What Men Are Really Attracted To

I went on a date the other week with a pair of hot Swedish volleyball players with galactic hoots and bodies so taut that quarters bounce off bellies. These buxom hotties could easily have graced the pages of Brodawg Magazine, posing in the rain, wearing only leather belts. As they were putting on their heels to join me in the champagne jacuzzi, it occurred to me that these phantasmagorical sirens weren't doing it for me.

Cheap Dates During The Recession

Twice, my friend Susan (I have changed some names and identifiers) found herself covering for a date who was short on cash. On the first date.

The creators seem earnest in keeping the content quasi-intelligent and humanitarian—they want Wolf Boy to kick down that cumbersome "freak factor category" and be seen as a normal guy.

Tips To Get Men More Into Foreplay

Tips To Get Men More Into Foreplay

Women have probably internally wondered for centuries why men devour sex like a two-bite appetizer instead of savoring it like a five-course meal. Let's be honest, more times than not a metaphorical bill has arrived before most women have even had a chance to finish buttering their bread. Do they think we don't want foreplay? Are they just super-selfish? Lazy? Take us for granted? Secretly inexperienced? Dr. Brian Parker's explanations and tips to get your fella more interested in foreplay.

How To Be A Good Wedding Guest Without Going Broke

Give your friends a gift that doesn't have an obvious monetary value. In other words, resist the urge to write them a check in the amount of $54.25 even if it shows you're down to your last dollar. Instead, seek out registry items that pack a good punch. A miniature crystal vase doesn't carry as much weight as say, an oversized overnight bag.
