Blogging sensation Emily Hartridge is back with another irreverent installment of her video blog, and this week she is extolling the merits of the younger man.
Not too young, you understand, just young enough to make a woman feel in control, have bags of energy in the bedroom and not die too soon leaving her old and alone.
Emily's modern agony aunt-style advice has earned her a cult youtube following and a global audience of up to 70,000.

Video blogger Emily Hartridge explains why you should date a younger man in this week's film
The brunette likes to offer advice on love and life in ten succinct reasons, and previous topics have included the reasons why men cheat, the reasons why women cheat and the reasons why she wishes she was a lesbian.
Emily's latest offbeat ramblings are an ode to toyboys, shot as usual on a webcam in her scruffy London bedroom.
She says: 'I think a lot of women feel like they should date someone older than them because they are more experienced, they know more, they have more money … but you know what, there is something in this younger man thing.'
In the vieo her toy boy is seen desperate to impress her and also larking about with whoopee cushions
With a little help from her own handsome
younger man, Will, who is filmed waiting on her hand and foot and calling her
'monkey' the journalist lists her top reasons to cradle snatch which
include getting to wear the pants in the relationship ('Who doesn't
want a boyfriend that tries to impress you all the time'), spending
more time in her own flat and the fact that he will take better care of
himself ('I'm not afraid to admit it, I like a six pack.').
28-year-old Emily completes the 7
minute clip with some of her favourite readers comments and outtakes from the week,
before pondering: 'Just how young is too young'
