Men, Masculinity and Contemporary Dating

At a time when traditional dating practices are being replaced with new ways to meet potential partners, this book provides fresh insights into how are men responding to new ways of dating. Drawing upon original research, this book examines a wide range of contemporary dating practices that includes speed dating, holiday romances, use of dating apps, online sex seeking and dogging. It reveals the ways in which men draw upon traditional models of masculinity to negotiate these changes; but also, the extent to which men are responding by elaborating new masculinities. Through an investigation of the dynamics of heterosexuality and masculinity, this book highlights the importance attached to authenticity, and the increasing marketization and commodification of dating. It argues that in a post-truth world, men must also come to terms with a post-trust dating landscape. Combining rich empirical material with keen theoretical analysis, this innovative work will have interdisciplinary appeal for students and scholars of sociology, media studies, cultural studies, and gender studies.

This three-in-one short story collection contains the following: ´´Dating My Stepbrother´´: Tonight is the night! I get to go on my first ever date. Sure, Daniel, whom I´ve been in school with since forever, had to wait until after graduation to finally grow a pair and ask me out, but better late than never! We´re going to the movies and dinner after. I wonder, will my date also lead to my first kiss? By the time I´m all dressed up and ready, I decide to wait on the sofa next to Jack, who is watching the game. The clock soon strikes seven, but Daniel is nowhere to be found.... Soon my doubts begin to take over, and I wonder if it was all a cruel joke. Is he going to show up at all? After starting on such a high note, my hopes for the evening are in tatters. Nothing could possibly console me, except perhaps a confession about how he really feels about me by the boy I grew up with. ´´Stepbrother Surveillance´´: Liam, the boy I grew up with, is getting ready, and I´m well prepared and in position with my iPhone outside the bathroom window. He is completely unaware, having a shave topless in front of the mirror before taking all his clothes off his godlike body, ready for the shower, and I´m getting more and more excited. This will make a wonderful addition to my collection. And soon, in the privacy of my bedroom, I´ll let it fuel many a hard and unprotected fantasy.... I can only hope this arrangement keeps working out for me, and I don´t get caught. After all, it´s the only thing close to a sex life I have.... ´´Seducing My Stepbrother´´: When I invited Holly to join me on a visit home from college, I should have expected her to take a liking to the boy I grew up with, Bradley. What I didn´t expect was that she guessed I liked him, too. In fact, he´s the first and only guy I ever liked. It was wrong, I knew that, but she encouraged me to at least find out if the feeling was mutual. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cheyanne Humble.
