Manscaping more popular than ever

Unread postby Spacekitty » 11 September 2019, 12:59

I've interestingly noticed manscaping is getting more and more popular of late. Or at least in my country. Seeing a straight dude with no pubes or cut really short in a change room is nothing strange anymore. A few years ago seeing a guy in summer with shaved legs was something that stood out and people would take note. Now it's nothing strange. I suppose it's all a matter of preference, but it's great to see guys on all sides of the spectrum become more secure about it all. I myself aren't very hairy but have to admit I shave my upper body (only leave my pits), buttcheeks, crack, shaft, balls and the happy spot ;) once a week. The bush is either trimmed real short or in some shape or style. Rarely from time to time I'll have it all off. The legs is just so much work for me. Only ever shave or trim them like every second month. I just like the feeling of being smooth and "cleaner". And besides the towel doesn't get that wet after a shower. :lol: Also, after 16 years kinda figured out this is the way my man likes it. When it comes to my preference on guys - I don't really mind. I just really like a smooth shaft and balls. The rest I don't really have a preference. Maybe being bottom has a bit to do with it. LOL. Oh yes, have to admit I don't like back hair. Not that it's like yuk or anything, it just look real "untidy" for a lack of a better expression.

Would like to hear your thoughts, inputs and ideas on "manscaping".

I find it really interesting how people can have an intense different feeling and view on the same thing. That simply removing hair can make me feel so different and "special" spending some self love time and the very same silly practice wake up a feeling of someone being degraded in your mind. I'm always fascinated with the human psyche. We truly are a very special species.

I think it's all entirely up to personal choice and preference. I think trimming everything down is enough for me and I like some chest hair and pubes on other guys, but some people think differently. It isn't really that big of an issue for me either way, but when it comes to preference I like it natural! hahah

If you're Sasquatch a little trimming will go a long ways. I mean what fun it is to have everything hidden behind a layer of fur so deep you need a machete to find it.

Some light manscaping to cut back excessively long/thick body hair is fine. I keep my pubic area trimmed down neat (not shaved completely, I find that weird). I do shave my balls and base of dick to keep that clear of hair, and I also remove the hair from my upper arms, back and ass.

Elsewhere I honestly just let the shit grow, sometimes I trim my chest and stomach if I feel it's getting a bit excessive. I prefer hair on other men too. Unless you have an exceptional-looking gym body I find the waxed/shaved hairless look a massive turn-off. I love hair, it's manly.

Thinking about it I would probably only trim my upper body if I had proper fur. My problem is I have hair on my stomach and then 2 patches around my nipples. And I'm very fair skinned. It kinda looks stupid to me if I don't just shave it. Almost like someone that have patches on their face and grow a full beard. It looks odd.

I waited 30 years to get a bit of hair on my upper arms. I'm not about to get rid of it :lol:

Some upper arm hair can work on some men, if your lower arms are also very hairy (which I actually find sexy as fuck, I love hairy forearms).

Sexy;

I'm weird though because I only get the long, thick, dark hair on my upper arms. My lower arms are hairy (I'm hairy pretty much all over), but it's that really thin short light body hair that doesn't grow into much. So for me it just looks weird if I shave my back then leave random patches of noticeable thick hair on my upper arms.

I will say I'm not as repulsed by back hair as I used to be though. I still prefer the area smooth on both myself and others, but I'm not as immaturely "ewwwww back hair!" as I was when I was younger if it's growing back in a little.

Dito! You're not the only one! I don't get it. Makes no sense. And I had it. Hence I shave them off.

I never could understand the desire to shave one's body. I do think that nasal hair is gross and should be trimmed. Some guys when they get older also develop hair on their ears. I can understand that.

As to shaving arms, legs, ass, belly chest, crotch, etc, I never understood why someone spending so much time on such things. If you want to look good, it would be better to spend time on working out to develop your muscles and doing cardio-vascular exercises. I admit that I like body hair on a man, but regardless the obsessive shaving thing just seems weird. Spending a lot of time on trivia things like shaving strikes me as effeminate. Think of all the time women are expected to spend on shaving, their bodies. Do you really want to do that? I can understand someone who is very promiscuous shaving to avoid things like crabs, lice, etc.

I like men that look like men -- not looking like women, or boys. One thing in particular I never understood was shaving one's scrotum. I tried it a couple or so times, and I was miserable. It is humid where I live, and having shaved balls made the sweat worse, and caused the scrotum skin to be sticky. It felt miserable.

I do know that when you have a partner with a hairy back, you have to use lotion to give a back rub as otherwise for some it feels like you are pulling their hair.

Hairy men are beautiful. No one ever confuses them as being female or boys. It also feels wonderful to shower with a hairy man -- feeling his body hair rubbing up against you with lots of wonderful soap.

If you are a hairy man, don't ever feel ashamed of it. Be proud. Plenty of us which we had more. My very first inclining that I was attracted to men was when I was 4.5. It wasn't seeing a penis (the very last thing I look at on a man), but rather it was a wonderful hairy man. The contrast of his very hairy all over body compared to the pure white briefs, was breath taking -- even at that early age. He was beautiful and a testament to the wonders of testosterone and body hair!

You pretty much resolved your own confusion. Not everyone finds the same things attractive. You care about muscle tone. You like hair. You probably also put ketchup on steak and have it cooked well done. Those of us with refined taste recognize the beauty in soft and silky textures.

Im not convinced that someone would find a comparable amount of effort weight lifting as a satisfying endeavour. I think most personal trainers would agree that 2-3 minutes every month is an insufficient investment of time or effort to make any determinable change to muscle mass or cardio vascular fitness.

On topic, all I do is keep the pubic area trimmed. As some of you are aware, I have gone to the trouble of determining how I feel about going shaved, ultimately not a good look for me. But I’m not very hairy anyway. Aside from a small patch of hair in the middle of my chest and a little smattering on my lower legs, I’m pretty much hairless excluding the gentleman’s area, and so I think if that gets left to grown unchecked then it just draws attention to an area that is pretty much lost to a unsightly thicket.

I am one of those that don't mind some hair, but do prefer less rather than more.

I personally have just a bit of hair on my arms an legs, but I would never really consider shaving that. I have some hair around my nipples that I remove, because it looks weird. And I have some around my lower stomach area that I leave alone. The only thing that I really do is trim off my pubic hair once in a while. Because it looks ugly if it gets too long.

And that's somehow what I prefer on a guy as well. Although I wouldn't mind a completely hairless dude either. Although having shaved arm pits is getting into slightly unusual territory.

It is obvious that you have no clue about other people you think you understand. I haven't used ketchup in years. Likewise, I am not much of a steak eater. If I did have one, I wouldn't want it well done. Nevertheless, go on with your delusions of having refined tastes

I'm sure there is a frozen butterball turkey that has the smooth silky texture that you crave, and it is probably more affordable for you.
