95% of Men Manscape
Cosmopolitan, the know-all magazine when it comes to metrosexuality, has delighted women everywhere with the results of a “non-scientific” study around men’s grooming habits: around 95% of men (gay and hetero) now conduct some type of manscaping:
Turns out, a whopping 95% say they manscape to some degree. Of course, that could mean anything from trimming the hair growing out of their nose before it reaches their sideburns to the full Powder look. Anecdotally, though, it seems as if most of the bro-mans are taking the clippers South of the Border:
Men go as far as to say it’s weird when they find out one of their buddies doesn’t prune his pubic hair. “On a spring-break trip with my boys, I noticed that one guy in our group had what looked like a bush that was trying to escape from his swim trunks,” says Tunde, 27. “I told him to look around at the rest of us — no one else had anything like that going on. By the next day, he had shaved.”
As it became okay for men to wear things like designer jeans and use high-end lotions and gels, they started to tend more to their body hair. Women noticed and liked it — which set fire to the trend and sent the clippers heading south. “I ask every guy at my salon why he came in,” Pham says. “If he’s straight, it’s always, always to make his pubic area more…appetizing…to his girlfriend or women in general.”
If we remove gay men from the survey, the percentage probably drops to the 40s. But who cares – a hot man with hair is as attractive to me as one without. I guess that makes me a whore.
