The Peacock Effect | Redefining The Middle-Aged Man

We need a broader definition of what being a man is. I remember a female friend of mine many years ago trying to figure me out. She came to the conclusion that I was either a player or gay.

Although I really like the idea, I’m a bit torn on the issue. Swim shirts, or rash guards are tops designed originally for surfers to protect them from abrasions caused by their wetsuits.
