About 22PlusY. Why the name. Who’s it for?


There are many sites devoted to issues about women and mothers and their interests, but few for men.

As the founder, I’m a guy in my late fifties and a grandfather of (at the moment) three beautiful and smart children.

I started 22PlusY in 2019 as a place for general ‘bloke’ stuff, with a view to creating content that would, over time, interest any male readership.

22PlusY exists as a place where men will find information on interests, wellbeing, social interests, legislation, style, etc. An inclusive site for all men.

I have researched articles such as Prostate cancer… something that, potentially, affects anyone with a prostate, gay or straight, equally.

Authorship is sought from people in different fields and backgrounds, with a view to being informative and helpful.

Why the name?:

All humans share 22 chromosomes, with the 22nd and 23rd being the ‘sex’ chromosomes. If they are  ‘XX’ the person is born female; if they are X’Y’ the person is born male.

So, 22 generic chromosomes, plus a ‘Y’ in the 23rd position.

Who’s it for?:

Of course, we welcome all readers to the site but 22PlusY is a site designed for men, by men. The concept is simple, if your 23rd chromosome is a ‘Y’ this is the place for you.

If there are ‘X’ types reading and it helps them to help their ‘Y’ type friends and family, so much the better.
