That's certainly a colourful euphemism for what I do with my DNA in there.

It's masturbatorium you bloody knave

I call it my "Nag-No-More" room.

I assure you my masturbatorium was built with wipe clean surfaces.

If by "in your DNA" you mean "getting the fark away from your nagging wife", subby.

When you get married, your "man cave" is basically what used to be called "your apartment".

Insist on watching "Goodfellas" and episodes of "Blue Mountain State" on Netflix over and over again until she backs down. If that doesn't work, well, you probably don't need a man cave anyway.

Or just say "Awesome! I didn't know there were so many Steven Seagal movies on Netflix". That's what did it for me.

Hours long marathons of Red Dead Redemption got me the Bond villain home office I wanted AND a new 42" TV.

I don't have a mancave, I use my living room with my 50" tv and leather couches, because y'know, we're both adults. Sometimes she watches me play xbox for hours, and other times she watches 2 broke girls or something. It's give and take in our, get this, healthy relationship.

If you have/need a "mancave", there's already pretty much no hope for you.

It's great that that works for you. Just because it may not work for everyone doesn't mean that they're in "unhealthy" relationships.

Perhaps I worded it too harshly. You may be right, can't help how I feel though.

There's the honeymoon sex, duty sex and hallway sex - marriage changes

Seriously, when starting marriage and pre-kids you still share lots

Kids come along, guy spends more time at work to pay for them/stay sane

Interests diverge

Makes more sense for the guy to decorate one room exactly his way and let wife have rest of the house the way she wants it to be, rather than half and half

Men have always had a retreat - just that in the past it's been the tin shed out in the back garden

Or your wife doesn't insist on watching Biggest Loser, the Bachelor, the Bachelorette, American Idol, The Voice, America's Got Talent, etc. I farking love, no, I NEED my mancave.

Im poor, I cant afford a place with an extra room to make into a mancave.

If we were wealth enough, Id like to take it even further than a mancave. We would have a mancave, a hercave, and a big playroom where the kids can go, and GTFO of the rest of the house.

Oh, and a game room, since the wife and I both play tabletop miniatures games.

Sigh. My mancave is headphones.

My soon-to-be wife and I are spoiled. I have a gaming room/man cave, and she has a sewing/hobby room. We usually hang out in the living room and watch movies or TV together at least twice a week, tho... so we don't forget about each other.

It's nice having two incomes and no responsibility.

If you have to get permission, you don't need a man cave.

Henceforth, the appellation "mancave" shall be known as "The Gentlemen's Parlour and Meat Beat Release Area."

Read that as "Meat Beat Release Arena" and liked it much more before I realized what you actually said.

dchurch0: "Meat Beat Release Arena"


Don't forget to yell out afterwards, so all can hear you in the rest of the house, "ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED!?"
