Parvathy Omanakuttan
What do you like most about men?
It is really admirable that men respect women. That shows how grounded men are.

What do you like least?
A condescending attitude—especially when they look at women as objects of sexual gratification.

Which country has the hottest men?
A fair amount of Indians are attractive.

Daniel Craig or Hugh Grant?
Hugh Grant—he’s got a certain innocence about him that I find appealing.

What's a good approach for a girl like you?
Men should treat girls like me as independent and confident and should be willing to go Dutch on a date.

How should a girl approach a guy she likes at the office?
I have more male friends and I think men are more gung-ho about asking women out.

What should men have learnt about women by now?
Men still complain that they don’t understand women. So, there’s a long way for men to go to understand that we’re all built differently and no common parameters can work in understanding us.

Where do you stand on pre-marital sex?
It’s very subjective—and I can’t sit here and decide whether pre-marital is right or wrong. Each to his own.

What constitutes a healthy sex life?
I am not experienced to answer this question!

When is an affair permissible?
I think age and certain amount of mutual feeling are parameters. But like dating, I can’t prescribe when or why a relationship is okay.
