For all of us who have ever enjoyed the work of a good push-up bra, the next sentence probably won’t be a huge shock. Guys want in on the action. But it’s not our cleavages they’re most interested in. It’s they’re own packages they’re dying to enhance. Capitalizing on the effects of the Wonderbra, designer Roland Lodoli has created push-up boxer briefs designed to “make the most of modest manhoods,” and, he says, they’ve been flying off the shelves at his shop in Zagreb, Croatia. All of which leads one to wonder: Are Croatian “manhoods” particularly modest? Lodoli says he’s working on push-up swimwear now, so men never have to feel ashamed at the beach again — “no matter how cold the water.” If a man can really wear a push-up bikini brief without feeling the least bit ashamed, more power to him, I guess.

Is your dude a lily-white, hair-free geek — and you’d rather he more closely resemble the guido next door? Don’t worry, girlfriend. The man bib will turn your guy from a dud to a stud! Created as part of an Australian ad campaign for Solo soda, the dude dickey gives the impression its wearer is tanner than George Hamilton and built like the Terminator. Apparently, Solo isn’t the first one to come out with an idea that puts hair on a man’s chest. Walter Van Beirendonck’s hairshirt gives its wearer that all over hirsute look. Of course, there are limitations to trying to put hair where it’s not. When you get home, and he takes off his dude bib or fursuit, you’re left with the guy you got. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
It’s getting hot out there! And I mean more than the temp. All across this great land of ours, men are starting to strip down and show off their hot bods. It’s not quite beach weather yet, but if you know where to go, you can find some shirtless guy shrines to worship. Here are our seven favorite haunts for hunks. Keep reading »
Esquire.com has an interesting essay by Tom Chiarella: “What Is A Man?” A sample:
A man can cook eggs. A man can always find something good to watch on television. A man can speak to dogs. A man doesn’t point out that he did the dishes. A man knows how to lose an afternoon. Drinking, playing Grand Theft Auto, driving aimlessly, shooting pool. A man does not wither at the thought of dancing. But it is generally to be avoided.
Being a fan of well-written, funny generalizations, I wasn’t offended by the list, nor did it strike me as particularly sexist. Although, many of the “manly” attributes apply as easily to women. Many are qualities I love in any person. The anti-thesis of “What Is A Man?”, it seems to me, is “What Is A Boy?” Check my list out after the jump.

Hugh “Wolverine” Jackman is putting on quite the show with the Royal Marines Commando Display Team! But the actor is actually about to scale the wall of The Sun newspaper in London, not film a pivotal scene in a gay porn. [London, 4/16/09] Keep reading »
“From checking out Playboy I always thought — jeezum, we still don’t have a better word for it than vagina, do we? — I thought it was behind the pubic hair, and it faced horizontal. You know, east/west, not south. So the first time I got to third base, man, I was hunting for a long time.”

It’s STD Awareness Month! We’ve been talking a lot about the icky stuff you can get while bumping uglies, while Dr. V has urged you to have as much fun as you want, so long as you wear a condom. In the past, we’ve talked to the guys on our IM about how often they actually use condoms, but we’ve never grilled them about how often they get tested for STDs. And what I really wanted to know was how often they were actually honest when a potential sex partner asked them that question. Let’s find out… Keep reading »
Fine, I’ll level with you. After all, we’ve been through so much together. You’re like foreign exchange students to me. Not unlike sisters. But I wouldn’t feel gross if I “accidentally” walked in on you while you showered. TMI?
Chances are the reason he hasn’t called you back is because he doesn’t want to talk to you. Maybe he can’t talk to you. Maybe he’s fighting pirates, composing an opera, shampooing orphaned kittens.
If he hasn’t called you back, don’t hemorrhage. Don’t instant message your bestie to bitch and moan. I’ve observed many of you in the wild; bitching and moaning begats more bitching and moaning. A dude not calling you back will snowball into ridiculousness. The simplest, most reasonable answer is the right one. His phone could have been turned off, his grandmother could have died, he could have been hit by a truck and has amnesia. Simple, right? Keep reading »
