Laser treatment on your under arm hair!

Nowadays, we’re all so busy, running around after the kids, heading out to work or rushing to the next event that we sometimes just plain forget to have our under arm hair removed.

Is your body hair turning women off?

As I was surfing the web I came across an interesting recent study from Finnish psychologists at the University of Turku where they were trying to find out how women reacted to hairy male bodies.

They discovered young women in the fertile phase of their menstrual cycle found body hair the least attractive.

The study went on to find that young women who were actually pregnant or in a non-fertile phase of their cycle found body hair more attractive and women who were in menopause and could no longer become pregnant also had no problem with body hair on Men.

If you believe in evolution and believe therefore that women will choose men who can provide strong offspring, then you’d expect fertile women to go for men with hairy bodies.

But in saying that if you look at all the magazines, movies and TV programmes in today’s world aimed at young women, the male bodies that are shown hardly portray hairy Men.

This would suggest why younger women actually prefer men without body hair. What we do know for sure is that Men who choose to remove hair from their bodies are doing it either for hygienic purposes, better muscle definition or because their sport requires them to be hair free.

So the quest for Men being hair free continues!

 Which do you prefer, hairy or hair free?
