    I have a question: How come some people have hairy legs, but not a hairy chest at all? Is it more in the genes or something? As for me, I am hairy and that's inherited from dad's side, so I look like a 70s throwback a bit with the exception of my hands and face. But how come there are guys, actors, or whatever that have hairy legs, but not a hairy chest. Could it be possible for some men to wax those on the torso and chest, but not their legs? Just curious to know.

    Friend of mine is the same way. Hairy legs but just a sparse and tiny patch on his breastbone.

    I have somewhat hairy legs and like... literally 10 nearly invisible hairs around my nipples. All genetic weirdness. o_O

    I don't have a full spread of chest hair. I have leg hair. I have some on my forearms. Some on my belly. :smile:

    I also vote "Yes" on hairy legs and smooth torso.

    What do we win?

    legs are hairy but just a little patch on the middle of my chest and a light treasure trail - otherwise pretty much hairless above the waist.

    Also moderately hairy below, and smooth above.

    There are guys with chest hair who are otherwise smooth.

    Strangely enough, only me and one of my brothers seem to be the only people in our entire family that we know of with hairy chests :S .

    I have a full head of hair! Its thick and no receding hairline will I ever have. But as for facial hair I do not have enough hairs to fill in a beard, not even a 'stache, and the few hairs that are there are to thin and whispy. I shave maybe every 4 days if needed. I have a few chest hairs up near my neck... Peach fuzz on the limbs.
    I have a friend who is growing a fricken pelt on his front and back... Hes a fricken neandertal throwback..

    My legs are hairy, chest hair was minimal until abt mid 20's. It started growing then and now have chest & stomach hair-fairly heavy.

    You guys in your early 20's don't despair-chest hair could be on its way!!

    I know. I just find it interesting. There always some guys that have hairy legs and below the waist, but right up top, it's like smooth as a baby's bottom. I just find it interesting. I just don't have that ability to be smooth on top.

    I've heard guys with hairy bottom half but smooth top half referred to as "centaurs."

    Cute.

    Same here. I think it's a fairly common hair pattern. Most guys have at least moderately hairy legs (although obviously some don't), but a hairy upper body is less common.

    Me too. My friend could barely grow a beard. Given his tremendous sex drive, we used to joke that all his testosterone remained below the waist.

    Yeah, I find it sort of fascinating, but I've always been drawn to incongruity. I'm very attracted to guys with hairy legs who are relatively smooth on top.

    I didn't know there was a name for it. Appartently I'm into centaurs.

    Wouldn't it make more sense to call them fauns? :confused:
