ROTFL. Yes they do. That's why competitive bicycle racers shave (don't listen to the stuff about road burn; it's true but it's secondary), to show off the muscles in the legs.

I actually prefer men with body hair. I pretty much made my boyfriend grow a mustache and beard. He actually quite likes it now, keeps him warm in the winter

As for body hair in general, whatever floats your boat. I'd say many people tend to keep up appearances more when they are dating or seeking out a boy/girlfriend and then when they finally are with someone, tend to let go a little bit lol.

Ive been married for 8 years and there hasnt been a week that has gone by where I havent shaved. I cant stand chest hair, long arm hair (not completely shaved but trimmed), and untrimmed lower regions. Once a week is about the max I can go...once the hair starts growing it almost makes me feel dirty. I like to be smooth and I feel better about myself. Dont like to let myself go. PLus my wife prefers when I am smooth so thats just one more reason.

If I ever went gay I'd probably be a smooth twink...I guess maybe I'm showing my own bias, I admit I prefer women smooth, maybe women are used to men being hairier too...but I wouldn't say no to a beautiful women who was natural either.
1. Dont date a hairy guy youre not attracted to.
2. #1. Precludes the problem of asking your partner to shave.
3. Women with leg hair? Blech.

I think some guys look very masculine with chest hair, others, like me who have very little, seems useless. It is up to the guy how to groom himself; others , who cares? I personally trim what little I have on my chest and pubes but shave the sack, just my preference.

Big difference

Girls don't like male hair
Women like male hair


Why would a woman want to be held and lay with a copy of themselves? Beauty & the Beast people. My lovers always remarked about "liking that [this shirt/sweater] smells like you".

Unless you are a fat slob or have a sweating problem that you should have checked out at the doctors. Using body wash, applying deodorant and small amount of cologne in romantic setting is the way to go.

Some of you guys are nuts. If some hot chick told you to start wearing bras, you'd do it. Have some self respect. I understand trimming so her mouth doesn't fill up with hair but laying down/bending over in the shower to shave your body is gotta feel degrading. You seriously care that much about what other chicks think?

Pornography. The amount of females that watch porn has sky rocketed. Cultural myths have started to be formed by pornography taboos like: Interracial sex, anal sex, bisexual sex, etc.

Hubby has a good bit of NA in his blood, so he naturally has less body hair, I do wax his biceps/shoulder area (he gets these weird spriggy hairs that grow willy nilly at random, lol), and I wax his "flanks" on his back. He has a handful of chest hairs so no worries there.

He trims the nether regions and that's about it.

Sam Elliot is a VERY sexy man; from the neck up anyway. I don't like the body hair thing.

Since when? I shave from the hip crease down on my legs, and trim the nether regions, and shave the crease so the hair doesn't show in bikinis or anything like that.

I disagree and am insulted by that assumption.

I am very much a woman thanks, and excessive body hair is NOT attractive to me, and never has been.

Hair or no hair is a preference, no different than blue eyes vs brown, or long hair vs short.

Generally, I'd only want them to remove excess back hair.
Also, I think it's unfair that society expects women to remove armpit hair, but not men. I wish men would remove their armpit hair too.
What hair I had on chest and pubes started coming in Gray and white. That was another reason for me to trim it down or shave it. If it were still dark, that would be different.

Um most women prefer
- Hair
- Blue eyes
- Short hair


No one said excessive hair but a grown man looking like an adolescent boy is sad.
