As a photographer who works with males mostly, I am noticing that less and less attention is being paid on this site to male models. As well, participation of photographers featuring male models has also seemingly declined. Is there a reason why MM has, at least in my opinion, become less interested in featuring male models? Is MM making any effort to promote male models? It would be sad to lose this market, as I am sure others might seek to fill the void. It would be sad if MM lost it's opportunity to market male models to a greater extent.

Yes. MM should be marketing male models.

I think the MM images you see are mostly a function of what users post, what members vote for in contests and what you decide to search for and view, more than any decision on the part of MM.   I’m sure you can find hundreds if not thousands of male model photos once you find the right lists.

As others have said, there’s less participation in general, that’s not unique to photographers who focus on male models, that’s across the board.
