Why He Needs a Boys' Night Out

Man with a plan…

Where you go is your business, but any hombre will tell you that the best spot involves sports, booze and chicks — but not necessarily in that order. The idea is to chill out, so anything that keeps you from thinking about your daily problems is excellent.

What will eventually determine your destination is the level of wildness you're willing to attain. Single guys never have trouble with this one; they can sit in a nightclub with their pants down to their ankles without having to make any excuses. But anyone with the proverbial ball and chain has some serious decisions to make.

In the end, your level of "craziness" is directly proportional to the despotism of your spouse. If she keeps you on a tight leash, chances are you won't be getting lap dances in a limo. Well, that's if you're afraid of her. On the other hand, sometimes a control freak wife will drive you to the edge of insanity, and that's when you'll be the wildest.

If, alternatively, your woman is loving, trusting and understanding, no run-of-the-mill testosterone-fueled fellow in his right mind would do anything to damage the relationship. Her open-mindedness is thus the ultimate yardstick by which your wildness can be measured.

But should you decide to go the untamed way, be wary of long-lasting proof. Pictures can be taken and they may not be to your advantage. Keep track of who has the negatives and copies, and be sure you're able to convince that person to be selective with whom he chooses to show them off to.
