The term "Metrosexual" (Metropolitan Heterosexual) is defined by it's social psychological relationship to homophobia in it's counterpart: Rural Heterosexuality.

Isolated, these terms suggest the magnitude of personal contacts the metropolitan heterosexual (metro-sexual) encounters with lesbians and gay men represents higher altitudes of social acceptance for gay culture. Whereas, in less populated vicinities, (less people = less gays) heterosexuals will be less likely to accurately define the world entirely in heterosexual terms since they have less to compare their "straitness".

In the southern US: Any man who showers three or more times a week.

Defining a straight man who is very in tune to hip, urban lifestyle. He is immaculate in his appearance and doesn't mind spending huge amounts of money on clothing and shoes as well as skin and hair products. He also may spend large amounts of time in a gym or health facility because of his obsession with his body. Although he is straight, his trendy, stylish appearance may be more closely associated with that of a gay male.
