    I dunno, there are as many exceptions as proofs to any rule about this. Plus there are changes over a guy's lifetime.

    For instance, I had very hairy arms & legs until my 30s, while my chest was embarrassingly smooth. My pubic thatch, BTW, was like a jet-black Brillo pad, in sharp contrast to the rest of my hairless torso.

    Then as my 40s approached, the hair on my arms and legs disappeared, and my pubes thinned, while chest hair sprouted. By 50, the unwelcome addition of a rug on my back had sprung up. UGH!!!

    I'm a mutt, with ancestry that's Irish, Dutch, French, Scot, German, Czech, and gawd knows what else. I can't think of any predictable hair patterns I've seen with any group.

    Italians are supposed to be a bit hairy, so I've been told. But both my Italian partners have been virtually hairless. Whereas Scandinavians are thought to be smooth, but my blond Norwegian ex-BF was like a caveman, and my duties included shaving his back weekly, when he was just 40.

    So from my own experience I'm not sure any rules apply in this regard, at least concerning Europeans. My subjective observation is that Asians have less body hair, but here again I can imagine there are exceptions.

    Do these qualify as races, or nationalities?

    Nationalities, I believe, but each with myths regarding hairiness. As I also mentioned, I think Asians, who are a race, are less hairy than European Caucasians.

    But I'm not comfortable with these race, ethnicity, and nationality distinctions anyway. With the global world, I can envision a total blending of everybody, where these differences disappear in a thousand years. Although I just read a lengthy study that says human racial genetics are drawing apart. I dispute those views, which fail to consider the dynamics of modern human interaction on a transglobal scale.

    I guess you're right man; i varies from individuals. Do you think certain "backgrounds" have a higher percentage of body hair expressing genes?

    Ya know, I really can't say with any reliability. If you want a hairy guy (or an unhairy guy), I'd say just cruise guys and see what they have. I'm not sure how a definitive answer, assuming there is one, would help you.

    If the answer is Hungarian guys are mostly hairy, for example, what do you do with that knowledge? Can you figure out who's of Hungarian descent? Not easy in the US, where even last names aren't good indicators.

    "Hello, are you a Hungarian?"

    I think the answer is to simply look for guys who are either hairy or not, if that's important to you, and forget about their heritage.

    I'm pretty hairy. I'm from a long line of Australians. My brother doesn't have a hair on him. He's only seven though.

    Ok, that's not true. He's 35, and has no chest hair at all. Also Australian.

    I've been with many Japanese guys with no hair, and I mean none, and others who were as hairy as me, but only a couple. I think body hair's a bit strange like that.

    I lived with a Jewish guy who wasn't at all hairy. He told me that he was more highly evolved than me because he didn't have a hairy chest. icon_eek.gif I doubt he'll evolve from his shallow grave though...

    In the 19 century China when white men come ashore they are refer as barbaric race "the hairy old men" . In Asia only old people didnt have black hair, and of course those European have a lot of hair, on the chest, facial and etc.

    Just some note from history.

    haha thanks guys! I was just curious as to whether hairiness cam with some specific genetic background, some evolved traits (in order to stay warm, or protected from sandstorms, etc.), or if it was just a hereditary expression common among all ethnicities. It's interesting to think about in the least.

    And thanks RS and eb icon_biggrin.gif
