These picks are the best way to spend your hard-earned cash.This Endorsement starts with a broad suggestion: Get yourself a headlamp. I acknowledge that it is an Extremely Dad thing to own. In fact, it was my dad who first introduced me to headlamp culture. The thing is, dads are smart. They don't waste their money on inefficient, superfluous gadgets. And a headlamp's possibilities are endless. It is a running light, a camping light, a work light, a reading light, a biking light, and an emergency light. You can use it while clipping your kid's and/or pet's fingernails, or fixing something under the hood. It will illuminate any task—any task—before you. It will illuminate you

Best Hot Sex Games For Couples

LifeStyle
There are party games and video games and mind games, and then there are good, romp-in-the-bed sex games. These games inject some excitement into a relationship, and they are not as lazy as a simple game of "Truth or Dare" that you'll inevitably quit after two rounds, because it's boring. (Don't get us started on "Never Have I Ever." We're not bonding in our freshman dorms at State anymore.) And keeping things fun in a relationship is pretty damn important, especially if your relationship is well past the honeymoon phase. A 2016 study found that participants in long-term relationships of at least three years who enjoyed more orgasms, engaged in more oral sex, and experimented with more sex positions reported being highly satisfied with their sex lives. And wouldn't you know it, ...

Buy $74, amazon.com; status.coWelcome to The Esquire Endorsement. Heavily researched. Thoroughly vetted. These picks are the best way to spend your hard-earned cash.There are different stylistic genres of headphones. If your intended usage falls under the "sweat til you drop" category, then you might choose something that would look right on Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's head. If you want art, then a brand like Master & Dynamic makes headphones that are crafted masterpieces. If you want deep bass and streamlined design, it's Beats by Dre that'll look right over your ears. But all of these very good pairs of wireless headphones are expensive as all hell. And if you assumed the vast majority of cheap headphones look and sound cheap because they are cheap, you'd be correct. But Status's...

Gilang Widiatmaja / EyeEmGetty Images It's Vape Ban Day. Welcome. Around the country, vapers and parents and teens and politicians and people trying to quit cigarettes are wondering: What does this mean? You could not be blamed for being confused as all hell. In the last year, we've been yanked back and forth and sideways on the status of vaping. The CDC started counting up vaping-related illnesses and deaths while Juul closed up its flavored pod shop (it's still selling menthol and tobacco pods, though). Apple banned vaping-related apps from the App Store, and Congress raised the legal age to buy tobacco to 21. Some cities and states enacted their own bans but then saw them chopped down in the courts. Vape proponents still claim nicotine pods helped ...

11 Best Weed Vaporizers 2020

Vaping weed doesn’t stink. It doesn’t tear up your throat. And besides the relative respiratory ease, vaping is subtle—unless you make a spectacle of it, crowning yourself that guy. A lot of folks say the effect is more pleasing, more controlled than smoking marijuana. (People who don’t regularly partake might find vaping to be much more intense than smoking, according to a recent study.) Although you do lose that vitally transformative experience of coughing over a joint or ripping a bong. Hey, sacrifices must be made.Vapes get cannabis bud or concentrate hot enough to release those good compounds that get you sailing, but not so hot the cannabis burns up into the smoke that vape users are trying to avoid. To broadly summarize in the least boring way possible, there are two kinds of weed

20 Upcoming Switch Games 2020

LifeStyle
Courtesy It finally happened. The Nintendo Switch surpassed the Super Nintendo in lifetime sales, with over 50 million units moved since the console launched in 2017. This puts the handheld/non-handled device above the bulk of Nintendo’s console library, including the N64, Wii U, and GameCube. All that’s left for the Switch to beat is the NES and the Wii. The Switch could very well become the best-selling Nintendo console of all time. Damn. What a time to be a Nintendo fan.Now that the Switch is getting into its third year, the pressure is on. The console premiered with some must-have titles like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Since then, we’ve seen games like Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Pokémon Swor

Courtesy So, you're a gamer, huh, and you're looking to buy your next monitor. But where to start? You don't want to buy too low, because you'll end up with input lag and a shitty picture, but god knows gaming can get expensive if you go high-end. There’s no way you're spending $3,000-plus when you could buy or build a killer gaming PC for a fraction of that price. The monitor world is overrun with, luckily, a lot of pretty solid options. But now you've got to decide what's important to you. Do you need a high refresh rate and low input lag for playing competitive shooters, or would you rather put an emphasis on colors and visuals for more artistic titles?For the folks who are getting fed up with all the weird acronyms, here’s a run
