As a man I was sexually active as a late teenager and early twenties but, I don’t want my girl to have been or be more sexually active than I am or was and don’t want my daughter to be either. If I was to have a son however, would I care as much? If my girl lied about her body count does it matter?

What if I said that I lost track of my body count and I don’t really know the number like that? Can someone be too vain if they’re constantly keeping track of their body count for bragging purposes or should you really know?

Yes, we all know about double standards, but, how much do we let it affect our everyday lives? You could meet someone you really feel and like, but, because a couple of things may not be status quo, you don’t go after them.

But what is the bigger picture of double standards? The bigger picture is that male or female, gay or straight people aren’t that different and that double standards just creates more opportunities for discrimination. So let’s break down all of these barriers on today’s show.

Let’s stop thinking that if you date outside of your race or choose the same gender that it will help increase your chances in a successful relationship, for those whose reasoning is for why they are choosing to do those things. And surprisingly a lot of people do feel that way. Why? Society, TV, The agenda. Who knows? A relationship is a relationship and the same problems or rewards can be found no matter what. Communication,  infidelity, responsibility, financial situations, abuse, good times and bad all occur no matter the belief.

Let’s stop thinking everybody isn’t sexually active because clearly they are right? We’re heading into times where stereotypes are getting shattered left and right. You don’t have to be a guy anymore or maybe never was only guys from the start to be into sports, gaming, rapping, etc. everything and everybody is going after what they want and desire while you’re sitting back miserable while everybody else is out attempting to live their best life. It’s your happiness at the end of the day and you should try to get it while the getting is good.

So what if their body count is way larger than yours (did they chill out now… is that out of their system. That’s their past life and they’re ready to be with you?) So what if the age difference may not be ideal (are they still more mature than people around your age. Do you see great potential in that person. What’s your parents age gap?) Double standards happen everyday, are you going to allow the opinions and thoughts of others keep you from living your life. Worrying about other hypocrites at the end of the day.

Yes, double standards can be annoying and not fun. But we all have them and use them whenever we see fit for a situation.

If you are looking to get something off of your chest or want to present a question to maybe get some insightful answers or if you just have a good story you want to tell. We would love to have you on the show!
