5 Ways to Boost Your Libido With Minimal Effort 

5 Ways to Boost Your Libido With Minimal Effort 

Having trouble keeping it up or just want to strengthen your current longevity? You don’t have to do anything drastic. With these simple tips, you will be “strong like bull” in no time. 

  1. Masturbate. See, told you it would be easy. Masturbation doesn’t make you blind but it’s great practice for sex. Just follow Frankie’s advice and relax without rushing to maximum longevity. 

2. Knock off the bad habits. If you are still smoking or drinking in excess you are not doing yourself any favors in the bedroom. Smoking constricts blood vessels which work against that erection. If you like red wine it can be helpful for circulation just take it easy and keep it to a minimum. 

3. Sunshine. Getting a little sun boosts the production of melatonin which could lead to an increase in your sex drive. Like alcohol consumption, keep your intake to a minimum. 

4. Take your vitamins. Vitamins and supplements are a great way to stay healthy with the added benefit of lasting longer in bed. Vitamin B3 gives you energy while Vitamin B6 help boost sperm production. Wanna know what other vitamins you should be taking? Here is a blog on 6 vitamins you should be taking to help increase your stamina.

5. De-stress. Don’t feel like you need to run out try a yoga class (although that wouldn’t hurt) but finding ways to destress is essential to any guy’s performance. Lifting weights or biking is a healthy approach and can only help. 

Before starting any new diet or exercise program always consult with your physician first. 

 

4 Basic Manscaping Tips Every Guy Should Know

4 Basic Manscaping Tips Every Guy Should Know

If you haven’t googled “pineapple penis” I’ll save you the trouble. It’s the latest manscaping trend and basically involves shaving all the hair off the base of your penis and letting it grow until it gets prickly like a pineapple. Not sure why this is a thing. Personally speaking, that phase of growth is pretty uncomfortable and leads to lots of ball scratching and adjusting of my junk.

If a pineapple penis is not your thing, you still should manscape mostly because women appreciate it more which leads to more sex. 

For those of you new to manscaping or those that are not sure they were ever doing it right here are 4 basic tips to scape your junk. 

Tip 1:  Don’t use products that would cause red bumps, itching, or anything else that would lead to the kind of itching associated with crabs or an STD. For instance, don’t use the shaving cream you would use on your face to shave your shaft. Avoid mineral oil, heavy scents, and “cooling” or “soothing” products which contain eucalyptus and could burn. 

Tip 2. Exfoliating goes a long way in preventing some nasty-ass in-grown hairs. Just like your face, you will want to open up your pores with steam or warm water. The easiest and best way is to just do it while you are in the shower. Just make sure you are not using regular body soap and an exfoliating soap that contains volcanic lava rock. 

Tip 3:  Don’t be tempted to use the same razor that you use on your face. DON’T DO IT.  For the sake of safety, use an electric shaver and clean and maintain the blades properly.  After all, ball hair is a different kind of hair than facial hair. Plus, there is a bacteria issue. Check out the manscaped set that comes with an electric razor and deodorant for your balls.

Tip 4:  There is no shortage of videos out there that show you the proper technique for getting and maintaining the most desirable manscape design. Take the time to watch these videos and follow them before trying it first. I mean…you don’t want to end up with cactus penis nevermind a pineapple one. Here’s a video to get you started.

There is no wrong way as far as how you want to design, fluff or trim your pubic hair just don’t be in a hurry and follow the above basic tips. 

Combat Hair Loss and Balding With These Easy Tips 

Combat Hair Loss and Balding With These Easy Tips 

A couple of years back I decided to do something about my receding hairline. Ok, fine…I’m balding and tired of losing my hair. In a moment of desperation, I decided to try Rogaine and things didn’t go well. You can read all about my month on Rogaine in this blog. Needless to say, it was not an option after some unwanted side effects.

After a recent haircut appointment, I made the decision to ask the gal that cuts my hair for advice on not losing any more of my already-receding hairline. I have been going to the same person for three years for my semi-weekly trims so I knew she would be honest.

She offered the following tips that are minimal and help keep that balding spot from growing. I’m willing to give these tips a shot.

—Wash your hair on a regular basis with a mild shampoo.   A clean scalp helps prevent dandruff and infections in your hair follicles. However, the kind of shampoo you use makes a difference. Mild shampoos do not contain fragrances or crazy chemicals that can screw up your scalp. Here’s a mild shampoo that is reasonably priced and will do the trick.

