    The metrosexual is dead. Long live the 'spornosexual'


    20 years ago, Mark Simpson coined the term 'metrosexual'. But now a new, more extreme, sex- and body-obsessed version has emerged, he explains

    If this is what spornosexual means, then God help us all
    If you're confused by the new term 'spornosexual' - a more extreme sex- and body-obsessed male - Louisa Peacock brings you terrifying evidence of what this means in practice

    According to that article, it seems to be saying that it's horrible for straight guys to take care of their bodies.

    It seems that women don't like the competition of guys taking care of themselves because it most likely distracts from them.

    I agree, the bathing suit looks hideous but just my preference. If these two guys were wearing short hot speedos, which they could easily wear, would the reaction to their 'self pampering' be as outrageous? I'm guessing these two are gay, not that it matters, but just because they take good care of themselves, want to have a polished look and appear to search for perfection in their appearance, should not make them subject for women hating on guys.

    If this were a guy writing the article about girls in teeny weeny bikinis, women would be all over the writer for his attack on women world wide!

    Yeah, although, like Robert Smigel's characters used to say when they saw Ace and Gary, "That Doesn't Mean Anything!" icon_wink.gif

    Lou Is a Pea Cock (Telegraph-UK)The term encapsulates the new breed of male who thinks nothing of using (and abusing) products, practises and pleasures previously only the domain of women and gay men. Practises including wearing half-thongs to the beach.
