WWMD Cast Talks Female Empowerment, What To Accept About Men + Sex Toys In Bed
If you could have any male celebrity on the show, who would it be and what would you ask him?
Chazeen: Idris Elba. I would want to know what type of women he’d want to date, from physical down to my profession. There are a lot of women out there who’d want to date an Idris Elba, so we’d have to know what an Idris Elba would want.
Guerdley: If I could have anybody, I would have this YouTube personality, Jerry LaVigne Jr. because he’s such a blatant chauvinist and he’s so well articulated with his arguments. I would just love to have him on the show to contest him and shut it down.
Tracy: This is a wet dream, but Kanye [West], man. Even if you agree with him, it always comes out as a debate.
Chazeen: I want to have a white man on the show, too. I would love to have Matthew McConaughey on the show; a single one. I don’t think anyone else cares, but I do. He’s very good looking!
Okay, ladies. Since you always dish it, you get the chance to take it! Here’s the Vixen Version of “60 Seconds of Heat.” First: Metrosexual man or man’s man?
Tracy: Neither. Half and Half. In touch with your feminine and masculine side. I hate a man’s man.
Guerdley: I need a man’s man. I need a guy who looks like he can chop down a tree. [Laughs]
Chazeen: Half and Half. I’d date both.
Guerdley: But you got to love your mother, that’s my thing.
Tracy: You can’t be in the bathroom longer than me!
Chazeen: Man’s man, but you need to take pride in the way you look.
Date a friend of a friend or a stranger? T, we already know how you feel…
Tracy: No strangers! Women, stop dating strangers especially in New York City! They can look good and be a serial killer, and if they’re not a serial killer, something else is bad. Friend of a friend, I need insurance.
Guerdley: I’m a serial stranger dater. I can’t help it. One thing I’ve found problematic with dating guys in the circle is I roll with so many pretty girls, so I don’t want you if you’re already pressing up against my friend.
Tracy: The great thing about dating strangers is that you probably get more dinner dates out of that. If I’m with a friend, there’s more casual stuff. With a stranger, there’s more to impress.
Chazeen: You may think I wouldn’t, but we’re in New York City. There are more opportunities to meet strangers, but I do a check before I go [on a date]. Google and all.
Sex toys in bed or just the two of you?
Tracy: With a girl? Why not? It’s almost obligatory. With a guy? I don’t want to emasculate my man where he’s supposed to be the most fulfilled. I will try anything twice, but I’m into singular love.
Guerdley: I don’t do any toys. I don’t believe it’s necessary because we built up to that point and this where I stand and this is where I believe the woman is the most powerful. I’m going to seduce you and show you the reason why all the things I requested up to this point was necessary.
Chazeen: Same thing here.
Sex within the first 3 months or the 3-month rule?
Guerdley: I got to know what’s going on. If we aren’t compatible sexually, I need to know immediately. Sooner than later!
Tracy: That’s pretty much the same deal with me. Sex is a very top priority for me when it comes to a lasting monogamous relationship. I need to know early on. If I wait more than three months, I’m probably not having sex with you. I’m probably breaking up with you. [Laughs]
Chazeen: My thing is special and you don’t get it until you earn it. I just feel like it’s best for me to wait to avoid that emotional attachment.
Follow and Friend him on Twitter and Facebook or “no way”?
Tracy: Follow him on Twitter. Everyone has a little stalker in them. It’s better to be on Twitter rather than Facebook because you don’t have to go to their actual page. You don’t have to as be proactive. Their updates are swarming down with a bunch of others, so you won’t see anything too crazy.
Guerdley: I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. I just have to make sure how I sound online.
Tracy: I think it’s important to see how your social persona is on online and in person because people react differently. It’s easy to have a completely different online persona. I don’t want to see how you are online because that might determine how I view you. Are you a cornball or an asshole? I know a lot of assholes who are punk-bitches online.
Chazeen: I use Facebook as another one of my background checks. [Laughs]
[Laughs] You three are WILD! I love it. Lastly, what do you want people to know and take from the show?
Chazeen: It’s hard to narrow it down to one thing. We just want to open up the eyes of women so that they can get a better understanding of men and the male mind. Hopefully they won’t just take it in, but they’ll put it into practice and give men a run for their money and develop successful and positive relationships.
Guerdley: I just want women to feel sexy. It’s important. When women have that confidence, we’re far more successful in our relationships. We’re not going to leave feeling relationship downtrodden; we’ll leave feeling like queens. That’s an effect I want to see happen from the show.
Tracy: A lot of the shows that speak about relationships for girls have black women steering that conversation and are usually for women who are in their thirties looking for that marriage material. We’re in our twenties, and that’s our core audience. It’s not a Single Ladies show or a reality show like Basketball Wives. I think it’s really important for women to feel empowered at younger ages. Don’t wait until you’re 35! Feel it when you’re 25. I haven’t found anyone that isn’t a singer that I can identify with at a high platform. I think that’s really the goal having our time slot.
Chazeen: A secondary mission is educating these men as well. People may ask, ‘Why so many women on the panel?’ We feel our thoughts need to be heard too–how we think. It can’t be a one-sided thing. Men need to understand our minds and why we ask these questions, and that’s important for our audience to know as well.
