Body hair

Ok so I am kinda freaking out because I found a black hair on my back I don't mind body hair anywhere but my back..Im only 14.

So the question I want to as is if I am getting Back hair or if it is the testosterone causing one to pop up?

Re: Body hair

That's normal, people begin to mature at different times. Some people have been known to get chest hairs at 12. That is nothing to be worried about.

You might. You're only 14, so it's hard to tell. Just wait.

Re: Body hair

That would take extreme flexibility O_O.

I wouldnt worry to much about it now. Your only 14, just see how it looks in a few years. Most people have body hair in one place that they would rather not so I wouldnt get too upset about it. When you get older if you cant stand it, you can get it waxed. But who knows it may suit you in a few years,

Re: Body hair

Like what everyone else said, you're only 14. Don't worry about it too much. It might just end up being very "light" in appearance so people probably won't notice, plus you'd also have to have your shirt off or wear tanks lol.

Re: Body hair

I was the only kid in my grade 8 class with hairy arms/legs but I didn't really mind. I don't get it on my back really yet though in my 20's though, so I don't really know what to say about it.

Don't let it get you too down though, there's lots of guys out there who like guys with a natural coat lol.

Re: Body hair

I think there are very few people who would refuse to date you over back hair. I wouldn't worry about it unless you hate it for some reason apart from what you believe others might think.

Re: Body hair

Make your life easy. Yeah it might grow in a bit more as you get older, but at the end of the day it is a lot easier to accept it and to say "yeah whatever" than worry about it.

Life is too short to worry about such an insignificant thing.

Re: Body hair

Also, wanted to throw it out there that the last guy I was with had no problem with my hair.

Twink is just as problematic a standard of beauty for gay men as Barbie is for women. You don't have to get rid of it just because you think people want it.

Re: Body hair

Personally I hate back hair on myself, but I don't really mind it much if another guy has it. As long as there's not a bunch, lol.

Oh hahah. Don't worry too much about it. Being more tan may help with hiding the hairs lol.
