Could McDonald’s Fries be the Answer to Baldness

Could McDonald's Fries be the Answer to Baldness

A new study claims that McDonald’s salty, iconic fries could curb or at least help with hair loss and male baldness, according to Japanese researchers.

The study claims that it’s not the salt or potato but the oil that the fries are cooked in are the active ingredient. Apparently, some miracle method contains a chemical called dimethylpolysiloxane which is…you guessed it in the oil of those delicious fries at one of the world’s most-recognizable fast food joints.

A little known fact is that dimethylpolysiloxane is also found in silly putty, breast implants and that caulk you use on the tub.

Before you run out and start chowing down on some fries this study has only been tested on rats and President Donald Trump is on a steady diet of McDonald’s cuisine and still has to fight hair loss and maintain his quiff with the prescription drug Propecia. And making matters worse was an embarrassing video that surfaced this week of President Trump’s extent of hair loss. 

In fact, I have fought the good fight of male pattern baldness and whether I should throw in the towel on my hair. After a month on Rogaine, I found out that I would rather be bald than not be able to sexually perform at my peak. You can read the whole Rogaine story here

Unless you have the metabolism to support it, avoid eating shitty fries on a daily basis or you could be battling baldness and a big gut. For now, watch for the rats staying on or leaving the sinking ship.

5 Really Random Things that are a Turn On for Women  

5 Really Random Things that are a Turn On for Women

Last week, I decided to have a Netflix and Chill night with my girlfriend and I was totally freaked out after she grabbed me right when I walked in the door. Nothing freaky about that outside of the fact that I hadn’t shaved in over a week and had more like a 10-o-clock shadow and I was wearing sweatpants and a plan white t-shirt. I also hadn’t showered since I left the gym 12 hours earlier.

Normally, I would work hard to get her in the mood. We are talking a hot shower, a close shave, a shirt (with at least one button) and some jeans. I might even meet her at the door with a glass of wine. I’ve even considered answering the door naked because that would drive me wild if she did.

Turns out, most women don’t want to know or see how it’s hangin’, according to studies. Here is a list of what actually turns on women and it’s not what you think. Like most things with women, it’s the polar opposite of what you expect it to be.

1. Hands—Yes, women do care about a man’s hands. In particular, they really care about the length of a man’s ring finger. If their ring finger is longer than their index finger they are more likely to get laid, according to one Men whose ring fingers are longer than their index fingers are seen as better bets by women, one study found. Small hands? Yup, you may have a harder time having sex.

2. Don’t shave—Putting your razor away for around 10-days (based on average growth rate in men) produces the right amount of stubble to drive her crazy. However, she still cares if its properly groomed, so don’t go Grizzly Adams. Here’s a handy guide for beard styles and grooming. https://manscapeblog.com/2017/07/18/summer-beard-style-guide-for-men-2017/

3. Scent of a man—ditch the heavy cologne or manly body wash. Women are more turned on by the smell of a combo of Good-n-Plenty candy and cucumber. However, here is a guide of what you should eat that would make guys smell attractive.

4. Timing is everything—believe it or not there is a better time of day to have sex. One study claims it’s 3:00pm, so if the mood strikes you late afternoon squeeze it in!

5. Be nice—if you ever needed motivation to volunteer for a charity this would be it. Women that witness men being kind to others or even furry creatures is a major turn-on.

Women Less Stressed When Smelling Their Partner’s Scent on Clothing

Women Less Stressed When Smelling Their Partner's Scent on Clothing

If one of your New Year’s Resolutions for 2018 was to be less stressed out on a daily basis, then you will want to get your hands on your partner’s laundry.

That’s right. According to new research released by the University of British Columbia, smelling an item of clothing such as a t-shirt or a hoodie actually drops your stress levels.

The impact was especially positive for women that buried their noses in one of their partner’s t-shirts. Apparently, it was the natural scent of their partner and not necessarily that hoodie you wore to a smoky bar or out to a hibachi restaurant.

In fact, the study factored in 96 heterosexual couples and the guys were asked to wear a clean t-shirt for a 24-hour period without applying any cologne or deodorant. More importantly, they were also asked not to smoke or ingest foods such as say…hot peppers or any foods that would change their natural odor.

