Looking for a "mancation"?

Forbes magazine reports on the Waltham-based firm that offers ways for guys to create their own masculine getaways, often called "mancations" or "manscapes."

I'm In! helps users create gender-specific vacations, and recently published, in collaboration with a Boston market research firm, figures that say 20 million men spend $10-$12 billion a year on guys-only getaways.

The Globe's Don Aucoin earlier this year did a story on the phenomenon and was interviewed on NECN about it.

Correspondent Susan Chaityn Lebovits wrote a piece accompanying the article.
