Miss Understood No. 34 — Let's Talk About Sex

Nothing is better than sex between two people who love and trust each other deeply, yet our culture tries to sell marital sex as “boring” and one-night stands to be “liberating”. So, in Episode No. 34 of Miss Understood, we talk about sex, baby (In the confines of marriage, of course) following Full House star's recent interview with Mayim Bialik for her “Breakdown' podcast, where she defined sex in marriage as a “gift from God” that should be celebrated. We also list some of the dating advice divorce lawyers have for couples and try to define if going to a strip club, getting a lap dance, and dirty dancing with someone of the opposite sex should be considered adultery. We may disagree on a few of these, but some indecent acts are a hard "NO" in a monogamous relationship. Plus, revolutionaries are speaking out against the inhumane treatment of women in Iran. So, we address the growing momentum of the Hijab protests, providing some historical context by looking back on the 1979 revolution when Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini seized control of the government and forced the nation under fundamentalist Islamic rule. We also debate Euthanasia laws in Canada and question the ethics of being able to get medically assisted suicide and the slippery slope it can create. Of course, Hollywood can't stop romanticizing murderers, and Netflix's latest show, The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, seems to have done just that, so naturally, we add our two cents to the conversation. We argue that the glamourization of serial killers creates more of them, and sympathizing with their troubled upbringings is disrespectful to victims of their crimes. And to round out the episode, we end on a lighter note by talking about Russia and the thousands of men fleeing the country to avoid conscription for a war they morally oppose.

After high school, he started taking community college courses. But he still wondered what he really wanted to do. That's when his best friend suggested culinary school. After all, Luke's nickname was Lunchbox when he was a kid.  Culinary school changed Luke's world. He excelled in the hands-on work — but he also had to get past the academics.

In Episode No. 33 of Miss Understood, we piggyback off last week's episode and rank who we think the worst four men in the media are right now. Leonardo DiCaprio is the first person we accuse of being the worst for his eco-hypocrisy and inability to date women over 25. He's an actor, a well-known climate activist and a cradle robber. He's recently made a splash in the headlines for allegedly breaking up with his 25-year-old model girlfriend of four years due to her age and has been spotted mingling with Gigi Hadid, a rich kid, and famous model. Second, and likely the worst, is Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau — no explanation necessary. The third man accused of being the worst is singer and frontman for Maroon 5, Adam Levine. He is married with kids, with another on the way, and despite denying it, has been accused of cheating on his supermodel pregnant wife with an “Instagram model.” We hope it was worth it, Adam. Finally, everyone's favourite queer-baiting homewrecker, Harry Styles, makes the list due to allegedly breaking up his now-girlfriend Olivia Wilde's family while filming a movie and for keeping his sexuality ambiguous for attention.

In 1831, at the age of twenty-five, Alexis de Tocqueville made his fateful journey to America, where he observed the thrilling reality of a functioning democracy. From that moment onward, the French aristocrat would dedicate his life as a writer and politician to ending despotism in his country and bringing it into a new age. In this authoritative and groundbreaking biography, leading Tocqueville expert Olivier Zunz tells the story of a radical thinker who, uniquely charged by the events of his time, both in America and France, used the world as a laboratory for his political ideas. Placing Tocqueville's dedication to achieving a new kind of democracy at the center of his life and work, Zunz traces Tocqueville's evolution into a passionate student and practitioner of liberal politics across a trove of correspondence with intellectuals, politicians, constituents, family members, and friends. While taking seriously Tocqueville's attempts to apply the lessons of Democracy in America to French politics, Zunz shows that the United States, and not only France, remained central to Tocqueville's thought and actions throughout his life. In his final years, with France gripped by an authoritarian regime and America divided by slavery, Tocqueville feared that the democratic experiment might be failing. Yet his passion for democracy never weakened. Giving equal attention to the French and American sources of Tocqueville's unique blend of political philosophy and political action, The Man Who Understood Democracy: The Life of Alexis de Tocqueville (Princeton UP, 2022) offers the richest, most nuanced portrait yet of a man who, born between the worlds of aristocracy and democracy, fought tirelessly for the only system that he believed could provide both liberty and equality. Charles Coutinho, PH. D., Associate Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, received his doctorate from New York University. His area of specialization is 19th and 20th-century European, American diplomatic and political history. He has written for Chatham House's International Affairs, the Institute of Historical Research's Reviews in History and the University of Rouen's online periodical Cercles.

In 1831, at the age of twenty-five, Alexis de Tocqueville made his fateful journey to America, where he observed the thrilling reality of a functioning democracy. From that moment onward, the French aristocrat would dedicate his life as a writer and politician to ending despotism in his country and bringing it into a new age. In this authoritative and groundbreaking biography, leading Tocqueville expert Olivier Zunz tells the story of a radical thinker who, uniquely charged by the events of his time, both in America and France, used the world as a laboratory for his political ideas. Placing Tocqueville's dedication to achieving a new kind of democracy at the center of his life and work, Zunz traces Tocqueville's evolution into a passionate student and practitioner of liberal politics across a trove of correspondence with intellectuals, politicians, constituents, family members, and friends. While taking seriously Tocqueville's attempts to apply the lessons of Democracy in America to French politics, Zunz shows that the United States, and not only France, remained central to Tocqueville's thought and actions throughout his life.

In Episode No. 32 of Miss Understood, we discuss author Louise Perry and her sentiments regarding the sexual revolution and its impact on women, including our society's attempt to blur the lines of what is acceptable in sexual encounters and how that impacts the meaning of consent. Perry's debut book, The Case Against the Sexual Revolution: A New Guide to Sex in the 21st Century, was published earlier this year. We also debunk the claim that non-monogamy is the latest relationship trend to hit the United States and react to some of the ways people justify their polyamory. Kelly Clarkson also recently spoke about the pressure she felt to be sexual as a rising star. So, we address our society's obsession with oversexualizing women and some of its implications. Plus, female celebrities have been extremely annoying lately, which is why we decided to rank the worst four, pulling examples from Jennifer Lawrence, Olivia Wilde, Chrissy Teigen, and Kim Kardashian.

It has even reflected Germany's energy crisis, no longer lit to save electricity. But on Friday night it shone brightly once more: in red, white and blue as Germany mourns the death of Queen Elizabeth II.  This is much more than a gesture of condolence. 'Expressing our sympathy and our mourning by lighting the cymbol of our city and our country in the colours of the Union Jack to honour Queen Elizabeth II fully represents the sentiments of people in Berlin,' " said mayor Franziska Giffey.

What do you do when an Expired says that they're never moving out unless it's the right price? 1. Start the relationship. Connect with them through text. First, respond with a text message saying, “Understood” (with a thumbs up emoji). And then add, “What would be the right price?” If they text back with the price, you then reply, “Great. When would be a good time to jump on a quick call?  2. Get into a phone conversation. Over the phone, you can identify their motivation and start building rapport.  If they're motivated to move, go ahead and set the appointment. If they're not motivated, say, “Okay, great. Understood. If anything changes, let me know.” (The complete script is in The Book of YES. Get your FREE copy here.) NEXT: After getting off the phone, send them a quick video and say, “Hey, Mr. and Ms. Smith, thanks for taking time to talk to me today. I understand right now is not really the time you want to sell. So I just want to send you a quick video, personally introduce myself, and let you know if I can help with anything, I'm here to help you. And whenever things change, please let me know. We'll talk soon. Have a great day.” 3. Build the relationship. Touch base with them every month through a quick phone call or  text.
