heh
I never really thought that body hair made the man, though having come of age in the 70's, I enjoyed a good *head* of hair on a guy.
Removing the stuff is just a fashion like anything else. Plenty of manly men go under the razor or wax and retain their masculinity. I've seen enough nose and ear hair on guys that I probably could have lived without.
The Egyptians were into hairlessness, too. Are there any other cultures that were into hair removal? (No Brazilian jokes.)

Yes. They're known as the "Scrantonians." I don't know how I survive on my daily runs with all of the shirtless landscaper/roofer/construction eye candy surrounding me. We might not have all of the amenities people are looking for in NEPA, but damn do we ever have a nice "droolfest" going on from time to time! GRRROOOWWLLLL!!!

Girls.

100+ years ago and earlier, everyone was fine with hairy men. No one complained about it.

Why now?

Is it all part of the feminist movement to tell men to shave their body hair? **** that, lol

In all honesty I do prefer a furry guy. Nothing like nuzzling your nose in a nice patch of chest hair *sigh*

Each to his own but don't complain when your girl doesn't want to...you know...I'm just trying to help the men of the world out...its alot easier to see if you keep the hair trimmed, it LOOKS bigger and more impressive...and its easier to access...thats all I'm sayin.

Be careful not to do any permanent treatments. The trend might turn and it may become popular to be a "teddy bear" again.

Oh THAT...

fine, I don't mind trimming it down there for THAT purpose only

but my entire body? I like it the way it is and some girls think hairy men are sexy, and I'll go find myself one of those. Men don't always need help.

Yes, THAT! If I can go thru the trouble and short spats of pain to keep IT clean then my other half can find the time to keep his part neat and trim Makes IT sooooooo much more enjoyable for both.

As for OTHER body hair, I've dated guys that had lots of hair on their chest and back. My dh has some on both but not totally covered. I think the smooth look makes the guy look younger especially on the back.

My chest is mostly covered (as I'm mediterranean), but my back isn't all covered... weird, but that's just the way my body is.
