Episode Description

“Why can’t you grow up?” You’ve probably screamed these words at your boyfriend, son or brother if he’s a 20- or 30-something who refuses to move out of Mom and Dad’s house, refuses to put down the video-game controller and refuses to do anything that resembles responsibility, ambition or commitment. He may part of a new generation of “adultolescents” who resemble the Matthew McConaughey character in “Failure to Launch.” Guest Kay Hymowitz, author of Manning Up, takes the position that the rise of feminism is to blame for this decline in traditional manhood. Robert Weiss, who counsels celebrities on their porn and additions, explores healthy male sexuality at every age, and Barb Bartlein, author of Why Did I Marry You Anyway, introduces us to the “Wendy Syndrome” that entraps the women who love these irresponsible men. We’ll also hear how one of these “slacker” 20-somethings justifies his choices.
