PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Oct. 29, 2018 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Author Heidi Doheny Jay will debut her new book, “Confessions of 400 Men: True Revelations of Lust, Fidelity, Feelings & Fantasy” (ISBN: 978-1543925968) at Philly Art Collective: 253 N. 3rd Street Philadelphia, PA 19106 on Thursday, November 15, 2018 from 6-9 p.m. Press engagement is open from 5-6 p.m. Members of the press will receive a free copy of the book.
For “Confessions of 400 Men,” Ms. Doheny Jay spent two and half years interviewing men from all ages and walks of life asking them to divulge their innermost secrets about the women they’ve loved. She pulled back the curtain on the untold side of the relationship story- his side.
She heard everything – lifelong secrets, funny snafus, lovers that got away and the real reason men long for intimacy. She discovered how common it is for men to feel lonely and what actually drives them to be unfaithful. She learned why men work so hard at their careers and not so much, seemingly, at their personal relationships.
“We miss the girlfriend we married,” said Chris, a 59 year old married Caucasian professor from Delaware.
“Men like to fix things, that’s how we show you that we care. Women need to pay more attention to this,” said Trent, a 46 year old single African American social worker from Maine.
“The guy who actually wants to be in a relationship is worried that the perfect woman will come along and he won’t be ready,” said Steve, a 48 year old divorced African American transportation owner from the Midwest.
At a time when men are thought to be coldhearted and at best ruthless creatures, “Confessions of 400 Men” reveals their hidden side.
“This book exposes the side of men that’s not talked about or shown to the world. When men feel safe and believe they won’t be judged, they’ll allow themselves to be seen by others, but few are ever given that opportunity,” says Doheny Jay.
The author hopes to inspire men to feel more comfortable discussing their feelings and to help women better understand why men act the way they do.
“I set out to understand men better. I never expected to discover how lonely men are and how much they long to share their feelings,” Doheny Jay adds.
“Men wanted to talk, so I kept listening — but after 400 interviews I knew I had more than enough to convince the world that men need to be heard just as much as women do. I truly hope to shift the paradigm and allow men the same luxury women have had for years, to freely express their feelings.”
