Christina Hendricks’s LIST for MEN

Oh, Esquire and MEN suddenly love “curvy women.” Curvy is usually code for overweight and/or big boobs.

But that’s not what this is about. In Mad Men‘s Joan-style, Christina has compiled a list for men.

We love your body.
Amy: not always

Speaking of your body, you don’t understand the power of your own smell.
Amy: interesting. yes, sometimes. other times, men are gross. But Christina it’s also perhaps pheromones.

We remember forever what you say about the bodies of other women.

We also remember everything you say about our bodies, be it good or bad.

Never complain about our friends — even if we do.

Remember what we like.

We want you to order Scotch.
Amy: to me this screams “I’m an alcoholic.” And hard liquor does.

Stand up, open a door, offer a jacket.

No shorts that go below the knee.

Also, no tank tops.
Amy: absolutely not. tacky.

No man should be on Facebook.
Amy: I definitely wouldn’t want a man I was dating to be on Facebook. I would not friend him.

You don’t know this, but when we come back from a date, we feel awkward about that transition from our cute outfit into sexy lingerie.
Amy: most guys I’ve known just want your clothes OFF. period.

Panties is a wonderful word.
Amy: yes, please say to me “Are you wearing the panties your mother laid out for you?” and I’m all yours. ha.

About ogling: The men who look, they really look.

There are better words than beautiful. Radiant, for instance.

Marriage changes very little.
