Man Scape; Do Women Like Hairy Men?
A question for the ages, to be sure. Do the ladies lust over a hairy dude or Mr. Smooth?
It's important to note that men come in varying degrees of hairyness - from "Cousin It" to "Uncle Fester." Some fellas have thick, dark hair curling out of every orifice, weaving together across the entire surface of the skin so that only the palms, bottom of the feet, and certain portions of the face are naturally hairless.
On others, it grows in patches - a map of fuzzy continents and pensulas across their bodies
Others still are smooth for the most part, sleek and unadorned. Some are naturally that way, others not so much.
In any case, I believe that men are just great be they hairy, smooth, and anywhere in between but I do have a little discomfort with men who shave their chests.
Okay, if you are streamlining for athletic reasons, whatever. Maybe I'm just not progressive enough, but I cannot find anything pleasing about the thought of a man shaving his chest. It's a little "metro" for me.
Some women, though, really have a strong preference for one or the other. I know a woman who swoons over that little patch of hair that 70's TV studs always showed at the top of their partially unbuttoned shirts. Another proclaims that male body hair is "gross."
I imagine that it's like bosoms with guys in some respects. They may have a preference as to whether they like them a certain size or shape, but its doubtful that they'd actually reject a woman based on this criteria.
I think that men, like women, have unfair physical ideals being presented to them constantly by the media. They feel insecure about their bodies, too. We should all go a little easier on each other and while its not a crime to admire a nice physique, the part of the chest we should be focusing on is underneath all that hair anyway!
