Do Women Know How to Pursue Men?

When it comes to dating, there is a social constrict that says: “men are hunters”.  Therefore, it is only natural for men to pursue women.  In the animal kingdom, no animal hunts for sex.  They only hunt for sustenance.  That means animals only hunt for that which feeds and nourishes them.  When it comes to a mate and sex, male animals

Are Men Having Better Luck Finding Love in Other Countries?

For decades, women in the US were asked if money or a great sex life was more important in a relationship.  Until the mid 80s, women said they preferred a great lover over money.  What happened?  How did the value system of women change?  In 2019, the workforce is filled with more women than men.  And many women earn much higher incomes than the past.  Yet, they would

My Partner Cheated….Now What?

The general consensus about WHY people cheat is that there’s a problem with either the cheater – or the relationship. Often we assume cheaters have a history/pathology, or at best a form of immaturity that pushes them into infidelity. We assume the primary relationship is flawed in some significant way that creates a “need” for external sex and intimacy. Either way, we tend to view infidelity as

Do You Know How to Transform Your Intimate Relationship into a Partnership?

What is a partnership?  While there are many definitions, including a business partnership, I will take one from Merriam-Webster.  It says “a relationship resembling a legal partnership and usually involving close cooperation between parties having specified and joint rights and responsibilities”.  It also says “an arrangement in which people engage in an activity or business with one another or share something with each other”.  In other words, partnership requires a

Should Women Have to “Seal the Marriage Deal”?

When people think of marriage, they think of a man first proposing to a woman.  However, the question that is rarely asked is: why did he choose that woman?  In the US, there are more women than men.  Therefore, technically speaking a man has more options for marriage than women do.  Yet, he narrows it down to one.  Why did he choose?

Are Men Afraid to Say Why They Cheat?

Is cheating ever justified?  If you listen to the cheater, they will attempt to present a full proof case for why they cheated.  Yet, for some reason, the infidelity was preceded by lies and deception.  If the case was full proof, why would you need to lie?

For decades, we men have

If “All” Men Cheat, Why Not Allow Them to Have a Second Woman?

For decades, women have chanted: All Men Cheat!  When the self fulfilling prophesy comes true, those women become angry and disappointed with men.  Why?  If you really believe your man will cheat, why not allow him to have a second woman?  That way you can mitigate the chances of him sleeping around recklessly.   

Besides, there is an age-old debate about monogamy amongst humans.  Is monogamy a natural part of human existence?  If so, why is it commonly believed that men will cheat?  If it’s not, why attempt to force it?  Has nature designed men to sleep with many women in order to perpetuate the species?  Or is sexual compatibility at the root of the problem?   

In previous shows, we uncovered that men and women do not have open and honest conversations about sex and relationships.  In fact, most, if not all, don’t listen to one another.  If this is the case, perhaps the answer to why men cheat lies in the communication gaps between men and women. 

On this show, we are going to strip the topic of sex down to naked truths, even if they are ugly.  With those truths, we are going to make the case for why men should be allowed to have a second woman.  If a second woman is not the answer, we will uncover what men have been asking for and not receiving in love.

Is It True That Men Don’t Like Listening to Women?

There are women who complain that men don’t listen.  Is it true that men don’t listen?  Do men check out when a woman is speaking with him?  If so, why would this happen?

According to some men, they believe women become emotional about many topics.  Men say women’s expressions are not usually logical or fact based.  Or women depend mostly on their personal experience to make their point.  And if she becomes upset or passionate about the subject, the man may feel as though he will not be able to speak.  As a result, he remains silent.  Hence, the reputation men have earned; men do not like to express themselves. 

What if men have created a false presupposition about the way women think and speak?  What if the value of the woman’s message is lost to those presuppositions, even though she is being emotional? 

On this show, Ted and Blair are going to facilitate a conversation that may be highly charged.  However, this is the opportunity to get to the bottom of it.  We invite you to help us explore this topic in search of the facts, even if it does get a little emotional.
