The Good Men Project started as a way to start an international conversation about what it means to be a good man, and it has since grown into a premier online destination for men’s culture.
The Good Men Project offers a platform for individuals to discuss what it takes to be a good man living in the modern, 21st century era. The site was founded by Tom Matlock as an opportunity for men to write about their lives, about masculinity, and the ways in which their gender plays in to their every day lives. There are very few, if any, other sites like The Good Men Project on the Internet, and that’s what makes its content so compelling. The site is set up in a blog format, with articles published in various categories. There’s also the option to receive news and stories from The Good Men Project in the form of a daily email. The site truly approaches male-oriented content in a way unparalleled by other sites across the web.
The categories included on The Good Men Project are “Sex & Relationships,” “Dads & Families,” “Marriage,” “Advice & Confessions,” “Sports,” “Ethics,” and “The Good Life.” While the others are relatively self-explanatory, the latter category features articles and stories about discovering, in general, how to lead a good life. Articles include headlines such as “Finding Beauty While Living With Uncertainty.” While The Good Men Project is completely free to browse, the site also offers the opportunity to become a premium member. Membership grants individuals ad-free viewing of the site, access to monthly video chats hosted on the site that feature interviews celebrities and intellectuals about manhood, a coupon for the print book publication of The Good Men Project, and an invite to the annual webinar discussion of the project. The cost of a premium membership is relatively low, at $2 per month or $20 for a full year.
