Boys sex with men

For the last 25 years, journalist Peggy Orenstein has been documenting and dissecting the inner lives of teenage girls in America, exploring why some young women struggle with confidence or harbor secret Disney princess obsessions. Her method is simple: she talks to teens—hundreds of them—then compiles their stories to share their internal struggles with the world, providing the rest of us with a nuanced look inside their homes, schools, friendships and more. Orenstein: When the Kavanaugh stuff was happening, I checked in with boys and said, "How are you guys talking about this? If they talked about it, it was just with girls. Why is that, do you think? People were like, oh my God, we've layered all these new expectations over the old ones without actually getting rid of the old expectations. It was causing this huge tension and pressure on young girls, which I think is sort of where we are with boys. I speak to parents of girls and they would say to me privately, "But you know, I'm afraid to raise a girl to be more assertive, to stand out, to speak her mind, because what if she gets called a bitch? What if nobody wants to be her friend, what if guys don't like her? What happens if it bounces back and hurts my child?

She asked them about their perspectives on hooking up, using porn and seeking consent, and heard stories of men both experiencing and perpetrating assault. Orenstein spoke to TIME about her discoveries and how parents, schools and young people themselves can foster a safer and more fulfilling culture around sex.

Terry Gross. They spanned a broad range of races, religions, classes and sexual orientations. Author Peggy Orenstein knows that talking to your son about sex isn't easy: "I know for a lot of parents, you would rather poke yourself in the eye with a fork than speak directly to your son about sex — and probably he would rather poke himself in the eye with a fork as well," she says. But we don't have "the luxury" to continue avoiding this conversation, she says. Orenstein spent 25 years chronicling the lives of adolescent and teen girls and never really expected to focus on boys. Orenstein notes that society doesn't often give boys "permission or space" to discuss their interior lives. Maybe that's why the young men she spoke to were so eager to open up: "When they had the chance [to talk], when somebody really gave it to them and wasn't going to be judgmental about what they had to say, they went for it. Orenstein says the boys she spoke with felt constrained by traditional notions of masculinity. One interviewee confided that he preferred to partner with girls for school projects because, "It was OK to say you didn't know what you were doing with a girl, and you couldn't do that with a guy.

Maybe you remember the day your own arrived. Our boys have a lot to say, and they need as much help as possible in finding alternatives to Dick School. Salon spoke recently to Orenstein via phone about her new book, and the secrets boys told her that "pierced my heart. I'm so glad that you decided to do this pivot to talking about boys, because they're integral to the conversation and they really are so not a part of it. What I realized very early on was that we have been talking to girls for. It's really time to bring boys into the conversation, because nobody is talking to them. Nobody is listening to them, to hear how they're thinking about all these issues that are so crucial, not only at this historical moment, but in our lives for our wellbeing around sex and relationships and gender dynamics. What could be more important to our lifelong happiness than our relationships and our ability to navigate them and understand them? What was it that persuaded you that this was the book that you were going to write next? You are an expert on girls.

For the last 25 years, journalist Peggy Orenstein has been documenting and dissecting the inner lives of teenage girls in America, exploring why some young women struggle with confidence or harbor secret Disney princess obsessions. Her method is simple: she talks to teens—hundreds of them—then compiles their stories to share their internal struggles with the world, providing the rest of us with a nuanced look inside their homes, schools, friendships and more.

Orenstein: When the Kavanaugh stuff was happening, I checked in with boys and said, "How are you guys talking about this? If they talked about it, it was just with girls. Why is that, do you think? People were like, oh my God, we've layered all these new expectations over the old ones without actually getting rid of the old expectations. It was causing this huge tension and pressure on young girls, which I think is sort of where we are with boys.

I speak to parents of girls and they would say to me privately, "But you know, I'm afraid to raise a girl to be more assertive, to stand out, to speak her mind, because what if she gets called a bitch? What if nobody wants to be her friend, what if guys don't like her?

What happens if it bounces back and hurts my child? Since then, a lot of people have created an environment where we could talk to girls about these issues. It's not perfect. There's still a lot to be addressed, but girls have a much more expansive idea now about what it means to be female and that's to their benefit.

It's time to bring boys into that conversation. I do think that a taboo against emotional vulnerability is pretty central. When you cut boys off from their vulnerability and when they narrow their emotional range to happiness and anger, it's very hard for them to have meaningful, mutually gratifying, personally fulfilling relationships.

