April Masini (www.AskApril.com)
and Dr. Diana enjoyed another provocative, informative discussion –
their first in 2016. The numbers alone confirm her popularity: the Ask April
advice column and interactive relationship advice forum is where almost
26 thousand questions have been posted and answered; she has 1.4
million Twitter followers and more than 620 thousand Facebook fans. The
conversation began with an article and April’s interview within it – “Staying hot for hubby is essential for a successful marriage.” This
created a firestorm of controversy! Some responding women said, “Men
should love women for who they are, as opposed to what they look like.”
Why does it have to be either or? Men are usually more visual. We
discussed the possibilities of being anti-feminist and perhaps old
fashioned. April did another interview with the Wall Street Journal regarding the male/female roles in dating and who should pay for dates. The pursuit of sex model
of dating is really what informs much of these dynamics. The
conversations extended to self-acceptance as well as love and power.
Tune-in for a fascinating 60 minutes!
