Time to Accept Reality and Stop Flushing Tampons Down the Toilet

I know, we thought we had it so good for so long, but as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. Or in this case, all that stuff you thought was OK to dump in the toilet, AKA the Get Rid of It Bowl, was, in fact, not OK after all. You know who you are. » 4/24/14 5:10pm Today 5:10pm

What Is a 'Sophisticated Handjob,' and Isn't It an Oxymoron?

I'm immature when it comes to a lot of things, but especially when it comes to handjobs. The reason is simple: Handjobs are hilarious. It's not possible to give one with a straight face when that face belongs to me. It is perhaps the most awkward motion to endeavor ever for someone not in possession of a penis. It is… » 4/24/14 12:20pm Today 12:20pm

Heads Up, Men: You Have No Secrets

A secret is something hidden on purpose — but if the "secret" is a fairly universal behavior practiced by lots of people that the average person would find utterly unsurprising ("Cats like string") then, sorry buddy, but that is not a secret to anyone but you. Which kind of makes it not a secret at all, but like a real… » 4/10/14 12:30pm 4/10/14 12:30pm

If You Could Choose Your Parenting Choice Again, Would You?

You would think that choosy moms choose their choice and would choose it again. But not always. A recent informal experiment into whether stay-at-home mothers would also advise other soon-to-be moms to stay at home now that they've walked a mile in their own choice shoes produced some interesting results about… » 3/30/14 2:00pm 3/30/14 2:00pm

Come On, How Often Do You Really Have to Poop on a Date?

I'm not trying to stir up, er, poo, but I have to ask: How often do you really need to drop a deuce on a date? Isn't this precisely the sort of thing you would do before a date, like, as part of your whole getting ready for the date thing? Shit shower shave is not just for dudes, k? But a book out soon promises to… » 3/21/14 7:00pm 3/21/14 7:00pm

PLEASE Quit Reading Things That Explain What Guys 'Really' Mean

What do women really want? How do men really feel? If you've ever found yourself reading an article that attempts to "decipher" the "code" of male or female behavior, congratulations, you are grasping at straws (or hate-reading). I, too, have read approximately 14,000 bajillion of these pieces over the course of my life,… » 3/19/14 6:50pm 3/19/14 6:50pm

Which comes first, the happiness or the sex? One half of a couple told me a curious thing recently: In couples counseling, they'd been advised to have sex twice a week to foster intimacy while working on the relationship. I wondered not just about the merits of setting a minimal number, but also: Why twice? Twice is… » 2/27/14 6:15pm 2/27/14 6:15pm

Practical College Courses That Don't Exist But Really Should

Why do we go to college? Is it to learn a skill? Is to learn how to think? Is it to meet a future mate? Is it to become a well-rounded person? Get shit-faced? Or is it purely a means to an end — a place to make valuable networking connections and net higher lifetime earnings? On some level it's all that stuff, and yet… » 2/26/14 4:50pm 2/26/14 4:50pm

For the Love of Shallow: Yes, Women Are Attracted to Hotties

We're all the same; we're all different. One man's boner is another man's lifelong aversion to high-heeled women. One woman's sigh is another woman's Gilbert Gottfried. But please, let us finally retire this idea that women just aren't as visual as men and don't care about looks as much, or somehow as a general rule… » 1/14/14 1:25pm 1/14/14 1:25pm
