Her books also include Becoming a Goddess of Inner Poise: Spirituality for the Bridget Jones in All of Us and Save the Date: A Spirituality of Dating, Love, Dinner & the Divine. Donna describes herself as an ardent feminist, a Catholic despite it all, an intense intellectual, and a fashion devotee all rolled into one.
She loves to ask Big Questions (Why are we here anyway?
) and delights in discovering the many possible forums in which to dabble with the stuff of faith, religion, spirituality, and gender. She has been a professor at Boston University and at Hofstra in New York.
Donna Freitas, assistant professor of religion at Boston University, is the author of a book to be published in early April called “The End of Sex: How Hookup Culture is Leaving a Generation Unhappy, Sexually Unfulfilled, and Confused About Intimacy.” “Young people today don’t know how to get out of hookup culture,” Freitas said in Williams’ article.
According to the article, after various interviews with students, Freitas concluded that men and women alike “are deeply unhappy with hookup culture” because it does not allow for dating, romance and intimacy.
