man hair....wax it, shave it, cut it, leave it alone?
real talk, are men suppose to be landscaping their terrain? i mean i'm not a hairy guy at all. i thank & blame my dad for that. two traits i inherited from him, a lack of an ass & the hairless gene. now, not to paint a picture of a bald man. i have tons of hair on my head & most of the puberty areas. tons of hair.
but my chest is bare. my arms & legs aren't very hairy. it still (at 33) takes me a long ass minute to grow facial hair. in fact me and my dad have an ongoing bet. he says he'll grow a beard faster then i can grow a mustache. which i highly seriously doubt. i do have eyebrows thanks my my mom's hairy side of the family. which is one of my better features. but i'm saying....
under my arms. in my pants. lives chewbacca. seriously. i have been told i need to handle that if i expect any "top of the shoulders" treatment. but i'm saying. where do i begin? how could i take scissors, a razor, clippers to my family jewels. don't get me wrong, i've trimmed it up...but i got a feeling the request was not for a trim up. now let me backspace i believe grooming for women is VERY important. but that's because all of your goodies are "inside". so it's like a treasure hunt to find the pot of gold through the forest. for guys...our "junk" (should be) easily seen & found. so unless you're trying to have some nuts in your mouth...what's the big deal?
i understand the cutting fingernail thing. the putting on lotion. combing, brushing, cutting of the hair. brushing teeth. etc. i get that grooming aspect. but my man hair?...really?
what if it takes me a minute to grow it back like everything else. and i mess up. and i'm walking around with patchy man hair. that area is not an area where laughing is appreciated. could you take a man seriously with bald spots on his nuts?
