Many say it is a gay thing, is it a DL thing.
Let's do a poll and see who does what.
I shave it to the bone
I trim a bit and shave the balls
Yeah, it's fucking gay to trim or shave your bush. SO fucking gay. Only gay guys don't leave their pubic hair alone. If you trim or shave your pubes you're fucking GAY!!!
Did you know that you're gay if you shave or trim your pubes? Yeah, it's true. You're so fucking gay if you don't leave your hair down there alone. Yup, you're a fag. HAVE I GOT NEWS FOR YOU! GAY GAY GAY!
I take a bit off of the top so that it doesn't show above my speedo.
...and your point R3?
I would love to know the age breakdown of the responses.
I'm 44 and R1's completely shaved pubic zone would repulse me once I stopped laughing at it. I'm guessing he's under 30.
Nothing worse than a completely bare cock. A work of art needs a nice frame.
I think R3 is off his meds.
I love a full bush
I'll shave my balls in the summer because of the whole sweat thing. Otherwise I leave it alone.
R6 I have only seen a couple shaved to the bone and both men were over 40.
Interesting...so far about 70% alter the natural.
R3, You are WRONG, WRONG, WRONG. Savvy straight men have been copying gays' grooming habits for a very long time. My model look-a-like friend manscapes and shaves his balls to facilitate bj's. Hair can get in the way.
[quote]Many say it is a gay thing
When I'm in the locker room I can easily spot who's gay and who's str8 just by looking at their bush. No problemo. It never fails. I'm fucking right every single time. Unaltered bush, str8. Altered bush, gay.
r13 It's gays who emulate straight guys. Everyone knows that gay guys want to be str8.
R6 We know Datalounge skews older so the likelihood that the shavers are over 40 is pretty high.
OP thinks eating a cake is gay. No str8 guy would ever eat a cake, right?
[quote]Many say it is a gay thing, is it a DL thing.
How fucking stupid are you??
What are R17 and R18 going on about?
Many do say it is a gay thing, some on this thread.
Is it a datalounge thing? We are finding out.
What the fuck does that have to do with cake. I personally don't care for sweets.
I'm shaving my balls as I type this
no lesbians so far
I like shaved balls and an almost full bush. Do you thing greying pubes make men over 40 shave down?
A gay guy fucking pussy. He doesn't have an unaltered bush. He's gay. It's a gay thing to alter your bush.
I neither thing it nor think it. Cooper has grey pubes, they are hot on a hot man.
Porn actors are not part of the real world.
So who shaves their bush into the shape of a cake? Is that a thing now? Do gingers go for a red velvet cake or a carrot cake? Is it considered racist to have a chocolate donut?
Since when did bush barbering become such a divisive issue? SO many questions...
Trolldar R3 and bask in the insanity.
I normally hate trolldar, but the insanity makes it almost fun.
This thread is already bloody awful and it's only going to get worse.
Don't let one crazy dissuade you.
I am finding the poll interesting. A lot more shavers than I would have imagined thus far.
I'm in my 20s. Our generation shaves. It's the law today.
R15, Younger thinking, hotter guys often copy gay grooming trends. Case in point, do you know how many young men I see with the same hairstyles as hot actors? Watch straights change their facial hair to conform to the latest male hottie.
Do you think only gays get spray tans?
Not a lesbian but I have waxed every thing off to give my man "a treat," during biniki season. They have European waxing which is much better than shaving.
Also in my 20's and would never shave. No law that I know of.
In fact the only shavers I have ever seen out here in brooklyn were fat old men.
R23, Have you ever thought that some straights manscape to get rid of their grey hairs and look younger? Like females, they want "the carpet to match the drapes."
What do the words barber and barbarism have in common?
I VERY lightly trim. I'm kinda hairy down yonder and if I didn't do a wee bit of weed whacking you couldn't see the tree for the forest! But I would NEVER shave it all off. There's nothing wrong with a little clipping to make your bush look nice, IMO.
There's just something bizarre about a grown man with NO bush! ICK! I'm a man who likes my men to look like men--NOT a little boy!
OP is a moron.
So true R38. Reiterating what others have said and then asking others to determine if its true is something only a moron would do.
People who shave completely don't do it so much for the look but for the feel. The feel is entirely different.
R23, Anyone who enjoys getting oral frequently shaves or waxes, and that obviously includes straight men. Hair can get in the way.
"Men are supposed to have hair, son."
Then why are there so many baldos around?
R41 I get sucked off almost every day and never trim one hair, but thanks for playing.
R43, Does your carpet match your drapes?
I find this whole thing fascinating.
R44 yes...carpet and drapes match for the most part. Carpet is a tiny shade darker naturally.
In fact cocksuckers often comment on how much they love my pubes.
[quote]I take a bit off of the top so that it doesn't show above my speedo.
Your post is useless without pics.
The Voice of the Night
I agree with R14. And I'm always right.
