Hairy Men are Gorgeous!

Why are hairy men villified?

Humans are covered with hair, even the most fair-haired, pixie-like person has body hair unless they are suffering from a medical condition. Androgenic hair (hair that appears post-puberty) is due to the male hormones present in both men and women. Men have more of these hormones (yes, really) so are generally hairier.

So one could assume then, that the hairier the bloke, the more 'manly' he is. Which makes you wonder why so many men prefer to remove their body hair.

You're a woman, right? How do you feel about hairy men? Do you purr or do you run?

You're not a woman; you ARE a hairy bloke? Are you proud of your mat? Do you hate it? Do you do all you can to get rid of the lovely, curly stuff? Join in the debate below and share your opinion... let us know how you deal with HAIRY MEN!

Hairy backs

Men with hairy shoulders and backs seem to engender a wide range of reactions among the fair sex. Some women hate them while others love and cherish them.There doesn't seem to be a happy middle. Definitely an either or. In the UK, we call that the 'Marmite' effect, i.e. you either love it or you hate it with a vengeance.

Those who profess to delight in a hairy chest are unable to accord the same affection to a hairy back. Why is this? It's the same thing, right?

People need to understand... if a man has a hairy back, doesn't mean he is untouchable. Try it.

Furry fronts

A few years ago, a moderately hairy chest was all the rage. I remember being very proud of the fact that I had a boyfriend with at least three hairs on his chest. These days it seems that more and more men prefer the hairless look.

I can't say that I like it - I think I prefer a hairy chest on a man. What do you think?

Who likes a hairy chest? Cameron Diaz does:

(She) admits there is nothing sexier than a hairy chest.

She said: "I love chest hair. Mmm-hmm. I'm not saying I want a huge amount, but the right amount is very sexy! I don't like the smooth, hairless body."

Have YOU ever shaved a fella? - Was it fun?

Did you do it willingly? Or was it under duress, making sure you kept your mouth closed? Is it a regular event? You don't have to be a HubPages member to share your shaving secrets!

I could do the shaving thing... but he'd better never, ever ask me to clip his toenails!

Yes! And it was the start of a new fun sport for me!

      I love the hair that God gives you. Especially the "Tresure Trail"". I love a man that has a hairy chest and a slim bod. I love to cuddle into a hairy chest, armpit and arms with warmth.

        My man has a thick pelt on his chest and stomach, and a light dusting on his shoulders and back. Maybe my opinion would be different if I was married to a smooth chested guy but I think hair makes a man look manly. My husband had a full chest of hair by the time he was 17 and all the guys at school thought it was cool. But then as he hit his mid 20's and the hair spread to his back, people made comments. I like the body hair and admire the men who go shirtless and flaunt it. My man still seems to keep his shirt on when he's in the public eye because he can't stand the stupid shallow comments. But to all you MEN out there, take off that shirt and let the fur wave in the wind. Hairy is sexy. Especially when you have enough to go around for two or three people. Now he does have me shave or wax his back when we go on a cruise or to a water park but if it makes him happy, I'm glad to help out.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Don't shave, guys! Celebrate your manhood! Hairless men are not masculine nor sexy. Men are supposed to have hair...it adds to their masculinity. MIddle Eastern men, Indians, Italians usually have plenty of hair on their chest and legs, sometimes butt and back. That's just fine! Do NOT worry about it. If I girl doesn't like YOU because of your hair, she isn't worth spending time with. Now if it really bothers YOU, then shave or get laser treatment. Otherwise, be a man and be REAL.

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        No, I'd never shave my man, NEVER! I won't even touch a man who has a bare chest or body, not a chance. In fact it seems as I get older I'm getting more out with my hair fetish and both my last and my current man could be categorized as bears. When they would take off their shirts my heart would pound! I love hairy arms, hairy legs, hairy backs, hairy necks, beards, you name it, I want it! Bring it here baby!

        i have been very hairy all over since i was 12 years old i am 51 years old now and have never shaved my body i only shave my head

      Hairy legs.... or not?

