Only about 20 percent of women rated the more hirsute versions of the men as more attractive.
Whaaat? (Related, timeless: The Top 10 Chest Hairs of All Time.)
hot guys, hair, body hair, chest hair
Chest hair is awesome. Back hair is...not so awesome. It's a double standard, I know, and I'm sorry but that's the way it is.
@yrouttasight Burt Reynolds in the front, Michael Phelps in the back.
@yrouttasight Back hair's fine as long as it's balanced out by chest hair. Plus the easiest way to cheer your guy up is to scratch his back!
I enjoyed that list....significantly more than I would have guessed.
@OhMarie I am appreciating the hell out of some Chris-Evans-with-chest-hair right now.
Did you see Jason Statham? JASON STATHAM. hnngghh
@TheBelleWitch It's reinvigorating the insane jealousy I felt over Edith's GQ article, for sure.
I don't know. I'm a pretty big fan of chest hair.
@maybe partying will help Me too!!!! Love that stuff.
@maybe partying will help Thirded. I much prefer my husband's frontal chest/torso region to be au natural.
@maybe partying will help Fourthed! Glad I'm not alone.
My manfriend has to keep his chest hair on lockdown because the second I spot any exposed, my hands/face go straight to it. The stuff's magnetic.
Whaaaaat indeed! Hairy chests, man. All the hairy chests for me.
My buddy buzzes his chest hair to be much shorter. I, on the other hand, cannot keep up. It is what it is and what it is, is spectacular.
My Gentleman has the prettttiest chest hair ever. Hairy Scotsman thick (rather than Ex, who was hairy Sicilian thick), and in this very lovely pattern. It is definitely the nicest chest hair I have ever seen. And he has very little back hair to balance it out. Boooom.
I prefer no hair to hairy, but I prefer hairy to shaved.
@fondue with cheddar (formerly jen325) Shaved gets so sharp and itchy :(
@meetapossum Exactly! That's why I also prefer beards.
@fondue with cheddar (formerly jen325) It's also why I'm extremely lax about shaving my pits. I pretty much only shave when I'm going to be wearing something sleeveless.
Hm, body hair is one of those things it has never occurred to me to consider in a person.
Oh! Unless a dude has less arm hair than I do: then I'm just embarrassed about my monkeyarms.
@SarahP I dated a guy once who shaved his entire body (below the eyebrows). It felt very odd.
@Amphora Me too, and yes, yes it is. (except below the chin, for mine.)
@SarahP i was reminded of this time i was hanging out with some friends/acquaintances and everyone was comparing arm hair, maybe because we were all tipsy at the time/weird all the time. i somehow was the hairiest out of like, 4 or 5 apparently hairless guys. one of them told me he was a like a plum and i was like a peach and it was the most bizarre thing to hear about your arms. i was laughing hysterically but his gf gave him so much crap about it.
Chest and back hair fall under the category of things I do not miss about dating men. But that just means all the more for the 'Pinners here!
@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose Oh man ditto.
My boyfriend has roughly four chest hairs, so I'm biased.
@frigwiggin Same. Well, 4 nipple hairs. I like to tug them because I'm mean.
@frigwiggin Ditto. I actually have more nipple hairs and belly button hairs than my bf.
BUT, I don't really have a huge opinion about chest hair. I imagine he'll have some when he looses his head hair.
Thanks to this list, I have realized that I've been confusing Burt Reynolds and Tom Selleck for each other my entire life.
@RK Fire See also:
Long / LeBouef
Pullman / Paxton
and, when I was little "Guy in Platoon" / "Guy in Apocalypse Now"
I also thought the song from "Eddie & The Cruisers" was a Springsteen song, and until I was 29 I thought "quinoa" was another name for couscous.
@leon s: I knew about the Pullman/Paxton comparison, but not the Long/Laboeuf one! I've never confused the latter because one is a Mac and the other is in terrible Transformers movies.
Speaking of musical confusion, I used to confuse STP and Pearl Jam as a pre-teen. I don't know why. :(
Definitely prefer the hairy chest. I always have, but even moreso now that I'm over 30. I couldn't hold it against a sparsely-carpeted fellow—he can't help it, but hairlessness = a boy; hairy = a MAN.
If it's particularly long or fluffy, a little trimming is nice just to keep it under control. My lovely, recently-no-longer-boyfriend (I'm so sad!) has just the right amount of chest fur, and I always loved seeing a little bit of it peeping out from the neckline of his undershirt (the athletic kind, not the t-shirt kind). Nnnnnngggg . . .
yay, chest hair! my guy is pretty woolly - even if he wanted to shave/wax/whathaveyou, he's got nowhere to stop on his arms, it would be like having a naked t-shirt on. but i love tracing the swirls on his cowlicks, so it suits me fine.
Why would anyone think that a significant number of women are attracted to men based on the potential that there are (or aren't, I guess) parasites living in their chest hair? Even if this were true now, how would it have ANYTHING to do with evolution?
IF YOU JUST WANTED TO KNOW IF THAT LADY LIKES YOUR CHEST HAIR, COULDN'T YOU JUST ASK?????
I'm probably biased because the one super hairy guy I dated turned out to be a raging sociopath, but I'm Team No Hair all the way.
(Plus I just like androgyny and was raised on Ziggy Stardust types. So sue me.)
YESSSSSSS, chest hair.
The Commander Riker/Lumberjack Look will always be attractive to me, basically.
@royaljunk "And beards" indeed. Right on!
I feel like the love of chest/facial hair is related to how much Star Trek:TNG one was exposed to in the formative years.
I <3 chest hair*! The guy I inappropriately hit on a few weeks ago and still haven't really heard anything substantial from? Hairy chest.
*in moderation, but not toooo much moderation, you know?
What is this article talking about?? Chest hair, chest hair! All the chest hair! I'm even cool with back hair! And I may have told my boyfriend that I'd be even more into him if he developed that werewolf disease. I may have done that.
My boyfriend has just the right amount of chest hair. I will always prefer chest hair to shaving...so scratchy :( He also has a beard that I can't. stop. touching. What is it about beards? I tell him it's because I can't grow one that I can't stop touching his.
BIG fan of chest hair! Lack of chest hair MIGHT be a deal-breaker for me. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND the whole hairless chest thing AT ALL! I find it so unattractive.
(But I don't like beards. Go figure!)
