    How many of you guys prefer hairy guys, well-groomed, cut versus uncut? Does it matter when you choose your partners? Is manscaping a new "masculinity?" Is "manscaping" an effeminizing characteristic? How many of you *manscape?*

    As a former wrestler in high school, I know that we were expected to shave all body hair and neck hair, period. Beyond the gym, in general society, is it now a social norm? I'm 36 years of age, and you can bet that people would *freak* if I *manscaped* my entired body.

    Many of my students, for example, would argue that any man who shaves body hair (arms, legs,&c), are effeminate. What is it that defines "masculinity" or even "homosexuality" without automatically making comparisons and/or contrasts with feminity? The idea, some scholars suggest, that homosexuality cannot be understood without defining itself *after* feminity. One scholar said "We cannot have homosexuality without knowing feminity, first." What do you think?

    BTW: Any good skin care lotion, that is not oil-based, for acne-prone skin?

    As a hairy guy myself, I have always only been attracted to naturally very smooth guys (primarily Asians)
    I shave my face and trim the pubes very short, but otherwise leave the chest, arms and legs hair alone.

    At the gym I notice this is a common trend now and even some guys that used to look like they were waering a dark sweater now shave thier chest at least and trim the pubes as well.

    Oh boy...

    The first boy I ever dated asked me to shave my entire body. Now this was after being on a swim team so it didnt bother me. Then after he left me, and I let my body hair grow in, I realized how goddam sexy chest hair is. And not only chest hair, but leg hair, arm hair, ass hair, even back hair can be totally cute.
    My last boyfriend was primmed and plucked when i met him, but by the time we were breaking up two years later, he was as hairy as his genetics would allow, and that was pretty damn hairy. Now it is something of a huge turn on for me the more body hair a man has.
    I think to me, its not just about hairy or smooth. If I met a man who was naturally smooth and fell in love with him, i would not wish he had body hair. I would love his body because that is the way it naturally is. I taught my last boyfriend to feel good about his body, rather than try to make it something it is not. He was ashamed of his body hair because gay and even straight culture told him to be. No one should ever feel ashamed of their body's natural attributes. I get people I barely know telling me to wax my chest. Those people get cussed out.

    Anyways, moral of the story:
    Love your body, hairy or smooth, just keep it the way nature intended. If someone doesnt like that, then someone doesnt like YOU. And they arent worth having around.

    P.S. Im cut, but uncircumcised guys turn me on like nothin else.

    Personally as a hairy guy, I don't have a preference of smooth vs. hairy -- although, just as I prefer guys with patchy beards to be clean shaven, I prefer guys with patchy chest hair (ie. Ashton Kutcher) just to shave it off. I do "manscape" but that's just because otherwise I prefer the look, plus it doesn't "pad" my clothes underneath like it did before.

    As for uncut vs. cut, I'm uncut, and admittedly I do enjoy playing with other men's foreskin, although my LTRs have all been cut. However it's been so long since I've touched either kind, getting to touch any penis that isn't my own is a bonus!

    sexy is sexy with hair and without
    and a dick's a dick with skin and without

    there are just prettier one's than others :)

    I'm a big pictured with a smiling face, wit, and intellect, that's well groomed, and fit to built, out, and

    Pictureless are a huge turnoff. The low esteem just seeps from them.

    It's the whole package. It's so shallow about the pee pee thing. No wonder folks think fags are weird. They are. Personal grooming is another matter. It's a good idea. Whatever floats your boat.

    For me, though, it's the whole package....a confident, smiling, pictured, and profiled is a start, then fit to built, well-groomed, out, smart, witty, and articulate, who is disciplined, self-starter, with no bullshit and whining.

    Thank you for posting responses! I was wanting to hear the range of perspectives available on this new cultural trend. Personally, I like my body as it is, and I will like it even better as time passes and the gym work begins to take greater hold. Anyway, thanks for sharing!

    I prefer hairyn men myself... in high school the only thing i could focus on were legs and not get caught... so hairy legs turn me on... especially when the legs are nicely built...
    I like a hairy chest, fuzzy butt, hairy legs and arms and i love a guy with a 5'oclock shadow yumm...
    as for uncut... I LOOOOVE hot.
    if i am choosing someone the only thing i can really see usually is their body hair... but personality is the biggest thing. smart secure and sexy yumm!

    When I see a guy who has a body that is plucked and groomed and edged like a lawn, it is a real turnoff. Two reasons. means he's willing to spend extra time in order to conform to our society's obsession with self-loathing, plastic perfection, which, as an inherent BarbieDoll characteristic, is unappealing to me. He spends too much time admiring his own reflection, which makes him appear feminine to some degree. There's two kinds of men. Gay men, and Regular men. Regular men are the men who allow themselves to be men and celebrate their masculinity. These men ring in the universe because of their sex appeal. They are rare.

    Reason number two: Stubble is VERY uncomfortable. Stubble is uninspiring to a guy like me, who enjoys male bonding via cuddling. Stubble is picky. It hurts, ok? You wanna cuddle a porcupine, go right ahead. Not me, charlie.

    I agree with Faboloso

    Some hair is cute, but too much is a turn off for me. I think the 5 o'clock shadow is hot, but as other people have said, it is prickly and not so fun when you're trying to have fun haha. I don't like guys that are completely hairless but guys that are mostly smooth with "natural" body hair is what turns me on!

