There seems to be a “First Date Sex” theme going on this week thus far, with the article I just posted on the Social Dating site and the post I’m about to post right now, perhaps it was my own recent one-night stand experience.
This being said … Always use a condom! I will admit that I have not — and in my mind it’s like pointing a gun to your head because you just never know what you can catch and who, he or she has been with… YIKES! that’s a scary thought!
This conversation about safe sex will be continued. I think it’s an important topic as singles…
I would also love to hear you own personal thoughts on safe sex.
Two guys debate whether or not to bring a condom on a first date.

This morning two kids stopped me while I was running down the Venice Beach pier to tell me that you can hear your voice echo in the middle.
It made me think of life and the ripple effect — how everything we do leaves and imprint, even something that seems somewhat small like an echo that’s shouted into space…
Speaking of imprints… for the record I have recovered from feeling extremely used by my one-night stand, however like an echo it did have an effect on my life — a good one!
My one-night stand experience reinforced what I already know, that’s whether it’s a good or bad imprint I’m a firm believer in karma, also that it’s a very small world and to never burn a bridge, because chances are more than likely that you will bump into that person again, and when that happens I want “The Echo Effect” to feel GOOD!

Grooming Tips from BeBetterGys.com.
This is one of the better grooming lists I’ve seen. All I can say that my, “One Night Stand” would not have happened if he had gross body hair, spoke like a sailor, had dirty finger nails and reeked of too much aftershave…
Gentlemen take note — I’m getting a Brazilian wax this afternoon, well because I think having hair ripped out of my vagina is great, NOT! It absolute torture and I have a glass of wine before to endure it. Bottom line– it goes both ways!
Dating – Pre-Game Grooming Tips
You’ve got a date in a few days, or even a few hours, and you want to know what you can do to perform that final check down and ensure that you’re bringing your “A” game to the table, or museum, or movie, or whatever the two of you have decided to do. Proper attention to grooming and hygiene goes a long way to making or breaking your image come game time. What we’re talking about is more than a shower and shave, although that’s a good start.There is stuff you can do just prior to your date to improve your odds of making a good impression without making wholesale changes in your appearance. Just like athletes who have their pre-game rituals that they change up from time to time to improve their on-field performance (today, I will wear tall tube socks instead of short ones, three wristbands, one on my elbow, and a headband), you want to do everything you can beforehand to make sure you’re making your best impression. These little attentions-to-detail send subtle, non-verbal cues to her that you have your game together. Remember, she’s already interested in the online you; now it’s time for the “real” you to measure up.
Plus, because you never know how a day will end or where you’ll find yourself, you want to be prepared. Don’t leave these things up to chance — that’s what being a better guy is about.
The Be BetterGuy’s Guide to Good Pre-Date Grooming
* Get a hair cut. If you have to think about how long it’s been since your last cut, it’s been too long. Hey, even Steve Nash got wise, lost that co-ed hairstyle of his and picked up a more stylish look. A quick trim or cut is a good move before you two meet in person. If you don’t have a barber/stylist, ask a friend who has a style you like where he gets his hair cut. No, he won’t think you’re trying to pick him up.
* Check and trim all excess body hair. Think of this as doing to yourself what the grounds crews do right before the teams take the field. That is, make sure your “field” is in top condition. Most women we know don’t like hairless guys and we’re not suggesting full body hair removal. But if you’ve basically got a “hair shirt,” trim the hairs around your shirt neckline so you don’t have any errant follicles poking out and trying to make nice with your date. This includes nose and ear hair–especially nose and ear hair. Use either a nose hair trimmer or small, sharp scissors. Plucking will make you cry, seriously.
* It’s eyebrows, not eyebrow. If your eyebrows are merging into one and you’re bearing a striking resemblance to the Geico caveman, you have a couple of options: you can use your razor to remove the hair (the quickest way); you can remove stray hairs with tweezers, which hurts almost as much as getting a basketball to the face; or if you have a full-blown uni-brow, you’ll want to consider waxing. That’s a job for the professionals. Read More Here

I was originally going to call this podcast, “Birds of a Penis Flock Together” — I will save that for another post. Because for me at this point in time it’s more relevant that I own up to yesterdays podcast… as you will hear it took me about seven recordings to feel comfortable with the one that I finally posted, but you know what I never really did and this is why….

Driven, successful, and…always single: Do guys really find power sexy?
by Liz Funk
Today, more women than ever are wildly ambitious and intellectually curious. According to Harvard Business School’s e-publication “Working Knowledge,” women now make up 35 to 40 percent of business school applicants; women also make up the majority in the undergraduate populations at more than one Ivy League college.
According to the BBC, the average woman’s workweek is now half a day longer than it was five years ago—sometimes with more work waiting to be done at home. The media has coined the term “alpha female” to describe these assertive, strong, successful women who are big on work.
But how do these hyper-ambitious alpha females navigate the dating land? What’s an alpha female to do if she wants a male counterpart as ambitious and powerful as she? Historically, men have been breadwinners and women have played the supporting role, and that made up a huge part of gender roles and the balance of masculinity and femininity in relationships.
