This Sunday, the Broadway revival of the sexy ‘60s musical “Hair” is up for eight Tony Awards. You know they must be doing everything right! So, we decided to ask the hottest hippie in the show, young stud Theo Stockman, all about free love, pubic hair, and what it was like to shove his crotch in the face of “American Idol’s” Adam Lambert.

An HPV vaccine for men is likely to be approved in the next year, but according to a recent study, men are fairly unlikely to get the shot, even if told it would help protect their female partners against cervical cancer. Sadly, we’re not surprised. Many men won’t sport a rubber to protect themselves and their ladies (yes I know I’m generalizing here), why would we expect them to get poked by a needle?

Clear is the new black according to fashion designer Kei Kagami, who just debuted this “water dress” at the Arnhem Biennale. The exhibit has taken over the center of Arnhem (in the Netherlands) for a month to display works by dozens of fashion labels including Lanvin, Hussein Chalayan, Jil Sander, Rick Owens, Martin Margiela and Viktor & Rolf. The theme of the exhibition is “shape,” which Kagami chose to interpret by using an amorphous material, water, to create a dress form. Splashing! [A Shaded View on Fashion] Keep reading »

On Sunday, my sister is getting hitched. Lizz is the exact opposite of a bridezilla, but because she’s a professional event planner, she sent me an amazingly precise document laying out exactly what time everything will be going down on the big day. So I know that at exactly 3:45 p.m., it’s time for me to give a toast.
I’m very excited about giving the toast. Public speaking doesn’t phase me much, and I kind of like the rush that comes with lots of people staring at you, hanging on to your every word. I want my toast to be semi-brilliant. I want people to laugh, I want people to cry. The thing is—I’m not exactly sure what to say. I have lots of ideas swirling about, I just haven’t settled on the right one. And so, I consulted Tom Haibeck, who wrote the book Wedding Toasts Made Easy. Here are his five tips for creating the perfect toast. Keep reading »
OK, we know the following characterization is NOT 100 percent representative of all fraternities in this country.
But still, the stats about sexual assault and tales of misogynistic behavior in the essay, “Bros Before Hos,” published by history and gender studies professor Nicholas L. Syrett on the National Sexuality Resource Center’s web site, are beyond scary.
You’ll have to read the essay yourself for his particularly eloquent argument about how the closeness of men in frats fosters misogynistic behavior and a fear of homosexuality—it’s worth a read for anyone who has known or loved a frat boy. Synett’s certainly not arguing frat boys are worse than other men, but they do live in a unique environment that has an affect on them. Frat boys don’t sound like they’ve ever not had a weird relationship with sex, masculinity and power.
Six scary things we learned about frat boys from reading his essay, after the jump…

Wedding season is upon us. And I don’t just mean that wonderful time between March and September when thousands of men and women dress up, say “I do,” and watch as friends and family get pleasantly drunk on the couple’s tab. No, I mean that four to seven year period during your 20s and 30s when destination weddings become proxies for summer vacations, and where a church service doesn’t seem complete without a big kiss and some wild applause to wrap things up. Since most guys don’t dream of their big day from the time we’re 8 years old, this big day baffles us a bit. But, by following this handy-dandy program, every dude can successfully navigate perils of the season. Begin the regimen, after the jump. Keep reading »
Modern men (some of ‘em) are embracing their feminine side as modern women (some of ‘em) are becoming more masculine. (Pretty soon we’ll start going to the doctor before an injury is life-threatening.) As this Yin-Yang convergence occurs, interest in his looks, clothing and grooming is surging. Nowadays nearly a one-hundredth* of the shelf space for personal care items in pharmacies is now dedicated to men. Things like shave butter, hair “product” and David Beckham have colored how [some] men now comport themselves. Keep reading »
