How much hair is too much hair? - August 7th 2010, 08:48 PM

I'm not talking pubes, I'm talking body hair. All kinds.

Okay, so I'm a little guy, but I'm a hairy guy. It makes me wonder what girls think of body hair on guys.

So I want to hear what girls think of guys with lots of hair, or rather, hair in lots of places. Is it weird when guys shave places that aren't their face? I've never actually heard girls talk about this...

(Oh, and personally, body hair on girls doesn't bother me... As long as it's not so much that it's rivaling mine... Ahaha. I'm a bit of a hippie.)

Oh, and if you're a hairy guy like myself and have more relationship experience than me (which means, if you have any relationship experience at all.) feel free to chime in with your experiences or whatever.

my legs are pretty hairy, and i used to keep my hair long. Only thing that I shave is my face.
Relationship experience, well, none of my girlfriends have minded me being hairy. then again, if they did, i doubt we would have been in a relationship :P

I don't care how much hair a guy has got, but i would find it very weird if he did anything to remove it. It would seem vain and fussy to me. Plus if you do start removing it then you have stubble and its a whole big mess. If i found out that a guy i fancied waxed or shaved his body hair it would really put me off, its just a bit creepy. Of course this is massively hypocritical since i take great pains to remove my own hair...

I don't like kissing someone with hair on their face. When my boyfriend went to camp for two weeks he grew a small beard and I was annoyed. Lol.
I don't mind pubic hair, as long as it isn't wild. Just nicely trimmed please!
In swim when it comes to major competitions, not just lame school ones, I understand if my guy shaves a lot of his hair off, because it can knock seconds off your time, which makes a difference.
Other than that, I want my guy to have hair on his body, or else I feel like I'm dating an eight year old.

Re: How much hair is too much hair? - August 8th 2010, 12:22 AM

I dont mind : Hairly legs, or underarms (thats natural too me) and a little stubble on their face i dont mind either, as long as it doesnt get out of hand. I dont mind a hairy belly (on a little though) and pubes dont mind but have to be trimed (so dont get caught in mouth during oral EWWW)

I do mind : Very long pubes and chest hair, those i cannot stand.

Hairy is a genetic trait for more manly.

I'm proud of my Persian hairy side

I don't mind, really. I mean, there are some guys that are extremely hairy to the point of it being tooooo much; I met a guy that, no joke, had more visible hair then skin. But, for the most part I like a guy with hair.

My boyfriend is like a monkey!! He has a hairy chest and really hairy legs. But I don't mind. I sometimes think it is a bit too much, but overall I'm not bothered, even though he's the first person I've dated with chest hair. Like someone said earlier, it seems a bit more manly.

Sometimes it's better to forget how you feel
and remember what you deserve

Yeah I agree. I really like guys that have more body hair than normal (fetish?) lol. but since i'm pretty tall if a guy isn't that much taller than me i like them to have a lot of body hair cause then I don't feel like I'm dating a child. You know what i mean?

Most girls seem to either not find it a negative or think of it as a positive (within reason). And it depends on location too -- leg, arm, and armpit hair are acceptable to everyone (even within the college-age LGBT community), chest hair and facial hair are debatable, and back, nose, ear hair, etc. is regarded as undesirable by most everyone. I personally can't stand body hair on myself, so I shave most of it, but it's entirely your choice and probably not worth the hassle to get rid of.

Re: How much hair is too much hair? - August 9th 2010, 10:12 AM

mmmm...My husband is Italian and being hairy comes right along with that. And i LOVE it. He used to shave his chest when we first started dating and I hated it! When it would start to grow back it would poke me through his shirt, and god forbid him actually take his shirt off and try coming near me. I swear it felt like needles jabbing through my skin. So i told him to stop shaving. I don't see the big deal with body hair, It's natural and obviously it's supposed to be there lol. I shave certain area's on myself, and he keeps certain area's trimmed up for me..But as for body hair I think it's sexy.

And the only reason men have to question this is because all those "fake" models wax their chests, legs and arms. It makes typical men think that's all women are attracted to. Ugh! It's so annoying to turn on the tv or flip through a magazine and see all these people looking "perfect". Like the average person has time to do that..well or the money to stay groomed so well. lol

I say be natural, or at least secure about your body hair, and the right girl will not have any problems with it.

I don't like chest hair but I don't mind it either; but I hateeee back hair.
I love when my boyfriend shaves his chest

As for guys shaving their legs/arms, I don't think it should be done unless for a physical sport or something. Like, at my old school, guys were known to shave their legs if they were on the swim team so they wouldn't have a bunch of wet leg hairs weighing them down.

Two is better than one.
