Breaking News: Men Are Going To Bars And Talking About Feelings

Men Talk About Their Feelings At Bars

Apparently, we’ve totally misjudged what dudes do when they go to the bar. Watch sports? Sit in virtual silence with each other? Get shitcanned? Come home and vomit in the sink? Nope. Well, maybe sometimes. But in addition to that a new study done in Scotland found that men like to go the bar for more personal reasons. According to researchers men between the ages of  30  and 50 who regularly socialized at bars experienced positive boosts to their mental health. Not only did buying each other pints help middle-aged maintain their friendships, but researchers found that it also gave them a safe space to “open up and talk about their emotions.” Awwww shit. Busted, guys. Keep reading »

Ask A Married Guy: “Am I Destined To Be Kryptonite For Commitment?”

Ask A Married Guy: "Am I Destined To Be Kryptonite For Commitment?"

I am an attractive writer, divorced for almost four years. For as long as I can remember, I have never been at a loss for male attention. Since my separation, I have dated plenty of guys. But, the only guys I seem to attract who are not paralyzed by the idea of even commitment-lite are already married to someone else!

For my entire dating life, I have shied away from appearing needy, bitter, or desperate because those three qualities make my skin crawl. I have had a good number of great first dates where we seem to click on many levels. Yet, at some point, same guy will shift to texts and phone calls, evading a second or maybe third meet.

I am not ready to give up. I enjoy the company of men. And I do really want to be in a loving relationship with someone available. Especially since I had a 15 year marriage of convenience — for timing and “appropriateness” more than affection, sex, or love.

So, am I destined to be Kryptonite for commitment? Or can I change my game plan of appearing independent? – Beth

Beth, your email contains equal parts heartbreak and hope. In that order.

Commitment is the tragic ambition of all humans. We seek it constantly. We yearn for unconditional love. But when the wrong person asks it of US? Eww. Gross. Go away. Why the fuck do we do this to each other? Why do we take the risk of breaking our hearts, and those of others, over and over again, looking for this ineffable thing called commitment? Keep reading »

How Dateable Are The Guys From “That Awkward Moment”?

You know the type: single, smart, funny, cute … and totally terrified of even talking about getting serious. If you’ve ever heard yourself saying, “He’d be a good boyfriend but…” we’re on the same page.

Take Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan in the upcoming comedy “That Awkward Moment.” While their smooth pickup lines and rotating cast of bedmates would suggest otherwise, Jason, Daniel and Mikey are really big ol’ softies. Sound like any guys you’ve encountered in your dating travails? Thought so. Using these characters as examples, and assessing their pros and cons, let’s see how much boyfriend potential they really have. Keep reading »

‪Finally, You Can Buy Sexy Lingerie For Your Boyfriend‬

Men have been dabbling in women’s lingerie, well, forever, but, for the most part, not so openly. Now, an Australian lingerie company called HommeMystere is making it mainstream for men to wear the same kind of lacy bras and panties that women do. HommeMystere’s collection includes bras, thongs and teddies that are relatively affordable (about $70 for a bra and panty set), “comfortable’”and “great for all day wear.” You can watch a video of dudes modeling said lingerie on the runway if you’re looking to kill some time. Or, just because. Keep reading »

Alexander Skarsgard Poses Naked On A Toilet Upon Reaching The South Pole

Behold, Alexander Skarsgard sitting fully nude on a toilet in the middle of the South Pole in Antarctica. The Swedish actor stripped down to his birthday suit and pretended to take a pensive poop during his trek, this pic snapped by his Walking With The Wounded Challenge team guide. While I would never ever ever turn down a chance to gaze upon Alexander’s nude form, I’m concerned about the effect -30C temps could have on his penis. I don’t want frostbite to take the one remaining reason to watch “True Blood,” you know? [E! Online]

sex-last-longer

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?

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 »
