    First off, let me preface by saying that I do drink. Not often and actually not at all right now as it's incompatible with my gym goals, but I love wine and will have a beer in a bar once in a while. For some reason, it is bothering me that every time I log in here I get bombarded with beer ads. Granted, it's low-carb, low-cal "healthy" beer (eww), but it still kind of irks me that a site that's dedicated to fitness isn't sponsored by something healthier. What do you guys think?

    These are targeted ads. The ads you see here are determined by other sites you've been on, as well as the content of the pages you view. The web browser on my phone doesn't have an adblocker like my desktop browser. And every time I visit this site, I always see ads for supplements, gay cruises, and other gay social networking sites. I have never seen ads for beer.

    Try this: go into your browser settings and disable third party cookies. That should help minimize (but not totally eliminate) the amount of irrelevant ads you see on this site, as well as on other sites.

    I always get ads for contact lenses, underwear and flights.

    I have AdBlock, so I don't see any ads.

    Right? I decided that I might buy a pair just because.


    Plus without the ads I never would have heard of Sean Cody or Corbin Fischer.

    (I don't watch em .. but I "browse" occasionally)