    And I prefer cut to uncut, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't date someone because they are uncut--in fact I've dated someone who was uncut and I had a great time in that relationship! ;)

    As far as "manscaping goes", I trim my body hair because I don't like it on myself really.

    What a variety of opinions on this topic.

    I never understood myself what anyone (men or women) finds attractive about a naturally hairy man shaving any hair on their body. Hits the feminine target right on.....but hold on, nothing screams "im trying to be beautiful and lady-like" more than shaving of eyebrows...what the hell is up with that??? Natures way to express masculinity and your removing it??? Damn...naturally smooth does much better than shaved smooth.

    Parallels your classic female bodybuilder doing whatever possible to rid herself of all her feminine qualities....bye bye titties....a repellent for most straight men.

    If you ask me.....limit the razors to your face. Im hairy everywhere except my chest...and damn proud of these genes my folks gave me.

    You smooth...wonderful...thats who you are..those are your genes. Nothing wrong with a smooth body. But cmon guys...whats all this body altering stuff to show more muscles....?? Hit the what you gotta do but leave the hair alone!! Nothing more unattractive than a chest with hair stubs all over.

    Cut or uncut....whatever whatever whatever. Either is what it is.....never realized how choosy society can be. No wonder people have a hard time finding MR RIGHT. Or maybe when you do find mr right all the "requirements" can be dismissed.

    I figured I'd quickly become very unpopular in this hair vs smooth trend...but then again, i've never been a "trendy" guy...the trend can go wherever the hell it wants....I stay put. So maybe if you see me someday you'll notice these days im hairy as heck on my legs and arms...but hopefully before im scratched off the trendy list im noticed for the friendly guy that i am...and my hairs don't get in the way!!

    Let me clear something up guys....I respect everyone's opinion here. I'm not jumping on anyone on this forum...but just giving my personal opinion. Eveyone is entitled to their own preferences so to each their own. Thanks for reading and peace to all!

    Chuncky there is no doubt in my mind you are single- I have read alot of forums and your posts scream out low self esteem. Napolean complex- google it. Like I said in smooth or not- If the world was like the movie Gattica or if we were back in the times of Hitler you would have been in the front of the line for extermination for not meeting the standard of a male. Isn't it nice just to be and not judge everyone on here like you do. In your post for smooth or not-you said the most inane commets to date. Guess you like to dish it out but can't take it. Look in the mirror. Tall dark and handsome has been a standard of beauty in men for aeons. Not short chunky and bald! Many guys on here prefer not to show their face because they are happy, content and confident. Also many for job and personal reasons. It is incredibly ignorant to believe the only reason has to do with self esteem. Someday, hopefully your brain will catch up with your age.

    A Beautiful Hairy Chest REALLY turns me on, and Hairy Arms, Legs, Armpits (whichi lately has become an area of more turn on with a nice musky scent); Hairy Msucular Thighs and Calves, and a really nice bubblicious hairy butt cheeks ass too. But that is not like a pre-requisite to dating someone. It is something I hope for and would like. But I care FAR MORE about the Connection in The Eyes, the Heart, the Mind, and the Soul. Passion and Intimacy are Ignited by more than just two hot bodies. That can be Hot for sure, but for Me I Definitely want to Share My Life with another wonderful Masculnie Gay Man and have that Depth of Relationship that only comes with time and effort, but it is worth it.
    I've never been with someone uncut, but that is an experience I would really like to have.
    I could be with someone smooth too.

    A man with chest hair will get my attention first but that doesn't mean I won't get down with a smooth guy! :) Uncut or cut? No preference. Until I was 22, I had never seen a real uncut dick in real life and was on a mission. Since having my curiousity satisfied at that time, I am not picky.

    Being well groomed hygenic & clean is of prime importance. As i personality and commmon interests when looking for a casual encounter or somethingmore serious/ pernament.

    As a retired model, stripper and bodybuilder, shaving my torso and legs was paramount for success. Hardly femminant or 'gay', just eh best thing for contracts and for winning BB comps.

    I prefer smooth (natural or shaved) and cut cocks. Just cleaner and better ofr teh after hours action.

    Intriguing question, but the gender issue is a little too complicated for this site LOL

    Without getting too sociological or historical, I'd say that we don't live in a gender-neutral society, and most people simply don't want to. After all, do straight women go out with men who shake their butts when they walk, talk in high-pitched voices, or giggle or act like teen girls? If that's not good for straight women, then why should all gay men have to be attracted to queens and twinks (no offense to anyone).

    I don't shape my opinions, my look, or my attitude to please anyone. In my mind, that's what makes me a man, besides my XY chromosomes. I happen to be attracted to twentysomething men who fit the "dancing queen" type, but I also like more masculine men too, with body hair and beards. For me, it's not a gender issue. It's an attraction issue. I'm 36 and I've seen enough trends to hate trends. I like furry men, not because it's a trend, but because guys who can grow a good beard are hot. Plain and simple. If any guy doesn't like the look, just don't pay attention and leave the bearded guys to me!

    As for cut vs. uncut....I love uncut. I'm a foreskin freak, I admit it.
