AJOURE MEN / EDITOR

from the editor “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” – L.M. Montgomery Slowly but surely, the year is winding toward its end, but that doesn’t mean we’re taking it easy and waiting for Christmas. This month we attended the Berlin IFA 2016 trade fair and Gamescom, and inside we’ve included lots of new items and info on what most caught our attention at both events. As if that wasn’t enough – Apple’s yearly special event presented new products and updates. We’ve summarized the most important ones to give you a perfect overview of what the future in Apple technology holds. This issue has a lot more on technology than you are used to from us! In addition, we’ve included our usual advice and erotic articles to give you some trusted tips for new experiences to try out with your partner. Dennis Gansel graces our cover this month, making him the first film director to be on an Ajouré cover. He proves that Germans can be successful in Hollywood, too. Check out our interview to hear his perspectives on the filming of his latest movie The Mechanic: Resurrection. As you can see, a lot is changing this time of year. Stay tuned until the end of 2016. Let’s see what’s in store for us. Cheers, Tobias Bojko

Skin Care

5 STEPS to PERFECT SKIN

Tom Ford Purifying Face ◆ Cleanser € 47.99 Ebenholz Cleanse Gel € 25.00 Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil Free Cleanser € 16.99

#1 CLEANING Thorough cleaning of your skin is essential, even if you really don’t have time for extensive skin care. Even though the dirt on your skin might not be visible, it’s still there deep in your pores. Car exhaust, cigarette smoke, pollution, and lots of other things are absorbed into your skin every day, which is why it’s important to thoroughly cleanse your face every morning and evening – preferably with a cleanser specific to your skin type.

Ritual Scrub € 10.50 Ahava Exfoliating Cleansing Gel € 14.99 Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Italian Resort Face Exfoliant € 47.99

AJOURE MEN MAGAZINE PAGE:

OCTOBER

2016

#2 EXFOLIATION If you want to do something really noticeable for your skin, you should also exfoliate now and again. This will remove dead skin cells and reveal a smooth skin layer underneath them. In addition, an exfoliating scrub makes hair follicles softer and shaving easier. For daily exfoliation, look for a product containing small, fine granules so as not to irritate your skin.


AJOURE MEN / MEN’S CARE

Clinique Anti-Age Moisturizer € 42.99 L’Oréal All-in-1 Moisturizer € 4.99

#3 MOISTURIZING

Kiehl’s Oil Eliminator ◆ 24-Hour Anti-Shine Moisturizer For Men € 26.99

Your daily shave removes your skin’s natural oils in addition to hair follicles, and an alcohol-based aftershave will dry out your skin even more. Apply a moisturizer so that your skin regains lost moisture and is less susceptible to razor burn.

Biotherm Homme Total Recharge Eye € 24.99 Kiehl’s ◆ Age Defender Eye Repair € 40.99

#4 EYE CARE

Lancôme Renergy 3D Yeux € 54.95

Aging is first noticeable around the eyes, in that fine skin area that doesn’t have sweat or oil glands. This skin is more prone to drying, which shows up in wrinkles that appear sooner than we would like. Make a point of applying a hydrating eye cream around the eye every morning and evening after cleansing to keep this skin hydrated and protected.

Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm € 3.99

Photos: iZonda / iStock Photo; Douglas

Anthony Advanced Formula Lip Balm ◆ SPF25 € 14.99

#5 LIP BALM

Biotherm Homme Ultimate Lip Balm € 7.99

Here signs of age also appear earlier than we’d like. As we age, our lips lose collagen and the appearance of fullness. Our lips also don’t have sweat or oil glands and have less melanin, meaning they absorb more UV rays. Use a lip balm regularly to hydrate and protect your lips.

Apple Watch

The new Apple Watch aims once again to impress customers through superior design and technology, starting with appearance. Among other available materials, a new ceramic band is now part of the line-up. While more expensive than the stainless steel version, it is also sturdier and highly stylish. Another special edition of Apple Watch includes a leather armband from Hermès. This is where the ingenious technology of Apple and the style of a fashion house the size of Hermès join forces – and conquer. The last special version is the Nike+ Apple Watch, with its sportier look. Even though Apple Watch in all versions is increasingly focused on exercise, this smartwatch is even better suited to a fitness lifestyle. The technical aspects of Apple Watch have also been greatly improved. The new Apple Watch is waterproof to a depth of 50 meters and can withstand the toll of a daily swim. It has a new dual core processor that increases its speed by 50 percent. The graphics processor has twice as much power as its predecessor, which provides twice-as-good resolution at 60 frames per second.

The screen is now twice as bright as the former Apple Watch, which makes it Apple’s brightest product. This is incredibly helpful for use in daylight and while exercising. Another technical innovation is the now built-in GPS, which allows the use of navigation apps. The operating system has also changed and with it comes many useful new features. The new watchOS 3 now lets you write on the clock face with your finger to answer messages quickly. It’s also possible to change the layout of the watch with a single swipe right or left. Like the new iOS 10, the latest Apple Watch system has new stickers and screen animations to make communication more fun and playful. Along with all these new features, what new apps does the Apple Watch have? Awesome ones! Apple has developed a safety app that will automatically initiate an emergency call if you press and hold the small button on the side – no matter what country you’re in. It will also write a message to an emergency contact. Lots of fitness, newspapers, and gaming apps are also now compatible with the watch, including Pokémon Go. With Apple Watch, you can see Pokémon in your area, though you cannot capture them or fight in arenas.

