Just by the Hair on My Backety-back-back
Boy, am I glad I missed the “shave your whole body” fad.
When did that start? Who started it, and who decided this was something desirable?
I came from the time when having chest hair was something guys couldn’t wait to show off. Guys in high school started going shirtless to show their curly black chest hair. I, of course, had none. Talk about hairless! (Except for “down there.”)
And then it started – very late high school – the nipple hair. Not chest hair. Just long pale strands of hair around my nipples. Not a chest hair in sight.
I was that way for ages – middle ages – then the other hair started coming in. Hair on my butt, hair on my nose, hair on my ears, hair on my back.
That’s when I stopped going shirtless. Totally. Not even to swim. Barely to shower.
As I’m cruising thru the RSS, that gadget pops up. Razorba. It’s to help shave back hair.
So you’re pretty hairstute and think that it is the back hair that turns on the ladies? Think again, dude. It is now in the 21st century and women prefer clean shaven guys instead.
I’m glad I don’t have to worry about being “hairstute.”
I would pull a muscle using the Razorba.
All this “completely shaven” stuff baffles me, too. Especially these days when men except women to be hairless “down there”. That just says pedophilia to me.
You’ve been quiet today. Drinking, or hung over, or both?

I don’t get it either. When our teen boy came home saying that he’d never again wear shorts to school because the girls were making fun of his leg hair, I decided that the younger generation is really messed up. Is it fear of maturity? Age bias? Sanctioned pedophilia? I don’t know. I for one liked chest hair on a guy.

@Gretchen: I have been quiet. Not much has moved me – yet.
@ Incurable Insomniac: Leg hair??? Wow! Again, I didn’t like to wear shorts because my leg hair was light and it looked like I didn’t have any. That is really twisted.
The modern generation has it all wrong – chest hair is great stuff. I can’t believe guys nowadays are made fun of BECAUSE of body hair!

Eh, it all depends on the girl. My gf never complained haha :P.
But anyway I never understood why people don’t like the chest hair anymore – it’s good looking and STILL for a lot of women it’s still attractive.
@Emo Lover: What about those of us that don’t have “real” chest hair. blah. BTW: I love the variable color hairstyles – if done well.
*grins* a little chest hair never hurt anyone 😉 besides I thought it was a sign of manhood ya know.. maybe that’s just me 🙂
