5 Menswear Blogs You Should Know About Right Now

Beyond the glossy magazines lies a vast blogosphere dedicated to helping men dress better. And like most areas of cyberspace, much of it is a mishmash of uninspiring dribble inserted into a sea of second-rate snapshots. But it’s not all bad news. A new crop of trend spotters is rising from the internet’s ashes to challenge well-established blog brands like The Sartorialist and A Continuous Lean (which, if you haven’t heard of them, are most definitely worth checking out). These are the up-and-comers that are worth a couple of clicks. Read more at Ask Men…

How Not To Fall For The Next Fitness Fad

In the fitness and weight-loss industry, serpent lubrication sells like hotcakes. It’s capitalism run amok, and it is not helping. Billions of dollars are at stake to perpetuate the myth of “quick and easy” when it comes to building muscle and/or dropping fat from your frame. If you believe in quick-fix miracle cures for getting in shape, you’re not alone. In 2011, the Federal Trade Commission launched a massive survey of consumer fraud in the U.S. and found people were more likely to be taken in by a weight-loss scam than any other type of fraud. It’s not all “bank inspectors” and pyramid schemes; fraudsters scammed millions of Americans wanting to lose weight by selling pills, powders, machines, wraps, creams and even “weight-loss earrings.”

Are people who believe such things stupid? Not necessarily. Read more at Ask Men…

The Top 10 Greatest Female Adult Entertainers Of All Time

The adult-entertainment industry has always been the black sheep of the American economic family. Less respectable than big oil and Hollywood, it’s been no less successful, with annual sales estimates ranging from $2 to $12 billion per year. And, unlike oil and tech companies, and very much like Hollywood, the porn industry has produced some extremely recognizable, er, faces.

As Twitter has made assessing celebrity popularity much more easily quantifiable, the embarrassing truth is out: Many porn stars have more followers than professional athletes. Hell, many professional athletes are following porn stars on Twitter. And with every new film or television show starring or featuring a porn star, the barrier between mainstream and adult entertainment grows weaker and weaker. Read more at Ask Men…

The Best Duos For Overcoming Life’s Most Difficult Situations

Imagine a world with peanut butter but no jelly. Fred with no Barney. A world without duos would be a lonely one, because nobody likes to go through life’s most challenging, harrowing and intimidating obstacles all by themselves. That’s why pop culture is brimming with dynamic duos — both real and imagined. Whether it be in the thunderous confines of an arena, the skies of a make-believe world, or in the break room of an office in Scranton, Pennsylvania, we’ve long been captivated by two people who find common ground and work together to achieve wonders.

In the new movie “2 Guns,” Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington play battling spies who must set aside their differences, become a team and kick some major ass if they have any hopes of staying alive. Her are 10 more duos who have teamed up to overcome life’s most difficult situations. Read more at Ask Men…

Just because it worked for you back then doesn’t mean it’s still going to work for you now. Something happens between the early 20s to the early 30s that requires a man to change his approach to meeting women. Some guys age accordingly — it’s an effortless transition from keg-stands with the guys to standup paddle-boarding with your lovely new wife. But for most of us, there are some bumps in the road. It’s not always obvious which of your habits will make you into a social pariah as you get older. Until now — no more guessing required. Here are 27 things guaranteed to get you laid at 25 and rejected at 35. Read more on Ask Men…

6 Reasons Women Assume You’re Gay

Back in the days when men were “men” and Rock Hudson was a paragon of heterosexuality, life was simpler for straight guys. Today, with gender roles in a state of flux and traditional ideas about masculinity turned upside-down, things are a lot more confusing, especially for women.

Do girls keep slotting you into the “friend” category, despite your best efforts to attract them? Maybe you’re giving them the wrong idea. We asked a random selection of women and gay columnist Richard Burnett to give us some straight answers. Here are six reasons why women might assume you’re gay.

1.You’re homophobic. This one should be obvious. When a guy goes out of his way to make disparaging remarks about gay people, one can’t help but wonder what he’s so worried about. Homophobia also expresses itself in other, more subtle ways, like “harmless” jokes or obsessions with the sexuality of people around you. As Burnett puts it: “Most straight people just aren’t all that concerned with whether or not someone is gay. Gays are mostly invisible to completely straight men.” Read more on Ask Men…

Dating With Tinder: What It’s Really Like To Date With Hookup Apps

I joined Tinder last month at the insistence of my friends. Before I downloaded the app, I had no clue what it was, but listening to my buddies raving about it, you’d think it was the second coming of Facebook.

For guys who love looking at pictures of girls in bikinis and frivolously casting a split-second judgment on them (guys like me, I mean), it came pretty close to being the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Well, for a week or so anyway. Read more …

The 10 Food Trends That Are Everywhere Right Now

Thankfully, many of the food trends I feared at the beginning of 2012 have not come to pass. However, even in eight months, there have been some very noticeable developments in both the food we are served in restaurants and the way we cook at home. Some of them are welcome and some less far less so, but it won’t be long before everyone is jumping aboard the latest food fads of 2012. Read more…

5 Techniques For Increasing The Size Of Your Manhood

Blue Balls
Here's what you need to know about blue balls, ladies. Read More »

Over the course of working on my novel, Shrinkage, I did a lot of research into penis enlargement practices. My novel is a work of fiction, but some of the real-life stuff I dug up is stranger than anything I could have come up with. Let’s get serious and focus on all the actual ways that you can increase the size of your manhood. But wait, are there really any?

Pills: Products with names like ExtenZe, ErectZan and the somehow recently knighted-sounding Sir Maximus round out the hundreds of offerings in this category. Read more …

7 Realities Of Shacking Up

Moving in with your girlfriend is a huge deal. In life-change terms, it’s a bigger transition than getting married. Though you don’t get the recognition from your family and friends that comes with tying the knot, you’re going through a huge day-to-day shift when you move in with a woman.

We’re all for cohabitation before marriage, and there are plenty of reasons why shacking up with your girlfriend is a great idea. You create a home together. You develop an ad hoc cuisine that is native to only the two of you. (You’ll know something special has happened when you walk into the kitchen and she’s making that cottage-cheese-and-pickles mix you’ve been dipping Triscuits into since you were seven — and she’s making it for herself.) Read more…
