Man Up!: SF Weekly tries Male Brazilian Waxing (Semi NSFW)

  • The New Millenium Male flexes and waxes!

The days of definitive categorizations and labels for the modern male has lapsed and the MANual is in need of a major rewrite. In every new monthly installment of Man Up!, Juan De Anda and other male writers  will partake in activities that may have been deemed too “girly,” taboo, or crazy for men to participate in — ranging from manscaping to bridge climbing to Spanxing — in order to delve in the myriad of possibilities for masculine presentation and expression. 

I truly wanted to bare myself to those who happened to be reading the inaugural article of this new series. I absolutely loved the idea of stripping away antiquated ideas of what being a man meant in today’s world of bridging differences through new modes of behavior and expression. I just never thought this would become a matter of pubic concern. (No, you did not just read a typo.)

Tourism For Locals: San Francisco was Bruce Lee's Native City and There's No Homage to It

Posted By on Fri, Nov 14, 2014 at 10:05 AM

The Man. The Master. The San Franciscan - BRUCE LEE FOUNDATION

  • The Man. The Master. The San Franciscan

San Francisco is a boastful of its famous residents and milestones — past and present — the City erects monuments and dedicates plaques to momentous events like the creation of television and recognizes when it has been the birthplace to the famous. 

But San Francisco is suffering from a case of regional amnesia — one of the greatest heroes of cinema and pop culture has no formal recognition of San Francisco being his hometown.  

We are talking about one of the greats here, one who has been omitted from the collective public memory of S.F. municipal fame — the man, the myth, the martial arts master Bruce Lee

Video of the Day: Last Chance to Visit the Exploratorium Before It Moves

Posted By on Wed, Jan 2, 2013 at 8:30 AM

The Embarcadero has seen a fair bit of controversy in recent years. There were tense negotiations over how much leeway the city would give the America's Cup race, a downright nasty political fight over the 8 Washington project, and now some residents are objecting to development plans for a new Golden State Warriors arena. But the waterfront will be gaining one tenant this year that we're pretty sure everyone will love, and that's the Exploratorium.

Top Six Strangest Anal Sex Toys

Posted By on Fri, Aug 3, 2012 at 12:30 PM

Did you know August is Anal Sex Month? That's right, while fisting gets a mere day, anal sex gets an entire, glorious month. Stand aside Asthma Awareness Month (or should we say bend over? Sorry!), it's time to take a ride on the Dirty Caboose.

Since it's August 3, we're behind (sorry) in breaking this breaking news to you. But (sorry) we felt we'd be remiss not to tell you about the unofficial San Francisco holiday that celebrates backdoor knocking.

We think about anal sex fairly often. Partially because our Smart phone always tries to autocorrect "texting" with "rectum," but also because this is San Francisco. We believe in fairness. And is there a more equal opportunity orifice than the asshole? We think not. We've also, (unfortunately?) seen some pretty strange anal sex toys in our time, and in the spirit of giving, we'd like to share our top six, all-time WTF toys.

But first, if you want to go deeper (we're not sorry about that one), then check out Good Vibes' handy how-to guide on anal pleasure.

Without further a doo-doo:

Photo of the Day: Breeders Beware

Posted By on Mon, Jun 18, 2012 at 8:30 AM

In honor of Father's Day yesterday, we dug up this cringe-worthy slide show on the 20 Worst Fathers in History. Among them is Pete Doherty (pictured above). The drug-addled sometime robber and occasional sexer-up of Kate Moss has, contrary to sound evolution, managed to breed twice. One kid he sees occasionally. The other he neither sees nor speaks of regularly. Says Doherty of the kid with whom he has no relationship: "Poor little fucker." From your crack-smoking lips to God's ears, Pete.

Find out who else made the cut in our handy slide show and be grateful you weren't sired by any of these men.

The Hangover 2: A Drag Queen Asks, "Where's the Beef?"

Posted By on Fri, Jun 3, 2011 at 12:40 PM

header_tucktown.jpg
It is always a little bit exciting and a little bit nerve-wracking to wake up to an e-mail from your editor. "Uh-oh, what have I said now?" is usually what runs through my mind. But luckily for me, this week it was a special assignment!! Oh yes, I'm moving up quick!!

"Oh, you want me to see The Hangover (pause) 2?" Hmm, was this e-mail meant for the sports guy? (Do we have a sports guy?) The beer blogger?"

No, in fact, it was meant for me. You see, it was brought to my attention that there may be some questionable rifts on the gay/trans community in the movie, and that my most colorful of takes on it would be greatly appreciated! Well if that wasn't all I needed to hear to now make me want to see it, and see what the fuss was all about (for free naturally, all in the name of research).

I did see the first Hangover (not in the theater, puhlease), and thought it was funny and entertaining. I didn't really notice anything too un-PC in it, but generally, I like lowbrow, dirty, vulgar comedy, so I was eager to see what the new installment of this brocom was all about. (Okay, my roommate gave me brocom, but I can't help thinking it sounds like a dude convention!)

All things considered, The Hangover 2 is pretty freaking hilarious (for free). It's dirty, it's crass, it's vulgar, and it's funny. (Remember, they're not discussing rocket science here.) There are obvious holes in the "plot" and everything gets wrapped up all nice, cute, and convenient in the end blah blah blah zzzzzzzz! Let's cut to the chase and get to the juicy bits, so to speak.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
