The Culture of Netflix & Chill

Every generation has its own code words for things that are taboo, but when watching TV and relaxing could mean having casual sex, it’s fair to say we’ve reached a tipping point in our culture. In this video, Fr. Mike examines the “Netflix and chill” lifestyle, borrowing some ideas from Boston College professor Kerry Cronin, who appears in a new documentary called The Dating Project, which addresses the problems inherent in a hookup culture.

The Dating Project will be in theaters April 17. Learn more at thedatingprojectmovie.com.

    I’m at the end of what would be deemed middle age and I guess, thankfully, still naive. Never knew chill meant that. Fr. Mike thanks again for an inspired message.
