Heartland [eBook]

Pinkerton, Jennifer2022
Based on interviews across Australia, Heartland guides readers through the intimate world of love, dating and sex among millennials. From hard and fast hook-ups to loneliness, deep love and even climate change stress, I want to understand the whole gamut of modern love. I want to know the heartland. Stump, 30, has a knack for getting herself into unusual dating situations. Kami, 19, craves deeper connections than apps offer. Alex, 25, streams porn for four hours each day. Charlotte, 22, has two categories: hook-up or husband. Ku, 25, relies on alcohol to meet people and push boundaries during sex. Finding love and quenching lust are desires humankind has sought-after for millennia. Today, the internet plays a key role in how we find companionship and connection, but for writer Jennifer Pinkerton-who's traversing her own ups and downs in love and commitment-this new era of dating apps, omnipresent porn, and increasingly fluid identities begs the question: what is the future of modern love? This one-of-a-kind book blends reportage, memoir, extensive research, and lyrical prose to take us on a journey into the heart-scapes of young Australians. Informed by interviews with more than 100 people under 40 years of age-from transgender Aboriginal sistagirls in the Tiwi Islands to conservative Catholics living in Sydney-this book explores the hopes, fears and realities of romantic relationships at a time marked by great expectations and far fewer rules.
