Male Menopause: Is It Real?

Women may not be the only ones who suffer the effects of changing hormones. Some doctors are noticing that their male patients are reporting some of the same symptoms that women experience in perimenopause and menopause. The medical community is currently debating whether or not men really do go through a well-defined menopause. Doctors say that male patients receiving hormone therapy with testosterone have reported relief of some of the symptoms associated with so-called male menopause. What Is Male Menopause? Since men do not go through a well-defined period referred to as menopause, some doctors refer to this problem as androgen (testosterone) decline in the aging male, or what some people call low testosterone. Men do experience a decline in the production of the male hormone testosterone with aging, but this also occurs with some disease states such as diabetes. Along with the decline in testosterone, some men experience symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, depression, and sexual problems. The relationship of these symptoms to the decreased testosterone levels is still controversial.  Continue reading at WebMD.com

Eva Mendes Is An Even Badder Lieutenant

I’m sick and tired of hearing about this new Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans movie. Not only is the title awkward and unwieldy, but all of the goddamn coverage is blah, blah, blah Nicholas Cage. Or blah, blah, blah Werner Herzog, blah, blah, blah trippy reptiles. How about blah, blah, blah Eva freakin’ Mendes?!?!?! Doesn’t anyone care that one of the hottest ladies around is in this movie? To right that wrong, we offer the following gallery for your perusal.   Vier all her photos…

Hot New Trio: Band of Skulls

When British rock trio Band of Skulls learned their song “Friends” would be featured in New Moon, the sequel to Twilight, they were shocked. Not because the movie’s music supervisors liked it, but rather that they’d heard it at all. “We didn’t know we’d sent it out,” says singer-guitarist Russell Marsden, with a laugh. The unreleased track had accidentally been included on an advance of their debut, Baby Darling Doll Face Honey (Shangri-La) — a gritty mix of guy-girl vocals, Bonzo-style drum bashing, and scuzzy guitar. “We were still working on it, but that was the one they wanted.”   Continue reading…

Men Married To Smart Women Live Longer

Times Online

by Shane Watson

There is a lingering suspicion among girls (as the unpopularity of science subjects demonstrates) that boys don’t value cleverness as an essential quality in a life partner. Given a choice between gorgeous or brainy, there is no guarantee they’ll do the right thing, because men think they’re clever enough for two. Well, it turns out they’re wrong. Swedish scientists have discovered that long life and good health have nothing to do with a man’s education and everything to do with his wife’s. Men married to smart women live longer — simple.

However, before you ring up your girlfriend to tell her that the man who left her for a bimbo will drop dead of brain atrophy, this is not a victory for women’s intelligence in general. It would be nice if our stimulating observations about FlashForward and the Tory agenda were keeping our men alert and full of life. Unfortunately, it’s simply our skill at processing advice about healthy lifestyles, and passing it on. All it boils down to is that “educated” married women have long since banned their men from eating pork pies at every other meal. They instinctively know about the importance of breakfast, the downside of dips (men think hummus is a diet aid) and the virtues of Green & Black’s 85% (the chocolate that doesn’t count). The Carla effect, in other words, is alive and well beyond the boundaries of the Elysée Palace.

Still, this seems like a narrow reading of how a woman’s intelligence affects her husband’s health. Cholesterol-watching is only the tip of the iceberg. On top of that, there’s the whole good exercise, bad exercise battle. (Men will only do exercise that results in a calf injury, and only in binges, so they are grey with exhaustion every day for a week, then laid up for the rest of the month; we are constantly lobbying for yoga.) There’s risk-avoidance training, too. For example, the struggle to prevent men walking to work in winter with sopping wet hair, wearing only a shirt; or, my personal favourite, reminding them not to shut the tea towel in the oven door, because that’s what causes all the black smoke and flames.

For some of us, the challenge of keeping our menfolk fit and well goes way beyond encouraging them to lay off the Player’s Navy Cut. Since being married to my husband, I have had to point out that swallowing chewing gum is not normal, let alone healthy. Ditto eating food that has been showered with glass. Lighting a fire in a tent. Cooking topless. Dialling while pedalling. Smoking over an open car bonnet (just kidding, but only just). The point is, without a female in the house, most men would come to a sticky end, with or without the daily sausage sandwich.

