Ladies, let your pubic hair grow. Allow it to run riot like a wild, verdant jungle. Shave not your delicate triangle of womanly power. Not all dudes demand a shorn 'gina. I know that many do, and I apologize on behalf of those creeps. And it is creepy – I can't help but think a lot of dudes drool over the bare look because it's infantilizing. This might not be a conscious kink, but it's true. I'm not so into the pre-pubescent look. In fact, I'm all about '70s porno bush.
The prejudice of gingerism is really beginning to color the English character. Major advertisers have recently be chastised for their blatantly anti-redhead spots. Underneath the freckles, luminous fair skin and red-tinged locks, there are beautiful, thinking and feeling people, England. Get to really know a ginger before you make up your mind.
You'll never see a dude turn to another dude and ask, "Do I look fat in these pants?" But that doesn't mean men are invulnerable to insecurities, no matter how much we'd like to think so. Women are upfront about their fears, doubts, and self-esteem. I used to think it was just compulsive gabbiness, a quirk of the fairer sex. But, in fact, it is an admirable coping mechanism that's even a little bit courageous. That said, I'll sack up and admit that I've spent a lot of my life feeling like a fatty, a chubasaurus, half-man and half-marshmallow.
A reader wrote in asking me why most men are "fascinated" with redheads. In this instance, I think "fascinated" is a nice way of saying "obsessed." She admitted to being a redhead, and, therefore, the object of such ardor. She's asked these men why they are so drawn to the crimson-haired, and the best she ever got out of them was "Redheads iz just hawt, yo!" This is true, but it is not the whole truth.
Last December, I briefly dated a guy who was on the hairy side (c'mon now, it was winter, and it was cold!). While I think that a bit of hair on a guy's chest and back is sexy, lots of hair -- we're talking fur -- is NOT. What I've found, however, is that some women LOVE hairy men.
For years, I've heard horror stories of the Brazilian bikini wax. Getting down on all fours, raising a leg like a dog peeing on a tree, spreading my butt cheeks to allow a complete stranger to apply hot wax in the most private crevices of my body—these didn't seem like things I needed to rush out and experience (at least not in public) ... Summoning my courage, I decided that it was time to shed light on the truth behind the Brazilian.
When you picture a military couple, one going off to fight a war, and the other taking upon the role of the stay at home parent, society typically envisions the man going off into battle and the woman staying home to raise the children. But with nearly 20 percent of the Air Force consisting of women, men are quickly learning the challenges of being a stay at home parent. And with the military, dads aren't forced to take care of their children on their own from 9 to 5 but rather for months at a time while their wives are away on leave.
I edited Maxim for four years, and let me tell you, we knew everything there was to know about guys. Like this: All guys really care about is girls. Our sex and relationship pieces tried to break down the great female mystery, and they were consistently the highest-rated articles in the magazine aside from, well, the pictorials. And we learned a lot ourselves. Here are nine interesting nuggets of wisdom I gleaned from my job presenting women to men.
Many women don't have orgasms from intercourse alone, hence the plethora of gels, shots and tips to try and make it happen. For those who've tried to no avail, that their chemical makeup is to blame may or may not provide relief. Of course, an increased level of testosterone is not the only factor. Painful conditions like vulvodynia make sex, let alone orgasm, virtually impossible for some women.
Today on Shine a user posted an interesting problem. She has long blond hair that she loves and is proud of, however her boyfriend has told her he prefers brunettes. This stresses her out because she and her sweetie are getting serious and talking marriage, and she's concerned. "If I am going to spend the rest of my life with one man in the whole world, I want that one man to be the most attracted to the features that I have," she writes. When she brought it up with her man he said that her hair color isn't important, but she's still stuck on the issue: "Why spend my life with a guy who is more attracted to a feature that I don't have? It really makes me feel bad when I think about it."