It can also undergird a predilection for conquest and locker room talk and disconnection on one hand, and on the other, coercion and assault. The boys in your book were really honest with you. How did you convince them to open up? There's no trick. Early on in that book, I made big mistakes in my interviews and would betray surprise or shock or judgment. That would shut them down, and they would ghost me. What do I need to do in order to get kids to talk to me? It was just truly about being open and curious and giving them the space to explore themselves without criticism or judgment.

A lot of the boys would talk about how it had been cathartic, like therapy. They had never told anybody any of these things before because nobody talks to them, and they're not allowed to talk to one another. It's a word that acts as a shield and offers forced distance when boys face something that's inappropriate or confusing or unnerving or disgusting.

Or when they know that something is violating their ethics. Especially when it combines sex and aggression, when somebody says something really raunchy and offensive. It's another way that boys used to keep them from being marginalized or targeted or pushing back against the man box. But it also is a way that boys' heads and their hearts are severed because what they say and what they know are two different things.

I started listening to the ways that boys who were in the headlines for really high profile rape cases like Steubenville tended to say, "Well, we just thought what we were doing was hilarious. We just thought we were being funny. Hilarious can also be a challenge asserted by a misbehaving boy to see if other boys will say anything.

On the surface it seems like an extension of gross out jokes from when you're A dead baby joke can be hilarious unless I first tell you about how much those parents wanted that baby and the horrible way it died and how really tragic the funeral was. When we see that the rates of athletes being brought up on sexual assault charges are three times higher than other boys, you can see that it's not just talk.

For most boys it will be, but not for all of them. You don't want to be marginalized. You don't want to be stigmatized. You want to be a part of the crowd. On the other hand, you're colluding. That's why I feel really strongly that adult men who work with boys need to get in there and start establishing a different kind of culture. Your book offers a roadmap for parents who want to raise better men.

But what things can adults be doing to unlearn their own unhealthy lessons about sex and masculinity? The first thing to know is that you don't have to be perfect. You don't have to know all the answers, you don't have to know all the questions. You don't have to be in the perfect relationship or be adept at talking to your partner about these issues.

You just have to start somewhere. It involves taking a leap. Talking about what makes a mutually gratifying, reciprocal relationship, talking about the media, talking about porn is really important for today's boys because if you went through puberty after , you went through puberty in a different porn world.

Boys need to hear from somebody that what they're looking at is not reality. We don't have the luxury of silence because if we don't talk to our kids, the media is going to teach them. That's the world that we live in. You wouldn't sit your son down and say, "Okay, this is what table manners are.

You put the napkin on your lap, you pick up your fork and this is how you hold it. Then you say, please pass. You say thank you. Now go forth and have table manners. Anybody who's raised a child knows that you have to tell them to say thank you billion times before they remember to do it themselves.

I would argue that our interpersonal relationships are at least as important as table manners and yet we basically only say to boys, don't get somebody pregnant, don't get a disease, and respect women. And then, as you say in the book, you end up with women doing the processing for men's emotional lives because it would be emasculating for guys to do it themselves.

When I talked to girls, they would say that part of the reason that they wanted to hook up was that they didn't want to take care of a boyfriend. I've got enough to do. When you do that with your son, you're training him to depend on women to do that for him, rather than helping him learn how to do that himself or with another male peer, even another female peer.

Learn how to deal with your own emotions, instead of making somebody else translate them for you, explain them to you, carry them for you. You say in the book that heavy porn use can encourage that disconnect for teens. I really want to throw up some caveats whenever I talk about porn. Curiosity about sex is natural. Masturbation, go for it.

There's all kinds of different porn. There's queer porn and there's feminist porn and there's ethical porn, but all of that is behind a paywall. Post, Pornhub went online and dropped the paywall. You could suddenly see anything that you can imagine and a lot of stuff that you don't want to imagine. It portrays sex as something men do to women and female pleasure as a performance for male satisfaction. A lot of guys will tell me, "I know the difference between reality and fantasy. Boys who watch porn regularly tend to believe those images reflect reality, and they are more likely to act them out.

There's research that says they're less satisfied with their sex lives than other boys. Sometimes, something that is simultaneously taboo and sexual can actually create this kind of tension in you.

You're thinking about polar bears. Not demonizing or shaming, but helping them differentiate between what's just super arousing and what's actually wanted, desired, and pleasurable. We're not talking about adults. If you are an adult, do what you want. We're talking about year-olds, year-olds. It's really confusing for them to be super aroused by weird shit. They haven't even kissed anybody yet. That's why it's absolutely essential for fathers or older brothers to talk to young guys about what porn is and what porn isn't.

It's doing them a disservice and setting them up not only for lousy relationships and bad sex, but for potentially engaging in misconduct that they think is normal. By Sophia Benoit. Hey man
