This is part 2 of our conversation on masculinity where we get real about the challenges men face with strict gender conformity and how it ties in with relationships. Today we’re focusing on sex – the myths, the misconceptions, and the reflections including the myth that men are “easy” and constantly “ready to go”, the patriarchal policing of men by using the term “gay” for a man who doesn’t follow the hetero-normative male code, and sexual fluidity is not the same thing as sexual orientatio
Today, I’m sitting down with a room full of diverse men to talk about the challenges of masculinity.

As the #MeToo movement progresses, men are feeling anxious about navigating the current climate with gender norms changing and masculinity being under scrutiny. Today, I’m discussing toxic masculinity, redefining gender roles, and how some of our sexual stereotypes about men directly impact their sex lives in a negative way.
