I don't know if it's random luck or what, but despite what you read/hear/see in the media, I've found that a lot of girls seem to like a hairy chest. I've had a bunch of girls who just couldn't keep their hands off my chest, for just that reason (and they openly admitted as much).
Besides, would you really ask Magnum to wax his chest? link
What about Bond? link
Or worst of all, *him*? link
