Default *Spin Off* Hairy men

I thought it strange that a few women commented on Paul Rudd's body hair. I thought it was an average amount. Now, in my family the men all had body hair. So to me, men should have body hair. And I am sure this is very non-PC to say, but I relate a low amount of body hair on men with homosexuals(either from growing up with hairy men in my family or because of the many images of homosexuals with waxed/shiny bodies, probably both) and therefore find it unattractive. What are your feelings on men with body hair?

I've dated a couple hirsute men in my life. I have no problem with it. They're kinda like cuddly teddy bears.

I voted for the last option, but I'll elaborate here. I've always tended to be most attracted to un-hairy guys and didn't really like hairy guys. However, my husband is quite hairy and although sometimes I think it would look nice if he shaved some of it, I obviously love him just as he is.

Funny story, he got a tattoo on his chest several months back and had to shave one side of it. I loved it and gave lots of positive reinforcement, but he expressed NO interest in shaving his chest for me

The men in my family are hairy, my husband is hairy. Doesn't bother me. I actually prefer a hairy chest. The only thing I find unacceptable is a hairy ass. I dated one guy with one and I did not like it. I would have to make sure to never touch his ass when we were intimate because it was just too icky.

I thought Paul Rudd was just average to below average hairy.

A little bit of hair is alright but not TOO much...like when tufts of chest and back hair sticks out of a shirt's neckline...that's a little too much too tolerate.

My boyfriend is fairly smooth bodied, he has a bit of hair on his tummy below his belly button; but otherwise his chest, upper arms and back are naturally smooth. He can't even grow a thick beard and always looks like his face is dirty when he doesn't shave for a few days, which he hates. Poor baby. I like the feeling off running my hands on his smooth back though, especially when he's out of the shower and still damp and cool. But if he had a bit of fuzz on the back, I wouldn't cry about it LOL.

I like hair on a man. I don't like clean shaven men in any way - it's too reminiscent of a woman. I believe men should have facial/body hair. I do agree that it's too much when the tufts are sticking out of the top of his shirt, though

There's an entire gay male sub-population out there who call themselves Bears and they are hairy -- or so I've heard.

I don't like hair. I'm sorry but hairy sacks are gross. No guy would want to go downtown on me if I were Jane of the jungle, and I feel the same way. I don't have a problem with armpit hair or a little chest hair, as long as there aren't tufts of it. A little happy trail is cute. I hate all the upper thigh hair. It's just weird. But my husband isn't very hairy, and he grooms himself in the appropriate way.

In a perfect world I would be with a guy with not much body hair but a kinda scruffy face. But I still like a little (a little on the chest, a little "happy trail", etc.). I can accept and be still totally attracted to a guy who is kinda hairy (like Paul Rudd in that pic, or even a little hairier than that) but more than that and I think it's a turn off. I really don't like back hair.

I think it's normal for men to be hairy. I was never attracted to men who shaved their chests. The stubble can make cuddling uncomfortable. But I think my high tolerance for hair goes back to the fact that I like masculine looking men and that I want to be the pretty one in the relationship.

Luckily, my husband lets me groom him a little. Like when I cut his hair, I shave his neck in the shower. Well, now we've taken it a step further to me shaving his back. He just doesn't want to shave his chest because he thinks that would make him metrosexual and/or less masculine.

Jimmy Kimmel was commenting on how hairless Joey what's his name was on Danicing with the stars this past week. Made me chuckle.

I"m torn on underarm hair. While I'd rather not see chunks of deoderant stuck in pitt hair I don't mind pitt hair as long as it's not wildly long and bushy

My husband is hairy. I don't mind hair on my man at all...butt, back, chest, or anywhere else. It would be a turnoff if he shaved it...all that stubble prickling me, yuck. I'd rather he spent time with me than all the hours it would take him to shave it all every day.

When I was younger it bothered me some, but now I don't even think about it. It's just hair.
In my family both men and women can be fairly hairy. My husbands were nearly hairless. That seemed strange to me.
As we get older, the boyfriend and I often compare notes on our new hair growth. I have almost no leg hair anymore but it's coming back as chin and nose hair. The boyfriend has also lost leg hair but his is reappearing as back, crack, arm hair. We get alot of use out of our clippers, trimmers, and tweezers.
It's just something that happens to most everyone. One of the joys of aging.

I can totally deal with hair. I grew up seeing my bro in his BVDs all the time and he's just about the hairiest man alive. My guy is really hairy, too. At first he was trimming his chest hair but I told him to stop because it was too scratchy. There was also this guy in high school who had just about the thickest, blackest chest hair I've ever seen and I thught he was awesome. No hair is fine with me, too. My ex boyfriend had no chest hair and I liked it. I guess I'm just not too picky in that department, although a little trimming around the, err, sac/crack area can be helpful.
