Product description


‘A clever, engaging set of essays… very incisive.’ -- The Guardian

‘Brilliant.... Simpson capers like Robin Goodfellow, stripping off the fig leaves with exuberance.’ -- The Observer

‘Mark simpson could do for male sexuality what Camille Paglia did for women....’ -- Melody Maker

‘Simpson pulls the pants off popular culture and wittily winks at the freudian symbols lurking beneath.’ 4/4 stars -- The Modern Review

‘This set of high-spirited essays displays more insight into the masculine mystique than has the decade of earnest men’s studies that preceded it.‘ -- Choices


Examines some issues surrounding masculinity in gay culture. The book - intended to be both entertaining and challenging - examines, for instance, whether male body-builders are covert transexuals, and how gay men play with manliness as a kind of drag.
