What’s the deal with ‘Manscaping’ ?

Sat Jul 25, 2020 10:24 pm

Curious as to how this got started and seems to be very popular


It seems that today’s younger male generation like to remove most if not all bodily hair


Women too, in intimate areas, which I also don’t care much for, but do they really prefer hairless males ?



It’s funny when you look back at the ‘70’s and ‘80’s when the open shirt, hairy chest look was all the rage


I’m dating myself with this post of course but I wonder how we got here, especially interested in women’s take on this !

I think we were slowly introduced to in during the 1980s. I think, lately, it is so men can show off muscles. Although, I have seen some bears with muscles. Anymore, I think it is personal preference and partly discussions with partners.

Manscaping is odd, but it certainly beats nutscaping. Beware that google search :lol:

Good grief, every single ad I get online and one TV is by "manscaped"
Instead of typing in "mods", consider using the report function.

The fascination with / practice of shaving all the hair off of one's naughty bits got started by the people who made a living showing off their naughty bits back in the 70s, but most people didn't go overboard with it until the mid-80s or so.

Manscaping isnt being hairless. Its like a haircut for your body. No problem with shaving/ trimming the privates imo

If it's going to be done at all, it should not be obvious, IMHO. Trimming over-long pubic hair is fine as long as it's in proportion with hair on the rest of the body. If it's not it just looks ridiculous.

I couldn't have put it better myself. As with the plucking/shaving of eyebrows or the dyeing of hair, if I can tell that you've done it, especially at a glance or from more than ten feet away, then you've overdone it.

Wadrs, I just don’t get it, your body, as a male doesn’t need a haircut, other than shaving your face if you like although that’s not ‘needed’


I get Women shaving their legs and their arm pits that’s obviously a big plus in attractiveness but men trimming or removing their body hair is entirely different



It seems they’re almost trying to look more feminine ?


I dont think we’ve had any women reply to this thread yet and I’m very curious as to their opinion on this

Speaking as a gay man, I am a big fan of secondary sex characteristics, including secondary sexual hair.

That said, facial shaving and haircuts are pretty standard, but routine grooming below the neck in western men is relatively new.

If you could clarify a bit, upon which side of the beard fascination do you stand: Those who think everyone should be scrupulously shaved, three times a day if necessary, in a quixotic attempt to convince the world that your face is as smooth and hairless as a baby's bottom, or those who think that a man who does not proudly display at least some facial hair is indeed no man at all? Admittedly those are two extremes, but my own feelings on the matter are closer to the latter than the former, mainly because kissing a guy who is clean-shaven is too much like kissing a girl for my comfort so the more facial hair on a man the better, I say.

I personally don’t want a giant bush down south, and women appreciate that. Not clean shaven, but trimmed for sure. I didn’t think this was new or a trend, I just thought that’s what most people do. To be fair I go to nude beaches a few times a year, and I don’t stare at other people but over all it seems the vast majority trim.

My guess is for the same reason guys do, or at least used to, carry that same unopened and unused condom in their wallet from eighth grade all the way though college or beyond- Just... in... case. :pray:

What baffles me about the current fascination with manscaping, especially when that means shaving the area bare, is why wait ten or fifteen years to finally grow hair there and thus have tangible proof if none other is available that you're not a little kid any more only to eradicate that proof and retain the same hairless look you've been sporting since before you were able to walk? I genuinely don't get it.

Probably for the same reason many young women depilate.

To avoid getting banned, I'll let wiki put it into words.

At 17 it might be for a sexual partner, or an imagined sexual partner. It doesn't actually matter, just as long as it makes you feel good about yourself.

I don't know about others at that age, but by the time I was 17 there were at least a couple of things available to demonstrate I wasn't a little boy anymore.
First hint; "not little anymore"
Second hint; "a couple of things"

Obviously if you aren't blessed in that department, then hiding the deficit in a mass of undergrowth is probably your best option.

Growing up, I used to be into manscaping. I'd trim (not shave) my legs, chest, underarms, and back. It was really nice to feel water running down your skin instead of your hair. Of course, seeing that not many men can grow a full pelt of chest hair, I've noticed that I draw more attention with a hairy body than with a manscaped one. And as a gay man, even gay culture (which used to be fascinated with hairless body) is returning to appreciating body hair.

I have manscaped for a couple of reasons. One is because a girl I used to date didn't like any hair below the neck on guys she was dating. Another reason is with me personally, I have found that hair gets in the way and creates some discomfort when engaged in intimate acts, and maintaining that feels better in general, and leads to better sensations while engaged in intimate acts.

I find the gay man perspective on this interesting and a bit surprising. That being said, I have talked to a bunch of women and most women want their men to do some sort of grooming down there, as it makes it look better, and it doesn't get in the way during certain intimate acts.