—Avoid brushing your hair while it is wet.     I have always brushed my hair while it is wet but this is a big “no-no” because your hair is weakest when it’s soaked. And here’s the second thing I’ve been doing wrong—brushing my hair too much. That’s right, hang on to more hair by running your fingers through it instead.

—Your hair does not like excessive sweating.    The term “helmet head” or “hat head” is not a myth, it’s real and can do real damage to your hair. Hats or helmets allow that sweat to make a nice home in your hair shaft which leads to weakened hair shafts and greater loss. Guys with dandruff totally get this in the summertime. If you have the balls to wear one, consider a bandana or a scarf to keep the sweat away. 

—Lose the man bun.    Guys with longer locks that ear their hair in a ponytail or guys with enough hair to pull a man bun may want to rethink that dude updo. Pulling and tearing at the hair follicles leads to less hair. 

—Check your meds.    You may be taking some medications that are actually causing you to lose your hair. Do an inventory, check the symptoms and side effects and talk to your doctor about other options or at least be aware. Just be sure to talk to your doctor about it first. 

—Dry naturally.    Hairdryers are convenient but if you can switch up your routine and allow your hair to dry, it will go a long way. The more heat you use, the more the proteins in your hair are damaged. If you can, air-dry your hair instead. Dry towels are also not recommended. 

—Scalp massages.    Not only do scalp massages feel awesome but they also help stimulate your hair follicles. Apparently, you can also rub in some essential oil, green tea and even garlic juice (not sure if it’s worth the stench) to help get your hair to grow a bit more. 

—Vitamins and supplements.    Vitamin E boosts blood circulation (which could also help with your endurance in bed) and Vitamin B helps you keep your hair color.

Guys Confess All the Nasty Rituals They Do in Private on Viral Reddit Thread 

Guys Confess All the Nasty Rituals They Do in Private on Viral Reddit Thread I’m a big fan of trending news especially ones that don’t involve politics like today’s story about a downright gross things guys do when they are alone. Admittedly, I have a few of my own rituals but here are the takeaways from the Reddit thread. If there are any women out there reading this, I hate to tell you that most of these rituals are true and most guys have done them. 

If you’ve got the stomach here are the best responses:

Eating while on the toilet (going number 2, of course).   The thread actually starts out with a Reddit user complaining that his brother was scarfing down a bowl of cereal while taking a dump. I personally have never done this but it’s not uncommon either. One of my roommates was famous for eating sandwiches while on the throne. 

Smell tests.   Yes, this particular ritual got quite a reaction with several guys weighing on doing a smell check of their armpits, behind their ears or nether regions. I can certainly relate to this and as a courtesy to my girlfriend and others, I do a quick check to make sure I don’t smell like a cricket cage. In fact, I keep ball spray on hot standby in case I need it in a pinch. I also like to use a product called, Dude Wipes. What I don’t get is that some guys reportedly found their own smells soothing. 

Peeing in the shower.   Not only do I do this on occasion but it really does save time. I am not about to hop out mid-shower to take a leak. My girlfriend also does this and neither one of us are bothered by it at all. But I can see where some germaphobes might go crazy over it. 

Blowing out snot while in the shower.  One Reddit user also admitted to doing full-on snot rockets while in the shower. I’ve done that a few times during higher allergy seasons and when I had a cold. 

Smelling your own flatulence.   I think this goes for both men and women. Although, I think most guys are more open about owning up to it and the true enjoyment of smelling your own. When I asked my girl about it she wouldn’t fess up to enjoying them. 

Peeing in the sink while brushing your teeth.   I do this as well but not on a regular basis. Shhhhh, don’t tell my GF. It’s bad enough she knows I piss in the shower. 

The explicit Reddit thread gets even odder and more disgusting even for me but feel free to check it out or chime in.

Guys Still Expect Women to Keep a Clean Home Says New Studies

Guys Still Expect Women to Keep a Clean Home Says New Studies

Not one but three recently-published studies found that men still want women to keep a clean house but the same is not expected of men. 

After (admittedly) only skimming all three studies, I wanted to share my perspective as a guy that keeps a tidy house and why I still hold women to the same standard and can’t understand why women don’t do the same to men.

Let’s start by going way back to the mid-90s. At the time I was still in college and busting my ass waiting tables at night. One evening after finishing my shift I picked up a girl that had what I call, “catnip.” She wasn’t pretty but she had a sexy vibe about her, a great figure and was super uninhibiated—all turn-ons for guys. 

One drink led to another and I took her back to my place. I hadn’t planned on getting laid that night so my apartment was not picked-up but not filthy either. I might have had some dishes in the sink and maybe a pair of dirty boxers on the floor but nothing had really accumulated. 

