    I always wondered this. I identify as mostly straight with a side of bicurious:redface: and I ALWAYS notice when a guy is exposing his armpit hair but i think its because I have a pit fetish and my pit radar picks up everything lol but I wanted to know if guys who consider themselves straight ever even notice another guys armpit hair?

    Example: @ the gym: Guy with hairy armpits stretching or doing pull up and exposing his pit hair

    Me: Notices the hair and moves to a different machine to get a better view of the pit hair.

    Straight(Mostly lol) guy friend: Dude..........where are you going?

    Me: O I just got tired of doing sit ups and want to do pull ups now.

    Straight freind: uh alright......I guess.......you know you only 3 sit ups right.

    Me : yeah but i really think i should do pull ups right now

    Straight friend has no idea why i need to do pull ups at that exact moment.

    I don't notice at all. It is just something natural that I don't give a rip about

    I doubt this has something to do with what preference you have.. since you yourself say you're mostly straight and still enjoy it. I'm (totally) gay and I say; Euuuuwwww. ;P

    Probably more a fetish thing like you mentioned.

    I do observe...but only to calculate what the median amount of armpit hair is for men this season and styling mine accordingly.

    I have eyes. They observe things. I notice arm pit hair when it's sticking out. I also notice a lack of armpit hair if someone shaves. I however, do not move my position to get a better view of such things.

    Notice? It's sometimes difficult not to (see pic, or your own pits, Hot97, which I have lusted for since the first time I saw them).

    I do, I think for me, because I shave.

    I do - but I'm definitely a bit fixated on body hair. I'm not very hairy and what I have is (to me) not attractive: wiry, patchy chest hair. Wiry, curly but not very dense pubes. Long, but wispy pit hair. Which is why I shave chest and arms - and keep pubes shaved or trimmed quite short. So I do sometimes find myself looking at other guys' hair - comparing theirs to mine. But I wouldn't cross the room for a better view.

    And I guess my friends must notice other guys' body hair - or lack thereof, because they razz me about my shaved arms and chest. If they ever saw me pubeless, I'd bet they'd have a field day about that too ;-)

    Yes I notice, it totally grosses me out tbh. I don't really like hairy bodies.

    I had no idea there were seasonal trends on armpit hair...

    Nope, I don't really think about armpit hair, if I even consciously notice it.

    I don't like armpit hair in general.

    The trend has been for less body hair not more and guys respond appropriately. So I would say yes either consciously or unconsciously.

    Ugh, armpit hair is such a turn off for me. I'm getting to a point where I'm getting indifferent to it, it is what it is. But I still much prefer none than it being there.

    I'd only notice armpit hair if something unusual had been done to it (dyed, plaited etc.).

    No, unless there's something obviously weird going on.

    Can't say that I have ever wanted to see it. I have noticed if a dude had really thick or long pit hair. I would say that it is only an oddity to me. I feel the same way about body hair on men in general.

    I do notice it when it's used as a comb over to cover the owner's balding pate. Few guys can pull that off without looking silly.
