Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Do You Like To Be Dominated?

I haven't met many men that like to be dominated on a regular basis, but most gals I know like to take charge in the bedroom, at least from time to time. Aside from obvious dominate/submissive relationships, how do regular ol' Joes feel about women taking charge between the sheets, both is subtle ways --…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: What Really Turns You On?

Lately I've been kind of getting in touch with my kinkier side. Being that I didn't really have a kinky side before, it's a big deal for me that I've discovered the pleasures of, uh, ass-smacking. Now that it's kind of my "thing," I've been thinking about other people I know and their "things." I…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: How Do Men Like To Be Wooed?

You know what has always struck me as unfair? That Valentine's Day is largely considered to be a holiday for women. In all the ads for the holiday, jewelry, chocolates, flowers, etc. are all gifts given to women, from their devoted, tie-clad husbands and boyfriends. Bu what about dudes? Don't they want cheesy tokens of…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: All About Nipples

Lately I've noticed that a lot of stars are showing up events or are photographed with visible nipple action, either in the form of hard, erect nipples poking through shirts (Paris Hilton), or thin fabric exposing the slightest bit of areolae shape and color (Beyonce, I am talking to you). With the insane array of…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: When Does Dating Evolve Into BF/GF Territory?

Now that I'm back on the "dating scene," I've realized that I'm still borderline idiotic when it comes to male-female courtships. My last relationship started off pretty typically -- a dinner date here, a movie date there -- but quickly spiraled into very serious, very quickly. We said I love you within two months, moved…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Are You A Feminist?

Last week we wrote about the controversy surrounding Ms. magazine's cover image which featured President Obama in a shirt that reads, "This Is What A Feminist Looks Like." Around the same time, it was revealed that Obama does identify as a feminist, a fact that, frankly, impresses me. Many women with feminist values don't identify…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Can Men & Women Be Friends Without Drama?

After we watched Kate Winslet gush about her 15 year love for Leonardo DiCaprio at Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards -- in front of her husband, Sam Mendes, not to mention millions of viewers -- we kind of got to wondering if men and women can really maintain tight friendships, if one or both of…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: First Date Sex

As I wrote yesterday, if you have any desire to possibly, maybe having something deeper than bed rockin' nookie with a dude, you shouldn't sleep with him on the first date. I came to this conclusion after many years of experience, chatting with friends (men and women), and having a late night, New Year's champagne-infused…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Why’d You Disappear?

I'm back in the dating game again, sorta, and I'm not thrilled about it. One of the reasons? I remember, oh-so-well, how annoying it was when guys I thought I was connecting with and having fun with, pulled "the fade." That is, when you've gone out on a few dates, had a great time, maybe…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Is Short Hair Really A Boner Killer?

I just read the world's most obnoxious article in The New York Daily News. According to the reporter and his panel of experts/douchebags, short hair on a woman is a total turn-off for men. Unfortunately, this is hardly the first time I've heard this and I can't help but wonder if this "rumor" is the…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Doing It & Thinking About Doing It

There's a commonly held belief that men are always thinking about sex. Always. I actually think women think about sex almost as often, though not necessarily in the same ways. But another accepted belief is that dudes would have sex all the time, if given the choice -- I wasn't sure if that was true,…

Thoughts From Guys & Gals On Our IM: Do Condoms Suck That Much?

A Note On Playing It Safe: The Frisky thinks safe sex is smart sex - so please practice it in the way that’s right for your relationship. So, NPR posted a story saying that condom-less sex is the new engagement ring, because going bareback shows the same or similar kind of intimacy and trust…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: When He Can’t Get Her Off

It's an exciting week! We've got not one but two new additions to the "Guys On Our IM" roster (including one of our boys at AskMen.com), each desperate to wow your lady skulls with their revelations on the male psyche, sex drive, and beating heart. This week, I broke 'em in hard, asking them to…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Why Don’t You Notice Our Effing Lingerie?!

In yesterday's post about the 30 things women love that men don't understand, I listed "sexless cotton brief underwear" at number 11. Those are my favorite kinds of lingerie -- in cute, fun prints, yes, but cotton, usually paired with a bright, cotton bra with about as much sex appeal as Rainbow Bright. I've got…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: The “Before Marriage” Sex List

The other day, one of the Guys On My IM told me, "Guys want to bang a model, a stripper, a famous chick, and maybe a flight attendant before getting hitched." I've heard such sentiments before, though not from any guy I truly respected (I actually respect this particular guy, despite his pre-marriage hump list).

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Female Grooming Habits

This weekend, when I was in Atlantic City, one of my fellow ragers asked me if she could borrow my tweezers so she could pluck a nipple hair. A nipple hair? She had nipple hair? "Yeah, don't you?" I honestly didn't know. She also said she waxed above her lip. Crap, I've never waxed my…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Do You Have Dating Age Restrictions?

Women typically date their own age or older, whereas guys typically date their own age or younger -- I suppose this is because women mature faster than men, but once you've reached full on adulthood, certainly maturity evens out somewhat. With that in mind, I decided to find out what their rules are when it…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: What Constitutes Cheating?

I've been thinking a lot about cheating lately, and what constitutes cheating for men and women. Personally, I think anything physical starting with kissing is cheating, though of course it increases in severity the more clothes come off. Emotional cheating is very real in my opinion too -- I would be dismayed to find out…

The 10 Shocking Things I’ve Learned From The Guys On My IM

The guys on my IM, while occasionally boneheaded, shallow, and doofusey, are, in general, really nice guys who have been incredibly honest with their opinions on matters of sex and dating and love. As a result, I've learned so much about the opposite sex! Over the last seven months, these guys have opened my eyes,…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Do Guys Like To Be Pursued Or Not?

Last night's episode of "Gossip Girl" was awesomely irritating. After pursuing Blair for ages, Chuck finally got her exactly where he wanted her -- about to give up some lovin' -- but then turned the tables on her instead. It seems that Chuck wants to be chased, instead of the other way around. Say what?
