  1. Metrosexual

    Metrosexual is a portmanteau of metropolitan and sexual describing a man in an urban, post-industrial, capitalist culture, who is especially meticulous about his grooming and appearance, typically spending a significant amount of time and money on shopping as part of this. The term initially did not assert whether a metrosexual is heterosexual, gay or a bisexual man, but in marketing practice the metrosexual is considered "straight."
