After seeing The Vagina Monologues, by Eve Ensler, Gabriel Constans realized the value of a similar investigation into men's feelings about their penis and its influence on them and others. THE PENIS DIALOGUES: Handle With Care explores the penis' effects upon men's lives and how being male is experienced and perceived. Men of various ages, occupations, sexual orientations and cultures talk about love, sex, relationships and painful, humorous and joyful moments with themselves and others.

This book investigates and lays bare the facts, myths, experiences, misperceptions and stories of that part of men's bodies by which they are so often defined. The book goes beyond the cliches, jokes and comparisons of male virility and power as men speak from the heart with honesty, curiosity, shock, bemusement and surprise.


It is not about judging, manipulating or reinforcing inequality and power in men's relationships. It is not about being "better" or "worse" than anyone else. You will not find tales of sexual exploits presented to titillate, boast or brag about being macho, though stories told from the penis's point of view are one of its interlocking threads.

While talking about the penis in ways men seldom have spoken before, they discover the common ground upon which they stand and celebrate their differences and similarities. As they painstakingly share their lives and insights, they begin to see the possibility of breaking the thousand year old chains of cultural conditioning and stereotyping that have kept them separated from one another and from the opposite sex.

Written with gratitude and respect for the seminal work of Eve Ensler in The Vagina Monologues