33% natural, meaning I would only have to kick 66% of you out of bed.
I have my gardener come every 2 weeks to trim my bushes. He does the lawn too.
Not a pussy hound, but a bush supporter.
I love the smell
Natural - it's how I smuggled Edward Snowden out of the US.
All this manscaping is such a current thing. I'm in my mid-30s and from what I hear from straight guys in their mid to late twenties that most young guys do this now because:
Straight girls think pubic hair is "gross"
Girls apparently tell their boyfriends they "need" to manscape. Not an option.
American culture just gets wrapped up too hard in things that aren't necessary at all. Manscaping. "Thigh Gap" with girls. This new thing where guys get their eyebrows "cleaned up" when they get their hair cut. Was the 60s through the 90s somehow the "dark ages" of sex because everyone had supposedly "gross" pubic hair? I seem to recall my friends and I getting laid plenty in high school, and this whole "body hair maintenance" thing was not an issue at all. We showered and used soap. End of story.
[quote]I seem to recall my friends and I getting laid plenty in high school
For most mature adults "getting laid" isn't the only goal. They also want their partner to be happy. The fact that someone was tolerating all that hair doesn't mean they weren't secretly wishing you manscaped. Probably would have been a lot happier if you did.
...and the anti pubic hair troll peeks out from his shaved nest.
R56, I say, let's push him back into his nest...
Women ruin everything.
I have altered my bush to look like it's smelling cookies.
Can you just imagine all the straight guys talking to R54 about their pubes?
What a funny dinnertime conversation.
[quote] most young guys do this now because:
You forgot the number one reason... they think it makes their dicks look bigger. It doesn't, it makes them look like eight year old boys.
R60, LOL Straight men talking to R54 about whether or not to manscape doesn't ever take place during a formal dinner. It's what they talk about when they've had a few beers, and see some hot girls.
R54, Thanks for agreeing with me. Straights have copied many gay grooming trends, especially if they're young, or want to be perceived as trendy, or if they want a desirable female, and know that "looks matter." There was a time when "manly men" didn't even use after shave or cologne, remember?
R54 is posting fiction, but since he 'agrees' with you then it is okay.
"I lightly thin the forest"
How effete. Like anyone else even notices that you've ever-so-gingerly clipped the tips of your pubes. Anyone who 'lightly thins the forest' is overly concerned with their appearance. They're pubes, not a topiary.
R64, it's the fun of trimming your topiary that leads to shaving it all off.
One side is longer than the other, now the other side is off, now you want the hair immediately around your shaft to stop using it as a trellis, now you have a buzz cut and it chafes.
Vi-o-la! Ya Gots a shaved FUPA!
Viola of love
It's pretty standard now for straight guys to groom their pubes
No, it's not.
I vehemently disagree, R64. I hate those wiry, long pubes that look like Einstein's jew fro. You gotta trim that shit to even things out and look civilized. Why be well groomed everywhere else then and have gorilla crotch? Makes no sense.
I had a weave installed down there.
Glued in or sewed in, dear?
To me there is nothing hotter than a clean cut guy with a shaved face, no tattoos, nice body and gorilla bush.
I agree gorilla bush is hot...way hot. It says...I am sexual, not I am a pussy.
I do nothing apart from the highlights. Am considering extensions.
[quote]I seem to recall... I getting laid plenty in high school,
Is that all that you recall from high school?
[quote]glued in or sewn in ?
Neither I just grab a handful of hair out of the shower drain and just stick to my crotch.
Yes, I had George altered.
Who are George and Bar?
r78, they are natural Bushes.
well, mebby not Bar...
Only a bit more than 30% stay natural on DL. Looks like it is a gay thing that two poster desperately want to claim as a straight thing.
I've shaved it off for kinky sex parties. Now it is long and full. I like it both ways
68% of straight women at another site linked (ladies discussion board) want pubes on their men.
Not only do I trim a bit--and it's just a bit when things get too wiry, I dye my pubes when I start noticing too much gray in my pubes.
So when I'm periodically applying Just For Men on the hair on the top of my head, I also apply some to my pubes. I just don't care for gray pubes on me.
R84 Baba WaWa?
To me...THIS is "perfect" pubic hair. No trimming,thinning,shaping or alteration of any kind required. So incredibly unmannered and manly.
Manscaper here. And all three of those guys in the photos are manscaped as well. When I see a guy with a huge bulge I don't want to find out later that it's hair.
I'm gay and I leave alone what nature gave me. Occasionally I'll shave my balls but very rarely.
I think it's a complete turn-off when a guy shaves it all off. Not too long ago a guy offered his very thick cock to work on. Lo and behold I discovered he shaved everything off, as if he were prepubescent...he was probably in his forties. Needless to say I didn't continue the encounter.
I don't bother with altering my body hair. It's too precious and peculiar an activity to me, associated with disorders and bad coping skills.
