Ouija2013, it is very clean and hygienic.
Without getting too graphic, shaved underarms allow anti-perspirant to directly contact the skin.

Yes Eric I get that. Seriously never heard of an average man doing it - movie stars, sports guys, but not just regular guys. I'll get over it LOL

This thread seems to be getting "spirited", interesting.

How boringly simple that would make things were players, serial daters and/or liars (wondering whether secretly gay was forgotten here) to be recognized that easily, simply by being well groomed! LOL.

Athletes aside, for all other guys it boils down to esthetics: While some amount of hair on the male body is sexy as it simply is masculine, I would not want to get naked with a guy sporting that furry look, i.e. hairy back, butt and underarm hair long enough be braided into little dreadlocks.

Who would have ever thought guys would spend more times shaving other body parts more than their face...

It is not a red flag to me, but I understand your concerns due to you experiences.

Body builders shave all the time. I don't even think about it if he is masculine in all other ways, and the three I dated all were. Some of them are so muscle bound they have a hard time doing some things. The last one I dated had his son do it for him as I would not. He had a special electric razor for this purpose.

I happen to prefer a masculine male with heavy chest hair. With that said, it can get very disgusting in the summer when said man is working in the yard, sweating and the hair gets damp from sweat. Hair holds bad smells in as well.

You forget something, OP: WE ARE MEN. We invent tools. We improvise when needed. Cable ties, a piece of dowel rod, and a razor is all we would need to accomplish shaving our backs. Of course, one could man up a little and use duck tape instead of the cable ties.

I've often shaved my underarms. What do you want to make of that? You know why I do that? Because I figured out why women do it: That hair traps in stink! Easier to keep clean if you don't trap in stink. So before a work trip to the north woods, which I take a number of during the summer months, I do shave there, as showers won't be available every night.

But I suppose by your "logic" I am somehow a player, serial dater, liar, and so forth... Not sure how you come up with that one though.

Oh, and please do stay away, from all men. None of us need a judgemental paraonid nutter.

Have you ever thought may be its YOU, who they choose to dump due to your old fashion mentality? ?? Think about it...

I love a man who takes care of his body and cares how he looks. Body hair doesn't give you faithful attitude ...LOL

This was the funniest s....out there, grow up

ProcolHarem, forum romance is easily within your grasp.
I am going to speak to you in "secret guy code" so the women can't read it:
"Usenay a razornay on yournay bodynay. Ladiesnay apparentlynay lovenay itnay!"

Dear Eric
Please Quit advising hairy men to shave,(the few masculine hairy men we have left.) Hope they do not follow your advice.
I will stick to regular/natural men that aren't afraid to be masculine,because in the house the only femenine should me and ONLY ME.
And with that said,I am leaving this thread for good 2.

Why do you people assume shaving makes you 'the feminine one'.
How dumb!

If you look like a gorilla, you need to shave. Or at least trim.
If you have clean looking body hair and it isn't too much or too...gross, then that's fine.

But like Charlotte York said, "you shouldn't be able to grab someone's back!"
Ew haha.

I've started to ask men I know if they shave their underarms. They do not. But they do quickly change it to " arm pits" Guess it is akin to dolls vs action figures

Masculinity has nothing to do with body hair. It's a matter of preference and hygiene. If you don't want a man that removes body hair, then don't date him, or if you are a man and don't want to shave then don't. Simple. Personally, I like it :-)

They are all yours. Keep them away from me..............ew.

If they classify their masculinity by how much hair they have on their body, you can have them. Nasty.

If they are too lazy to groom, they are all yours.
