This custom title now 800% more creepy!


I'm a fairly hairy dude, with dark hair.

I don't like being a hairy dude (though I'm certainly content with being a dude). Thankfully, the back hair is limited to "a strand here and there", but the rest gets annoying. In particular, chest and arm hair. The unibrow is usually handled when I get a hair cut, thankfully.

Shaving isn't a real option anymore - my arms and chest have a 5:00 shadow 5 seconds after shaving, no matter what razor I use. Nair and similar products also don't seem to work so well - if I leave them on long enough to actually remove much, I wind up with some pretty horrible chemical burns. Clippers that are actually aimed at body hair keep the downstairs hair behaved, but don't do such a good job above the belt. They do decent on the chest, but the arms... need to stop looking like Chewbacca arms. Smooth would be the preferred look.

So tell me about manscaping via wax. Alternatively, manscaping via salon. And any other form of manscaping that doesn't involve shaving.

I live in a large metro area (Dallas/Ft. Worth), so if the salon option comes up, finding a place probably wouldn't be an issue... if I knew what to look for. But as someone who's never spent more than $15 on a hair cut, I'm at a serious loss. The only "wax" I've ever touched has been the wax I've applied to my car...

And while they debated the matter among themselves, Conradin made himself another piece of toast.

Shaved arms on a guy look creepy, and I've found a lot of women appreciate hairy chests by their 20s. Embrace the fact that you are not a hairless babby.

Back hair is gross though, I get mine waxed.

Yeah pal? Well, you don't have a tongue but that don't stop me having to SHUT YOU UP!

Hell, embrace it all. I'm hairy as gently caress, and nobody give a drat after a while. Every girl I've been in a long relationship with has always shot down the idea of me doing any kind of wide-area trimming. I have a friend who also looks like he's covered in Berber carpet, and he seems to do well with the ladies too. Unless you're some kind of pro wrestler or competitive body builder, there's no reason to wax your torso.

My only experience with expensive grooming has been getting salon haircuts to maintain respectable long hair outside of hippy college campuses. As such, I would advise: Be a man. Find a waxing place. Go. Talk to them. Ask lots of questions. Get hair removed. See what you do and don't like. Expect to pay for what you get. Tip well.

In the grand scheme of things, hair removal will probably never be high on your list of expenses. It's worth overpaying a little until you have some understanding of what you're getting yourself into, but you won't know poo poo until you try. As always: Good judgement comes from experience; experience comes from making poor judgements.

Considering that unshaved women is a fairly popular porn subculture, along with vintage porn. I would say that there are plenty of men out there who don't demand that their sexual partners look like a pre-pubescent Brazilian girl.

I like the pre-pubescent asian look myself.
