Filmmaker Denice Ann Evans draws heavily on the voices of students in this powerful and timely exploration of hookup culture on college campuses.

Supplementing student testimony with analysis from experts and health professionals, the film's main concern is whether hookup culture is offering young people a new and potentially liberating set of sexual rules, or whether it's simply reinforcing traditional gender roles and blurring the line between consent and coercion. The result is an invaluable teaching tool, one that asks tough questions about the relationship between hookup culture, gender politics, and the alarming levels of sexual assault and binge drinking that continue to plague college campuses.

The DVD includes both a 64-minute feature of the film and a 35-minute abridged version, made specifically for use in the classroom.

"The campus hookup culture usually elicits bemusement or shock, but rarely is it well understood. This thoughtful film gets inside the hookup culture, reveals its gender politics, and enables us to finally start asking the right questions about the sort of sexual ethics we need to be developing."
- Michael Kimmel | Professor of Sociology, SUNY Stony Brook

"A powerful force that opens a window onto a reality that too few of us want to face."
- David Lisak, Ph.D. | Associate Professor, University of Massachusetts, Boston

"The interplay between student interviews and notable personalities in the sexual assault and gender-related fields is excellent. Provides in-depth coverage on subjects that touch nearly every college health education issue."
- Elaine D. Theodore, Ed.M. | Sexual Violence Resource Coordinator | Tufts University

"Spitting Game: The College Hook-Up Culture is a revealing and provocative look at the pleasures and pitfalls of hook-up culture. This timely documentary explores binge drinking, sex-saturated youth culture, pleasure, consent, and sexual assault through the voices of young people immersed in hook-up culture."
- Dr. Caroline Heldman | Associate Professor of Politics | Occidental College

"This provocative new film will generate much classroom discussion. Spitting Game suggests that alcohol abuse and sexual assault are endemic to college hookup scenes. Students -- particularly those who enjoy the sort of social life described -- may find the film challenging."
- Dr. Elizabeth Armstrong | Professor of Sociology | Michigan State University

"Spitting Game addresses the challenging issues of binge drinking and hookup culture head-on, highlighting how a generation's desire for sexual equality became synonymous with dangerous sexual decision-making."
- Michelle Issadore, M.Ed. | Executive Director for School and College Organization for Prevention Educators
