Is it okay for a woman to have sex on the first date? An age old dating and relationships question with an answer that is almost always contingent upon the individual’s personal beliefs and convictions. Lala Anthony, who recently penned relationships book, The Love Playbook: Rules for Love, Sex and Happiness, took a stab at the question during an interview with Access Hollywood.
“The number one rule I did put out is to make them wait a little bit just because they will respect you more and appreciate you more. If you give it all up in the beginning, then what do they have to look forward to?”
She went on to say that although she doesn’t recommend first date sex, in the event that things go there, all hope for the relationship may not be lost.
“I think it can work. I wouldn’t say it’s a good idea; you probably shouldn’t do it, but things happen,” she added.
During the interview Lala also cleared up rumors that the book is a tell-all about her relationship with hubby Carmelo Anthony.
“I’ve always been that girl that all of my friends come to for advice about relationships, about dating, about life. So I figured put it into a fun book, but it’s not a tell-all about my marriage to ‘Melo.’”
“’Melo is so supportive of everything I’m doing. I do talk about my relationship and marriage to ‘Melo in reference to advice and things. I want to be honest, but…it’s not that kind of book. It’s a fun book for women to just get advice to learn about love, happiness and sex.”
