Ho, Ho, Ho: Unwrap This Package From Santa

I kind of want a boyfriend for a lot of reasons — like regular sex, foot rubs, companionship, someone to vacation with, etc. But I really, really want a boyfriend because then I could buy him these boxers and make him wear them year-round. Am I alone in thinking they’re funny yet totally sexy? Oh, Santa baby, indeed. [$18, Toddland] Keep reading »

Dudes! Just Say No To “Manx”

These are not hot superheroes; these are men modeling the new line of Spanx for men (lovingly referred to by me as “Manx”) that are now for sale the U.K. The undershirts and briefs promise to firm and flatten beer bellies and love handles and kill girl boners faster than a speeding bullet. Nothing is un-sexier than a man in a girdle. Nothing. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Blast Boxers: For The Guy Who Is Really Protective Of His Privates

We understand that guys hold their private parts in the greatest of esteem (hence the term “family jewels”), but perhaps some men might be a bit too overprotective of their junk. Which is probably why Blast Boxers exist. Originally developed for men in the military, the underwear features a special high-strength material that acts as penis armor should an explosion go off in the vicinity of his crotch. Assuming he doesn’t work for the Army or in a factory that manufactures firecrackers, the Blast Boxers man must have one exciting social life (or one incredibly weird phobia).

30 Manly Things We Love

Holy crap, we’re in the middle of a crisis, y’all! Manliness is under attack! According to way too many articles to count in the last few months, men have turned into big, fat, commitment-phobic pansy asses. In an essay (via Jezebel) featured in an upcoming book about conservatism, Proud to be Right, Katherine Miller writes:

America’s elite has a problem. It’s skinny jeans and scarves, it’s Bama bangs and pants with tiny, tiny embroidered lobsters, it’s Michael Cera, it’s guys who compliment a girl’s dress by brand, it’s guys who don’t know who bats fourth for the Yankees. Between the hipsters and the fratstars, American intellectual men under the age of twenty-five have lost track of acting like Men — and these are our future leaders. We have no John Wayne, no Clint Eastwood. And girls? Girls hate it.

Look, I’m not going to argue with the fact that I’ve been disappointed by many of the men I’ve dated over the last few years, who seemed to lack backbone, common courtesy, and resourcefulness, three attributes, by the way, that I like seeing in other women as well. But this idea that dudes wearing scarves is a sign that manliness has gone the way of the dinosaurs? I don’t buy it. After the jump, 30 manly things I love that, as far as I can tell, haven’t gone anywhere. Keep reading »

Mind Of Man: Regular Men Don’t Wear Skinny Jeans

I can’t wear skinny jeans, because I have beefy man legs, mighty logs of muscle and sinew, the end product of hundreds of thousands of years of evolution. Ancient man spent his days running from prehistoric beasts, jumping with simian fury and squatting around the fire. Here’s a short list of the men who can wear skinny jeans: Iggy Pop, The Pumpkin King, moody beanpoles with eating disorders and those with unusually narrow pelvises. If you own and wear a cape or a top hat, you can wear skinny jeans. If you need skin-tight pants that hug your hips, then do as Batman does and wear tights. Regular men should not wear skinny jeans.

Things In His House That Make Me Sad: His Neglected Backyard Patio

Welcome to “Things In His House That Make Me Sad,” a regular series from the blog Shmitten Kitten that we’ll be featuring on The Frisky, about the stuff seen in so many guys’ apartments that just make you shake your head and sigh.

There are several things in his house that I want nothing to do with. I’d rather kiss a cockroach then step foot in his musty basement. I’d rather eat a bowl of scabs than smell the inside of his microwave. But, what really sends chills down my spine is stepping foot outside onto his neglected backyard patio. Keep reading »

Things In His House That Make Me Sad: His Lone, Off-Brand Cotton Swab

Welcome to “Things In His House That Make Me Sad,” a regular series from the blog Shmitten Kitten that we’ll be featuring on The Frisky, about the stuff seen in so many guys’ apartments that just make you shake your head and sigh.

When I asked him for a Q-tip, he said, “Sorry, babe. I don’t have any.” Frankly, a bathroom without Q-tips is a bathroom I don’t wanna be in. I have needs that can only be met with a firm stick with cotton tightly wound on both sides. I have eyeliner to correct. I have mascara smeared under my eyebrow I have to wipe away. I have an itch in my ear THAT NEEDS TO BE SCRATCHED. Keep reading »

Padded Underwear Gives Men A Bigger Bulge

They’ve already created a Spanx-like tummy-tucker undershirt for men, and now Marks & Spencer, the British version of Target, is introducing “bum lift” underpants, that claim to lift men’s bootays by about a fifth, and “frontal enhancement” underwear that uses an “integral shelf,” to give men what the company describes as a “38 percent visual enhancement in size.” Dave Binns, head of M&S men’s underwear, said: “Our technologists have worked hard to engineer two styles that are comfortable to wear and that give real results. These pants provide a real confidence boost for men and we think they will prove popular with our customers.”

“Handsome Guy Mask” Is The Stuff Of Nightmares


There are a few occasions, I suppose, when I might be inclined to wear a “handsome guy mask”: 1.) when I just want to run errands and don’t want to be tailed by the paparazzi; 2) when walking my dog down an ex’s street; and 3) when I want to know what it’s like having women throw themselves at me because I am just that attractive. Unfortunately for the latter, I’d probably go with some other company’s “handsome guy mask,” because SPFX’s version is scaring the crap out of me. [The Gloss] Keep reading »

Awful Library Books For Men And Boys

History can be hilarious! Consider words with meanings that have changed over time (remember when “gay” meant happy, like “Grandmother is so gay”?), sexist advertisements that could elicit modern-day lawsuits and library books that now seem grossly inappropriate.

As luck would have it, Michigan librarians Holly Hibner and Mary Kelly discovered that the latter yields an especially large amount of laugh-worthy material. So much, in fact, that it’s become a personal hobby for them to weed out amusing/borderline-obscene books to post on their website, Awful Library Books. Keep reading »
