"How do you bring up pubic trimming/shaving to a woman?" a guy I know asked me via Facebook message.
dating
The only demographic that hasn't offered me dating advice is the men I've gone out with over the last few years, so I decided to ask them for it in exchange for anonymity and no hard feelings.

"I'm glad I didn't meet you in my twenties," I tell him. "Man, I would have been so stupid about you."

modeling
I had moved to London, got a visa, an agency, and ditched commercial season in LA against the advice of my manager to be with a guy I was in love with. At least I’ve learned my lesson about never relying on men for anything.

Ladies, stay gorgeous forever or else your husband might stop loving you, OK? See, a new study concludes that men are happier when married to "good-looking" women. Barf. And duh.

God bless this guy. This letter is golden.

okcupid
A depressing new study found that dudes on OKCupid are most attracted to women who claim to be cheaters.
men
This is the one "gender role-y" thing that my husband and I consistently bicker about.
porn

feminism
Men were always wrong. Men were aggressors; men were rapists; men were stupid; men were obsessed with their penises; men were responsible for forcing my mother into a heterosexual marriage and motherhood.
