Back hair on a guy is sexy ?

To each their own but I think a lot of people don't do it for others.. they do it for whatever reason they have. For me I feel cleaner, pure and simple.
Can't believe there are so many pages of replies for this subject..

FWIW I don't shave my nether regions either, just my legs and pits.

I'm 36, he's 37.
So no cutting nails, no popping zits, no plucking out unibrow, no shaving (period), no cutting of hair, no circumcision, etc.

IMO, ladies should trim that area. It makes it easier to dine. I always trim so the ladies don't have any issues.

My husband has told me repeatedly he prefers to dine in the forest, not the desert. So that works for us.

Regardless, I'm ultimately a "to each his own" person...I just get annoyed at the virtual gasps that result when I say I don't shave. Well I do some bikini cleanup as needed (admittedly usually just in summer), but I leave the "triangle" intact.

Don't misunderstand - I'm not against some grooming. I just don't see a reason to remove all or even most of the hair, just that which sticks out where others can see it.

Well, for what it's worth, I've got to say...there's something erotic about a good old fashioned "bush" if you will. I think the relative rarity of it is why it's hot.

That's my $0.02.

I regularly get everything below the waist waxed. My chest is naturally smooth as are my arms so I don't worry about those. I do it because I like how clean it looks not to mention how nice it feels. My current GF doesn't care either way which is fine with me because I do it for myself although my ex used to LOVE the smooth feeling and the look. Used to shave but a friend talked me into trying waxing and I have enjoyed it ever since.

You get your johnson waxed? That sounds terrible

I really thought we were talking about the genital region.....

My husband offered to get that whole area waxed in a show of solidarity to my brazillians (no lie, they hurt. ), BUT no regular salon will do men. I found that surprising.

Yeah I had to find a gal that does wax from her home (she is licensed) since most salons will not wax men at all. I would actually prefer to do this at someplace private like a home rather than a salon where I tend to feel more exposed. I do agree that getting your private area tends to hurt a bit especially the first couple of times but the hair free feeling for the next 6 weeks makes it worth it. Feels much cooler down there in the summer time for sure.

Nice! It does feel nice.... after the initial pain.
