    I have issues with hairy men!
    If their legs/arms/back/chest/armpits are too hairy it's a no-go zone...
    I should probably date a swimmer =D

    But then again, I'd rather all hair was just neatly trimmed or naturally short rather than them shaving it!

    urm it's a little bit odd...but i guess if every guy did it, it wouldnt be so odd anymore....

    Why?

    I sometime shave/trim the hair as it will stop me from sweating so much and not cause the moisture to collect and cause sweat patches.

    i don't seel a problem with it.....though if a guy was to do that i think that they'd have to fix up the rest of the arm (forearm, hands, knuckles, etc) as well.

    Trimming, maybe - I can see the advantage from the perspective of hygeine but shaving all the hair off? Odd. Would weird me out a lil.

    My bodybuilder ex always shaved his armpits as it got him too sweaty and icky when he was lifting. My (non bodybuilder) current boyfriend used to shave his armpits too, and I'm not really sure why... It's just a bit cleaner I suppose.

    Thats not true... otherwise all women who shave their underarms wouldn't get sweat patches which is clearly not the case.

    Just use an anti-perspirant if sweating is the problem.

    I do use it, but shaving/trimming helps too. If I didn't do it, I usually sweat more.

    To be honest, armpits are the only part in a man's body I can't stand with 20cm hair grown on them! If there is some hair, ok, leave it, it doesn't look that bad. But if they are just too long, it's an issue to me personally.

    I'm the same except i pluck my hair using my hands.

    It is ****ing painful but I like to believe that it'll tone down my sweating plus i don't want my hair to come back growing bushy and rough.

    I'm a dude..

    The glands that produce sweat and sebum are located at the base of the hair follicle. Thus, if there is no hair for these secretions to lubricate, less sweat and sebum are secreted... basically: no hair=less chance of smell
