Hi, I'm Dr. Laura Schlessinger; welcome to our YouTube channel. And I got a letter from Daniel I thought was worth answering because a lot of us can learn from it:
"I'm 16 years old and have been reading your book 10 Stupid Things Men Do To Mess Up Their Lives [every 16-year-old boy should read that book]. Lately I've been having a problem with the females I've been dating. They always get it into their head that they have to do something sexual to keep me happy which is really starting to annoy me. I'd rather be with someone for who they are rather than be sexual with them. Is there any way I can get my dates to stop going for sex as a way to please me?"
[Laughs] It is amazing that we have a young man that is not going, "Hey the sexual revolution, the woman's revolution, we get something for nothing, this is very good." This is obviously a male that is already a man because he wants depth. And, girls are slutty these days, at all ages. They are starting earlier than 16 and going later than 40-something. It's amazing, we had the feminist revolution in an attempt to make women think they were more than just their bodies, so what do they do now? They're just being bodies! Very smart.
I think what you do is you tell the girls point blank out: I'm 16-years-old, I'm a hot blooded male, I would love to have sex all over the place that means nothing, but truly I'm more interested in having a real friendship with a girl and this is where I'm at. I'd like to shoot hoops, go to movies, talk about books and that's where I am.
And, I'm very proud of you because a lot of young men getting into all these sexual relationships at an early age one after another after another, become very crass about love, about women and about sex. And that doesn't set you up well for imagining the beauty of making love to the mother of your children and the wife for the rest of your life. So, you're doing this the smart way...ha!
I'm Dr. Laura Schlessinger, back next time