Apple Watch can be pre-ordered starting September 9, and will be shipped on September 16.. The price starts at $269, with the ceramic casing and Hermès armband costing more.

 Keynote

According to Apple, the newly-released iOS is its biggest system update ever. Apparently, its appearance has not changed much. But Apple has included several new features that expand its system capacities. With the new iOS 10 system, the screen automatically lights up when you pick up your iPhone. Siri’s intelligence has been expanded, and voice input will now be possible without apps. This pattern of removing apps is often repeated in the new iOS as Apple attempts to make operation as simple and efficient as possible. With the new operating system, Apple maps looks much better. iMessage has also been given a similar facelift. Smaller features make communication via iMessage a completely new experience, with new ways to mark or send messages. There are also new stickers and animations that take up the entire screen. Writing will now be increasingly replaced by colorful animations. The last major change in iOS 10 is the Apple Home Kit. This is Apple’s intelligent home control system via smartphone. In cooperation with numerous other companies, Apple’s Home Kit has created its own system that allows you to control heaters, windows, air conditioners, lamps and more from the comfort of your smartphone. Of course, you have to have compatible smart devices at home. The iOS 10 was released on September 13, 2016.

 Keynote Differences Between IPhone 7 and IPhone 7 Plus The 7 Plus has two cameras with 12 megapixels, a normal wide-angle camera and a telephoto lens. Engineers at Apple have managed to make 10x zoom possible through these two cameras without losing image quality. The iPhone 7 Plus has a new portrait mode that blurs backgrounds. The Retina display has also been altered. It is now 25 percent lighter, has HD resolution, and records color more intensely. Given that Retina display is already the best display available for smartphones, we found these changes completely satisfactory. Now to the most controversial change in the iPhone 7: the headphone jack. For the first time, the traditional headphone jack was completely removed by Apple, leaving only the Lightning port. This problem can of course be solved with the new headphones released simultaneously by Apple. There is also an adapter available to convert the Lightning port to a traditional headphone jack. Another elegant solution is the Apple Airpods. These wireless headphones with the revolutionary W1 chip transmit sound in high quality despite being wireless. The headphones have a sensor which ensures that music will be played only if you are wearing the Airpods and come with a charging and storage station that provides 24 hours of battery life and 5 hours of listening time on a full charge. If you open the case, a window will appear on your Apple device to allow you to connect from a computer, tablet, or smartphone. If you change devices and music, Apple promises seamless and continuous music streaming. Tapping twice on the headset will activate Siri.

What’s New For the first time, the iPhone 7 contains an A10 Fusion Core, which makes the system up to 40 percent faster than its predecessor. Looking at the speed of all the first iPhones, this is a total 120 times faster. Two high-efficiency cores were also installed to carry out more menial operations and save power, and a performance controller determines when to activate different cores. When it comes to graphics, games now look like they are being played on a computer. Edges and inconsistencies in smartphone games have been eliminated and even particle systems are nicely implemented with the new graphics capacities. The battery lasts two hours longer than the iPhone 6S. If the new iPhone 7 battery didn’t lose strength over time, Apple would have mentioned it. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case. All in all, the iPhone 7 is an amazing new product – especially the iPhone 7 Plus in jet black. The Keynote speech gave us goosebumps – after all, Apple also sells us a feeling. The new iPhone was available for purchase starting on September 9 with shipment starting on September 16. The iPhone starts at $649 for 32 GB and the iPhone 7 Plus at $749. If 32GB isn’t enough, you can also get 128 or 256 GB.

Super Mario

Run

The game will be playable with only one hand, making it perfect for the train or while on your lunch hour. Mario runs automatically, and players give him commands to jump or roll. As Mario races through his familiar Mario universe on our iPhones, happy childhood memories flood back to us. With this game, Nintendo sets the stage for another hit like Pokémon Go. But what does the game offer? What will convince and keep players addicted long after they first install the Mario game? Here Nintendo gets clever. For example, you can choose between a single-player mode and an online multiplayer mode. In both cases, the point is to collect as many coins as possible in the Mario world. Toad is also included in the smartphone Mario universe. You have to try to convince him to join your team for the next round. But what team?

After the resounding success of Pokémon Go, the next Nintendo super hit will soon be available for your smartphone. Super Mario Run, like Pokémon Go, implies action just from the name, but this one won’t require you to leave home. Its release was announced at Apple’s special media event on September 7.


AJOURE MEN / TECHNOLOGY

Each player has a Mushroom Kingdom that needs residents, which are Toads that you have to skillfully lure into your kingdom. Also typical Mario: the game is easy to play and great for beginners. We’ll probably only know whether a hard-tomaster aspect has been added when the game is released. An exact release date hasn’t been confirmed, though the latest rumor is that it will be in 2017. For that latest updates and information, you can sign up for a newsletter at the App Store. The price is also still unknown, though it should be a one-time cost. Along with the game and the new iOS 10, lots of new Mario stickers will be added to iMessage. We’re wondering: will we get Mario Run fever, now that the Pokémon Go craze is slowing down? Either way, we’re very excited about Super Mario Run. Android users can relax: Super Mario will be available for their smartphones, too, though somewhat later than for iPhone users.

