Glamour magazine managed the rare feat of welcoming near-ubiquitous condemnation from the internet on Monday after publishing some brain-meltingly awful advice on how women can get men to fall in love with them.
As well as imploring women to answer the door naked and offer massages to their partners ("happy-endings optional") it also urged its readers to make their partners grilled cheese snacks after sex and hand them a beer when they get out of the shower (?!).
But Glamour is far from the first women's magazine to offer truly terrible pointers to its readers and, alas, we fear it won't be the last.
So, for posterity, here are some of the other spectacularly awful pieces of advice dished out over the years:
Hold his penis in one hand and lightly slap it with the other… you can tap it back and forth like you're volleying a tennis ball and lightly pinch the skin on his shaft and testicles. Many women make the mistake of being too gentle.
Find a stuffed chair or sofa and ride the arm, starting with a small movement of the hips and then slowly building momentum. No sofa? No problem. Use the edge of a table or desk - just make sure you fold a thick towel or blanket over it first.
Don’t hang out with anyone prettier/funnier/more charming than you. If you scoffed at that statement then riddle me this: If you went to a job interview with a subpar résumé written in crayon, would you bring along friends who have accolades and qualifications and typed up résumés that are printed on glossy paper and sexily three hole punched, resting on the coils of a leather-bound binder placed inside of a sleek, shiny briefcase? Would you do that? Don’t expect to leave with the job, Crayola, you stacked the deck against yourself.
