men described sexual encounters as being friends with benefits, and that it was nonrelational, but when being interviewed, men mentioned alternative definitions that seemed to relate more to potential romantic relationships and emotional
According to Macionis (2012), the term sex “refers to activity that leads to sexual gratification” (p. 178). Sexual activity is guided by culture (Macionis, 2012). In other words, its practices and attitudes vary by region (Macionis, 2012). Although the historical norm for sex has been between adult partners, sexual practices and attitudes has changed over the years to include hooking up, which has emerged as a pattern among society in the United States, but can caused problems in today’s culture.
The “hook up”, a developing phenomenon that has been rapidly growing in adolescents and young adults in the western world for the last decade, which has resulted in a cultural dating shift, an escalation of drugs and alcohol abuse, as well as emotional and physical consequences (). The term “hook up” is known as brief uncommitted sexual between two individuals who are not romantically involved but consensually indulge in sexual activities including kissing, oral sex, penetrative intercourse (Garcia 2012). A hook up more often than not originates from people enjoying a party or club like setting, but can facilitated between individuals who are familiar with one another or are complete strangers (Bogle ). Most hook up scenarios are a series
It is the "essence" of relationships. No relationship can exist by defintion unless the parties sacrifice some individual autonomy. On the other hand, too much connection can destroy a relationship. When two people are so tighly connected, their individual identity becomes lost. They are seen as one, instead of two seperate people. To balance the pair, each person in the relationship needs to define what their standard of separateness and connectedness is. Each must agree on how much "together time" and "separate time" is needed in order to establish and maintain a posive relationship.
There is often an unhealthy stigma against twenty-something women for having casual sex. The excerpt “Is Hooking up Bad for Women?” in Skolnick and Skolnick’s Family in Transition, has much to say about the subject of millennials sleeping around. This section of the textbook was written by Elizabeth A. Armstrong, Laura Hamilton, and Paula England; discussing their opinions and findings on the subject. The three women discuss why women have been more prone to casual hookups, and the pros and cons of these decisions.
Hooking up has become an increasingly studied culture by many sociologists around the country. These studies have been done to understand the shift from the old culture of dating to the new culture of hooking up that we experience now. Many people find it interesting that the kids of our generation have become so sexualized and carefree compared to the college days of our parents. Many people wonder how we got to this point and how the dynamics of hookups work, and why we continue to go on with them even sometimes at cost of our mental and physical help. One of these people was Kathleen A. Bogle, who wrote an entire book on the subject called, Hooking Up: Sex, Dating, and Relationships on Campus, which is the focal point of this essay.
In the book, Hooking Up, the author, Kathleen Bogle, devotes most of her research to interviewing male and female undergraduates and alumni. Throughout her book, she uses various methods to expose the complexity of hookups and the actualities of the gender “rules” on college campuses. The techniques Bogle uses are: explaining the norms of the hooking up culture prior to the twentieth century, describing how the ambiguity of the term “hooking up” on college campuses creates misconstrued ideas about other college students, and comparing the difference between males and females in the hook up culture.
In the article, Is hooking up bad for young women, can be summed up by saying that young girls having sex is nothing new. The term hooking up has a both negative and positive aspects for girls. With the negative side, young girls are labeled more as a whore and a slut by their peers if their casual encounters are made public. While reading this article the thing that caught my attention the most was women who have had more sexual encounters with men have less desire for sex, then women who have been in a long term relationship. Many people who have been in a long relationship, feel like because they've been with that guy for so long, they must have sex, as opposed to the girls who aren't in a relationship don't know who to have sex with. The
There is a variety of relationships that a person experiences in a lifetime. A relationship is something that connects two or more people emotionally, mentally or physically. Relationships can be with family, friends, a significant other, and co-workers. Some relationships can help boost self-confidence and self-worth if the relationship goes well or ends well. Although some relationships can tear a
The world around us is immense. It is filled with extraordinary individuals, places and experiences. The bonds we form are ceaseless. Every relationship that is formed is one that we would like to experience over and over. Relationships in the world vary from one individual to another but, it is a solid connection that we as a people want to shape in our lives. The different connections that are formed, shape our identity and the identity of who we will become in the coming future. A relationship is a way in which two or more objects, people or concepts are connected. To me a relationship can mean many things but one way that I believe every relationship has is beauty. A way where objects, concepts and people can connect is beautiful because it Is new.
Orenstein began her quest for an honest account of today’s hook-up culture as her daughter approached adolescence. Prior to this point in her life, she had only heard from friends about how teenage girls were treated in today’s culture, now she needed to know if this type of culture really did exist. Since she had been chronicling girl’s lives for over twenty-five years, it was an obvious place to start (Orenstein, P., 2016). She interviewed girls, psychologists, sociologists, pediatricians, educators, and journalist to uncover the ugly truth.
