Male hairy body image - October 29th 2019, 05:01 AM

Guys, please donít laugh, but Iím embarrassed by my body hair. Iím 16 but pretty well ahead of my classmates in the hair department. My pit hair is really thick, I donít have a lot of hair on my chest, but it shows if I undo a button, and Iíve got a thick happy trail from my dick up to my belly button. I know it shouldnít embarrass me, but it does. But at the same time I donít want to look like a dork and button my shirt all the way up or never take my shirt off. I just wish my classmates would catch up so I donít feel as self conscious as I do. I feel dumb saying this.

I'm sorry you haven't gotten a reply yet. The fact of the matter is that body hair is different for everyone. Some people are just naturally hairier than others, and people go through puberty at different rates so body hair grows in at different times for everyone. Your classmates may catch up to you, or you may just be a little hairier than the average person.

Body hair is natural and okay, but if it makes you uncomfortable I would suggest doing something to manage your appearance and discomfort. You don't have to keep your shirt buttoned to the top all the time; it's not practical to be physically uncomfortable. However, you could perhaps invest in clippers and trim the tops of the hair a bit. It's not as drastic as shaving or waxing so you'll still have some hair if you want it. If you do want to shave or wax, that's perfectly fine, too. It's your body hair and you get to decide what you do to be comfortable with it.

Feel free to PM me if you need anything else.

In the hazy milk of twilight
No one had to know

Heathen, thanks for your response. Thinning it is a great idea! I was thinking along the lines of an either/or choice of keeping it or getting rid of it, both of which were really embarrassing. But I could use those thinning shears like barbers use to trim it. I was (am) afraid of being made fun of for just getting rid of it.
