    That's the problem Rob said None of my friends talk about feelings If you were hung up over a girl they'd be like 'Stop being a bitch' Very very interesting book I liked Boys Sex uite a lot than Girls Sex though why is a bit harder to decipher It might be that I knew what to expect from this one— lots of anecdotes from a smallish sample; not really a social study with a definitive conclusion It might be that the sample size was larger a

    This is not my favorite style of covering topics lots of interviews no analysis or research But I knew what it was because I read the girls one I learned a lot—mostly because I wasn’t close with any teenage boys no brothers or best friends who talked about this stuff so these revelations were nuts And If I had boys thank God

    For my entire life I've heard boys are easier to raise This book shows through interviews with college age men boys are not easier to parent than girls most people just aren't parenting them Many of your sons are engaging in a culture of homophobia misogyny and assault all of which they're almost never held accountable for by their peers pa

    Really interesting book on men and masculinity So much of what she said resonated and I learned new things and language surrounding how men are oftentimes victims of sexual assault but don't realize it because of narrative surrounding assaul

    This book is just as ridiculous if not worse than her first book on girls and sex About 20% of this book is true I find it hilarious that all the top rated reviews are predominantly coming from females If that doesn't raise some suspicions then you're ignoring the signsThe first two chapters and sparingly through the rest of the book she uses her political bias to deem that everything is the cause of Trump — despite h

Peggy Orenstein’s Girls Sex broke ground shattered taboos and launched conversations about young women’s right to pleasure and agency in sexual encounters It also had an unexpected effect on its author Orenstein realized that talking about girls is only half the conversation Boys are subject to the same cultural Checked this out to see how bad society screwed me up as a kid and to see if it s gotten any better for the next round Orenstein makes many surprising discoveries during her long interview process with today s high school and college aged guys Some shocking than othersThough it takes her a while to get there the most eye opening bits discuss the problematic cultural depiction of menWe all know women are objectified on magazine covers and in movies but how does it feel to be a boy and look at the cover of Men s Health To watch James Bond She paints a surprisingly clear picture of generations of lonely boys who prefer to stay at home rather than face the world without the prereuisite 24 pack abs and million dollar car What boys see as success is as unrealistic and unhealthy as what is depicted to girls but as Orenstein points out parents rarely think it necessary to talk aboutWhat about porn Surely that is nothing but a den of female objectification right Well yes and no This is another situation where Orenstein exposes an under discussed problem We think boys watch porn and see women as mere treats for their enjoyment but often what they re really seeing is a chiseled man with a 12 inch penis who seems to please women with superpower efficiency Again potentially devastating when their reality doesn t um measure upOf course we also get plenty of chapters on toxic masculinity and issues of consent The book does an excellent job of diving into the complexities of consent what misunderstandings young people have about it and offers some hope for the future of sex educationThe problem is that sex education in this country is still primarily about abstinance This blows my mind and makes me sick It made me sick back in 05 when my sex ed class was nothing than slideshow images of STIs and a purity pledge Obviously there was no discussion about LGBT sex I don t even think they said the word condom When parents and schools are still too shy to teach sex education real sex education what else are kids to do but learn the hard way And so that s what happens Sometimes practice makes perfect and sometimes practice scars you for life According to many stories in this book practice is often happening under the influence of alcohol and drugsParents looking for a resource to help them understand what is happening in the lives of their sons will be smart to read this book even if not all of it applies I do think it focuses primarily on extremes Certainly not all boys are hopeless and depressed or high and hooking up hourly but some are And the reasons why are pretty cut and dry Sexuality is complicated but it s not that complicated It s certainly teachable But for some reason we feel a moral objection to do so Still
