Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Is Dita Von Teese Correct That Men Like Watching Women “Get Ready”?

Last week, burlesque star Dita Von Teese had me scratching my head at something she said in an interview with Into The Gloss. Dita, who is publishing an offbeat beauty guide soon, was giving tips on how to "sexify" getting ready so it turns on your man. She explained: "In my book, I’ll have all…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: What Do Men Think About Valentine’s Day?

Confession? I love Valentine's Day. I know it's not cool to admit, but I'm a big soppy romantic at heart. Any day devoted to chocolates, flowers and other showy displays of l'amour is okay by me. (And even if I've been single on V-Day, my dad has always sent me a box of chocolate i…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Do You Worry About Being A “Toxic Bachelor”?

The "toxic bachelor." It was a term we'd never really heard of until a 33-year-old male friend, fresh off a breakup, mentioned it. "I want to settle down," he said. "I want to start a family. Plus, I'm getting to that age where if I don't do it soon, I'm in danger of becoming a…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Do You Want A Woman To Cook For You?

Men and food: the relationship is deep and intertwined. Ever since the days when a man clubbed a pterodactyl on the head and dragged it back to the cave for her to pop in the deep-fryer, women have known that food is very important to them. Possibly, dare I say, even more important than blowjobs?

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Are You Honest About Your Porn Use?

In a piece for The Good Men Project, Hugo Schwyzer writes about the many men he's talked with who lie to their girlfriends/wives about the amount of porn they watch. One man told him that he downplays how much X-rated material he consumes because "women go ballistic when you tell them the truth." Really? Do…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: When Do You Tell A Dude Sex Is Off The Table?

Ladies, get ready, I’m about to have a TMI moment with y’all. A couple of months ago, I went on a date with a guy, and we seemed to really be hitting it off. He made a comment about coming back to my house when we finished up our drinks, and I was really into…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: What Do You Consider Romantic?

Ahh, romance. Always thought about in terms of what women want -- flowers (peonies for me, thanks!), slow-dancing to Kenny G, dinner at fancy French restaurants with overly rich food, etc. But what about men? Surely they like a romantic gesture now and again ... the thing is, what do they consider romantic? What kind…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Would You Ever Have A Cohabitation Agreement With Your Girlfriend?

In today's New York Post there's an interesting "trend" piece about unmarried couples who are drawing up formal and informal "cohabitation agreements" before moving in together. (Bonus!

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…

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.

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…

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 o…

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" --…

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…

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…

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…

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,…

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…
