You cannot have too much subwoofer. A bigger subwoofer from the same manufacturer will always play lower, has lower distortion, more headroom, and better long term reliability if played at the same listening level. Hence, if budget is not an issue, going for the larger sub will always be beneficial, if there is no WAF or physical limitations. We have suggested room sizes that each subwoofer is recommended for. This of course is a very rough guide. Very much depends on individual tastes. We have customers who find four VTF H in a 1, cu.
Despite racy headlines suggesting that college kids are increasingly choosing casual liaisons over serious relationships, a new study presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association finds that just under one-third of college students have had more than one partner in the past year. Gen Xers were actually more likely to have sex weekly or more frequently compared with millenials, according to the research. In other words, today as in the past, most students having sex are still doing so in the context of some type of ongoing relationship.
College Students May Prefer Relationship Sex to Casual Hookups The research involved data on nearly 2, people from the General Social Survey, a nationally representative survey that asks a wide range of questions and has been carried out since Kathleen Bogle, author of Hooking Up:

Print Share Yesterday, Kristen Stewart fell out of the con-artist comedy Focus after Will Smith replaced Ben Affleck as the male lead; according to Variety , she was nagged by “the feeling that the age difference between the two would be too large a gap. It seems like time and time again, male movie stars are allowed to age into their forties, fifties, and even sixties while the ages of their female love interests remain firmly on one side of the big , but is this a perception borne out of reality?
To find out for sure, Vulture has analyzed the data of ten middle-aged leading men and the ages of the women they’ve wooed onscreen; you’ll see the results in the charts below. How’d we arrive at our conclusions? For each of our leading men, we tried to pick a representative sample of films — usually ten — where that A-lister had a notable love interest or wife, then we plotted the age gaps on our charts over the course of that star’s career. Because production dates for older movies can be hard to come by, we measured the stars’ ages on the day the film in question was released.
The results confirmed our suspicions: As leading men age, their love interests stay the same, and even the oldest men on our list have had few romantic pairings with a woman their own age or even one out of her mid-thirties.

Listen Share Few topics send the media into a panic like the idea of hookup culture on college campuses. But are college students actually having more sex than their parents did a generation ago? Research suggests the answer is no.
Native Americans, Sports Mascots, Racism & Cultural Appropriation “Makes crystal clear that the fight against Indian mascots is a central part of the wider struggle of Indigenous people for political, educational, and socio-economic justice today.”.
Email iStock We typically picture the movers and shakers in Silicon Valley as brilliant if geeky walking intellects, hunched over their computers, inventing new gadgets. Many titans of the tech world — entrepreneurs, executives, investors, founders of companies — regularly host drug-fueled, sex-laced parties.
For real reform, we have to dig deeper. A hedonistic ethic pervades all our public institutions. Universities hold sex weeks where porn stars are speakers and sex toy companies display their wares. Be like porn stars. It should surprise no one that the hookup culture is metastasizing on campuses. The rules of the game are:
Unequal Gender Ratios at Colleges Are Driving Hookup Culture
As one male friend recently told her: Bemoaning an anything-goes dating culture, Ms. In interviews with students, many graduating seniors did not know the first thing about the basic mechanics of a traditional date. What would you say? What words would you use?
Hook-up culture dumped by Millennials Good news from US study into relationship habits of 18 to 25 year olds. “While adults, and parents in particular, wring their hands about the ‘hook-up culture,’ research indicates that far fewer young people are hooking up than is commonly believed.
She is the author of God and the Victim: Her research interests include trauma theory and Christian theology; ethnography and Christian ethics; sexual ethics; feminist ethics; and children, justice, and Catholicism. College Hookup Culture and Christian Ethics The Lives and Longings of Emerging Adults Jennifer Beste Reviews and Awards “College Hookup Culture and Christian Ethics weaves together original ethnographic research, theological reflection on full human living and loving, and a justice-oriented analysis of sexual norms and campus culture in a way that is engaging, insightful, and thought-provoking even if, at times, it is also unsettling and uncomfortable For anyone interested in learning more about student experiences and working toward creating more just and supportive environments for college students, College Hookup Culture and Christian Ethics is an engaging and worthwhile read.
Without being ‘moralistic,’ Jennifer Beste intriguingly combines student empirical research with both secular and Christian anthropological, theological, and ethical proposals. In its fullness, this is a book that brilliantly probes both pain and pleasure, love and happiness, justice and care, hope and community-illuminated within the complex sphere of human sexuality. Stark Professor Emerita of Christian Ethics, Yale University Divinity School “Few works in Christian sexual ethics draw upon ethnographic methodologies to take into account the perspectives of the moral agents themselves.
Professor Beste’s study does just that. The amount and richness of the gathered qualitative material alone makes this book well worth the read. But Professor Beste goes well beyond field description to trenchant analysis of the allure and dangers of hook-up culture for young adults. This book will be a benchmark in both ethnographic theology and qualitative sociology on the subject.
Faculty and student research on Navigating Campus Hookup Culture
Holding the loose elements together is David Carradine, a natural star and a man whose whole life was a cult movie — one where too many of the best parts probably happened when no cameras were around. If you actually saw this in a theater at any point before , you earn a lifetime coolness certificate. The first twenty minutes — featuring freelance dominatrix babes racing their sports cars in the desert and killing anyone who looks at them funny — are like a drive-in movie from Mars. What happens after that?

