    A shaved chest would look silly on me. I'm a rather hairy dude.

    Um, if you do decide to do it. Wax it dont shave it, otherwise it'll grow back twice as fast!

    Plus, I think some women like em, some women dont. So... it's REALLY a question of how gay you wanna be :p

    some women like it, some don't. also depends how hairy you are.


    if you're in good shape and it's summertime and u feel good with a shaved chest, do it up. just prepare to shave it almost on a daily basis.

    wax is the better way to go

    YES!
    This isnt the 70's. shave that crap. ESPECIALLY if you've got taco meat and not a full sweater. If youre not a mountain man in the best shape of your life or an ex porn star - you can' get away with scraggly hair on your chest and back. DEAL WITH IT. But if your married and your wife likes it - fine. If she says, "I dont care either way" she's sparing your feelings and your self-esteem.

    I still only have two certifiable chest hairs. I'm glad.

    Yeah, I shave every other day. I keep it in a nice heart pattern, with it connecting right to my pe-...

    OH! CHEST! Uh... yeah, I don't shave my chest much. I would, but that is a 3 hour project, since I have a very wide, very broad, very manly, very hairy chest. Also, it itches like a motherfucker.

    If I had some of that spray on nair stuff, I'd clean it off daily. But I don't, so I can't.

    Everyone's policy on shaving should be to not do it unless it's necessary.

    Edit: Dude, I was going to add in a bit about hearts... I hear that to truly impress a lady, a heart is the only way to go. I'm talking an anatomically accurate heart, right over where your actual heart is. Alternatively, to impress a dude, a neat '<3' will do.

    Also, I would really advise against using Nair of any kind. Really.

    It's more of a call to caution. I've just seen some terrible reactions to chemical depilatories. I mean, you're applying things like lye directly to your skin, and it's basically burning away the hairs at their roots.

    I have pretty sensitive skin that's kept in mild conditions (usually well-covered and all that), which I guess adds to it being a pansy about everything. Definitely test it out first, and I think the instructions on them should say to wait 24 hrs or so to see if it's killing you. Shit burns, dude. It can strip your skin pretty harshly if you leave it on for too long.

    Oh ok, I thought you meant it would cause more fur where there was no fur before.

    Basically I used nair. Don't judge me for I don't need you projecting gay thoughts upon me!! No burning, redness or skin tissue melting so I'm all good.

    Yeeees... over my heart. That's exactly what muscle it's over. Yep. Definitely.

    ...I think it looks cute. Don't judge me.

    A chest is like genitals. There should be hair but properly groomed. There ends the comparison.

    Having a full set of nipples is more important than making sure a few stray hairs aren't a problem. Lady is fine with it, so I'm good.

    Shave only your face, genitals, or hair. Anything else is a waste of time.

    And Sightless, get an avatar. It's bugging me.

    Depends on the significant other you are going after. I shaved forever cause I couldn't stand looking like a yeti, then met my wife who's into a bear of a man so now I'm basically a Steve Carell body double.

    Well if you're like me and have blonde hair and only like 5 chest hairs (and for some reason, I can grow hair on every other part of my body), there's really no point.

    no, do not shave your chest hair. unless you are a bodybuilder.. i think they deduct 1 point for not shaving.. no i'm just kidding.. it's to better see the definition.
