            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 Orenste...in's Girls & Sex broke ground, shattered taboos, and galvanized conversations about young women's right to pleasure and agency in sexual encounters. It also had an unintended effect on its author: Orenstein realized that talking about girls is only half the conversation. To understand girls and sex, we also need to talk about boys and sex. Today's young men are subject to the same cultural forces as their female peers. They are steeped in the distorted media images and binary stereotypes of female sexiness and toxic masculinity which shape how they, too, navigate sexual and emotional relationships. In Boys & Sex, Orenstein uses the same fascinating mix of anecdote and research to reveal how young men understand and negotiate the new rules of physical and emotional intimacy. Drawing on comprehensive interviews with young men, psychologists, academics, and experts in the field, Orenstein takes an unprecedented look at the myriad factors that are shaping boys' ideas of sex, girls, and masculinity including: locker room talk how the word hilarious robs boys of empathy pornography as the new sex education hookup culture and consent Bro culture and #metoo excessive drinking and frat parties boys' experience as victims and perpetrators of sexual violence By exploring the complexity of young men's attitudes, beliefs, and experiences, Orenstein unravels the hidden truths, hard lessons, and important realities of boys' sex lives today. 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.

            Get Out of My Life: The bestselling guide to the twenty-first-century teenager

            Get Out of My Life: The bestselling guide to the twenty-first-century teenager (Paperback, Main)

            Teenagers are tough and anyone who has their own needs help. Witty, enjoyable and genuinely insightful, Get Out of My Life is now updated with how to deal with everything from social media to online threats and porn, as well as looking at all the difficult issues of bringing up t...eenagers, school, sex, drugs and more. But it's the title of the second chapter, 'What They Do and Why' that best captures the book's spirit and technique, explaining how to translate teenage behaviour into its true, often less complicated meaning. One key mistake, for instance, is getting in no-win conflicts instead of having the wisdom to shut up when shutting up would be the most effective, albeit least satisfying, thing to do. Another is taking offence when the teenager views you, the adult, as idiotic. And there's advice on what to do when this happens. The message is clear: parenting adolescents is inherently difficult. Don't judge yourself too harshly!

            Fathers Who Dare Win: 30 Ways to Be an Awesome Dad
             

            Fathers Who Dare Win: 30 Ways to Be an Awesome Dad (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Revised edition)

            By Grant, Ian

            Fathers Who Dare Win was self-published eleven years ago, sold strongly and now Ian Grant has updated and revised it for today's generation of fathers. Most of the original content remains highly relevant but there are new apsects for today's fathers to deal with the internet, Fa...cebook and Twitter; strategies for the estranged dad; the importance of a father in his daughter's life, and in his son's life; smart strategies for how to love the mother of your children; and much more. In Ian's characteristic straight-talking way he offers lots of advice, tips and strategies for being the best father you can. Including clear strategies on everything from being a hero to your kids to communication to discipline, this is the one book you'll ever need. It's encouraging and affirming and to the point, with comments like: 'Men are such a necessary part of the parenting team because they believe in the three Rs: Rules, Routines, Ridiculousness.' Ian speaks from experience as the father of three and grandfather of nine, but he also mines the research to deliver well founded and practical advice.
