    Well, what do you guys think?

    I'm a fit guy, well groomed, but I do have some chest hair. It's just in my chest too, not stomach, back, shoulders, etc. When I wear a polo shirt, and leave the top button undone, it pokes out.

    My buddies make fun of it sometimes, and say I should shave it or something. I've never done it, and probably never will.

    Personally, I like it, and I think could give two ***** what a girl thinks. If a girl doesn't like it, I think she is not ready for a man.

    Just curious what other guys on here do with it? What do women think about it?

    Well I am not a woman, but I am gay. ;)

    This shave all hair off and grown up men as smooth as a baby's bottom thing is ridiculous.

    If it is that unruly give it a trim… but for god's sake don't shave it all off.

    ;)

    Does that mean if you don't like a woman with arm/leg hair then you're not ready for a woman? It's all natural after all.

    Just wonderin'.

    What about all the women who don't shave their underarms? ;)

    I shave off all my chest hair. It's the way I like it, and have been doing it for years (better when doing nude scenes in films too, hair hides detail). It's more comfortable and clean for me. The guys I date don't have to shave though. I don't mind it.

    There's nothing natural about shaving it all off… is there? ;)


    Yes… but we're not all porn stars.
    :p

    And no, don't start with the cleanliness thing.
    I know you're American… but…

    Haha! I wish I were a porn star, I'd have more money! It's a personal preference. I don't like hair on my chest. That really shouldn't be offensive. And it really is cleaner. :)

    No, I prefer my women to be shaved.

    This thing with guys shaving their chest is a fad that has come about in the last 15 years or so (even less probably). Women have been shaving their legs and armpits in the US for a long while.

    Is there anything really unnatural about it? Most of us (guys) shave at least part of our faces pretty regularly, nobody has ever commented to me about how unnatural it looks *shrug*

    As for chest hair, unless it bothers you or your SO has said something to you about it, I wouldn't worry about it. I don't shave mine, my wife hasn't ever said anything about it and I don't really mind it.

    Underarm hair, on the other hand, has GOT to go.

    Why does whether or not someone shaves their chest hair so offensive to you?

    Then maybe they should all stop shaving and tell you to start dating women and not give 2 ****s what you think?
    Maybe they said it was fad when women started shaving years ago? Fads can last 15 years?

    I never liked undershirts. Never wear them. If it has a normal collar though, like a T-Shirt, it's fine.

    Seems as if I have offended someone. I forgot we live in an age where we must all be so politically correct.

    Better idea, how about the woman continue to shave their legs like I want them to, and I will do whatever I like?

    How about women do whatever they want and don't worry about what you like?
