Today Dr. Tom and Mike AKA "Audio Velvet" take a deep dive into the social phenomenon of The "Mama's Boy" label. Is it positive? Is it negative? Well, that depends really on how you look at it.

Yep... now we're in business. Here at Dapper Effects, we believe in this concept that every woman secretly wants a man with a little "Mama's Boy" in him.

We love you, we support you and we certainly have just a little bit of "Mama's Boy" in us to share with the rest of the world.
