Pinterest Is a hot topic amongst photographers, we all pretty much fall in one of two camps. Some of us like the added exposure that Pinterest can provide, and others dislike it for using copyrighted images without permission. This is of course an over simplification, but you catch the drift. Now there is a new Pinterest clone for us to keep an eye on aimed specifically at men, it is called Manteresting.
The concept is generally the same as Pinterest, except for a few key details:
- Everything posted must be “Manly” or of Interest to men. (aka tools, cars, sexy women)
- You don’t “Pin” things on Manteresting, you “Nail” them. (lol)
- A Strict SFW (Safe for Work) Policy. Anything NSFW gets deleted.

I can’t help but laugh that someone felt the need to create a site like this specifically for men and “manly” things. I mean sure, Pinterest is pretty focused on “girly” topics… but I would argue this is caused by the fact that the site is used by mostly women.
At any rate this is sure to stir up some more commotion with the copyright bible thumpers. Though, I can see this possibly being an interesting tool for people who do couples photography. Have the Women do a Pinterest board, and have the Men do a Manteresting board. I don’t know, just a goofy thought.
What do you think? Is there a need for sex specific Pinterest-esq sites? Let us know in the comments below.
