As your prototypical sexually active straight man, you can imagine I’ve had my fair share of forays betwixt the sheets. And over the course of my escapades, I’ve learned that perfection isn’t always easy to achieve in the bedroom, especially when it comes to birth control. A broken condom here, a forgotten pill there – the next thing you know, you’re having nightmares about changing diapers and shopping for onesies.
Of course, the more likely outcome of a birth control breakdown is an unintended pregnancy scare, not an unintended pregnancy. Still, the resulting situation can be rather unpleasant. For a guy, emotions range from apathy to pulse-pounding fear. For a girl, initial concern is followed by massive, crippling panic. Although the “morning-after” pill is 89 percent effective in preventing contraception, it has no proven effect on the fighting, resentment and bitterness that often arise from a surprise pregnancy scare.
However, through careful trial and lots of error, I have stumbled upon a few rules of engagement that can prevent even the most terrifying of pregnancy scares from causing long-term relationship complications. Keep reading »
Holy controversy Batman! I am an unabashed lover of toe cleavage — that little to major peek of toe that sometimes shows in low-cut high heels — and usually prefer a little cleave rather than none at all. But I was surprised to discover that there are people out there who are avidly opposed to toe cleavage in all it’s forms, from just a hint of big toe crook to all five toe bases exposed in all their glory. Of course, there are others who totally fetishize toe cleavage, like the person behind the blog Perversions of the High-Heeled Pump, who posts tons of celebrity pictures of celebrity toe cleave, not to mention vaguely creepy videos. In my opinion, I think a little toe cleavage is very sexy, and the fashion industry agrees with me. According to Wikipedia, “‘toe-cleavage shoes sans stockings’ are part of the ‘unwritten dress code’ of the ‘Voguette’, as dictated by the magazine’s longtime editor in chief Anna Wintour — ‘even in the bitter New York winter’.” And Manolo Blahnik famously said, “the secret of toe cleavage, a very important part of the sexuality of the shoe is that you must only show the first two cracks.” Word. But what about guys? Are they cognizant of toe cleavage? And if so, how do they feel about it? After the jump, thoughts from The Sensitive Guy, The Hipster Guy, and The Experienced Guy.

Oh Eliot Spitzer, what were you thinking? The Governor from New York admitted yesterday that he had been linked to a prostitution ring and government officials are pushing for him to resign or risk impeachment. But what’s really got our goat is the fact that this is yet another case of a powerful guy with a solid family risking it all for a little fun playing doctor with a hooker. In an article in AM New York, a psychotherapist says that high-powered people with fast-paced jobs and responsibility like dangerous, illicit, illegal behavior because it gives them that rush that they can’t get from anywhere else, since they’ve developed such a high-threshold for mental and emotional stimulation. Okay, fine, get that, but why are they also so stupid? “All reasoning and respect for the law go out the window,” says Jonathan Alpert.

The most hilarious moment in the Sex and the City movie trailer is the moment that Samantha comments that Miranda is growing a natural forest along her bikini line. Miranda replies, “When you’re married, you have a different set of priorities.” That is so true, and I am not even married yet. Waxing scares me, so I’m a shaver, but I have to admit that my artistry with the blade leaves much to be desired. My man doesn’t seem to mind, but then again, after four years, it’s a little too late to complain. So I decided to ask some of the other guys on my IM what their preference is for her hair down there. After the jump, The Music Nerd, The Hipster Guy, and The Sensitive Guy give their opinions.

After years of back-and-forth, sleeping in two places, bringing a bag to work and trying to schedule my week so I know I’ll be sleeping at my girlfriend’s place at least one night, I caved. I’m moving in with her. Ballgame OVER.

Earlier this week we posted about the super hot topic of Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome. Then last night I was doing a guest spot on my friends’ radio show, “Devore & Diana” (Maxim Radio, Sirius 108), and that was the topic of conversation as well. Which got me thinking: Would guys consider it a blessing or a curse if their girlfriends had this rare affliction? Thoughts From The Married Guy, The Player, and The Music Nerd, after the jump… Keep reading »
So, I read this quote from Eva Longoria recently, who said she never farts in front of her husband, Tony Parker. “I save it for myself. You have to keep the mystery.” Oy. To be perfectly honest, I totally fart in front of my fiance, and have farted in front of him for a very long time. In fact, I recently asked him if he remembered the first time I did fart in front of him — I think it’s an important moment in a relationship, in that it shows the depth of your comfort level with the person. Like that episode of Sex and the City when Carrie finally “does a number two” at Big’s apartment. Very momentous occasion! Anyway, he did seem to remember the generalities of the occasion and, not to brag, but he also said he wasn’t revolted by me — which probably explains why I haven’t been embarrassed enough to stop. So anyway, Eva’s comment got me thinking about what guys really think about their girlfriends/wives flatulence. Obviously, accidents happen over the course of a relationship, but do many couples actually let loose on a regular basis? Thoughts from The Hipster Guy, The Music Nerd, and The Married Guy, after the jump. Keep reading »
