--Here are the five rules they came up with.
#1.) Shave or Wax Your Back, but Keep It a Secret. Basically, they want you to do it if you have a lot of back hair. But they'd rather not know about it. (--On the other hand, maybe you can bond over it.)
#2.) Don't Shave Your Chest Hair, but Trim It if It Gets Out of Control. If you need to clean it up a little bit, use trimmers. Don't shave everything, and don't get it waxed.
--The only time it's even ACCEPTABLE to shave all your chest hair is if you're in outstanding shape. Otherwise, leave a little.
#3.) Never Completely Shave Your Package. One woman said it best, quote, "It makes me think he's trying too hard, or [he's] a weirdo who loves staring at his naked crotch."
--On the other hand, don't let it get TOO crazy down there. They say to use scissors or trimmer . . . never wax . . . and be VERY careful.
#4.) Don't Shave Your Face on Weekends. If you HATE having facial hair . . . or SHE hates it . . . then by all means shave. But apparently a lot of women like it when you're scruffy sometimes.
#5.) Don't Shave Your Arms or Your Legs. Again, one of the women they talked to nailed this one. She said, quote, "I would find it very, very odd if a guy waxed his arms and legs and wasn't a cyclist or a swimmer."
--We assume the same thing goes for the hair under your arms.
