    I like to kiss and make out! A clean shaven man is just more sensual ! Beards can be rough and scratchy and that's no good, right? much easier to shave daily that to PROPERLY take care and groom a beard on a daily basis, other body hair is hot.

    1. I don't like the feel of hair on my face. I don't even feel comfortable with bristles.
    2. I don't see myself hanging around with beard+mustache - that's just not me.
    3. Kissing feels clean and smooth when there's no hair around
    4. I need to shave every 2 and even 3 days, so that's not much of a trouble
    5. I don't find beard & mustache looks aesthetic on many man.
    6. Who needs it anyway?


    Shave it!
    Shave it, Shave it, Shave it!!!

    A man who takes the time for his beard needs a man who has the same patience and pride for being a man who also has a beard.

    bro4bro said^^ Haha! Something tells me not many will say "Because everybody else has one."
    But that's the real answer, isn't it?

    It's the same with tattoos. People see some trend and don't realize that they're following a trend and do the same thing thinking that they're doing it because they like it or want to do it and it's not due to outside influence. I've done it a couple of times. The first one I remember was back in the 90s when neon colored clothes became popular and I started wearing them when I was on my bicycle, with the excuse that they made me more visible. More recently I had a hankering for pants and shorts with cargo pockets and when I saw how easy it was to find them I realized my yen was due to their popularity; I still bought some, but then realized that I rarely used the other pockets ( icon_rolleyes.gif ).

    Why do I shave?

    A couple of reasons.

    I can go from daddy to boy with the flick of a razor. (Or the flick of a light bulb.)

    I tried the lumbersexual look in '85 when I was backpacking the mideast in an attempt to blend in because that was one of the worse years for Americans to travel (Achilles Laurel and Athens Airport massacre, to name just a few highlights). Instead of looking like a lumberjack I looked like a rabbi. Not smart.

    If I wore contacts, shaved my head, tatted and pierced up, and grew decorative facial hair (i.e. Elvis sideburns, a goatee, a soul patch) I'd STILL look like a lawyer. One of the reasons I train so hard is that I figure if I'm gonna look like a lawyer, I may as well look like a JACKED one. (Plus I've rocked the Clark Kent look since I was 10 so I figured it was time to go for Superman - and until Henry Cavill, Superman never went unshaved.)

    Btw, someone above mentioned tattoos as the new normal. The other reasons I never got THOSE is 1) they date you, 2) they hide melanomas, and 3) I'm A Rebel.

    I like the 50's, early 60's clean cut look. It's manicured without being metro. Suits me.

    After a week it itches like crazy. And it does not look good on me.

    Decades ago the zoologist & ethologist Desmond Morris (who wrote the "The Naked Ape") postulated that most modern men who shave do it for vanity reasons. Because it preserves a man's more youthful appearance. At least in populations where men will acquire an abundance of facial hair, and at a younger age than within other groups.

    And also shave to make themselves more competitive against younger men, in trying to attract younger women. He seems to believe women prefer younger and more vital males for mating. And that those who keep their beards lose a mating advantage.

    I don't know if he's correct or not. The issue may be much more complex. And has played out differently over history. There are also cultural, religious, economic and technological factors.

    Today shaving is fairly easy & relatively inexpensive, a task we can perform for ourselves. That wasn't always the case.
