Are the male editors of Men’s Health all virgins?

Or are they channeling characters from 80’s flicks like Weird Science and Revenge of the Nerds?
You decide.

    “I love how you taste.”
    That’s an interesting choice.

    “Hungry? Stay right here. I’ll go make you a burrito.”
    WTF???

    I do not read Mens Health so I have no idea of their normal ‘style or substance’ … but yeah, most of those seem pretty lame.
    I am afraid to go read their “6 Phrases to Get Her into Bed Tonight list…

    I’m reasonably sure these sort of things are spontaneously generated from SPAM filters, then a collection routine slaps a category and writer’s name on it before publishing. The alternative, that a so called human writes this stuff, is too terrible to dwell on.

    “I love your [fill in body part here]” trips right off the tongue.

    “‘I love your [fill in body part here]’ trips right off the tongue.”
    I wonder how many of the dutiful drones who try to put this line to use repeat it verbatim, i.e., actually speaking the words “fill in body part here.”

    HAHAHAHAH! That should have been entitled, “The 30 Hottest Things to Say to a Naked Woman If You Want Her To Immediately Put On All Her Clothes And Leave”.

    “I love your [fill in body part here]”

    About those dutiful drones, you can see why the senior editor (19–he shaves!) changed “insert” to “fill in.”

    I like how they let the token guy over 30 in their staff throw in the bit about watching the baby. The rest of those were pretty profoundly lame.
    We can only hope for the sake of mankind none of them gets their mitts on that book ‘The Game’, about how to be a pick-up artist.

    Some sounded like Ted Bundy. Others, Rod McKuen. Either way, not good.

    I’ve never heard it called “the fill in body part” before.

    Thanks, that was hilarious. The burrito one, that was priceless, although muttering “suckers!” out the window at passers-by was also pretty good.
    Now that I think about it, my first high school boyfriend was smoother than that. His favorite thing to say to naked girls was, “It’s OK, I’ve got a whole drawer full of ’em–ribbed, glow in the dark, mint flavor…you pick the next time.”

    do you really think this was anything but a tongue-in-cheek filler, right up there with 10 things to do with an AMC Gremlin?
    [and, for that matter it’s not the case that women say parricularly clever things in a naked situation either… ]

    So, the editors must be virgins because they promote saying respectful things to women as opposed to the ol’ {grunt} “Get me a beer” {slaps ass} or any of the other “MANLY” variety things. Puh-lease.

    the ol’ {grunt} “Get me a beer” {slaps ass}
    I’m skeptical that anyone outside of low-budget porn flicks has ever actually used this one, but if so, I’m hopeful that readers of Men’s Health don’t have to be warned not to join in the primal chorus.
