Today’s post is about body hair. I recently read a survey in a major national magazine about Canadians expressing their views on the topic. There was a major rift when it came to the differences between men and women. Seems men prefer their partners to do a clean sweep of the nether regions whereas women seem much more tolerant of their men. What’s with that? I don’t know about you but if a guy is going to make a request like that he’d better follow suit. I personally don’t feel the need to look like a prepubescent teenager so no brazilian for me thank you very much. I’m not sure what that says about men who enjoy that look. I do have a psychology background but I don’t feel the need to delve into that abyss.
Now when it comes to hair on men I prefer it on their heads. If you look like the monkey’s distant cousin go see a professional. Seriously. Get your back waxed. Gah. Do I have to spell it out? I don’t get it, women spend serious amounts of cash at salons getting a host of services done. Why do men not follow suit? Now I’ve dated guys who are at the opposite end of the spectrum and have serious issues with body hair. I always abide by the maxim that if a guy spends more time preening than I do then there’s a problem. I dated this guy who, apart from his eyebrows, seemingly had no nody hair. It was weird. I had a guy arrive late for a date because he had just gotten his chest waxed. Now I understand the need for hairless extremities in sport but if it’s not a speed event is it absolutely necessary to get all of it removed?
Grooming is important. As they say less is more but none is just plain weird.
What do you think? Any funny stories about the fairer sex and grooming? Share ’em!
