Guys With Better Personalities Get Laid More According to Study

Guys With Better Personalities Get Laid More According to StudyWant to get laid more? You may want to work on your personality, according to an Australian study. 

Late last year, Queensland University of Technology dug a little deeper into a sex study back in 2016. Researchers found that of the1,500 women and 3,000 men surveyed that the personality of the guys made quite an impact on sexual preferences. 

Guys that were more outgoing or extroverted with a more balanced emotional level had more sex. Turns out, it’s a turn on for a guy to be outgoing, aware of others and generally mentally stable. 

This should come as zero surprise to any guy out there that has dated. It’s the one that comes of as confident (even if he’s not), will listen to his date’s story about her co-worker that is out to get her and is not a psycho. It’s not a tall order just dating 101. 

Like it or not, truly confident or not, guys that exude confidence and are mentally stable get laid more. Women see these personality traits are safe which means they are more likely to go home with them.

The study did not specify if men felt the same way but I can tell you from personal experience that some of the hottest women I have dated were not mentally stable. 

Four Reasons Why Most Guys Should Be Taking a Yoga Class

Four Reasons Why Most Guys Should Be Taking a Yoga Class

The gyms are packed this time of year and you can expect to wait a bit longer to grab those free weights or jump on the machine. While hitting the gym is the go-to way get to work strengthening those abs and building those muscles, you may want to consider hitting a yoga studio as well.

That’s right. I got a chance to try out my first class with my girlfriend and let’s just say…mind blown and the benefits extend beyond the eye candy in class (most women are stripped down to just a sports bra and tight yoga pants). 

Here are four reasons and takeaways from attending my first yoga class as a guy.

Did I mention eye candy?   When the class first started I had a hard time focusing in on holding and letting out my breath nevermind warrior pose. The women in yoga classes are flexible, bending over backwards and feel comfortable enough to strip down to tight pants and just a kind-off sporty bra top. I eventually got comfortable enough to be around them but it was a bonus right from the start. 

Increased my range of motion.  I didn’t notice until two days later when I was at the gym mid bi-cep curl that it was easier to move and with less stiffness. Turns out, all the standing tree and back bending loosened me up enough to kill it (in a good way) on weights. The movements and positions that you do during yoga also lengthen mucles in a way that can’t be done when you are doing repetitive exercises at the gym. 

Catching my breath.  Full disclosure? I pay ZERO attention to my breathing unless I am doing reps and using breathing to count. But the practice of just breathing over and over again actually helped me during cardio. I felt that I could pull in more breath and let it out. While the practice of breathing in yoga class wasn’t my favorite, it helped me to keep up my energy level during a run. 

Better sex life.   If my gifrlfriend had told me this sooner I would have hit the yoga studio with her years ago. Instead, I was approached by the yoga instructor/teacher at the end of class and explained how and why yoga improves your sex life. One big reason is a more toned pelvic muscle. In fact, there is a 2011 study from the Journal of Sexual Medicine that goes deeper into the many benefits. 

While yoga will never replace my gym workout I am always down for all the other benefits that come with it. So the next time your girlfriend or spouse bugs you about going to yoga with them shock the shit out of them and show up—your body will thank you for it later. 

Top New Year’s Resolutions for Guys and How to Stick to Them 

Top New Year’s Resolutions for Guys and How to Stick to Them 

Happy 2019! Tis the season for resolving to finally get those ripped abs, last longer in bed or drop that beer gut. We’ve compiled a list of the top New Year’s Resolutions in 2019 for guys and tips that will help you stick to them. 

Get more sleep.    This is fairly new resolution to top the list and is a sign not only of the times but an understanding of the important role that sleep plays in overall health. A lack of sleep also lowers your testosterone levels which lowers your sex drive.

A few simple solutions to helping you get more sleep include: avoiding alcohol and caffeine at least 3 hours before bed and keeping your cell phone off your bedside. 

Eating healthier.    January is the perfect month to kick-off that weight loss plan and purge your body of all the shit you put into it during the holidays. One of the most popular diets that helps rid your body of processed foods is Whole 30 and Paleo-based eating plans. In fact, Chipotle even released a Whole 30, Paleo and diet-friendly menu.

If you do decide to try either, keep in mind that you should consult your physician before starting any new diet or eating plan. 

Make and save more money.   As long as you are going to focus on your overall health you should work on your financial health as well. Don’t know where to start? Create a budget first and be sure and pad funds to set aside each month in your savings.

Many banks and financial institutions have options to automatically deposit that dough directly into a savings account. Lastly, ask for a raise or promotion. Here’s a link with some tips on how ask for that raise. 

