As a man, I like to get to the point. Which is why there are only three acceptable texts a person can send or receive, and those three texts are “I am late,” “Where are you?” and “Do you need beer?” A cell phone is a communication tool. It relays important information. They are not toys. Do you think Captain Kirk ever sent Spock a message on his communicator that read, “How r u? : – )” No. Exploring strange new worlds is serious business. Keep reading »
A few weeks ago, I chopped off all my hair. For the most part, I’m loving it, but I’ve also been having a weird/hilarious adjustment period. My latest thing is that I’m convinced my hair is man-repelling. That is to say, I get the sense that guys find the look intimidating, the same way they might not be turned on by high-waisted jeans or harem pants. In all likelihood, it’s probably my deer-in-headlights look that guys tend to mistake for ice queen death stares. Though, I do have to wonder if the change in going-out dynamics isn’t due to my borderline andro haircut.
It’s just that I’m pretty sure all guys are guys, and may find a short-haired girl “cute” but inevitably, by default, they fantasize about women with long hair they can run their fingers through. I asked our resident man-in-charge, John DeVore, for his thoughts on the matter … Keep reading »
The most important words a son can learn are “everything is fine, mom.” Which isn’t a lie. It’s more of a wish dressed up like the truth. No different, really, than a mother looking down at her chubby son looking up at her through swimming goggles, a towel tied around his neck, and asking if he could one day be a superhero. Was it possible? Did he have her permission? And her saying, “Yes, yes, and yes.” You know those stories about a mother lifting a car to save her child? Such displays of super-strength aren’t that rare. Most mothers carry their hopes and fears for their children on their backs, stooping over from that terrible treasure’s weight. Atlas had it easy. A man should aspire to relieve her of this burden from time to time. Laid off? Heartbroken? Monsters under the bed? Everything is fine. Keep reading »
How much porn have I watched in my life? I don’t know, how many breaths have you taken?
No, no, I’m exaggerating. How many times have you said “like”?
Here’s the thing: When it comes to having sex, most people don’t actually want it to be like the porn they love. At all. Read more … Keep reading »
Esquire recently published an article called “1,000 Things You Don’t Know About Women,” full of quotes gathered from lots of women who were asked to share something about their gender that men my be surprised to learn. The Frisky would like to do a similar article on things women don’t know about men and, guys, we need your help. Would you please share a secret or two about sex, relationships, what you love about women, what you wish you could change, and how you view life through the lens of a guy? Please don’t leave your secrets in the comments (we want to keep them a secret for now, after all), but send them to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can share them with our readers, along with submissions from other dear males in our lives. Many thanks!! Keep reading »
Somewhere between hanging out with the guys at a strip club and hiring an escort on the social-acceptability scale sits the erotic massage — a cultural institution that most red-blooded men have at least thought about.
But for many, reasons of legality, morality or limited funds keep whatever happens after stretching out on that table squarely in the realm of fantasy.
For them, we asked Molly L., a $150-an-hour PhD student in philosophy who runs an erotic massage business out of her one-bedroom Manhattan apartment, to fill us in on her process — from the beginning to (presumably happy) end(ing). Read more … Keep reading »
