them as workers. When one compares respondents' reports of abuse and selected

variables, it appears that younger women are more at risk than older women, as

and the evidence about the influence of marital status and household income is

Quitting Pornography : Men Speak out about How they did it and Why. An
Definitive Penis Size Survey
For millennia, men the world over have been obsessed with penis size.
Sly jokes, furtive glances in the locker room and wildly exaggerated
claims of endowment convincingly suggest that "penis envy" is
a decidedly male trait. 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?
Survivors of Sexual Abuse
Abuse of Males: Prevalence, Lasting Effects, and Resources
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.'"
