Colloquium: Sex is Cheap

Colloquium: Sex is Cheap

In an effort to nourish collegial dialogue across disciplinary boundaries among faculty and students, EKU Libraries is hosting hour-long, informally moderated colloquiums on selected Fridays at 3:30 p.m. in the new Crabbe Library Research and Instruction Commons Conference Room, 204G.

Each colloquium session is devoted to text, video or audio material chosen by a faculty member who moderates the discussion. The material may be of any subject, scholarly or topical, peer-reviewed or popular, as well as original work. The only requirement is that the item(s) under discussion be accessible online (including any of EKU Libraries’ many subscription resources).

On Friday, March 18, Rob Sica will moderate discussion of Sex is Cheap: Why young men have the upper hand in bed, even when they’re failing in life:

We keep hearing that young men are failing to adapt to contemporary life. Their financial prospects are impaired—earnings for 25- to 34-year-old men have fallen by 20 percent since 1971. Their college enrollment numbers trail women’s: Only 43 percent of American undergraduates today are men. Last year, women made up the majority of the work force for the first time. And yet there is one area in which men are very much in charge: premarital heterosexual relationships.
