TEDTalks – Philip Zimbardo: The demise of guys

Psychologist Philip Zimbardo talked about the increasing failure of boys and men to engage with women in education and in social relationships, and how more men than ever are retreating to the ‘safety’ of male-only pursuits like pubs, strip clubs, and sporting events. As causes, he cites the near ubiquity of both video gaming and pornography industries, which encourage solo activity and give a stunted and unrealistic view of relationships with ‘real’ women.

Psychologist Philip Zimbardo asks, “Why are boys struggling?” He shares some stats (lower graduation rates, greater worries about intimacy and relationships) and suggests a few reasons — and he asks for your help! Watch his talk, then take his short 10-question survey: http://on.ted.com/PZSurvey
