Just watch any sort of reality show like Survivor and compare the guys in their 20s and 30s to the older men and you'll see. Similarly, many women in these age groups view a large amount of body hair as unattractive, and more and more women are expecting "smooth".
That's the ever-present influence of homosexual culture, especially among women.

Each to their own I guess, but in my case, I can't even be bothered to shave my face half the time. It sounds like a lot of unnecessary hassle to me.

Mammoth and proud.

Oh yeah? I'd like to see some empirical studies on that, because I don't necessarily believe this statement.

And no, I'm not going to look it up myself. You make a statement, better be ready to back it up.

The shaven body fetish started in the gay community, and from there it spread to the mainstream through fashion, photography, etc. What kind of proof do you require?

I've been grooming and trimming for over 25 years now, long before it became trendy and fashionable. It was a personal hygiene choice and had nothing to do with sexuality. I was not then, and nor am I now gay. Not sure where you get this stuff, but not everything you disagree with is a homosexual conspiracy.

Well, according to him--fashion and photography bridged the gap between homosexuality and social norm. A misconception at best.

I never said men who shave their bodies are homosexuals. Defensive much?

Where did I say I thought such a thing?

I feel more like a man with my chest, leg, arm hairs. Forget shaving any of those areas!

From the other guys, one of the most hilarious movies ever:

Arnold Palmer: Just becoz I have a beard, you think I'm hairy inside all over (uses his hand to show). Nope. Shaved! (imitates razor shaving with his hand)
Terry: Aaaaalllen!

LMAO
