Everyone knows that guys have a hard time talking about health. But, when it comes to cancer, there's no excuse to keep your mouth shut. As the good folks at Movember
have proven since 2003, talking about cancer heightens awareness, saves lives and raises tons of money to fight things like prostate cancer
, as well as other ailments that hit men the hardest. The surest way to start that conversation: Drape your face with a sweet, sweet 'stache
We're here to encourage any and everyone (even the ladies) to join in and help out in this great cause. Keep reading to find out more about Movember and how by participating you can raise some money, get sexy and even win some sweet Movember gear, including the grand prize: a Movember-themed FlipCam
Just in case you have some trepidation about growing a 'stache, we asked for facial hair feedback from a few people at the recent Movember 2010 launch party in NYC. Turns out the mustache is sexy.
And if you're physically incapable of growing a mustache
-- or afraid of societal disapproval -- you can still participate in the Movember movement by donating money to a participant's campaign. Why not start with Asylum's
