Valentine's Day is just over the horizon, and dudes will probably start thinking of gifts right around the 11th. While most ladies will try to read into what a fella means by a gift, I'm far more interested in what the presents have to say about the gift-giving guy. Here's what some very standard gifts reveal about your special guy. Read: Valentine's Day Traditions Around The World
Valentine's Day always sticks us somewhere in gift-giving limbo: how can we celebrate the guys we love without getting too sappy about it? Well, for starters, try some of these gifts on for size (no matter the size of your budget). Whether he's an outdoorsman or a music, meat or travel lover, we have something for every type of guy.
As YourTango partners up with Dear John to bring you even more content about love, we thought it worth showering the film's two stars—Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried as, respectively, an enlisted soldier and a college student in love—with some much-deserved adulation. We've admired Amanda since her turn as Karen in 2004's Mean Girls. She's since shone on the small screen as the oldest child of the polygamous Henrickson family in HBO's Big Love, and she fought (and kissed) a zombified Megan Fox in Jennifer's Body. In addition to her acting resume, Seyfried's always struck us as one of Hollywood's more intelligent and grounded starlets.
Men think women are hard to figure out, but the female set spends countless hours pondering, reading about, and brainstorming with girlfriends to answer the perpetual question: what do guys really want? YourTango went directly to the source: we polled real men on their favorite gifts of all time, and suggested affordable and luxury options based on their most-loved presents.
Sure, we've all read about how romantic or commitment-shy each zodiac sign is—but do you know what a person's sign says about how they feel about sex? Who likes role-playing and who likes a bed of roses? Who needs a long warm-up session and who's ready for take-off after a peck on the cheek? With the help of Phyllis Vega, author of Erotic Astrology: The Sex Secrets of Your Horoscope Revealed, we found out what your—or your love interest's—sign indicates about sexual style, turn-offs and turn-ons. Plus, find out which signs are sexually compatible. Written by Justine van der Leun for AOL Health. More from AOL Health:
My husband and I rolled the dice, shuffled the cards and broke all the rules to bring you a roundup of the 10 hottest games for couples and group. Among the dozens of activities we reviewed, we found that the best were usually the ones with the simplest rules and the fewest playing pieces (which aren't very fun to find in your sheets). These romps made it easiest to get down to business, which after all, is the real objective. I've rated the fun and sexiness of each game on a scale of 1 – 5.
Complex magazine's recent list of hot women in Hollywood who are actually funny (their phrasing, not ours) inspired us to highlight the funny blokes out there who are actually good-looking. While most of us lady folk are wise to the fact that laughs last longer than looks, we still appreciate a side of smoking (hot) with our joking. Hey, if supermodels were hilarious, they'd be on this list. As is, here are men who make us sweat with their perfect combo of humor and handsomeness.

It was only natural since it's National Masturbation Month that we'd celebrate by browsing the Internet looking for a little upgrade. It's been a while, but we were sort of curious to see what the kids are rubbing themselves with these days. Not too much has changed. There's plenty run-of-the-mill pocket rockets and generic dildos to be had, but if you dig a bit below the surface you'll find some curious gadgets that err on the side of painful, campy, awkward or a kooky mixture of the three. Now, we're big girls here. A sex toy can hardly scare us. Rather, let's just say we're a bit jilted and weary with a renewed interest in gaurding our private areas.
