Look out metrosexual – the “spornosexual” has arrived.
This second-generation metrosexual is a hypersexual, body-obsessed man, and he’s totally selfie-fixated too, according to UK journalist Mark Simpson, who previously coined the term metrosexual 20 years ago.
Rob Weiner, pop culture expert at Texas Tech University, says he is not at all surprised by this development. “Our society has become increasingly obsessed with our bodies. We want everything to be so perfect and the truth is that it’s all a dream. Men’s bodies are not perfect, but it’s like there is this weird reversal of roles that women were often obsessed with. So now men are so concerned with buying shoes and having perfect pristine bodies. These trends come and go, you know.”
