Students will examine the dysfunctional popular culture myths of male sexuality and contrast them with models of realistic, functional masculine sexuality in an ever-changing cultural milieu. This study will expose male hyper-aggressive imagery in movies and advertising as a fantasy that cannot translate to healthy relationships, and demonstrate how repetitious immersion in this fantasy world can lead to desensitization and aberrant beliefs that too often play out as violent antisocial behaviors. Students will complete a variety of assignments that will help them clarify their own values and beliefs regarding sexual relationships.