The secret to success is creating a plan, forgiving yourself when you go off of it and reminding yourself WHY you are doing it in the first place. 

Wishing everyone success in 2019!

Foods to Avoid at the Thanksgiving Table if You Want to Keep your Abs

Foods to Avoid at the Thanksgiving Table if You Want to Keep your Abs

Getting ripped abs is a dedication that actually starts at the dinner table not the gym and if you’ve busted your ass trying to get them, you will want to keep them by avoiding these foods at the Thanksgiving table. 

Refrain from refined grains.  There are actually great gains for gaining muscle and good carbs but it’s the refined grains that could cause fat to find its way your gut. So what are refined grains? Well, they are likely to be in your white-buttered rolls or white, fluffy rices and pastas. If they make their to your plate, just keep passing.

Beer and soda.   Soda and beers contain not only those tiny bubbles that will bloat you out in your favorite pants but will keep you feeling bloated the whole meal. There is also a shit ton of sugar in sodas so why waste those calories on a drink? If you want some alcohol with your meal, stick to a white wine that is dry. 

Mashed potatoes.   This is a tough one to pass on. Potatoes and especially white ones have a higher glycemic index than sugar! Why? Well, blame is on the amount of starch that white potatoes contain which is no good for maintaining those abs. If you must have some, a little dollop for taste will do. Otherwise, reach for the green beens instead. 

Processed sugars.   By now, we have all heard the word “processed” in our foods. Well, pre-packaged foods that sit on shelves and never age can age your body pretty fast. Many of these processed foods HAVE to contain sugar and sodium so they can stick to its shelf life. If it comes in a package and doesn’t spoil for several months or until the end of time, just avoid it. It’s better to go for fresh-baked cookies and keep em’ to a minimum. 

Don’t drop your workout routine.   It’s easy to skip out on workout routines when they are abruptly interrupted by family obligations or family drama. This is can especially challenging if you are traveling during the Thanksgiving holiday. Even if you are not “killing it” during these workouts, it’s easier to return to your normal routine when you are not completely MIA at a gym. Here’s a blog on how to get those six-pack abs in case you don’t have them but want them.

As always, never start a new diet or exercise plan without consulting your physician first. Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving and kick-ass abs.

Everything You Need to Know About Movember and Growing Your ‘Stache 

Everything You Need to Know About Movember and Growing Your ‘Stache 

Movember is coming and the movement designed to bring awareness to prostate and testicular cancer comes with these simple rules: 

Step 1.    Start by going to movember.com and signing up. There are three participation options. Obviously you grow a ‘stache, second you commit to at least 60 hours of exercise over the month of November, and third raise funds by hosting a mo-ment. 

Step 2.    No cheating by keeping your current facial hair. Instead, begin with a clean shave and begin your grooming routine. 

Step 3.    Find the right products. If you are not used to rocking facial hair you will want to track down some products to keep itching to a minimum and primping to a maximum. Invest in beard oil to smooth wirey hairs, and razors both disposable and electric AND scissors. Here is a great grooming kit for sale on Amazon.

Step 4.  Let it grow. This could be the hardest part. It’s not a comfortable to be in a state of scruff and full-on Grizzly Adams. Personally, I will end up spending the entire month growing the weakest of ‘staches while some of the guys I work with can grow a full beard in their sleep. Don’t panic, it’s too soon to even consider what shape you want just yet.

Step 5.  As for those 60 hours of exercise, add in some killer ab workouts or add in these exercises that help increase stamina in bed. Better yet, sex does count as cardio so be sure and add that to your 60 hours for the month. 

Step 6.  Decide on the kind of mustache you want to rock. It’s also important to keep your beard to a scruff. Remember, it’s all about the ‘stache this month. Here is a handy beard guide to help you shape your look.

Last but not least, check your nuts for signs or testicular cancer which is the best way to celebrate Movember. Here’s what you need to know about testicular cancer and how you  can check for it. 

Got Erectile Dysfunction? Could Be Bad Genes Says Study

Got Erectile Dysfunction? Could Be Bad Genes Says Study

If you needed another reason to blame your family you can add ED or erectile dysfunction to the list. Turns out, your genes could be one reason you have trouble keeping an erection, according to a recent survey released by Kaiser Permanente. 

The holidays are getting close so I don’t want to get anyone so pissed off that this comes up as the topic of conversation while dinner rolls are passed over the warmth of a turkey and the coldness of relatives. 

It’s merely to shed some insight on other factors to consider if you are having issues with ED or stamina or both. If you ruled out or shed some pounds, changed up your medications or diet (all under the guidance of your doctor or a medical professional) or eliminated some bad habits then your DNA might be the problem. 

