well it is a little thing called "The crisis of masculinity"- seriously. men feel they are asserting their power/ domination/ strength/ sexual prowess etc in a world that is beginning to tell them otherwise. Men that feel disempowered (whether at home, in the company of friends, or any other specific situation) will resort to "masculine" identified behaviour (such as drinking, sport, violence, violent sport, bragging about sex and their conquests etc) in order to assert their masculinity. seriously. this theory is also used to explain th occurrence of domestic violence.
