Is the rugged masculine man making a comeback from the sensitive metrosexual who favors gourmet coffee and facial moisturizers?

For all the women out there, I think it’s time for you to finally answer the question of whether you like your men to be the rugged masculine type or if you prefer a bit more sensitivity in a metrosexual kind of way.

Manly vs metrosexual- what's better?

The metrosexual revolution firmly took its grip on male culture after football player David Beckham infamously wore a sarong in public and kicked off the debate in the 1990s.

In turn, nearly two decades later millions of men have become accustomed to their face moisturizer and herbal scurbs in addition to tight jeans and sometimes even tighter shirts.

In many cases, your typical manly man has disappeared among a generation of younger men.

But could there be a "menassance" revolution on our heels?

Well, if a small group of university professors in the United States have their way, there soon will be a new academic discipline called male studies.

“Males are at a point now where they are experiencing a considerable amount of dismay and uncertainty and males have somewhat been scorned, in principle by females,” Lionel Tiger told CNN.

Tiger goes on to say that the idea behind a male studies course is to explore the biology behind masculinity and that it was in part created out of a concern that our culture was “feminizing boys”.

While you may or may not agree with the theory of feminization, other men are fighting the problem by going retro.

Brett McCay supports the “retrosexual movement” and has written “The Art of Manliness” which he says men can end the confusion by embracing the tradition of machismo that includes honor and self-reliance.

Yes, rugged men are back in fashion so look out for the "menassance"

The LUCID LinenSpa mattress has open cell technology which makes the foam more resilient and is designed to not leave any long lasting body imprints. However, some that have purchased this mattress have found that a body print can form when the mattress is used for an extended period of time and the sleeper tends to sleep in the same spot every night. A simple solution is to rotate and flip the mattress as needed in order to let the open cell technology reform the indented area. Also something to keep in mind when purchasing a memory foam mattress is that when sitting on the edge of the mattress it can give more than a traditional mattress does and can be a surprise when first sitting on it.
Many users that purchase this memory foam mattress agree that it is a great mattress for the price but they also have noted that there are little things to consider when buying a memory foam mattress. For example when the mattress first arrives and is taken out of the box many users experience a new paint-like smell that can be slightly overwhelming. Many have found that by letting the mattress air out for a few hours or even a few days’ helps with the smell and eventually it is gone. Also it takes a bit of time for the mattress to fully “inflate” to its full size, this usually only takes a few hours. Some have also noticed that the mattress does regulate their body heat well but sometimes it is too warm or if the individual runs a little hotter than the mattress may retain more heat than is necessary. Many have found that they adjust to the heat issue after a period of time.
