    Body Hair

    Ok, so in my opinion I would say I have a lot of body hair. I was interested in maybe trimming it a bit. So, I was wondering if anybody knew of a good method to trim my body hair to a not so thick length. This includes my chest, lower back, and legs. Again, I'm not looking to completely shave the hair, just a trim. Thanks.

    I have a pretty good amount of hair on my chest/ legs. It's not really out of control so I never trim/ shave it. Sometimes I get some random hairs that pop up on my shoulders and I do shave them off. I do pretty much keep the pubes trimmed and neat. I shave the shaft/ balls. Depends on your body type also. Guys that are athletic/ muscular look great/ ok if they trim/ shave off their body hair. Most average built guys like me look kind of odd if they shave or trim off too much body hair!

    I have meduim amount of hair on my chest, arms and legs.
    I use hair clippers with 1/4" guard on it and clip it down every month. I also keep my pubic hair shaved from my belly button down like when i would get a brazilian waxing.
    been doing this for over 15 yrs.
