For Mason, the simple act of kissing was something he largely avoided in high school, afraid that without enough experience he would do it wrong. When he went to college he met a girl, Jeannie, who invited him back to her dorm room to fool around. Over the span of two years, Orenstein spoke to hundreds of boys across the United States, ranging in age from their early teens to mids and spanning all races, socioeconomic backgrounds, religious beliefs and even sexual orientations.
