Daytime, we are told over and over again, is a women's medium. The stories are driven by women, produced by women and viewed by women. Men are nothing more than pawns in fundamentally female stories (or so Y&R's Eric Braeden whines at every opportunity).

In 1992, Guiding Light decided to put that convention to the test, by penning an all-male episode centered around Hamp Speakes' bachelor party.

As an added bonus, the men in question were all actually men i.e. males over the age of 25, and not the pretty boys that daytime is also often accused of hiring at the expense of talented actors.

Was GL's toe-dip in the pool of pure testosterone their Greatest Moment ever? Take a gander at a clip on and let us know!
