Only a New Vision of Masculinity Can Save Sex in America

So says Public Discourse essayist Matthew Schmitz, commenting on the new book, Premarital Sex in America:

After looking at these data [on gender-imbalanced areas of well-educated young adults], Regnerus and Uecker offer a powerful conclusion: the failure of American men to compete academically with their female peers has created a gender imbalance that leaves women at a disadvantage in the sexual marketplace. It is a particularly bitter irony that the societal neglect of the young American male has now become a significant threat to the happiness and well-being of the young American female. If we are to “take back the night,” we may have to first recapture a compelling vision of masculinity that makes education and achievement attractive to a lost generation of young men.