Back to the survey. Kaiser dug a little deeper and actually got a shitton of Americans as in about 37,000 to consent to submitting their medical records for this study. I never questioned why or how they did but it might have something to do with the importance of satisfying your partner.

ED is a big f’in deal for guys. And as you might have guessed those participating that forked over their medical records had either been diagnosed with ED or treated for it. 

Remember how I mentioned shedding some pounds and erections? Well, that was the gene that the study highlighted. In particular, its the gene that has everything to do with getting hard—hard muscles, a hard erection and regulating your weight. 

It wasn’t a big surprise to medical professionals that genes do impact your erections. I mean, they impact whether you end up bald or fighting baldness and resorting to a combover.

However, what was EXCITING news was that scientists and your doctor may know why certains prescription medications such as Viagra have fallen short when it comes to treating ED in those with low testosterone. 

Of the 50% of guys that have ruled out other issues and still suffer from ED, the silver lining is that genetic-based treatments are on the horizon. 

Until that happens, here are some ways that you can help curb ED:

Farts Can Be a Turn on For Some Partners Suggests Survey

Farts Can Be a Turn on For Some Partners Suggests Survey

Ripping one, cutting the cheese, floating an air biscuit aka farting is a turn on for some sexual partners, according to a recent survey released by seniorliving.org. 

The survey, aptly named, Everybody Poops and Farts took a closer look at how our men and women really feel about farts, how we try hiding them and other oddities like people that get turned on by them.

Considering that both men and women fart at least 20 times a day, we’re all on this together.

Let’s jump into some of the survey’s results:

How guys try to mask a fart—

  • 75 percent try the ol’ go-to: holding it in
  • 58 percent slip off to another room 
  • 54 percent head out to the great outdoors 
  • 25 percent try to create a distraction by hiding it with noise such as making a fart sound with your mouth.

I can recall countless dates (usually following a dinner out at a Mexican restaurant) where one false move and a million farts would explode. Most people and I assumed my dates would be grossed-out or even replused by flatulence. And personally speaking, the feeling is mutual when my date farts. 

This makes sense since the survey points to an average of 6.5 months before a guy cracks one in front of his partner—on purpose. Women wait an estimated 1.3 years

Guys wait 6.5 months on average to fart in front of their girlfriend or partner.  Women tend to take longer, waiting on average 1.3 YEARS. 

Now, let’s get to those in the survey that apparently are real freaks and get turned on by a fart. It’s a mere 11 percent for guys and 3 percent of women that think it’s hot. Anything over 1 percent is nasty and the survey also cited that 28 percent of guys have ruined the mood after cracking one while in bed with their partner.

 

7 Strange and Fun Facts About Sperm

7 Strange and Fun Facts About Sperm

Sperm has earned many, many, many nicknames: spooge, man juice, baby batter…just to name a few. However, sperm gets more credit than it deserves when sperm is lumped in with semen. Here are seven strange and fun facts about sperm. 

  1. Turns out, it’s not exactly the same as sperm. Sperm makes up a very small amount of man juice—only a mere 5-10 percent. The rest is the semen and since semen is nutrient-charged it also helps propel sperm into the uterine stratosphere. Think of semen as sperm’s wingman. 

2.   Every guy at one point or another has measured the size of his penis. I’ve done it even in my late 20s..ok, recently. You may think your penis or rather testicles packs a big load, but the average full ejaculation is only a teaspoon…NOT a tablespoon. Feel free to grab a teaspoon to see how you measure up, just wash your hands and the teaspoon when you’re finished. 

3.   Now that you know that sperm can launch its way up into the uterine planet thanks to its wingman, semen, you may want to know how long it can party and stay alive up in there. Hold onto your butts—up to five days! That’s right! Of course, this is dependant on the acidity of your partner’s womb. If the acidity is not ripe for fermentation, than typically it can last between 24 and 48 hours. 

4.   Speaking of strong sperm, no matter how many swimmers you think you have, you will never compare to a bat’s sperm which can live up to…wait for it…145 days. WOW! 

5.   Now that you feel inadequate about your sperm’s lifespan, don’t fret. Men NEVER stop producing sperm. That’s right, guys. Now you know how Richard Gere just had a baby and Charlie Chaplin never stopped even into his 70s. It’s ok to take some pride in that. 

6.  Shitty diet = shitty sperm. You are what you eat when it comes to sperm. The worst diet you have, the worse your sperm can get. Stay hydrated ON WATER, and eat foods rich in antioxidants and other aphrodiasic stimulants such as oysters and dark chocolate. As for the water, the more you drink, the deeper pool they have to swim in. Here are 11 foods that you should be eating right now to boost your stamina. You’re welcome. 

