Dr. Joseph Prud'homme addresses the harms of sexual objectification of males in our society. He discusses the mass marketing of the sexual commodification of men, a growing trend in our country, and one that is especially harmful to males. The impact of this trend on the psychological wellbeing of men has not been adequately addressed, he explains.
