Abstract

This study of men’s lives, masculinities and (unplanned) fatherhood is a report of a research project commissioned by the Crisis Pregnancy Agency entitled “Men, Sexuality and Crisis Pregnancy: A study of Men’s Experience.” The report was launched on 18th June 2007 in the Gresham Hotel, Dublin. The report, a qualitative study by Professor Harry Ferguson and Fergus Hogan, is based on interviews with 45 men on their sexual histories, knowledge of sex and how they acquired it, contraception, sexual practices and outcomes of unplanned and crisis pregnancy. The researchers specifically recruited men who had experienced an unplanned pregnancy and crisis pregnancy. The report showed a lack of knowledge among men on sexual health and reproduction and identifies the need for men to be more aware of counselling and supports available to them in crisis pregnancy and abortion situations.
