With regards to men's chests:

A friend of mine is asking on her blog if we females prefer our men with or without chest hair. I know this is an old question, but I got to wondering if the preference is due to the fact that we usually want what we don't have.

In other words, do we like our men without hair because our own hubbys or sig. others are on the hirsute side? (Like women with curly hair want it straight, and vice versa?)

I can't help but notice that 99.5% of all book covers featuring men's bared chests have hairless pecs. Most of the time, whether the hero does or doesn't have hair is never mentioned in the book itself. But supposedly women prefer their men without it (hence the covers.) Again, is this because their own menfolk are on the fuzzy side?

Personally, it makes no difference to me unless the guy is wearing his own winter coat. In that case, if he's cute, I'd buy him a case of Nair. :tt2:
