Sex Statistics: we’re not doing it as much (or as well) as we think we are! 22 February 2014 Comments Off on Sex Statistics: we’re not doing it as much (or as well) as we think we are!

Some amazing stats on British sexual behaviour just released. See report below. Find myself wondering if the universally easy access to porn is turning us into a nation of w*nkers. It’s depressing that in an era of supposed openness about sex,  so many (men espcially) are apparently still unwilling to get help in this area […]

“How Men Think”. Funny, or dumb? 21 February 2014 Comments Off on “How Men Think”. Funny, or dumb?

Was it coincidence that I was just forwarded some more tired man jokes. I’m not quite sure which gender comes off worse here, but either way I’d feel impelled to say: “if your relationship communication is anything like this…get away, far away, and pronto!” ) How men think  Men are not mind readers  Learn to […]

Taking a joke? 18 February 2014 Comments Off on Taking a joke?

Was surprised to be sent the below by a female friend of mine who thought it was ‘witty’. Mainly because it isn’t. It’s even more depressing that this was written by a man! Put me in mind of Les Dawson on one of his off nights..       What tired old stereotypes these are. But it’s been […]

Is FeMANism ‘anti-men’? 15 February 2014 Comments Off on Is FeMANism ‘anti-men’?

I’ve been having adebate on the ‘Men’s Rites of Passage’ Facebook with Glen Poole (‘Director of the consultancy Helping Men, UK co-ordinator for International Men’s Day and author of the book Equality For Men) which was sparked off by my post promoting the Guardian campaign to eliminate FGM ( http://tinyurl.com/p4fk8oc ) and suggesting that as […]

Letter to my daughter 12 February 2014 Comments Off on Letter to my daughter

A letter purportedly written by a man to his son giving advice about how to behave well with his girlfriend (mostly in relation to sex) has been doing the social media rounds lately. I thought I’d imagine writing  to my daughter to give her some advice and insights about how to relate to boys. “Dear daughter: […]

How can sex education tackle porn when it doesn’t even tackle real sex? 8 February 2014 Comments Off on How can sex education tackle porn when it doesn’t even tackle real sex?

I copied this from a blog called “The V Spot” run by two feisty young feminists on the New Statesman site. It’s worth a look, for men who are interested in a female perspective on  gender, sex and relationships. I learned a lot, anyway. This piece is obviously aimed at girls and women, but there’s […]

Size matters 7 February 2014 Comments Off on Size matters

If we think showing everyone we’ve got a bigger one makes us safe, and the upstanding rocket in our collective pocket means we’re men of the world, able to call the shots and attack with abandon in the name of defence, then we must have forgotten: small is beautiful; and small is strong!translating agenciesлобановский класскопировальный […]

Sexy after Sixty? – a woman responds! 6 February 2014 Comments Off on Sexy after Sixty? – a woman responds!

I couldn’t resist posting this  response received from a woman, to yesterday’s posting (also from a woman) about ‘British men of a certain age’. ‘I’d have to take issue with the idea that we can pigeonhole what a British man is, or what a 60+ man is necessarily like! We’d get really annoyed if a […]

Sexy after Sixty? 5 February 2014 Comments Off on Sexy after Sixty?

Just got this from a woman friend of mine. Thought provoking? ” I was thinking today about how unsexy British men are in general especially when they get past 60 – it’s like they wither. I can spot a man who is still having sex after 60 at ten yards.  They see women – actually […]

Becoming better at finding and growing a healthy relationship? 3 February 2014 Comments Off on Becoming better at finding and growing a healthy relationship?

An important  step in developing a healthy relationship is for a man to remove within himself all need to please or appease a woman in order to “be loved”.  Needing that validation from outside will leave him susceptible to being manipulated, if a woman senses his need and chooses to give or withhold her affections […]
