Wise Guys: How Do Men Feel About Dirty Talk?

June 5, 2012


photo by db*photography

Advice from three of EMandLO.com’s guy friends. This week they answer the following: What’s your opinion of dirty talk? To ask the guys your own question, click here.

Gay Single Guy (Angelo Nikolopoulos of The White Swallow): I’m not categorically opposed to dirty talk, as long as my sexual soup de jour isn’t a complete moron. Which leads me to my next maxim: Sleeping with morons is permissible if they don’t talk. Obviously, if you make it a priority not to sleep with morons, this doesn’t apply to you — carry on with your foul-mouthed ways. But since I admire beauty in all its Neanderthal forms, I once slept with a man who insisted on calling my unmentionable a boy pussy:

Does your boy pussy need attention?
Let me tear that boy pussy tonight.
Is your boy pussy hungry for beef?

In this case, dirty talk — or all forms of communication, really — is problematic only in that it threatens to expose your partner’s verbal and intellectual ineptitude. So why risk a good thing by encouraging the potty mouth? In the end, there’s one maxim that always rings true: Less is more, sweetcheeks.

Straight Committed Guy (Johnny): In my experience, women who talk dirty in public are full of it — just attention seekers most of the time. The quiet ones are the real deal. So, in a lot of ways, I’m trained to get turned on initially by a woman who knows what to leave unsaid. Once we’ve become sex partners, in a naked bedroom context, things change a little. Talk is good, but walk is better. The dirty talk that excites me the most is a shocking, single instructional phrase which she delivers like she’s halfway scared of what she’s suggesting. Like, “come on my face” or “slap me” or “choke me.” Just leave out the corny porn dirty talk, like, “Ooh yeah, fuck my pussy with your big cock!” Cheesy.

chris_diclericoStraight Single Guy (Chris): I’d like to ask you the same question and have you answer it with my huge throbbing cock in your mouth. (I like it. As for other guys, it’s not something I’ve talked to many of them about. I imagine most would like it with the right woman.)

Wise Guys: How Do Male and Female Orgasms Compare?

Advice from three of EMandLO.com’s guy friends. This week they answer the following: What do you think is the difference between the male orgasm and the female orgasm? To ask the guys your own question, click here.

Single Straight Guy (Colin Adamo of Hooking Up & Staying Hooked): I’m going to put aside everything I know about the physiology and biochemistry of orgasms and say the female orgasm is like that long stretch you have when you first wake up and the male orgasm is like a sneeze. That a.m. stretch is refreshing, it involves your whole body, it feels as though it lasts for ages, and it just puts you in the perfect mood to start the day. The sneeze on the other hand just sort of happens. It’s messy, quick, a little embarrassing, and you can feel kind of gross afterward. Both the stretch and the sneeze are pretty necessary, but one is a bit more glamorous.

Married Straight Guy (Irad Eyal of Sexdegrees.net): This is a really important psychological, sociological, and political question, so I won’t even tell the joke about how you need Kleenex for both. I think of the female orgasm as the awesome moment before a male orgasm (plateau phase — 5th grade Sex Ed?) except it can go on longer, reboot, or degrade into giggles, which doesn’t usually happen to me.

terence_100Committed Gay Guy (Terence): Volume, viscosity and the time it takes to get there.

Our “guys” are a rotating group of contributors. Irad Eyal is a writer, TV producer, and founder of celebrity gossip site Sexdegrees.netColin Adamo is a recent Yale grad and author/blogger behind Hooking Up & Staying Hooked, the only sex and relationships resource specifically for high school guys; and Terence is an American living in Sydney.

Wise Guys: If a Guy Says He Doesn’t Like Porn, Is He Lying?

May 22, 2012


Advice from three of EMandLO.com’s guy friends. This week they answer the following: “If a guy says he doesn’t like porn, is he lying?” To ask the guys your own question, click here.

Married Bisexual Guy (Bryan Sebeck): Not necessarily. Porn is one of those things that get categorized as a guilty pleasure, but I know more than a few men who just aren’t into it. The problem with porn is that almost all of it is entirely unrealistic. “Ding dong. Hi, I’m Cornay and I work in IT. Do you have a problem with your hard drive?” Are you kidding me? If stuff like that worked, every computer programmer on earth would be getting laid like crazy. Just look at some of the titles of this stuff. “World Sex Tour 19”, “Ass Good Ass It Gets”, “Beverley Hills Copulator”? It’s freaking puntastic.

