Stop the ‘manscaping’! There, I said it.
I like a freshly-showered and cologne-scented man as much as the next woman. A guy who takes good care of his teeth, trims his nails, and gets regular haircuts probably takes care of his overall health. Men who exercise, eat wholesome foods, and dress in clean clothes look far more attractive than out-of-shape men in stained tee shirts who think French fries are a vegetable choice.
However, unless he’s a professional swimmer, I don’t want my man to wax his legs. Or his chest. Or, God forbid, his nether regions. Who decided that proper sexual etiquette required hairless testicles, anyway? I want a man who looks and feels like a man.
I don’t want to sit next to a guy at the salon when I’m getting a pedicure. While I do think more people should pay attention to foot care, let men get their nails clipped and buffed at the barber shop, where real men go for grooming. I don’t want my man wearing colorless nail polish and chatting about his favorite TV shows with my manicurist while she softens his cuticles.
If you ask me, manscaping has gone awry. I don’t want my man plucked, waxed, and artificially polished. Unless he’s covering a blemish with my cover stick, I don’t want him wearing make-up or borrowing my hoop earrings. A shower, shave, and deodorant suit me fine. I like a man who looks like the guy in the above photo from eyecandy.com. Neat, but masculine.
The feminization of men in our society has gone amok. It’s time for women to say, enough. I’ll take my man with hair, please.
