I have never known a man that shaved his pits. And so for that reason, it's an odd concept to me!

i shave, and my dh doesnt. i know that some runners, cyclists, and other athletes DO shave their legs and underarms, etc. i mean, if i were in love with someone who did shave, i guess it wouldn't be a deal braker.

I like a guy with the hair, it's more attractive to me - and draws me to him more. Of course, he doesn't need to be sasquatch - that's a turnoff, but I'm not big on shaven men, either.

Oh common, you know you love to comb and brush a man's back. heck, if it gets thick and long enough you could make some braids. Even better, you could do a perm. His back would look like a continuation of his pubic hair. Or you could slather on some gel and make them spike outward like a porkypine. If he's got enough hair you could use what's left of the gel to make a tail coming off his backside.

Served with a guy who was so hairy he had to shave where his T-shirt collar started. He went home on two weeks leave and vowed to not shave the entire time he was on leave. He returned to the ship with a full beard and mustach. When he took off his shirt we saw that his beard fully blended in with his chest fur coat. Even had one guy who had to shave the top of his nose.

I run the clippers over mine about once a month. Saves about half on the use of deodorant and dries almost immediately that way.

I tried it before when I got into the workout habit. However, it just got a rash, itched and felt generally strange. It did nothing to stop sweating or needing less deodorant. So I let them grow back and never tried that nonsense again. Since I have nobody to impress the whole thing was pointless.

I've never been all that into guys that shave their body. Not really that I have a problem with it so much as I'm not really into guys that spend more time grooming than I do. And guys that shave their body hair are usually those kinds of guys.

On the other hand, I dated a competitive swimmer once. I thought the whole totally shaved body thing would be weird, but his skin was so soft . . . .

I think it has to be kept in check or gone. I do not think its really odd in any way at all. Anyone I knew that shaved pits also lifted like crazy so I was not really looking at the pits....LOL

The one thing that is really nice about a guy that grooms...He understands when you want to skip it yourself and does not leave his man shakelings all over the bathroom. I never knew how much shedding hairy men did...Its freaking gross! LOL
The guys in my family growing up did not have crazy hair and these man sheddings....I have only shared bathrooms with blondes...and then one day I dated a brunette...yes it was a factor in the dumping...man shedding

Get a dustpan boys!
