“From the get-go, boys are raised in a more emotionally impoverished landscape than girls,” says Peggy Orenstein, author of Girls and Sex and her latest, Boys and Sex. Orenstein’s research on how girls, boys, women, and men view sex, love, porn, the hook-up culture, and modern masculinity is: fascinating. In this episode, she shares from the many conversations she’s had about sex and vulnerability that have changed her own perspective, and certainly ours. How and from where do we learn about intimacy? What might we need to re-learn? Orenstein’s work is impactful whether or not you have children, but if you do, hear out what she has to say about talking with your kids about sex.
