    no wonder some of us in our oh so welcoming gay community don't feel as though we "fit in", anywhere, and sooo many are "non scene" gay guys, and so many on line profiles call for "masculine only" this is a crock of bullll-shiiit, this is only to give a boost in laser hair removal sales probably because sales have FINALLY fallen off, a "trend" from the 90's, who else would go do something like this but most gay men, and some very hairy crotched women, real men don't feel they need to remove body hair this way, lets just perpetuate the stereotype even more, shall we

    Im going to mess this thread up by reminding every gay man what a real man is supposed to look like icon_rolleyes.gif

    Honestly, I just find the whole thing funny. People get so worked up over this issue.

    Shave, don't shave, lots of hair, naturally hairless....whatever...just be who you want to be and don't worry about what other people are doing. It is even ok to have fun with it and experiment a little. If they are happy with it and it is not hurting anyone....enjoy!

    I understand that some people have certain fetishes and that may make them feel like everyone should be what their fetish is.....but I think they should just enjoy their fetish and let others enjoy who they are. There is plenty of room for everyone! ;)

    I had two sessions a year ago and plan to start again in another year. Totally worth-it.

    This struck me as more of a marketing pitch to gay men, similar to plastic surgery campaigns in the past. But I tend to be cynical when it comes to who is reporting on "the new trend" and what is potentially in it for them.

    That is one of the more sensitive areas of the body (nerve endings). It won't be as effective if they have to reduce the power because of discomfort.

    I had my back done in '06. Around the neckline was the worst. One of the early treatments, I think I used up all of their instant ice packs just to get through one session. Areas with a greater density in hair follicles will absorb more heat than the rest.

    Still glad I didn't do anything on the front. icon_lol.gif

    Used "American Laser Centers". Women make up 90% of the traffic, IMHO.

    I'd only get it done for the back of my neck and my back itself.

    I wouldn't say that only gay or effeminite men only get laser hair removal. The one time I went to a laser hair removal clinic it was filled with women. I think to each his own. I've met a few straight guys who have used laser hair removal, not on their whole body, but on certain problem areas like their lower back and ass. I was going to use it on my stomach and lower thighs because I hate having to shave those areas.

    lol

    I'm just imagining that when the laser hits a big patch of hair on someone's back it starts a brush fire or something icon_lol.gif


    That wouldn't happen lol, it would just hurt like hell. You're supposed to shave the hair beforehand so all that's left is the follicles.

    I've gotten it before for Beckers Nevus. 5 treatments.... Didn't work all that well lol

    Genetics played a role in ensuring my back having much more hair than my ass, generally. How can I say this while I'm at work... He had a lot of hair in his crack. He hated it. I didn't...

    I gave up shaving when someone commented those areas aren't as soft.

    I like to change it up.. and I generally have hair when it is advantageous and don't have any where it isn't.
    For those areas I want to reduce hair... shaving is good enough.

    Unintended saidSome body is the norm in the vast majority of men. My experience has always been that those obsessed with smooth are into boys.


    I guess that makes be abnormal. icon_biggrin.gif I naturally have almost no chest hair. I don't shave it....that is just the way it is. If you get a magnifying glass, you may find a little around my nipples (you could count them on one hand) and lower stomach (tiny bit of fuzz). You really have to look really close to find it. And I really doubt that I will get more later.

    "Real" men are secure in their own bodies and don't need to police other guys about thow hary/smooth they should be.




    *Unless, of course, they're looking for playmates icon_wink.gif