So what’s in it for us? Back in the days when the goal was to marry a rich man, at least you could look forward to a bit of his’n’hers indulgence. Now it’s all checking the salt content of the bran flakes and pushing selenium. You can’t help feeling a bit short-changed.

When Celebrities Go Pantsless

Rihanna rocked the Today show Tuesday in little more than fishnets and a slinky white blazer, but she’s hardly the first celeb to forget her pants. Lately more and more women are going without, and some women try to turn shirts into dresses. Who’s pulling it off and whose outfit is missing one key item? You decide.    View all pantsless…

6 Sex Mistakes Men Make

Hey guys, think you know everything there is to know about having sex with women? That erotic encyclopedia you carry around in your head may contain a lot of basic errors and omissions about women’s sexuality — errors that can lead to sex mistakes.  That’s because — after learning the facts of life — most of us are left to figure out sex for ourselves. Guys tend to take a lot of cues from adult movies, and we all know how true-to-life those are. Experience may help, but many women can be shy when talking about what they like.  

Sex Mistake No.1: You Know What She Wants

Men often make assumptions about what a woman wants based upon what they’ve done with other women. But women aren’t all the same.  Read all 6 mistakes on WebMD…

Many believe behind the scenes are adults who organize and control these children as a business. This recently popular video, filmed i More..n Ningbo, China on the cheng huang miao [city god temple] street, a physical fight happens between a young post-80s generation couple and the post-00s generation street children

Understanding The Female Orgasm

When it comes to the female orgasm, most guys are confused. This is understandable considering that many men are clueless regarding the different types of orgasms and stimulations that can be given, not to mention if a certain part of the vagina has to be manipulated in order to give a woman an earth-shattering orgasm. Well, if you’re among the bewildered, have heart; today’s tip will help you understand the female genitalia and the female orgasm inside and out. what happens? When a woman orgasms, regardless of which area of her body you’re manipulating, her body physically reacts in the same way. During an orgasm, she feels: stimulation in her clitoris her heart rate, blood pressure and breathing increase tension builds within her pelvis muscles contract throughout her body, especially in the vagina, uterus, rectum, and pelvic floor tension is released upon orgasm.

Blue Clitoris
Believe it or not, it is possible for women to get what is often called “blue balls” in men. As you know by now, the clitoris and penis are remarkably similar after conception, but males go on to develop penises.  If a woman gets incredibly turned on, her clitoris, like the penis, becomes engorged with blood. If the blood isn’t released via orgasm, she will experience discomfort — just as men do.  So when you tease her, you build up awesome tension, and when she finally orgasms, it will be an explosion of release. Keep in mind, however, that roughly 26% of women have difficulty reaching orgasm. And usually, it’s her own mental block that keeps her from reaching orgasm — it’s not you.  Keep reading at AskMen.com

Complex Presents: The 10 Most Underrated New Rappers

Hard to believe it’s still possible in this age of low-budge videos and WSHH fuckery, but there’s actually such a thing as an underexposed rapper. The problem is no longer about getting your shit out there, it’s about getting your shit heard when there’s millions of other shit dropping daily. Too many choices, not enough time. Inevitably, some good MCs fall through the cracks—like our boy Wiz Khalifa, whose new album, Deal or No Deal, is out today (buy it now). The Pittsburgh rapper’s been around for a minute, but doesn’t get nearly as much buzz as many inferior peers.  Well, we at Complex are here to change all that. In honor of Wiz and other unheralded artists, we’ve put together a list of the 10 most underrated new rappers—and by “new,” we mean “relatively new.” Dudes like Curren$y and Peedi Crakk are definitely overlooked, but they’ve already had a moment in the spotlight. We looked specifically for MCs who’ve consistently flown under the radar. Read on to sample 10 rappers you need to know now  Listen for free at Complex…
