Finding Our Wayby Mark Lipman
Men talk about their sexuality
What do men really want sexually? How did they learn about sex? How does sexual expression change with age? Finding Our Way explores these questions and offers a rare glimpse into men's experience of their sexuality as it follows the discussions of ten men who meet at a weekend retreat. The men range in age from twenty-seven to seventy-one and come from a variety of backgrounds: a writer, an insurance agent, a clergyman and the owner of a dry cleaning store. They are heterosexual, gay and bisexual. Finding Our Way is a first step toward creating new role models and moving beyond the stereotypes surrounding male sexuality. The program helps men feel less afraid of closeness with other men and encourages both men and women to talk more openly about their sexuality. Note: See companion video Embracing Our Sexuality.
It is unique in the field, both in its compelling content and in its rare glimpse into the blessings and curses of male sexuality. See it at least twice.

FINDING OUR WAY is "must viewing" for all men (and women) exploring their lives, in particular, their sexuality in today's questioning society.

FINDING OUR WAY is an important and valuable resource for the growing field of Men's Studies. It should be used in a variety of academic courses related to gender issues, aging, and sexual health, as well as by men's groups in non-academic settings.

Rarely have respect, humor and searing honesty been gathered together in a portrait of adult male sexuality. FINDING OUR WAY is so satisfyingly and skillfully creative that only later did I realize how much it had informed and challenged me intellectually. Filmed with affection for its subjects and respect for their dilemmas and honesty, the filmmakers' eye seems naturally one's own. It is unique in the field, both in its compelling content and in its rare glimpse into the blessings and curses of male sexuality. See it at least twice.