The t-shirts were then frozen to seal in the scent. Study participants were then put through some of life’s most stressful situations such as a job interview. Thawed out t-shirts from their partner and a stranger were given to them to test hormone levels while experiencing stress.

When a woman smelled the shirt of her partner, her stress levels dropped significantly but when the t-shirt of a stranger was introduced her levels skyrocketed.

So the next time she complains about you leaving your t-shirt on the floor, ask her to put it on and let the stress melt away. Just kidding–show her this blog. 

How to Avoid Being “That Guy” in the Weight Room or the Gym

pexels-photo-703009

I have a good friend that is pretty hot and for good reason, she’s a personal trainer. We often sit down over beers and bitch about our jobs. Well, I’m drinking the beer and she’s sipping on some low-carb libation but I digress.

This time of year also known as the New Year’s Resolution Rush gives her plenty of material to dump during our bitch fests. She also tends to throw back a few more than usual.

The gyms are not just crowded as hell but they are more crowded with people that usually spend more time at the smoothie bar than raising one with weights on it.

There is quite a bit of douchbag behavior happening on a normal day at the gym so use these tips from a professional and don’t be that guy.

Classes.  Before I go further, we are not talking Crossfit. That’s a whole different blog for a different time. We’re talking HIIT classes, spin or the kind of classes happening in tight spaces somewhere off of the main club’s floor.

One rule of thumb: avoid the front spots in any class. While these spots are not officially claimed by regulars they do belong to that crew and my hot trainer friend has literally witnessed a fist fight over who was supposed to have the bike in the front.

Also, don’t stroll in right as the class begins. If you are new to the class the instructor likes to meet newbies and you run the risk of a proper warm-up and machine calibration. Give yourself an extra 10 minutes to get ready and size up the rest of the class. Which brings me to the machines.

Machines.  Seriously, don’t be a sweat hog and park your ass on a treadmill for more than 30 minutes if there is a wait. Only have 30 minutes? Take it as an opportunity to cross train until the gym empties out after the end of February. Or whenever the resolution rush dies down. Everyone’s trying to get a rockhard bod and abs. And for the love of all that is holy, clean the damn machines even if you aren’t dripping in sweat.

Weights.  Don’t be a jerk and drop the weights. It’s loud, disruptive and can do damage to the gym itself. We get it—you can lift your ass off but it’s still a straight-up douchey move.

Germ factor.  Adding to the jam-packed environment at any gym in January is the germ factor. More body odor, more sweat and more ways to catch whatever strain of flu is being shared in small spaces. If you are too sick to workout then don’t. Take the time off to let your body fight getting better. Given that colds take around three weeks to go away, it’s not pratical to skip the gym that long. Instead, take the time to wash your hands frequently, wipe down surfaces that you have touched and prevent the further spread of fluids.

When all else fails, apply The Golden Rule. Need some additional inspiration? Check out these workout tips on getting rock hard abs.

The Worst Holiday Gifts You Can Give a Guy

pexels-photo-45055

I was recently at one of those white elephant gift exchanges where you open wrapped presents such as a Chia pet, The Clapper or basically any item that falls under the “As Seen on TV” category.

Naturally, I ended up with some crappy whiskey stones that I already had at home and never get used. The conversation took a turn towards the worst and most intentioned gifts that we guys at the party have ever received.

I felt compelled to share this list as a lesson to all the women out there to steer clear of these items when gift giving.

Handmade “love/favor” coupons.  First off, these coupons are never redeemable. Seriously, just try using the “free back massage at any time” coupons. I promise it won’t lead to a happy ending.

Books.  It goes without saying that self-help books are especially horrible but this goes for novels too. One of the worst gifts I have ever received was a book called, for one more day by the author, Mitch Albom. It was technically a guilt gift from my mother, not my girlfriend but it certainly wasn’t meant to bring me any pleasure. 

Ancestry/DNA kit.  The marketing departments for DNA testing kits seem to think that finding out that you’re just a standard Heinz 57 American is a great gift for the holiday season. Leave those kinds of gifts to their own personal sleuthing and interests and or some random aunt in his family.

