yeah, that's what I thought.

I think it depends on the man and how he looks with a beard. Some men look really good while some men don't.

I do not find the long, unkempt, bushy looking, food hiding, musty smelling beards attractive AT ALL. Keep it neat and clean!

Those nasty unkempt beards with stuff hiding in them are totally disgusting. I prefer men to be clean shaven.

Help me understand.

You're assuming that all men have access to water and will shower every day based on your own personal high standards of living and the luxury conveniences that you're accustomed to taking advantage of where you live.

But not all men shower every day. Some can't be bothered, some don't have easy access to the resource. As a matter of fact some men can't ever shower at all and must clean themselves in other ways that don't require an abundance or wastage of water because they don't ever have ready access to water and must conserve what they have strictly for consumption.

Even if a man did have the luxury of showering every day, if he has external parasites in his beard or other body hair the parasites and their eggs won't wash out in the shower because they are attached very tightly to the skin or the hair. They have to be treated with specialized medications or insecticides to kill them and their eggs first, and some kinds of parasites have to be detached and picked out by hand one by one and/or combed out with specially designed tools - like sharp needle tipped tweezers and nit combs just for example.

I like the stubble or shadow too..............that's more manly on a guy than a beard. Beards IMO seem kinda disgusting & unclean...........

My fiance is much more handsome without a beard........

women had no thoughts about stubble?

they can't like all beards. it has to be a groomed beard.

but some of the women in the study had a "disgust of sex".

Ah, the studies...

Studies, studies, studies.

I acknowledge studies and I just be who I am and be the best of who I am.

I mean, I could've sworn that there was at least one study that suggested the opposite. I kept the beard with that study.
