Hairy Men or Smooth Shaven
Manly Men from my younger days
Body hair jealousy?
Probably men who are unable to grow hair are a bit jealous of those can do so easily. I have also realized that genes and culture have a lot to do with the amount of hair on a man. It’s a shame women force their men to undergo desperate means to rid them of what nature gave them to prove their manhood.
Hairy or not - that is the question!
Someone the other day made a comment about guys with facial hair and several women chimed in their disapproval of stubble, beards and basically most body hair. I was surprised. I indicated that I do not prefer men with mustaches and beards, but male natural-grown body hair didn’t bother me. I stood alone in my opinion!
In our days, it seems we preferred men that looked like men. They had strong jaws and their testosterone was obvious by the amount of hair they had on their chest and face. It seems to be a common preference among girls and women today that they want their men to spend time and money to keep all the hair off.
Some women prefer feminized men. What is that about? Why do women prefer buff, waxed and fairly pretty men, and require them to be militant in their grooming habits? Maybe they prefer hairless men that haven’t passed puberty yet.
Heartthrobs of yesteryear had a steely countenance, a proliferation of chest and body hair, including mustaches and hairy chests. Seems girls nowadays prefer “beautiful men”. Maybe men today just can’t “hold” a mustache like our men did in the olden days! I see that they wax all the hair off the models nowadays, even their armpits!! Can’t anything be “natural” any more?
My personal feeling is that just as long as your man treats you with respect, the amount of hair and his appearance isn't all that important. I can see if they're sloppy and smell funny, but if they clean up well that’s fine. I guess I just like a “manly man”, as long as he’s not as hairy as an ape!
I discovered that Hairy men is a group on Facebook, so I guess there are still some out there that don’t mind the fuzz.
I guess the hit Twilight caused a competition. Some women prefer the feminine male look like Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and others like the hairy werewolf, Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner). Edward is eternally 17, not quite mature, while Jacob has definitely come of age. Okay, I admit I got caught up in the mania of “Twilight” also and personally prefer Jacob to Edward. But that is just me.
Women these days allow their men to just be natural and sport the maleness they were blessed with. It evolved pretty quickly and it has become normal again to be hairy.
