    Just wondering how many of the men here shave their chest hair. I didn't have much until about 5 years ago, but now I'm getting more and I don't like it. Fortunately, my back is pretty much hair-free, some light hair but nothing that's glaringly obvious.

    It's not a lot of hair, like some guy who's a huge hairy gorilla, but still, it's just not "me".

    So once every few months I'd shave it all off, from my neck to my underwear stretch band line area. Feels much better, but I'm somewhat concerned about other people seeing me with a bare chest, because in my mind, it's mostly the kind of thing that only gay men do, even though I see men on tv and in magazines and on the web with bare chests and they're perfectly normal as far as I can tell.

    Are men's shaved chests getting to be more in fashion / style?

    Men, please leave your chest hair alone! You are fine just as you are.

    If your chest looks like Austin Powers' then a little trimming is permissible otherwise leave it alone. :mad:

    While not an option in the survey, I trim my chest hair. Most of it's gone white, and it looks better closely cropped. I still like having chest hair, it's just when it gets a bit long, it makes me feel older than I would like too.

    Every once and awhile, it's helpful to be smooth. Sensibilities have changed since the '70s, and shaving chest hairs and treasure trails is now acceptable. Unless you are a swimmer, don't do it obsessively -- just once every 2 months or so...

    Hi, i'm a beautyspecialist and have a lot of male customers who want to have their chesthair removed permanently, most of them younger people but also a few older men. It's becoming quiet a trend in Holland.
    I personally like to see a man with hair, its certainly more masculine

    You're right! Only gay men shave their chests.
    Hey Randy, you're turning queer.
    That's why I've replied in pink.

    Trim? Yes.
    Shave? No.

    I'm too furry. It's not curly either, and when it get's long it just looks awful. However, when I trim it it looks even and just long enough to be seen without being too noticable under my shirts.

    No man should emulate Chewbacca the Wookie. Every once and awhile, the tufts of fur need to be tamed if you have a lot of hair on your body...

    Nope, I do not shave my chest - the only things I have are my face and my area down there. I'm not a very hairy person at all, I don't have any chest hair anyway, so....lol. I'm suprised I have some leg hair!

    My wife would shoot me if I would take a blade to her playground, and she's already warned me after we watched '40-year-old Virgin.'
