You know what you ought to do before you turn 30 (1, 2, 3, 4), but what do you do afterward? Believe it or not, life doesn’t magically come into focus the second that you’re no longer 20-something. Creating the life you want in your 30′s takes work. To make the transition into your new decade as smooth as possible, here are a few tips for navigating those first 30 days. Keep reading »
While my Dolly Parton-esque double D’s provide my sexy-time friends with far, far more than a handful, my breasts prevent me from normal activities. Like crossing my heart to say the Pledge of Allegiance. Like squeezing between tables at restaurants without whacking someone in the face. Like wearing button-up shirts and running at the same time. Still, are my bodacious ta-ta’s any more intrusive than, say, the pair men have — that is: balls? I mean, how do they run with those things dangling between their legs? There’s just no denying it. Ladies and gents have bulky body baggage. Thankfully, some gender-bending reporters over at Time Out New York decided to put their work-out routine to the boobs versus balls test. Their results? Frank and beans are easier to exercise with than a couple of milk jugs. But here at the Frisky, let’s talk about when appendages really matter: the sex act. Which cushion do you think is worse for the pushin’? [Boinkology] Keep reading »
The gym I belong to (notice I didn’t say “work out at”) isn’t the kind of place where beefcake-like men make primal-sounding noises as they hoist barbells above their heads. If it were that kind of place, I wouldn’t even be a member, because grunting guys would be in control. Need a five-pound weight? Too bad, a red-faced guy is standing in the way and might attack. With lizards, it’s the same. According to a new study, some lizards do morning and evening push-up routines as a show of their strength and to mark their territory. “As in humans, if an anole can do many of these push-ups, it shows that he is in prime physical condition,” said researcher Terry J. Ord. “These displays of strength help avert actual physical confrontations between male lizards, which can be very fierce and destructive.” So, by faking toughness, lizards (and guys) get in fewer fights. If you’re a total wimp but don’t want people beating up on you, start grunting at the gym. [LiveScience]

Working out sounds good in theory: tighten up your bod, wear comfy, colorful spandex clothes in public guilt -free, and get your endorphins going. But it’s ads like this one for David Barton Gym that reaffirm my commitment to my flabby physique. It makes working out seem like more of a spectator sport than a personal challenge. The creepy tagline, “I’d pay to see you sweat,” sends a chill up my spine even without some pervy lurker staring at me, breathing harder than me trying to work a Stairmaster. Seriously, this gym sounds like the Creepmaster 2000. The ad makes me want to keep my clothes on, save the membership fees and turn the lights off when I get naked. Problem solved! Gee, who would have thought a gym ad would make me feel a strong sense of body acceptance. [Ad Week] Keep reading »
Kegels. Any woman who has ever pushed a baby out her cooter will tell you all about how powerful exercising those muscles down there is. I had no idea the same work out worked for men. In this informative video, made by the Sexual Health Guru, Coach Kendra (who seems vanilla in yoga pants, but you know is a super freak) explains how to do it in this SFW clip. Apparently even the strongest muscle man can increase his stamina, pleasure, and even do the unthinkable — have multiple orgasms. Now you can train your man for a marathon!
