Dirty Dancing

 Not all of us are blessed with the ability to dance. Many of us may be effortlessly suave and charismatic in general, but put us on a dance floor and suddenly we’re more Napoleon Dynamite than Patrick Swayze. And yet, we have to battle with the notion that many of the fairer sex seem to subscribe to, that being smooth operators on the dance floor equates to prowess in other parts of our lives. So what’s a man with two left feet and a light-footed partner to do?

A Real Man's Breakfast

From the moment we’re born, we’re thrown into an unflinchingly boy versus girl world, and for the most part, we studiously avoid straying too far from our prescribed roles lest our manhood be called into question. We’re told boys wear blue, and girls wear pink; boys play sports, while girls play with dolls. These are gender stereotypes, true, but divisions between the genders exist, even in adulthood. So in a world where everything in our lives is firmly delineated by sex, it was only a matter of time before our food became gender-specific too.

Flowers & 50 Shades of Grey for Valentine’s

Valentine’s Day is a headache, no doubt about it. There’s an onus on boyfriends, fiancés and husbands to make a stand. Even if you don’t ‘celebrate’ it, you’ve got to do something with the lady and that’s where Gift Flowers HK comes in. The 100% online florist stocks various treats for Valentine’s Day, while their sister site, Gift Hampers HK even sells a “Fifty Shades of Grey” erotic hamper ($590 delivered). However dire the writing, you can’t argue with the return you’ll get on that investment.

Porsche Simulators Meet Speed Dating

Sideways, the racing car simulator specialist, is hosting a novel speed dating night with Double Happiness Dating combining Porsches with potential love interests. We just hope the boys manage to keep the pick up lines to themselves because there’s a lot to choose from. We’re talking about being first over the finishing line, gear stick control, spark plugs, reclining seats, 0-60 in…, and “what have you got under the bonnet darling?’” It’s a minefield.

Inventive App Explains Why You Got Dumped

WotWentWrong is a cool new app that tells you why you got dumped. We like it bar the nauseating spelling of 'Wot'. We don't say wot. We're not spotty teenagers struggling to hear our mothers down the stairs. Either way, the app's useful because you might want to know why she won't speak to you any more. You thought the first date went well but you're also not the type of man who deserves a restraining order for trying to find out.

Flower Subscriptions for Busy Men

Pacific Petals is a new Hong Kong company offering online flower subscriptions all year round, which means you no longer have to puzzle over petunias yourself to make her smile. Needless to say, buying bouquets doesn't come naturally to us, but it’s an essential part of being a good (or apologetic) boyfriend. And remember, ensuring she gives you leave for that stag trip can come down to a perfectly timed flower delivery.

With Lingerie Show & Open Bar

Sheer, a new lingerie boutique on Wyndham St, is hosting a Men Only Valentine’s Party on Thursday, February 9 with a lingerie show and other treats in store. It's one for the boys that ultimately benefits the ladies, which is about as fair as Valentine's isn't. Why do we have to fork out every year for this fictional date? Still, picking quality lingerie is a clear signal of your value as a mate so it’s an evolutionary imperative to head along.

Travel Breaks for Post Break Ups

If you’ve just had a painful break up the best thing you can normally do is go on holiday and Die Liebeskuemmerer caters for exactly that market. The German company arranges holidays for 6 – 8 people suffering from the break up blues but we imagine these trips could go either way. Sure, you could have a raucous time, orgies and make friends for life or it could all end early with a suicide pact.

Aphrodisiac DinnerNext Wed

Coast Bistro & Bar, Showtime Lingerie, Belvedere Vodka and a host of other big names are holding an aphrodisiac themed dinner next Wednesday. It's bound to be a hit. After all, food and sexuality form a well trodden path to a man's heart - so long as curry's not involved. A lamb bhuna is game over for romance.

Rather than powdered rhino horn or illicit pills bought in Mong Kok, this aphrodisiac event centers round food and entertainment. Guests will sit down to a 3-course dinner complemented by a theatrical lingerie show. It all sounds very exciting. We’re hoping for Shakespeare meets Sex & Zen 3D.

EyeHandy is a website featuring videos of gorgeous girls offering handyman advice, from how to replace a kitchen faucet to how to treat a jellyfish sting.

Which is jolly good for Tara, otherwise she'd be performing in some rather unwholesome cinema.

Breakup Notifier is a newly launched Facebook add-on that tells you when 'friends' you'd rather be 'friendlier' with have changed their relationship status. It’s a brilliant idea that’s probably more fun than useful, but unsurprisingly this 21st century mating antennae has surged to the top of the iTunes downloads chart. It's simple, playful and useful but the really interesting question is; what would you do with this information?
