Twas me! Men, please leave chest and leg hair intact. Maybe try out a little stubble on that manly jaw of yours. And keep downstairs trimmed, but not bare (that looks weird).

These are my humble requests, you manly men, you

Forearm hair too. Very sexy. Shaved men look creepy to me.

Men shaving body hair?

WOW.

Let's post photos of men's shaven/unshaven half-naked bodies. This thread sucks.

Hum.. I'll pass.

I'm not going to take a razor to my legs or chest in order to look younger. Do these men get pedicures and dye their hair as well? Anyhow, if people don't like my body hair, don't look. Speaking of hair, I need a hair cut...

I personally like this hairless look myself.

I think it makes men look more youthful, and shows greater muscle definition.

I don't think the shaven body look is good for all men, but for those who work hard at developing muscular bodies.

How many men here who regularly exercise and lift weights also shave their body hair?

Do you women prefer men with hairy bodies, or do you prefer the look of a hairless muscular chest?
First and foremost, it's unnatural. That said, I think a boyfriend without hair would make me wonder if I was even dating a man. But too much hair can be unattractive too, but that depends; some women like a lot of hair on men.

I'm with you...well I don't need a hair cut right this minute though but other than that I agree.

There's nothing sexier for me than a man with blonde hair on his arms and legs AND a hairy chest. I find men who shave all their body hair not nearly as attractive, it looks unnatural to me unless they just have sparse body hair naturally.

Andre Agassi was the first pro athlete I remember shaving everything and I never found him remotely attractive thereafter.

And I totally disagree that men shaving body hair makes them look younger. I see no corrolation at all. Sean Connery is about the most hairy man you could ever get, he's 80 and looks fabulous and younger than his years.
