I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoy Feminist literature, but it isn t the best Several of the essays seem to draw on forever, but others are simply incredible Perhaps my favorite essay, Hooking Up with Healthy Sexuality The Lessons Boys Learn and Don t Learn About Sexuality, and Why a Sex Positive Rape Prevention Paradigm Can Benefit Everyone Involved, was written by Brad Perry I enjoy reading about rape, sex, and gender relations form a male perspective because I am bombarded with I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoy Feminist literature, but it isn t the best Several of the essays seem to draw on forever, bu
