Back in the flaky-skinned early Nineties Mark Simpson predicted the future of men was metrosexual. Two decades on even he's shocked by what hussies today's males have become - and the shameless, fatal Jersey Shore that masculinity has washed up on.
Metrosexy collects Simpson's essays chronicling the emergence from his walk-in closet of man's desire to be desired. And just how terrifyingly insatiable it turned out to be. He takes a long look at men that long to be looked at, from metrosexual poster boy David Beckham to Daniel Craig's busty James Bond, and concludes that the masculine aesthetic revolution is only just beginning to get into its sashay.
"Contrary to what you've been told," says Simpson, "metrosexuality is not about flip-flops and facials, 'man-bags' or 'manscara'. Or about men becoming 'girlie' or 'gay'. It's about men becoming everything. To themselves. In much the way that women have been for some time. It's the end of the sexual division of bathroom and bedroom labour. It's the end of sexuality as we've known it."
More fun-packed than Beck's bulging briefs, The Situation's six-pack - or Ronaldo's ego - Metrosexy will leave you gasping and giggling and gagging for more.
PRAISE FOR SIMPSON AND METROSEXY:
“Wildly intelligent and terrifyingly funny, his outlandish predictions on the fate of mankind have all proved unnervingly prescient. I dread to think what he might come up with next. Read him at your leisure but ignore him at your peril.”
– Jake Arnott, author of ‘The Long Firm’
"Much has been written about metrosexuals, but no one has done it as well as the man credited with coining the term, Mark Simpson."
– The Times of India
“Simpson writes with enough panache to make most of his contemporaries toss their laptops in the waste-disposal and weep.”
– Simon Price, Independent on Sunday
