No wonder some men can have pretty messed up ideas about masculinity. This old bodybuilding ad posted on Boing Boing — in which men claim to have gained 25 and 70 pounds of muscle and increased their “He-Man looks” by 1,000 percent — really goes for the hard sell. Is it just me or does that dude look like Ronnie from “Jersey Shore”? [Boing Boing]
Remember Aaron Carter? He’s the younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and the one who caused all that drama between Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan? Well, he posted some pretty scary pics of himself on Twitter last week. “I’ve been at Johnny Wright’s compound working on my mind, music, and body for a new album release!” he wrote alongside the pics. Is it just us, or does he look like a skinned piece of gristly meat hanging in a butcher shop window? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
I remember watching Britney Spears on “Ellen” a few years ago while she was still known more for her sculpted abs than her train wreck life. When Ellen asked Brit-Brit how she maintained her six-pack, she boasted that she did around 500 crunches a day. Now that she spends most of her time, I don’t know, going to custody hearings and possibly making sex tapes, she might be interested in this new $69 ab kit that includes everything one needs — shadows, sprays, highlighters, primers and contour brushes — to create the appearance of tight abs without all those hours spent crunching. And for the rest of us who don’t work out but still want everyone to envy our bodies, the ab kit’s out just in time for Sluttoween! [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
Move over ecstasy, there’s a new club drug gaining popularity in New York — and it’s legal! According to a bouncer, Preparation H, the hemorrhoid cream, is being slathered across dance floors by men who are trying to look extra-ripped for the ladies. Because, you know, nothing says macho quite like the scent of butt balm.

My husband and I have tried having wall sex and shower sex (facing each other, missionary-style, etc.) and I think they make it look much hotter in the movies. Either that or my quads are just weak – what exercises will improve the fun of sex standing up? — Unstable in Boston, MA
I don’t know about you ladies, but I’ve got one position I do (and do it well). I don’t call it missionary, I don’t call it wheelbarrow, I call it lay on my back while my boyfriend does all the work. Sure, I’ll put my legs behind my head sometimes; I’ll even gyrate a little. The point is, zero muscles are being used and I like it. But all good things must come to an end, or change, and we’ve got to switch it up sometimes. Shower sex, sex against the wall or doorway, and all other sex standing up does take training. Here’s a few of my favorite exercises for getting into “sex” shape:
Squats (with free weights): Hold the weights (I normally do 5 lbs) down by your thighs. With your feet shoulder-width apart and flat on the floor, squat down until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Return to a standing position. Repeat until you can’t take it anymore.
Jump Rope: Trainers say this is one of the best exercises for building calf muscles. If you jump for twenty minutes (doing whatever variations are fun for you) those suckers are gonna burn.
Spin class: People make fun of me for raving about my spin class, but it works. Yeah, you’re gonna be subjected to the latest Bee Gees remix and yeah, you feel like you might die 30 minutes in, but when I do it consistently, my legs look like they belong to a Ugandan runner.
