Boys’ Night Out


Boys’ Night Out



So what do boys talk about when they get together away from their wives and partners? Is it all sport and DIY, or do they really spend their time discussing the importance of male grooming and the price of vasectomies? 

 
We gatecrashed a poker night and surveyed a group of ‘boys’ (aged between 30 and 43) about how often they like it, what their wives/partners think about it, and what they talk about when they’re doing it  (boys’ nights – that is). Here’s what they had to say:
 
Lars

Yes, but only if the ratio of nights out goes 2 to 1 in her favour
 
What does a boys’ night usually entail (do you go to the pub, play sport, Hooters etc)? 
Watch sport, drink and talk about stupid stuff that we thought was fun as 20 year olds 
 
Do you ever talk about children/share parenting advice - what do you talk about? 
Yes, we talk about other frustrating parents and dads thinking that their children can do everything earlier than others. Like swimming and riding bikes.
