It’s Advice Goddess Radio -- bringing you the best people from science…fascinating, fun professor and therapist guests who will nerd you out of your love, dating sex, and relationship problems. 

High praise from a male listener for this show: "Last night's radio show was right on.  It was like the Professor had been taking notes at our seduction forum.  He actually gets it."

Very interesting guest this week -- Syracuse anthropology professor Dr. John Marshall Townsend, author of the terrific book, "What Women Want--What Men Want: Why the sexes still see love & commitment so differently.

We dug into the research (like the hilarious study Townsend did showing pictures of men and women in Burger King uniforms or fancy dress. Of course, men didn't care where the girl worked; just whether she was hot. Of course, the women went for the homely guy in the blazer and the Rolex over the hot guy in the BK uniform). And we discussed what the research -- including Townsend's latest study on casual sex -- says about how we should approach love, dating, sex and relationships.
