First there were the SNAGs (sensitive new age guys), then came the metrosexuals, retrosexuals and now, the latest male breed making ladies go weak in the knees is 'neosexual'.


A typical neosexual has been identified as one having shrugged off the femininity of the metrosexual and returned to his more masculine, primitive roots.


A research, which was commissioned by a deodorant company, found 81 percent of females wanted guys to be sensitive without losing masculinity.


According to demographer and author of Man Drought, Bernard Salt, men had to reinvent themselves for new generations, as women called the shots.
