    Im with Kate Upton

    A new commercial is set at a poolside cocktail party, where contrasting preferences in men’s body hair are expressed by three comely women: the model Kate Upton (some chest hair, but never on the back)

    Among men of all ages, according to the research, the most common area to groom is the groin (33 percent), .....it is?

    How are you men grooming your groin? anyone have a groin grooming instruction guide and terms, for gay men? not sure what straight men are doing down there and are admitting to it, i DO like some hair there.

    Or is this a way to sell us Gillette Fusion ProGlide Styler?

    All natural = huge hairy bush

    Nobody wants to put their face in that... yuck. I prefer just a little hair. Keep that trimmed

    It would be interesting to see that percentage broken between gay and str8. I'm guessing gay would be 80% and straight .5%.

    I admit I groom down south, just to keep it looking neat. Why is it any different than getting a haircut? Many guys trim their chest, pits, groin.

    I'm a surgical RN and protecting my patient's privacy before, during, and after anesthetic induction is a primary part of my job. It's procedure dependent, but sometimes catheters have to be inserted, and the surgical site has to be prepped prior to sterile draping. Point is, nudity happens. I can guarantee you the percent of grooming among straight men is way beyond .5% And there's a direct correlation between grooming and age; it's more likely in younger straight guys.

    I don't know when genital grooming started. I lived far out of the loop for so many years. I think I started noticing it sometime in the mid to late 90's, into the early 2000's. I remember having a young, athletic guy for an orthopedic procedure one night, and after he had been put under anesthesia, I took his gown off to start prepping him and saw that he was completely shaved down below. The surgeon, who was approximately my age, shook his head and said he didn't understand it. "When I was his age, you would have been laughed out of the locker room if you did something like that."

    It's true. When I was a freshman in college (early 70's) I knew of a guy, friend of a friend, who was getting married, and during his bachelor party, his buddies got him drunk enough to pass out and then pantsed him and shaved his junk. It was considered a huge embarrassment for a man going into his wedding night. Now, going into a wedding night without at least a little clean up would be bad form.

    So, it's a generational thing. Where did it come from? No idea, but I think the reason straight guys started doing it was because straight women expected it.

    Some men hate excess body hair. And I have LOTS! I often shave my back in the summer months, and will trim my chest hair occasionally as well. Depends on the guy I'm with, i like to play nicely in the sandbox, so if he wants me to trim here and there (and i like him) them i will... icon_wink.gif

    A light manscaping is a good thing, IMO. It all looks better groomed up and that way your partner doesn't end up trying to get hair out of his teeth with floss. THAT is not a good way to end an encounter with someone hot.

    I get very hairy/thick growth around the groin if I don't tame the fucker so I arm my trimmer every month or so and trim it down.

    I did shave it once but didn't like the way it looked........something very creepy about it like one of those hairless cats icon_eek.gif

    I've overheard presumably straight, young, workout buddies talking about it in the gym showers...."Oh shit; I forgot to shave my junk (his word) and I won't have time to stop home before going to Susan's tonight"

    "Just do it now. Here, I have a fresh razor. I should probably do it too. It's getting stubbly down there"

    It made me wonder, if women are expected to be at least trimmed, if not shaved or waxed, why wouldn't they demand the same of their men. Seems a reasonable price to pay for good head. I don't see why else it would matter to her that he be shaved.

    I think a lot of it has to do with visuals. The longer the hair is down there, the shorter it looks.

    I have such light red hair down there, it's as close as looking manscaped without actually being touched at all!

    I'm totally smooth. It started years ago when I was in Berlin visiting a friend. He was playing in a basketball tournament. The game ended and I walked with him to the locker room. He and his team mates went to the showers all together - a gang shower. None were embarrassed, all spoke English and talked with me as they got undressed talking about what pub to go to after they were finished.

    EVERYONE OF THEM WERE SMOOTH.

    I saw it again at a nude park and again when I visited Prague for the first time. This was the early 90s. Since then I've been smooth and like it that way.

    I'm too damn hairy to try and shave smooth, and I hate the look of body hair when it's clippered too short, so I just take care of the back and shaft and leave the rest. The b&c doesn't mind it, so that's all the matters.

    Look (in before YCYL), I know I'm not supposed to be looking but frankly it's hard to miss the plethora of poles groomed neatly to look bigger in the locker rooms of every straight gym I belonged to. Perhaps wrongly, I assume that anyone over 45 with one is gay.

You know, where the hairline stops in a neat line at the very base of the shaft. Perhaps wrongly, I assume that anyone over 45 with one is gay.
