Dude Week: Win the Hot Jewish Moms Calendar!

By at 2:00 pm

Hello, fellas! To kick off Dude Week on a high note, we’re announcing a dude-inspired contest. To do so, we asked ourselves one question: What do Jewish dads love more than anything else? The answer was immediately apparent: Hot Jewish moms, of course. So, here’s your one and only chance to win the exclusive HOT JEWISH MOMS CALENDAR. This puppy features 12 months of drop-dead gorgeous Jewesses (and ¬†all the Jewish holidays are listed, so it’s practical!)

To enter to win, just drop us a note in the comments below by this Thursday, March 15th at 5 p.m., and we’ll announce a winner on Friday. One week only! One calendar! 12 hot Jewish moms! Go Dude Week!

instructions for dadsOK, let’s say it: isn’t a parenting site. It’s a mommying site.

We don’t write about our kids. We write about ourselves. I’m not saying this to be offensive, and I’m definitely not complaining: Look, babies sleep 18 hours a day.

Just mention the phrase “the miracle of birth” around a new parent and they’re likely to pelt you with any one of the above-mentioned substances. Read the rest of this entry →

Kveller is Devoting Itself To M-E-N

By at 4:32 pm

Over here at Kveller, we end up talking about stuff that turns off some dudes: leaky breasts, leaky vaginas, and Matthew Broderick, just to name a few.

awesome dude

All next week, Kveller is brought to you by guys like this.

But next week, it’s all about the men. We women folk are handing over the gauntlet to you men folk to tell us what you really think. That means, we’ll be hearing from real live dads on what it’s like to father (is that a verb just like “to mother”?)

If you’re a man, and you haven’t written something already for next week’s Dude Week, now is your chance. Send us an email at and let us know what contribution you’re dying to make.

See you next week in the new dimension.
