The Man Cave, a male retreat or sanctuary inside a home where guys can do as they please without fear of upsetting female sensibility regarding home decor or design. Perhaps the last bastion of masculinity left in the house, the Man Cave is a private spot to make his own. While a wife or girlfriend may have substantial authority over a whole house in terms of design and decoration, she generally has no say about what gets mounted on the walls of the Man Cave.
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, play video games, watch movies, and just fraternize by the bar. It's important for a man to have a place to call his own. A male area to which to retreat. Rules are relaxed; it is a place where other people's sensibilities about standards are not necessarily observed. And let's be honest, sometimes even a man needs his me-time.
In a sense, for married men, it is a way to recreate some of the space and freedom of their bachelor days since it was like a pad similar in feeling to a frat house game room or a college dorm room where people could come and go as if they owned the place. It is where a man doesn't have to be on his best behavior, where no women are around, and where no one is going to make you watch what you say and no one is going to ask you to explain yourself for not being politically correct.