Consoles ******************************* Choosing Christmas gifts is a science in itself. You can spend a lot of time deciding on the perfect gift and sometimes still get it wrong. A great gift for every man with a competitive vein is the game console. The Playstation by Sony, Xbox from Microsoft, and the Wii from Nintendo are the most wellknown consoles out there. It’s no coincidence that these manufacturers plan to release their latest versions right around Christmastime. *******************************

*The PS4 NEO The Playstation 4 Neo is the latest version of the PS4, set to be released in October 2016. There is still no mention of a PlayStation 5. The biggest change is inside the console: the processor remains the same, while the CPU core is slightly improved. The biggest difference is in the graphics performance. When it comes to graphics, the Playstation 4 Neo is about twice as fast as its predecessor and should allow much-improved graphics. These changes hope, among other things, to bring players back to the console and away from the computer. Rumor has it that the PS4 Neo supports 4K resolution in games, although for € 400, AJOURE MEN MAGAZINE PAGE:

it’s unlikely. However, the Playstation may support 4K resolution when you watch or stream movies. All PS4 games will be compatible with the new Neo, and future games will receive a “Neo-mode” to utilize the improved graphics performance. The PS4 Neo is a worthy descendant of the PS4 that hopes to win us over with superior performance.

There is still a lot of speculation surrounding the console, but it is rumored to be a mobile console like the Wii U controller with its own display and the ability to connect to TVs and monitors. Unlike the new Xbox and PS4, Nintendo does not rely on raw performance. Japanese developers have already made clear with the Wii U that they are more concerned with a well-rounded package than just graphic intensity. Fun while gaming has always been a priority at Nintendo. There are rumors about a virtual reality linked to the new Nintendo console, but to date Nintendo has not confirmed

this. What is certain is that Ubisoft will support the console with its games – games like “Just Dance 4” and “Rayman Legends” from the game developer have already helped the Wii U achieve success. Despite its many similarities, the Nintendo console is not to be compared with the Wii U. According to Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima, there is no connection between the two consoles. The Nintendo NX will be something new. The abundance of unconfirmed rumors make it hard to know what to expect – we’ll be waiting impatiently for its release next year.

*Xbox Scorpio

The new Xbox Scorpio is the most powerful console of the new releases. Here Microsoft focuses completely on performance, like competitor Sony, in an attempt to bring computer players back to the console. With all 6 TeraFLOPS, the Xbox games will be possible in 4k resolution, though this has yet to be confirmed one hundred percent. Its incredible performance will probably make it one of the most expensive consoles to come on the market. Microsoft has mentioned the possibility of a recall action, which would allow old Xbox One owners to trade and pay less for the new Scorpio. The

new Xbox is forward and backward compatible, which means it isn’t necessary to own an Xbox One. The only question is whether users will be willing to pay more. It has been claimed that the Scorpio will allow old Xbox games to playback in 4K in Scorpio, or will at least improve the graphics and FPS. Another important feature is that the new console is keyboard and mouse compatible, another attempt to capture computer players. The Scorpio will be released at the end of 2017. Those performance-focused among you can plan ahead for next Christmas.

The Pokémon Go hype is slowly subsiding. But though the whole world is no longer constantly on the hunt, there are still plenty of players roaming the streets looking for virtual monsters to throw Pokéballs at. Here we’ll look at some marketing ideas used by companies to cash in on the game’s popularity. Of course, Pokémon Go players can be easily attracted by the promise of catching Pokémon, meaning that businesses with neighboring Pokéstops have a huge advantage. Businesses can also buy the Lure Module with real money online to attract customers. They generally do this by organizing an event that supplies players with increased numbers of Pokémon for several hours at a time. A pizzeria in New York used this strategy and increased their sales by 75 percent. Pokémon Go uses a lot of battery power. Companies that produce external battery packs have knowingly used this to their advantage.

If there is no Pokéstop nearby, it still pays to lure players with discounts. For example, the Burger Buben restaurant in Munich gave discounts depending on which team players belong to. A car parts dealer in Vienna gave customers a 20 percent discount on wipers and engine oil if they could catch a Pokémon on the premises.

And even if you don’t want to give discounts, there are still a few tricks to attract players. Gas station chain Esso posted photos of special Pokémon or nearby Pokéstops around their stations, even though they did not offer players the Lure Module.

And of course, we can’t forget the rising popularity of Pokémon products boosted by the return of the game’s popularity. The Pokémon TV-series has seen increased online streaming since the release of the game, while Pokémon paraphernalia (from clothing to accessories) have become increasingly popular.

Businesses also have the opportunity to heavily invest in a Pokémon Go marketing strategy. Take McDonald’s in Japan: for an undisclosed sum, the business ensured that each fastfood restaurant had a Pokéstop or arena nearby. With a little creativity, businesses can use Pokémon Go to attract more customers, even now that the game has lost its initial surge of popularity.

