Real Masculinity and Manhood

Core: How To Connect With Your Masculine Energy

Most men feel stuck in life, empty, and unhappy despite having a lot of wealth, good job, fame, and several conquests with the opposite sex. These men experience these problems because they lack the mature masculine energy. In fact, this is the reason why most men who seem to have it all sometimes decide to take their own life. Fortunately, someone has decided to provide a solution. David Tian is a Ph.D. holder in psychology. In his course known as the CORE, he reveals various ways any man can reach the ultimate masculinity and achieve true joy, happiness, and live a more fulfilling life.

The Masculine Hegemony

Connell has coined the phrase hegemonic masculinity to explain the inherent variations of masculinity.13 He argues that hegemonic masculinity involves not only the domination and exploitation of men over women but also the domination and exploitation of certain kinds of men over other men. This is accomplished, in part, by instituting an ideal type of masculinity that is, strong, aggressive, physically dominating, wealthy tough men like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ted Turner, and Michael Jordan. Today our understanding of masculinity is based on physical power, brute force, rationality, and controlled emotion. This is a hollow image, based on cultural icons that do not reflect the reality of most men's lives. Nonetheless, this ascendancy of a man's man is supported by social structures in which the concept of masculinity is embedded religion, politics, and popular culture. For example, heterosexual, white, upper-middle-class, reproductive, serially monogamous men are...

Legitimate Masculinity

While researching sperm, I have been intrigued by the changing role of men in our society. I find myself reading with both fascination and irritation pop culture's accounts of how men have suffered from the feminist movement, especially the women's self-help movement. Students in my women's studies classes, especially frustrated young men, often exclaim how confusing everyday life has become, due in part to feminism. They express concerns ranging from issues of employment to childrearing and, most important, dating. My students can often find examples of cultural expressions of male angst. Movies like Fight Club and popular books such as Susan Faludi's Stiffed The Betrayal of the American Man and Christina Hoff Sommers's The War Against Boys How Misguided Feminism Is Harming Our Young Men are, to my mind, superficial, yet meaningful, illustrations of today's masculinity.16 It seems to me there are several connections to be made between the increased knowledge about and control over...

In the Beginning There Was Sperm

Yet however numerous the meanings, all sperm originates in the male body. As such, our prevailing ideas about men and masculinity are used to measure and evaluate the relative social value of sperm. This is particularly relevant at this historical moment, when the rise of sperm banks has given greater access to sperm than ever before. I would argue that this increased access, alongside a much more public presence of sperm in everyday life think of the stain on Monica Lewinsky's dress or the numerous references to checking for DNA through sperm samples as reported in the news media is being experienced by some as a threat to the power that men have traditionally wielded just by the very nature of being men. While there have been crises of masculinity throughout history, the fact that sperm can now be manipulated outside of men's bodies, can even be bought and sold like other commodities, can be tested and used as evidence in crime cases, and can be used for conceiving a baby with...

Diving In Follow That Sperm

Interested in these ironies, in this book I explore the power and complexity of semen. Using a follow that sperm approach, I first trace the historical journey of sperm from its fabulous Western bioscientific discovery to its war-weary travails in the vaginal crypt. Attaching my analytic lens to sperm itself provides interesting perspectives on how sperm is spent and is reabsorbed, as well as how it swims, spurts, careens, and crashes through ducts, penises, vaginas, test tubes, labs, families, cultures, and politics. Examining the science of semen historically and culturally, I show how scientific representations of sperm and semen change over time. Much like the fluid of semen itself can leak onto different fabrics and into different bodies, the meanings of semen are able to seep into our consciousness. How does sperm relate to manhood What does it mean to be a real man A real father In a sense, this book's analysis reveals how sticky or messy and complex masculinity is in the 21st...

Meaning of parenthood

Researchers have also sought to understand the continuing attraction of parenthood. Callan's Australian research (1982, 1983) suggests this maybe because virtually all societies are essentially pronatalistic, praising the virtues of parenthood and encouraging reproduction. In British culture, for example, research has shown that there is such a societal expectation to reproduce that those (in particular, women) who either voluntarily or involuntarily do not do so are seen as outside the norm (Blyth and Moore 2001 Greil 1991 Miall 1985 Morell 2000 Woollett and Boyle 2000). The stigma of childlessness, however, is by no means an exclusively female problem. Fathering a child is viewed socially as confirmation of a man's virility (Callan 1982) and a childless man may feel that others doubt his masculinity (Mahlstedt 1985). While a good deal of research has excluded never-pregnant females, still more has excluded male adolescents. Only three studies could be identified from the last decade...

Icsi And Male Fertility

Each technological conception of semen enables new strategies to further measure, define, control, and use sperm. Similar to the evolution of systems that define and classify normal sperm, semen manipulations have proliferated from the low-tech donor insemination, intracervi-cal, or intrauterine, to the high-tech intracytoplasmic sperm injection, where a single sperm cell is injected into an oocyte, commonly called an egg. These innovations related to human sperm are not isolated events but, rather, part of sweeping technical advances into human reproduction, with profound implications for men and masculinity. and masculinity the immense power of ICSI to restore men's fertility (and, simultaneously, their masculinity) is undermined by the fact that real social barriers make ICSI available only to certain men. In reading scientific and popular accounts of ICSI, I have noted with interest the celebratory spin that is used to emphasize the effect of ICSI for infertile men. It is not...

Diseases Affecting The Hair

Hair is an extremely important part of an individual's appearance. Loss of hair on the scalp or an excessive amount of unwanted hair on other body parts causes great psychological distress. Our perception of femininity and masculinity is greatly affected by hair quantity, hair distribution, and hair styling.

Fetish and Related Behaviors

Increasingly, fetish focus has converged on the use of specialized garments of leather and rubber (North, 1981 Steele, 1996), many of which have become integrated, to a degree, into mainstream fashion (Steele, 1996). Gay leather sex has been said to constitute a celebration of Greco-Roman ideas of masculinity a hypermale society that embraces classical male values and rituals such as honor, service, initiation, mentoring, and paying one's dues (Brame, Brame, and Jacobs, 1993 30). ing. For example, a study of homosexual men with foot fetish found that many of the 262 respondents emphasized the sensual nature of the fetish object (feet and footwear), as well as its symbolic reference to masculinity (Weinberg, Williams, and Calhan, 194).

Semen As Men As Semen

Throughout this book, I provide examples of how the separation between semen sperm and men boys is diffuse. Because semen comes exclusively from male bodies and because men have been so central in the scientific discovery of semen and the subsequent proliferation of seminal enterprises (such as pornography, forensics, and fatherhood rights), it seems to me that men are clearly invested in the representations of semen as inherently linked to their sense of selfhood. In other words, men (as well as women) have represented semen through ideas about masculinity as a way of mirroring back some measure of the man. There has been a long history of seepage between the represented and the representation. The more masculine the man, the more manly his semen, and vice versa. for the characteristics of the producer, the man. However, we've seen that sperm are not just the embodiment of men at times, men also become endowed with the characteristics of their sperm. At a crime scene where seminal...

Origins of Fetish Practice

The little boy whose childhood curiosity, fantasies, anxieties, and wishes lead him to endow his mother with a substitute penis is constructing only a temporary, elusive fantasy. . . that the adult fetishist will concretize into a shoe or fur piece As Freud was the first to insist, the extravagant sexual theories of little boys may be outgrown and forgotten but they are never entirely given up. They are repressed . . . but persist as unconscious fantasies that are ready to return . . . whenever there is a serious threat, imagined or actual, to a man's hard-earned masculinity.

Honorable Death Kamikaze Sperm

Beyond the arena of reproductive science, other scientific representations of sperm are being constructed. Particularly salient at this historical moment, given the current crisis in masculinity, is the way sperm competition theory is being used to explain and promote certain ideas about human sexuality, relationships, and reproduction. As with fertility science, the projections of behavior, motive, and character flow freely between sperm cells and the men who produce them. New renderings of sperm competition theory have taken this transference a step further. Here, the masculine imagery of car racing is used to bring to mind speed, fierce competition, and danger. Not only are Nascar-racing tropes used in this text, but also WWII fighter jets, football, and nuclear destruction are used to illustrate sperm behavior. And what can we learn from these analogies Completing the journey is not as important as getting there first. Faster, rally-racing sport cars are able to capture the...

Polyspermous Semen Is Everywhere

The bombardment of images, news stories, and scientific rhetoric about semen can sometimes seem overwhelming. Semen can be represented as engendered, malleable, agentic, emotive, instructive, sacred, profane, entertaining, controversial, empowering, dirty, clean, normal, abnormal, potent, impotent, powerful, incriminating, anthropomorphic, uniform, polymorphic, and deterministic. Even though semen is diversely, even contradictorily, represented in the preceding list of terms, the meanings of semen are deployed, on the whole, to reinforce a sense of virile masculinity. These macho representations of semen enforce ideas about the differences between men and women, in terms of both their gender and their sexuality. Yet while sperm may reign supreme, arguably we live in a moment where traditionally defined masculinity can be seen as weakening. With the rise of the metrosexual, the professional sports steroids scandals, the outing of impotence with the success of Viagra, the mainstreaming...

Expansion of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex Gender and Reproduction

In 1981 the university mandated that the Institute be overseen by an independent board of trustees. Following Geb-hard's retirement, in 1982 they appointed June Machover Reinisch, a developmental biopsychologist, as the third director, and research was expanded to include biomedical and psychobiological issues. In 1983, the Institute was renamed The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction. New research examined the consequences of maternal hormone and drug treatment during pregnancy on the psychosexual development of offspring (Reinisch, Mortensen, & Sanders, 1993). Sexual behavior research was maintained with studies on high-risk sexual behavior related to AIDS and other STDs (Reinisch, Hill, Sanders, & Ziemba-Davis, 1995). A series of research symposia resulted in the Kinsey Institute Series of volumes, including Masculinity Femininity (Reinisch, Rosenblum, & Sanders, 1990), Adolescence and Puberty (Bancroft & Reinisch, 1990), Homosexuality Heterosexuality...

YvXNuclaus Mitochondria

Intensified efforts to scientifically comprehend human semen appear to be consistent with the evolutionary logic of scientific progress. Measuring and evaluating the size, shape, and speed of sperm are a few of a number of scientific techniques that are aimed at constructing the health and the pathologies of sperm. One example of how knowing, naming, and diagnosing semen's pathological forms is produced in interaction with existing beliefs about pathological men is evident in an infertility textbook for medical practitioners. Spark's 1988 book on infertile men includes a chapter encompassing sophisticated techniques for medically managing infertility entitled Coping with the Hopelessly Infertile Man. The use of the terms coping and hopeless indicate the threat to masculinity that is assumed by the lack of fertility. For example, the crossover to popular culture gives us the pejorative vernacular of shooting blanks, which refers to men's inability to deliver, and live ammunition, which...

Scientific Production Of Sperm

There are different scientific epochs of sperm and semen. These epochs are driven by technology, scientific advances in reproduction, and historical views of masculinity and men. As in most scientific inquiry, each epoch represents itself as an evolutionary step forward from previous knowledge. The scientific story of semen is thus a progressive one, leading to the enlightened place in which we find ourselves today. Scientists often comment on their predecessors as if they were ignorant or irrational in proposing bizarre theories. Interestingly, this retrospective judgment rarely becomes reflexive among contemporary scientists, who behave as if they are not as culturally situated as their predecessors were. It is not a coincidence that the narrative I reconstruct here sperm's rise to power, fall from grace, and resurrection follows the retrospective popular cultural story of contemporary Western man's own rise to power and ongoing reaction to the perceived threat of feminism and...

Research Problems And Future Directions

Introversion and masculinity-femininity for males, and all scales except social introversion for females (59). A 1988 study of 25 women with chronic pelvic pain indicated that this group not only had more substance abuse problems than their controls, but had more somatization, adult sexual problems, reported history of sexual abuse, and depression (60,61). Others have reported similar associations between substance abuse and sexual physical abuse histories in chronic pelvic pain patients (62). Understanding how psychological perspectives develop, change over time (with and without effective treatment), and affect treatment success could provide valuable information for development of effective treatment programs.

Shooting Blanks Or Shooting Banks

Although semen banking threatens actual men with respect to their beliefs about fatherhood and paternal deprivation, semen banking has also facilitated progressive social change. While the liberating potential of semen banking for women cannot be underestimated, fatherhood is being reconstituted. The forces of capitalism and masculinity are encroaching on traditional fatherhood and enabling a myriad of options to be imagined and achieved gay daddies, blended gay families, father-figures that many lesbian and single women recruit to be part of their children's lives. At the same time, reproductive professionals are attempting to wrest control of reproductive processes from women by creating barriers to their direct purchase of semen. At present, semen banks rarely send their products directly to consumers. Rather, due to both medical restrictions and fear of litigation, either the semen is sent While the fatherhood rights movement can be fairly easily deconstructed as a nostalgic and...

Culture And Psychotherapy

Supported therapies have rarely been investigated in ethno-cultural minority samples in the United States. Internationally, potentially relevant constructs have been proposed but as yet not empirically tested. Readiness for self-disclosure may vary across cultures (Toukmanian & Browers, 1998), and cultural variations in self-experience may be relevant to psychotherapy (Draguns, 2002). Attention has been focused upon the five cultural dimensions intensively investigated by Hofstede (2001) individualism-collectivism, power distance, uncertainty avoidance, masculinity-femininity, and long-term versus short-term time orientation. Specific hypotheses have been formulated, but not yet validated, concerning therapist preferences and client expectations in relation to these five constructs (Draguns, 2002). Apromis-ing multinational research project (Orlinsky, 1999) is focused on changes in the experience of psychotherapists during their careers. Qualitative, ethnographic methods have also...

Girls Gone Wild For Sperm

There is a new niche market of seminal ejaculate films that expand on the glorification of men's ejaculate. Unlike other pornographic genres, these movies focus on semen as the central theme of the narrative and the action, not solely the denouement. Titles such as Semen Demons, Desperately Seeking Semen, The Cum Cocktail, We Swallow, Sperm Overdose (volumes 1-6), Sperm Dreams, Sperm Burpers (volumes 1-5), A Splash of Sperm, and Feeding Frenzy (volumes 1-3) venture beyond the money shot toward eroticizing seminal ingestion. The contents of the promotional descriptions of the videos, as well as the videos themselves, depict a variety of women drinking and bathing in semen from diverse male partners. Women appear to be insatiable and competitive about their desire for ingesting the semen as they rush to get to the ejaculating penis, the full shot glass, or residual ejaculate on a sheet. What does it mean to see women completely overcome with their desire to drink semen To smear it all...

Gender Roles

Gender roles serve both social and intrapsychic functions. With respect to the former function, gender role expectations guide people's judgments and evaluations of others. When one assumes that another person possesses certain characteristics on the basis of his or her gender, one is engaging in gender stereotyping. Gender stereotyping is pervasive and can influence judgments in a subtle, non-conscious, and unintended manner. Gender roles also influence interpersonal evaluation directly Aperson who conforms to the appropriate gender role is likely to be evaluated positively, whereas deviation from that role may result in avoidance, disapproval, or even outright hostility. Gender roles serve an intrapsychic function by helping people to define themselves as individuals and to guide their behavior. Importantly, however, people do vary in the extent to which they identify with a given gender role. That is, not all men view themselves in traditionally masculine terms, nor do all women...

Technosemen

Nosemen, then, relies on actual men but improves on them and may even eliminate them from the process of reproduction and parenting altogether. But taking the actual man out of the picture has not gone unnoticed. In fact, I would argue that sperm banking and donor insemination have escalated the crisis in masculinity and the legitimacy of men as social beings. Judging from the list of presidents, executive directors, and medical directors from the AATB, owners and operators of sperm banks are overwhelmingly male, and we could consider their role as surrogate fathers in the reproductive process. In this role, male prerogatives may have determined who may be a donor and who may not, which social and genetic characteristics are most appropriate within the semen they sell, and what the social relations of donors will be to the children produced with their donations. While semen banks have the potential to radically open up control to women over their own bodies, to assist in the...

