Why Drunk Driving Isn’t Manly And Never Has Been

Having a drink and hanging out with the boys is widely considered to be a very manly thing do. Whether you pass the time playing poker, shooting pool, or doing some kind of other manly activity, experiences like this can help to secure your place in your circle of friends and within your own sense of manhood.

How to respond to "Is she hot?"

Every time I tell my friends that I'm dating someone new, the first thing they ask is "Is she hot?"

What is Fundoshi?

The fundoshi has been the foundational garment for Japanese men for over 1,200 years. The first reference to a fundoshi appears in the Nihongi, and ancient text also known as "the Chronicles Of Japan." Worn by rice farmers, fishermen, samurai and crown princes, the fundoshi goes beyond simple undergarment -- indeed it is often completely acceptable on its own and is "full dress" for many situations.
