The Dirty Thirty: Manscaping

17 Jun

man· scaping [man-skeyping], (v.)   1. a mans grooming of his body hair.  2. grooming of a man’s nether regions.

Metrosexual is a term that’s so (to quote Fergie) 2000 and late. So why is manscaping still a topic of conversation? Because I brought it up! Just kidding. Honestly, inquiring minds want to know.

We’re in our 30’s. Much of life is about image, and I want to know just how far men are willing to push the envelope. When it comes to manscaping I’ve been hearing it all. On one hand, I’ve talk to men that consider it a toss up between comfort and confidence.Then, there were the men that found it as simple as wax or cream. I’m an electric razor kinda guy myself when it comes to BB and pellet, if you know what I mean.

It’s summertime. Many of you may feel the need to trim the shrubs for breathability. Others of you may like the tropical musk that you can only find in a rain forest. So the question is, how do you feel about manscaping? Is it necessary? How much is too much?

P.S. For those that are new to manscaping in general (bless your soul) check out this how to video.

    Boo to manscaping! I think it’s entirely unnecessary for most men. An exception might be a man who has a chest like a gorilla, but ideally he could find a woman who loved all of him just the way he was.
    A little maintenance is appreciated- just be clean and not shedding all over my stuff and we’re good. I’d love if guys held girls to the same standards! If you want to manscape, go for it, but do it for yourself.
    Also of note: nothing is less appealing than a chest (or nether regions) covered in regrowth and ingrown hairs.
