Do men kiss and tell?

Mr. Answer Man says: Short answer: yes. Here in the new millennium, we men are supposed to talk about our feelings, and as it turns out, we do. And while in general women are still more talkative (Mr. Answer Man knows way more about his female friends' lovers than he does about those of his male friends), men do kiss and tell differently than women.

(Let's set aside, for the moment, men who brag indiscriminately about their sexual exploits. This is locker room behavior and always says volumes more about the guy's insecurity than it does about his ability to curry favor with women.)

Guys, in general, will become less talkative as a relationship progresses. Maybe it's the growing intimacy that creates the increasing reticence, but a man is much more likely to share the salient details while it's all fresh and new. After that it becomes more and more private -- something to be honored rather than shared.
