While I always love to read the advice Wendy gives out in her “Dear Wendy” column, I was sort of surprised by the number of responses her column yesterday received. Who knew people could get so worked up over body hair? But I guess I shouldn’t be so shocked — just look at the number of hair removal products on the market. Like the Smooth Away, which I road-tested last night while watching TV. Keep reading »
Poor Levi Johnston. He’s fending off complaints from those (us included) who are disappointed he didn’t show the full monty in his Playgirl pictorial, and now he has to contend with insults about the amount of body hair he has. Nathan Minor, a Chippendales dancer (so he obviously knows what’s manly and sexy), told Us Weekly:
“The only problem — his hairy armpits! We take only mostly shaved guys. He should also focus on his diet to help him get a bit harder. He doesn’t have to go the fitness-y hard look, but he could tighten up a little bit. His body is a little soft.”

Checking out those crazy shoes? Now just look up a bit, a bit more … ahh! The offender! Hippie hair on model legs! Normally, we’d shrug and say your choice (maybe not the wisest one for your profession) to those who prefer to grow it rather than mow it, but this was spotted at the Proenza Schouler runway show at New York Fashion Week, where the freshly-waxed legs of models shine like the top of the Chrysler Building. On purpose or laziness? Yesterday we discussed the all-bare bikini area trend, so maybe the opposite is now going for legs. It’s so hard to keep up.
We’re not sure—this insider-y snap was the only evidence we could find. Many of the other Proenza Schouler models sported tights. However, the collection did happen to have quite a few feather and fringe details. Artistic compatibility? [FashionIndie.com] Keep reading »
Do you wax away your lady ‘stache? Well, that is a mistake my friend, because you could be a superstar on WomenWithMustaches.com. Do not deny the world your womanly Tom Selleck anymore! You too can become an internet sensation by submitting your own fuzzy foto to the site, not to mention save some dough on pricey trips to the salon. And girl, with one hot shot, you could ask the whole world, “Wanna go for a mustache ride?” [via Trend Hunter]

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?! Keep reading »
Is your dude a lily-white, hair-free geek — and you’d rather he more closely resemble the guido next door? Don’t worry, girlfriend. The man bib will turn your guy from a dud to a stud! Created as part of an Australian ad campaign for Solo soda, the dude dickey gives the impression its wearer is tanner than George Hamilton and built like the Terminator. Apparently, Solo isn’t the first one to come out with an idea that puts hair on a man’s chest. Walter Van Beirendonck’s hairshirt gives its wearer that all over hirsute look. Of course, there are limitations to trying to put hair where it’s not. When you get home, and he takes off his dude bib or fursuit, you’re left with the guy you got. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
We all have insecurities don’t we? When I was a teenager, I was hit with a triple dose of the fuglies, getting glasses, braces, and a raging case of acne within a two month period. I don’t think the insecurity that arose during that time has ever gone away completely, though now I worry more about my muffin top than I do about my skin. That said, some women obsess way too much about their so-called “imperfections”. But what about dudes? Do they spend hours starring in the mirror, willing the gigantic whiteheads between their brows to go away? I decided to ask the guys on my IM about men and body insecurities. When none of them brought up the size of their penis, I, of course, asked. Keep reading »
Do guys REALLY care if you aren’t waxed or shaved down there? — Razor Ready, Virginia Beach, VA
I think women’s vaginas are like men’s faces. You’ve basically got three options: The clean-shaven, the week’s worth of stubble, or the mountain-man variety. At the end of the day, it’s all about preference. You might like your man with a baby-smooth face. He might want you to look like a tumble weed and call him mommy during sex. The bottom line is, everybody is different.
Whatever option you go with, I think it’s safe to say your landscaping habits are not going to prevent guys from having sex with you. As long as a guy doesn’t need a degree in bushwhacking to date you, I’m pretty sure you’ll get lucky.
