I get really, really sick of women’s magazines.
I resent the notion that women need to be instructed on what men want in bed or how to lose 10 pounds of belly fat in one weekend. I’m quite certain I’ve ranted about this before so I won’t be redundant.
Instead, I’ll espouse the benefits of Esquire Magazine. It’s sort of a kinder, gentler version of Maxim which is all about hot chicks and the men who love them, fast cars and other stuff that men dig. Most of the articles about women and sex center around women TELLING men what they love to do rather than some sort of instructional bullshit designed to make women feel they don’t know shit from shinola in the sack which is common practice in the pages of women’s magazines. I prefer the Maxim philosophy but that’s just me.
Esquire is where I was turned on to a funny but simple web-site: www.failblog.org
It’s not deep or profound or philosophical. Just funny. It’s kind of like that Jay Leno segment where they read misguided newspaper headlines, advertisements and comical misprints. It’s worth a visit if you want a chuckle. This is where I found the picture of a sign on a chain link fence warning about water in pool along with a newspaper headline that reads: Homicide Victims Rarely Talk To Police.
The closest thing I found to male angst in Esquire was by a British guy (got the UK version) who couldn’t decide whether to shave off his beard because he had a double chin. I read it. I laughed. It was supposed to be funny. Because angst is often funny and men seem to have a much better way of handling angst then women and aren’t afraid to exploit it in print. I find this refreshing.
Where women’s magazines direct their readers to sites about colon cleansing for weight loss and lame blogs about sex and the single guy, Esquire directs its readers here: www.todgertalk.blogspot.com
It’s much more entertaining.
