The 2016 study, ‘A Picture of Health’ found that 41% of boys feel that the portrayal of men in media images are unrealistic.
Six packs, masculinity and testicular cancer are the topics we explore as part of our boys only, balls workshop! The session challenges the ideals of ‘what is the perfect male body? and encourages and promotes a positive body image for teens.