Fluid Tenacity

For centuries, scientists and scholars have attempted to define, manipulate, and control semen and sperm. Their work has been consistently informed and influenced by their own gendered and cultural understandings of men and masculinity and at times has even been a direct response to various crises in masculinity. As discussed in this chapter, the current historical moment is rife with examples of this practice. The scientific practices that elevate sperm to the lofty heights of sole reproductive actor also, ironically, transform sperm into a relatively easily accessible commodity. Modern reproductive technologies and services can now limit a man's role in human reproduction to that of an anonymous sperm donor. Certain men and women react to this spermatic marketplace by intensifying efforts to defend against what they perceive as an attack on masculinity and fatherhood. Through a backlash against feminism, a battle cry has been issued to the ranks of men to stand up and defend their...

The Fertility Factor

Interestingly, many of the infertility risk factors cited here involve behaviors, occupations, or activities that are commonly associated with stereotypical notions of masculinity. As reported in many sociological and psychological studies, however, women overwhelmingly bear the blame of infertility and the brunt of more invasive treatments. Even though infertility is typically explained as one-third male factor, one-third female factor, and one-third unknown, women self-report feeling as if it is their responsibility and their failure when reproduction does not occur. But clearly male bodies, too, can be implicated by infertility, and men experience stigma from being diagnosed with low sperm counts. Indeed, in a clinician's guidebook to diagnosing motility problems, Spark instructs that low-motility sperm appear to move as if befuddled. They possess no purposeful forward motion and occasionally exhibit circular or erratic movement patterns. 20 What happens when the performance of...

Testing Methods

Ment (which tends to be information and concepts learned in instructional programs). Noncognitive measures generally assess personality, interests, attitudes, beliefs, and so on. One operational difference between the two domains is that questions on cognitive measures tend to be answered correctly or incorrectly or in some cases to vary in their degree of correctness. Noncognitive measures, on the other hand, measure the strength of one's tendencies, sometimes in a bipolar manner. Thus, scales may have two endpoints, such as masculinity-femininity or introversion-extraversion. Responses to questions or ratings that place a respondent along a continuum concerning one of these dimensions are not correct or incorrect they simply represent differences. This fundamental distinction among cognitive and noncognitive measures in psychology is quite important.

Sperm In The Future

Understanding semen in contemporary cultures means we must also account for the inherent instability of masculinity. Due to extreme shifts in cultural values, biotechnological innovation, and economic and geopolitical instability, traditional beliefs and representations of masculinity are now threatened. The preexisting ideal types of men and prevailing expressions of a rugged masculinity are being rendered obsolete or impossible to achieve male breadwinner, father, protector, warrior. During these times of intense reorganization of male power, particularly experienced in the last 25 years, there is a battle for agency between men and their sperm. Semen does not merely represent men it has taken on a life of its own. Men, as supremely rational beings, are taken over by their sperm. Sperm drive men to masturbate, compete, reproduce, ejaculate, infect, and incriminate themselves. Perhaps, as some industries would have it, men are ultimately controlled by their sperm (instead of their...

Overview Of The Book

Historically been considered a bastion of masculinity. Many of the earliest sperm scientists, themselves mostly men, envisioned semen as the key to reproduction sperm was a cell that embodied a preformed individual. These scientists marveled at the sperm cells' powerful agency and self-contained role in reproduction. However, through the progress of technological and scientific innovation and the skillful manipulation of semen, sperm cells have now become merely raw materials that can be technologically procured, amplified, and even programmed for predictability. Despite the triumph of scientific ingenuity to capture and program individual sperm cells, through their studies of human sperm competition scientists represent sperm as having distinct personalities and jobs. This chapter traces the rise, fall, and resurgence of sperm as told by reproductive scientists. After establishing the Western scientific origins of sperm and semen in chapter 2, this volume is divided into two parts....
