Henry Cavill = Hot
When it comes to grooming, some men have followed the lead of many women in recent years, and opted for an artificially hair-free body.
Lady lawns are increasingly manicured and man rugs ever-dwindling.
There is no shame in a man admitting to waxing or shaving these days, preferring a torso stripped clean to natural endowments. Pity.
Men ridding themselves of their masculinity is such a waste. Give me natural over shaved any day of the week.
1) Me Tarzan
I want a man not a plastic doll. Waxing, shaving, plucking bleaching, toning, flexing, oiling – it’s all too much.
Unlike over-groomers, men who leave their body hair alone don’t look like they are about to embark on some bizarre S&M game involving a tub of margarine. Or worse. They look like sentient beings who have more important things to think about than waxing their ball-bags.
2) All or nothing
The problem with going hair-free is that you’ve got to be all or nothing or it looks barking mad. There is no point waxing your chest or back if you’re not going to finish the job properly and give your crack and sack a once-over, too. And from there – pubes stopping half way down your legs? Grading with clippers depending on the density? Urgg, it’s a minefield. If you want to look like a pre-pubescent boy, go for it. And live with the kind of fans you attract.
3) Hot sex
Here’s the science bit – hair growth is determined by hormones, in particular testosterone, which contributes towards a man’s fat distribution, muscle strength, and sex drive. Also known as – the hairier the chest the better the sex. Get in. (Don't worry if you're naturally smooth - you've probably got plenty of testosterone, too, it just doesn't manifest itself through the hair follicles.)
4) Heaven scent
Hair helps to increase the sexy scent of a man. According to scientific research, a woman will literally sniff out a man’s genetic make-up before she decides if he’s right for her. Other men? More so. Hairy men don’t just do sex well, they smell like it too. Science, you know.
Men who are comfortable with their own natural selves don’t give a shit what the trends are or what David Beckham looks like with his top off. They are what they are, unapologetic and embrace what they’ve been given. Hot.
6) Bum fluff
I don’t want to date somebody who looks like they’ve only just finished their A-levels. I want a man who’s been around the block a bit and doesn’t shave his upper lip three times a day in the hope he’ll one day look like a grown up.
Not only is a non-shaved chest cosier in winter and softer on the cheek, but it means that there is no chance of the dreaded three day growth.
Whilst I recognise that, to some, a shaved torso is preferable, I defy anyone to tell me they’re turned on by stubbly pecs or iron filing arms.
9) Your penis doesn’t look like a plucked turkey. It's not Christmas guys, move on.
10) Hugh Jackman. A rug of epic appeal – try and fight it, I dare you.
In closing, when I suck I like the auto-flossing that comes with natural bush.
