What a weird thread. Why would a guy want it to be socially acceptable or the norm for him to shave his armpits and legs? As far as downstairs goes, going completely hairless is not worth the work or irritation. A trim every two weeks is sufficient and prevents "shedding". Who wants to have pubic hairs all over their bathroom floor?

Everything else is a non issue as I'm not genetically prone to hair growth on my chest or back.

Trimming is good but I am sick of obsessing about my own body hair and figure that pushing men to remove theirs just makes it worse for the rest of us. I figure in the next five years there will be some new trend for women to wax their ear lobes because a tiny bit of peach fuzz is seen as dirty and unfeminine.

I really don't care what other women think, if my woman likes that I shave, that is all it matters...

Don't wax it, ladies. Let us masculine men nibble it right off your pretty little lobes.

If it's so trivial, why are you so obsessed with it?

I'm all about trimming. On certain guys, the bald look (all over) is very appealing..

I think it is a little odd for men who are not specific types of athletes (runners, swimmers, bikers) or these days a model to be bare.

When I first met my husband he was 18 and his body hair (chest, stomach, etc) was sparse. I cannot pinpoint exactly when his hair 'grew' in but by his late 20's he certainly had more body hair. He is now in his late 40's and is pretty fuzzy (he does trim his pubic area).

I think that it is beautiful that we have aged together and I have loved him since he was a boy and is now a man. His body hair is a part of his manliness (he was a Soldier for 23 years) that his is not bare like a young man.

But then again I like 'corn fed' type men and others like thin men with eyeliner (???). I think it is just a matter of personal taste and as long as we get to choose our partner then it is all good.
