About

There’s no playbook for how to be a guy.

But at MEL, we’re trying to figure one out. A lifestyle and culture magazine, we cover sex, relationships, health, money, work and culture from a male point-of-view — even though we’re not all male, and aren’t entirely sure what that means anymore. We tell stories that no one is hearing, share perspectives no one is considering, and illuminate people no one knows. Come here for original content on the topics guys care about the most, for the enjoyment, education and betterment of us all. (We also talk about dicks a lot.)

Thanks for reading. We’re trying our best.

Founded in 2015 in L.A. by Dollar Shave Club.
