“Simple, effective and self explanatory” or When a handy just won't do
For a couple reasons, I am quite aware that tomorrow (March 14) is steak and blowjob day.
This holiest of days was created in 2002 by a radio jockey who explained it like this:
“‘Steak and Blowjob Day.’ Simple, effective and self explanatory, this holiday has been created so you ladies finally have a day to show your man how much you love him. No cards, no flowers, no special nights on the town; the name of the holiday explains it all, just a steak and a BJ. That's it. Finally, this twin pair of Valentine's Day and Steak and Blowjob Day will usher in a new age of love as men everywhere try THAT much harder in February to ensure a memorable March. It's like a perpetual love machine!”
I think it is an excellent idea. First, there needs to be an acknowledgement that chicks actually like V-day. It’s become so cool to hate on Valentine’s day that I think we all need admit we actually like it. Sure, I am a part of the female population who enjoys bitching about V-day, as I try to wear my “guys girl” like a goddamn badge. Of course, this is a lie. I like to get stuff and feel special. I like to make my significant other awkwardly sift through his memories and feelings to find non-sexual reasons he enjoys my company. The whole day just hurts so good.
Second, BJ and steak day admits something often forgotten. Straight women ignore the absolute beauty of being in a relationship with a straight man: It’s so damn easy. A man worth keeping is easy in every sense of the word. He is low maintenance, rarely over thinks anything and generally cares mostly about 1. getting off, 2. having good time 3. feeling successful/worthwhile in some capacity and 4. having a lady he can hang with in public. Yep, that’s about it. So while you are overanalyzing his “If that’s what you want” comment for the past four days, he’s happily thinking about bracketology or which series of beamer would make it most likely he could pick up on G-town freshmen. Think I'm underselling? Ask him.
So, as an equal opportunity kind of gal, since you got the flowers, card and favorite positions, so should he. Just not on Feb. 14th. But one month later, that makes some sense. Embrace those stereotypes and buy your man a steak and then work it off with a good hummer. And, mind the stepchildren, it’s their special day, too.
And, check out great steak recipes or BJ tips. Won't he be so happy (and maybe surprised) that you know his heart and soul so well to give him the two things he wants the most.