7.   Balls deep just took on a new meaning. Sperm are stored in your scrotum because sperm prefer cooler temps which makes sense since men tend to produce more sperm during the colder, winter months than during the heat of the summer. 

4 Best Smelling Body Wash Scents for Men that Women Like 

4 Best Smelling Body Wash Scents for Men that Women Like 

As a guy in my thirties I have a go-to for body washes based on scents that work best with my chemistry and pheromones. Or at least that’s what I like to tell myself. Ulitimately, it’s more about what my partner prefers that gets them sexually charged than what I think I smell like. 

Which led to the ulitmate question: which body wash scents make you more attractive to women?

Based on copius amounts of feedback, I’ve compiled a list of the best body wash scents that you should get busy buying right now to get busy. 

ManCave Natural Cedarwood Shower Gel—Loaded with tea tree, and black pepper oil it’s perfect for guys that suffer from breakouts and other bullshit related to sensitive skin. It’s also free of other crap such as parabens, synthetic dyes (cue skin sensitivity issues) and petrochemiclas. Also, no amimals were part of the testing so that’s a great talking point if you happen to get a compliment on its cedarwood fragrance. Plus, it helps hydrate skin and makes you smell like the mountain main you have always dremed of emulating.

Old Spice Denali Body Wash—Old Spice has been around awhile and to lose its stigma attached to the yesteryear of grandpas splashing it on before church, they have really stepped up their game and scents over the last decade or so. Consider the commericals with the guy sitting on a white horse hawking scents with names like Wolfthorn, Steel Courage, Swagger and even Bearglove. However, the most appealing scent is one called, Denali. Don’t believe me? It’s the scent that is most-often missing from shelves due to its popularity. What’s the best about this body wash is that it still holds that safe and nostalgic scent of yesteryear without going to creepville and still smelling youthful instead of like a grandpa from the 1970s. 

Hollister Jake—Speaking of youth, this scent is right in step with the cedarwood shower gel scent meaning that it still encompasses the scent of youth without smelling like you’re too young to be DTF and know what you are doing. Hollister is typically in step with surfing and a more “free” lifestyle which is a nice touch when you are trying to sell your date or partner on spontaneous sex. Oh, and feel free to exaggerate your time as a kite surfer. 

Nivea Men Energy–  What is it with Nivea and men’s products? Well, beause they are awesome and they have come a long way since the company shifted from focusing on womens and its namesake which was a combo of the latin words, nix, or nivis—meaning, “snow white.” Today, its line of products cater to guys that want smooth, clean skin and a scent to match which is why women like the men’s care line as well. 

7 Surprising Causes of ED or Erectile Dysfunction 

 pexels-photo-1246960.jpg

Most guys at some point in their lives will have trouble getting it up or the medical term: erectile dysfunction which is commonly referred to as ED—you know, to make guys feel a little better about it. 

Truth be told, even in your 20s you have probably experienced problems performing mostly related to too much alcohol or your run-of-the-mill performance anxiety. 

Here are 7 other reasons or causes that most guys will inenvitably face as they get older. 

—Prescription medications

I actually covered this in an earlier blog after I discovered that Rogaine was killing my sex drive. If a topical like Rogaine can do this imagine what drugs like Propecia can do. Medications that also treat prostate issues have also been linked to lower libidos in men. Just be upfront with your doctor if you are experiencing a lack of drive or no longer “stronger like bull.”  

—Visit the dentist regularly 

If you haven’t been to the dentist in awhile or have been diagnosed with gum disease or periodontal disease it’s time to get it fixed. Not just for your overall health but periodontal disease can also cause erectile dysfunction. Seriously, don’t neglect your gums. 

—Cycling

Getting regular exercise is great but cycling for long periods of time or long distance does no favors for your prostate or those blood vessels. This is because the saddle or the bicycle seat pushes or slows down blood flow to your penis. Try other forms of cardio and weight lifting to stay fit and active. 

—Diabetes 

If you have ever been diagnosed as pre-diabetic or have received the diagnosis you need to know that the inability to regulate your blood sugar levels drastically impairs getting and holding erections. Again, be aware of this and talk to your doctor if you are having signs of ED. 

—Depression 

Speaking of depressing notonly does depression take a tole on my body and mind but it screws up your sexual drive as well. Adding insult to injury, some of the medications commonly prescribed for depression can mess with your erections. Again, let your doctor or physician know and inquire about something else that would be just as effective without causing momentary impotence. 

If none of the other reasons apply to you, look to your diet and always consult a physician first.
