Do you alter your natural bush?

Many say it is a gay thing, is it a DL thing.

Let's do a poll and see who does what.

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.

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!

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:

It's expected

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.

by Anonymousreply 5407/17/2013

[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.

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?

"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.

by Anonymousreply 6407/17/2013

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.

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 9409/19/2013

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

by Anonymousreply 14212/10/2013

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.