As a side note, I listen to Mad Dog sports radio often in my car, and Manscape is a big advertiser on that network.

I think a moderate amount of trimming is the way to go for both men and women.

I've raised the topic with a few females and they say there is a lot of peer pressure to go clean shaven, both in the pits and underneath. Kind of a shame since I think the hair is there for a reason and all that should be needed is a bit of tidying up.

I hope we don't get to a place where men react to peer pressure all the time. IMO guys are more comfortable telling another guy to sod off without fear of losing the friendship, yet over time it seems men are getting more brittle. Hope we don't lose our resilience!

Like many I let my facial hair grow during COVID quarantining. I have resisted in the past since it grew out partially gray whereas my other hair is still not gray. These days I'm accepting that I'm in the age group where grayness is gonna happen so I might as well start letting it show via the facial hair. So far the comments I get have been positive, but I'm not sure the people making the comments are unbiased.

I started with a full beard but IMO that made my face look fat so I trimmed the sides off and left a mustache+goatee. I think it's an overall improvement. I think the facial hair does give me more distinction. I think the touches of grayness adds some character.

As someone new to facial hair I do wish I had some good guidance on trimming. I've done some youtube searches but the stuff I found were aiming at people doing the full lumberjack beard thing.

I do hate the fact that manscaping ads are all over the place these days.

It's interesting how YOU have to change for her, but she didn't. If I ever met someone who said "can you shave? I don't like body hair", I'd dump them right there. If I manscape, it's for myself.

Imagine if your partner is kissing you on your chest but you have a very hairy chest. Or your partner is giving you oral and your bush is overgrown. There's nothing so offputting than pausing your act to spit out hairs. And based on what I've seen, the average American is not too gifted down there so it'll be closer to the bush which increases the chance that hair will be involved in anything down there.

Exactly, I find Women who retain their hair, other than armpits, much more attractive, it is far more ‘womenly’ to me, even retaining a small, trimmed intimate area



I think this is really a generational thing, there’s also the unfounded belief that shaving off all genital hair is cleaner and makes you less susceptible to STD’s in fact the opposite is true, the end result of shaving itself leaves the area more open and vulnerable

There seems to be a common misconception among younger folks that hair=dirty, which of course is not true, so just to mess with them I like to point out that the hair on top of their head is made of hair too.

I've only been clean shaven from the ear, down 4 times in my life, for my district and region swim meets in high school. Nothing felt more like a big meet than jumping in for the warm up totally shaven wearing your special material suit that's supposed to be 2 sizes too small.

I became a pretty hairy guy over the years and after 12th grade I decided all that shaving work wasn't worth it.

To be fair, she herself shaved, and she just hates Pubic Hair in general. And interestingly enough, you actually make the same argument that I hear a lot of women make about shaving, particularly those who don't shave. One thing I will note is that just because of nature, if a woman wants a man to shave, he will probably do it because he things it will make it more likely to get him sex. The same is not true in inverse.

I am not surprised at the dirty mind part. What I was surprised by is I felt manscaping would be a very common trend among Gay Men, and it may not be as common as I think. As for Dirty Minds, well I expect that even among most Heterosexuals, and homosexuals are a given :)

It was a big trend among gay men for quite a while, ramping up in the 80s and peaking in the mid to late 90s, but as with so many other trends once it started becoming mainstream that was taken as a clear sign it was time to give it up. Also, not all of us were on board with manscaping to begin with: The "Bear" movement arose and gained popularity in part as a backlash against all the depictions of the "ideal" gay man being someone who was freakishly (and artificially if necessary) lozenge-smooth that were aimed at us in media of the time.

I guess both. I have a large scruffy half beard, I may scrape it off in the next day or seven, or I may just let it go until I look like a homeless man on a street corner. I will say though that when I have a girlfriend I keep my face smooth as a baby's butt so I don't chafe her thighs.

I was watching comedian Sarah Millican on u2b and she had a good answer for how she womanscapes: "I have just enough hair down there to put a pedophile off!".
Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world
The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings
The heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own

It is Seb's unique term for his "significant other"/partner, as first mentioned here- https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1306529&p=18298829&hilit=brosband#p18298829

I like pubic hair "Adolf" style.

That style is known as the "Landing Strip". That name is a bit of a misnomer because when you think about it a real landing strip is a cleared area amongst forest or at least undergrowth whereas a "Landing Strip" in a personal grooming context is the last remaining strip of forest in an area that has been clear-cut, but I suppose the more technically accurate terms "Vertical Hedge" or "Mons Mohawk" just don't have quite the same ring to them.
