Being the best in her field doesn´t seem to help famously successful sex therapist, Dr. Regina Logan, who manages to fix everyone’s love life but her own. Men won´t date her. Her brutal honesty about physical matters intimidates most males. It also doesn’t help her love life that the press publishes every dating move she makes. Though she knows her negative publicity is the biggest problem, Regina thinks its still ironic for a 47 year old woman to be so knowledgeable about pleasing a man when there’s no lover in her life to benefit. Since most men have a tendency to run away before making it as far as her bed, it is definitely no surprise to Regina when ´´nice guy´´ Ben Kaiser rejects her after discovering her identity. But it still hurts. Ben’s kisses promise fulfillment of every fantasy she’s ever had, but no matter how great he is, Regina would be the first to admit there’s no room in her crazy public life for someone as nice as Ben. 1.

´´Does anyone date anymore?´´ Today the authorities tell us that courtship is in crisis. But when Moira Weigel dives into the history of sex and romance in modern America, she discovers that authorities have always said this. Ever since young men and women started to go out together, older generations have scolded them: That´s not the way to find true love. The first women who made dates with strangers were often arrested for prostitution; long before ´´hookup culture´´, there were ´´petting parties´´; before parents worried about cell phone apps, they fretted about joyrides and ´´parking´´. Dating is always dying. But this does not mean that love is dead. It simply changes with the economy. Dating is, and always has been, tied to work. Lines like ´´I´ll pick you up at six´´ made sense at a time when people had jobs that started and ended at fixed hours. But in an age of contract work and flextime, many of us have become sexual freelancers, more likely to text a partner, ´´u still up?´´ Weaving together over 100 years of history with scenes from the contemporary landscape, Labor of Love offers a fresh feminist perspective on how we came to date the ways we do. This isn´t a guide to ´´getting the guy´´. There are no ridiculous ´´rules´´ to follow. Instead Weigel helps us understand how looking for love shapes who we are and hopefully leads us closer to the happy ending that dating promises. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kyra Miller.
