What is it with dudes and time? By that we mean, why do they—and of course we are generalizing because that is what we get paid to do—either refuse to be committal when it comes to making a date or are super flaky about the plans/statements they do make? The Non-Committal Type says things like, “Let’s hang out soon” or “I’ll call you sometime.”
Meanwhile, The Flaky Type is super specific, but has zero follow through. “I’ll call you Monday to make plans for a date on Thursday” results in no call Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, so you make alternate plans for Thursday night, but guess what? He’s all up in your grill that morning, saying, “Psyched to hang out tonight!
What should we do?” We are in a constant state of trying to decide which type we hate more. But more important, why do guys generally fall into one of these two buckets? Why is the “Guy Who Makes Specific Plans And Sticks To Them” such a f**king dating unicorn? We went to the guys on our IM to find out.
Common knowledge says that men can’t breastfeed. But … can they? In a kind of awesome article over at Slate.com, writer Michael Thomsen decided to see if he—a 33-year-old male—could lactate after reading that Charles Darwin said it was possible for men to produce milk and looking up a Bible verse (Numbers 11:12, which reads, “Carry them in your bosom, as a nursing father bears the sucking child”) implying that men breastfeeding was once common.

The androgynous look isn’t just a thing that popped up in the 1970s and comes back in vogue every few years. Apparently, it’s an evolutionary fact. Researchers at North Carolina State University (go Wolfpack!) studied Spanish and Portuguese skulls from now, as well as hundreds dating back all the way to 16th century. And it looks like over time, male and female skulls have come to look much more similar than they used to. Why? Apparently while both genders’ skulls looked different, the female skulls showed the most change. Over time, women’s facial structures have gotten larger, probably because of better nutrition. Ahhh, so this explains the Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber phenomenon. [Newser, Science Daily] Keep reading »
Time to stock up on the Horny Goat Weed instead, you guys! (Just kidding.) The FDA issued a warning on Wednesday for Man Up Now, a “dietary supplement for men’s sexual arousal” because it could dangerously lower blood pressure. Although Man Up Now capsules market themselves as “all natural” and “herbal,” they contain an active drug found in Viagra called sulfoaildenafil. Sulfoaildenafil can cause blood pressure to plummet through the carpet and make you dizzy and lightheaded. So stop operating heavy machinery, you randy little minxes, and ditch your Man Up Now pills immediately, per FDA request. Keep reading »
Ladies, having trouble attracting a man (AND HOW)? Then grab a bowler hat. That’s right: a bowler hat. According to Daily Mail writer Deborah Francis-White, a jaunty cap will do the trick to attract a mate. Says Francis-White:
“I’ve worn a bowler hat and the effect is extraordinary. When I walk down the street dressed normally, nothing happens. If I walk down the street in a bowler, a man will say at least five times a day: ‘Nice hat!’ — which I read as a more acceptable way of saying: ‘Nice breasts!’”
Or, maybe you’re just wearing a stupid hat? Keep reading »
We ladies don’t get too much eye candy in TV commercials. The advertising motto “sex sells” seems only to apply to fake breasts selling body spray and beer. But all that is changed by Stayfree’s new series of YouTube commercials, “A Date With …” Three hunks who take off their shirts, three dream dates, three … commercials for maxi pads?
“A Date With Brad” is above and you can check out “A Date With Trevor” and “A Date With Ryan” after the jump. Keep reading »
In another study apparently done by the “No Duh” doctors, it is official—men whine more about illness than women. The experts call the condition “man flu” and suggest that men are probably exaggerating illness to gain “maximum sympathy.” The Engage Mutual study of 3,000 people also found that 50 percent of men like to classify a common cold as “the flu” and regular headaches as “migraines.” Researcher Karl Elliot says, “Men may have fewer bouts of genuine sickness a year—five compared to the seven suffered by women—but when ill, their attention seeking behavior makes sure their partner knows about it.” But even with the kvetching, men are actually less likely to take time off of work, with 76 percent struggling through. The survey also found that women are more likely to whine about their aches on a daily basis. But maybe the most interesting aspect is the sympathy and caring. Elliott explained, “Women score higher than men on being prepared to dole out the sympathy for an attention seeking partner, regardless of whether they believe they are genuinely ill, or not. But when it comes to doing the little things that make a partner more comfortable when they are ill, men and women seem to be more evenly matched.” Which means that your dude will get you Nyquil and draw you a bath, even though you’re all boogery and unattractive.

In France, there’s a metrosexual common denominator—all males seem to come out of the womb in bespoke suits and are born with an encyclopedic knowledge of style and culture. But the real men use this super macho anti-wrinkle pen product from L’Oréal. That’s right, dudes get wrinkles, too, and the way they combat them is through phallic-like devices encased in tough ice and supercharged with vitamin C and caffeine. The L’Oréal Men Expert Hydra Energetic Bille Glacé Yeux (they want to give you a mouthful, huh?) is a portable rolling pen that dispenses a cooling substance which aids in the reduction of fine lines and makes you look less tired. Don’t believe any dude would actually use this? Meet three L’Oréal men on the product’s microsite … Keep reading »

Poor men. They have it so hard! As Samantha Bee pointed out in Wednesday’s “Daily Show” skit, they only run 485 of the Fortune 500 companies and three branches of government. How’d this happen, babycakes? Let’s find out … and remember, it’s satire, people. [The Daily Show] Keep reading »