Of course, there is one way in which almost every guy enjoys porn, in humor. A good friend of mine went to a college where watching the porn version of Alice in Wonderland was a regular event. Viewing parties drew 40+ people. Who wouldn’t laugh at an x-rated musical parody of Alice? It gives new meaning to the phrase “down the rabbit hole.” When I was in college, a group of us would occasionally head out to the local movie rental chain and pick the porno with the goofiest sounding name or plot to watch and make fun of. My favorite was a Star Wars parody that was creatively named “Porn Wars”. Yeah, it’s that cheesy. The “Jodi” are a group of muscular buxom females who are training a crop of equally muscular and well-oiled men in the powers of the Force. The best part is that the light sabers have been replaced with silver dildos.

Really though, what a guy wants is real sex. The closer that he can get to that, the better, which is exactly the problem with porn, and why many men simply aren’t into it. Even the “amateur” videos and sites are bogus. These are simply women who are just getting into the business. What a guy is far more likely to utilize for his mastubatory needs are pictures or videos of ex girlfriends if he has them. If that bothers you, then you should either be giving him new material, or better yet, giving him sex.

Single Bisexual Guy (Jack): Short answer: yes. Nuanced answer? Maybe not outright lying, but not completely honest. In the internet age, we can find porn to suit any taste or fetish. To say a guy doesn’t like porn is like saying a guy doesn’t like music. Men are visual and will respond to something they like, whether they will admit it or not. If he says he doesn’t like porn, it can only be one of three reasons: 1) he’s completely and utterly repressed sexually, unable to accept his own sexual desires, 2) he’s embarrassed by his own sexual desires, which may include a fetish or two he isn’t ready to share, or 3) he wants his partner to believe that she is the only woman in the world on his mind. But in all three cases, he’s lying.

Single Straight Guy (Saad): If anyone – man, woman, straight or otherwise – denies liking porn, they’re probably lying. Unless individuals are truly asexual, like those bacteria and yeast you read about in biology class, there is going to be some kind of pornography out there that gets their juices flowing. (Whether they actively seek it out or not is another story. In other words, if they say they don’t like porn, they just haven’t looked hard enough…or at all.)

As far as guys are concerned, our relationship with porn spans a spectrum, from shamelessly addicted (or, shamefully) to “I’m bored, there’s nothing else to do on the Internet.” One thing is certain: we like the real thing, with her soft skin and a mess of hair splayed over our pillow, worlds better than any digital imitation. So, if you’re seeing a guy, show a bit of curiosity and ask him to share his interests in this area. Start small, indicate you want it to be on the tamer side. After a while, you both might find yourselves very pleasantly surprised with where the path takes you.

If you plan to reproduce by willing yourself to split into two, you can disregard this advice.

Wise Guys: Do Men Really Care About Their Partner’s Flexibility?

Advice from three of EMandLO.com’s guy friends. This week they answer the following: “Do men really care about how flexible their partners are in bed?” To ask the guys your own question, click here.

Single Straight Guy (Scott Phrenetik): Sure, flexibility is great… but I don’t need you to be able to lock your legs behind your head. In fact, I’ve never had an issue of a woman not being flexible enough for what we were doing. So no, it’s really not a big deal.

Married Straight Guy (Ben D.): Flexible as in easy going personality, then yes. I don’t want to be with a high maintenance person who cannot roll with the punches. Sometimes life happens and the best laid plans fall apart. Physically flexible, who wouldn’t want that? I don’t think members of either gender or sexual orientation want someone who is stiff and can’t move. So get out those yoga mats.

Single Gay Guy (Abraham Zeus Zapata): It’s just as much a big deal as penis length is for you gals — a happy medium is always appreciated! It’s great to have the option, but too much flex is like having sex a la Exorcism of Emily Rose (kinda scary) — but too little is like trying maneuver a department store mannequin. You don’t need to be “Cirque du Soleil,” but a yoga DVD can do wonders!

Wise Guys: Can Straight Men and Women Be Friends?

May 8, 2012


Advice from three of EM & LO‘s guy friends. This week a straight woman asks, “What’s your take on the When Harry Met Sally truism that men and women who are single and who find each other attractive can’t simply be friends?”

