Bald Men Less Likely to Get Cancer

Give Those Balding Boys a Second Look — They're Healthy!

Here's the thing about bald men: they live longer (but with less hair). That's according to a new study that found men who go bald by 30 appear less likely to develop prostate cancer. Young men go bald thanks to a high level of testosterone — but the manly hormone also wards off tumors.

When it comes to turnoffs, most of you agree that wearing pink is a no no and that being rude to the waitstaff on a first date is a deal breaker. But what about baldness? Do you prefer a man with a full-head of hair, or is baldness, and the newfound health benefits that come with it, a turn on for you?

I'm with #17 - AllieS9. I totally lost it over a 6'4" balding, overweight 35 yr old. It's truly the person inside the body that matters. Because he was a friend first, I didn't realize I was falling for him until it was too late for me. :'( Like #16 - Anon said, hair does not make that man.

Like most things, it depends, some men look better bald, some men really need a head of hair. I would say that mostly, I don't find them attractive, but I will concede that some are attractive whether it appeals to me personally or not....but I just love hair, thick and dark - hate light hair on men.

I have not problem with finding bald men attractive. I think it's the in-between hair guys (the balk-ing) guys that require and aquired taste by some. IMO if you're going bald take it all off.

I agree that receding lines are horrific so, if you must shave your head, by all means do so but, I actually like men with really long hair! HAHA. I find that men have naturally more beautiful and healthier hair than women so it's really lovely when it's long. My first boyfriend was a guy I "kind of" liked. Once he went bald (as superficial as this sounds) I had to totally breakup with him. I just don't like it on men.

Bald really doesn't do it for me.

Dexaholic is right -- A totally shaven head is fine (pending strange scarring), but its the combovers, and extremely receding hairlines that turn me off.

I love it... that or salt and peper hair is gorgeous. Or if they're fortunate enough to have a nice head of hair, its gotta be that thick, black, shiny hair!

Either way, really. It all depends on the person. But if a guy is bald, I prefer it if they shave their head completely... a 30-year-old guy doesn't need that 'Saturn ring' around his head!
