Fashion. Sex. Hair. Dating. We love reading women's magazines because, well, even if they're not War and Peace, they cover some fun topics. But have you ever wondered how women's magazines might change if they were written by men like your own dear S.O.? We asked iVillagers: If your husband or boyfriend wrote an article for a women's magazine... what do you think he would write about?
- "How to Give Your Husband a Great After-Work Massage. Every Single Day."
- Probably something to do with computer games — along the lines of "more women should play them."
- That fine line in a relationship where love turns into hate. It is a bigger mystery to him than space exploration, cancer research or nuclear power.
- An article on Texas Holdem or a restaurant review. And god help them if he doesn't like the place.
- A column called "Fashion Don'ts." He is of the opinion that most women today just blindly follow trends without stopping to consider their best features or body type. His two big don'ts are "muffin-toppers" (women wearing ultra low-riders that are two sizes too small, with their bellies and sides cascading over the top) and "smellies" (women who wear way too much perfume). He's got a whole list going.
- He would probably make a good reality TV show reviewer!
- My husband would write a column explaining to women why owning two pairs of shoes is perfectly acceptable. Just try explaining to a man why you need several types of black heels and watch their eyes glaze over.
- He'd write about his biggest fashion philosophy: "Women look better in skirts. All women look better in skirts. Short skirts are best.Really short skirts. But if it's cold out and you really refuse to wear a short skirt, then a long skirt is okay. Long skirts are better than any pair of pants. A woman's frumpiest skirt is still sexier than her sexiest pants." Oh, and his opinion that every woman should have a minimum of seven great lingerie "outfits" — one for every day of the week.
