My Naughty Bits Won’t Stop Sweating

Usually I find The New York Times Style section to be embarrassingly behind the times. Recent articles include trend pieces on people playing Big Buck Hunter at bars and the popularity of Twitter hashtags. “What’s next? An article about this new TV show called ‘Jersey Shore’?” I am prone to joking.

However, for the first time in a while, this week’s Style section features an article that is relevant to my immediate interests. Sort of. “Powder Surge: It’s A Guy Thing” is about men using talc, baby powder, and fancier branded powders to keep their nether-regions dry during the hot summer months. Basically, the NY Times printed an article about ball sweat and how men deal with it. Keep reading »

Why Is Everyone So Concerned About My Anus?

It has recently come to my attention that perhaps I am not as concerned about the cleanliness of my anus as I should be. See, in the last few weeks, I feel like the universe has been trying to tell me that keeping my chocolate starfish pristine should be higher on my list of priorities. It’s giving me a complex.

A Close (And Sweet-Smelling) Shave

I consider shaving my legs a necessary summer evil, and to that end, I’ve tried to make it as quick and painless as possible. Enter Eos’ line of sweet-smelling, very effective shaving creams. Eos can be used either in the shower or dry–and it works like a charm, while smelling great to boot. I especially love the pomegranate-raspberry scent. Eos, if you’re listening, make some shower gel and after-shave moisturizer. I’ll definitely buy that, too.

Girl Talk: The Couple That Grooms Together, Stays Together

“It’s really awesome for me that you’re not obsessed with showering every day,” my new boyfriend remarked recently. I looked at him somewhat surprised. “Well, then I don’t have to either,” he explained.

See, I’m a “shower every other day” kind of girl, with the occasional whore’s bath thrown in when necessary. It’s not something I’ve typically advertised to the men I’ve dated over the last few years and I doubt they’ve noticed since I’ve taken care to groom before dates and whatnot. But with M. living out of town and coming to visit for days at a time, our mutual grooming habits have been obvious and, it seems, in sync. Keep reading »

Introducing: “Guess The Publication”

I’m going to introduce a new little game around here. Let’s call it: “Guess the Publication.” I’ll post a quote and you guess which major print or online publication it’s pulled from. Sound fun? Good. Here’s the first one:

“A woman needs to come up with a workable routine for maintaining her looks throughout her lifetime and avoid rationalizing slacking off— while she’s seeking a man and after she has one. Yeah, you might have to put five or ten extra minutes into prettying up just to hang around the house. And, sure, you might be more ‘comfortable’ in big sloppy sweats, but how ‘comfortable’ will you be if he leaves you for a woman who cares enough to look hot for him?”

Your choices: A. Marie Claire B. Cosmopolitan C. Psychology Today D. The Atlantic. Find out the answer after the jump. Keep reading »
