What Is Movember?

movember-man

Movember is the leading global charity committed to changing the face of men’s health by sparking conversations though the growth of moustaches throughout the month of November.

The Movember Foundation exists to bring attention to health issues men face; specifically to reduce mortality from prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s suicide. And, to have fun while doing it.

But why? Lots of reasons, all men’s health specific:

- The average life expectancy for men in the United States is almost five years less than women.

- One in two men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.

- 12.1% of men 18 years and over are in fair or poor health.

- Men are 24% less likely than women to have visited a doctor within the past year.

Movember (the month formerly known as November) is used to spark conversation about and raise funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems. Movember is entering its 11th year as a charity and has raised $550 million during that time frame.

So how does it work?

1. Sign up and become a “Mo Bro” at Movember.com. Must begin the 1st of Movemeber with a clean shaven face.

2. Grow and groom a moustache for the entire month. No beards, no goatees.

3. Donate.

4. Use the moustache to create conversations and funds about men’s health.

5. Have fun.

What’s more masculine than a moustache? Nothing. And, what is more fun than a “Moustache Ride?” Uh, nothing duh.

Movember starts this Saturday.

  

Think You’re a Good Kisser? Survey Says Think Again

A new survey from yourtango.com has found that many people aren’t as good at kissing as they think.

The survey, led by YourTango, the #1 media company dedicated to love and relationships, found that the majority of people reportedly think they are pros at puckering up—however, only 53% of people believe that their partners are good kissers.

Andrea Miller, relationship expert and CEO of YourTango, says, “Our survey found that 51 percent of people say that kissing is crucial in a relationship. However, as the results show, many survey respondents think their partner could use a little work.”

The survey found that bad breath, too much pressure, and sloppiness all factored into a bad kiss.

Miller continues, “If you want to improve kissing in your relationship, my advice is to tune into the types of kisses your partner desires. We all like to be kissed differently, so find out how your partner prefers to be kissed, whether it’s soft and slow, deep and passionate, fast and fierce, etc. And, make sure that your kisses don’t fall by the wayside in your long-term relationship! Kiss your partner everyday, even if you have to make a reminder to do so in your smartphone.”

BarberShopBlog on location at the Oral-B USA 500 with COMBOS Curiosities

Certain things are obvious #GoodCombos, like the hacker and that iCloud he hacked to gift the world with nude pics of Jennifer Lawrence, Ariana Grande and Bar Rafaeli, aka ”The Fappening.

A #BadCombo could potentially be 95 degree heat and endless asphalt. But COMBOS came up with a solution.

COMBOS Curiosities are here to test every combination available. They posses an admitted “bottomless appetite for combinations,” because “the world is a much better place with more COMBOS around.”

With that in mind, COMBOS created The Hydrant Soaker, a combination Super Soaker and fire hydrant, and unleashed it on an unassuming public at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

And the people were pleased. It was hailed as a #GoodCombo by those who clamored to hose off, in what for some was probably their first almost legitimate shower of the week.
