What a Great Experience this group has become. The kinship in Brotherhood. There is such a diverse range of topics. This is the place we can be as open as we want to be... Everyone is welcome to join, but it is not a place to Cruise. It's for sharing sexual questions and comments among men.

Do you guys shave your armpit or just trim the hair? I see lots of guys in the gym with no armpit hair. I heard it gives good definition to the muscles when posing. I do shave everything off sometimes for the same reason but I mostly just trim what about you guys?

ryu2008,
I do not shave or trim my armpit hair. I leave it natural. I am not a very muscular guy or visit a gym like I think I should so I just leave it alone. I do not sweat easily, but when I do the hair helps wick away the sweat. Being over 50 I just have no reason to trim or shave under my arms.

I have long, silky armpit hair. People have commented on it.
I leave it alone, but since infancy, have had armpit odor, unless I take care of it...deodorant, alchohol, or hand sanitizer.

I trimmed it a few times back when I was in my 20's. but since then I leave it alone. Lets also add, since I lost the hair on top... I cherrish every other hair I have. (sometimes afraid the "lawn" won't grow back if I trim it to much... if ya know what I mean... LOL!)

I trim the armpit hair down. Instead of a bushy armpit, I have about a half inch of growth so that it doesn't stick out when my arms are down. I think armpit hair is masculine and manly. A shaved armpit on a guy looks unnatural to me. I think most women probably prefer their guys to have some hair there...

Normally I don't do anything under the armpits, but the few times I have used a beard trimmer there to make it shorter I liked how it looked.

No, I don't bother. But then, my body hair is very fine textured and light brown, so unless you are close up, it is almost invisible.

I tend to trim my armpit hair pretty short every month or so, simply because I sweat a lot and I find the hair tends to trap it a bit more causing more of an odor.

I have both trimmed and completely shaved off my armpit hair for many of the reasons mentioned, but I actually find the armpit hair on a guy very sexy.

I just keep it trimmed. I love my armpit hair and think it looks hot on other men! I am a hairy guy and I just love body hair anyway!

I don't have alot of armpit hair so I don't see the need to shave it. I also like to see a guy with hair under his arms.
