Battle of the Sexes, Round Two

 Parenting Issues

The panel is split on how to handle two contentious child-rearing issues:

Breastfeeding in Public

The Best Way to Handle Crying Babies

Round II of the Battle of the Sexes is underway!

Returning to the ring are comedians Sinbad, Frank Nicotero and comedy duo Frances Callier and Angela V. Shelton, better known as Frangela; relationship coach and self-proclaimed bad boy, Steve Santagati; women's rights attorney Lisa Bloom; and sexual health expert Dr. Jennifer Berman joins The Doctors to contribute the medical point of view.

Big Breasts
Are men obsessed with big breasts?"If you get big, gigantic, fake breasts, it's going to attract a certain kind of man," Lisa Bloom says. "The question is: is that the man you want?"

"You say that you want us to like you for your inside, but you're just as superficial as we are, because you like broad shoulders, you like a strong man, you like tall [men]," Steve says. "You're not going to go out with Mini-Me."

Like any surgery, breast augmentation carries risks, and The Doctors agree that if a woman chooses to get implants, it must be for herself, not anyone else. Are women conforming to an idealized sense of beauty if they get breast implants? Are there valid reasons for breast augmentation? The panel discusses when, why and if women should get breast implants.

"Have we lost sight of diversity in beauty?" Lisa Bloom asks. "Do we all have to look like Barbie dolls?"

A recent show in which reality star Heidi Montag's 10 elective cosmetic procedures were discussed, explored what happens when women get plastic surgery for the wrong reasons.

Who's Better in Bed?

Who makes a better lover, a man or a woman? Steve, author of The Manual: A True Bad Boy Explains How Men Think, Date, and Mate - and What Women Can Do to Come Out on Top, says that most people think they're better in bed than they really are.
"Women, in general, are better lovers to start with than men," he says. "They go slower, they pay attention, they're more tactile, and they're not in such a rush."

When he counsels men, Steve explains that it's important for them to mirror their partner's touch and feel. "If you mirror that, you're doing exactly what she wants. And girls love a balance of a little rough and a little slow."

The panel agrees that the key to good sexual performance and satisfaction comes down to communication and paying attention to both your and your partner's needs.

Do men really need sex?

What You Should Know about the Opposite Sex

The panel shares the one thing that the opposite sex should know about their gender:

Frank: "We understand PMS. We now know that it's real, we know it's a real thing. We just need -- for those four or five days -- to put the argument down and walk away. And, we love video games!"

Steve: "I think what a lot of women don't understand is that when we meet a great girl that we're really in to, we go home and pace back and forth thinking, ‘I hope I don't like her more than she likes me.'"


Sinbad: "I think women should realize that we want this thing to work. We're men, we're not Neanderthals. We want this relationship to work just as much. We might not talk like you talk, but if you tell a man exactly what you want, if you tell a man how you feel, then let him answer it in a way he answers it instead of the way you want him to answer. You can get together; you can be good friends. And, don't fight with the [football] game. The game's coming in, Monday night."

Lisa Bloom: "I think women are easy. All you have to do is worship us like the fabulous creatures we are. That's all you've got to do!"

Frangela: "Men don't know that we actually are a little freakier than you may think. Go ahead and propose a little game playing. Coach and cheerleader, supreme court justice and paralegal -- we can role play a little bit!"

Pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears: "Guys, well, we sometimes like to cuddle!"

Plastic surgeon Dr. Drew Ordon: "As a plastic surgeon, it's not all about big boobs. Honestly, we find a woman sexy if she's happy and confident with what God gave her."

Dr. Travis: "For women out there, don't buy into a guy's false bravado. If he's trying so hard to be cool and overly confident, chances are, deep down, he's really insecure, and what he wants is you to be there as a partner for him. A truly confident man is going to take care of his woman. He doesn't have to show it every single day to everyone else, he'll show it to you."


Dr. Berman and OB/GYN Dr. Lisa Masterson agree: "Every woman is different; you have to connect with her. Women feel like having sex with you when they feel connected."

"If you want to get into our pants, then pamper, love, adore -- be connected and intimate," Dr. Berman adds. "That's the way."

"Back to the age-old thing: If Momma's happy, everybody's happy," Sinbad says.
