  • Hairless men!

    Is it just me or are men starting to look more and more like plastic toys?
    Okay! I'm exaggerating a little, but I prefer men with hair. I don't know why it's so popular lately, for men to want
    to be smooth like babies. Please share your opinions with me and men explain your view on this new trend.
    Thank you in advance.

    I put my foot in my mouth recently with a cousin I'm very close to. I was making fun of men who shave. In our subculture growing up, that wasn't done. It was considered prissy. We're the same age, so I thought I could get away with it.

    The problem is that he's also my barber. Being a barber, he's a bit more conscious of style and grooming than the average man. He also told me that he's like a carpet from neck to ankle and that if he didn't shave it would be unpleasant to him and any woman with whom he was intimate. Needless to say, I felt like an idiot.

      Are you meaning facial hair or body hair or....???<br />
      Because the men in my area are hairier than ever. They all look like Grizzly Adams, if you know who that was.<br />
      It started with the younger kids but now it's as bad with my aged men. Hipster, whatever that means.

        Yes, I know what you mean by G Adams.
        I was talking of body hair. I'm in Canada and the craze is no body hair at all! (Without saying they all have done it.)
        Publicities with men for perfums etc. are all with this image. Even my son told me recently he's thinking of doing it?

          I agree with your barber about excess. I mean women have been doing it a long time.
          What intrigues me is the total removal trend for style not for personal comfort.

            Well...I guess we're slaves to fashion. I certainly can be.

              Theres a really strong hair aversion going on lately. Hipsters are in fashion so having well groomed facial hair is deemed attractive but apart from that i think hairy bodies are frowned upon. Personally i like my men hairy. I also am pretty relaxed about my own body hair. I mean i shave my legs and underarms but only when i feel like it. I dont care if i have a bit of "stubble". I trim my pubes but i flat out refuse to shave or wax downstairs. I find complete baldness on males and females to be weird. Like the obession with youth has led our culture to idolise this image of looking like children, hairless. Personally i think thats messed up. Im an adult, i went through puberty, i have hair.

                I like facial hair. And I don't mind a man with body hair, but there's a limit for me...I've become a little grossed out by overgrowth of hair in certain areas. I really love the idea of grabbing hold of a man's back and shoulders, but getting a handful of hair sort of kills the idea for me.<br />
                But...If I ever have that opportunity, I may like it. Who knows?

                  I prefer hair on women, so I would expect they would prefer hair on me. This sounds like it is being driven by trends in porn.

                    Porn definitely is driving the completely hairless trend for pubs, but overall, men are more less now compared to the 80s where hairy was sexy. I think it's that metro sexual look that drives the hairlessness. At the same time, I am noticing the trend for facial hair and hair buns, but mostly for the 20 something year olds. I wonder if men with hair buns also shave their bodies???

                    I have to say, when I see a model, I prefer smooth and shaven. But when being with somebody, I prefer them just the way they are, hair or no hair.

                      Oh Lord....The man bun? I find it completely disgusting honestly. Not sure if it's the hair itself or if it's that they're usually worn by a greasy looking man to begin with. Not finding that attractive at all.<br />
                      I will admit, I attach all sorts of disgusting preconceptions to guys sporting that look.<br />
                      I don't prefer the high ponytails either that are such the rage in my area of the country.<br />
                      <br />
                      And I should clarify my prior comments, I do prefer well-groomed facial hair. I don't mind if it gets a little out of control a few days but generally, not allowing it to become too unruly.

                        After this second mention of man bun, I have to ask. What is that? Never heard that expression.

                          You're in Canada right? May not have that "trend" there. It's when men put their hair in a sort of messy, or not so messy, version of the woman's timeless hairstyle known as a "bun".<br />
                          I also see a lot of men sporting a high pony tail, which I'm calling the manny tail. There's nothing manly about it tho.<br />
                          I hate to be sexist if that's what I am, but I simply don't find it attractive or sexy in any way.

                            I have to say I really like the man buns and long hair on men lol. But I'm quite gender fluid myself so I don't find typically feminine traits on men or visa versa to be off-putting. I'm not much a fan of mustaches though, I dislike it when the hair grows over the lip and kissing becomes a hairy affair lol. At the end of the day I think different hair styles (whether it's on your head, face or pubic area) suit different people. I like my the hair on my head short and my pubes trimmed lol. Oh and I guess my underarms and legs to be mostly shaved, like when I can be bothered hahaha!

                              *pp: I don't mind long hair on men, as long as it's clean and groomed. The man bun is just not attractive. <br />
                              Come to think of it I'm not crazy about that style on women either, unless it's very well done.