GAMESCOM TOP 5 Titanfall 2

Battlefield 1

Battlefield 1 – an attempted comeback after a flop? The game, which takes place in WWI, surprised us with its stunning graphics and the possible interactions with the game world. In the new Battlefield, almost everything can be destroyed. This setting contains exciting new weapons, classes, and vehicles. You can ride in Behemoth, a train with six turrets, or choose from small tanks, planes, cars, and even horses to take into battle. The cards are modeled after places in the real world, like the Sinai Desert and the St. Quentin Scar. The game was extremely well received at Gamescom, unlike long-time competitor Call of Duty. We are sure that Battlefield 1 will prove to be the comeback after the failure of Battlefield 4.

Virtual Reality / Oculus Rift

At Gamescom it was clear that virtual reality is once again the future of gaming. Virtual reality glasses and games were seen at the Desert Rift, Playstation, and Samsung stands. Games like Batman Arkham VR, The Climb, and Minecraft can all be played in virtual realities with completely new game experiences. The future of virtual reality is clear in a game like The Climb, which dominates with sheer visual power and entails climbing mountains using two hand-held controllers and stunning views.

Titanfall 2 was an absolute insider tip at Gamescom. The original concept of its predecessor, which appeared in 2014, was initially very well received by the gaming community. But as time went by, technical problems and errors within the game made it less and less popular to play. For Titanfall 2, EA used player criticism to develop a game that retains the good concept of the first version and changes the bad. New skills for the Titan pilots were added and the Titans gained artificial intelligence, both of which should significantly alter the gaming experience. We are very pleased that EA didn’t give up the concept and from reactions at Gamescom, we are confident about the success of second version of Titanfall 2.


AJOURE MEN / TECHNOLOGY Although the controls used for today’s virtual realities still have to be perfected, their implementation and possibilities are improving. We look forward to the next major developments in the world of virtual reality.

For Honor

The long-awaited game by Ubisoft finally appears to be within reach. In epic online battles, you fight against real or programmed opponents as a Viking, Samurai, or knight. The game uses extensive maps and a group of players to beat opponents. You can do this, for example, by occupying points on the map, among many other modes of play. Both a gameplay video and trailer show how much was invested in this game and that the concept appears to be relatively new. No one knows yet whether Ubisoft has hit the mark with For Honor, but we think so. For Honor promises to be a lot of fun.

The Legend of Zelda – Breath of the Wild

The new Zelda game, now appearing for the Wii U and the new Nintendo NX console, is a huge success. Breath of the Wild has a lot of new stuff, but you can still find typical Zelda elements, which is probably a great sign for a successful series. The world looks huge and you have the option to ignore the storyline and transform Zelda into an Open World Game. The storyline suggests that Hyrule has to be rescued from an evil power again. The graphics are comic-like style, which interact with the environment and the wide view in the distance, providing a visual feast to behold. The game itself feels incredible to play. We are very excited about the possibilities of this game in combination with the new Nintendo NX.

What is the most fun you’ve ever had in a role? The most fun in a role is happening right now, with “Tobias Church” on Arrow. This is the first time I get to play someone who’s twisted, with a sick sense of humor. I don’t think a lot of people have seen that, except with “Z” on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Arrow gives me an opportunity to play a dark character, but with a sense of humor. Tobias Church is a very meaty, juicy role, because you don’t know which way he’s going, but you can pretty much bet it’s going to be something twisted. Between acting in a series or in a film, do you have a preference?
 No, I don’t have a preference. Each one requires different parts of your discipline. I enjoy them both. If you weren’t an actor, what profession would you choose? I would be a broadcaster. I always loved television and radio, in terms of being a newscaster, an on-air sportscaster, or on an interview show. How do you spend your free time?

 I take the opportunity to travel to different places. I’m always curious about and love history, travel, and nature. I love to get out and hike, run, and be on the water. I work out, and read, and I am also currently developing an independent film. I love being with my children. I’m always going to plays and jazz shows, as well. Where will we see you next?
 You’ll see me next in Season 5 of CW’s Arrow and Season 2 of SyFy’s The Expanse! I also have my own apparel company called A God Amongst, and I am developing merchandise that celebrates the company right now.

Ajouré: How was it working together? DG: Just great. He’s been doing action films for so long that he’s hungry for new directors and input. In addition, he has so much experience that it’s just fun to talk and exchange stories with him. He does a lot of his stunts himself. For a filmmaker that’s a big plus, because you don’t have to hide a stuntman through scene cuts when the main actor performs lots of difficult scenes himself. He’s also a European like me, which is another level we share. Ajouré: The film is pure full-on action. What was shooting like and what were the biggest challenges?

Ajouré: What are the biggest differences between American and German filmmaking? DG: The size of the teams and the budget. But also the power the stars have in the American system – it’s even bigger than the producers, because a lot of times the cast of a production gives the final green light. Ajouré: What genre of film would you still like to direct? DG: A love story.

jouré: What do you think the German film industry is lacking?