Hair Trimmers.  Any hair removal system is just a bad idea. Although, one of the guys confessed that he actually uses the nose hair trimmer that his fiance bought him two years ago, but he hated getting it and already had one. Just let us do the hair trimmer shopping on our own.

Underwear.  NO, not the sexy kind that you get on Valentine’s Day that turns her on. No, I’m talking your standard 5-pack of cotton briefs, boxers or boxer briefs. It’s just a big buzzkill and it’s hard to hide your disappointment when you pick up the wrapped package and immediately identify its contents. Plus, most guys are hoping you didn’t buy them a small.

Bathrobes.  Unless it’s on our wish list and we specifically ask for it…don’t buy a new bathrobe for us. Chances are if we haven’t gotten one for ourselves, we prefer air drying in the buff or just want to wrap a towel around us. This goes double for towels.

Stationary.  No matter how fancy it is, unless he specifically asked for it, skip this bland gift. That’s all.

Tacky ties.  Bowties have made a fashion comeback, but unless he specifically asks for a set or a new one and you know him well enough, just don’t bother getting one. If your guy wants one bad enough he will pick up the snowman tie for himself.

Coffee mug.  I don’t care if your man consumes 10 cups of coffee every morning, he doesn’t want a coffee mug that says, “world’s greatest…”

Guys are NOT Being Big Babies When They Get Sick Suggests Study

Guys are NOT Being Big Babies When They Get Sick Suggests Study

Ask most guys how they feel when they catch a cold and they will describe it as being more intense for them than their female counterparts. Ask a woman and they would describe guys as “big babies” when they get sick. Sorry ladies turns out they might be right.

Commonly and not-so-affectionately known as the “man flu” is a phenomenon when a guy gets sick and seems to suffer more than a woman, according to Dr. Kyle Sue.

Dr. Sue arrived at this conclusion by compiling a mix of prior studies, a little science, and a little speculation. “I do think that the research does point towards men having a weaker immune response when it comes to common viral respiratory infections and the flu,” said Dr. Sue in a British Medical Journal article.

Apparently, guys hang onto those viruses a bit longer and even experience symptoms that are more intense than women. So, what’s the culprit and what makes guys different when it comes to the flu? Testosterone, of course! Well, at least that what some lab rats have suggested.

Guys can also expect to be hospitalized with the common cold or flu while women at the same age have an easier time fighting it at home.

The study’s results also focused on the length of time guys would also be sick which can last TWICE as long as women.

Some minor details that might have been overlooked didn’t take into account the overall health of men and women at the time of illness. Instead, it looked at the same type of viruses and the age of men and women with the flu.

Dr. Sue (who happens to be a man as well) admits that more studies need to be conducted before the “big babies” debate can finally be put to bed. Either way, go easy on your man when he gets sick—testosterone and our cave man ways still get in the way.

Singles Have More Sex During the Holiday Season According to Trojan

Singles Have More Sex During the Holiday Season According to Troja

Some 60% of sexually active singles will be hooking up during the holiday season, according to a study released by prophylactic giant, Trojan. It’s hard not to take the release of this new research seriously considering the source.

The data was based on 1,000 responses from singles between the ages of 18 and 24 having sex on a regular basis. Of those polled, two out of five plan to squeeze in a hookup with someone they don’t know while one-third plan on reaching out to an ex for sex during the holidays while visiting family back home.

This means that things are going to get hot in the surroundings of Dawson’s Creek posters and soccer trophies. We’ve all been there, but this next bit of feedback is a little odd.  A whopping 34% of those surveyed would not be thwarted from having sex while the whole family is over for grandma’s strudel and carols.

So, where are they finding these hookups? Thanks to technology, 73% will text or message them and 50% are using a dating app like Tinder.

However, what isn’t odd is what got these singles in the mood—watching romantic movies while curled up by a warm fire. If you need some inspiration, here is a list of 8 Netflix and Chill movies

Thankfully, 80% of respondents also claimed that they will be practicing safe sex or at least see the value in using one.

What’s your holiday hookup story?
