Little Known Fact: We Don't Mind A Little Bit of Back Hair On A Guy

There, we said it. In fact, we think it's kind of manly in a grunting caveman way. Hey, our ancestors used to kick it with neanderthals, right? Maybe there is some kind of evolutionary gene buried deep within our subconscious that is attracted to fuzzy wuzzies. We can't explain it, but we can't deny it either. Guys with moderate amounts of back hair are totally welcome in Casa de Shmitten Kitten.

Don't get us wrong, a full-on ape cape is still a tough sell. If we can braid your back hair into a friendship bracelet, then we are gonna have to have an uncomfortable talk with you involving the words "shave" and "it off." We ain't tryin' to get with no werewolves, but a few sprigs of hair peeking out over the top of your shirt collar are not horrible.

Guys out there with back hair, we just wanted to let you know that it's cool; you can take your shirt off poolside this summer. Don't be shy: Fly that fur flag! Strut around like the manimal you are. We dig it.

Are we crazy? Where do you guys land on the back hair debate? Is there even a debate because last we heard, no one else has talked about it.

"Ape Cape". Holy shit that's hilarious.

I have, what I like to call, "peach fuzz buzz" going on my lower back. It's a cute, wispy tuft of hair in the shape of a tribal tramp stamp. Can anyone at Shmitten Kitten get jiggy with that?

I didn't think so... :(

wax me

I've always called that the butt patch. I think Matt Damon has one.

If you take two guys with really hairy backs and put them back-to-back, will they stick together like velcro? Will it make the same tearing sound when you pull them apart?

As long as you aren't balding and all of your hair looks like it's running off your scalp onto your back, some normal back hair is fine.

Ironically, I agreed to help wax one of my close male friend's back last night. We didn't take it all off, just the agitating part that showed through his undershirt (poor kid!).

When we stood with the wax and debated what part to take off, I said that a guy with NO back hair is creepier than a dude with some manly fuzz.

The world is becoming a cold, unforgiving place for the un-hairy.

I think its the whole "want what you can't have" or in this case, what you can't grow, view that makes my attraction to man hair so great. I am completely in love with chest/back hair. Although I have a thing against curly chest hair. Can't guys just use a trimmer though instead of waxing everything off? 40 yr old virgin springs to mind.

Really?! Back hair is one of my few dealbreakers. When smooching with a guy, I slip a hand into his collar and check for it. If it's there I am gone.

Oh man, Anna. Every time I re-read this and see that you managed to weave the term "friendship bracelet" mere sentences away from "ape cape" I want to give you a crown.
