www.dailymail.co.uk ^ | 8-17-10

Modern 'metrosexual' man seems to have finally had his day as most British women admit to preferring their men hairy, research revealed today.

While recent years have seen the seemingly unstoppable rise of male grooming, 85 per cent of women said that the hirsute look suits men better.

Waxing and excessive shaving got the thumbs down, with girls opting for a 'real man' instead. Shaved chests, plucked eyebrows and the 'back, sack and crack' wax were not, after all, the way to a woman's heart, the survey found.

Only 8 per cent of women said they liked their men groomed to perfection, narrowly beating the 7 per cent who preferred to see a werewolf-like quantity of hair.

The last time man cleavage was so prevalent in the U.S. was in the 1970s — “the golden age of male chest hair,” says Mr. Bryan. Epitomized by John Travolta in 1977’s “Saturday Night Fever,” the convention back then was to skip enough shirt buttons to show off a thick forest of hair, perhaps topped with a gold medallion as a sign of virility.

It’s not easy to shave your ears!

Yeah, I have like, 3 hairs on my chest. That's all right though - lets me show off my pecs more. ;-)

Besides, as someone said long ago: "Grass doesn't grow on the playground..." :-)

It falls off your head and then sprouts in your ears and on your back.

What happens is the hair on your head sinks down into your body and grows out every else, such as nose, ears etc. You may think your hair is falling out but it is just sinking down into your body!

If you lose all your hair up top you can always do a comb over with your back hair then.

Any man who has been with a real woman knows that there is an optimal level of chest hair, not too much, not too little.

'back, sack and crack' wax

I am dizzy with horror at the thought of what this entails... I mean, waxing one's back I guess is not that horrific but... the other two... I mean, are they actually...? Pouring? Hot wax? Up... in... and on.... and then.... ?????

Actually, men's hair doesn't fall out.

It mearly goes underground and eventually comes out in strange and unpredictable places.

This makes me laugh as I have always been a fan of chest hair. Realizing on our first date that my husband was “the one”, I remember fretting for hours over whether or not he had any. I was quite relieved when he went to the men’s room and returned with his polo shirt tucked in tight, which pulled the button part down far enough for me to get a peek at lovely, manly hair sticking out. Whew!!! It has plenty of gray in it now, and yes, I still love it, every hair.

It’s the young girls who like boyish-looking men and are a bit afraid of real masculinity. Me, I like men the way God made ‘em.

White tennis shoes, tight blue jeans, aloha shirt tucked in, Detriot tigers hat, fake mustache and my sweet macho chest.

Great Freeper name, ottbmare! We prefer ottbgeldings, since my daughters prefer not to engage in catfights with their horses. Perhaps they’ll recognize that good men — like good horses — are strong, loyal, hairy and sweaty.
