Changing perceptions about male sexualityIn his new groundbreaking book, noted expert on teenage and adult masculine behavior, Andrew Smiler, works to debunk the myth that teenage boys and young men are barely able to control their sex drives, which may lead to destructive hyper–sexuality, unwanted pregnancy, and sexually transmitted diseases. Dr. Smiler′s goal is to help everyone recognize that boys′s sexual development is multi–faceted and to give boys and those who care about them the tools they need to keep the stereotype from becoming a self–fulfilling prophecy.The author also shows how this shift in attitude could help create young men who are more mature and have better relationships with partners and friends.Explains how the Casanova Complex has developed over time and how it can hurt young malesProvides the latest research–based information on male sexuality, pulling from many sources, including the author′s own studiesOffers guidance for encouraging boys to develop lasting and meaningful relationshipsThis book dismantles the stereotypes of boys as driven only by an obsession with having intercourse with multiple partners, and calls for deeper growth and understanding of modern masculinity.
