Some people like their men smooth faced and bare-chested. And when I say bare chest, I mean chests as smooth as a Greek statue. Some of us…. But not all of us!
Some of us like a bearded man. A manly man. I’ve said it before and I will say it again. There is a name for people without facial hair: Women.
Okay! Just kidding! Different strokes for different folks. I like my men hairy. Not just facial fur. But furry all over! I think it is something hardwired. I read once that we actually sexually impress at a very young age, or formative years in their teens. And big burly hairy men came to represent manly-men since I was a quite young. Charleston Heston from Planet of the Apes. Sean Connery from the James Bond films. Lloyd Bridges in Sea Hunt. Robert West in The Wild, Wild West. Paul Michael Glaser in Starsky and Hutch (O…M…G…!). And especially Dirk Benedict from Sssssss.
Hair came to represent “man” to me, while smooth came to represent “woman” to me—Farrah Fawcett-Majors in Logan’s Run and Charlie’s Angels, Bo Derek from 10. Lindsay Wagner from The Bionic Woman.
Whatever the reason (and does it really matter?) I like men with furry faces. And fur all over…
Yes! Don’t forget to vote!
