a series of 28 brief arguments, Blair deftly makes the case for moving
the abortion debate away from controlling and legislating women’s bodies
and instead directs the focus on men’s lack of accountability in
preventing unwanted pregnancies.
Highly readable, accessible,
funny, and unflinching, Blair builds her argument by walking readers
through the basics of fertility (men are 50 times more fertile than
women), the unfair burden placed on women when it comes to preventing
pregnancy (90% of the birth control market is for women), the
wrongheaded stigmas around birth control for men (condoms make sex less
pleasurable, vasectomies are scary and emasculating), and the
counterintuitive reality that men, who are fertile 100% of the time,
take little to no responsibility for preventing pregnancy.
result is a compelling and convincing case for placing the
responsibility—and burden—of preventing unwanted pregnancies away from
women and onto men.
- TIMELY & URGENT: Publishing at a critical sociopolitical moment following the overturning of Roe v. Wade; we will galvanize the outrage that will ensue to get this book into as many hands as possible.
- NEW FRAMEWORK: In 28 succinct arguments, Ejaculate Responsibly
shifts the responsibility of unintended pregnancy from women to
men—e.g., 90% of the birth control market targets women, yet women’s
eggs are only fertile 24 hours each month, while men are fertile
24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our cultural and historical focus on
women’s fertility instead of men’s is misplaced, and we need to teach
men to take responsibility.
