Descrição do produto

In Flirting with Danger, Lynn M. Phillips explores how young women make sense of, resist, and negotiate conflicting cultural messages about sexual agency, responsibility, aggression, and desire. How do women develop their ideas about sex, love, and domination? Why do they express feminist views condemning male violence in the abstract, but often adamantly refuse to name their own violent and exploitive encounters as abuse, rape, or victimization?

Based on in-depth individual and collective interviews with a racially and culturally diverse sample of college-aged women, Flirting with Danger sheds valuable light on the cultural lenses through which young women interpret their sexual encounters and their experiences of male aggression in heterosexual relationships.

Phillips makes an important contribution to the fields of female and adolescent sexuality, feminist theory, and feminist method. The volume will also be of particular use to advocates seeking to design prevention and intervention programs which speak to the complex needs of women grappling with questions of sexuality and violence.

This book has so many complex concepts but the language is so simple and self-explanatory that one can follow.
It was definitely an eye opened on issues of power asymmetries and the struggles that women go through to make sense of the conflicting messages they get about femininity.
I definitely recommend this book to everyone.

I read this book for a college course years ago and the info really stuck so I wanted to re-read it again. Superb qualitative research.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Insightful, moving, timely, provocative 10 de março de 2003
Por Hugo Schwyzer - Publicada na Amazon.com

Lynn Phillips has written a marvelously important book! One of the most salient reasons why my young women students reject the label "feminist" is because they associate it with victimhood. The desire to not be a victim, but to be a powerful agent, is enormously strong among all of us -- but it is particularly pointed among today's college-age women.
Phillips bases her book on a series of interviews with an ethnically, culturally, economically and sexually diverse group of female college students. Her book provides extended quotations from these young women on the subject of sexuality, desire, and victimhood. The overriding point is that these young women are forced to embrace some profound contradictions: to be both "good girls" (demure, pleasing to men and/or families) and "together women" (in control of their own sexualities, autonomous, and definitely NOT victims).
These young women often report longing for emotional intimacy, physical pleasure, and connection -- but the sexual encounters they recount rarely provided that for which they were searching. Despite living in an age of liberation, a generation removed from the 1960s, these young women, according to Phillips, are profoundly ambivalent about their sexual freedom. The ambivalence is rooted in a couple of areas: first, a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" mentality; they are convinced that no matter what sexual choices they make, they will disappoint someone. Secondly, Phillips notes that these young women often report with pride their "mastery of the male body". But most are aware that there is a colossal distinction between developing a skill set that enables them to "soothe" men sexually, and actually enjoying sex with these young men for its own sake.
A sure-fire discussion starter, this book is excellent for use in gender studies or sexuality courses.

4.0 de 5 estrelas Re: Damaging 5 de dezembro de 2006
Por Colin Grover - Publicada na Amazon.com

I tend neither to write Amazon reviews nor respond to them, but Siddique's afore posted review is itself 'damaging.' The purpose of the book is not self-help, or to give readers a warm fuzzy feeling- it is but a glimpse into these women's realities.

The author does not project *any* blame onto the interviewees. She states explicitly in the second chapter (by means of her discourses) that it is society that puts the onus of victimization on the women. The women are, Phillips argues, trapped in an inescapable cultural system and are socialized to take the blame onto themselves, though in truth are merely products of an unequal environment.

If you want a light at the end of a tunnel, there are many books written with the intention of that final "feel-good" release of dramatic tension. No, this book doesn't have a clean, fix-all solution for the women in this book. What it does have is candid insight into what is a horrifying, silenced reality for many, many, many women in modern society.
