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, and do it subtly. Could this be the reason I was still single? Because I didn’t look like a naughty librarian or a French maid when I went out? I decided to put this hypothesis to the test. I spent five nights in adult dress-up, playing to every guy’s porn-worthy pipe dreams. Keep reading »
Forget those perfect male models with their minimal body fat and flawless hair. J.Crew is here to show that real guys are what’s hot now, and we wholeheartedly agree. For their November catalog, 11 real men were chosen to model in “The Real Guy’s Style Guide.” It’s all thanks to one guy, hotelier Sean Macpherson, who complained about the cashmere. Jenna Lyons, J.Crew’s senior vice president of women’s design, stepped in to help, and after noticing what a hottie he was, asked him to be our man candy. Joining Macpherson are ten other dudes, including musician Smitty, author Tom Folsom, designers Byron & Dexter and filmmaker Lee Daniels. They dish details about their lives in handwritten Q&As and model iconic J.Crew items. Go to the J.Crew site now to drool.
We also have to say, that’s some customer service department they’ve got there. [WWD]

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 heebie-jeebies. I guess that’s what you get for $100. And why are his hands placed, like, there? Is he warding off some sort of an attack, or did they not want to feature his butt so prominently in this ad? I remain confused. Hopefully, men who can turn themselves into human pretzels will engage in these types of activities in the bedroom, not the boardroom. [Jezebel] Keep reading »
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 an all-women’s college. In my senior year, I was in a serious relationship. When that didn’t work out, I found a Pandora’s Box of pleasures in the City. Keep reading »
If you’ve ever walked by a construction site during the summer months (hell, any month of the year) or caught your boyfriend doing a triple take at the hot piece of a-s-s that just unknowingly strolled by, you won’t find this entirely shocking: The average male spends about a year of his life eyeing up women. According to a new British study, men will spend 43 minutes a day ogling ten different women. I don’t think I could find ten different men I’d want to ogle each day! (Apparently, women aren’t quite as stare-down prone: The average woman spends 20 minutes a day looking at six men.) This news, I suspect, will make some women happy—and frustrate the hell out of the rest. It all depends on where you fall on the want-to-be ogled scale—do you love it, but only when you know the guy and you’re feeling hot? Hate it any time of the day, month, year? Will take the male attention where ever you can get it? [Daily Mail]

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 a healthy lifestyle. We certainly pay homage to that. But for a man to achieve a skyrocketing score on the sexiness scale there’s got to be more to him than physical assets. Throw in these seven traits and he’s guaranteed irresistible. Keep reading »
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.
It is true that men have an instinct and inborn desire for sex, as women have an instinct to have children, just like the primates who came before us.
It is true that women can manipulate men to want to be in a relationship with them by using sex as a tool. Continue reading…

Ever since word got out earlier this week that scientists have figured out how to create synthetic sperm from embryonic stem cells, people have been fantasizing what a world without men might be like. I don’t get it — would synthetic sperm only create girl babies? And why would any of us want a world with no men anyway? Who would carry our heavy luggage up the stairs after getting home from a vacation? After the jump, 15 things we’d miss about men if they ever became extinct. Keep reading »
Next time you are falling asleep and your man is crawling all over you trying get some action, tell him to eat something. After all, he’ll get more pleasure out of it. Sounds crazy, right? Well, an Australian study gave dudes a “pleasure quotient test” to figure out how much they liked certain activities. And surprise! Eating came in first, as the best and most amazing activity of all. (Us gals already knew that. Think: PMS + hot fudge sundaes.) Eating was followed by personal accomplishments and relaxing. Physical arousal came in FOURTH. That’s right. Just a fun fact you can drop when it seems appropriate. [Asylum] Keep reading »