Straight Single Guy (Tyler Barnett): I could go on and on about the many exceptions to this rule, but really it’s quite simple: a straight man and a straight women who are both single and find each other attractive will almost definitely have sex at some point. It may happen during a moment of weakness at a friends wedding, or maybe after polishing off a case of apple-flavored Smirnhoff Ices while watching the American Idol finale together, but I assure you, it will happen eventually.

Now before you start to tell me about your amazing opposite-sex friend who is in a strictly platonic relationship with you, let me remind you that there are indeed many exceptions, or at least explanations. I would bet this friend of yours is probably not attractive to you, or maybe just not attracted to you. I would also bet this friend is either in a long relationship, married, or gay. Or if that doesn’t cover your situation, you have probably dated in the past and it didn’t work out, so now you are friends. But there is always something. There is a reason you are friends and not more. And usually this is because one party is more into it than the other. And when that happens, there are hurt feelings.

Can men and women be strictly friends when they find each other attractive and they are both single? Sure. But that friendship will definitely have some added benefits.

Straight Married Guy (James Glazebrook): I think Harry went even further, saying that men can’t even be friends with women they don’t find attractive, because they will still try to get them in to bed. While funny, I totally disagree with this, based as it is on the assumption that all men and women have in common is sex. I’ve always had as many female friends as male, because they were equally uninterested in sports, drinking until they puke and talking about tits. And rarely has their gender or attractiveness been an issue — only on a couple of occasions when I was so drunk it probably wouldn’t have mattered if they were women or men. Naturally, our friends contain a lot of the traits that we find attractive in sexual partners, but it would take a man of extreme arrogance and horniness to try and fuck them all. Like Harry.

Gay Single Guy (Justin Huang): I run with a relatively straight crowd, so I encounter this a lot. It’s funny: when I’m partying, I want everyone to hook up and I tend to push straight people together into compromising positions (I call it “Real Sims”). But when I’m sober, which is at least 50% of the time, I take a step back because things do get complicated between friends when sex enters the picture. I’ve seen a lot of great friendships (both gay and straight) become awkward this way. I think that it’s healthy to address the issue head on and talk about it like adults if there’s a mutual sexual attraction, but that’s not incredibly realistic.

Honestly, the best cases in which I’ve personally witnessed the Harry-Sally scenario have been when the couple in question just acknowledged the attraction and banged it out, usually on the couch of a mutual friend or a shared Vegas suite. Sexual tension is an abstract emotion, and if it is consummated, then Harry and Sally might be able to move on with their friendship with “been there, done that” casualness. I see it happen all the time.

Or… they might fall in love and have a great story to tell! “So we had this mutual friend named Justin, and he got us really drunk…”

Wise Guys: What Do Men Really Think About Cuddling?

May 1, 2012

Advice from three of EMandLO.com’s guy friends. This week they answer the following: “What do men really think about cuddling?” To ask the guys your own question, click here.

Gay Married Guy (Jon Ross): Cuddling is the most amazing thing in the world to do after you’ve come — after having a cigarette or possibly eating a cookie. There is nothing like snuggling up to that person you’ve just had amazing sex with as you drift off to blissful sleep. Of course, if you’re horned up or didn’t come during your little romp, there are few things more frustrating than when your man wants to cuddle and all you wanna do is bang it out dirty style. But overall, I would put cuddling squarely in the “things in life that totally rock” category — and I think most men would too, even if they might be a bit hesitant to admit it.

Straight Single Guy (Adam): It’s hard to make a declaration on behalf of all straight single guys as to what they think of cuddling. However, would you like to guess who likes cuddling, is in touch enough with his feelings to admit it, and — as you can tell from his profile photo — has at least one thumb? This guy!  I personally enjoy cuddling, I really really do, if it’s A) with the right girl and B) not being done while watching any movie starring Sarah Jessica Parker (except Space Camp, because who doesn’t love that flick?).  In fact, I’ve found that my desire level for cuddling can be a good barometer for how much I’m actually into a girl.  If it’s low, that usually means something isn’t right with the relationship.  If it’s high, it means I’m probably going to regret the day I eventually screw it up. P.S. I do have a second thumb.

Straight Married Guy (David Jacobs): Cuddling’s okay when it’s cold. Pretty nice to have a warm body next to you, and it occasionally leads to a little hanky-panky, which is of course a bonus. Post-coitus it’s alright as well, though by then both parties are usually a little sweaty and would rather stretch out and claim some space to cool down and recuperate. Body contact at that juncture usually consists of a stray crossed limb or whatnot. Cuddling? Not so much. I suppose once temperatures have stabilized it’s ok again, but by then someone (me!) is often drifting off, in which case it does’t really last long anyway — at least not that I’m aware of. So generally speaking, what’s my take on cuddling? No strong feelings for or against. When it’s not a nuisance it can be nice, but in limited quantities. I wouldn’t want to spend all day doing it!

