Men's guide to buying lingerie for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is this Friday. As I surf the internet, one things that I keep noticing pretty much everywhere is guides for men who are buying lingerie as a gift this holiday.

In fact, a quick search of Google tells me that there are currently more than 6.2 million lingerie gift buying guides available for men on-line. All of them promise to walk the fine line between helping a guy find something that he will like to see on the woman in his life yet still be something that she will want to wear.

I haven't reviewed every single one of them, although it has been fun to make my way through as many of them as possible. Regardless, I suspect that everyone of those 6.2 million lingerie gift buy guides gets it wrong in one way or another. This, of course, is based purely on the feedback that I've overheard from significant others of friends.

The good news is that as long as the guy gets to see the recipient wearing the gift at least once, it's still worth it.

Open letter to the Detroit Free Press

Dear Editors of the Detroit Free Press:

Rima Fakih - Miss USA press photo
Earlier today, you published a post on your website that invited visitors to vote as to which famous woman had the best cleavage. This, of course, is yet another example of click bait.

I know that the internet age has made it hard to do professional journalism in the 21st century. Many outstanding newspapers have shut down and countless others are struggling simply to get by. The fact that we are both working in an economically challenge city like Detroit certainly does not make things easier for you.

I get all of these things. I really do.

However, I regret to inform you that rating cleavage is my gimmick, not yours. Please find a new one.

Thank you,
Frank Nemecek
