Opinion | Tell Us About Your Man Cave


It evokes, in the most rudimentary sense, beer fridges and car parts, Super Bowl ads and maybe even Jerry Seinfeld’s bachelor pad, where he displayed his 17 favorite cereal boxes on a shelf. It’s the man cave: punchline, poker hub and perennial source of masculine escape.

To Tristan Bridges, a sociologist who is studying the phenomenon, the man cave is also a window into the dynamics of a home, into friendship and loneliness, hobbies and pastimes — and what our physical spaces can tell us about ourselves. For the past few years, he has been interviewing people about their caves, and now Opinion is, too.

Do you live in the United States and have a space (a room, a basement, even just a corner) that could be described, cheekily or not, as a man cave? Would you be open to being interviewed about it?

If so, please fill out the form below. A reporter or photographer may be in touch with you to get more details for a future project. (We won’t publish your response or personal details without your permission.)
