7 Female Behaviors That Baffle Men (Explained!)

In a previous article, I talked about some of the big questions men ask about women, about relationships and communication and all that boring stuff. But in focusing on the serious man/woman issues of our time, I missed out on other less dramatic, yet equally pressing issues, like why girls go to the bathroom together.

Ask The Man Panel: Michelangelo’s Maxi Dress

The product description for this ModCloth maxi dress begins as follows: “‘Every block of stone has a statue inside it, and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it,’ the great Michelangelo once said. Certainly, he wasn’t talking about this dress…” Luckily for us, our Man Panel certainly is talking about this dre…

Guy Talk: What’s The Difference Between Privacy And Secrecy?

Last week’s discussion about guys, porn, and honesty raised a number of interesting questions. How much truth do we owe our partners about what we do when they’re not around – and how much should we share about what runs through our heads? Almost everyone agrees that outright lies are bad. But are there some…

Guy Talk: Lust Doesn’t Have To Ruin A Platonic Friendship

There are few more famous snippets of film dialogue than this exchange from the 1989 Blly Crystal and Meg Ryan classic, “When Harry Met Sally”:
Harry: You realize of course that we could never be friends.
Sally: Why not?

Ask The Man Panel: The Semi-Formal Swimsuit

This plaid necktie bikini (available on Etsy for $79) is either the most formal swimsuit ever or the least formal business casual outfit in history. It’s giving me a pretty severe bout of cognitive dissonance. How does the Man Panel feel about it? Read on to find out…

Mind Of Man: The Lamest Fantasy Ever

Unless you own a private plane with a bed in the cabin, having sex in an airplane has got to be the lamest sexual fantasy ever. Not to mention corny. And tacky. If you want to do it in public, do it in a park or an alley like decent people. I find its apparent…

Guy Talk: Dads, Hug Your Daughters

“I was always daddy’s little girl. We did everything together. He was my hero. My father was always there with a hug for me; when I was little, he let me climb all over him like he was a jungle gym.
And then my body changed. I developed early; I had boobs by 11.

Guy Talk: Is It Natural For Older Guys To Lust After Young Women?

In my office, Amber is telling me a familiar story. She’s come to talk about her autobiography paper for my women’s studies class, and she reads part of her rough draft aloud.

“I was 12, and this car pulled up alongside me as I was walking home from school … the driver looked…

Mind Of Man: The Super Friends Are My Emotional Support System

Advice is a past mistake regifted. So I’m enjoying Christmas in March. Everyone I know has offered me advice about getting over a breakup and each piece of advice is a piece of personal pain with a ribbon tied around it. I appreciate it, of course. I listen dutifully and say “I hadn’t thought of…

Guy Talk: Ladies, We’d Prefer You Didn’t Fake It

I read a blog post earlier this month that sounded a familiar refrain: Are single women too independent for their own good? Women’s magazines ask that question, men’s magazines ask that question, and the answer is almost always the same: yes.

Guy Talk: The Blessings Of Erectile Dysfunction

If you’ve turned on a TV since 1998, you know how obsessed we are with hard-ons. Since the little blue pill appeared more than a dozen years ago, countless imitators of varying legitimacy and effectiveness have hit the market. Ads for drugs that promise to cure erectile dysfunction run nonstop during sporting events, and the…

Finally! A guide that tells women what men are thinking about when they don’t have sex on the brain. I’ve been waiting for a book like this forever. Sheridan Simove’s, What Every Man Thinks About Apart From Sex is already a best seller on Amazon and it’s clear why. It’s so concise, to the…

Ask The Mega Man Panel: The Capelet Blouse

We love the idea of a capelet, but does it work when it’s part of a shirt? Maybe, maybe not. We asked the man panel to weigh in on this Pins and Needles Melody Capelet Blouse and got a, uh, mixed reaction. And if you’ve got an item you’re dying for the man panel’s opinio…
