Do Straight Guys Imagine Having Sex with Every Woman They See?

Masculinity = “The Mask You Live In”

“Don’t cry.” “Be a man.” “Man up.” “Don’t be a pussy.” “Grow some fucking balls.” These are the lessons we’re teaching our boys, and it’s hurting everyone.

Do Men Even Notice What Women Wear?

Rethinking Male and Female Sexual Anatomy

So often we focus on the differences between men and women. But we’d do well to consider how alike we are, too — especially when it comes to sexual anatomy. Rather than thinking of a woman’s parts as inferior, miniature versions of his, embrace the fact that they are equitable, albeit more internal, sexual structures […]
