Overview

Getting teenage boys to open up about their emotions can be a challenge. When it comes to getting them to open up about sex, it seems almost impossible. Nonetheless, journalist Peggy Orenstein was able to get hundreds of boys to open up about their sex lives.

Peggy Orenstein is a journalist and contributor to the New York Times Magazine. In 2012, she was named as one of the '40 Women Who Changed The Media Business in the Past 40 Years' by The Columbia Journalism Review. In her book, Boys and Sex: Young Men on Hookups, Love, Porn, Consent, and Navigating the New Masculinity, Orenstein shares the knowledge she gathered during these discussions. From hookup culture and consent to gender expression and toxic masculinity, these boys opened up and set themselves free from their blockages to show the world their vulnerabilities.

Orenstein's unfiltered view will help you understand the challenges of being a teenage boy in today's world. By understanding their struggles, we can find ways to better help them thrive sexually - and emotionally.

"At one time or another, every young man will get a letter of admission to dick school. The question is will he drop out, graduate, or go for an advanced degree?"
