When it comes to saying “I love you,” one writer reports, men are universally conflicted. If asked how many times they’ve been in love, some men can’t make up their minds. He loves you? He loves you not? Sometimes, he’s not too sure. After all, it’s not easy for either sex to differentiate between love and lust, intimacy and infatuation, what the mind wants to believe and what the heart insists is true. When Mick Jagger was asked how many times he’d fallen in love, he deemed the question “stupid.” Boy George, in contrast, said his number was zero. So, how can men and women tell if they’re really, truly in love? When “the words ‘I love you’ tumble from you like obscenities from the mouth of a Tourette’s sufferer.” Sounds like true love to me.

Some of you might have heard of or read Neil Strauss’ The Game, a fawning book about a silver tongued Casanova who goes by the mysterious code-name Mystery. Probably many more of you have seen ridiculously dressed beanpole Mystery tutor his homoerotic boy-cult on Vh1′s reality show “The Pick-Up Artist.” Is it just me or does he look like cross between a Las Vegas magician and a Dr. Seuss character? What you don’t know is if you know a guy who’s signed up for a class in picking up women (like New York’s “The Art of Charm”) or sloppily employed the social tools taught in these classes, written about in books, or demonstrated on television shows.

Dan Humphrey has got a dirty side — well, thanks to pervy photog Terry Richardson, he does. In a shoot for the latest issue of GQ, the nice guy next door gets a lil’ naughty with some tennis balls, a leather jacket, and a bottle of champagne. Penn Bagdley is so sexy, he could pop our cork anytime! (Especially if that resembles his O face.) We loved the spread of him and co-stars Ed Westick and Chace Crawford in Out Magazine earlier this year. But after seeing these hot shots of the well-styled star in country club wear, Mr. Humphrey has got us saying, “Chuck Bass, who?” Although, “Gossip Girl”’s Lonely Boy told the men’s mag he’s looking for a bigger challenge. Hm, perhaps we could find a way to give him a handful… [World Of Wonder] Keep reading »
There’s a commonly held belief that men are always thinking about sex. Always. I actually think women think about sex almost as often, though not necessarily in the same ways. But another accepted belief is that dudes would have sex all the time, if given the choice — I wasn’t sure if that was true, so I decided to needle the guys on my IM about these two topics — how often they’d like to do it and how often they’re thinking about doing it. While I wasn’t entirely surprised by their answers, I was fascinated. Find out why, after the jump… Keep reading »

A Note On Playing It Safe: The Frisky thinks safe sex is smart sex – so please practice it in the way that’s right for your relationship.
So, NPR posted a story saying that condom-less sex is the new engagement ring, because going bareback shows the same or similar kind of intimacy and trust and commitment that traditional marriage does. I see their point, though the man-friend and I dropped the connies well before we got engaged — but only when we’d agreed to be monogamous and had done the all important STD-tests etc. Over at fellow lady blog Jezebel, outgoing Features Editor Moe says about sex without a condom:
“…here is the irrefutable: it feels awesome. Maybe that is because I have only really engaged in bareback sex with the types of dudes who don’t fear HPV and whose diseases I don’t particularly fear, because the worst thing I can think of about most of them is the ensuing lifetime of awkward conversations…”
In other words, sex with condoms sucks, the worst that could happen to me if I go without condoms with a dude is maybe I could get pregnant or get HPV or “diseases I don’t particularly fear” and of having those diseases, the worst part is having awkward conversations with future sex partners. There is so much that is ridiculous about that statement, but I’m not in the business of ripping people apart for their personal sexual choices.

It’s an exciting week! We’ve got not one but two new additions to the “Guys On Our IM” roster (including one of our boys at AskMen.com), each desperate to wow your lady skulls with their revelations on the male psyche, sex drive, and beating heart. This week, I broke ‘em in hard, asking them to confess how they really feel when they aren’t able to make a sexual partner climax. Depressed? Suicidal? Meh? Sadistically happy? Find out, after the jump! Keep reading »
