When you're in your early 20s and moving in with your boyfriend for the first time, you're both just starting to build your lives. In many ways it's a lot easier, a lot less risky, than moving in with someone when you're in your 30s and starting to settle yourself down independently.
The perplexed interviewer asked what every man wanted to know, "But what about the man's sexual needs? Isn't he going to walk away with 'blue-balls'?"