However, the piece of shit car that I drove her home that night was so clean you could eat off the floor. I remember her asking for a drink and asking to slip off to use the bathroom. As I fumbled through my nightstand trying to locate a condom, she emerged from the bathroom wearing nothing but a smile. It was a night of some of the best sex I have ever had. 

This, of course, led to another hook-up night. This time, she picked me up in her ride—a glorified sports car for the working class, the Geo Storm. 

I opened the door only to be hit with the pungent odor of what smelled like cat piss. But if that wasn’t enough to shock me, the floor of the car could not be seen because it was covered in compressed piles of old convenience-store cups, fast-food chain wrappers, and petrified french fries. The cloth seats also had so many stains that it was impossible to figure out the actual color. Assuming those stains might contain urine, I asked for a napkin to sit on. She obliged and fished out a stack of napkins from her glove compartment which appeared to have deep scratches from a rabid animal. 

The backseat was even worse. When I asked her how long she had had the car, she said it was less than a year old. I was already turned off before we even got to her apartment. My mind raced to wonder how nasty her place would be if her car looked like this. My suspicions and fears were confirmed.  In a metal cage in the corner, her wildlife aggressively tried to escape its confines to either attack me or more likely, take another piss. 

Turns out, she had a pet raccoon and the smell in her place matched the smell in her car.  Like her car, every surface was covered in discarded take-out boxes which made sense since she ran out of clean dishes and cookware which sat in the sink with the memory of old meals still stuck to its insides. 

This was not my proudest moment but while she readied herself in the bathroom, I bolted out of there, tracked down a payphone and called a buddy for a ride. 

I’m sure my actions hurt her enough to share the story with her friends over coffee or a cocktail but I was seriously concerned that I was going to catch an STD (thankfully, we had used a condom earlier). This is an extreme case but from that day forward—a made it a point to never date a woman that keeps a filthy car and to make sure that I never let my place get that disgusting either. I mean, if that was enough to turn me off to amazing sex, then I wondered how women would feel about that dirty pair of boxers or the fact that I hadn’t given two craps about simply rinsing food from my dishes.

To this day, I am a bit of a neat freak and I do most of the cleaning. My girlfriend appreciates this immensely and it makes our relationship much better.

Women should be holding men to a higher standard of cleanliness than they do and men should not have to feel like dickheads for not hooking up with a girl that doesn’t have enough sense to run a dishwasher or keep her floors clean enough that you can see the original color. 

Women (and this is just my opinion) typically have a harder time living with dirty boxers on the floor or whiskers clinging to toothpaste droppings in the sink, but you may have to start leaving it there for us guys to clean. Believe me, we will eventually cave because no one wants to look at that crap long term. 

As for guys, it’s time we all held ourselves to the same standard of cleanliness that is expected of our girlfriends and wives because no one wants to live like it’s Joe’s Apartment. 

In fact, another study published last year found that guys that bother to help out with household chores and grocery shopping had better sex and that’s a study we can all get behind.

Get Six-Pack Abs in Time for Summer With These Two Moves 

Get Six-Pack Abs in Time for Summer With These Two Moves 

You can’t sell tickets to the “gun show” without the six-pack to go with it. There is still time to get your abs ready for the summer and there is another good reason to get work on them—it boosts your overall workout performance. 

One of the most neglected of all ab muscles is the transversus abdominis but one of the most important because it stabilizes your lower back which helps with posture and back pain. Its also the deepest muscle in your abs and will also help with those deadlifts. 

The good news is that simply adding these exercises will help you work more than just your obliques and upper abs. 

First move: Planks.

If you are not used to doing these or don’t normally incorporate those into your workout it’s important to do them properly first rather than how long you hold one. Proper form starts with drawing your belly button towards the direction of your spine. Next, you will want to keep your hips lifted while engaging your core and your quad muscles. A good rule of thumb to avoid any neck pain or strain is to hold your chin approximately six inches from the front of your body. Here is a handy video demonstration on how-to-do the perfect plank.

Second move: The “dead bug.”

This effective exercise is probably a staple in your girlfriend’s pilates class but it’s really just another type of a hollow hold exercise technique. You start by laying on your back with your knees bent at 90 degrees and your feet in the air. Raise your hands in the air, and keeping your back pressed to the floor (eliminating as much or all space between your lower back and the ground), extend your right leg in front of you and allow your left to move over your head making sure to alternate with the opposite hand and leg motion. Start with 15 reps and work your way up from there. Check out this video on proper dead bug form. 

