Best Places For Women To Drag Their Men For Punishment


Sorry to say, but this list is not about S&M. We're pretty much rated PG here at YAHglobal.Com, most of the time. Instead, this itemized list represents the places that women can drag their boyfriends, boys who are friends, or husbands when they have misbehaved. Now we don't intend to be sexist towards the guys in this here list. We do acknowledge the fact that there are those XY chromosones out there that can shop til they drop with the best of them. Plus, there is a growing trend that finds the Mani-Pedi no longer belonging to the fairer sex. However, for the most part the average male, the "man's man" or even the horribly monickered "Joe 6-Pack" (created by hopefully soon forgotten Vice Presidential Ex-Candidate) cringes at the thought of spending more than 3 hours at any retail venue that does not involve items that require multiple 3 pronged powerbar plug ins. Nor do they put their feet up for anything other than placing them on a sofa or makeshift ledge as chair of some sort.

This list is for the women that have to suffer through that lack of "support" day in and day out. So if he's been a bad boy, or its your birthday, or just a Tuesday and you've got torture on the mind, drag him along to these fine establishments. You never know, he might like it...especially the Mani-Pedi.


Fashion Island

401 Newport Center Drive, Newport Beach

Fashion Island is a Shopaholic's retail Mecca. The stores are definitely skewed more towards the better half of our species with only a few places for the average guy to run into for solace (Apple Store, Borders, etc... well, not much of an "etc..." actually). With multi leveled department stores Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus, Macy's and a bevy of boutique shops scattered about the maze that is Fashion Island, shoppers should plan for a 6 hr stay in order to do the trip properly.

Fella's, you must have done a very bad thing to get yourself into this situation.


South Coast Plaza

3333 Bristol Street, Costa Mesa, CA

While not located directly in Laguna Beach (which is the only reason its not number 1 on this list), South Coast Plaza represents all that is high end fashion in the Orange County area and is probably responsible for many false missing persons reports regarding shoppers that wandered in, never to be seen again that day, only to be found the following sunrise in the Bloomingdale's dressing room passed out from exhaustion.

Men have been spotted on mall benches with the heads hanging to their laps with a single tear pouring down their cheeks as they check their watches for the umpteenth time wondering if they have been completely forgotten about. Guys, yes you have.


Spa Montage

30801 South Coast Highway, Laguna Beach, CA


Voted (Kim Vo) "Best Blonder In The Business" by Vogue Magazine. That says it all doesn't it?


I addition to the Kim Vo Salon, Spa Montage facilities also include indoor/outdoor treatment rooms, a mind/body movement studio (no idea), and luxury lounges. Services come with treatments that include ocean & earth elements, touch, facial and pre-natal therapies, as well as signature treatments. Programs include standard fitness and wellness programs and not-so-standard retreats and workshops. All of this combined with the fact that you could spend hours walking throughout the magnificent courtyard and elegant interiors of the Montage Resort & Spa and you have a fairytale come true for many women. 


There is a catch to the inclusion of Spa Montage on this list. Men may go in kicking and screaming but come out lucid, refreshed, and void of visible pours. Beware ladies as this "punishment" tactic can backfire. You may book your next visit to Spa Montage as a day with the ladies, only to find your husband stowed away in the hatch of your SUV hoping to join in on the fun once again.
