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 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.

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 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 »

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, 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 »

J.Crew Finds Real Men To Obsess Over

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]

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 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 »
