Women Manscaping Their Dudes Is Now A Thing

Because Matthew McConaughey is naturally hairless? Yeah, right.

Because Matthew McConaughey is naturally hairless? Yeah, right.

As much as I’m not a fan of chest hair, I think I’d prefer my dude to have it instead of waxing it. I’m not opposed to the idea of a man waxing anything, but if he were to do it just because of what I think is hot, I’d probably be annoyed. I, myself, am a waxer of my nether region, but that has nothing to do with what men find attractive, and everything to do with the fact that I just don’t like hair “down there.” In fact, I really don’t like body hair, on men or women, in general.

So, if my man were to ask me to help him in this area, say, perhaps, by putting some wax all up in his ass crack then pulling out all that hair, my reaction, without even the slightest hesitation would be, “What the fucking fuck? Do it yourself, dude.” I don’t think this displays a lack of love or even a disinterest in helping him achieve whatever he thinks is physically awesome, but I just don’t foresee it being my scene. Ever.

But apparently, I’m a big selfish jerk.

A recent survey (of over 2,000 men) taken by a U.K. company found that 53% of them have a partner who’s willing to help them in maintaining that flawless (and often hairless) look that seems to be all the rage these days. I’m not really sure if I start growing whiskers when I’m 80 years old, I’ll be asking my love to help in the removal of them, but I guess I can’t say for sure. Maybe?

Of the men who took the survey, 49% of them had woman willing to pluck their nose hairs, 11% had ladies, who obviously are really devoted to the manscaping cause by actually going down under to trim their pubes, and 23% were all for helping in removing of callouses. Now, for some reason, callouses seems much easier on the stomach for me, but I’m also the girl who’d be first in line to pop anyone’s blister. BLISTERS FOR ME. ALL FOR ME.

First of all, who’s dating a manscaper out there? How do you feel about it? Do you take to his balls with some store-bought wax and make them as hairless as an infant every six weeks? Was it wrong to bring infants into this? What does chest stubble feel like?
I’m curious. We’re all curious, so let us know.

    Okay, I would really say no to doing this on a regular basis, but I once had to go over to my boyfriend’s place in the middle of the night and completely shave the upper half of his body so he could be painted with liquid latex the next day. I consider it very lucky that we were both very fond/tolerant of one another.

    Side note: I had a dude completely shave his pubes SPECIFICALLY FOR ME once. I almost burst out laughing. I mean, really, I don’t care if they’re shaved or not, but he was so pleased with himself and kept looking at me like, “You like it? Well, do you?”. (Side side note: now I feel like a jerk for laughing at him.)

    Chest stubble feels like face stubble, on your chest. What if your dude needed help waxing his back? We can’t reach our own back Amanda!

    I agree with not being fond of body hair. Or facial hair. If a guy wants to wax himself, it’s his choice, same as if he doesn’t. But I don’t think I’d ever help a guy wax his buttcrack, unless maybe it was his first time doing it and I was in the mood to laugh hysterically as he realizes exactly how much it hurts.

    I help my husband do minor things like, tweezing the random long hairs on his shoulder that he hates, inspecting beard lines for evenness, etc… But he would never ask me to wax him, and I wouldn’t do it either. I like him hairy in some places and not in others, which is mostly how it grows. But, we live in Germnay, and almost %100 of the dudes here shave/ wax EVERYTHING. I find it very unattractive.

    I guess I could give my dude a hand if it was a one time thing or special occasion, but I’m not annoyed by his body hair. Idk, maybe If he asked in a really cute way, I might help him with his chest hair, but down there is another story.

    I don’t even like having other people waxing me, I learnt how to do it when I was around 15 years old (I did a mess every single time, but on my own) and when I lasered it, I wasn’t thrilled of someone else removing my body hair.
