Wednesday, December 21, 2011

1 Comment

photo via Flickr We wouldn’t want you to think EMandLO.com is anally fixated or anything, we just really appreciate the whole “what’s good for the goose is good for the gander” argument when it comes to defending straight men being receptive to a little backdoor love. Hence, the second comment of the week in a [...]

How Different Are Girls’ and Boys’ Brains?

Monday, November 21, 2011

0 Comments

It’s a favorite question of ours…okay, of mine (i.e. Lo’s). And my personal answer is that yes, there are differences, but not as many or as great as our culture likes to assume or presume. And that bias we have as a society actually influences the development of boys’ and girls’ brains (which are elastic) [...]

Friday, October 7, 2011

0 Comments

We once did a photo shoot for The Sun, that super trashy but widely popular newspaper in the UK (you know, the one with the “Page 3 girl”). We were promoting the British edition of our book, The Big Bang. We were young and naive, the photographer was old and pushy, and as he gradually encouraged us [...]

photo by Americanistadechiapas Advice from three of our guy friends. This week they answer the following: “Regarding the “guy’s girl”: Is a woman who’ll shoot pool and pound a few brews automatically sexier than a girly girl?” Straight Single Guy (Chris): Let’s get this one straight once and for all. There is nothing sexier than [...]

Beyonce, Who Run the World? Not Girls.

Friday, June 10, 2011

1 Comment

Beyonce’s latest hit “Run the World” is a girl-power anthem, sort of: “Who run the world? Girls” over and over. Maybe it’s aspirational. Eh, probably not. We think this smart and harsh take by Vlogger “Nineteen Percent” is a better breakdown of the song: we don’t run the world, we do get disrespected, gypped at [...]

Comments of the Week: Living Outside the Box

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

1 Comment

photo via Flickr We recently highlighted an article by sex educator Charlie Glickman about how, in order to be perceived as “real men,” heterosexual guys have to live in a box of strict and limited gender stereotypes. It sparked a little debate in the comments section: Johnny: This article leaves women out altogether! Female reaction [...]

Wise Guys: Why Do Men Get in Touch with Past Flames?

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

8 Comments

photo by Asthma Helper Advice from three of our guy friends. This week a straight woman asks,”Why do guys get back in touch with old flames? Booty call? Rekindle the romance? To prove they’re over the woman? Just to say hi? Just got dumped and need an ego boost?” Straight Married Guy (James Glazebrook): At [...]

photo by Leeni Advice from three of our guy friends. This week a straight woman asks, “How can I get a guy to cuddle more?” Straight Married Guy (Ben): Two ways really. One — I find I’m at my cuddliest immediately post-orgasm, especially if it’s a really big one that comes from an especially intense [...]

Guys, Crawl Out of Your Man Caves

Monday, May 16, 2011

5 Comments

We like the image of Plato’s allegorical cave, but adult sex educator Charlie Glickman calls it the Man Box, or more specifically, the Act-Like-A-Man Box. In a series of blog posts earlier this month, Glickman explained how, in order to be perceived as “real men,” heterosexual guys have to live in a box of strict [...]
