What can I do to feel more masculine?

What can I do to feel more masculine?

Masculine: I answer with more questions. Why do you not feel masculine? Is this a sexual problem or one of self esteem? Is it due to teasing or bullying? Identify your concerns and address it. If you don't feel strong enough- lift weights. Try sports. Most importantly try to accept who you are and set goals for what you would like to see yourself become. There is no "normal" for masculinity. ...Read more

Can you tell me how to make myself look more masculine?

Can you tell me how to make myself look more masculine?

FItness / hard work: There are ways of carrying yourself (pretend to feel confident), mannerisms to cultivate or drop (you may not be aware of yours). You can focus on what you can control -- leanness and muscular development. Height, hair, and bone structure are beyond your control & matter little. Learnig to dress is something you can learn from others. I know Lee Priest (photo) who's 5'3' & not complaining. ...Read more

I am a 23 yr old guy and I feel without any stamina and energy and feel like I have no masculine vigor. Tips?

Proper workup: At your age, if you're not getting several hard erections every day with minimal stimulation, you probably have a significant health problem.

Get a competent physician. ...Read more

Might it be possible that a a physically masculine woman wanting to lose weight benefit from men's diet products?

Might it be possible that a a physically masculine woman wanting to lose weight benefit from men's diet products?

Yes: The truth is that designating a weight-loss product as "for men" or "for women" is 99% advertising / marketing. The key to weight loss will always be calories-in and calories-out, the products work when combined with exercise and a low-calorie diet, a cheap vitamin-mineral tablet is probably more than enough, & lasting weight loss comes from lifestyle change. Glad you're doing this; good luck. ...Read more
