Wikipedia article

'The Plastic Age' (1924) is a novel by Percy Marks, which tells the story of co-eds at a fictional college called Sanford. With contents that covered or implied hazing, partying, and "petting", the book sold well enough to be the second best-selling novel of 1924. The book was, however, banned in Boston. The following year, it was adapted into a film of the same name, starring Clara Bow.

In 1928, under the title 'Red Lips', the novel was again adapted into a film. This remake starred Charles "Buddy" Rogers, who had just co-starred with Clara Bow in a different film, 'Wings', the previous year.

'The Plastic Age' was last reprinted in 1980, in a series subtitled, 'Lost American Fiction'.
