HOW TO TALK TO BOYS ABOUT SEX: PW TALKS WITH PEGGY ORENSTEIN.
Boys and girls grow up with the same pop culture, music, videos, and social media that objectifies, sexualizes, and demeans women. We give our daughters this huge counter-narrative, we make sure they have their Ruth Bader Ginsberg books, their positive female role models. But boys are just in that milieu absorbing those messages about women. Further, girls are allowed to feel. Boys often told me they trained themselves not to feel, not to cry; they learn to suppress and disconnect from emotions. That obviously affects the way they approach emotional and physical intimacy.
