Why Don’t Men Lotion Their Feet?

Brothers ‘be-on-us’ all the time, talking ‘bout “if women wear sandals their feet better be on-point.” Well from what I’ve seen, most women have heeded this warning, and do a very good job keeping their ‘dawgs from barking.’ But enough is enough. It’s time for fellas to step up their lotion game. I can’t fathom (some of y’all say phanthom..smh), one solid reason to explain why men don’t lotion their feet. Maybe it’s cool to be dry. But that doesn’t make sense. Dry skin cracks, and crack kills. So that can’t be it. With that being said, today’s generation is a bit more progressive than we were. 40 is the new 20, medium is the new large, eyebrows are on-fleek, and folx everywhere are making it rain—without Native Americans! Wait, where was I going with this…big sigh. Oh yeah, I was discussing the issue of ‘why dont men lotion their feet.’

Ladies, how many of you have witnessed this phenomenon? Your man gets out of the shower, dries off, slaps on some lotion, but he stops short–just above his ankles!  It seems that some men seem content with applying lotion only two-thirds of the way down. WTF is that about? For real, I don’t understand this practice. There must be a reasonable explanation for why men skip the lower quadrant of the body when applying lotion. Could it be that some of them have back problems, and have a limited range-of-motion? Or perhaps this action is filed in the ‘nice to have, but not necessary’ section of the man-code? What page of the ‘code’ is that, by the way? I need to see it for myself.

To the fellas reading this, you all look silly as hell standing there in the buff, looking like you’re wearing a pair of Hanes Socks…only you’re not. You’re just ashyasfck.

And we will be doing a podcast about it soon so I can ask Drake; although I think I know his answer already. He would swear up and down and sideways, that if a man is handling his business in the bedroom, the state of his other appendages doesn’t matter.

Panama Jackson, a progressively hydrated brotha penned an editorial that explained this phenomena well. Good lookin’ out P…

Ladies, do you agree with that?

You can call me JULU. I’m a single working mother of two. I’ve been referred to as “an old soul” and have a knack for reading people. I’m friendly by nature and cool with just as many women as men. I’m that person who always gets the quiet people to talk. When giving advice, expect my answers to contain a heap load of wisdom gained from my vast personal experiences, a considerable amount of women’s intuition, and a dash of humor. I will not excuse behavior for ANYONE. Wrong is wrong, and if you do wrong then ask my opinion, expect the hard truth about it. I’m a great communicator, and enjoy talking and sharing thoughts with others. I’m also an artist, so view life creatively. I believe there are many different ways to handle the many different situations we encounter in life. Expect some humor where appropriate. I’m a trip, and will clown you as I see fit. Where guys are concerned, they typically think of me in one of two ways. I’m either like a sister, or they tend to “forget I’m a girl” because I’m so frickin’ laid back and “don’t get all emotional” like women tend to. Life is what it is, so no need in me stressing over stuff I can’t control. Don’t get me wrong I have my moments. I just usually take the common sense approach to solving problems instead of letting my heart do the talking; and then if that doesn’t work, I ask Drake. ☺ I have an Associates Degree in Business, and an Honorary Degree in “Dealing with Life’s BS.”
