Handling Valentine’s Day With A Not-So-Serious Boyfriend

Valentine’s Day is the holiday of love (or crass commercialism, depending on whom you talk to). However, things can get a little bit awkward when Feb. 14 rolls around and you’ve been dating someone very casually. There’s a lot of pressure on V-Day to bring a relationship to the next level, but sometimes you’re just not ready for that.

Of course, you could fake your own death. However, you might not have access to a boat and enough dynamite to get the job done correctly. In these rare situations, you’ve got to do what you can to tone down the date itself, in order to avoid any awkwardness. Here are a few tips to help you out. Keep reading »

1. Johnny Castle in “Dirty Dancing”

Probably one of the most beloved movies of all time for women everywhere, “Dirty Dancing” follows Patrick Swayze as he somehow turns dancing into sex and has the time of his life, which he owes all to you. I’ll be the first person to defend the awesome manliness of Patrick Swayze, but honestly he’s the only straight man in our time who can pull off tights while looking cool. Ask most guys to dance you to the end of love, and they’ll just nervously eye the door and make up something about a back injury.

The one-night stand is a great American tradition in which two people have awkward sex that both will regret immediately. Most people have had one or two one-night stands, and they’re certainly a unique experience — almost a rite of passage.

Like all rites of passages, one-night stands are shameful, awkward, and huge causes for celebration. Here’s a look at what men are thinking during and after a single night of passion. Keep reading »

What Men Think About During Sex

Men do a lot of thinking before sex. Mainly, they think about how to get sex, what to eat in order to have the proper energy for sex, and how to have better sex. Our thinking during sex is much less complex.

During passionate sex, the conscious mind of a man is pretty much obsessed with feeling everything that’s happening, and enjoying the act as much as possible. However, there’s a sort of half-conscious, half-subconscious mind that kicks in, and its main function is to worry about performance.

Our big concern between the sheets is whether on not you’re getting off, because men consider the female orgasm the sort of gold medal of the sexual Olympics. Keep reading »

The 4 Things Men Hate About Sex

Guys love sex. It’s hardwired into our brains. I’m not saying that women don’t love sex, by the way–everybody loves sex. It’s sex. It’s awesome. It seems like a biological miracle sometimes.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that everybody loves everything about sex. Here’s a look at four things that men don’t actually love about time spent between the sheets.

Take It From Him: Relationship Anniversaries Are A Stupid Idea

Guys often forget relationship anniversaries, according to every bad comedian’s jokes since about 1965, and various magazines and TV shows since then. It can seem inconsiderate on the surface, and men get a lot of heat for not taking relationship anniversaries seriously. We’ve got a pretty good excuse to cover for our mistakes: we don’t care, because anniversaries are stupid.

We care that you’re mad at us, of course, and when we’ve done something disappointing or let you down, that’s certainly bad. We don’t want to do that. It’s just that the concept of relationship anniversaries seems really unnecessary. Keep reading »
