A little musk of man is definitely a turn-on, especially if we catch a whiff of it on one of our T-shirts the next day. But whatever it is you were working on does not belong inside of me in any capacity. No need to call our attention to your feet for any reason, so let’s also keep those puppies short and clean. We basically just like to be able to find what we’re looking for.That said, there are men who have completely missed the art of subtlety. No one is saying you need to get a mani/pedi (although that’s not the worst idea), but being on top of the situation will go a long way. And it’s usually a big selling point for us baby-bodied females. Waxed arms, legs, and chests on men belong nowhere unless that place is South Jersey and your name is Pauly, Ronnie, Vinny, or The Situation, and you are on the television for our entertainment. Also anyone who has ever heard, "Take off your sweater," when you were not, in fact, wearing one, may be excused.) We like hair on men, but, like, not TOO much. If your genital area looks like Hagar the Horrible, it's probably too much. We’ve seen that bottle of Lubriderm you keep bedside. Consider rubbing it on other parts of your body so that when we encounter each other naked it’s not like rubbing our boobs on sandpaper. Meagan Drillinger is a contributing writer for Thrillist and still has high school flashbacks when she catches a whiff of Acqua di Gio.
Whatever the reason, let's just say you're not alone.
No matter what your removal method of choice; (Shaving, waxing, depilatories or other) here are some more important facts you should know to improve your body hair removal regimen.
You've gotten an entirely unjustified, bad rap for being "disgusting" creatures. The modern male is up on proper hygiene and genuinely takes pride in his appearance, and we salute you. I don’t know who sent around the memo that chicks dig a dude with a tiny, absorbent, square-sized patch of hair 'neath their bottom lip, but shame on that person. Nothing that is nicknamed a "flavor saver" should be on any part of your body. Nothing like going in for a wet one and tasting exactly what you had for lunch. Don’t get me wrong -- it’s hot to be with a man who likes to work with his hands and get them a dirty. Which carries us into toenails, body parts that ought to remain as inconspicuous as possible. Pubic hair on a man is not as controversial a topic as it is on women.
Choose a gentle formula - you don’t want dry or irritated skin after you wash up. Pulling and dragging at your skin to dry will only lead to premature wrinkles.
Follow up with a quick application of natural face moisturizer for men.
