Do you like facial hair?

I abhor hair of any kind but especially facial hair. I think it makes men look really ugly; I think it's been equated with masculinity in the past but oh my god, it makes guys look so dirty and icky. Thoughts?

I love the shaves-twice-a-week look, but generally find a full moustache and beard unsexy. There are exceptions, to be sure (Colby Keller comes to mind).

Beards are very trendy now. In a few years the vogue will be clean shaven.

I don't like Henry Cavill bearded. He looks like any Joe Schmoe on any cul-de-sac in Flyovia with a beard. Without, he's (almost) worth starting a dozen threads over.

I wish Jake would shave. I wish Jake would let me shave him. I don't think I could finish it without coming.

hmmm for me, facial hair on a guy depends on his face. Some guys look hot with it, others don't. The other thing is IT NEEDS TO BE KEPT NEAT!! Trim that damn thing down. If the hair is too long or thick, that's not hot and doesn't feel good. 1 time I got rimmed by a guy who let his beard grow and it did not feel good. That hair was itchy as hell.

Love facial hair on most guys, thought not too long. So masculine and sexy. I keep a trim beard myself, I wish it would grow in thicker. I like all body hair. Facial hair and body hair can make an Average Joe extremely sexy.

Definitely a huge fan of facial hair. I love that all the young guys are into it and wearing beards again. I like clean shaven, too, but a mustache, goatee or full beard all turn me on. I think it's just a personal preference thing.

Mmmmmmm, yes!

by Anonymousreply 1807/04/2013

It really depends on the wearer. Some men have faces that are nicely framed by a beard, especially if they have nice cheekbones. It can be incredibly sexy. Also, some men have beards that don't come in well; the hair is a bad texture or the growth is patchy or inconsistent. They should avoid. Keeping it neatly trimmed and the mustache out of the lips is a must.

[quote]Can't stand hipster beards

WTF is a "hipster beard"? Is it a type of beard that has never before been in existence? Something new? Please, enlighten me.

by Anonymousreply 2307/05/2013

OP is delusional.

Men with scruff are WAY sexier than smooth/shaved men. Ditto chest hair.

Unruly grown-out beards are gross, but nicely trimmed, short, and/or 5 o'clock shadow scruff are sexy as hell.

That said, I think balls and asses should be as smooth as possible (along with backs and upper arms).

by Anonymousreply 2407/05/2013

OP? Did it occur to you that many of us might have facial hair? Or did you imagine you were addressing a convention of The Hairless Fembots Society of America, sponsored by Nair?

That said, everyone has their preferences. Naturally smooth guys are great, but they are not "hairless". I think most guys look good in their natural state, but if you're particularly hairy, a little trim is a good thing. Male bodies where every hair has been removed looks and feels unnatural. Stubble is worse.

Facial hair is fine as long as it is groomed and trimmed to some degree (not necessarily clipper-short) and follows a traditional beard pattern. I can't stand those weirdos who carve their beard up into angular sideburns and triangular goatees with weird indents and shaved patterns.

I got stopped in a store recently by an old guy, maybe 75+, and he pronounced my beard, "Magnificent!"

However, I don't mind a guy hairy on his upper arms, chest, balls or ass. Just his face should be shaved, IMO.

by Anonymousreply 3608/19/2013

I think it's really ugly. I hate seeing celebrities with stubble on their faces. It's going on all the time. For example NATE BERKUS. Can someone show him how to use a razor? And then Kimmel and Jimmy Fallen were on sporting face hair.

I think men who are paranoid and/or feel threatened about their masculinity are growing facial hair to try to look "manly" or macho.

It really looks like SLOB. Men should shave every day to present themselves as well-groomed. Men who don't shave are sterotypical BUMS.

R37 - that's one of the most ridiculous posts I have read here in a long time. And that's saying a lot!

I agree with R38, the long, scraggly unkempt beards aren't so hot. The one at R32 is about as long as I, personally, like. It helps that it's attached to a hot guy. Then again, if a guy is "homely", a beard will take a "4" to a solid "7" in my book.

I think people somehow think beards to be dirty, smelly, whatever. Not at all! The nice beards are sexy, and smell like a walk in the forest!

