Do you like the hairy chest look or do you prefer manscaping?

Are you man enough for the hairy-chested medallion revival?

The man jewellery and chest hair combo so beloved by the likes of Tom Jones and Tom Selleck now seems to have been taken up with enthusiasm by a younger generation. Perhaps it’s all the fault of Aiden Turner’s shirtless appearance in Poldark.

According to research by Nivea Men in May this year, 64% of men regularly engaged in ‘manscaping’, removing hair from their chest, back, legs or intimate areas.

But now the trend for chest hair is reversing as the season changes, and maybe it’s linked to keeping warm!

So what are your views? Do you prefer the hairy chest look? Have you got a hairy chest? Or do you prefer the more groomed look?

I have always liked a man with a hairy chest. Would never see myself being attracted to a smoothie!

Don't mind hairy chests, it's hairy backs I can't cope with!

As a man with a fine silver mane I would never try to improve it’s appearance with tomfoolery!

As a man with a hairy chest, I don't have a natural choice. I think that for men my age (69), shaving or ''Veeting'' is a pointless affectation akin to a comb-over and the thought of a ''back, sac and crack'' fills me with horror.
The only real downside is the amount of cleaning the shower takes and remembering to inspect the soap before someone else uses it.

I love my husband's hairy chest although I'm not too keen on the moulting in the bathroom

We are too obsessed with looks but having said that I always preferred a non hairy chest - or at least just a modicum of hair. Then I met a guy who I went out with and liked a lot and he had hair on his back as well as is chest but it meant nothing as I liked him so much. I really dislike however having my face rubbed raw by a facial beard and moustache...cannot wait for that fashion to go. Horrible!

My old man has always had a very hairy chest at age 63 he will be delighted to hear it is back in fashion so he can start to wear open neck shirts and medallions again like he did at 20.

Maybe the "other side" are just a little bit jealous that they do not have hairy chests ??
Next we shall hear that it offends the darlings of to-days society.

Don't think I would like to see him shaving all his bits on a daily basis. Prickly seven o'clock shadow is already too much to cope with, like sandpaper on a delicate cheek, the chest must remain hairy.

W..e.eell, maybe it should not be long enough to plait but it does add to the masculine image. On the other hand, my ex had 4 hairs on his chest, very bloke-y and masculine in every aspect.

Doesn't matter to me as long as he is a good person.

If women did not shave their legs, bikini line and under arms many eye brows would be raised and criticism voiced so why is it okay for men to have scruffy hair all all over there body’s? I much prefer to see nice clear skin and I think it is also much cleaner.way to live.

Come to think of it, why can't women be hairy? When did hair become ugly?

I agree with Jeanmark - much prefer to get to know the person instead of judging their looks with one caveat; I really don't like to see a man dripping in jewellery - wedding ring, signet ring fine but not earrings or neck chains! 🙂

I have no preference what so ever, I'm more interested in the man than the chest.

Are you kidding the young males of today are being reduced by the PC brigade to nonentities.
The have taken to growing silly beards to establish that they are.
It well past the time we had positive discrimination towards them.
