Last night, en route to the Palm Springs International Film Festival, Idris Elba tweeted this reference to his own hard manhood. Women swooned. And men everywhere were like, “I gotta wear bow ties more often.” [Twitter]
Making love with your special someone is as much about the journey as it is the destination. According to the Kinsey Report, a groundbreaking study of human sexuality conducted by Dr. Alfred Kinsey, the average male reaches orgasm within two minutes during sexual intercourse. Unfortunately, it takes the average female between 10 and 20 minutes to achieve orgasm. This is probably why women prefer fourplay and all that comes before the climax more than the climax, where as many men–live for that finale. So what do you do when he continues to take the freeway instead of the scenic route? Try these five tips from Hello Beautiful …
Dear Indian Trail Town Council Member David Waddell,
Actually, I guess I should say ex Indian Trail Town Council Member David Waddell, because you officially resigned from your position yesterday. I’m not in the habit of propositioning politicians, especially politicians who are resigning in order to stage a write-in campaign as a Constitution Party candidate, but it’s the way you resigned that caught my attention. See, you didn’t just submit a normal letter of resignation. You wrote your letter in Klingon as an “inside joke.” The mayor called it “unprofessional.” I call it brilliant. Keep reading »
It’s an interesting moment when you find both you and the man in your life staring intently at your boobs and realize that you are thinking two COMPLETELY different things. While you’re fixated on that errant nipple hair that keeps sprouting back, he’s thinking about how he wants to take you into the bedroom and put nipple clamps on you and see what happens.
A woman’s relationship with her tits is fundamentally complex — sure, it feels good to have her nipples licked, but she’s also constantly aware of how her breasts affect her self-esteem, how they compare to her favorite celebrity’s rack, how they behave when she goes jogging, what they’ll do if she ever gets pregnant, and that mean thing Kara Grossman said about her areolas in the locker room in 7th grade. To him, they are two sexy playthings, nothing more. This can create some hilarious contrast in each gender’s boob-related inner monologue. For example… Keep reading »

I’ve been dating this amazing guy for 10 months. Two months into our relationship, he told me he loved me and I realized I loved him back. Lately, things have started to change. He spends less time with me and stopped saying he loved me (the only exception is when he’s drunk).
When I finally asked him about it, he said that he likes me now (like, not love) but isn’t sure what the future holds. At this point, I cannot imagine doing anything but break up with him. However, he still wants to keep seeing me or take a break to sort his feelings out. When I prodded him further, he confessed that the driving factor in all this is his fear of commitment. Some days he says he wants to spend the rest of his life with me, other days he’s not so sure. He wants some time to sort out his feelings. The other item we discussed is that we don’t ever really talk about the deep stuff, that even though we’ve been dating for a while, we don’t actually know each other all that well. He thinks maybe if we continue seeing each other and getting to know each other better, his feelings may change.
I don’t know if I should cut my losses and end this relationship now. What’s the point of getting my hopes up again or wasting my time by continuing to see each other? What is wrong with him — if he doesn’t love me anymore, why can’t he just leave it be? – BC

Let’s continue our ongoing conversation about blowjobs, which will go on as long as there are willing mouths to suck penises. In other words, forever. Today’s topic: how men ask for some mouth-on-dick action without actually uttering the phrase “blowjob.” Why a man can’t just straight up ask for one? We’re not sure. Instead, most guys are cunning, using covert tactics, physical cues, and code words to try to get the fellatio they desire. And while men might think they’re being subtle announcing, “Honey, I’m erect,” we’re fully aware that they’re trying to urge us into BlowJobLand (and often, we’re happy to oblige). For the record, guys, there’s no need to make a cheese plate as a subliminal message urging us to orally indulge in your penis, but we do appreciate the gesture. Here are some other blowjob-hinting strategies we’ve been onto for years… Keep reading »
I’ve always been a big fan of beards on dudes, but as I’m typically attracted to dark-haired men, I’d never really considered whether I’m attracted to ginger beards or blonde beards. I’ve recently started binge-watching “Sons of Anarchy,” which has put me firmly on Team Blonde Beard thanks to Jax Teller. Now these photos of Prince Harry, playing some football on Christmas Eve Day, have me totally popping a girl boner for ginger beards as well. He looks so dashing and manly and ruddy and grrrrrr. LIKE. [Photos: Pacific Coast News/Splash News]
A few years ago, I mentored a group of teen girls at a small, alternative high school. The whole point of the group was just to give these young women a safe space to talk, express themselves, and feel heard and validated. I will never forget how eager the girls were to let their emotions out. I will also never forget all the boys that would linger around the doorway of our little classroom, making jokes and craning necks to get a peek at what was happening inside. They were so transparent, in that unique way that teenagers are, in their desire for the same thing — an opportunity to let their guards down and open up. Keep reading »
There are few things in life that make my chest seize and my stomach flutter with that inexplicable giddy feeling as much as Pearl Jam. My favorite band since I was 12 years old, I recently went to my 11th and 12th Pearl Jam shows, both of which were basically, like, profound spiritual experiences. The band has been around for over 20 years, fronted by the enigmatic Eddie Vedder, who turns 49 today. Oh, I’ll find a whole bunch of amazing GIFs of him. Maybe I can even find 49! I thought. And then an hour later, I had 91 GIFs sitting on my desktop. Oops. I managed to whittle them down to 57, but goddammit, I could not bring myself to discard another eight. So here you go. Fifty-seven Ed GIFs in honor of his 49th birthday. Keep reading »