Last but not least remember to never incorporate a new diet or exercise plan without consulting your physician.

Boost Your Sex Drive With These 5 Foods

5 Foods That Boost Your Sex Drive

You are what you eat and if you are looking to perform better in the bedroom then you will want to start by eating these 5 foods.

5 foods to boost your sex drive

Celery.  There has been quite a bit of buzz surrounding celery juice and for good reason. The long, green stalky veggie contains androsterone and adrostenal which work to give you your sexy back or at least feel that way.

5 foods to boost your sex drive

Spinach/kale. Dark, green leafy veggies are not just good for your overall health but are chock-full of vitamin A which helps keep your hormonal balance in check. If you are like me and hate kale feel free to go with a spinach salad or smoothie instead.

5 foods to boost your sex drive

Dark chocolate. It won’t be hard to tempt your date or partner to eat some dark chocolate especially when it contains phenylethylamine. Phenylethylamine contains an endorphin that creates the same kind of high you feel when you believe you are in love.

5 foods to boost your sex drive

Blueberries/strawberries. Berries are good for your health and sex drive. Blueberries contain antioxidants that are amazing for your circulation which travels “all over your body.” As for the strawberries, the benefits are also plentiful. Strawberries are packed full of vitamin c and potassium and more importantly, omega-3 fatty acids which keep your cardiovascular system healthy which means you can last longer.

5 foods to boost your sex drive

Nuts. No pun intended but the whole nut family contains a plethora of fatty acids which boost endorphins and dilate those blood vessels which in turn, kicks up blood flow to your penis. You’re welcome.

Recent Study Focuses on the Sex Lives of Men and Women Over 50

Recent Study Shows Focuses on Sex and Men and Women Over 50

Most of the sex surveys involving lots of sexual partners leave out those over 50 years-old. Which is why this recent survey from British researchers was an interesting take and long overdue.

The research dug deep into the lives of over 7,000 men and women over 50 and the results are somewhat surprising. Let’s start with the more obvious findings that are also stereotypically on point. 

Guys tend to have more sexual partners during their lifetime than women. And guys with more money or higher on the economic ladder and especially over 50, tend to have even more partners. But there was also good news for the broke guys out there. The study also pointed to the lower 20% of economic status with a higher amount of sexual partners. 

Sex experts attribute the amount of sex and partners more affluent older men have to a life with less of the stress that life brings for younger and middle-class men. For the guys that are broke, they may not be able to buy a Rolex but they can still have sex. 

Now, onto the ladies and it’s good news for us guys. White, bisexual women that stayed fit and didn’t deal with the usual physical afflictions associated with being out-of-shape had a higher number of sexual partners. 

I mean, if they are hitting the gym on a regular basis, women and men are more likely to have a better body and know it. And of course, regular exercise leads to a better sex life as well. 

Bad news for the married people out there with kids still living at home. We all have or know a divorced friend that shows up in the office every Monday with a story about a hookup on Match. The study also supports that it’s not just a made-up story. Men and women that are divorced never walked down the aisle and are single have slept with more people. 

Now, I am not condoning this but your friends that drink their asses off and were smokers at one time, also had more sexual partners. That being said, I will turn 50 one day and it’s encouraging to know that you can still have quite a bit a sex and with as many partners as you can—just keep using a rubber. 

Twitter Reacts to the Gillette Ad Proving That the Commercial is a Hairy Topic

Twitter Reacts to the Gillette Ad Proving That the Commerical is a Hairy Topic
Guys are no fans of new Gillette commercial

I woke up this morning the same way that I usually do: take a piss, follow the smell of coffee and flip on the local news. 

Some talking head was going on and on about Gillette and a controversial commercial that apparently had the opposite intended impact. Apparently, Gillette thought it was a good idea to create an ad highlighting how men should behave. I could have told them this was a big mistake and that I am pretty sure they should have had a bit more focus groups take a look at the #metoo message before releasing it to the world.

To say the reaction was mixed and downright hairy would be an understatement. After watching it, I get why so many guys are pissed off. And here’s why: it makes the assumption that we are all a bunch of dicks that overlook shitty behavior that our bros or buddies engage in. Which is not true. At least not for me and the people that I surround myself with. 

So, I get why most guys are pissed but make no mistake: the reaction and rage from guys is not a good look either. To prove my point, I’ve broken down the craziest reactions and tweets on Twitter from both sides of the argument. Personally, I don’t use Gillette razors because they cost more than my truck payment. That being said, if I did, I wouldn’t continue to punish myself by not using them either. 

What do you think of the Gillette commercial and these tweets?
