Is The End Of The Hairy Man Nigh?

During the ascent of the now pervasive male hipster style, we’ve fretted over mustaches gone wild, and hemmed and hawed over Galifianakis-ish hirsuteness. But men who remove all that hair are coming out of the closet, with a little help from grooming marketers, says The New York Times. Will the increasing popularity of manscaping (Diddy and Jay-Z are already converts) foretell the doom of dude body hair as we know it?! Leading up to the summer months, the shaving company Gillette debuted YouTube videos that teach men how to shave their backs, chests, pits and even their groin areas. Braun also sells a precision trimmer with a Gillette blade. And Nivea has posted “shaving tutorial” videos that teach men how to shave below their necklines with Active3 shower gel. (Just show me a woman who doesn’t think the one teaching men how to shave the hair on their breasts is painful to watch!)

In that case, you’d best hop, skip and jump over to our Nerd Girl Porn slideshow of hairy-chested hotties, before they all go extinct. But first, what’s your take? Do you like to run your fingers through a maze of man fur or do you prefer a smooth dude?[The New York Times]
