6-J: Vulnerable Or Agentic? Medicalized Consumption and Its Impact on Consumer Identity

Over the last few decades, the notions of masculinity have undergone significant changes. Traditional masculinity, which is associated with the pursuit of agentic goals, physical strength, domination and resourcefulness, had to be renegotiated to accommodate new emerging male identities. This paper investigates the impact of medicalization on consumer notions of masculinity.