Wise Guys: The Top 3 No-No’s for a Straight Woman on a 1st Date

April 24, 2012


Advice from three of EMandLO.com’s guy friends. This week they answer the following: What are the top 3 no-no’s for a woman to do on a first date? To ask the guys your own question, click here.

Committed Gay Guy (Dwayne):

1. talking about ex boyfriends
2. planning the wedding
3. crying


Married Straight Guy (Jake): This is the kind of thinking that we need to break away from. There are no three top things, three best things, three worst things that will make your first date the best. Checklists that other people create for you can cause neurosis, unnecessary worrying and sweaty palms. This is a battered and bruised cliché, but seriously, just be yourself. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by acting, talking, eating and laughing naturally. Anything else is a waste of time.

Single Straight Guy (
Megan): My most recent first date turned into four dates in the same day with the same woman. She broke quite a few rules from my style manual. She made fun of my cardigan. (I still have it and it is pretty atrocious, but still..). She played games when I asked for her phone number. She was a wee heavy on the makeup. She got buzzed and emotional. She accepted a flower from another man. Each of these is a no-no for me. Despite those violations, we had an amazing day. We had lunch together. We went for a midafternoon drink. We met again for dinner. We met back at her place for a late night dip in the hot tub. We would not have gotten past the lunch if there wasn’t something there. We wouldn’t have gone for a drink if there wasn’t something there. We definitely wouldn’t have warmed up the hot tub if there wasn’t something there. If you feel it, ignore your rules. Go with your gut, but know your limits, too. If she had talked on the phone throughout lunch, I would have walked; but she didn’t. Sometimes it’s better to swallow your rules. You’ll learn more about the person opposite you, but you’ll also learn something about yourself. Your palate might just be ready for those brussel sprouts you’ve avoided for so long.

Wise Guys: Do Men Have Elaborate Fantasies Like Women?

April 17, 2012


photo via flickr

Advice from three of EMandLO.com’s guy friends. This week they answer the following: “Do guys ever have elaborate fantasies (Riding a white horse to a naked maiden? Being captured as a porn star’s slave?), or do their fantasies tend to be more prosaic?” To ask the guys your own question, click here.

mark_luczak_100Straight Engaged Guy (Mark Luczak): Guys’ fantasies probably tend to be less Fabio-covered romance novel-esque, but that doesn’t mean they necessarily lack in poetic beauty (yes, I had to double-check the definition of “prosaic” — I thought it was an antidepressant). Since we’re stereotypically more strictly visual and to-the-point, our fantasies can run the wide range from “hot co-worker spontaneously jumping our bones” to “hot neighbor spontaneously jumping our bones” to “hot girl walking down the street spontaneously jumping our bones.” If we really want to get elaborate, we’ll mix in a porn star, or two.

daniel_100Gay Single Guy (Daniel): I think guys can have very elaborate fantasies, but that really depends on his own sexual imagination. I’m sure there are plenty who can only think of a two-girl bisexual threesome and that’s it, but I’m 100% positive there are others who might want to, say, get abducted off the street and brought into a room with dominant women who are going to sexually use and humiliate him to their hearts’ content in very specific ways. The bigger question is: which kind of guy do you want? One with a great sexual imagination, one without, or does it matter?

anonymous_suitStraight Married Guy (Figleaf): I guess I could say something like, “Hey, anyone who’s spent much time in a high-school locker room knows that guys can have very elaborate fantasies.” Or I could point out the healthy percentage of text-based porn written by men. But the real answer is… sure. Sometimes. Just speaking for myself, I’ve sometimes had fantasies that have taken literally all day to compose. But they’re not always elaborate at all. Again, speaking for myself, they’re sometimes almost impressionistic snippets of a single mental image, a motion, a touch, or memory.

Wise Guys: Do Men Admit to Other Current Casual Sex Partners?

