Are you a woman wondering what men think or a man seeking some female relationship advice? Read our collection of honest essays and advice on dating, relationships, and sex.

Dealbreaker: The Manorexic

There are so many things involved in attraction. From clothing to chemistry, a never-ending list of items can be turn-offs. But sometimes differences are a turn-on, from magnets to men, you know what they say: opposites attract. Still, some things are so repellent, they’re deal breakers.

I truly believe that the number one reason to get a boyfriend is to let yourself go. Not like “let yourself go” in a Britney kind of way – that’s scary – but let yourself go in a “let’s get a little fat together” kind of way. You get to do things in a couple that you don’t get to do when you’re single. Like get popcorn at the movies. Or spend an entire day drinking beer and eating buffalo wings any time between, I don’t know, September and January (football season). Good, wholesome, highly caloric activities that involve a lot of sitting. That’s high quality couple time.

It is with this mentality that I enter most relationships – which is why when I began dating a Manorexic, I quickly recognized the symptoms and got the eff out of there. My Manorexic — let’s call him Craig (as in Jenny) — seemed great. He was smart, handsome, gainfully employed, drank in moderation, and still had both balls – I was sold. Keep reading »

Slideshow: U.S. Open Hotties

One of the things I like about tennis is how quiet the arena gets when someone good is playing, so that you can hear every somewhat sexual grunt. That’s what I would be paying attention to if I was attending the U.S. Open, going on right now and through this weekend. After the jump, some of the hotties playing this year — a few of whom are already out — and their best stats for those of you who care about, you know, sporting and competition and stuff.

The Daily Hotness: Ryan Eggold

So, I totally HATED the new 90210. [Sigh. We can't agree on everything! -- Editor] Ugh, don’t get me started on the stupid script that just seemed like a combo of every teen genre hit from High School Musical to Gossip Girl. But even sadder than the lighting on Shannen Doherty is the fact that this makes Tori Spelling the smart one for quitting this train wreck. But alas, there’s a light at the end of that dark, dark two hour season premiere special, and that shining star is Ryan Eggold. The West Bev High English teach is sexy, clever, and actually making his lines believable — all that and puppy dog blue eyes makes me hot for teacher! Unlike the totally disposable plot, I can’t get this studly smartypants out of my head. Good news for me (and my best friend Megs), he might be 24 in real life, but he likes the older ladies. When he’s done with Kelly in a couple episodes, we’ll be waiting to fight over him. For now, we hope the producers find a reason to get him to take off his shirt. Keep reading »

Questionable Guy Trend: The Manscaped Eyebrow

Manscaping isn’t just a trend, it’s a bare necessity. While women have been waxing and plucking their eyebrows for ages, gentlemen are finally catching on and it’s become an eye-opening phenomenon. Salons and barbershops across the country are reporting record numbers of guys getting their brows waxed, tweezed, shaped, and shaved. Even Sephora is offering special products to de-unibrow dudes and even enhance their arch — like Gaultier’s $18 Monsieur Groomer gel. But is too much of a good thing, like manscaping, not a good thing at all? Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: What Would You Do With A Vag For A Day?

Dang, “What Would You Do With A D–k For A Day?” really was a hot topic huh? Thanks for stopping by gentlemen and cluing us into some fun we might have missed. But the thing really weighing on my mind? Do guys ever consider what they would do with a vagina for a day? I suspected that A) they would either be too uncreative to have actually considered it or B) only considered the sexual aspects, and after discussing the topic with a few of the guys on my IM, guess what? I was right! Keep reading »

The Weekend Hotness: Johnny Depp, Rock Star

Before Johnny Depp was an Oscar-nominated actor and honorary Frenchie, he was in a band called The Kids. He reunited with the band last night at a benefit concert and totally rocks a sweaty t-shirt with the best of them. Keep reading »

The Daily Hotness: Bryan Greenberg

I totally did a double-take when I saw Bryan Greenberg in the Obama/Will.I.Am “Yes, We Can” video (watch it, after the jump). While I may have missed him originally on One Tree Hill and October Road, he fully caught my attention as Uma Thurman’s way-younger beau in Prime. And he was so effing adorable trying to impress her that he impressed me into full celebrity crush mode. Look for him in the upcoming Bride Wars, also starring Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway, the shooting of which has captured by the paparazzi and been in every tabloid for the last few months. Just wish they had caught a few shots of Bryan…

The Daily Hotness: Jay Bakker

The only boy who could ever teach me, was the son of a preacher man! And I’m a Jew. But let’s face it, Tammy Faye Bakker’s baby is a full grown hottie. From the sleeve tats to the soulful talk, I couldn’t get enough of Jay on his Sundance channel reality TV show. And now the punky pastor has turned model in the new Kenneth Cole campaign. He’s so hip for being square! Who knew the Bible would make such a stylish accessory? [World of Wonder] Keep reading »

5 Reasons We Love…Simon Rich

  1. He published his first book, Ant Farm, while still in college. And it was actually funny. So funny that we’re not jealous of him (even though he got a book deal when he was 22).
  2. He became a writer for Saturday Night Live right after graduating from Harvard in 2007 and still we’re not envious.
  3. He’s one of three finalists for the 2008 Thurber Prize for American Humor, our country’s “highest recognition of the art of humor writing,” according to the award’s website.
  4. He looks young for his age, and so do we. It’s hard being in your 20s and being mistaken for a 16 year old. Simon, we feel for ya.
  5. We laughed out loud on the subway while reading his new collection of hilarious made-up conversations, like this one, which takes place between two frogs who have just figured out where all of their friends and relatives go: middle school science classes to be dissected. The book, titled Free-Range Chickens, comes out today.

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Do You Require Domestic Skills In A Partner?

Watching Mad Men has made me slightly nostalgic (well as “nostalgic” as I can be for an era in which I wasn’t even a zygote) for the days when people drank at 9am (at work too!), men wore suits every day, and women rocked brooches and perfectly coiffed up-do’s. But it also has made me think about traditional gender roles, particularly the role of the woman in the home — cooking, cleaning, attending to the social calendar, and raising the children. Now that women are largely active and succeeding in the work force, “women’s work” has become something that a lot of women don’t want to do, have to do, or know how to do. While I love to cook and cleaning is my OCD vice, I can’t sew to save my life and wouldn’t know what to do when it came to making a table centerpiece. Catherine can’t cook and doesn’t have an interest in learning — but because so many of our mothers still fit these roles when we were growing up, do modern men still expect their future wives to nurture in the same way, despite having careers outside the home? In a nutshell, will Catherine’s future hubby be letdown when she tells him, “Sorry mister, I am not going to learn how to cook your mother’s famous tuna casserole”? I decided to ask the guys on my IM whether they still expect modern women to be “domestically skilled”. Keep reading »
