The Age of Manscaping

For hundreds of thousands of years, males were at peace with their body hair.

Where there was skin, there was hair, usually lots of it.

Body hair was welcome.

For Hunter-Gatherers, hair offered protection from the thorny brush that inevitably scraped one’s undercarriage.

Medieval knights needed chivalrous back and chest hair to lessen the torturous chafing from wearing heavy armor.

The Western Settlers had scruffy beards to combat the constant pummeling by sun, wind, dust and tomahawks.

Did the women find all this savage hairiness sexy? Probably. Surviving is an attractive trait.

But now, in the 21st Century, few of us risk our necks on a daily basis.

We don’t wield spears. We brandish smart phones.

Body hair isn’t a necessity. It’s a choice, and therefore, subject to the whims of fashion.

We have entered the Age of Manscaping.

63% of men under 50 admit to trimming their body hair.

On any given day, millions of men do something their ancestors never did. Use a sharp tool on sensitive, hard to reach areas of their anatomy.

Accidents are happening.

This blog is about manscaping mishaps. And how you can avoid them.

Happy Grooming.
