I am a hardcore reader. This has been true since I was a young boy sneaking through my mother’s novels, up until now where I fly through about two books a week. Reading has never been a bother; it has been a privilege. When I first started to think about writing a book, I was going to make it an extension of the Hall, and expound upon a topic that I felt would be helpful to our young men. My aim was to write a book about confidence. I wanted to show boys how to attain it, through proven methods, and personal ones that have helped me through the years. When I got to about 30,000 words I began to do research on reader demographics, and what I found knocked the wind out of my sails. I put a stop to the book, which I… [Read more]

Time and time again I run into men and women that have big dreams but lack the ability to set them in motion. To them, people who move on their ideas have a special gift; more drive, and more education. I don’t think that this is true. Many times an idea being made into a reality has to come from you breaking ground and attempting to build–even if it’s completely wrong. What I have found is that as you build upon it, the people that know how to do it correctly will help you out in correcting your approach and when you have it built incorrectly, you will have no qualms with tearing it down and trying again. The biggest part in all of this is that you put forth the effort. “A brilliant idea with no execution is worthless” Have you ever met someone… [Read more]

Day by day we see reports of how well women are doing in the workplace leaning-in,cracking nuts and doing the damn thing. At the same time we are hearing about the failure of men at being fathers, being earners, and being educated. We are reminded that women are enrolling in college at record rates while the numbers for men are shrinking. We are rarely if ever given a reason why this is happening or a solution. Recently the website Top Masters in Education developed an infographic that tells the sad tale of how boys are fighting a losing game when it comes to academia. Quoted from the site:   In the beginning of life, boys and girls start out on mostly even footing. But not long after that, things begin to change. For every 100 females … born … 105 males are born who are enrolled… [Read more]

Penis size seems to be one of the many confidence inhibitors for young men – we have written about the reasons many times here. I say “young” men because I’ve noticed that as I get older, I notice less men discussing this issue, and more men being comfortable with themselves to let it all hang out no matter who is looking on. Hell, I know guys who would happily stand back 10 feet from the urinal just to see the urine arc if the rest of us weren’t ready to kill them if they ever tried it. Most men don’t care about another man’s “junk” unless that man is lacking confidence and curious to see if you’re bigger than them. Sigh. How much impact does size have on a woman? Recently I overheard these teenagers talking about sex education in school and how their teacher… [Read more]

Despite my reluctance to title this article with such a polarizing and subjective word as “good” the content that I am writing about basically requires it. Ideas about what a “good girl” is and what it requires to be a good girl are so rooted in our upbringing, our culture and the times that we are living in. In an article I read about Good Girls in the New Millennium there is a girl that is described as a “good girl”, she is a 28 year old Hispanic woman that waited until after college to have sex for the first time since she was trying to protect herself from an unplanned pregnancy. The story continues with the outcome of when a smart, educated woman finally does have sex, she contracts gonorrhea from one partner and then genital warts from another. Alicia felt stuck—she’d done “the… [Read more]

“Spurglar: a woman who steals sperm to ‘accidentally’ fall pregnant”. Thank you Cosmopolitan for coming up with a new word to define this act. Sure the number of women that are seeking education and careers are getting higher (very thankful to be in that category) and yes when this happens the age that women AND men become parents also has a tendency to also be higher. But does this mean that women should be stealing sperm to get pregnant? Being a single parent definitely isn’t a new concept nor is it an impossible task but should this be the aim that men or women should be seeking? This article was limited to women that had stolen sperm but men can be just as guilty of this too. In my single days, I went on a date with a guy that I met on an online… [Read more]

Whenever there is a crisis it seems that the first line of defense that people always take is to shame the perpetrators into changing. In our modern, cynical society this strategy is a waste of time. Shaming and repeating the same accusations also tends to make the accusers look like whiners versus garnering support from those who watch from the sidelines. It is akin to a court trial where the court looks for an accusation, a judgment, and of course a verdict which could lead to punishment. The way that we have been going at deadbeat dads is like a judge who keeps on repeating the accusations without allowing the court proceedings to move forward. So what should we be doing? Personally I believe that there are 2 factors that can possibly slow the tide of absentee fathers. These factors are the abandoned male children… [Read more]

When a man is in his late teens and a bit beyond the world seems like a vast landscape of opportunity – especially when it comes to sex. A young man’s dream is to bag so many different flavors of women that by the time he is 40/50 years old he can say that he’s done it all with no regrets along the way. Most young men don’t even think this deep but the hormones are ablaze and the scent of a woman is intoxicating. As we mature and the reality of the world sets in most men evolve. We become a bit more cynical, tired of games, rejection over what we view as trifles and the chase begins to feel childish. Some men grow to be blunter while the richer, more successful are opened to a new world where women have begun to actually… [Read more]
