In a buzzy blog published on HuffPost Divorce earlier this week, single mom Emma Johnson admitted that she prefers dating alpha males -- and men who are agressive in bed.

"When you are an independent woman with lots of responsibilities, many men assume that we want to carry out that strong role all the time. But I need to feel like a woman, and times I enjoy that most are when I am with a man," Johnson wrote. "If I am being honest with myself, being a woman means -- to a degree -- being passive. And that requires a man who is -- to a degree -- the alpha."

Johnson talked more about her dating preferences on HuffPost Live Thursday, and noted that many woman are afraid to admit that they want an alpha male.

"We feel so afraid to acknowledge that we have this inherent need to be with manly men. We fear that we're going to give up some of our power," she said. "I like to be with agressive men, alpha men who are strong in this world and strong with me one on one, but that doesn't mean I want to give up my right to vote or that I choose to earn less than a man in the workplace. "
