We men are typically good at being closed off, refusing to ask for help on some of the larger problems of our times. There are countless issues that need to be dragged out into the open, so we can all learn from one another. That's where I step in. Just think of me as your safe place. Read more

Y Me: Readers get real about fantasy cheating with sexy celebrities

A few weeks ago, I wrote about celebrity cheat lists, and how they are a means by which women manipulate men into staying faithful by pretending to be cool enough to let them cheat with a woman they will likely never meet.

Y me? If you want a date, take the coward's way in

Y Me column

Y Me?: Looking for lust in online places

In my continuing effort to dredge the Internet's seedy underbelly in search of romance, I've stumbled across several hookup sites. Maybe I'm a little prudish, but these sites sound as if they're a good way to find yourself awoken from a drug-induced sleep in a bath tub full of ice, missing a kidn... Read more

Y Me?: Putting the 'ex' in exclusive

This week I thought I'd regale you with a cautionary tale.
