I probably could have told you that American men were in bad shape (both financially and physically) but I didn’t realize just how bad until now. The average guy has almost $15k in debt and only $3k in savings, and 16% of guys rarely pay off their credit card bills. If this isn’t why Frugal Dad was founded back in 2007, then I don’t know what is.
But my blog has always been about how to improve with a few simple steps, and this graphic is no different. I’m excited about this one – it’s useful in looking at the average American guy, and it gives sound advice for improving your finances and getting active. Enjoy!
Love, Frugal Dad

Giggling is aloud. We take ourselves way to seriously. Rectal douching sounds hilarious, laugh it out. Laughing is good for you. Just be mindful that this is a serious study and answering honestly is very helpful.
The International Rectal Microbicide Advocates (IRMA) and researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Public Health are conducting a brief survey to better understand the types of products people use rectally for anal sex including lubricants and enemas or douches.
They are trying to gain a better understanding of rectal practices and behaviors that may affect the risk for sexually transmitted infections among people who practice anal intercourse. LifeLube hopes you will fill out this brief anonymous survey – whether you douche or not.
Survey is open to men, women, and transgendered individuals and is avaialble in English, Spanish, French, Chinese and Russian.
Please take the survey, and share the link with friends and colleagues.
