Adelaide sex hook up
Neither of these is a very helpful construction for a serious conversation about sexual assault.

That as many as one in four—or, at the very least, one in ten—young women have experienced sexual assault sounds so nightmarish.
A hook-up culture based on mutual use and lack of consequence can’t help but lead in the direction of unilateral use of another’s body.
