More Men Going Hairless With Help of Their Partners

Do You Groom Your Dude?

Women today feel the pressure, or preference, to rid themselves of body hair, and now society has paid men back by increasingly expecting them to do the same. "As hairless torsos have become the norm for male models and actors" explains the New York Times, "below-the-neck hair removal has gone mainstream."

Unfortunately the paper discovered that the task of male shearing often falls on the woman. After all, it's pretty hard to reach the middle of your back. Luckily, Remington shaver makers have invented a telescopic handle that will help men with unwilling partners, or no partner at all, shave those hard-to-reach places.

It's one thing to cut the hair on a friend's head, but have you ever helped your man manscape?

Nah, my dude takes care of himself. But I did date a guy who had a very hairy chest. He was considering getting it taken off, and I begged him not was so soft and....manly....mmhhmm.....

I never thought I'd like a guy to have a hairy chest, but I was wrong. There's something kind of sexy about laying next to him and running my hands through it. Now the back hair? That can go.

The only manscaping I like is a pube trim. Also I've never been with a guy with a hairy back but I would tie him down and wax him. I had a best friend in high school who insisted her men had perfect but still manly eyebrows, and she liked how I plucked better, so I do consider myself an expert men's eyebrow plucker. My one ex had so much torso hair, every day he would have a shirt-colored lint ball in his belly button. I like hairy chests, personally.

Luckily my boyfriend does not have that kind of issue (back wise), but I do tweeze in between his eyebrows (I did today actually) just to fix them up a bit. =) But, nothing too serious!

I'm a lesbian, but we help each other wax. Does that count ?

No. Plus he's v. manly that way.

My husband is not extremely hairy so I'm glad I don't have to deal with excess hair. He will occasionally ask me to help him "exfoliate", though. I've noticed he likes to be pampered.

My boyfriend definitely lets me! When I first met him, he would tweeze between his eyebrows. Then I convinced him to let me wax the area instead. I think I've turned him into a little monster, because now he wants me to wax his chest and abs (which aren't too hairy by any means)...but I'll do it because I think it's fun!

My boyfriend doesn't have an excess of body hair on the back, a little patch on the chest, and in the usual places like arms, legs, etc. Since he's not overly hairy, grooming is not a problem. However, if he started getting more hair on his chest and hair on his back, I'd help him deal with it if he wanted me to.

I like him to be somewhat groomed but he or a professional deal with that.
