I always feel sorry for guys with hairy backs.

At the beach, they look like rugs.

I hate body hair because it's nasty to feel it all sweaty against your shirt and shorts when you work out or are outside in the heat. It's gross. Body hair is yucky. I don't shave because I hate that stubbly feel. Waxing is too expensive and takes too much time. So I just use a clipper and clip my body hair about once every 2-3 weeks. I also make cute little designs in my private area..like little devil horns. They are bad-azz

I say shave it or wax it if you have a hairy back or hairy shoulders. It just looks so much better. And it helps if the guys keeps their pits trimmed too. I can't help but laugh, but I am serious.

Others have looked at me with an expression of confusion, "Why did you do that?", "I would never do that to myself." etc. It seems that women like it, and men react to it like it's wierd or unnatural. Some people even seem to think that only gay men shave thier bodies, however I am not gay.

Personally, I think it's much cleaner and better looking. It seems like women are more attracted to it too. I've also realized that when it's hot outside, having all that extra body hair just feels warm, sticky and nasty. I might just keep on shaving it.

So what is you alls opinion on this? It seems like there's a certain stigma in our society that "real men" don't do it. Thanks
I never had a lot of body hair. In fact, I don't remember being as hairy as I am NOW while in my 20's (talking about the chest and abs).

I do believe in shaving the backs of my hands and fingers, as I don't like to have the "gorilla" look.

I have a pet peev about guys who wax their chest clean but have stubble on their face or facial hair. What kind of sense does that make?

Default Why Not?

Body shaving, while requiring some maintenance (which can be fun when shared) has too many upsides to be ignored. Cleanliness being the first. I use to be be hairy, and because I love to workout, always seemed to be sweating and strangely enough always having body odor. Fortunately I met a woman who politely posed the question...what would happen if you got rid of "all that hair". I did and ever since, have no problems with BO and have discovered the joy of "smooth on smooth". Sure it takes another 10 minutes out my day but it is more than worth it. I love the way my boxers feel against my skin and to describe the desire I see in her eyes when she shaves me . is impossible. Did I mention that I am 55 and have been shaving for only 5 years... My grandmother used to say that youth is wasted on the young. Don't waste your yours...

Exclamation Examine thyself

Humankind for millenia has functioned proficiently irrespective of shaving.

body hair is okay with me. i especially hate it now that there seems to be a trend with college guys that shave their legs and wax the hair on their forarms. Creeps me out.
