The Definitive Penis Size Survey
For millennia, men the world over have been obsessed with penis size.

Now, from the hinterland of Canada, a nerdy, pseudo-science minded individual invites you to participate in "The Definitive Penis Size Survey" which boldly dares to address the following perplexing questions: what precisely is an "average" penis size? can penis size be correlated with any other attribute? are certain ethnic/racial groups more endowed than others? to what extent are men dissatisfied with their size?

Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse

Sexual Abuse of Males: Prevalence, Lasting Effects, and Resources

Interview with Michael Kimmel
Author of 'Manhood in America'. "I think the women's movement has been one of the most powerful movements of our time and it certainly offers enormous possibilities for men as well as women. In part, the argument that I make in my book is that men are terrified of feminism because they are afraid they will lose their ability to prove their manhood. But I believe that feminism offers men enormous possibilities to become more nurturing and caring fathers, friends, partners. One of the writers that I found in my research wrote the following line in 1913, when he decided that he wanted to support women's suffrage and support feminism. 'Feminism will make it possible for the first time for men to be free.'"

'A non-profit publication dedicated to providing Australian boys with stuff to read. While girls in our country have plenty of suitable fictional and non-fictional literature coming their way, it has been identified that one of the reasons many boys may fall behind in the area of literacy is a lack of material which they want to (or think they should) read, this happening at an age when they decide ultimately how easy it will be to develop these skills of communication which are becoming increasingly important. "Most males experience isolation in adolescence. They don't have the language to communicate their feelings".
