Transcription

  • Dax Shepard says, he's very good at giving relationship and love
  • advice.
  • You know, I call it like I see it.
  • OK.
  • So I've come to think of myself as pretty astute.
  • And you've helped people.
  • One or two.
  • OK.
  • Yeah.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • Out of how many?
  • Dozens.
  • OK.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • OK.
  • All right.
  • Well, we have some people that need--
  • Selma Coat.
  • Where's Selma?
  • All right.
  • Hi.
  • Hi, Selma.
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • All right.
  • Hi.
  • Hi, Selma.
  • Hi.
  • My question is, what is a way of keeping things interesting
  • in the bedroom after being together for a long time?
  • How long is a long time?
  • Over 10 years.
  • [INAUDIBLE]
  • Over 10 years.
  • Like, how many over?
  • Huh?
  • How many-- how long have you been together?
  • Three years.
  • Three years, OK.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • This is a little concerning, yeah.
  • So she's thinking of the future already.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • Yeah, yeah, yeah.
  • She's just a planner.
  • First of all, let me just say that, I applaud you
  • for bringing this topic up because I
  • do believe that the single hardest thing people
  • talk about in a relationship is sex because it triggers
  • our very scariest worst fears--
  • or at least it does mine-- that you would maybe not
  • be enough for your partner.
  • So I would start by asking yourself,
  • what would make things fun for you in the bedroom?
  • And then I think I would introduce that
  • to your partner--
  • and this is key--
  • in a way that's not like, hey, I'd
  • like to do whips and chains--
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • --because if I'm your boyfriend I go, OK, A, she's
  • already done whips and chains.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • I don't know how to do whips and chains,
  • and I'm going to let her down big-time.
  • I'm now in a spiral panic about how
  • I'm going to underwhelm you.
  • So it's really important that you
  • go, I read the weirdest thing that people
  • are into whips and chains.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • Right?
  • This isn't something you're obsessing about.
  • This just came out.
  • Did you hear of these people?
  • And then, you kind of open it up that way.
  • For me, that's what I would prefer.
  • It could be a fun thing you could stumble through together.
  • Thank you.
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • I like that.
  • That's a good idea.
  • Yeah.
  • Could you give me an out of 10 on each of these?
  • Out of 10?
  • Because you were really nervous about my advice.
  • Yeah, I that's a 10 out of 10.
  • Oh, wow.
  • I think, first of all, yes, you should start with whatever--
  • think about yourself.
  • Like, when you're saying, keep things interesting,
  • you're talking about yourself.
  • Obviously, you're the bored one.
  • You're asking the question.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • So think about what you want.
  • And then, I love that.
  • That's just like, hey, you know, this is weird.
  • I read this.
  • DeMargio House.
  • DeMargio House.
  • [CHEERING]
  • How are you doing, guys?
  • Hi.
  • So my question is, what dinner date night
  • meal constitutes for sex?
  • Mhm.
  • Really good guy question.
  • He probably lost you.
  • Did he lose you?
  • Yeah, I didn't know food was a lead-in to like--
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • --like, if you're having a certain food that
  • makes you want to have sex.
  • Now, when we're in the locker room--
  • not the one that the president's in--
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • --but when we're in the locker room,
  • it's kind of well known that if you want to get lucky,
  • you've got to take your lady to dinner
  • and really pour it on a bit, right?
  • What I would say to you is, the dinner
  • is pretty much immaterial, the restaurant.
  • What really has to happen is you've got to ask your lady
  • some questions.
  • You've got to be interested in her.
  • Not like, how is your day, and then, that's a wrap on that.
  • It's like, you need to deep dive.
  • I don't think it's about the restaurant or the meal.
  • I think it's about your attention,
  • your interests in her.
  • Because I think what we all fear is that we're boring
  • and that the whole thing's stagnant.
  • So I think the more you let her know, like, I'm still
  • very interested in you, I don't think I know everything
  • about you, I think you're going to be going to boom boom town.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • Thank you.
  • Boom boom.
  • So Arby's.
  • All right.
  • Joana Taurasi.
  • Where's Joana?
  • Hi, Joana.
  • Oh.
  • All right.
  • Uh-huh.
  • This is a--
  • I think it's going to be spicy.
  • This is a good question, yeah.
  • Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
  • Yeah.
  • My question for you is, I'm wondering
  • how you feel about having sex while your children have
  • friends sleeping over for the night.
  • [OOHING]
  • Parent to parent question.
  • Yeah.
  • I got you.
  • All right.
  • I guess, for me, this is more a question
  • of what is the noise level.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • Are you lighting fireworks during coitus?
  • Are there cymbals involved?
  • The rooms are really close.
  • Does your lover have a drum set?
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • Out of 10, 10's a freight train, 0 is call 911,
  • he's unconscious--
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • --where are you at on the noise spectrum?
  • Where are you at on the noise spectrum?
  • 6, 7.
  • Oh, jeez Louise.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • No, absolutely not.
  • I'll tell you why.
  • It all sounds good when you're thinking about yourself.
  • But then when I imagine my daughter is at your house,
  • and she has to hear your accountant husband [BLEEP]----
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • --and you're-- and she's nervous you might be getting assaulted
  • because you're at a 7, that's a good experience for your child,
  • but not mine.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • Oh, my god.
  • 11?
  • Right, right, right.
  • For sure.
  • That's 11.
  • OK.
  • This needs to be a regular segment on the show.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • I'll do it.
  • Because-- you're doing it.
  • Yes!
  • Right?
  • You're doing a service.
  • Should I dress people for a living?
  • I like that.
  • Please also take his advice with the grain of salt
  • that I'm wearing mechanics' overalls.
  • Uh-huh.
  • Right.
  • [LAUGHTER]
