Man cave

Man caves seem to be popping up all over the country – in basements and garages, dens, attics and unused bedrooms – at least if TV ads are accurately reflecting reality.  A man cave is a sanctuary for the modern man, mostly equipped with a large screen TV, video games, Wii, comfortable loungers that often lack severely in the design department and – of course – a fridge for a few cool ones.

This is were the modern man and his buddies hang out, watch sports, complain about their wives, play games, use the f-word in over-abundance  and probably visit a few sites on their computer that nether their wives, nor their mothers or priests would approve of.

The fact that the man caves defy all good taste and design sense seems part of the allure – this is where big fish and deer heads get mounted on walls, pages from the Sports Illustrated swim suit calendar adorn walls and brown pleather is all the rage.

I guess it is called man cave for a reason.   The term man space apparently exists but I have never heard anybody use it.