Game. I’ve been interested in WWII my whole life and ever since Before the Fall, I had a great affinity for these issues. I thought the script was awesome, the cast was amazing, but emotionally, it just wasn’t quite right. It’s hard to say what I would have done differently, but I would have tried very hard to bring the intense feeling that I had when reading the script to the big screen. But that’s always easy to say. Every script, every project has its own challenges.

DG: Our difficulty in dealing with genres outside of comedy and all its varieties. That’s a shame if you think of our rich film history. Horror, science fiction, crime film, even an early form of the James Bond films were all heavily influenced or even invented by Nosferatu, Metropolis, M – A city looks for a murderer, and Spies. Where can this variety of topics can be found in German cinema today? Scandinavian cinema has been Ajouré: Who would you still like to work showing us for years how well it can be done.

Ajouré: Are there already new projects waiting in the wings? DG: Yes. This fall I’ll be filming Jim Knopf in Babelsberg, Bavaria and in South Africa. This has been a dream project ever since I heard the radio play as a 7-year-old. For me it is the great fantasy adventure in German children’s literature. We are currently building Lummerland and the Dragon City. I can’t imagine a project more awesome than this one!

When I was 10, Ajouré: Do you have role models or colleagues that you I just loved movies, especially The Godfather, and something absolutely want to work with? inside me said: “This is what you want to do: become an actor and make movies!” This inner voice was just like that time on PM: I’m only 22 years old, so I hope that I get to work the gala stage. From then on, it was completely clear where with lots of great actors in the future [laughs]. I admire the journey should take me. To this day, nothing has changed. what actors and filmmakers like Matthias Schweighofer and Til Schweiger are able to pull off. They have their finger on the pulse and know exactly what people want to see. As for role Ajouré: If you hadn’t become an actor, what would models, there are a few people. Marlon Brando, for his acting have been your Plan B? Do you have any other talents or as Godfather Don Vito Corleone. Sadly, he isn’t alive anymopassions that you would have made into a career? re. Jean-Paul Belmondo, for his character acting and doing his own stunts. And of course, Leonardo DiCaprio for his PM: In the film industry, unfortunately, you are never unfathomable, multifaceted way of working. His movies are guaranteed a permanently successful career. You have to be so incredibly complex and fascinating. Overall, great actors realistic and keep all options open. In high school, having that leave a first-class stamp on all their films through their good grades is key to your future. When I was in high school, energy and presence. good scores on my exit exams was a big priority. My career didn’t occur to me just because I like to sit in front of a camera.

The genre, with all its values and ideals, simply fascinates me. The most exciting is the role of Michael Corleone, by Al Pacino.

Serious acting schools are also good, ones that not only train you, but hopefully also give you connections in the industry. Then I would recommend participating in short student films from film schools in order to gain experience and make new contacts.

Ajouré: Monday morning, 9 am. What’s your perfect start to the week?

Ajouré: Where will we see you next?

PM: A gentleman never tells [laughs]. Jokes aside, I really don’t know, because I don’t like to make my work the focus when I meet women. I would much rather meet them outside the professional sphere. Job and personal life have to be clearly separated. This can’t always be avoided, but now I have a good sense of how to do it. Ajouré: What’s the best pick-up line? PM: No idea, you tell me! [Laughs]. Pick-up lines hardly ever work. Their success rate is pretty low. There are no manuals for those types of situations. If I like a woman, I normally get a spontaneous idea of how to strike up a conversation with her in a charming way. No matter what, it always takes a little courage to take the first step. And if it goes badly and you get turned down – well, at least you know where you stand [laughs]. Ajouré: Who has influenced you? PM: Every moment and every encounter in life is an experience that influences thoughts and actions and a continuous learning process that determines what’s to come. There are people who have had a positive influence on me, who’ve inspired and motivated me. From a professional standpoint, as co-stars, Uwe Friedrichsen or Uli Tukur, and Michael Degen, who I had the opportunity to work with.

Not Enough Sex – And What It Means for Your Relationship From stress at work or just the daily grind, we arrive home every evening with the same pile of worries. In the end, it’s our partners who suffer, because sex drive nosedives mainly as a result of daily exhaustion. Suddenly, or not so suddenly, sex at home is no longer enticing, and becomes as routine as everything else. The question is: is good sex the secret to maintaining a healthy relationship? To bring you some answers, we asked around in the swinger world. These couples are open and relaxed when it comes to sex, and compared to us “non-swingers,” seem slightly more evolved.

The results:

AJOURE MEN MAGAZINE PAGE:

84 |

OCTOBER

2016

38%

of swinger couples have sex once a week or less

50%

have sex a few times a week

9%

have sex every day

3%

have sex multiple times a day

Of all interviewed couples, 65% of swinger women and 56% of all swinger men were generally satisfied with their sex lives. However, when asked if they would like more sex than they currently have, 53% of women and 65% of men said they would like sex more often. With such a large percentage of swinger couples wanting more sex, and being people who deal very openly and tolerantly with their sex lives, we can assume that the percentages for non-swinger couples would be even more extreme. A lack of enthusiasm about sex is never without reason – that is, many couples simply get into a routine that no longer produces as many endorphins during sex as in the beginning of a relationship. That doesn’t mean you should end the relationship or cheat on your partner. You should both work together to bring the spark back into your sex life and get those endorphins pumping again.

