Manscaping: Yay or Nay?

A recent Cosmo article discussed the popular male trend of manscaping. That is, a man grooming his…hair-eas (ex.: backs, chests, butts and the lower frontal regions). Yep, a recent poll conducted by Cosmo in conjunction with askmen.com revealed that 95% of men admitted to manscaping!

The article goes on to say that in an age of ever-evolving acceptance and the introduction of the word metrosexual, men feel more comfortable than ever, and moreover, more encouraged to step it up in the grooming department. What would have once been considered feminine is now the norm, though many men are opting to do it themselves as opposed to getting it professionally done via waxing or the like.

Personally, I’m okay with the trend. While a completely hair-free guy definitely seems less masculine, a well groomed one is nothing to complain about. Similarly, while I don’t want my man to get a mani/pedi with me weekly, an occasional one to keep his nails looking clean is fine. Some dudes who do opt for professional grooming services were outed as requesting certain logos or pictures waxed into (or out of) their hair, which is not okay with me.

    I love it that my boyfriend manscapes a little, but if he were as hairless as a small child…no thanks. I work with kids. I don’t want to date one.

    You don’t know how nice it is until you’ve had it. Manscaping is nice, to an extent…. meaning do not wax your eyebrows and go to the hair/nail salon with me. You wanna shave/trim things up, awesome.

    YAY!!!!! Manscaping is great!! I don’t like super hairy men – especially the armpits. I ‘m not saying wax it completely off – but trim it so that the deodorant isn’t clumped in it. I draw the line at waxing eyebrows!
