Have you ever berated your boyfriend for looking “just a little too long” at that girl walking by? Well, now he can tell you it’s just science.

Men Love Explosions And Boobs

I think we can all agree that men like explosions. I think we also can all agree that men like boobs. So, some genius did the math and fused these two things together into this website ExplosionsAndBoobs.com. When you go to the site, a white screen appears along with a picture of a…

The Woman Behind Spike TV

When I think of the executive board room at Spike TV, the Viacom owned men’s cable network whose meathead-ish slogan is, “Get more action,” I envision a bunch of dudes sitting around, drinking beers, scratching their crotches, and brainstorming ideas about new programming featuring boobs and stuff. But perhaps I've been too judgmental? Enter Sharo…

Man-Up: How Men Have Made Me Argue Differently

There have been countless books, situation comedies, songs, and even college courses dedicated to the emotional and psychological differences between men and women. By now, it’s even possible that the similarities between men and women are teetering dangerously on the edge of indicating we’re two completely different species all together. We have completely different outlook…

Seven Things I Learned About Men From Working At Maxim

Earlier today, we posted an essay by former Maxim editor Keith Blanchard in which he listed the nine things he learned about women from working at the magazine. I worked at Maxim, and I learned a few things, too -- about men, that is. Most of my lessons were gained from working with a…

9 Things I Learned About Women From Editing Maxim

I edited Maxim for four years, and let me tell you, we knew everything there was to know about guys. Like this: All guys really care about is girls. Our sex and relationship pieces tried to break down the great female mystery, and they were consistently the highest-rated articles in the magazine aside from, well,…

Why Strip Clubs Are Good For Marriage

During a recent business trip, I found myself shoe-horned into the back of a taxi with colleagues in various stages of inebriation, hurtling through chancy neighborhoods of Baltimore. I was on my Blackberry with my wife, going through the litany of "kids/mail/bills/when are you coming home/this single mother crap is getting old" when the cabbie…

The Lowdown On Where To Break Up

Breaking up is never a pleasant experience. The relationship moves from “You are awesome, let’s spend oodles of time together,” to “Actually, I’m not very fond of you, let’s never see each other again.” Tears fall, fists fly, hurtful things are said—and that’s when a breakup goes well. One of the most important things to…

You Know You Want Me

Hey. You. Yeah, you. The guy at the other end of the bar. The tall, dark, handsome fellow. Holding your sunglasses. Sporting that black jacket. The white shirt. The day-old stubble. AND THE LATEX STOCKINGS WITH MATCHING THONG AND GARTERS. I was trolling the internet when I encountered this fellow. He's really ... something, isn't…

10 Basic Rules For A New Relationship

The beginning of a relationship can be a tricky course to navigate. Guys (like me) aren't so good at guessing what women think or want, and our stupidity can lead to otherwise easily avoidable arguments. Setting some basic rules with your new flame may help you get past the small stuff and start enjoying your…

Dressing The Part: Women Who Have Posed As Men

During the most recent Democratic primary, I found myself wondering how things might have turned out differently if Hillary Clinton had spent less time with the glass ceiling and more time campaigning for President. For that matter, would Sarah Palin have been chosen as John McCain’s ticket mate if she had not been female?

Sharing A Bed With Your Ex

"You're doing what?" I heard that a lot in the spring of 2007, whenever I explained to friends that I had broken up with my Nathan, boyfriend of four years, yet we were still living together in the apartment we'd shared for the last two. It was a temporary matter, I'd say, a situation that…

Why Men Need You To Groom Them

Women, take note: when the appearance of men's toenails suggest that we are either vying for a Guinness World Record -- or preparing for an underground cage fighting match -- feel free to mention that they've gotten a tad long. We don’t mind.

I’m The Inside Spoon And I’m A Dude

Over the years, I've admitted to a lot of embarrassing things. I told you, dear reader, that I work for a ladies magazine, I have been known to have my back waxed and that I use Facebook responsibly (using anything responsibly is a buzz-kill for a crazy mo-fo like me). But the most embarrassing thing…

Why An Attractive Voice Means A Good Mate: The Science Of Sex

We often think of a deep baritone voice as a sexy one, but it seems too cliché to think that a romantically-inclined crooner like Barry White would actually look the part. Yet, although most people’s voices don’t seem to strike a chord one way or the other, research has shown that a person’s voice ca…

Valentine’s Day 2.0: A New Way To Celebrate

"V-Day." Sounds more like an invasion of Normandy than a day spent celebrating love and romance. And rightfully so. Sometimes the intricacies of preparing for the holiday resemble war-room strategy more than jubilation. Sure, you're armed with flowers and chocolates instead of a rifle and grenades, but there is a common dread, with…

Why It’s Better Not To Have A Valentine

Sometime when I wasn't looking, Valentine's Day metamorphosed from a C-list kids' holiday, with pink and red candy and construction-paper hearts, into an extravaganza. The regular-person equivalent of Oscar Night, but instead of Best Picture or Best Supporting Actress, prizes are given for Best Achievement in the Acquisition of a Leading Man. But…
