manscaping

The act of a man shaving all of his bodily hair. Not something to I've done myself but has become popular amongst younger men due to young women's interest. What do y'all think?

"Crap. I just went back and re-read your original comment. I must have glanced over it *very* quickly because I misread the first words as "female alphas" instead of "false alphas". Well, that's your explanation why I jumped…"

"Just did a search for the research. Didn't come up with anything to support your claim. Perhaps a link to the research you are citing might validate it."

Darrin Scott replied to Darrin Scott's discussion Nice Guys vs Jerks in Female Attraction, Scientific Evidence and Cultural Stigmas
"I'm not denying that claim, but that doesn't contradict my argument, I am agreeing that the alpha, the one who can gather the most resources, is the most attractive to the females."

"Quite right, that's why books like 'the game' are full of it. Sensing the nature of someone else is a pretty strong thing I think. 'Acting' like an alpha simply doesn't cut it. "

"Just to point out, you began your dismissal of labeling with an act of labeling and casting blanket assumptions. I don't qualify as a liberal in many regards, but such assertions needn't enter this particular conversation."

""A man who...  ...should he desire." I think there is even more going on there. A man who seems smitten over a woman can make the woman feel good about herself. So good in fact, she get's the feeling she can do better than this…"

Nice Guys vs Jerks in Femal Attraction, Scientific Evidence and Cultural Stigmas

As part of my research requirements for psychology, I've been spending many hours writing up a meta analysis (study of past compiled research) on the nice guy stereotype, and I thought this would be a good place to share it. I'll briefly summarize the validity of certain cultural stigmas as well as clarify what the science on the matter actually is. Keep in mind, what I am presenting is not opinion-based nor opinion-oriented, it is a citation and explanation of various research conducted under…See More
