            A Queer Existence is a major documentary project that uses photographic portraiture and oral history to record the life experiences of a group of 27 gay men born since the passing of the Homosexual Law Reform Act 1986. In New Zealand, discrimination in work was outlawed in 1993,... same-sex relationships were granted legal recognition in 2005, and marriage equality followed in 2013. As a result these men have life experiences very different to earlier generations of gay New Zealand men. Even so, gay men growing up today may continue to feel stigmatised, and for many coming out is still a major hurdle. Candid, powerful and affecting, the first-person narratives of A Queer Existence form a valuable and unique insight into how gay men continue to have to step out of the mainstream and face their own challenges as they forge their queer identities.

            'Wasn't it time to pull apart what makes us men; to find some answers for myself, and perhaps for others too? Not self-help: more like self-resuscitation, facilitated by a spot of self-annihilation.' In this searingly honest yet frequently hilarious book, we join Martin Robinson ...- magazine journalist and founder of men's media site The Book of Man - on a journey into the chaos of modern masculinity. Along the way, Martin visits mental health groups and prisons, talks to sex activists, evolutionary psychologists and musicians, works out with Special Forces soldiers, watches cage fights, has a drag make-over and subjects himself to an 'intimacy jam' - all in his quest to unpeel the onion-like layers that make up the modern man. And yes, tears are shed. Not cool, solitary tears either. Reflecting on his reporting and discussions with experts, Martin also examines some of the most pressing concerns facing men today, including violence, suicide and the spectre of toxic masculinity. He explores how men are defining themselves beyond traditional male stereotypes; whether they can learn to expand the limits of what society expects; how to combat the male mental health epidemic; and why men need a new blueprint to live by in a society transformed by the Digital Age, new attitudes in gender relations and a global pandemic. Crammed full of interviews with the likes of Jason Fox from SAS: Who Dares Wins, Jason Williamson of Sleaford Mods, musician Professor Green, authors Poorna Bell and Thomas Page McBee, poet Derek Owusu and Olympic gold-winning boxer Luke Campbell MBE, You Are Not the Man You Are Supposed to Be portrays a nation of men struggling to make sense of this strange new world, ultimately seeking out powerful new ways for them to be.

            Half of the world's population has one, the other half sometimes comes into contact with it, and yet a great deal of ignorance exists regarding the penis. Surprisingly many men think their penis is too short, even if it is above average in length. The fact that the morning erecti...on is the last of eight nightly erections is a well-kept secret. Or that the foreskin, once unfolded, is as big as a postcard. Men always carry their penis with them, but they do not know it as well as they think. Blending serious science, professional insight and disarming humour, professor of urology Piet Hoebeke clarifies the mysteries of the male reproductive organ. Professor Hoebeke addresses key questions, such as: Why do we have one? What does it do? How do I keep it fit and healthy? And of course: What to do when your foreskin gets stuck between the zipper of your trousers? Other areas cover in the book include: the evolution of the penis, size, deviations, sexual health, the disturbed relationship between the man and his penis, sperm production and the art of good penis maintenance.