Email Bio Follow August 2, Sam Wei, a year-old financial analyst in Chicago, has not had sex since her last relationship ended 18 months ago. She makes out with guys sometimes, and she likes to cuddle. Even older millennials are more sexually active than this younger group is. Recent research also shows that, overall, millennials — people born between the early s and — have fewer sexual partners than baby boomers and those in Generation X, the group immediately preceding them.
Granted, the vast majority of young adults are still having sex, but an increasing number of them appear to be standing on the sidelines. Delaying sex is not necessarily bad, experts say: Being intentional about when to have sex can lead to stronger relationships in the long run. The trend may also reflect that women feel more empowered to say no, said Stephanie Coontz, director of research at the Council on Contemporary Families. They cite other reasons for putting off sex, including pressure to succeed, social lives increasingly conducted on-screen, unrealistic expectations of physical perfection encouraged by dating apps and wariness over date rape.
To shut it all down for a date or even a one-night stand seems like a waste. More and more young people avoid it. And a study published in the same journal last year found that although millennials are more accepting of extramarital sex than earlier generations, they reported fewer sexual partners than any group since the s — an average of eight, compared with 11 for boomers and 10 for Generation X. The portion who reported sleeping with multiple partners also declined, from about 19 percent in to about 12 percent last year.
News Faculty and student research on Navigating Campus Hookup Culture Current research examples of the college hookup scene consistently show it to be heavily gendered and heteronormative. In spite of the extensive research on hookup culture, there is limited data on how lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer LGBTQ students navigate hookups on college campuses. Ellen Lamont and Dr. Based on this sample, LGBTQ students are sharply critical of dominant hookup culture and aim to challenge heteronormative practices by deconstructing normative patterns of behavior, emphasizing communication and consent and queering standards of pleasure.
By participating in this study as a research assistant, Kahn was able to learn much more about the research process than what can be obtained in the classroom.
The research on campus culture provides evidence for the importance of the power of organizational culture. Often, socialization into “Greek” and varsity athletic life creates an expectation of male privilege in heterosexual dating and casual sex, at least for men, but perhaps also for women.
History[ edit ] The rise of hookups, a form of casual sex , has been described by evolutionary biologist Justin Garcia and others as a “cultural revolution” that had its beginnings in the s. Lisa Wade, a sociologist, documents that 19th century white fraternity men often had what would be called hookup sex with prostitutes, poor women, and the women they had enslaved. As a result, Garcia and other scholars argue that young adults are able to reproduce physiologically but are not psychologically or socially ready to ‘settle down’ and begin a family.
Research on hookups is not seated within a singular disciplinary sphere; it sits at the crossroads of theoretical and empirical ideas drawn from a diverse range of fields, including psychology , anthropology , sociology , biology , medicine , and public health. It is hard to make sense of the hookup culture with understanding why it exists in society and why individuals participate in the culture. Boodram, “hooking up is nothing more than settling; it is the microwaveable burrito of sex.
It can range from acts that involve kissing, oral sex, or intercourse. A hook up is an act that involves sexual intimacy, claimed by many to be a sexually liberating act. On the other hand, hook up culture is thought to be oppressive and monolithic, with intimacy only occurring within a specific context. Currier, she explores how the phrase “hooking up” conveys different meanings depending on whether a man or woman uses it when describing their sexual encounters; furthermore, Currier notes that men use “hooking up” to emphasize their masculinity and heterosexuality whereas women use the phrase to preserve their femininity by being strategically ambiguous in order to downplay their sexual desires.
Young women tend to be honest about their sexual encounters and experiences, while young men tend to lie more often about theirs.
