Dan, it actually is possible for men to get cellulite. Cellulite is the herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue that manifests visibly as dips or lumps in the skin, specifically in the pelvic region.

Cellulite is recorded in 80-90% of females, yet it is rarely seen in males. It is more common in males with androgen-deficient states, such as Klinefelter's Syndrome, hypogonadism, postcastration states and in those patients receiving estrogen therapy for prostate cancer. The cellulite becomes more severe as the androgen deficiency worsens in these males

So, it is definitely possible for males to have it. It's simply more rare.
