Working with Patti is always an adventure. People often ask me, "Is Patti really like that or is that just an act for TV?" The answer is she is really like that. Even I wasn’t sure last year on Season 1, but when I talked to her on the phone after filming was done, she was still as abrasive as ever.
This year instead of her trying change me I thought Patti made a better effort to find me what I wanted. However, the results were not much better! The date was somewhat fun and Joanna was cute, but she was not for me.
The most common question I get from people who see my episode is why I have a stripper pole in my living room. I installed the pole because I think it is fun, a great work out, and I wanted to learn how to do moves myself! (No, I am not gay.) At my parties, no one ever starts taking clothes off when they dance on the pole. They just have fun dancing. Thus, when people say I need to get rid of the pole, all I hear is "get rid of fun." Needless to say, I don’t agree. Patti argues that girls will see the pole, think I am in love with strippers, and then not like me, but my feeling is that if any girl is that shallow, she is not for me anyways. Believe it or not, most people who meet me and see the pole love it and think it adds to my life and personality. And yes, my parents have seen it, swung on it, and think it's great too.
Dave, you are missing a couple of wings from your bucket of chicken, dude. Joanna is hotter than twelve miles of pavement in Macon Georgia in the summertime. Her body is banging, her face is pretty and she's got a naughty side. She was perfect for you, man..
She had to be the most attractive, sexy woman I've seen on this show and you said she wasn't the one? You are the guy with the stripper pole and the nickname "Sex Toy Dave", right? Dude..
Talk about false advertising. Turn in you player card immediately because you are a disgrace to the game.
Yeah, you need Patti's help. You also need to move to San Diego, cause the "air" in LA has sho 'nuff fried your brain.
But maybe I need to move to LA so I can find a hottie like Joanna. Bravo needs to give that lady her own show.
Every episode shows Patty to be very jealous of attractive smart women. She also seems to have it in for women who are not jewish. However, she is right about you. You were the class nerd who is still trying to get the cool girl. When you get her you don't know what to do. You need to see a therapist to get you past that persona.
I think you were right when you said the stripper pole adds to your personality, because without it, you are just an average guy. You really did find the right woman in Joanna for your lifestyle, for 'Sextoy Dave' who wants badly to live Hugh Hefner's life. She would be perfect at the parties, and would probably be okay with women hitting on you, and would hit on a few herself. But not for you, Dave, the simple guy who outside of the stripper pole in his living room has no conversation, and no real way to hold a woman's attention. If you don't come to terms with who you are you will never find the right woman. The woman you need is a robot with two settings-Joanna and Joan Cleaver. What you want is someone to adore you when you're not 'sextoy Dave', but without him who are you?

'sex-fun' is for the bedrooms...get this poll out of your house...period...Do not confuse yourself and potential woman that may start looking insode you instead of the poll to know what you are all about...
Dave, I admire you for not falling for Joanna. For some reason, she feels all she has to offer a man is her body and sex. Who acts and talks like that on a first date, only a slut. How many men have she done this with. I think she is beautiful on the outside but is immature and shallow on the inside. Kudos to you. There's a fun, happy, successful, sexy woman out there for you. Go find her.
Answer to some of the above blogs: 3/20 3:20 viewer said that having a family and a stripper pole is a contradiction. A pole is fun and great excercise and does not inherently hurt children. I have many young relatives visit my house and we take funny pictures on the pole with the kids.
Tiffani: Unfortunately the creative editing made it look like Joanna's only wild side was her sexuality. Actually she is from a broken home, left home at 16, and unemployed at the time of the show. She was looking for a guy to date who would hire her. We had nothing to talk about. As far as what is there without Sextoy Dave . . . mostly just your normal healthy happy nice guy who works, works out, and enjoys a mellow night with the girl I am dating.
