I strongly agree. More power to ya.

I wish there was an icon for LMFAO, because if anything posted in this thread would warrant it, this is it. Surely you jest?

FWIW, men are notorious for their hang ups on women's physical appearance, and I personally know men who would end a relationship if their gf would gain five pounds or cut her hair shorter. I don't know any woman who would dump her man if he refused to shave his sac.

Just look at want ads on singles/dating sites. Women are far more likely to list intangible attributes (successful, self-confident, intelligent, caring), while men seem to think they are ordering a shirt from a catalog (at least C cup, dress size only between 00-4, specific hair/eye/skin coloring, mani/pedi, etc.).

If a woman has a preconcieved notion as to the level of hirsuteness she can tolerate in her man, I don't think that is even close to the kind of physical scrutiny most men put their potential SOs under.

Is it all part of the feminist movement to tell men to shave their body hair? **** that, lol
Fantastic question dear! Let me pose a question to you....100 years ago, men were just fine with furry legs, underarms and bikini areas on women. So why now? Is it all some part of the chauvanist movement to tell women to get rid of body hair? Lol!

As a guy, I have no problem if a girl has hair down there, slightly or excessivily. Its quite a shame that girls these days have the "little boy" syndrome for guys.

How about products like Nair for Men? Anyone ever try that, or similar?

Can't stand that.
I am thinking it might look odd to have a totally shaved back and a hairy chest, no?

Soap on front, shampoo on back.

Yeah, there is a type of electric shaver that shortens the beard to a uniform length. Why, I have no idea.

I'm more of a trimmer guy myself. I don't get down with shaving my body, but if it gets out of control a good trim will do the trick. The marketing company I work for is doing a cool promotion for the new Schick Titanium Trimmer. If you go to [url]www.trimflixx.com[/url], you can get a free razor just for making a funny video. The trimmer is good for cleaning up any unwanted body or facial hair.

Ditto. Hair on a man seems "masculine" to me.
