Many aspects of our culture perpetuate the Casanova Myth, the belief that what most young men want is sex with as many women as possible without concern for the women or any goal of commitment. Is it true? Do you believe it? Do young men and women believe it? In this episode, Dr. Andrew Smiler, licensed therapist and expert on boys, men, and masculinity, will draw upon his fascinating book, Challenging Casanova: Beyond The Stereotypes of the Promiscuous Young Male, to consider what young men really want. He will explore the unvoiced relationship goals and sexual behavior of the majority of young men. He will consider the unvoiced pressures and challenges that many young men face as well as the impact of cultural expectations, parental silence, and non-stop media suggestion on young men’s definitions of self, sexuality, choices and safety.