First of all, it’s important to remember: there is no good, right, or normal amount of sex a couple should have in a happy relationship. As long as it works for both of you, everything is fine. When one partner becomes dissatisfied with the amount of sex, then something should be changed to save the relationship. Of course, in a new relationship, you can hardly keep your hands off one another, and you’ll probably have sex every day. The longer a relationship lasts, the longer the pauses between each time you have sex. We looked at one of the largest swinger sites for information about these couples feel.

How to Get the Heat Back into Your Sex Life

k Have sex in unusual places k Visit a swinger club together k Go to a porn theater together k Try new sex positions k Go shopping for sex toys Words of Advice “An understanding of a mutual, open attitude about sex evolves into fantasies, among them swinging. My deepest wish is to be allowed to watch my wife surrender to another man.” This confession comes from the book Disinhibited Germans by Gerhardt Haase-Hindenberg, who shows though his book how couples and single people can implement their fantasies with the aim of improving their sex lives. We don’t think this book is the ultimate authority on how sex lives should look, but it does encourage new fantasies and ways to have more, better, and more fulfilling sex with your partner.

THE DOS AND DON’TS OF A ONE-NIGHT STAND

AJOURE MEN MAGAZINE PAGE:

OCTOBER

2016

Those who love non-binding, permissively sexual adventures still have to be careful to ensure that both parties enjoy themselves. There are a number of typical taboos that quickly complicate generally uncomplicated onenight stands. If you perceive one arising, there are certain precautions you need to take. Ultimately, it all comes down to treating your partner with respect, even if it’s only for one night.

Avoid the “L” Word Declarations of love of every kind are completely inappropriate for a first meeting that ends in bed. That’s because they signal that, at least for one of the parties, emotions are at play. And the point of the whole thing is a noncommittal sexual adventure. The goal is to enjoy sex but to avoid triggering big emotions that could unnecessarily hurt the other person.

No Hand-Cuffing In a one-night love affair, it’s not so easy to know or adapt to the desires and needs of your partner. It’s very important never to force your lover to do anything she doesn’t feel up to. This means that sexual games of any kind should be off limits for your single sexual tryst unless both have expressed consent in advance. Of course, a one-night stand means meeting halfway – this means avoiding egotism or imposing your sexual interests on someone unwillingly. Here tact and sensitivity from both sides are crucial.

Head Home After Even though the sex was amazing, you should still think hard before falling asleep next to your lover and spending the night together. If you suspect that what just happened can’t be beat, then pick yourself up, get dressed, and head out.


AJOURE MEN / EROTIC

Once Means Once

Two Children, or Three?

He’s Just Shy!

The most important part of the one-night stand is its extraordinary, one-time nature. Unless you’ve just met your dream girl – and when it comes to one-night stands, this isn’t terribly likely – it’s best to just leave it at that. This will help you avoid embarrassing conversations and no one will be disappointed. Although going separate ways doesn’t always seem right, after a night of hot togetherness, it’s almost always the best decision. It’s important to leave the scene afterward and not return.

It goes without saying that future planning of any kind is taboo during a single sexual adventure. It’s possible that you wake up the morning after to find passion and emotions at play, but you should not initiate discussions about the future after a onenight stand. If it’s true for you, you should also directly communicate your belief that a one-night stand cannot develop into a loving relationship or even a prolonged sex affair.

Trouble getting an erection is extremely uncomfortable, especially during a onenight stand. If this has happened to you before, bring some assistance along. If it happens anyway, and nothing seems to work, you still have the opportunity to be intimate in other ways. A great trick for overcoming this embarrassing experience is humor. By saying something funny, you can break the tension and concentrate on making her night wonderful – that might get you going again.

In order to have a truly satisfactory onenight stand, you should avoid alcohol, drugs, or other stimulants. A drink or two beforehand is fine and normal, but it shouldn’t deteriorate into binge drinking. Otherwise, you might experience the famous blackout and not even be able to remember the name of your lover the next morning.

Our Names Sound Good Together If you say something like this, or something else related to joint planning for the future after a one-night stand, you are losing it. It’s a problem in itself that you don’t realize how problematic a comment like this can be. You look like a child who declares his love the first time someone holds his hand. Behave a little more mysteriously, and don’t forget: it’s a one-night stand.

If She Doesn’t Smell Good, Forget It! Personal hygiene is very important during a single sexual encounter. Unclean bodies kill the passion pretty quickly. For you, that means pack up and head out. There are no excuses! Get your desire under control and imagine just briefly, what kind of person goes on a date without a shower. Disgusting right? Move on.

AJOURE MEN / ADVICE

THE MODERN

ALPHA MALE In the animal kingdom, becoming an alpha male involves taking from the weaker animals, subjugating opponents, and focusing on one’s own well-being. One of the biggest mistakes humans make is the attempt to replicate this same behavior in the human world. Yes, we all know people who come to power and money through ruthlessness and taking what rightfully belongs to others, but those days are quickly approaching their end. Tolerance is increasingly importance in our modern society, which brings us to a new version of the head wolf: the modern alpha male.

