Guys shaving arms & legs?

I'm a normal guy with a girlfriend and a good job, etc. Work out 4-5 times a week. I hate body hair! Is it cool for guys to shave their arms and legs?

Most Helpful Opinion

  • Yeh, in fact, it's more common than most people realize. I've known guys, mainly athletic types, who shaved their legs and arms. People either assume that they have baby thin blonde hair or they shaved, but it's never a bad thing. I'll be honest, I shave my arms and I'm somewhat athletic too. I have for for a few years since my cheerleading days. I just think it looks and feels better, but there's nothing wrong with keeping it natural either.

  • Not to me. Let the hair grow.

  • it's cool for me & many gurls.but some gurls don't like it at all.

  • if you hate hair so much why don't you shave yo head wit pubics along with legs and arms? and sure its cool :)

    • Ha-Ha!! I do cut my head hair really close and my downstairs area is lasered...

  • I would say, no its not cool, its kinda gay, but if you are like monkey hairy then yes shave.

  • Yes I think it would be alright.

    Personally I find it unattractive when men have hairy legs.

    I would perfer my man to shave even if it wasn't that bad.

  • no.that's for swimmers only

  • i do, I think its fine if you have some muslce behind everything =) I'm into bodybuilding its quite normal really for us...

  • I shave my legs. Feels a lot better and looks better too I think.

  • Yes, it is cool. I have seen more and more guys shaving it all.

  • Yes, go for it. If you feel good doing it, do it!

  • I would not say 'cool' because most people don't think it is normal. However, I happen to think you have the right to do whatever you want with your own body hair. If it makes you feel better to be hair free and your girlfriend likes it, lucky you! Go for it! I am also a normal guy and don't think there is anything wrong with clean shaved bodies. If models, swimmers, bodybuilders, basketball players, cyclists and people with tattoos can do it, why can't anybody? It does not affect who you are. I wish people would be more relaxed about guys shaving.

  • I don't really know how to answer the question of whether or not, "it's cool", but it's important to do what you want. I'm sure there are a lot of people who think, "ew" when they see or hear about a guy who shaves his body like that, but honestly, I don't think that many people care. Most just pretend to, in my opinion.
