What pressures do young people have to be attractive?
Why are older people generally considered unattractive?
Some say in the youth obsessed culture, only youth is attractive. There are so many stereotypes linked with attraction that we wanted to explore this at our first live Astute Conversations Live event.
On the 9th December 2014 we met some of you at City Hall in London for a night of entertainment, conversations and networking. The voice of young, older, minority women and men rang out through the Mayor’s offices as we discussed the pressures and perceptions about attraction. An especially interesting conversation started about young men dating older women. What is the big deal when they are consenting adults, right?
Listen to find out what happened during the Astute Conversations Live event and what people think about attraction.
