Brandy Alexander’s piece about dieting being difficult with a boyfriend as well as the one from a reader whose husband made her lose weight really made us think about the influence relationships have on our eating habits. We have always believed that the end goal of all relationships is “eating Chinese food in bed” so we assumed that everyone put on a few pounds when they were in a relationship. Did we assume right? Maybe, sort of! More
Topic: real talk
Earlier this week–as a Hunger Games-themed Real Talk–we rounded up some men and asked them their feelings on women and weight. As you may have expected, it’s now the ladies’ turn. So we asked a bunch of women what their ideal male body type was, how much body type determined the way they date, how much a man’s weight influences More
With Real Talk, we ask a bunch of random men the same set of questions, hoping to get a variety of responses. As always (and this is important) we feel compelled to say we’re not rounding up male opinions in the hopes that you’ll average them out and try to live your life according to that average, we do it because we find it interesting. Nothing more, nothing less. For Hunger Games week at TheGloss, we asked the following men about the importance they place on a woman’s weight. Many, many arguments ahead. Get ready. More
Earlier this week, we asked a bunch of random guys about anal sex* and shared their opinions in a Real Talk. Unsurprisingly, a lot of ladies commented, some agreeing, some calling bullshit. Which means, of course, it’s their turn to tackle the subject and explain why they love/hate/avoid/adore anal sex. Also, you’ll notice that every woman surveyed has been represented by a delicate butterfly even though More
It was odd assembling responses for this Real Talk about whether or not men want to have anal sex* with women. I didn’t really know what to expect but I did feel kind of uncomfortable asking a bunch of random guys (some friends, some not) whether or not they were into it. I’m not going to provide any more commentary other than this: I was surprised by how varied the responses were. So, here’s 10 guys offering up their opinions on “anal play” as it is sometimes called.

Do men just all expect blowjobs all the time? More
Probably! Or, maybe! Or… my hair looks funny today. Ever since Gerard Butler told Katherine Heigl in The Ugly Truth that men all love long hair we’ve wondered “really?” Brace yourself, the following investigative research indicates that The Ugly Truth may not be 100% factually accurate (although still more accurate than we’d like).
Most men I know have at least one strong preference when it comes to makeup. For the most part, I think those preferences are incredibly fair and sane (my first boyfriend despised girls in too much mascara, a friend of mine hates red lipstick because it always seems to be coming off on a woman’s teeth). Now, at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what other people think about your personal style and if you want to pile a pound of kohl on your face and run around screaming about how you’re rock’n roll Cleopatra reincarnated, you can do that and fuck anybody who tells you not to.

We’re doing these talk pieces called “real talk” where we enlist people to weigh in on a topic. Normally, I just drunk dial my friends at 4:00 in the morning screaming, “It’s an emergency! LADIES’ SHOES! HOW DO THEY MAKE YOU FEEL?” but I want to do one on “worst dates ever” and it turns out my friends are just fucking awesome at dating.
So, if you’d like to be a winner and anonymously share your bad date story and see it featured, drop me a line at Jennifer [at] thegloss.com. More
A lot! As always, names of those surveyed have been changed. And let us know how often you’re faking in the poll. More
I was picking up my boyfriend from the nursing home and he mumbled, spittle and applesauce flying “why don’t you do a piece on how great it is for you lovely young ladies to date nice older men?” At least, I think that’s what he said. It’s hard to tell sometimes, what with the dentures. Anyhow, here’s some input from lovely young ladies (names changed to protect all identities) who are dating older men:
Some people say that even if a relationship ends, you’ve still gained something from it: a valuable lesson. We say, yes, we have gained something from it: a winter wardrobe. More
