I have found it is those men who aspire to hypermasculinity (body building, etc.) that want it up the a@@ the most.

I have as well, hypermasculinity is the other side of drag. It's seen in the gay culture throughout America in Leather, Bear(masculine hairy men), biker bars. They all have the same theme, and people who go there looking for a certain look often describe their experiences as seeing what they like in other men until said men open their mouths and talk. Usually what comes out of their mouths is effeminate.
