Take Away: An Invaluable Lesson

There is no all-encompassing formula for relationships. The diversity of individuals in this world ensures no possible algorithm for success, so consider yourself fortunate if you get it right and find someone whose values and perspectives beat to the rhythm of your own life. Truthfully speaking – my first relationship failed miserably. But on the […]

Here’s How Russel Wilson Keeps The Good Guy vs Bad Guy Conversation Going

“Will He Wait In 2015?” was a piece that I wrote back in July here on SBM. The piece used the new relationship between Russell Wilson and Ciara as proof that there are men that will abstain from sex with the right woman.

Do Men Care About Dogging Women?

Today I Nancy Kerrigan on thin ice with the stance I’ll take. You can always depend on Buzzfeed to bring you nuanced entertainment and information. I happen to enjoy most of their content.

I figured that this was the perfect time to rehash one of those really good conversations on celibacy. You see, America’s Golden Boy Russel Wilson currently dates the “cute an ting” Ciara. In a recent […]

Why Being Fiscally Responsible Is Sexy

It’s amazing how many layers to dating there are. The more time flies by, the more different things begin to matter more to me. These things aren’t usually things that you can see. They’re really ideas, attitudes, and philosophies I look for a potential prospect to have. In conversing with different people, I try to […]

Is God Responsible For Sexual Chemistry?

I think one of the greatest beauties in life is the fact that there is so much to debate. There is so much to discuss and so much room to gain more understanding. Once in a while I am lucky to be inspired to write about something that I think would make a great debate […]

How Can Your New Lover Measure Up To Your Ex In Bed?

This past weekend I was able to watch Chris Rock’s “Kill The Messenger” stand up special again. If you’ve followed my writing you know that I gain a lot of inspiration from stand up acts. We laugh at most jokes because we relate. Kill The Messenger is one joint that grew on me over time. […]

Ask A Black Man: The Experience

  We are in full swing of the second season of Ask A Black Man on Madame Noire. I had the opportunity to participate and was glad to. I was a fan of the first season and appreciated what the series was striving for. There’s nothing like seeing guys come together and speak candidly on […]
