Manhood: The Bare Reality
100 men bare all in a collection of photographs and interviews about manhood and ‘manhood’.
These days we are all less bound by gender and traditional roles, but is there more confusion about what being a man means? From veteran to vicar, from porn addict to prostate cancer survivor, men from all walks of life share honest reflections about their bodies, sexuality, relationships, fatherhood, work and health in this pioneering and unique book.
Just as Bare Reality: 100 women, their breasts, their stories presented the un-airbrushed truth about breasts for women, Manhood: The Bare Reality shows us the spectrum of ‘normal’, revealing men’s penises and bodies in all their diversity and glory, dispelling body image anxiety and myths.
Sensitive and compassionate, Manhood will surprise you and reassure you. It may even make you reconsider what you think you know about men, their bodies and masculinity.

Inspiring and unique
I found this book both inspiring and unique in the level of truth and intimacy it conveys. As someone familiar with the feelings of shame and anxiety described by some of the participants, and of the desperate loneliness that comes from feeling unable to express these fears, I think this book will prove valuable to both males and females in gaining an understanding of what is in truth a complicated relationship.