April 10, 2012


photo via Flickr

Advice from three of EMandLO.com’s guy friends. This week they answer the following: If a guy is casually hooking up with someone and exclusivity has not yet been established, is he obliged to tell that person about other people he’s sleeping with? And should he offer up that information, or should he wait to be asked?” To ask the guys your own question, click here.

wiseguy_benStraight Married Guy (Ben)Until there’s an actual conversation, there’s no need for a conversation. In other words, as long as everybody’s playing safe, there’s no need to kiss and tell. But one important thing — this is not a “Don’t ask, don’t tell” situation. If your hook up asks you anything about it, you must be honest. Similarly, don’t you ask him or her unless you really, actually want to know.

Gay Single Guy (Justin Huang): Let’s immediately assume that everyone on this party bus is practicing safe sex and being responsible. With that established, I’d say, no, our guy is not obligated to tell his sexual partners about each other. The keyword here is “casual,” and speaking from my own experience as a single gay guy, of course I want to be with desirable people who probably have equally active sex lives, but actually hearing about it from them would be a bit of a buzzkill. If you really care about whether your hookup buddy is seeing other people, I’d say that’s a pretty clear indication that you are either just a very territorial person (read: greedy), or you have actual romantic feelings toward them and the two of you should discuss them like adults.

Furthermore, I think that it’s unfair to ask him if he’s sleeping with other people before you ask him if he wants to be exclusive. Because, frankly, it’s none of your business who those orange panties belong to unless you have a spoken claim on his penis. (Granted, if you do find someone else’s panties in his bed, that means he doesn’t clean the sheets between partners, and that should be a dealbreaker. Yuck.)

Now, there is an exception to this. He would be completely obligated to tell you about another sexual partner if it’s someone you know, especially if it’s a friend, roommate, colleague, or – yikes – someone you’re related to.

anonymous_suitStraight Single Guy (Max): If the hooking up is truly casual, there are a couple of options. First and foremost, I would say that the knowledge of other partners is often already established BEFORE any casual hooking up happens. A touch of jealousy can be a great motivator for all sides. If the knowledge of partners is unknown, I’d say that no one is obligated to say anything as long as the sex is smart and safe. After a little while however, I think that you have to say something. With time comes a greater expectation of something more: if not fidelity and commitment, than at least more forthright honesty and openness. You can’t just keep hooking up with someone and never discuss the possibilities of relationship progress, so how can you skip over something else that you already have? Also, I think that it’s incredibly rare to find more than one person who you are really into at one time. In the situations where I’ve had multiple partners, I’ve found that it’s best to be honest with everyone to avoid the potential for a big mess. If everyone is cool with a love triangle, then by all means, keep it going. Still, I think it’s hard to make these things last. More lovers just leaves more room for disagreement and hurt feelings — eventually someone involved is going to want something legit or else will simply want to call it quits.

Wise Guys: What Does It Mean to Have Sex Like a Woman?

April 3, 2012


photo via flickr

Advice from three of EMandLO.com’s guy friends. This week they answer the following: “We read a lot about women who ‘have sex like men.’ What do you think it would mean to ‘have sex like a woman’?” To ask the guys your own question, click here.

Straight Single Guy (Tom Miller): I think it just means liking to have your hair pulled. I kid. I think, very broadly stereotyping here, that a fella who wanted to have sex like a woman would want to take things very slowly. Hours of foreplay followed by slow, rhythmic lovemaking, plenty of eye contact and scented candles. Afterwards there would be much cuddling. But, in real life, some ladies like it hard and fast and doggie-style and some guys want to orgasm simultaneously and hold hands and collapse into tearful, sleepy embrasure. Allegedly, it’s easier for dudes to have sex without emotional connection, but who knows if that’s true.

anonymous_suitStraight Married Guy (Figleaf): I hate it when people say this or that woman “has sex like a man.” No, it just means we’ve got really dim stereotypes about women and sex. So I’m not enthusiastic about rising to the “sex like a woman” bait. But if I had to answer I’d say “to have sex like a woman” would be to (only on average, obviously): a) when younger, have sex slightly more often than he really felt like it but not quite as long as he liked when he did have sex; and b) when older have sex slightly less often than she really felt like it but a little longer than she liked when she did have sex.

Another way that, I think, a lot of people have sex that is attributed to “sex like a woman” is noticing all the really pleasurable things about sex that aren’t orgasms… while possibly wondering why he can’t have orgasms with his partner as easily as he can have them by himself.

joel_derfner_100Gay Married Guy (Joel Derfner, author of Swish): I’m going to go with wishful thinking here and say it means having orgasms that last twenty seconds and can be repeated over and over and over again. You lucky bitches.
