Girl Talk: Why Am I Scared Of Men?

After hours in front of my laptop, my back is usually gnarled into a “C” shape. I’ve learned to remedy the Ladyblogging Hunchback with some yoga. But this afternoon, when I checked the schedule and read the instructor’s name, Matthew, I started making excuses not to go. I don’t know Matthew, but I might have…

A Manly Bear With Scent Appeal

Look at this bear. Now look away from this bear and look at your man. Is your man as manly as this bear? What if I told you this bear was actually just a fancy decanter for a stick of Old Spice? Are you more or less attracted to this bear? Why are you attracted…

A Man Who Is Determined To Breastfeed

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,…

Men And Women Starting To Look More Alike

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…

Don’t “Man Up Now,” Guys: It Might Make You Faint

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.

Want A Man? Wear A Hat

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.

What Do We Think Of Hot Men Undressing To Sell Maxi Pads?

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…

Men Really Are Bigger Babies When They’re Sick

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…

L’Oréal Markets “Macho” Anti-Wrinkle Product To French Guys

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 i…

This One’s For The Boys

Among the plethora of relationship self help books that line an entire shelf of my best friend’s apartment, sits The Manual ($10.04 at Amazon). After scanning the table of contents and sifting through the pages, I came across one piece of advice that I had to take a second look at: Dress to men’s fantasies,…

Dude, Your Flexibility Is Freaking Me Out

Yeah, uh, I don’t know. This guy? He’s kind of freaking me out. He’s so … flexible. This vintage ad for Cricketeer suits is intended to show that this — ahem — polyester suit will “give you almost as much freedom as [your] birthday suit,” but I walk away from it with nothing but the…

Girl Talk: I’m Just Not That Into Anyone Anymore

A year ago, my average week was something like a “Sex and The City” episode. Maybe it wasn’t that funny, maybe my clothes weren’t that fabulous, and maybe there weren’t that many hot-yet-problematic men, but there were guys, quite a few of them. I’d never had a boyfriend in high school. Then I went to…

7 Traits Of Irresistible Men

We’re not going to lie. A man boasting abs chiseled to perfection and biceps that pop just enough when flexed (without shredding shirts He-Man style) will no-doubt turn our heads. And even if caught mid check-him-out glance, we’re not about to look away. Fit, toned bodies are the result of hard work and dedication to…

Is It True Men Just Want Sex?

A lot of women are conditioned to believe that all men want women for is Sex. Men are the enemy, as they only have one thing on their mind. They want to abuse you and use you, and when they get what they came for, they’ll leave. This is not true, well not completely.
