Male refers to one of two primary genders of all living organisms and even some non-living. Yes, even the undead have a gender. Males are defined by an XY chromosome as opposed to the XX chromosome possessed by those of the female gender.

They are also noted for excessive body hair and lack of perky breasts; unless the guy is really out of shape, at which point he may be develop a bouncing pair of "man-boobs", or "moobs".
Biochemically, males often strive for a dominant position when in the presence of females and even other males. Such machismo may take the form of excessive chest-beating, feats of strength and/or daring-do, a limitless capacity to drink beer, power-farting and the neverending quest to prove that one's dong is bigger than another guy's.
