Tomfoolery is about the guy's point of view. One guy's point of view, our Tom. He'll cover gossip, politics, media, gender issues, and, if he plays his cards right, sex. Feel free to comment.

Nobody Wants To Date A Smoker

It looks like smoking may be one of the biggest deal breakers out there. In fact, in a relatively small sample, it looks like even smokers would prefer not to date smokers. On top of that, most people can't quit smoking without some kind of aid. Not a great day to be a smoker.

How Much Should You Change For A Wedding?

Well, we're ankle deep in wedding season, with the real push starting Memorial Day, and Vera Wang Chung-ing it straight through Labor Day. And it seems like the biggest concern for most wedding parties is the pictures. Many brides, grooms and mothers of the bride are strict adherents to the saying that, while your marriage may not last forever, the photographs will. But while a wedding is a big deal, the days, weeks and decades after, it can be argued, are far more important.

Polygamy And Sex Parties: Private Or Public?

A Malaysian politician is in hot water after taking a second wife. While it wasn't against the law for him to engage in polygamy, he just had to run it by his first wife first. Her consent was required to inform the Sharia court that the second was OK. And a college professor in China is facing three and a half years in jail on grounds of "group licentiousness." Essentially, the educator was having orgies and group sex is bad for business in the People's Republic of China. It doesn't seem like privacy is much of a concern there, but how would you feel if your next-door neighbor was getting into those kind of shenanigans?


Are We Finished With Cougars?

The day of the cougar had just arrived, and already it's on shaky legs… or at least undergoing an evolution. As you likely know, a cougar is a woman approaching her middle years who dates a man at least ten years her junior. Many people have found the term "cougar" offensive, and have cited an immensely unfair double standard as older dudes (with money) seem to have their pick of the litter when it comes to mates. And now, Bill Lawrence says Cougar Town may change titles, Google won't advertise with various cougar sites and some health issues have arisen with older women dating younger men.

Couple Married By Robot In Japan

Before the next logical step of humans "romancing" and eventually marrying robots, we'll have them perform other jobs in and around love and relationship to become accustomed to human emotions and the nature of romance. Those jobs will initially include wedding cake icer, flower girl and priest. Our friends at The Frisky have it on good authority (including a video) that a Japanese couple has been married by a robot. Evidently, through hook or crook (but most likely articulated robo-arm) the robot actually brought the two together in the first place.
