At the pharmacy in town, they sell Aqua Velva Classic, Old Spice Original, Brut, and the typical shitty Axe variants. I'm torn. I like the smell of Old Spice, but it seems to disappear quickly. Aqua Velva smells great and lasts longer, and is also recommended on my shaving soap (William's Mug), and Brut claims to be "the Essence of Man." Does anyone else use drug store aftershave? Or do I stand alone in cheapness? If you do use it, what's your favorite?
I buy Pinaud Bay Rum at the Walgreens up the block. I'll admit that I was slightly pleased to find it had a following on AOM, because nobody I know uses it. I used to wear Brut, but to be honest, that stuff ranks up there with gasoline in the odor department. Old Spice does wear off fast, and Aqua Velva can get funky if you mix it with the wrong body wash, soap, or hair product.
Pinaud Clubman and Old Spice are two cheaper fragrances that I enjoy. And I've started getting CVS spice aftershave instead of Old Spice because I've found that the former smells better and more like what Old Spice used to smell like.
I thought I was the only guy who used Pinaud Clubman. I had a bottle that lasted for about 2 years, but did not restock because it was so strong. On a day to day, I just use deodorant and a shave balm on days when I shave (every other).
I do like the Pinaud Clubman Talcum Powder. It goes on my feet and twigs and berries after the shower. Smells pleasant and doesn't have that menthol sting that Gold bond has.
"I wonder if you could discuss it with her without her feeling she was being put in a spot. She may have a medical condition which makes sex painful for instance. What is the relationship like otherwise? Is she attentive and pleasant to live…"
"It's electric. It was at about 125 and I just bumped it to 130. I don't want to go too high because I've got children, including a handicapped child, in the house.
Problem isn't that the water is too cool…"
"There's so many ways to confront this before considering the last resort. Communicating with your wife in a way that is not complaining or attacking her in her lack of intimacy would be the first step. The goal would be finding out…"
"Valuing sex more than valuing the person you're having, or not having, it with... no wonder she isn't interested. How lonely for the both of you. Make love the priority and you may get some place less lonely."
How long would you last in a marriage with a wife who always said no? And by no I think you KNOW what I'm talking about. With me it has been years of once every three months to nothing at all. I have to find the courage to finally do something about it. Like contacting a lawyer.See More
