A study published in the American Sociological Review found that men who spent more time doing “more traditionally female” household chores like cooking, cleaning, and shopping were found to have less sex than those who didn’t. “The results suggest the existence of a gendered set of sexual scripts, in which the traditional performance and display of gender is important for creation of sexual desire and performance of sexual activity,” said one of the lead researchers. Really? But really? I’m sorry, I respect scientific theory, but I simply can’t think of anything sexier than a man doing the dishes or wielding a mop or cooking dinner for me. Maybe that’s because I believe in household egalitarianism. Performative gender roles be dammed! A man doing “traditionally female” chores is a straight up aphrodisiac. [Newswise]

Dear Kenneth Guillespie,
I hate to be the one to say this to you, but it’s time to get sober, buddy. You probably already know this, but it seems like you’ve finally hit “bottom” as they say. You were found half-naked, screaming in agony after attempting to have sex with a snowman. Kenneth, let’s be real here — you almost lost your dick. If you put your penis in a snowman, you’re going to get frostbite. That’s how it works. But I’m sure you weren’t thinking clearly. Because you were wasted. (The neighbors found a pile of empties near the snowman carnage.) Keep reading »
I’m going to preface this by saying that I am a yogi. I do a combination of Bikram style hot yoga and vinyasa flow at least three days a week. I support yoga in all of its forms. But please, don’t make me think about a room full of men practicing it naked. In Edmonton, Canada, Shanti Yoga Studio’s men-only naked class is gaining popularity, CTV News reports. To quote Winona, “Aaahhhhhh! No downward facing ballsacks!” I couldn’t have said it better. And I don’t even want to imagine what Crow Pose looks like naked. It’s just not something I can endorse. [Huffington Post]
Guys, I’m sorry to say this, but with the whole penis and balls situation there are just some things that just really aren’t becoming for you to do naked – or at least, for us to see you do naked. Here are the worst offenders…
From what I can glean with my limited grasp of the Spanish language, this story on Anatomika says photographer Armin Morbach works with the penis as his subject. I think it says he gives personality to penises, but I’m really not sure. I think that Edvard Munch would be proud of this adaptation of “The Scream” featuring a dickhead. (The uncensored version is after the jump.) But really, this is nothing compared to the penis puppets. Spoiler: one of them is smoking a cigarette. What a rebel! Morbach’s extremely NSFW, but MIND-BLOWING penis art after the jump. [Anatomika]

After a bunch of her college students admitted to having contests to see how many penis slang terms they could come up with, linguist Deborah Cameron decided to do a study on the matter. She broke her students up into two groups (male and female) and had them come up with as many penis slang terms as possible. In the paper she published about the experiment, “Naming of Parts: Gender, culture, and terms for the penis among American college students,” she discovered that while there are thousands of penis nicknames, they all fall into six distinct categories. Fascinating. Click through the gallery above to find out what they were… [Mental Floss]
Women have no secrets. Not really. We readily spill the beans about everything from the guy we hooked up with to our marital problems. Discussing our lives is the glue that keeps book clubs together. But there’s something we need to talk more openly about: penis size.
Not that we haven’t been discussing size, but we’ve only been doing it in hushed voices after several martinis. Why? Because men have made size a taboo subject, even though they’re the ones who are obsessed with it.
Our silence isn’t helping. Men foolishly seem to think size is a big deal, or the only deal. This is evidenced by the overwhelming amount of emails for penis enlargement procedures clogging up my spam folder. Men get hung up on equating their masculinity or their sexual prowess with their penis size. That couldn’t be further from the truth, at least, from the female perspective. Keep reading »
There were a lot of moments in 2012 that stood out, that burst forth, rose in prominence and were hard to ignore. These 12 moments in celebrity bulges were our favorites. We hope they’re swelling with pride.
Every day I counsel men and women who are concerned about improving their sex lives. The sad truth is that most of us are very poorly educated about sexuality despite the plethora of media attention on it.
One of the questions men (and women) often ask about is penis size. Most males, at some time in their lives, worry about whether they are “big enough.” Many women wonder whether bigger is better.
My friend Dr. David Buss and his colleague Dr. Cindy Meston wrote a wonderful book calledWhy Women Have Sex
. In it, they discuss penis size and sexual satisfaction. Their results may surprise you. Read more…
After the news broke that MMA Fighter Ray Elbe’s penis broke (I missed that news seeing as how I’d never heard of Ray before), he felt called to make a video about the incident. He says he wanted to come forward to talk about his traumatic penile fracture so that people could understand the “significance of the emergency” of having a broken dick. (Oh, I think we understand. Even those of us who don’t have them.YIKES.)
After Googling it, Ray discovered that lots of other men break their penis bones and some are too embarrassed to seek help. He doesn’t want anyone to be alone in this nightmare. Now that I know who he is and all the gory, bloody details of his sex injury and have seen him pour his pee from a catheter into a pitcher, I feel much more informed about penis injuries. In Ray’s words, “Keeping it safe during sex isn’t just about wearing a condom.” Noted, Ray. I will take great care next time I “come out the top and down” on a penis. His words, not mine. [Dlisted]
Penises are the greatest, just on their own, chillin’, flaccid, doing nothing or erect, inserting themselves into orifices. Simply the best, those dicks.

Click ahead to see some sexy penis moves that, when performed properly, have the power to blow our minds. Or at least make us laugh our asses off. Hey, laughter is sexy.
