A very rare moment in celebrity history has occurred - Stephen Colbert dropped his famously satirist persona for a few minutes. Why? To appear on Ask a Grown Man and dish out advice to young, teenage girls. The end result? Maybe Stephen Colbert should quit his job as a political satirist and become a guidance counselor at a high school somewhere.

Surprisingly, all of the questions asked were met with meaningful, and understanding, advice. If you can disagree or find fault with any of the advice Colbert gives out, you probably shouldn't be advising young girls.

"While he may not actually be close-minded about sex - after all, you exist, so he's fairly open minded about it," he reminds one young lady who wants to know why her father won't allow her to spend the night at her boyfriend's house, "But he may think that sex and a relationship aren't the same thing."

If you need advice on cat-calling, boyfriend troubles and figuring out if some guy actually likes you, here's the full clip of Colbert delivering the most helpful advice a 50-year-old celebrity can.
