I subscribe to a lot of magazines. Sports Illustrated, ESPN, Money, Time, Skeptic, Playboy, and Entertainment Weekly off the top of my head. But my favorite magazine, by far, for the past 20 years has to be Esquire. GQ? Too fashion-y. Vanity Fair? Too celebrity. Maxim? Too douchey. For the smartest combination of entertainment, fashion, current events, opinion pieces, fiction, long-form journalism, and attractive women, Esquire is the best $10 I spend every year.
Recently, they did a piece on their website called The Great Sexiness Experiment, in which a model spent two weeks interviewing men about what they found sexy. No, this isn’t exactly hard-hitting, Pulitzer-prize winning stuff, but I thought it was revealing in a particularly EMK relevant way. If you want to understand men, talk to men.
Guys don’t care how many mental illnesses you have, if you’re doing a sexy pose on a bed they’ll still be attracted to you.
What you’ll see from this experiment is sad, but true: guys don’t care how many mental illnesses you have, if you’re doing a sexy pose on a bed they’ll still be attracted to you. Oh, and that, in the long-term, sexiness has nothing to do with physical attributes and everything to do with personality.
