A man caveor manspace, and less commonly a manland or mantuary is a male retreator sanctuaryin a home, such as a specially equipped garage, spare bedroom, media room, den, basement, or tree house. The term 'man cave' is a metaphor describing a room where one or more male family members and optionally their friends are supposed to be able to do as they please, without fear of upsetting any female household members with their interior design choices. Paula Aymer of Tufts University calls it the 'last bastion of masculinity'. The first known use of the phrase is from March 21, 1992, in the Toronto Star by Joanne Lovering: 'With his cave of solitude secured against wife intrusion by cold floors, musty smells and a few strategic cobwebs, he will stay down there for hours nestled in very manly magazines and open boxes of tools. Let's call the basement, man cave. ' The phrase gained traction with the 1993 publication of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus by John Gray. While a mans wife may have substantial authority over the rest of the house in terms of design and decoration, she often has no say in the look of a man's personal space. Because, historically, the wife decided the decor of the home (due to the role of caring for the family and managing household affairs), a man cave is the only space where a man can express his creativity and sense of design. Purpose Man caves have multiple purposes: they are a place to be alone, to indulge in hobbies, and to hang out with male friends. It is, loosely, a male-only space to retreat to watch sports matches, play video games, or hang out with friends. According to psychiatrist and author Scott Haltzman, it is important for a man to have a place to call his own, referring to a male area to which to retreat. Rules are relaxed, it is a place where other people's sensibilities about standards of cleanliness are not necessarily observed. In a sense, for married men, it is a way to recreate some of the space and freedom of their pad, frat house, or college dorm room, where people could come and go as if they owned the place.
