An Insight into: “Boys & Sex” by Peggy Orenstein

In our society we have so many preconceived notions about sex itself without taking into consideration what is actually happening in the minds of the people involved.

 “ Boys only think of one thing “ A line we have probably heard a hundred times from the older men in our family. Is it fair to keep making these assumptions without understanding the society that has put men in this position? 

Often, we blame men for not being able to discuss their feelings and be sensitive but let’s start talking about the in-built standards men feel they have to live up to today.

Tune in to this MHT podcast to listen to a young man’s perspective on the ideas discussed in the book and become part of the conversation. Dr. Ashish Narvekar’s journey to understand the mind has brought him here to his first podcast episode, to look beyond the confines of his professional capacity as a Doctor.

Using the tools of understanding via Philosophy, Psychology, Mythology, Religion, Science and Spirituality, let us attempt to reformulate a proper Mode of Being, such that we can discuss Ideas respectfully and with nuance.

About MHT Media Review
