#ad
Harper #ad - 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. By surfacing young men’s experience in all its complexity, hard lessons, Orenstein is able to unravel the hidden truths, and important realities of young male sexuality in today’s world.

In boys & sex,  peggy orenstein dives back into the lives of young people to once again give voice to the unspoken, revealing how young men understand and negotiate the new rules of physical and emotional intimacy. Drawing on comprehensive interviews with young men, psychologists, and experts in the field, academics, Boys & Sex dissects so-called locker room talk; how the word “hilarious” robs boys of empathy; pornography as the new sex education; boys’ understanding of hookup culture and consent; and their experience as both victims and perpetrators of sexual violence.

Boys & Sex: Young Men on Hookups, Love, Porn, Consent, and Navigating the New Masculinity #ad - Boys are subject to the same cultural forces as girls—steeped in the same distorted media images and binary stereotypes of female sexiness and toxic masculinity—which equally affect how they navigate sexual and emotional relationships. The author of the groundbreaking new york times bestsellers girls & Sex and Cinderella Ate My Daughter now turns her focus to the sexual lives of young men, once again offering “both an examination of sexual culture and a guide on how to improve it” Washington Post.

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.

In her most revealing and powerful book yet, the beloved activist, Warrior explores the joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet the expectations of the world, speaker, and bestselling author of Love Warrior and Carry On, and start trusting the voice deep within us.

Untamed will liberate women—emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It is phenomenal. Elizabeth gilbert, author of City of Girls and Eat Pray Love This is how you find yourself. There is a voice of longing inside each woman. It is the story of navigating divorce, forming a new blended family,  and discovering that the brokenness or wholeness of a family depends not on its structure but on each member’s ability to bring her full self to the table.

It is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows them how to fully live.

Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender,  Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanizing wake-up call. As glennon insists: The braver we are, the luckier we get. This was the voice of the girl she had been before the world told her who to be.
