Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Handies Versus Blowies, Part 2

You know, sometimes a gal reaches the end of her research, sits there for a moment and says to herself, “I don’t think I have enough information to fairly come to a conclusion.” That’s the way I felt after last week’s “hand jobs versus blow jobs” discussion. So, like a trooper, I went back out into the field and asked three more guys on my IM what they thought. You’re welcome. Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Handies Versus Blowies, Discuss!

Last night I was skimming the new issue of Glamour and came across an article called “12 Things Guys Wish You Knew in Bed,” written by a dude named Adrian Colesberry. Surprisingly, I learned something! According to him, “in a blindfold test, most men would prefer a hand job to oral sex.” What? Nuh. Uh. I haven’t spent the last god knows how many years training my gag reflex for nothing … right? I needed many more opinions on the matter (and am happy to hear more, fellas), of course. Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Would You Take A Male Contraceptive Pill?

Ahh, the pill. I’ve been off and on the birth control pill for years and have been lucky enough to not have many annoying side effects. But lately there’s been more and more talk about the potential — someday! — for there to be a male contraceptive pill on the market. Gawker writer Ravi Somaiya recently wrote about why such a pill is a stupid idea. He claims that men would either be too lazy or irresponsible to take it, that they would lie about having taken it if it meant getting laid, and that women would never trust them to anyway. I mean, didn’t ya know? Men think with their penises! Personally, I found his argument to be stupid and insulting to men, but what do I know? I’m not a dude. But the guys on my IM most certainly have peens, so let’s see whether they would be down to take the male BC. Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Has A Girlfriend Ever Hit You?

Ever since Tiger Woods was in that car accident last week and rumors swirled that his wife Elin Nordegren had scratched his face during a fight (and may have gone after him with a golf club) there’s been buzz about female-on-male domestic violence. I confessed to having once hit a boyfriend and the comments on the post have been filled with debate. I was curious about how other men would respond if their girlfriends got physical with them, so I went to the guys on my IM and asked them to weigh in. Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: How Much Porn Do You Watch?

The other night, the new BF and I were chatting and somehow the topic of conversation landed on porn, as it is prone to do when you’re dating someone like me. He was saying something about watching the same thing twice and I thought that was interesting, because I always thought men have “favorites” — you know, videos bookmarked on their browsers, secret files of nudie pics with only redheads, etc. So I thought it was time to revisit the topic of porn, how much dudes watch, and what holds their attention. Check for all the juicy details, after the jump… Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: What Do You Think Of Women With Tattoos?

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I have two mildly unfortunate tattoos. Annika just got a new tat, bringing her grand total to eight pieces of ink. The reasons for our ink could not be more different — I got mine when I was young and stupid and I totally regret them. If I could, I would go back in time and scream at myself, “Amelia, you are not Chinese! What’s with the characters?!” But Annika, on the other hand, is totally passionate about her body art and is very choosy and thoughtful in deciding what she wants to get inked on her body. Still, there are assumptions made by everyone — bosses, parents, and, yes, men — about women with tattoos. To find out what those assumptions are, I went to the guys on my IM. Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Are You Cool With Sex Toys In The Bedroom?

First there was the Succu Dry, a sex toy for men with a fanged orifice; and then today we introduced you to a vibrating ring that dudes can masturbate with on the go. Clearly, sex toy production is on the rise. But the most common place a dude might encounter one is with the lady he’s lovin’. So how do guys actually feel when a gal breaks out her vibrator? How often are they down for the extra help? And would they ever try a sex toy on themselves? An array of answers, after the jump… Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Are Men Or Women Better At Fighting?

I know, I know, how do you define “better,” right? But I think most people would agree that men and women tend to have different fighting “styles,” which really becomes a problem when we’re fighting with each other, especially in a romantic relationship. So, what do men think of the way their partners behave during a lover’s quarrel? Do they think women make a big deal out of nothing, or do they think we’re actually more advanced when it comes to conflict resolution? Find out, after the jump. Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: When Was The Last Time You Cried?

In the time I have been interviewing the guys on my IM about everything from anal sex and condom use to masturbation and cheating, they have never been as uncomfortable with a question as they were with this one. A study out of Australia says that men cry an average of six times a year, while women cry 30-64 times or a year (or 2 hours and 14 minutes a day!). We already asked you how often you cry, but I decided to ask the fellas when was the last time they shed a tear and why. I was pretty stunned. Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Will You Stick Around If You Can’t Stand Her Friends?

You know what’s nice? When you meet someone and they’re awesome and you like them and they like you and BONUS, their friends RULE. And you know what sucks? The opposite of that. When the dude you’re into has friends that are just THE WORST. Still, I’ve been known to suffer through a lot of beer guzzling with a dude’s former frat pals or a guy’s practically mute guitar-picking crew, just because I like him. But how much is a man willing to deal with when it comes to the woman he likes and that posse of gossipy bitches she calls her “best friends”? I’m lucky — I think my friends are the awesomest chicks in all of awesometown. But what if, say, my besties were made up of Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Kristen Stewart, and Heidi Montag (or, for visual purposes, the Heathers)? How would a dude deal with a woman whose friendship circle included those three for company? I went to the you-know-whos to find out. Keep reading »
