I have too many random moles on my head to ever risk shaving it. I'd probably bleed out and die.

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.
Heartbreaker.

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

Just my luck to live in a culture which values less body hair on women and I'm "blessed" with some Neanderthal body hair throwback gene. Let's just say the legs get waxed every four weeks. It's not just vanity or giving in to cultural pressure, though. I wear tights at work, and tights or stockings on hairy legs is not a nice sensation. Something for the lads to try out.

I approach the Robin Williams end of the spectrum, and dont worry about it much. Its very easy to take down w a clipper, but women who like masculinity love it as is.

Sparse to moderate. Hair is kept Army standard up top, trimmed mustache, and I 'manscape'. Imaginations may now run amok...

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

I've always had a reasonable smattering over my chest, stomach and legs. It's slightly darker than the blonde hair on my head. No back hair, thankfully. This past year since I've started bodybuilding I regularly trim in back with an electric blade. Grows back fairly quick!

Smooth, but only cause its all shaved off. I really don't like being a hairy Italian guy, much prefer smooth.

Another reason not to shave your head with moles on it.

Yeah, I'm really not concerned with the skin cancer aspect. The razor slicing off my moles and bleeding forever is a much more immediate threat.

Heh, if you lived where I do skin cancer would always be on your mind.

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

Thankfully the hairs on my knuckles are fine, very lightly colored and few in number. I think most if not all men develop knuckle hair during their lives and I've seen some genetic doozies. Tellarite hands are smoother than some I've seen over the years.
