A term used to describe that one little room (or garage) that the man of the household is given permission by his wife or girlfriend to furnish how he wants and do whatever he wants in it. It should be noted that the word 'man' is used very loosely when referring to a man cave. A real man doesn't allow himself to be shoved into one corner of his own house.

a bastardization of "den" or "study" that has brought shame to the english language. man cave is one of those words that makes the listener shudder.

origin of man cave: coined by a slob at the end of the first decade of the 21st century, the repulsive word "man cave" was picked up by a growing population of people with bad taste to describe a deplorable emerging phenomenon of banality. whereas in the past, men who were lucky enough to have an extra room in their houses would generally use them for research, writing, or other constructive activities, a certain new group of men with an abundance of resources and nothing upstairs, began using their extra rooms for sloth and hedonism. words like "study" could no longer be used in a coherent way, while more accurate words likes "porn room" had too many negative connotations. thus, man cave was created to describe this unfortunate consequence of a society afflicated by the disease of affluence.

essential characteristics: man cave is a place where an over-sized slob sits in an over-sized arm chair in front of an over-sized tv and looks at ugly women with over-sized breasts, in a part of the house away from his over-sized wife.

A place where castrated men hang out after being banished by their wives. Usually relegated to an out-of-the-way basement, while women take control of the main areas of the home. Said castrated "men" feel the need to add "man" to the word "cave" to otherwise impose masculinity when they clearly have none. For real men, the entire house is theirs, and there's no reason to add "man" to anything because it's implied that men own everything.
Denise banished Tom to the basement where he pissed and moaned with his friends about their wives. Out of spite, they dubbed their basement the "man cave" to feel in control of something.
