IMO waxing is the way to go. I started getting my eyebrows waxed (just to clean up the lines a bit) a few months ago, and enjoy the way it looks. I've been thinking about getting my back done, not that I have a carpet, but a few thin patches with longish hair (straight, not curly... strange) and it's just more annoying to me than really for vanities sake.

I don't really understand what the bit issue is with it supposedly hurting to wax. Maybe I'm just weird and like a little pain ;-)

I had shaved everything when I was back in high school and was on the swim team, from my head to my toes, and it was the weirdest feeling wearing jeans without the hair...

I personally think it's silly to see men with their legs shaved

^^^Agreed.
Or armpits, or anywhere really...Unless it's such a major problem that he looks like he's wearing a fur sweater vest. Then perhaps it's time to throw in the towel and wax the ol' back.

A lot of men at my gym shave their body hair and I think it looks odd. I suppose if a man is very hairy, it's better to shave or wax, but for most, it's not a good look. I make fun of my trainer when his legs are smoother than mine

I shave my underarms because I notice that without a huge mop of hair under there, my deodorant is able to apply itself better and directly to my skin, and I don't sweat as much as a result. I shave my chest, abs, and back because I'm working on toning myself up, and as another reply mentioned, hair hides muscle definition (I already have my 2-pack; wish my luck on that full 6-pack!) I don't shave my legs or arms though---it just looks too unnatural to me. As far as the "family jewels" are concerned, I usually keep them trimmed very close to my skin, but the other day I just decided out of sheer curiosity to shave it off completely. This was the worst mistake I've ever made in my life! My skin down there is now all irritated, itchy, and stubbly as the hair is starting to grow back, and I find myself practically gritting my teeth to avoid scratching in public now.

In the future, I may turn to waxing and/or the laser for easier hair removal. I happen to like the look of my mid-section with definition and no hair, but it does make me look asymmetric with my very hairy calves and arms attached to a hairless torso.

In any event, I need to figure out a better long-term solution soon, as I'm courting a new prospective mate who isn't into any body hair at all. With all of the gifted scientific researchers we have out there who have already determined ways to replace lost hair long-term, why can't they develop a method to likewise remove hair long-term? I'd be willing to pay upwards of $1,000 for such a treatment if and when it were to become available!

I think a hairy chest looks kinda gross. I prefer the shaved chest look! Much sexier!

I like a guy who is clean and 'trimmed up' (everywhere). A hairy back, shoulders, ears or neck is a huge turn off!!! I like a man to have hair on his legs, otherwise I feel like he is a pre-pubescent little boy. Chest hair is great as long as the hairs don't tickle my nose when I have my head on his chest. Can't stand that.

Personally there's nothing sexier than a man with chest hair. I like a man to be natural. I can take trimming but not removing. A man that shaves his body is annoying to me.
