Guys

Men are proud of their sexual exploits. That’s why we brag about them like idiots. However, during the actual act, some guys are much more uptight than they let on–sometimes uptight enough that they fail to really enjoy the experience.

Here’s a look at some common reasons for male self-consciousness during sex, and what… READ MORE »


Guys

My female friends (both of them) have asked me in the past whether guys are as prone to kissing and telling as women. It’s a tough question, because I don’t know how often women talk about men they’ve become romantically involved with (though my guess would be “constantly”) or what level of detail you use.

Guys

Many women aren’t aware that just as there are emotional stages of acceptance of death, there are emotional stages of acceptance of sex. When men lose their virginity, they experience a remarkably similar set of emotions.

Here’s a look at the various stages that men go through when losing their virginity, drawing on my… READ MORE »


Guys

I’ve lived with several women, and I don’t blame them for moving out as soon as they became aware of my idiosyncrasies. I don’t even blame them for leaving their cats behind, as long as they don’t blame me for giving the cats away (by opening my kitchen door and yelling at them).

Guys

Men are not the masters of the subtle. We’re the sex that laughs at farts and watches Jean-Claude Van Damme movies, and we wouldn’t know subtlety if it hit us over the head with a brick (which it probably wouldn’t do, since, you know, it’s subtlety and all).

As such, many of us have… READ MORE »


Guys

Men look at sex the way dogs look at bacon: The object is to get as much as possible in any form or by any means before our inevitable deaths.

Some of the more inventive people in our society have come up with a variety of sex acts intended to improve the pleasure of… READ MORE »


Guys

Sex is really not that complicated, and many attempts from so-called “sexperts” to “spice it up” with a variety of positions end up making things overly complex. Now, men are in no position (pun intended) to complain, and there really aren’t any sex positions that we won’t appreciate. It’s like going to the Super Bowl:… READ MORE »


Guys

Many men have some very disturbed ideas about sex and biology. For instance, a good friend of mine spent years believing that girls pee out their butts; he thought this until he was age 21. He was a certified EMT.

The subtler sex myths, though, may be the most damaging ones. They can… READ MORE »


Guys

Men can be remarkably thin-skinned. Sometimes even a compliment will send us reeling. We think things through too much (which might not ring true with what you think of guys, but stay with me here). Even the nicest thing can be misconstrued as an attack on our manhood and genitalia, which are inextricably linked, and… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

Most guys look at Cosmopolitan magazine the same way that women tend to look at Maxim — as a ridiculous, over-the-top, hyperbole-filled look at sex that has no bearing on actual real-life relationships.

Yet, men still read Maxim (or look at it and grunt), and women still revel in Cosmo’s softcore porn-filled pages. READ MORE »


Guys

Women do a lot of silly things to try to impress men; I know this, because men do a lot of ridiculous things to impress women, too. It’s like the circle of life, only it ends with quiet sobbing into a pillow.

The elements of sexual attraction aren’t too complex. Though, even accepted societal… READ MORE »