Only someone incredibly immature would make statements like those above. If you don't like it, that's a preference, but the remarks are sadly juvenile.

For the record, I find both looks (clean shaven *and* bearded) pretty hot, depending on the guy. I like the guy at R45 MUCH better with facial hair.

A beard doesn't make one look "rugged and masculine" anymore than being clean shaven makes you look like a twink.

So many nelly, hairless prisspots on this thread! Most of you sound an estrogen shot away from fully transitioning.

Besides that, you sound ridiculously old fashioned, and just plain OLD. It's not the 50s anymore. Most guys don't aspire to be square-jawed, clean-cut, corporate-ready everymen who look like they just stepped off the cover of The Saturday Evening Post. Personal style and expression have been definitive components of manhood for decades now. Clutching your pearls and crying out "SLOB!" or "BUM!" at the thought of a bearded man makes you sound ridiculously out of touch. You might as well be railing against wearing "short pants" or forgoing a hat in public.

FWIW I took an informal poll of my straight male friends and asked them if they would consider letting a guy blow them if they didn't know it was a guy.

Invariably, the answer was, "NO!"

When I asked, "Why? It isn't like you'd know it was a guy."

Every single one of them said, "facial hair".

So take that as you will but if you'd like to suck some straight dick, lose the facial hair.

[quote]Facial hair makes you look older. Who would want that?

What a stupid question. I'm 45 and don't look my age (fuck off if you don't believe me). I have a weak jaw and a round face so without facial hair I look creepily boyish and moon-faced. Facial hair defines my jaw, masculinizes my features and just makes me look a lot more handsome. And I still don't look my age with it.

Lots of aging guys with sagging jowls, double chins and turkey necks benefit from the camouflage that a beard provides. Guys of all ages with weak jaws or chins also benefit. Honestly, the man whose looks don't improve with decent facial hair are few. I'm not counting straggly or shaggy beards; you have to be able to grow a full beard and keep it trimmed and neat. But most men who can do that look better with facial hair.

And I love all the body hair too.

Bummed I wasn't old enough in the 70's when body hair and facial hair ruled the day. I was only 15 in 1978 and was in lust with Barry Gibb, who I jerked off to daily. By the time I hit my 20's, all the guys decided shaving and tweezing was the way to go. And, it hasn't stopped!

by Anonymousreply 7308/22/2013

So, r70, you're saying it's useful for a beard to be like a mask to hide your ugly features behind? Sort of like wearing a paper bag over your head?

[quote]So, [R70], you're saying it's useful for a beard to be like a mask to hide your ugly features behind? Sort of like wearing a paper bag over your head?

Does being nasty and juvenile like this make you feel better about your life? You're obviously quite miserable if you spend this much time insulting strangers in a thread about something you claim to hate.

BTW, I'm not ugly. No, you won't believe me and I don't care. I'm 45 and a hot daddy who gets attention from 20-somethings all the time. In fact that's how I found out I was a "hot daddy", because so many young guys would describe me that way. Then I'd have to tell them, after thanking them for the compliment, that I'm really only into guys around my age. So being or even appearing young is not the greatest thing in the world to some of us. Maybe you should broaden your horizons a bit. You sound very sheltered, shallow and naïve.

I find it laughable that you attack me for accentuating my good features and down-playing my bad ones. How asinine can you be? This is what everyone does from the most homely of people to celebrities and models. Are you telling us that you're so perfect and dewy and beautiful that you have no need for grooming or planning a wardrobe? That you look good in anything, anywhere, at any time? You have not a single flaw or body quirk that you'd wish to change or hide or distract from? Is this why you're so disgusted by my admission that I have "a weak jaw and a round face"?

People like you never age well. I've seen it thousands of times in Gayland, the aging pretty boy who can't cope, becomes bitter, desperate and angry. They dye their hair, get bad plastic surgery, dress like 22 year-olds and delude themselves that they're fooling everyone. When its inevitably demonstrated that their freshness date has passed, they really go nasty, every word out of their mouths dripping with condescension, meanness and spite. This is how bitter old queens are made. You seem like you're already well on your way.

Can't wait for your reply to this. You're clearly obsessed with this thread for some reason.
