About the original book:

For some reason, society has always had a problem talking to or teaching boys about sex. Parents and teachers assume that boys will find a way to figure out the details for themselves. And they often do, with drastic results. In Peggy Orenstein’s Boys and Sex, she spends two years interviewing boys from all over the country about their sexual experiences and perspectives. Surprisingly enough, these boys open up about their sexual insecurities, emotions, and performance. They also talk about their sexual misconduct, porn, racism, and even male rape. Without doubt, Boys and Sex shows us the viewpoints of the other side of the gender divide.
