Two hours ago, I asked myself, "Shouldn't I be using Google Incognito?" I had been doing research for this article, and though I'm on my own computer, in my own home, I could imagine some future situation in which a search history of "sexy men's jockstraps japan" might land me in awkward waters. » 3/07/14 2:15pm 3/07/14 2:15pm

Touching Boxer Shorts Makes Ladies Act as Sex-Crazed as Men

Anyone who has ever watched patrons of a strip club or seen Magic Mike (or completely overwhelmed their sensory receptors by seeing Magic Mike at a strip club) knows that sex — and the desire to have it — makes people do stupid things.

Are Bras From Outer Space? Why Can't We Figure Out Bras?

In the past month, I feel like I've read approximately 9,847,601 articles about bra size and bra fitting and bra washing and bra conspiracies and bra science and bra crime and why everybody on earth is doing bras better than me. This is the thing right now. Huh, they snort. Did you know that 250% of women are wearing… » 6/12/13 7:00pm 6/12/13 7:00pm
