  1. British Medical Journal Study Reveals That Men Are Great… At Being Stupid

    Most days I'm just happy we're not extinct. Yet.

    A study from the British Medical Journal's often humorous Christmas Edition has determined that men are basically walking time bombs of stupidity. How did they make this leap of scientific understanding on par with discovering that the sky is blue, you ask? They analyzed the winners of the Darwin awards.

  2. Science Proves Chicks Dig a Guy Carrying a Guitar

    I think it's safe to work from the assumption that any guy who has ever picked up a guitar did so for one reason and one reason only -- because he heard that chicks are into guys who play guitar. According to a French study, that piece of folk wisdom may have a kernel of truth to it, as a series of social experiments suggest that women find a man more attractive when he is holding a guitar.

  3. Study Finds Men Are Better at Reading Emotions in Other Men Than in Women

    Most men -- and most women, for that matter -- have, at one point or another, had to come to terms with the fact that men just don't understand women that well. It's not that we don't try -- oh, lord, how we do try! -- but that we're not really wired that well for it. That common feeling has been backed up by scientific evidence in the last few years, with a recent study suggesting that the problem may lie in the fact that men are largely inept at reading emotional cues in women's eyes. The study also suggests that men are much better at reading emotion in the eyes of other men, demonstrating scientifically for the first time that men really do know that feel, bro.

  4. Fellas, This Animation Will Explain Why You Have Useless Nipples, In Case You Were Wondering

    Gender Bendery

    AsapSCIENCE is back with another marker animation to explain a bit of science some may not understand. Last time it was how Plan B works, this time it's to explain why men have nipples that serve absolutely no purpose. Which I'm pretty sure I learned in middle school but hey, you might still be out of the loop and this is a fun way to learn. Disclaimer: If you don't agree with the science presented this video, just remember, we didn't make it. (Just had to say it, we get that kind of thing a lot.)

  5. Female Avatars in Second Life Wear More Revealing Clothes Than Male Counterparts

    In keeping with trends set by pretty much every video game and adolescent male fantasy in the history of forever, female avatars in the digital realm are more likely to be scantily clad than their male counterparts. That's according to a study of digital fashion in online play space Second Life by researchers at Laval University, who we'd like to thank for reminding us that Second Life is still, apparently, a thing.

  6. Women Can Tell A Cheating Man, Men…Not So Much


    Cheating men may have reason to feel nervous that their significant others know what they're getting into on the side, while women engaging in flings could have an easier time hiding their indiscretions from their mate. That's according to a recent study from the University of Western Australia. Published this week in the journal Biology Letters, the study found that women were reasonably accurate at determining how faithful a man had been in his life just by looking at his face. Men in the same study, meanwhile, showed no such skill, thereby living up to the stereotype that we're never paying attention to anything. Way to go, dudes.

  7. Study Shows That When Women Say “It’s Not You, It’s Me,” It Is Totally You

    Women who have settled down with a long-term partner who is stable, dependable, and less than entirely sexy are legion, a fact for which less than entirely sexy men are thankful every day. Trust us, we know. New research from a team at UCLA shows that the operative word in that sentence might be "settled," suggesting that women still hold their partner's lack of a full head of hair and a six pack -- PBR doesn't count, dudes -- against them. When they're at their most fertile, women in relationships with average looking fellas demonstrated signs of being less happy with their partners, and more prone to find faults or criticize them, than women whose partners have it going on in the looks department.

  8. Study Confirms Men and Women See Things Differently, Blames Evolution

    A study conducted on young adults has concluded that men and women actually do see things differently. This supports the idea that we evolved to support certain hunter-gatherer roles. Men were able to better track fast-moving objects while women distinguished shades of color far more capably. This should provide a decent excuse for husbands when their wives ask for their opinion on a bunch of paint swatches.

  9. Contraceptive Gel For Men May Be On The Horizon

    The Future Is Now!

    Wouldn't it be absolutely wonderful if the burden of using the majority of contraceptive options didn't fall almost totally upon women? Thanks to an innovative birth control method involving a gel that is applied directly onto men's skin, reliable male contraceptives may not be a pipe dream any longer.

  10. "Find His Porn" Website is Creepy, Evil, Offensive to Just About Everyone

    To read the copy on the hard drive snooping website Find His Porn (emphasis theirs), you would think that the history of human relationships can be boiled down to a single conflict: On the one side, there are men who secretly spend all their time and money on porn, and women who must use any means at their disposal to ferret out these disgusting acts. If you're not offended by this, you probably should be.
