A lot of life is about pushing and pulling. They tell me the trick is knowing when to push, and when to pull, and also when to use your opponent's strength against them by not pushing at all or stepping aside to watch them fall flat on their face.
Now, as always, start at the bottom and...Bottoms Up!
It's less tits more arts these days over at Maxim Magazine. Hardly surprising given DQ is Editor-at-Large with a free hand in suggesting what they should be bringing to the attention of the world.
Support the cause and grab a copy or two...it may just surprise you.

come: yacht racing...
We have a few spots left aboard our classic racing schooner, with accommodations for the week at the St James Club 5* All Inclusive Resort when we are not aboard and racing fueled by magnificent winds and our fantastic Provençal Quinn Rosé.
You can join us for the whole shenanigan, or just jet in and out on your G700 if you prefer.

read: type 7
We've known Ted Gushue for more than a hot minute. Way before he was galavanting around the globe for Porsche and indulging in pretty much everything DQ would approve of, he almost single-handedly built Petrolicious.
This book recounts the first year of his new project, Type 7, the instagram only Porsche magazine, with select images shot over the year and collated into this glossy coffee table tome.
But there's nothing wrong with that.
cocktail: the martinez
The Martinez, grand-daddy of the Martini, dates back to sometime around 1860. The First written recipe we could find was from 1884 in "The Modern Bartender's Guide," by O.H. Bryon & Brian Rea.
1 1/2 ounce Old Tom Gin
1 1/2 ounce Sweet Red Vermouth
1 teaspoon (Luxardo) Maraschino
2 dashes orange bitters
Stir the ingredients over ice, strain into a chilled (frozen) Nick & Nora glass, garnish with lemon twist.