      C'mon, everyone prefers their man to have hairy legs, don't they? A guy looks silly with smooth legs.... or does he? I've been paying close attention to the legs (male ones) on show at Wimbledon this year, and noticed that several players have shaved their legs (thank you BBC HD). Jo-Wilfred Tsonga is one of them... and I have to say that his legs are very attractive.

      What d'you think?

          I am Asian. My torso is a rug. You can hardly see my relatively fair skin. All the women I have been with (except one lady) absolutely adored it. I enjoyed superstar status at college owing to a huge torso and top 2 buttons undone.

          I've seen better. My man has similar hair but it looks ten times better on him. <3 My girl friends who really dislike hair even think he looks attractive with hair on his chest. Hairy men are in, from what I've heard. :P Manly men only.

            I think this man would look a hundred times sexier if he waxed! I just can't stand all that hair! It takes away from the rest of the man, I think. My mom on the other hand... Well that is an entirely different story... :)

            Hair or not doesn't mean you a man or not. Everyone has a choice and it is his body. So if a hairy man shave he is bond to find a woman that will like it and same if he doesn't shave. I personally find the hairy look disgusting.

            I'm really not a fan of hairy guys . . . but I don't think I'd be into a guy who shaves, either. Fortunately, I found myself a Latino guy . . . they tend not to have much body hair! :D

          • anonymous 7 years ago

            A bit of hair is manly but if it looks like he's wearing a sweater ... see ya later. I'm not about to start shaving a guy's body though.

          Beards are something else, I suppose, though it seems that the hairier the guy the more likely he is to have a beard, or at least, a good face-carpet of stubble.

          Did you know November is National Beard Month?

          Facial hair has long been associated with manliness... in the eyes of men anyway. What do you think? Are beardies cool and sexy or scruffy and unkempt? Are beards the epitome of rugged individualism or merely disgusting face fungus full of cake crumbs (and worse)?

              Let it go and let it grow. Waxing is like shaving for me. it takes too much effort to mow what is natural for me. If someone doesn't like me because of my hair then maybe (omg its not a bash) they're a little too shallow for my taste and/or not worth my time to try to know if they're not going to give me the same effort in the friendship/relationship.

              The more hair on a guy the more aroused i get.

              It's weird i know but i can't help it.

              My wife would have a fit if she ever found out.

              When i was younger and even still to this day i feel like the odd one out when i'm shirtless around my buddies.

              I would do almost anything to be hairy.

              Why defy nature? I think if a man is super duper hairy, he should leave the fur alone! If a man doesn't have much hair on his body, who cares? Everyone is made differently and for a reason. Some nationalities are just hairier than others. Asians and Native Americans do not have much body hair, but other nationalities have a lot of body hair. Our society is too vain, and it seems to be influenced more and more by the film and fashion industries. Who gives a flip what the latest trends are when it comes to your own body?? Be proud of your nationality, be proud of your genes, and stop waxing! ;-) Waxing hurts, and you could have a severe allergic reaction to the wax like I did when I had my eyebrows waxed once. The wax was bees wax, which I am very allergic to, and half my face was red, VERY swollen and itched like mad!!

              I'm into hairy chests! And I would honestly prefer a hairy man to a man who waxes himself. On the other hand, if a man is naturally hairless (like my boyfriend), that's fine with me as well.

              I love it! I have to admit I do prefer hairy men to shaved plucked men. I remember once I was having a birthday dinner at my house and us girls were discussing this very subject! I was going on ad nauseum ad infinitum about how man had to have a hairy chest - I was totally oblivious to the wide eyed glaring warning stare from my sister telling me to shut up, or the uncomfortable silence from her best friend sat beside her. Finally when I finished, I got it - the best friend was married to a man with alopecia universalis! Oooops....great lens!

Everything about them is sexy, and wonderful, and that includes hairiness. I love my hairy man. It's the guy inside that makes him beautiful on the outside.