2016

THE FORMER ALPHA MALE The most important feature of the now-outdated alpha animal was his level of aggressiveness. Although effective in getting what he wanted, this behavior didn’t ensure a good reputation, which is of utmost importance today. The alpha male didn’t let anyone disrespect him. His best weapon was violent authority through forced respect. An alpha animal was never fearful and could outdo opponents through his superior courage. If something went wrong, it was easy to find a scapegoat. Another characteristic of the former alpha animal was his tendency to dominate others. He raised himself up by making others small. These behaviors had many disadvantages, least of all that they made him many enemies.

THE ALPHA MALE TODAY The alpha male of today is defined by the opposite characteristics. His main feature is assertiveness, or self-confidence, but without aggression. Confident alpha males say what they think, avoid euphemisms, stay on topic, and don’t make excuses or manipulate others. They do this without having to offend, threaten, or use force against others. Confidence is the foundation for today’s alpha male because his other characteristics built on it. Though some say that dating requires a more aggressive approach, this a common mistake. Though it seems like the nice guy always gets the girl stolen by an asshole, it’s not because the other guy is an ass. It’s because he approaches the girl and she responds – the nice guy loses the girl because he’s passive.

Like the rare silverback gorilla or the chief wolf in a pack, when it comes to humans, a dominant man is also called an alpha male. The alpha male is the pack leader, reinforced by the fact that the other pack members recognize and respect his authority.


AJOURE MEN / ADVICE

Mutual respect is one of the characteristics that most contrasts with previous alpha male behavior. This entails treating your enemy respectfully, no matter who your opponent is. It helps you build a good reputation, which if you’re an alpha male, helps to keep your position. In addition, your journey to becoming an alpha male is not hate-filled, but supported by people who count on and endorse you. The third characteristic of the new alpha male is an ability to assess and understand risks. Successful people are not afraid to take risks, and it pays off, whether that means investing a large amount in the company or talking to someone at the club. It’s important to learn how to deal with and size-up risks – this ability will be essential for your future.

The last characteristic is to reinforce and reaffirm others. An alpha male today is able to recognize talent and character and can develop strong interpersonal bonds. First of all, because it’s worthwhile to seek the advice of people with more expertise. Secondly, because it ensures friendships. Where an earlier alpha male boasted many enemies, today’s alpha male has a large number of friends and supporters who help him along his way through their help, support, and knowledge.

more quickly through the assistance of his friends, and helps him maintain his position over a long period. Whereas defeated enemies and envious colleagues used to attempt to overthrow a leader, today his colleagues have a vested interest in helping him keep his position.

Both the old and new alpha males are leaders who know and get what they want – the big difference is that today’s alpha male respects and supports others. This ensures that he gets to the top

HOW TO FIND NEW FRIENDSHIPS


AJOURE MEN / ADVICE

#1 Listen Carefully and Show Interest You’ve probably come across someone who constantly interrupts others and doesn’t pay close attention. A week later, they’ve forgotten most of what you discussed. How genuine is this individual? It’s easy to see when people you are talking to are focused and listening with genuine interest. They won’t interrupt your flow of conversation and will ask questions about what you’ve just said. Responding and remembering important details are key.

j

#4 Avoid Neediness, Attention Seeking and Showing Off Being open to making new friends when you first arrive in a new environment is an important skill. Try not to seem too desperate for friendship, as this can be a turnoff. Someone who needs to be the center of attention at all times will discover that this doesn’t make you popular with strangers. Take your time getting to know people.

#7 Stay Still Some people have restless body language. If you’re not at the gym, try to stay relaxed, sit quietly, and don’t fidget or keep moving constantly. Some people find it nerve-wracking to be around a person who is constantly bouncing off the walls. #8 Stay Open and Friendly to New Acquaintances

#5 Everybody likes Humor

The Power of Positive Thinking

How? Easy. First, familiarize yourself with the idea that you carry around your subconscious, which enables you to perform certain things automatically. Talking, running, eating, driving, etc. Here is also the real you, who you are, who you have become in life. Who you are is influenced by parents, siblings, peers, and other people from your different circles. These people have probably contributed to you in both good ways and bad. Children who hear from their parents that they aren’t enough eventually internalize this idea in their subconscious. The subconscious doesn’t give answers, it only performs automatically.

Researchers have found that the nerve that lies behind the stomach, the solar plexus, is our body’s energy source. Everyone who has ever received a blow to this part of the body knows how much energy this drains. This nerve is connected to the back of the brain where it is believed that our subconscious lies. First of all, it’s important to become aware of yourself. Commit yourself to the idea that you can decide who you want to be. Everyone is allowed to make mistakes and everyone does. But each of us have special qualities and the past is the past! Now is the time to plant new ideas and allow them to grow. The first step is mind control. Take time every day to reflect and let your thoughts flow. Figure out what you’re thinking and what is keeping your mind busy. Once you have located the cause of your negative thoughts, try to replace it with a positive thought. In the beginning, this won’t be easy, especially when it comes to recognizing your negative thoughts, but over time it will become habit.

