It's not fair, women have more taste buds on their tongues:(
Though it sounds like something you’d give some serious feminist side-eye, studies suggest that women really do seem to be the more “sensitive” gender.

Leave to women to know how to please a woman...

Two ingenious women created a new vibrator that became a crowdfunding success. What their Indiegogo video - Their close to the video had me rolling in laughter.

You may know how I’m a huge champion of brotherhood, how as men we need more than male friends. I get it with my men’s groups. My good friend Mike Hrostoski’s is doing it with his The School for Me...

When I had was growing up there was Playboy... now there is the Internet. My mother bought me playboy, yes she bought me a magazine with naked women. Her logic was it would get me to read. She was right. After getting bored with the pictures, I actually did read the articles.

We are seeing more and more men in our groups and trainings addicted to Internet porn. As with any addiction, it's a struggle to quit. As the men release their shame and what is behind their addictions, often they end their addiction.
In a turn of events both unexpected and welcome, Russell Brand joined the ranks of those speaking out against pornography in a video posted to his YouTube channel. Brand makes a powerful and unapol...

We are told that Internet porn is an epidemic. It's ruining men sex drive, their relationships and even their brains. A new study questions some of these beliefs.

What should we do with porn?
New research defies the common wisdom that looking at pornography destroys sex drive.

Being a man doesn’t need to be a solo event. We can use other men to shorten our journey.
Manning up is less being macho, and more having the courage to seek the help you need. I am a man who tried to do it alone then got smart where I sought help, I can tell you the second way is much better. In fact, investing in myself was the best investment I ever made.

In relationship with a woman, a purely sensitive man will eventually lose the woman. 
The relationship may not actually end, but much of its lifeforce will just slip away.   #trueman    -
A woman needs a man to be a true man. He needs to be strong, he needs to say no, push back if she tries to be domineering, and possibly risk the relationship for his truth.

Assertiveness and being the “alpha” male is very attractive for many women. But there’s a difference between being assertive and aggressive, and this scene definitely crosses over to the aggressive side. A clear set up for a dysfunctional relationship #assertiveness

Successful givers -- the nice people who finish first -- are selfless givers, but not self-sacrificing givers. By using these strategies, you’ll steer clear of the takers in life, and avoid being the doormat. #beingassertive
In business, some people who are kind get crushed but others come out ahead of the people who aren't very nice at all. Science has an explanation.

Discovering how to be a Freeman… stumbling towards Remarkable –

Business owner, blogger, Rolfer, men’s group developer, skier and connoisseur of nature. I like helping others create what they thought impossible, be a body that works or a life that is Remarkable - through combining innovative techniques and the caring of an old friend. 

We live in a time where so much of our interaction is virtual, fast and not personal – we need real interactions. Through developing a micro-community you give yourself what our ancestors had in their tribes, friends that support you beyond your limitations. I teach men and women how to create groups that are intimate communities of sponsorship.

I blog for men and the women who love them at: As men we aren’t bad or broken – we never were taught what we needed to learn to be the men we want to be.We were never taught the traits of Masculine Emotional Intelligence.

My passion for men winning as men created Free to Win, a training company for men. We help men get back what it means to be a man – a man that gets to just show up as himself. Our nonprofit, Men Corps give men all they need to start their own free micro-community or men’s group. The documentary fill About Men explores the Sandpoint Men’s Group’s unique model of men’s groups.

    Free2Win is not your usual personal growth development plan. It is not a place for you to embrace your feminine side, learn how to emote like a woman, or find peace in the banality of today's suburbia living. Free2Win is a program, and a community, and it is indeed for men. It is where men come to learn how to be free, and to learn that being free is the first step to succeeding: To winning at the life YOU want to create for yourself.
