Men react to the scents of your secret garden in different ways. While one man may find the scent alluring and intoxicating, another man may find it overpowering, disgusting and even unbearable. We men are gun shy when it comes to being offensive to women and as much as we love to fight, we can be the biggest cowards when an upset woman is involved. One of the biggest issues that men refuse to tell their women for fear of confrontation is about vaginal odor. Yes chances are that your perfect ex-boyfriend dumped you for being funky and not because he got busy like he told you. It happens, although I cannot quote a number as to how often it happens, fact of the matter is that it happens and you will never know. Now don’t get me wrong as this is not always a… [Read more]

Recently I was enjoying some good old school reggae, when I heard Maxi Priest burst onto the air waves with the rhythmic “Hey Fatty, Fatty”.  I was always under the assumption that unlike the U.S., many African and Caribbean nations held fat women as desirable icons of beauty.  I paused to really listen to the words, only to realize Maxi Priest was actually berating her for being fat. He belts out– “Hey Fatty Fatty, why are you behaving like that (go long so)? When you come to the party/club (dance) you do your own thing! You move your hips like they are on a hinge. You do the “round-the-world”, you do the “electric move”, you do the “water-pumping”, and you say you want to “bubble” with me. You walk down the road as if you are slim, because you don’t know that in town you… [Read more]

A true hustler is born not made, sometimes the hustle is within but it lays dormant, asleep and unseen. It may take a life-changing experience, meeting the right mentor or even education to wake up the hustle, but once it’s awake other hustlers will recognize it. To this reasoning I do not take people seriously that are “pretend hustlers” or “big game talkers”. These guys are everywhere and make up a majority of people you meet at mixers, business meetings and (clears throat) “grown folks night”. Recently it came to my attention that a certain sect of successful women are recruiting these guys for their husbands and then trying to make hustlers out of them. These women have the game backwards, you support the hustle, you don’t invent it! A hustler on the come-up for some real cash flow is normally a busy, focused guy…. [Read more]

Rule #36 (A Man’s Code) All men should have a code, it is optimum in living by principles and having people learn your principles and respecting you for having them. When you live life freelance and do things however you feel within the moment, it will appear that you are chaotic, unpredictable and untrustworthy. The most memorable and powerful men in life have codes, we know of those codes because they exemplified them throughout their living years. We emulate men such as these and many people will try and copy their ways without fully understanding the commitment needed to doing so. A man must develop his own path, regardless of how borrowed it may be and make a commitment to stand by it for life. Rule #37 (Word is Bond) A man without his word is nothing, unless it is a man who lives on… [Read more]

Dear Dragon, do you think it’s wrong to not put on your Facebook that you are in a relationship or hide your relationship status when you do? – Daryl.A I hate Facebook, there I said it, it’s a necessary evil for us web inhabitants and it is pretty much an ego stroke more so than a communication portal. See with MySpace people would express themselves through glittery, god-awful graphics, goofy pictures and the latest songs. Facebook lacks all of that ugly gaudiness so now we suffer through bible verses in status updates, relationship updates, celebrity spam, Hall of The Black Dragon spam and NSFW clips posted to your wall. Being that as it may, it is still extremely useful, it is super popular and it is another avenue of exposure and attention. Many women LOVE attention, not all (waves to my fellow introverts) but many… [Read more]

There are times when a man will find himself in a situation where he must choose between appearance and comfort. The standard of our time is to choose the latter especially if there is no need to impress a female (the man is either married or in a lengthy relationship). While this standard may seem ideal and “comfortable”, it goes away from the warrior standard. The ancient Samurai known to be the most impressive of warriors stressed appearance as well as skill on the battlefield. An unseemly appearance before and after being cut down in battle was shameful. For this an ideal Samurai would have his armor clean, and beautiful, his nails clipped and together, his hair tight and his appearance solid prior to joining the ranks to do war. Men of today use the logic of “I am going to die anyway so who… [Read more]

Women hate the 10 point scale that men apply to their looks, they absolutely do. But here’s the thing ladies, it isn’t going anywhere because we guys are simple and it places a simple answer to a complex question. A question that is often asked whenever someone describes a woman that they want to convey as attractive ie: “man this girl is BAD, hot as hell, a straight up 9, I’ll go as far as giving her a 10 because she’s nice too”. This in man language translates to “I am temporarily stunned by this woman’s beauty and I want you to be as stunned as I am so that you are impressed that I have a chance with her.” Normally when we see the chick she’s like a 7, or an 8, cute as a button but not exactly our flavor (most men have… [Read more]

Most people these days frequent some sort of gym to keep themselves in shape.  Whether you go to Powerhouse Gym, Lifestyles, Gold’s, LA Fitness, Bally’s, or any number of athletic facilities you are going to share it with hundreds of people.  Sharing anything with hundreds of people is typically never fun, convenient, or easy to do.  Since this is already an annoying process there are rules you can follow to make things less annoying for yourself and others around you. Most people do not think their behavior in the gym is annoying or troublesome to other people.  That comes from the fact that many people lack the ability to analyze themselves internally, and identify things they are doing wrong or incorrectly.  Here are several things people do in the gym that are annoying to fellow patrons. Stop with the grunting everyone knows that you are… [Read more]