And SOMETIMES I wish the hair on my front side would migrate to the top of my head! (That I do shave regularly. I've never found my bald spot sexy). This lens does justice to hairy men like me.

              I'm an original red head (now a kinda sandy blond) with very little to none body hair. I was born completely hairless, not even eyelashes. My Dad said I scared the hell out of him with my pale skinned hairlessness, I'm pretty sure he thought I was an alien or something worse. I did eventaually grow some hair...heaps on my head but nothing much to brag about elsewhere. So, I'm a bit fascinated by hair on other people...I say 'hairy men' bring em on!

              Men with chest-hair are just more manly and great to look at.

              I don't think any man who is lucky enough to have a goodly amount of chest hair should ever think of shaving it off. Never, Never!!

              I think a completely hairless man would look odd and pretty feminine too. I can't imagine discussing the annoyances of how fast shaved hair grows back with my man and having him be smoother than me when I can't be bothered! Having said that, hairy backs are a big no-no in my books.

              I like hairy to a point. Generally if he needs to be brushed like a dog, he's way passed that point. Definitely yes to the hairy legs though. Totally fun lens. :)

              I just have enough body hair that is why I need not shave. Besides, my wife doesn't mind, so why bother? I like this lens and the comments posted by the ladies. It's good to know what women think. 5*

              I can't stand hairy men. Shudders at the thought. Weird though because I have a child by a hairy man :P Every time a man groomer commercial comes on the radio I giggle.

              Funny idea for a lens ... I prefer not a lot of hair on my man, but it's really what's in his heart and head that I care about most.

              My guy doesn't have much hair on the top of his head so it is kind of nice to have it on the rest of him.

              This lens definitely got my attention. I have to admit when I was younger I liked hairy men, but now I seem to prefer the more streamlined look of the hairless body ..... it must be the aerodynamics. Every spring my hairy beast, cutie, husband has me shave his back.

              Hairy men. Woohoo! Must confess, though, that I don't like either of those legs. Tom Jones has just the right amount -- from your pix here. :D

              Ha ha you just made my day. Great fun lens. I'm with you, hairy men are definitely more manly somehow. So long as it's not too much and their arms don't reach down to their knees.

              The thing that strikes me about these photos is how rare it is these days to see photos of hairy men!

              Personally I think the most attractive thing is that men look natural. There is nothing more off putting than a man who spends more time on his appearance than his wife!

              Ugh! No, I don't like hairy backs personally. Having said that I think your photo of the hairy man is quite nice! I don't like the tattoo's at all though........put's me off.

              Anyway, I think we are being rather shallow looking at the appearance of a man's body, it is the size of his wallet that is most important!!!

              Brilliant lens Bev, you made my day. 5*

              Well... they've been talking about US as objects for quite some time now :-) My pet hate is "the wife". It makes me cringe. It's time they realised their place.... kidding. No I'm not.

              Hilarious - ! Have you noticed the way women talk about their men - hairy or otherwise - as a sort of 'object' ...MY hairy Italian...which bears out my pet theory that men go in and out of fashion, like crocodile handbags... hairy men are fashionable one year but not the next. Depends where the hair is, though and the same goes for women - hair is nice on da head but not in da armpits. I also think it's the attitude that counts for a lot - men who have hairy bodies who shave it all off spend too much time thinking about their appearance and I prefer couldn't care less types - clean should be their only concern really - two hours in front of the mirror is more woman than man.

              There's something really wrong with smooth legs on a man. Both of my brothers refused to be seen in shorts until they were over 30 (when some hair finally arrived)

              Well, maybe when I stop laughing I can think of something to write. I think if my husband suggested shaving any part of himself, I would probably freak! I love every little hair on his body.

              I recently read that because women are on the pill, manly man are less appreciated these days than before. Only when we're fertile do we, apparently, want a hairy masculine man. great lens btw. blessed by a squidangel.
