One thing is for certain: guys like to talk about their body hair.
It's not something I like to talk about here. For me, it's something that people just have to come and see for themselves.

Like Tom Selleck in his Magnum's days, I have the perfect amount of body hair.

You are correct, sir. That is indeed the PERFECT amount.

Mammals comprise a class, actually. Phylum Chordata > subphylum Vertebrata > class Mammalia.

Although there's nothing wrong with taking pride in being a vertebrate as well. It's good to have a spine!

D'oh! Thanks, that was stupid of me. I can't believe I flubbed that. I retract my claim to glory, and slink off to find another classification.

I could be an arachnid, I suppose. Some of them are hairy. Appropriate to a Nasat, too.

Moderately hairy. Though it took a while to "kick in". My feet are unusually hairy, My brother suspects Hobbit ancestry.

It's funny because, even in these days when the smooth look is more fashionable, Tom Selleck's manbush always elicits a few sighs from the ladies.

I have enough body hair to be unhappy about it, but at least I'm not Robin Williams. Poor bastard.

That's because he's the right amount of "manly" to pull that look off. Not easily done.

If you shaved Robin Williams it'd take you about twelve hours to reach his skin. That's gotta be like hacking through the Congolese jungle with a machete.

I also have hairy feet and toes, which is odd since I hardly have any body hair at all -- even my leg hair grows fine and fair, like my arm hair. I like my hairy feet, I think they're cute. My mom is under 5 foot tall, and has loads of curly hair, so I think there is definitely some Hobbit on her side.

Manbush?

Anyway, there has indeed been poetry on the subject:
If asked if I know what follicles I'd grow
Were I to be "King of Panache"
It would sprout out my nose
In hairy little rows
Just like Tom Selleck's booshy moostache!
Tom's hair-covered lip, it just makes me flip
And prone to a horny heat rash
It's woolly and thick
Like a caterpillar's dick
I adore Seleck's booshy moostache!
Other 'staches I've seen, in the places I've been
Look just like Mike Farrall's from M*A*S*H
I despise that man's face
It lacks the beauty and grace
Of Tom Selleck's booshy moostache!
And what about Prince? Oh, don't make me wince
His looks like a wimpy eyelash!
It lacks the weight and girth
Of the best fur on earth
Known as Tom Selleck's booshy moostache!
O! I'd bash, I'd smash, I'd pay cold, hard cash
I'd gnash succotash and huff hash!
I'd marry white trash
I'd thrash Johnny Cash
For a splash of Tom's booshy moostache!
But I haven't the hair to grace my lip there
And so all my dreams must be dashed
My nose shall never feel
The tickly, prickly appeal...of Tom Selleck's booshy Moustache!
-Steven Humphrey

So you are, like, the antimetrosexual?
I suppose you could put it that way. I just don't see the need to shave anywhere else. I don't have much hair on the rest of my body as it is. Shaving it would be wasted effort.

Vain though this may sound, I shave my head because it can be seen...because I hate the way I look with hair and so I want people to see me without it. The rest of my body, no one ever sees, so it's pointless for me to shave it.

Re: Men: How Much Body Hair Do You Have?

I loathe shaved heads. Baldness, bring it on. I'm cool with that. Do it to yourself, especially the completely hairless pate? I'm suspicious and definitely backing away slowly.
