Hahaha....plucked chicken! Okay...yeah **composing myself**...I like the well-kept head and facial hair, if they're not shaved. Frankly, I've seen some people who look better without hair than with. It's the same with facial hair. It's amazing how you can see some people, who've had a beard/mustache for years, once they finally decide to shave...they look SO different. Many a time, I've said, "Wow, now I know why they've always had facial hair! They look so much better with it!" There have been a few instances where the opposite has been true.

My husband was one of those people. When I met him, he had a well-trimmed beard and mustache. It wasn't until we'd been together for quite some time, that he decided to shave. OMG! He was so HANDSOME under there and had dimples and everything. Holy cow! Turns out, he has extremely sensitive skin. As long as he's not going for the Duck Dynasty look, I'm just fine.

I don't mind a clean shaven face on a guy, but I do have an issue with this new trend of men completely de-hairing their chests, happy trails, and nether regions. Trimming those areas is alright, but totally removing it? Why? I feel like body hair is one of those things that makes a man a man.

I don't know. I'm positive that whomever the person was who started this "shaving the pubic area" fad was a pedophile.

Hair is continuous growing and does not shed.

Poodles have hair. German Shepherds have fur.

I don't know what kind of people you hang around with, but the ones that I am acquainted with have hair.
Is that so? So then human eyebrows and body hair are technically fur? Because those don't grow continuously.

I think it has more to do with being visually interesting for porn than with pedophilia.

Shaved heads make about 90% of the men who do it look creepy. Big buggy eyes and misshapen heads come to the fore. It is pertinent that many guys shave their heads because they simply have "bad hair." That's understandable. Having grown up in the days when long hair came in, and having a mixture of wavy and straight hair, if it wasn't for Dippity Do I'd a had to wear a hat. Men shaving body hair is fem - no argument possible there. It just is. Weird. I have some "unsavory" theories about this "down there" shaving, but will withold those details. This is a family oriented site. I'll leave it up to your imagination.

Visually interesting? Wow, that's strange. What is there to see? I mean really? Yikes.

No. "Back in the day", porn "stars" didn't shave/wax. This is all something new, started in the late 90s.

Which was pretty much when internet porn took off like gangbusters. Porn peddlers had to offer something new and different to attract eyeballs. What's newer and more different than no pesky hair in the way to block the view?