3/20 10:30AM viewer said when I get a hot girl I don't know what to do with her. Again it is so frustrating that they made Joanna look like the girl I am looking for. She is far from it. If you think I can't handle hot girls, check out the pics from my party last night. Find links to my myspace and facebook from SextoyDave.com. (Pics will go up 1/23)
Bryan - i appreciate your enthusiasm and if it was me 5 years ago, i would have been on Joanna like white on rice. But these days I have threesomes with girls hotter than her more than even I can believe. Also, this show was not about me finding a hot party girl. I was supposed to be on a Patti date where I look for a real relationship.
Feniks - I have a virtual replica of my house in the virtual world called Second Life.
Viewer - I have to comment on your spelling

Sorry lady or guy your spelling was so bad I had to correct it. Your English teacher should have been fired.
What happened with Shauna? Why didn't she go out with those two guys? It's also odd she hasn't blogged like the other season 2 millionaires. Sounds like another falling out with Patti?
I watched this episode on the edge of my chair. I couldn't believe Patti found someone like Jhoanna for Dave. But, in typical male fashion, give a man what he shouts from the rooftops is his heart's desire and suddenly that's not what he wants anymore. I think this date was a real eye-opener for Dave, in that he needs to more carefully balance his fantasies with his day to day needs from a woman.
Best of luck, Dave... you'll get it before some of the others will.
I'm compelled to write because Joanna was just delightful and seemed to be your peerfect match. Were you not attracted to her because she was Asian? I could definately see her as your wife and the mother of your children if you had been brave enough to introduce her to your parents and friends. Joanna should host a BravoTV show of her own; she was so photogenic and fun.
Joanna is smokin hot there is no doubt. She is the hottest thing I have seen on any of these " reality " shows. She just doesnt have any class. None. She acts more like a hooker than a girlfriend or a wife. Who would want to have her as a wife with a mouth like that. I think Patti & the producers found her to heat up the show which is dull at times. She didnt follow any of Pattis rules. They just found this little hottie to get the ratings up. Dave was just intimidated by Joanna.
That show seemed so fake. If you truly were such a player. you would have known how to handle a woman like her. You obviously don't know what you want, nor what to do with women when you aren't in a group party setting with your player friends. Seems like you were just brought back on the show to create drama. That girl looked so faek and overly aggressive and they made you look like a deer in headlights.
I agree with James, Joanna is super hot! If you're afraid to pull the trigger on that I'd be happy to take her off your hands. I just need to find a million dollars ..but I'm only 6 numbers away!
Johanna's a little cutey. Sexy,playful with a sense of humor it was hilarious watching her make Dave squirm. Anyone with contact info on her hit me back,i think im in love lol.
How Damn fun to see Johanna! An old friend from the Spy Shop Days... classy, cute and bright..... Aloha Johanna!
Patti - Best 2 bachelors yet. I love your show. As a single mom of 4 (!) from California (now in Kentucky, and I'm actually a "millionairess" too, but no time for dating nor energy) so I think I enjoy your show and talents on many levels. You are wonderful.
Matt was so charming and a great diamond in the rough...Maya was neat. Jimmy D looks like a young Travolta but sure wasn't digging the Scientologist, as the real John Travolta might (but she was so stupid - cut him some slack!). Don't give up on those two men. They are worthy of your good efforts.
Great episode... although Shauna was a nut!! She acted like a mean little pit bull. I especially "liked" how she constantly criticized the looks of others! What was with her nostrils and crazy eyes?! Good luck finding with your shallow search for a mate!
In respsonse to your comment, Dave-
I know that. You are just normal. That is sad to see that they edited the episode that way. But the most important point is that you scale your expectations down. Just close you eyes and take your business, success, and sextoy Dave out of the equation when meeting someone. When the smoke cleared, you would meet a person who was at least a 7 on all scales (looks, intelligence, personality, emotional stability, financial stability) that would love you to death. Anyone else would be plotting the biggest marry-for money scheme in history. I'm telling you the way I tell any one of my 9 brothers: Pay attention to the women you date. Any woman that would date you solely on the fact that you are successful is a gold-digger. That should be the icing on the cake. But you've got to be the flour-the base- in that cake. There has got to be something in your personality or the way that you make her feel that makes a woman want to add her sugar, butter, and eggs. Your money will only hold her attention for so long.
