Wow, I don't even know

You don't need to say anything.
It happens.

Not to me, it doesn't.

Do you really have to go?

Well, it's been, like,
three hours,

and I'm--I'm kind of starving.

You wanna maybe grab
a bite to eat with me?

Nah, I don't have
much of an appetite.

You're spiraling.

Oh, I'm spiraling.

Well, you really don't have to.

A--an occasional
failure to launch

doesn't mean anything.

It happens to every man.

It has literally never happened
to me.

All right, listen, I know
that men of a certain age,

it's common for you guys
to define your manhood

in very narrow terms.

Yeah, in the terms
of their manhood.

But that--that is not
an evolved paradigm.

The more rigidly you view it,

the more pressure you put
on yourself.

If you could avoid using
words like "rigid,"

that might be helpful.


Masculinity doesn't have
to be performative.

It's much more expansive
than that.

It's about how you--
how you approach life.

It's about how
you perceive yourself.

And to tell you the truth,
this kind of stuff gets fixed

usually if you just
relax and do nothing.

So what are you?

Are you, like, a sex therapist?

I'm a professor of psychology

with a focus
on human sexuality.

Glad you didn't tell me that

That would have gotten
in my head.

(exhales sharply)

I'm sorry you're taking this
so hard.

Again, another word
you might wanna avoid.

Owen, I like you.
I do, okay?

I don't usually jump into bed
with a guy I met

at the beauty supply store
who I thought was gay.

And to be clear, I am not.

I really hope this isn't
the last time we meet.

Are you sure you don't wanna
grab a bite with me? I'm buying.

I think I gotta
take a rain check.
