2.12: Be Careful What You Wish For, Lest it be Tula (Discussion)

I look back at the story from last week, Be Careful What You Wish For, Lest it be Tula, and discuss what was learned from it. I cover a lot of topics in this episode; and I think there are a lot of great highlights for men as well as women. 

The broader concepts I talk about are race and interracial dating, how anxiety brings us to find excuses for our behavior, how we sometimes ignore certain facts about our lives simply because they don't seem fair, and how Tula and I both fell short in pursuing the relationship. I definitely recommend checking out this episode because I hit on a lot of great insights. 

At the top of the show, I talk about the recent announcement made by Playboy about how it will be no longer publishing nude photos. It seems like a huge change for one of the most well known brands in the world, although it may just be a sign of the times. I discuss the current state of the porn industry, how it is changing, and what it could ultimately mean for us as a culture.