Like a neurotic exercise done by people wanting to attract other hair pullers. I'm glad they have each other, but the rest of us are glad to leave them to each other and get together with other, less damaged men. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Shaved is a huge turnoff for me.
I love burying my nose in a guys pube's when I'm going down on him. Love the smell and the texture of a full bush.
I totally lose my hardon if you yank your shorts sown and you're bald down there.
I shave my left nugget and wax the right.
shaving your pubes is gross and weird and..why? im a man, i have hair on my body-why would i want to look like or be attracted to a pre-pubescent girl=
and i totally dont get straight guys doing this--is it because they wont get their 2 minutes blow jobs once every two weeks from their gf if there a possibility they might get a hair on their tongue?
Trimming my pubes into different patterns turns me on.
Most of the totally shaved guys I see at Gunnison Beach at Sandy Hook are on the straight side of the beach, fatter than average, and old.
At my gym, the shaved guys appear to be totally straight.
I preferred the smell of a full bush
only neo-cons shave
CLones shave, bears grow it
Trimming is necessary. Pubes are a stronger consistency than iron wire of the same approximate gauge. So when a stray falls into the palm while masturbating, the result can be painful and even bloody.
Just a light manicuring, especially in the region closest to the dick. The remainder should be hairy and wild, which is hot.
[quote]So when a stray falls into the palm while masturbating, the result can be painful and even bloody.
you must be of a different species then. pray, tell, what planet are you from?
Grooming pubes is a mark of human progress. Islamic countries have dictated shaving but like in many things they go too far. For the rest of us, like women's rights, one only wonders why it took so long. But shaving it all off is only to get rid of crabs or if one maintains a promiscuous lifestyle. Some bush is aromatic and attractive. But it's polite and civilized to groom a bit, and don't forget nose hairs and wayward eyebrows. Yes the bush is a topiary.
Vintage guys ALWAYS sport just the right amount of bush.
hot guys, I grew up watching them. and yes, they rocked a full bush.
I trim. It's definitely a bush but it's not a forest. Honestly, I'm a grower; I'm a respectable 6.5 inches erect (and very thick), but soft it's the size of a small walnut. If I didn't trim it would get lost. There have been times when I'm overdue for a trim and I've got to root around in there to find my damn cock when I'm at the urinal.
rooting around sounds fun though
Definitely no shaving(made that mistake ONCE) An occasional "topping off", remove maybe half the length of my pubes, cuts down on all the knots. I DO like to comb through them though, when they're at their maximum length. Kills a half hour or so, really fluffs 'em up.
that sounds hot, can I watch?
r120 Sure, come on over, we'll get a pizza, and I'll comb for ya'.
So grossed out by the guys here who fetishize thickets down there.
Keep that shit under control. And keep your fetishes to yourself.
You only mince around here loudly proclaiming the wonder of bushes, foreskin and ripe pits here because you know what a freak you'd sound like if you did the same in real life. You know it's gross and you know you're weird and you rubber band in reaction here by treating this like some kind of nudist colony for your fixations. Get over it! Or at least keep it to yourself!
Don't try to project YOUR infantilization and pre-pubescence fetishes and straw man fallacies on us by taking the natural,secondary sex characteristics of the adult male and trying to twist it into something deviant and unhealthy.
YOU'RE the one who has the fucked up,hysterical OCD attitude with your conflation of body hair and being unhygienic.
I shave it all off. Not so much for the look, but the feel. The area where the hair grows is extremely sensitive to touch. It arouses the pleasure level quite a bit. Especially when someone kisses that area. Mmmmm...
Okay. I love hair, especially on guys and their pubic bits. I love it. I will say though that it's hot when the submissive guy is SHAVED, like tied up and forced shaved, whimpers and moans as I handle his little tiny cock and balls. And indeed, afterwards he's extra sensitive, especially when I fuck him.
Then I'd kick his ass out and wait until all of the itch hairs grow back before I'll see him again
Hair is usually best
[quote]I'm shaving my balls as I type this
Please, be careful!
I like my natural blush. It makes me look demure and coquettish.
It surely does, while that cock is in your mouth
Wow, how twisted is R125?
I leave my pussy willows as nature intended.
I would never do anything to it, apart from the extensions and highlights.
I'm gay. 37, white guy. 5'11/150 brown hair and eyes. i hate to fuck up anyones stereotype, but i've never shaved or trimmed my bush, and i knew i was gay at like 7 years old.
Hair on your balls prevents them from sticking to your inner thighs. So unlike R10, it is better to leave your balls unshaved in the winter. Unless the bf complains about hair getting between his teeth. Love wins.
I convinced my bf to stop shaving his balls. He used to have his ex do it and was into actually having someone else groom him. I'd rather risk hair on my teeth than do that on a regular basis. It just wasn't the correct hairstyle for his cock.
I'm all for the endless bj giving though, so he's full bush and with me.
natural bush is so beautiful - so erotic, intense to see a man's full pubic patch; no trim/shave needed ever.
