I read a lot of posts on AOM and enjoy them all. I love that this site is restoring manliness. I'm not sure how " manly " this post is but here it goes. My wife went on a beauty run today, facial, hair, nails, wax, etc. she got a massage, and all that stuff. Then she did something completely unexpected. When she got home, she had a very nice cigar for me and the ingredients for martinis. She put a tea kettle on the stove and put peppermint oil in the water. She had me lean over it with a towel over my head to steam my face. I can't even begin to describe how good that felt. It's like my skin could breath. After that she had me sit at the table and she gave me a straight razor shave. I lit my cigar and had a martini while she rubbed this cleanser on my face then a lotion. She cleaned and trimmed my finger nails, massaged my scalp and put talcum powder on me. After a couple of drinks and a damn fine cigar I hit the shower. I came out of the bathroom and she had a sandlewood candle burning and gave me a massage. It was about 5 pm when that ended. It's now 1am and I still feel very relaxed and loose and can still smell the peppermint oil from the steam. Again, I don't know if people will think this is unmanly, but damn I feel good
Ok, I've never heard of sky fall so obviously I've never seen it. And call bluff all you like, I wasn't posting this to impress anyone. Just thought it was an awesome thing my wife did. And, she does know how to use a straight razor. She has had to shave her dad for years with one because he can't use his hands. But, maybe I should check out your movie to see what similarities you're talking about
Some might call it unmanly, but in my opinion your morals and values are what makes you a man, not your dress, hygiene etc. Alot of males seem to think having chest hair and stubble is what makes a man. They are the ones quick to judge, and question another. They are just overgrown boys to me.
I have longish hair and plan on it getting longer. I shampoo, condition and use a moroccan oil everytime I shower. Does that change my morals, integrity and dedication to my family?
