Check This Out #22: Slut shaming, gap years and muscular men

Writing:

There’s No Such Thing as a Slut
This is a really interesting article on slut-shaming, and confirms what we’ve said in previous podcast episodes: the vast majority of slut-shaming is done by women, and it’s done as a form of female-female competition. [Note: Men do use the word slut of course, but it’s mostly by guys who have had their feelings hurt in some way and are lashing out at the woman]

Why I’m NOT Going Back To School
We’ve also said this in an earlier podcast episode. Taking a year out between high school and college can be incredibly beneficial. This post details the reasons why – but a big one is that it forces you to fend for yourself, develop social skills and learn how to talk to new people, all of which are hugely helpful when it comes to meeting women.

 

Research:

Do representations of male muscularity differ in men’s and women’s magazines?
Men tend to overestimate how much work they need to put into their bodies to be attractive to women. This paper compares how men are portrayed in magazines aimed at men, like Men’s Health, with female magazines like Cosmo, and shows that the male body advertised to men is much more muscular than the male body advertised to women.

The D.E.N.N.I.S System – It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia
If our advice isn’t working out for you and you need something a little more structured, try the DENNIS system. But don’t blame me if you end up in jail or the girl slashes your tires or you hate yourself, because this is one of the stupidest things I’ve ever seen (Disclosure: I don’t like that show at all).
