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 »
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. A new study out of Indiana University found that a woman’s partner status—whether she has a significant other or not— influences her interest in the opposite sex. But the same is not true for dudes. Neuroscientist Heather Rupp asked 59 men and 56 women, ages 17-26, both single and taken, all heterosexual, to give their “gut” reaction when describing pictures of the opposite sex. Rupp found that while subjectivity in describing the photos as attractive, masculine, feminine, etc was not influenced by whether the man or woman had a partner, single ladies looked at the male photos for a longer period of time than those women with partners. The men, on the other hand, stared just as long at the female photos whether they were taken or single.
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 an explosion and a pair of (classily covered) boobs. When you reload the page, you get another set. It’s so simple, so stupid, and men love it. This website proves yet again that trying to make sense of men is such a waste of time. Keep reading »
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 Sharon Levy, the head of development for Spike’s reality programming, who is destroying the channel’s stereotypical Maxim-esque rep by coming up with un-vaginal programming that appeals to Spike’s male demographic while beckoning women to come check it out, too. (“Grey’s Anatomy?” she tells the New York Times. “Kill me now.”) Sharon, who got her start developing dude faves like “South Park” and “The Man Show” for Comedy Central is the kind of chick who enjoys talking about “Wolverine,” “Star Trek,” and her favorite video games while simultaneously telling you how awesome her new handbag is. She is particularly proud of her limited edition Takashi Murakami/Louis Vuitton. Keep reading »
