Hi, I think this topic has already been treated if it is redundant I apologize to the moderators.
I think that chest hair is manly, I actually believe that to be completely shaved just for "pleasure" to women is quite a fad.
But I have a lot of hair on his chest and shoulders equally. The problem is that when I take off my shirt at the beach I am ashamed. What do you advise me? Some friends told me to use hair removal cream, but I would like other opinions.
It's about your self-confidence.
As an aside, the actor Brendan Frazier, once said the worst part of starring in the live action version of "George of the Jungle" was the daily body hair shaving.
The OP really needs to get a bit of a suntan.
Well, you're hairier than me, but only a little. Mine is platinum blond, though, so it's not so obvious.
I don't see your problem. You don't look like a Sasquatch, or some neanderthal throwback. You just look like a man.
There are many who would envy your hairy chest.
Guys one more thing, when it is summer with the hair you sweat more. have you this problem? What do you do? (eg. with shirts)
Yeah, but if you go shirtless, and mist your back hair with a garden hose, it is oh--so--cooling...
As others have said before, it really is a matter of preference, and in many cases, practicality. Many athletes manscape to give themselves a competitive edge, whether a swimmer wants to reduce drag, or an MMA fighter wants to give his opponent one less painful thing to grab onto. And who would question the manliness of MMA? In some cases, the hair just gets in the way or is just a nuisance.
I'm a bit of a hairy man myself, and although I have no interest in waxing or looking like a giant 8-year-old, I did experiment with trimming my chest hair just to make it look a little neater. I ended up taking off way too much, but when it grew back, I thought the mid-growth looked good. I could certainly do without the back hair though if I could make the transition from hairy chest to bare back look natural. My dad (a barber trained in the old-school ways including straigth razor shaves) insisted on trimming my back down, but when he finished, I could see definite lines between hair/no hair territory. It provided great itch relief though. Heck, we put a lot of effort into neatness with our head hair and beards...even shave those without anyone questioning our masculinity.
I agree totally. I feel that chest, and other body hair for that matter, are naturally masculine and should be celebrated rather than shaved. I don't shave any of my body. My wife loves the hair as well. I prefer to look like a man instead of a prepubescent boy.