Photos: Jon Feingersh; Westend61 / Getty Images

It isn’t always easy to think positively. Especially in difficult moments and phases of life, it’s sometimes hard to see the good in things. A negative attitude doesn’t increase your popularity among peers, and this in turn contributes to feelings of self-doubt and an eternal cycle of negativity. However, most people don’t know how much we control our own thoughts and are able to achieve a more positive attitude. The side effect is improved relationships with peers and those near us.


AJOURE MEN / ADVICE

Thoughts Are Like Magnets Have you ever had the impression that you understand, feel, and share the same feelings that others are describing, be it shame, anger, or joy? This is not an illusion – every thought is energy. Thoughts attract other thoughts like magnets. Imagine that you go out into the world full of anger, shame, or apathy – you’ll find you won’t attract people who are happy, confident, and optimistic. Just the opposite. You’ll notice them, but both will experience a feeling of aversion and rejection.

Of course, you’ve had days when everything was just perfect. You left home and radiated good energy to everyone you encountered without a second thought. The reaction was amazing, right? More people greeted you and smiled back. This is because of your energy. When you radiate positive energy, you automatically attract positive people. The opposite is also true. If you want to change something about yourself, then focus on controlling your thoughts, clearing your subconscious, and understanding who you want to be in life.

You are beautiful ◊ You are smart ◊ You are hardworking You are healthy ◊ You are funny ◊ You can do anything

Don’t give up if this approach doesn’t work right away. Think about how many times a toddler falls before he learns to walk. It takes time for your subconscious to accept and integrate a positive thought. Repetition is crucial.

We wish you lots of self-reflection and a beautiful journey.

The Porsche Panamera, the first four-door luxury sedan by ENGINES German sports car manufacturer, has been around since 2009. Internally developed under the abbreviation Porsche The new generation of the Panamera will be available in 970, the Panamera is designed to compete with luxury three variants: vehicles from other German manufacturers like the Audi A8 and the BMW 7-series and, of course, the Mercedes S-Class. The Panamera 4S, powered by a V6 engine with 2.9 liter In contrast to these models, however, is the Panamera’s displacement, achieves an output of 440 hp and a torque sportiness and engine power. The first generation of the of 550 Nm. Panamera was criticized for its hunchback look, a result of the inelegant sloping rear line.

This makes it the clearly differs from its predecessor in terms of appearance. most powerful diesel engine in a production Porsche to Here we take a closer look at the new Panamera. date. An impressive feature of the diesel engine is its maximum torque of 850 Nm, which surpasses even the torque DESIGN of the Panamera Turbo.

A plug-in hybrid version is also planned for the future with environmental awareness in mind. In addition, Porsche will probably also eventually offer the Panamera in a less powerful basic version. The luxury Panamera version, which uses two turbochargers, completed the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife with a lap time of 7:38 minutes. It’s not only the fastest luxury sedan in the world, but at the same time, approaches the speed of a Porsche 911 GT3 from the 997 generation. TECHNICAL SPECS Technically, the Porsche Panamera second generation is based on the modular standard drive train system (MSB) from the Volkswagen Group. The Audi SQ7 and the Bentley Bentayga are also based on the same platform. By applying the proven Volkswagen platform strategy, the development costs for the new generation of the Panamera were significantly reduced. The platform change increases the wheelbase of the Panamera by 30 millimeters, which in turn increases stability. INTERIOR The interior of the first generation Porsche Panamera was unquestionably one of its major pitfalls, with an overwhelming number of individual buttons. Porsche, however, took this criticism to heart and tidied up the interior of the new Panamera generation. Only the most important functions can be directly accessed via individual buttons, while remaining functions can be accessed through the menu on a large touch screen monitor on the dashboard. As a luxury sedan should, the new Panamera has a glass moon roof as well as comfortable massage seats. Because Panamera buyers are generally more sportscar-oriented than Mercedes S-class drivers, for example, another feature of the new Panamera proves to be a significant change. With the optional Sport Chrono Package, a push of the SPORT PLUS button on the steering wheel converts the comfortable luxury sedan into a powerful sports car.

Considering the major changes between the first and the new second generation of the Porsche Panamera, it’s clear that Porsche has managed to successfully address the main criticisms to the Panamera, making it more attractive while strengthening and emphasizing its reputation as a luxury sports sedan. The most important change to the new Panamera is its appearance, which transformed a back-heavy chassis into an extreme sports car. We are sure that the new generation of the Panamera Porsche will be a sweeping success. We look forward to seeing it on the road!

STICKING IT OUT At least once in a lifetime, or perhaps fairly often, each of us is faced with the certainty that we’ve chosen the wrong path and feels overcome by a desire to give up. We ask ourselves, was it right to risk everything, to take such a big chance? The ensuing emotional chaos and sleepless nights leave us with an unanswered question as to how to proceed. The next time you find yourself in this situation, keep in mind: successful people have experienced the same feeling, and then simply decided to continue in spite of all the risks. Long before they were famous, lots of superstars also decided that giving up was simply not an option. Here are our Top 5:
