Ladies of ARFCOM I'm curious how WOMEN feel about body hair on guys. I've had many month or less relationships, but the one real relationship I've had, that lasted 13 months, my GF was at first kind of about my body hair, but over time grew to like it, and she claimed it even turned her on because it made me feel like "a man" compared to other guys she had dated her who had a lack of fur. I'm essentially a grizzly bear, I'm 6'5" 205 lbs and almost 19 going into the .mil I'm just curious how important it is to women, and if it's going to put me at a disadvantage? Thanks!

Edit: I figured you ladies would like some pictures to help the decision making process

This one was taken for my ex (Yeah, thats my sexy pose):


And then, the not so good one:

I think it depends on the woman/man involved.
I don't normally like hairy, but if I like someone it won't change my opinion of them.

~within reason - if your back hair is coming out of your shirt collar; ect, I am going to say

Some degree of fuzz is usually expected with a guy but personally I prefer it to be minimal

I've got fur from ankle to neck. I've tried shaving it before, takes about an hour just to make my biceps look normal, and the upkeep is about 30 minutes every other day. I've given up on nair and shaving (never tried waxing). I figure I'll hopefully find a woman who doesn't have a problem with it.

Chest hair is nice.

Back hair not so much.
If it gets too long at the shoulders you can wind up with a hair up the nostril at a very disconcerting time.

Yes, please. I find men without hair (including on the back) very effeminate.

It depends on the woman. I don't have any back hair, but have a chest like a rug. The wife says she loves it.

Im also hairy and I hate it but thats my personal preference. Now only if laser hair removal was cheaper. But with that im worried it will mess up all my ink ive aquired over the years.

Thought about doin that, but I know in 10 years laser hair removal will = cancer.

Some girls like it, some don't.

I always say (kidding, of course) that girls that don't like at least some chest hair are closet pedos because they want boys, not men.

Apparently many women make that distinction. Others tend to think I'm the missing link. oh well.

Aww... I was just kidding bro. Don't worry about it. I got some fur going too, nothing on the back though. In my experience, some chicks dig it, and some will ask you to get rid of it. Most aren't going to go nuts over it and just kick you to the curb. If they actually like you, and aren't totally shallow, they'll find a way to be good with it.

Personally, I don't like the fur and have tried to keep it at bay. I would advise against waxing though. It sucks pretty bad.


Link Posted: 5/3/2009 2:25:30 PM EST

I love hetero-bears and the naturally hair free (love asians). You're all delicious.

However, men who shave body hair are a huge turn off. I hate scraping up my face on a shaved chest. Sweaty shaved chest is sooo gross.
Trimming strategic parts is a good idea though.

Also, as you're enlisting, we now expect sexy uniform pics in the near future.

Damn dude. That's some back hair you have goin' on there. That would be too much for me and I've never before seen bicep hair on a man. I knew a fellow who shaved his arms (he was a body builder) and it took some getting used to, but it was better than lots of hair. In all honesty, I could get used to a man with a ton of body hair, but you'd better have a hell of a personality.

Don't worry, there's plenty of ACU (or lack there of) goodness coming to the ARFCOM Women's section after I get out of OSUT and have some down time.

I've been getting laser on more other parts and it works pretty awesomely. Hasn't totally removed everything even after 6 sessions but its made a big enough difference in regrowth that I don't really have to bother with shaving or trimming or whatever if I don't feel like it.

Unfortunately the laser works by discerning the hair from your skin so it's ideal if you're pasty white and your hair is kinda dark. Unfortunately I don't think it would work very well if you have tatoo's. Not sure if it would mess up the tattoo's but the laser probably wouldn't be able to differentiate the hair very well

that sux for me then. ive got 18 tats around my body and id hate to ruin my work just to get rid of the hair. maybe ill jest get covered in tats and that will hid the hair sort of
Link Posted: 5/3/2009 4:29:52 PM EST
Dude, don't even worry about about it. If you're in a relationship, and a chick dump's you cause of your body hair, she's not the type of chick you want around anyways.

I'm pretty sure chicks now-a-day's don't dig body hair and that might hurt if you're trying for a one night stand type of thing

They wont go over the tattoo and if they happen to hit it by mistake the ink blisters pretty bad.

Dude, I go to the beach all the time.

I get laughed at too. I don't really give a shit, anyone shallow enough to laugh at HAIR is not someone I have any interest in dating/befriending/procreating with anyhow.

My friends gimme shit all the time for it, but that's all in good fun etc.

It's all about confidence. If you're confident enough to not give a shit and just walk around without a shirt, and you're a grizzly bear like me, the wimmenz will notice. Believe me.

Yeah, I've known a lot of guys with red beards who can grow them quite quickly. I shave everyday, but generally if i let it go for a month, i look like a totally different person.

Good luck brother. My thoughts for your mother. I'm busy trying to get them to knock my ship dat down to around the 24 June timeframe. I'm done with school, and I have no reason to sit here for 3 months.

That's when you pick up either the DE safety razor (BTW Israeli Persona blades rock), or you go full bore, and get the straight razor. Watch you woman try to borrow your razor then!

And no decent woman would borrow your razor. Seriously. I'm sure if I ever even looked at Mr. Bigeasy's razor too long, he'd sense it, pull me out of the shower and put me outside in a bath towel while he packs my bags. I had a problem with girls trying to borrow my razors so I just bought a big bag of cheap ones so I could let them have one of their very own.

I am not sure if the laser is the same for hair removal as it is for tattoo removal, but I am getting a tattoo removed and it doesn't hurt bad at all. It kinda tingles a little. If you can withstand a numb foot, you can do this. It hurts less than the tingle in your foot after it falls asleep and you are trying to wake it up.
