I shave my arms, chest and abs. I'm a gym nut, and visible definition helps to keep me motivated. I've had mixed reactions from women, but most seem to like it.

This fad became popular after being mentioned on shows like "Sex In The City", "Will and Grace" and "***** Eye". Yes, GAY shows! Do women want their men to look like women? And of course, the salons had to jump on the band wagon, make men feel that they need to get laser hair removal, waxing, etc. How come no one ever compained about this before these shows came on? It;s bad enough women are made to feel ugly about there bodies, now men are the new victims. Enough America! And yes, this is an American thing. People in Europe have a good body image, and plenty of sexy hair. Does anyone remember sex symbols Sean Connery and Tom Selleck? Nuff said!

I wear a beard (not by choice), so shaving my body hair would be pointless, even riding a road bike.

I would never do that, not even for a woman. Is seems a lot of younger women have the "little boy" syndrome.

i shave my chest and abs and my upper thighs and my u know where hairs. the reason i started shaving was because i was made fun of for having chest hair. so i shaved my chest hair. this is when i was in high school. im in college now. none of them had chest hair at the time cuz they were young. later in highschool when they all started getting hair they had this new idea. they all kept saying that "girls think its sexy when guys shave" . that eventually led to shaving almost everything but my arm pit, arm and leg hair. now its just a habit and i have grown to not like body hair.

although the first time i shaved my chest it was just plain awful. it felt so awkward to put my shirt on and it itched so bad. i had ingrown hairs. but after a while it went away.

Waxing is the way to go to avoid bumps, itching, etc. Whatever area you want "hair-free" then get it waxed. Is it normal for guys to do this? Define normal. Some guys do - some don't. And it definitely is not only gay men that do it. All comes down to preference.
