Plus single women blaming men and the bread-winning woman
College Candy has a reader who got a good, swift metaphorical punch in the face. What happens when a Long-Distance Relationship falls apart when it goes local. Which aphorism should we use for this? Um, absence makes the heart grow fonder.
And now something for the ladies: Glo has a slideshow dedicated to what his bathing suit says about him. I'm guessing a tankini says, "I'm comin' home, mama."
Not sure if you heard about this, but Café Mom has a little insight about the Northwestern University sex toy demonstration.
Can too strong a knowledge of sex toys lead to too many orgasms? "Poppycock," you say? Good Men Project has it on authority that fewer orgasms could lead to increased sexual satisfaction. Quantity don't mean quality.
Some dudes are super tense about pleasing their partner (with their penises), my friends Em & Lo (EmAndLo.com) have an angle on what men's biggest sexual insecurities are. Accidentally passing gas didn't make the cut, hmmm.
A bad sexual experience may be just one of many reasons to dismiss a guy. Simone Grant (she's a pal) has an essay about giving a guy a chance even if something would normally be a deal-breaker.
On the topic of deal-breakers, Brienne Walsh (writing for the Huffington Post) takes on the notion that a single woman has only herself to blame for her loneliness. I suppose guys are probably somehow completely to blame.
One thing that guys can't take all the heat for is the gal who wonders why guys won't talk to her in a bar and is always on her mobile phone. Bad Online Dates has their resident bartender take on why cellphone Cecilia is leaving the bar solo.
Not going home with someone is turning epidemic, it appears. Per Nerve, 30% of people under 24 have never performed sexual intercourse in either the giving or receiving capacity. This late-bloomer isn't looking like such a toolshed. Is abstinence-only sex-ed to blame/ thank? And the Japanese aren't looking so odd: Japan's Waning Libido Causing Concern
At The Frisky, they have word about a recent study that seems just to confirm the wisdom of the song, "If You Want To Be Happy (For The Rest Of Your Life)." Apparently, guys who date out-of-their-league, unlike what rom-coms and CBS shows tell us, are destined to get dumped because an attractive gal has all of the power. The Frisky disagrees with the results of this study, I mean in what world are there that many attractive men?
And sometimes the woman does have all the power by way of her earning power. My Daily has a guide to being the breadwinning lady. I would, and have, been fine with out-earned by my gal. But where I draw the line is earning more, being taller, stronger, funnier and smarter. I don't want to date lady Vince Vaughn.