I love the fact that you have the stripper pole, as much as people do ask why I have to agree not only does it add personality to you but also to the house, its cute! Not only is it fun for the parties, but even with a relationship, it can be fun and you always have to spice things up.
Dave - I can't imagine who comes to your house and is impressed/excited by the stripper pole. it is tacky and gross and sends the WRONG message. I do think it is funny that you describe your perfect girl, Patty finds her, and then you think she is too aggressive! Please! Be real and honest with yourself.
Divorce rate 2005- 3.6% Divorce rate 07-08- 0.7% or 3.5 divorces per 1000 people. Peak divorce rate in U.S. 5.3% in 1981
Your philosophical reasoning is a bit askew.
Dave, my mother made me watch the show. I have no problem with your strip pole because I have one in my bedroom! I am successful, single and live in an uptight wealthy neighborhood. It's fun like you say! I really have it for my own purposes and the occasional aunt comes over and takes a spin...there is nothing raunchy about it whatsoever. What is more appalling is how people are so afraid of exploring their sexuality. I'm not talking the multi partner thing like you mentioned on the show, but about people in general. You know how many women were offended I would even want to learn how to use it? How sad...I make money all day long using my masculine side in my business, it would be a travesty had I never learned to embrace my feminine side as well. So kudos to you for sticking your foot down and keeping it! And, totally agree with you on the divorce rate comment. If a man's wife is taking spins on the pole, maybe he wouldn't go out looking for a little something something elsewhere... :-)
Hey dave my question is what brand of jeans were you wearing when joanna came over to your home? I really like the way you dress. I would like my husband to dress like you. Hopefully you can help me out. What are the different brands that you wear.
I think both your episodes have been hilarious... too bad you're halfway across the country because girls from the midwest can be both the wild party girl and the girl you can take home to mom. (And yes, I'm one of those... hahaha)
I watched the show for the first time yesterday and it happened to be the episode that you were on.
Okay...Joanna, although completely beautiful, was a bit over the top; however, in Patti's defense, that was exactly what you wanted. (Or at least what you said that you wanted.)
Judging by what I saw....you want an open minded woman who is willing to accept what you do for a living, but seriously do you really want a swinger as a wife??!! If you are truly serious about finding a woman who is smart, kind, loving, and who will make a good wife and mother - you need to change your standards of what makes the perfect woman for you.
Kudos for you for not hooking up with Joanna. Stick with Patti's advice and I am sure that you will find that perfect someone.
And remember, you want someone who you can take home to your mother without being embarrassed. (She doesn't have to be Jewish, but seriously she has to possess a little more class rather than so eager to show off her @ss.)
Best of Luck!
DAVE,DAVE,DAVE . whats the problem man i wish i was a millinaire cus i would love for patti to set me up with joanna..... patti love ur show you need more of joanna!!!!!!!!!!
someone pointed out the divorce rate is like 3%. But that is the number of people who are divorced. That is falling because less people get married or more people live together without getting married. The statistic Dave is referring to is the marriage breakup rate -- which includes relationships that end in divorce or separation -- is between 40% and 45%, according to AP.
Dave, I just watched the show where you went out with Brooke. I think that you had a right asking her to go with you to that party. I have been to sex toy parties before and even hosted one once with my friend. They arent that bad, well they can be. :) I honestly think the stripper pole is great dont ever get rid of it. I totally get that you want a girl that you are able to have fun with and also have a relationship with. I have a lot of guy friends like that. I know I am like that but for some reason I am never get to find a fun guy, I always get boring guys.
I don't see any issue with a pole. It's not like you walk into a guy's pad and he has graphic porno spilling all over all over his bathroom or coffee table. It's a pole.
No offence Patti, but what generation are you from? Young women are very open these days about sexuality. Many of them take pole dancing classes to stay in shape. (it's fashionable) I doubt something this innocuous would turn off anyone under 30 save the biggest prudes. It's a pole!
