Peggy Orenstein broke ground with her bestselling Girls & Sex, exploring young women`s right to pleasure and agency in sexual encounters. Now she turns her focus to boys with an examination of how young men are navigating sexual culture in these changing times - and what we need to do to help them. Drawing on comprehensive interviews with young men, psychologists and experts in the field, Boys & Sex dissects `locker room talk`; pornography as the new sex education; the role of empathy; boys` understanding of hookup culture and consent; and their experience as both perpetrators and victims of sexual assault. By presenting young men`s experience in all its complexity, Orenstein unravels the hidden truths, hard lessons and important realities of young male sexuality in today`s world. The result is a provocative and paradigm-shifting work that offers a much-needed vision of how boys can truly move forward as better men.
