From padded bras to uncomfortable footwear, what won't we do to get a man?
When it comes to wooing the opposite sex, men have it easy. As far as I know, they approach you and whip out the pick-up line. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.
Women on the other hand, play a whole different game. Sometimes it seems as if our entire existence is based on impressing a guy. And it's exhausting. We don't think about it often (or we argue that we're doing these things for ourselves as much as for the men), but when you stop and take notice of all the things we do to woo the gentlemen, well, it's absurd.
If your man prefers a bikini wax as below-the-belt grooming, should he be the one to pay?
In The Hairpin's Ask a Dude column recently, an advice-seeker brought up this hairy situation: who should pay for your bikini wax? She thinks the man asking for it should, writing "I always think guys should be paying for the Brazilians if they want their ladies to have them. Is that insane?"
Over the last couple of decades, Americans have been grooming more and more. I'm guessing that skimpier outfits have led women to remove more hair. And, somewhere along they way, us dudes were convinced that we needed to have hair removed, so we agreed to some waxing. But manscaping has possibly spun out of control with the male Brazilian wax. Is this something that we really need?
He mentioned that she should groom "down there." But was that just an excuse for him to split?
On our first date, we ended up making out in a bar on the Lower East Side. Our second date, I invited him up to my apartment. Maybe I was moving too fast, but I didn't care. After a tough breakup, I wanted to let my hair down. Which, I discovered over the next few weeks, wasn't Tobey's thing. One night I mentioned it jokingly, and he said, "I don't mind doing that at all. If a woman is well-groomed."
From heavy breathing to lip-licking, some things are sexy from only one gender.
Women and men are wildly different. Ladies are soft, smell nice and are purty. Most dudes are lumpy/coarse, smell like motor oil and bear meat and are generally utilitarian in terms of looks. Because of your sensuality, delicateness and otherworldliness, there are a handful of sexy things you can totally get away with doing. But it is spectacularly weird and decidedly unsexy when we try the same moves.
Celebrity pubic hair: How do Jennifer Aniston, Sienna Miller and Kate Winslet style it?
Earlier this month, Jennifer Love Hewitt told Lopez Tonight that she once decorated her ladygarden with Swarovski Crystals. Normally, we'd say, "TMI," but after hearing about other celebrities' pubic hair preferences, we're not particularly surprised:
Sorry guys, some gifts are more embarrassing than sexy.
Some might say a lacy teddy or a feather tickler is more of a gift for him than for me—selfish, even. But I love sexy holiday gifts. Not only am I a little greedy when it comes to my lingerie drawer, but I love the reminder that my guy thinks I'm a sex goddess! That said, I get why some guys are afraid to shop for lingerie. The best sexy-gift shopping occurs through interpreting another person's fantasies; the gift should really reflect the way the woman sees herself in bed, not the way the man sees his lady. If she's classy, then don't go klassy. In my mind, I'm burlesque star Dita Von Teese in bed, so I'll be bewildered, to say the least, by a present in the style of Boob Job McGee, Tara Reid.

We all change when we get into a relationship. And Tina Fey was a late bloomer.
One brave woman poses for a sculpture that shows there is beauty in all bits.
British artist Jamie McCartney is working on a sculpture called "Design a Vagina." Using only volunteers, he is making casts of 200 women's vaginas, and displaying them together in 40 block panels. He wants to show people that where vaginas are concerned, "the variety of shapes is endlessly fascinating, empowering and comforting." This is the story of how, for one of those volunteers, his message really hit home.
Comedienne Brooke Van Poppelen implores men to think twice before shaving their crotches.
Manscaping, as a trend, may have hit its final plateau. Evidently, the grooming trend has gone to the point that some women are actually imploring men to let things grow a bit rather than shaving all of their pubic hair clean off. Let us know what you think.
