Overview

Find out what really drives the men who bring us the "ideal" male image! I'll Cover You in $20 Bills: The Male Body Beauty Business breaks down the stereotypes associated with seventeen different professions ranging from plastic surgeon to porn star and exposes the secrets and insecurities of the men who work in them.
