Do you feel confused or scared in this changing social landscape? How do you talk to or approach women in the current climate? If you’re interested in a woman at a bar, how do you approach her and convey interest while making her feel safe?

This is a space for men to be angry, scared and any other emotion in the current climate.

An all-male group led by LCSW Colin Lentz and assisted by sexual health advocate Bryan Stacy, this is not a space to attack and correct behavior, but more a mancave to unpack aggression and sharing not-so-politically correct thoughts.

What this is a space for:

If you find yourself asking...

“I feel like I’m being associated with male aggressors just because I have a penis”
“I’m confused as to what actually is a violation of consent”
“I’m worried women are going to accuse me of assault if I say the wrong thing or touch them the wrong way”
“I feel regretful of scenarios which I took advantage of females in the past”
“I don’t know how to be an ally and advocate.”
“Is what I’m currently doing, enough?”
“I’m angry at the sheer amount of focus being placed on males responsibility”

What this is not a space for:

Specific individual blaming
Judgement with the group
