PAUL, 32, TV PRODUCER What do girls think guys think about? Sex. What do guys really think about? Sex. Boy bands or girl groups: what’s your guilty listening pleasure? Boy bands. Maybe I’m just more into cute boys. What’s the most absurd gender stereotype? Females are bad drivers. If you were a woman for a day, what would you do? I’d probably play as many guys as I could and get free drinks by flirting.

boy talk/girl talk KUMBIE, 26, BARRISTA What do girls think guys think about? Sex, drugs and hanging out with the boys. What do guys really think about? Money, dreams and ambitions. Boy bands or girl groups: what’s your guilty listening pleasure? Girl groups. I already know enough about boys. What’s the most absurd gender stereotype? Women are more lenient than men. Women are actually very impatient. If you were a woman for a day, what would you do? Show the men in my life how much I appreciate them, and encourage other women to believe in 50/50 equality. The rest is too personal!

Boy bands or girl groups: what’s your guilty listening pleasure? Girl groups. They’re better to look at. What’s the most absurd gender stereotype? Men do jobs better than women do.

KATE, 22, NANNY What do guys think girls think about? Materialistic things and men. What do girls really think about? Men. Boy bands or girl groups: what’s your guilty listening pleasure? Boy bands. I just prefer them. What’s the most absurd gender stereotype? I’m from New York, so definitely the Jersey Boy stereotype. Not all men are macho types. If you were a man for a day, what would you do? I’d want to see what sex is like.


OLIVIA, 31, STAY-AT-HOME MOM What do guys think girls think about? Shopping. What do girls really think about? Everything! Boy bands or girl groups: what’s your guilty listening pleasure? Boy bands. You can still imagine those teenage crushes. And you can’t beat Take That. What’s the most absurd gender stereotype? Women won’t get stuck into a job, or be sporty. If you were a man for a day, what would you do? Go to a stag do – just to gather intelligence!

PAUL, 41, IT CONSULTANT What do girls think guys think about? Girls question why guys are into them. What do guys really think about? In those cases, the guy is probably just thinking: ‘Wow, you’re beautiful’. Boy bands or girl groups: what’s your guilty listening pleasure? I’m more of a John Mayer fan. You know, real music. What’s the most absurd gender stereotype? Barbie. Women are much more complex. You can’t get that in a doll. If you were a woman for a day, what would you do? Go to the spa or beach and get my boyfriend to mow the lawn.

JAN, 27, TRAVELLER What do girls think guys think about? Sex. What do guys really think about? Football. Boy bands or girl groups: what’s your guilty listening pleasure? Neither. I’m not into that kind of music. What’s the most absurd gender stereotype? Women like shopping. If you were a woman for a day, what would you do? Go clubbing and get drinks bought for me.

SARAH, 5 (35 IN DOG YEARS), MAN’S BEST FRIEND What do guys think girls think about? It’s a bit difficult to say. I’m a big girl and guys are often intimidated by my size, so probably aren’t thinking about my brain. What do girls really think about? Food. Boy bands or girl groups: what’s your guilty listening pleasure? Snoop Dogg. What’s the most absurd gender stereotype? Girls should be dainty, and that all girls are bitches (although I’ll admit that I am). If you were a male dog for a day, what would you do? Dig even bigger holes in the beach. JOSIE, 29, MUSICIAN What do guys think girls think about? Feeding the cat. What do girls really think about? Sound checks and money. Boy bands or girl groups: what’s your guilty listening pleasure? Girl groups. Most boy bands are really cheesy. What’s the most absurd gender stereotype? I don’t know, but guys that act like girls are so strange to me. If you were a man for a day, what would you do? Go skateboarding and walk around topless.

SHAWN, 35, BANKING OPERATIONS MANAGER AND OCCASIONAL HITMAN What do girls think guys think about? Sex. What do guys really think about? A lot of stuff – but I’m a cyclist, so I mostly think about bikes and girls. Boy bands or girl groups: what’s your guilty listening pleasure? Girl groups. Boy bands are dumb. What’s the most absurd gender stereotype? Girls are slower than guys on bikes. If you were a woman for a day, what would you do? Prove I can cycle faster than guys. I would cause pandemonium and tease them.

CINDY, 32, IT CONSULTANT What do guys think girls think about? Fashion and gossip. What do girls really think about? ‘What am I going to wear today?’ Boy bands or girl groups: what’s your guilty listening pleasure? I’m not a fan of either. I prefer rock music. What’s the most absurd gender stereotype? All guys are brute cavemen. If you were a man for a day, what would you do? Go hang out with the guys and find out what they really think about. MARILYN, OLDER THAN 21, BANKER What do guys think girls think about? I have no idea. I do not understand men at all. What do girls really think about? We worry. We are complex creatures, trying to find the balance between work and family. Boy bands or girl groups: what’s your guilty listening pleasure? I love jazz, so neither. What’s the most absurd gender stereotype? Girls are stupid. We’re really not! If you were a man for a day, what would you do? Life is so easy for men. I’d probably get a promotion…
