Body Hair?

So lately, I've really been wondering, how do guys feel about dating a guy with body hair? I'm not to fond of it, and I was wondering; do other guys dislike it(Like butt hair for example.)? Should I shave, or would I be fine and be able to find a Boyfriend?

Re: Body Hair?

I'm a woman who doesn't shave, and I'd say do whatever makes you feel most comfortable. If a guy won't consider dating you because you have body hair, he probably doesn't deserve you. But, shaving only because you're worried that people will find you gross and/or unattractive isn't good for self-esteem.

Re: Body Hair?

I prefer no hair. but that's not something that's gonna make the person less attractive to me, what matters to me is the person i'm with and if i'm enjoying my time...

Re: Body Hair?

There are definitely guys out there that like hair. I'm a fan of hairy legs, but not a huge fan of upper-body hair (except for armpits).
Don't worry - the reason the "bear" category of porn exists is because so many people find hair attractive.

Re: Body Hair?

I hate my own body hair. Like it on others. Hair doesn't gross me out, pubic or body. As long as they aren't grimy.

Re: Body Hair?

I tend to like smooth guys, with the exception of a few spots (pubes, pits, treasure trail). Which sucks because I'm anything but smooth.

The hairier, the better! (except for a hairy back, which doesn't really thrill me)

Re: Body Hair?

I personally don't like my own body hair and tend to trim it off but I wouldn't mind dating a hairy guy.

Re: Body Hair?

I prefer no hair but it's not something that would determine whether or not to go out with someone

Re: Body Hair?

Oh, I'm sure there are several men who like men with body hair. Just gotta know where to look.

As a female, I prefer girls with some body hair. I really like pubic hair, and I don't mind leg hair or even armpit hair if It's hygienic and clean.

Re: Body Hair?

Love hairy guys. Not sure if it's possible for a guy to be too hairy for my taste.

Re: Body Hair?

It depends whether you're fine altering your appearance so others can find you attractive versus staying the way you are and having those who are already into you appear in your life. For me, if you look like a bear, no thanks, but neatly maintained hair in common places like under arms, "down there", and legs is fine. I think no hair at all looks rather pre-pubescent and unnatural.

Re: Body Hair?

I like hairy and smooth guys, but the hair has got to suit the person. Eg, guys with tons of muscles tend to look better fairly smooth. However, I'm not massively into the hairless ultra skinny twink type, and I still have an issue with guys completely removing their pubes. I don't care if it makes it look bigger, it also makes it look like a kid's! Ugh -.-
Also I lol'd at the spellcheck on a gay website not recognising the word "twink" :P

Re: Body Hair?

The first (and, not coincidentally, last) time I slept with a dude with no body hair, I had trouble getting into it. His skin felt like a frog or something, not fuzzy and soft like body hair.

Anyway, we all have preferences. If you decide to shave, trim, or go natural, you'll find guys who are into it!

Re: Body Hair?

Body hair doesn't really bother me (except for some of my own). I like guys who are hairy, and those who aren't so much. It doesn't really matter to me.
