Excellent blueprint for guys to look at and think about.

Additional Discussion:

For men to effectively lead, they need real confidence and "reserves", so before a guy steps up to run this fun and challenging gauntlet (well worthy endeavor mind you) ... make sure you have good confidence, solid reserves, and feel comfortable with your masculinity.

If you aren't and are engaged with a female partner, be clear and open and communicate often.

Men currently do not have the support systems to build this at a ramp up speed of women's desires and expectations. We are talking several generations of women who have worked on themselves and fought for equality.

Right now in our society, men do not feel safe and lack trust. One can not lead, build reserves, or grow authentic masculinity when these things exist.

I believe this is the crux (my opinion) of the issue, the pool of guys that hit 1 - 14 of these items is very shallow.

So I chuckle (seeing your tag line of who you are in a few bytes), hitting all 14 is like running and competing in the olympics, when right now we just want guys to get off the couch and start to positive walk.

Great article.
