Adolescence is a time of incredibly physical, social and emotional growth, and peer relationships – especially romantic ones – are a major social focus for many youth.
The ubiquitousness of Internet use today has meant a slow increase in comparatively more positive representations of successful online romances in the news, resulting in more positive-spin advertising and a more even-handed presence of such liaisons in narrative television and film.
Both the positive and the negative media representations are categorised and analysed in this book to explore what they reveal about the intersection of gender, sexuality, technology and the changing mores regarding intimacy."Lauren Rosewarne is among our most daring and adroit explorers of the sexual scene, always poking at the edges, the margins, to reveal how mass media have constructed our experiences.
The focus of this book is on the media representations of the use of the Internet in seeking intimate connections—be it a committed relationship, a hook-up, or a community in which to dabble in fringe sexual practices.
Popular culture (film, narrative television, the news media, and advertising) present two very distinct pictures of the use of the Internet as related to intimacy.
Now there are all sorts of reasons that people opt to become a member of an online dating services (OLD).
Some younger folks intensely dislike the bar and nightclub scene and use OLD as an alternative means to find their "soul mate".
Once a profile has been created, members can view the profiles of other members of the service, using the visible profile information to decide whether or not to initiate contact."Bridges stresses the importance of self-knowledge and emotional resilience in the search for a soul mate.The Illusion of Intimacy can be viewed as an important antidote for the idealistic expectations that millions of people bring to the online search for love with a perfect stranger." - Psyc CRITIQUES John C.Enter your mobile number or email address below and we'll send you a link to download the free Kindle App.Then you can start reading Kindle books on your smartphone, tablet, or computer - no Kindle device required.
