Safe Mode: On
‘Metrosexuals’ Epidemic in Pakistan

LAHORE: In Pakistan, as militant wage war on anything smacking of Western culture, “metrosexual” man is quietly on the rise.

Confounding expectations in a country where most street scenes are filled with men wearing the traditional shalwar kameez, a simple cotton tunic, male grooming salons are springing up in the main cities.

Despite Pakistan’s dire economy and widespread poverty, rich urbanites have more disposable cash than ever and are now spending it on their image, says Hassan Kilde Bajwa, of Synergy advertising agency.

Bajwa says the rise of the metrosexual, or “metropolitan heterosexual” man, is a result of a liberalised banking sector and a massive explosion of media in a country that 15 years ago had just two television channels and no FM radio.

“Now people have a much greater disposable income because of all the banking reforms we have had over the past

  • I never heard of metrosexuals before. Is it something got to do with trains? I've heard of heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, even asexual, now there are metrosexuals. God damn American culture! Here we don't have these terms, everyone is considered normal(heterosexual), even the term heterosexual doesn't exist. (it's like a world with only atheists but the world "atheist" doesn't exist because there's no religions)

  • Those poor bastards.

    The trend in the US lasted only a year or two when women thought they liked men behaving like women, but then they changed their mind when they actually got what they wanted and left a lot of foolish looking men pissed.

    They're going to be pissed when they see the fickle desires of women are universal.

    • what u talking about man? Have't u been watching the jersey shore etc... or Going to clubs? Metrosexuals are still alive and will in the U.s and they're even making a come-back with shows like jersylicous and the jersey shore. If anything America is where the metrosexual mentality first started from.
