I am with the fellas here who don't shave and are natural. My wifey loves the natural hair I have (and so do I). I think it is a very natural masculine trait. Like some of you, I always admired men like Tom Selleck, Pierce Brosnan and Sean Connery for their manly fur. Growing up (I am 45 now)in the 70s and 80s, it was a time when men wanted to look like men and not prepubescent boys. I have noticed a FEW male models with body hair on the underwear packaging at some stores. ******* Avenue has been pushing the boy look for years. Perhaps the pendulum is changing back?
I'm mid 40's, but started manscaping about 8 years ago. Just did not like the look or feel of seemingly having buckwheat in a leg lock. I try to keep my grooming and hygene at a high level. I don't shave my chest, but trim it for length down to a dull roar. Same with the pubes. The boys get shaved regularly. Back trimed or shaved regularly.
Once you keep up with it, it's not a big deal. But trimming that chest hair for the first time is BRUTAL! The new, stiff, sharp ends on that hair first starts to itch like hell, then the more you rub it / scratch it, it feels like a million little needles going at you for a week. I learned the trick is, just like down low, to not go too long between trimming. Every couple of weeks or so, and the itchiness does not ever really return. Leave it for a couple months and go at it again, and all hell returns when you do trim. I'd sooner set my chest hair on fire than go through a fresh trimming after a long absence without it again!
As to if the ladies like it? I won't shave my chest, so don't know about that. But keeping the hedges trimmed has definately had good reviews.
I started the manacaping about a year and a half ago. Nothing bald just neatly trimmed down there. My hope was that my wife would give me oral more often. Didn't happen. It took a few weeks for her to notice anything at all. She says she likes it but as far as it helping me to get more oral..... Well That Just did not happen. But I like it better that way. I also hoped she would clear out the brush some too, that did not happen either. Posted via Mobile Device
Personally I keep myself groomed. I keep the pubic hair tamed. Trimmed but not shaven. It's been years but I have messed up and actually clean shaved it. No good, in any way. I do keep my eyebrows neat, I don't think my wife or anyone else is into the uni-brow look. I also trim my armpit hair very short, that for me is 100% personal hyigene preference. I sweat, a lot, and hair does nothing but stink if not trimmed frequently. I have very little chest hair, no back hair and my legs/arms are average. I groom my body hair for personal preference. My wife has never asked or implied that I should. I want to look the best that I can for me, no one else. I also have a littlle OCD when it comes to hyigene. That is my take on male grooming.
first time I've heard it called manscaping, but I've been doing it for a long time.. I figure that If guys like a nice shaved va j-j, then why not return the favor...Besides...it looks better without the lettuce on top of the frank..
As for body hair, I've never had all that much, but neither do most males in my family.. I hear its because of a reduced testoterone levels, but I don't think thats my issue.. I'm still as horny as i was in high school...didn't get much then either, but thats besides the point..and I there isn't a bald man in my family...however it looks like I might be the first one...
