    Energy for Parenting

    Let’s face it, parenting is hard. No matter what age you have children, you are most likely at a point in life where you’d easily prefer watching TV after work rather than playing on the swing set and running around in circles. Children don’t have the pressures of life that we do – careers, bills to pay, etc. so they are naturally inclined to enjoy playing often. Furthermore, children also have the luxury of being able to sleep much more than we get to, which helps too. Therefore, how can we meet them half way? How can we be good […]

    Bodily Changes During Pregnancy

    After all, this is a men’s magazine, so why are we writing about the P word?

  • Fine Dining Etiquette

    Fine Dining Etiquette

    Let’s face it, nobody wants to be the loud and obnoxious guy in the room grunting along as he eats his filet mignon.

Apart from the obvious etiquette considerations (i.e. farting and burping), there are also a few others that you may want to consider the next time you hit the town for a good culinary time.

  • The Benefits of Yoga

    The Benefits of Yoga

    Yoga is something that we men are naturally awful at, or perhaps it’s just me… Either way, yoga is a type of exercise that calls you to contort your body (and mind if you’re into that) into a variety of ways to increase your flexibility, strength, and balance. The truth is, men generally suffer in at least two out of three of these categories and as a result, yoga is a great exercise to master. If you don’t immediately see great reasons to improve these skills, think of how much flexibility, strength, and balance would improve your sex life… We […]

Most everyone has their headphones in and is blocking out the world while working hard on theĀ elliptical, the treadmill, the weight machine, etc. Despite this however, there is always this strange connection that is built between people as they glance around at each other without saying a word. Have you ever spent some time in one place surrounded by the same people and somehow without saying a word you feel like you know them? Sometimes that is what happens at the gym. Because of this, the gym is oddly […]

    5 Things Women Wish For in Bed

    To be a good lover, it is often required that you get into your woman’s head before getting into her. While stripping down naked and thrusting ’till dawn would suit most men, women often take more time and effort to turn on and please appropriately. For the majority of us, a happy woman means a happy man. We like to please our lady so that she keeps wanting more and doesn’t get bored. Many women find it hard to talk openly to their men about what they like in the bedroom, and truthfully, can we blame them? Often times we […]
