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.

Netflix and Chill and Other Ways to Get Her in the Mood

Foreplay Tips for Guys that are Guaranteed to Turn Her On

Foreplay sometimes takes a back seat once you are in a long-term relationship but foreplay plays a very important role in your sex life—no matter how long you have been together. 

And believe it or not, guys love foreplay as much as women. Here are some ways to drive her crazy before you are even in bed. 

Slow your roll.   Take your time and whatever foreplay you are engaging in don’t rush. This is bound to drive you both wild and that is the whole point. 

Massages can and DO lead to sex.   Well, if you do it right. My girlfriend thinks I give the worst back massages and describes them as downright painful. Instead, I checked out a few videos of foot massages online and mastered the perfect foot massage. It’s less strenuous than going to town on someone’s back and if you have a foot fetish (which I do) it’s a turn-on for both of you. 

Include her in the dirty talk.  I am really into talking dirty but sometimes I realize I am having a one-way conversation about what I want to do to her without mentioning how hot her ass is or how good she smells. 

Kiss more.   Have a good ol’ fashioned makeout session on the sofa focusing on just kissing. I learned this one night by accident. We were having a Netflix and Chill night and we just went for it on the sofa. Of course, being a guy, I stopped kissing her a bit earlier than she liked. 

Take charge.    And by taking charge I don’t mean caveman style. Don’t be timid about what you want to do to her. One of the biggest turnoffs according to my girlfriend is when I ask her, “do you like this?” Instead, own that light smack to the ass. 

Don’t neglect the rest of her body.   It goes without saying that you should spend some time stimulating her via nipples or clitoris, but soft, gentle strokes along her sides, arms or buttocks goes a looong way—for both of you. 

Last but not least, ask her what she likes. This is a question that most women are dying to be asked whether it applies to sex or sushi. 

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. 

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.

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.

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?

Penis Shrinkage is a Real Thing for Guys

Penis Shrinkage is a Real Thing for Guys

There is a famous episode of the sitcom, Seinfeld where the character George Costanza literally gets caught with his pants down. Actually, it was his swimsuit following exposure to cold water. In case you were wondering this unfortunate function is caused by the sympathetic nervous system.

But can your penis actually get smaller without help from freezing water or a cold breeze? The answer is just as frightening as a flaccid penis and that answer is, kinda. In fact, there is also a medical term for a fully-erect penis called, tumescence. 

So, besides a cold shower what else could lead to penis shrinkage? Well, erections are fueled by blood flow which can wane a bit as you get older and also impact the production of testosterone. Guys with heart disease, diabetes, and thyroid conditions could be seeing changes in the length of time they can hold an erection, not the actual size.

If you are concerned there are some simple steps you can take to combat every guy’s worst nightmare. For starters, hit the gym. Exercise is good for your heart, blood flow, and testosterone.

Of course, a healthy diet is always a good idea. Find out what food you should be eating to boost your overall health and stamina in the blog 11 foods that boost your health and stamina

Lastly, keep in mind that having sex at the right time of day does play a factor in your performance and tumescence.

Don’t freak out if you are having shrinkage issues. Call your doctor, make an appointment to get everything checked out and while you’re at it, get cleared before introducing any new diet or exercise program mentioned above.
