The Men's Guide 

Why we're doing this

Why we're doing this

You know the rap: Guys are insensitive. Guys are self-involved. Guys leave the lid up. All they think about is sex. They drink out of the milk carton and then put it back in the refrigerator. They pick their noses. They get behind on their alimony payments. They scratch themselves.

But underneath it all, underneath the sweat, the unspeakable smells, and the unfortunate noises, there lurks a soul. Maybe it’s a soul that doesn’t talk much, unless the subject is baseball, golf, or the curve of Uma Thurman’s neck. But that doesn’t mean the soul isn’t in there, waiting to be nurtured, waiting to be wanted, waiting (no pun intended) to come out.

Without shame or apology, we offer herewith articles that guys will actually want to read. In some cases, they are articles that only guys will understand. If that’s the way it is, so be it. Guys don’t understand articles about monthly water retention either. They never will. They don’t have to. They like it that way.

We’re not implying that being a man is necessarily better than being something else. We’re only offering evidence that being a man is an experience unlike any other.

So what if men are from Mars. It’s not like it’s another planet.
