'Boys & Sex' Reveals That Young Men Feel 'Cut Off From Their Hearts'

"We don't really have the luxury, in this current culture, of silence. Because if we don't talk to our kids, the media is going to educate them for us and we are not going to love the result." I'm so grateful for the work of author Peggy Orenstein because she gets the importance of parents talking with their kids about sexuality, about porn, about the importance of emotions, communication and pleasure in sex. I know these are tricky waters to navigate, especially with teens who act like they would rather die than engage in such conversations, but we must. I can tell you from professional experience that the alternative isn't working. Read Orenstein's new book Boys & Sex, or at the minimum, listen to her interview on NPR's Fresh Air, with Terry Gross and get inspired to start some great conversations with your kids!
