Valentine’s Day 2.0: A New Way To Celebrate

V-Day.” Sounds more like an invasion of Normandy than a day spent celebrating love and romance. And rightfully so. Sometimes the intricacies of preparing for the holiday resemble war-room strategy more than jubilation. Sure, you’re armed with flowers and chocolates instead of a rifle and grenades, but there is a common dread, with the ti… / February 12, 2009

Would Two Hippos Humping Turn You On?

It’s difficult to have a remarkable Valentine’s Day. A person can only eat a limited amount of drugstore chocolate before gagging in disgust. Red roses are cliche. And gushing over wack jewelry is harder than it looks, unless you’re an Oscar-winning actress. To add a little spice to the day a Michigan zoo came u…

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…

Prep Your Place For A Sexy V-Day Visitor

Feminine touches make a house a home, but before you invite a man back to your place on Valentine’s Day, you’ve gotta make it dude-friendly. Think of it like baby-proofing a place, but for the other kind of baby! You don’t want him to get turned off by your knickknacks when he’s already turned o…

You Got Your Angelina Jolie In My Lipstick

I’m not sure how I feel about this. Am I supposed to take this Angelina Jolie lipstick and stick it in my mouth? And Brad Pitt, too? For some reason, these micro-sculpted lipsticks of the heads of the Two Greatest Celebrities of Our Time make me want to bite off their craniums. But maybe that’…

How To Put Your V In Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day sucks for single people. Yeah, that’s what your disgustingly cute couple friends think, but they’ve got their heads too far up each others’ butts that night to look around and see how many people are out, single and ready to mingle! Unless you’re a sappy saint, getting laid on V-Day is like buying…

Why It’s Better Not To Have A Valentine

Sometime when I wasn’t looking, Valentine’s Day metamorphosed from a C-list kids’ holiday, with pink and red candy and construction-paper hearts, into an extravaganza. The regular-person equivalent of Oscar Night, but instead of Best Picture or Best Supporting Actress, prizes are given for Best Achievement in the Acquisition of a Leading Man.

What He Wants You To Wear On Valentine’s Day

Every woman has been faced with the dilemma of what to wear on a date. We’ll ask anyone in earshot, including the fitting room attendant, but we hardly ever consult the person who has to accompany us on said date. Thankfully, The New York Post asked men what they want their date to wear o…

Valentine’s Day Is For Losers

Valentine’s Day is this weekend, and once again I’m reminded how irrelevant the occasion is to anyone who’s actually in love. Aside from kids and their handmade cards, Valentine’s Day is really just for the lonely, sad, and insecure. Think about it. When was the last time you heard anyone who was happily coupled u…
