On November 3rd at 9:00am, the Harvard Anscombe Society met with UT Austin sociologist Mark Regnerus to discuss his recent book “Cheap Sex.” The book is a survey of his recent research on the marketization of sex. He argues the ascent of easy online hookup apps and adult content has dramatically lowered the cost for sex with enormous consequences for marriage and other societal institutions. Regnerus is an accomplished researcher who is unafraid of broaching difficult topics in a robust manner set apart from ideological biases. Anscombe looks forward to keeping in touch and following his future work. See the article from the Atlantic linked here for a brief analysis on both Mark’s book and a competing work.
