    The "Chest Hair: Kirk v. Spock" thread in the Trek TOS forum got me to wondering about the relative hirsuteness of our male members. (Yep, I have way too much time on my hands.)

    So, how about it, guys? And what does the wife/GF/BF/SO (if applicable) think?

    FWIW, I'm so hairy that I could pose as Bigfoot in one of those hoax films if I were naked.

    I have a moderate amount of body hair. Light chest hair, light arm hair, moderate leg hair, little back hair. Facial hair is the only area where it's more than moderate, and if I let it go more than a few days, requires multi-stage shaving. As an interesting (or not) aside, my younger brother looks like a shag carpet attacked him at birth, and that he only won by assuming it's form and besting it in a battle of wills.

    Why limit the poll to men?

    Something between moderate and gorilla.. chest, legs and arms are ok for a guy but the shoulders and lower back could use some laser therapy to get rid of it (but it's so damn expensive).

    Of couse the woman who loves me someday shouldn't be bothered by it because it's the character that counts, right? :p

    Pretty much nothing. I barely even have to shave.

    Enough to discourage me from wearing any V-necked tees. :) I'm losing the hair on my head, though, with that gradual joyride beginning in high school with a dime-sized bald spot on the crown of my scalp.

    I have quite a bit of hair on my body, but it ain't like a gorilla.

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

    I have a fair amount on my chest and stomach, and pretty hairy legs. Not a lot of facial hair though.

    People of all sexes, genders and persuasions are free to respond. But do any women want to?

    Maybe I could do a separate poll for female leg and underarm shaving/waxing, i.e., do you, and how often? And what about the Bermuda Triangle? Or has that poll been done fairly recently?

    Somewhere between moderate and gorilla.

    That is, I have hair over pretty much my entire body, but it's not Robin Williams/Dan Hedaya density, it's just what I'd call "regular arm hair length". :)

    I have a fair amount of body hair, but it's quite soft and pale, so I probably look less hairy than I am. Arms and legs are rather heavily furred, stomach reasonably so, moderate chest hair, plenty of facial hair (in fact, I was one of the first boys in my year at school to grow any). I'm rather small and slight for a man, so I guess despite looking less hairy than I am, I see myself as more hairy than I am, if you get my drift. Probably average, but it seems a little out of place given my "boyish" build.

    A bit less of it since they shaved sections of my chest at the hospital the other day. But I guess somewhere between moderate and gorilla. My SO can give her thoughts on it herself, if she so wishes.

    Moderate amount, but it seems to be increasing as I age. I think it's migrating from my head. :(

    Lots of facial hair, stomach hair, and leg hair. Moderate hair on my chest, and only the occasional long stray on my back, thankfully.

    Moderately hairy.

    Although at least an improvement on the teenage years, when the extent of my body hair seemed to be just pubic hair, for several years, and not much else .....

    Body hair: shave, trim, wax or natural

    Since someone else has created a body hair thread. I feel like creating one :)

    What do you do with your body hair? Shave it, trim it, wax it, or just leave it natural?

    Edit: I occasionally trim pubic hair, but only infrequently, so natural for the most part.
