Research reveals 'no time of the month' and cheap haircuts as best things about being a man

Best thing about being a man

Not having to deal with 'time of the month', not having to give birth and not having expensive haircuts have emerged as the best things about being a man, according to a new survey.

A poll commissioned by Skinny Brands, producers of 'skinny' alcoholic alternatives, studied 2,000 men and found that being able to get ready for work in ten minutes and watching football with the lads were also perceived as benefits of being a man.

Men also agreed that age is much kinder to them - grey hair “adds character” and being able to grow beard to cover up your double chin are all advantages of being a man.

On the other hand, the poll also found that going bald, getting a beer belly, the pain of getting kicked in the groin and man boobs were the worst things about being a man. 

I guess we can't have it all but we certainly have a lot of things going for us as men. Here's to enjoying all of these benefits and more!!
