“I don’t know if it’s just me, but I find chest hair so attractive!” a gay man recently disclosed on Reddit under username outofplace111. He added, “Especially when they’re wearing a t-shirt, and then you can see some little hairs come out at the bottom of their neck. The imagination of the rest of their chest hair gets me going lol.”
Though some of the gay men expressed preference over smooth hair, majority of the respondents seem to agree with the original poster (OP) of the thread. One of them named JMikeB said, “I love body hair, it’s always a shame when people with a lot of body hair shave it off.”
Others like user Warngumer, however, are on the fence about it: “For me, it depends on how it looks, like the pattern or how much there is or how well kept it is, some chest hair is attractive but then others I don’t like that much.”
User Rottenox on the other hand, loves both, he said, “I’m pretty much exclusively into bears so obviously I love body hair on men. That being said, I like smooth too. Doesn’t have to be either or. I like hairy guys because they’re hairy and smooth guys because they’re smooth. Men are just hot.”
While users like lethos_AJ who have hairy chests, find it uncomfortable because it “itches, sometimes gets caught in clothing fabric and gets pulled. Overall annoying.”
Meanwhile, a study made in 2019 revealed that 73% of gay men prefer “a man that is well groomed versus hairy.” According to the article, “well-groomed can be defined as hairy, but clippered, and shaved as well.”
A survey conducted way back in 2017 however, says differently, it showed that 58% of gay men preferred partners who have hairy chests.
That’s what some of the survey says, but what about you, guys? What do you prefer: hairy or smooth chest? Does it really have to be one or the other but not both? Why or why not?

Hairy chest and face! Preferably trimmed so as to not be out of control. A hairy body is the first attraction I remember when I was realizing I was gay. Women don’t have body or facial hair. Bring me a hairy man ! ! !
Hairy or Hairless?
If you do not want hair on your bedding, in your shower, in and upon your bathroom sink, between your teeth or, ultimately, in your stomach…only to cause an upset…
smooth is your only choice. It is easier on the lips and on the tongue if smooth; less work…maxium efficiency.
Hair is fine…atop of the head but, for a truly, thorough blow job, balls licking and, ultimately, rim-job…smooth is the only way to go…nothing gets in between your mouth and the hole..
Diminish the inconvencies; increase the pleasure…!
I’m the smooth one but love a hairy guy makes me hot as heck
I think it all depends on the guy. Some look good with, some without. Chest hair pattern can make a big difference to me as well. Love the ones that look like it is all combed and laying in order. That’s probably just my O.C.D. side thinking for me though.
It’s called C.D.O. if you put the letters in the right order!
It depends. I’ve been with guys that are hairy all over and are fucking sexy. I’ve been with hairy guys and their hair is gross. Just like smooth guys, some look great smooth, others would look better if they had hair. With my body type, I look better with hair and thankfully, I’ve got it.
My Scottish genes have blessed me with an abundance of hair. For years I looked for the opposite, a smooth guy. Today, go for a smooth guy less and a well groomed man more. Hairy legs, hairy chest, definitely gets my motor running.
I prefer a neatly trimmed chest.
I love a hot chest on a man. Nothing hotter than getting my hands on the muscular pecs. For hair, bring it on . A chance to rain my fingers thru a forest of man chest very hot. If he has a nice trail to the package, even hotter.
Definitely hairy. Wouldn’t kick a smooth chest out of bed though. And like a guy with pubic hair… thick bushy pubes
Shaved pubes looks child-like and is a turn off! Agree, pubes are sexy! It looks even worse when a hairy guy shaves his pubes only, it just looks ridiculous!
I do adore a hairy chest. It’s masculine and very chic. A smooth chest can be grand, too, if the man is not naturally hairy. A smooth chest can be a fun playground with chocolate syrup or honey or whipped cream. The personality of the man can factor into the pleasure of any chest.
Variety is the spice of life! I find beauty in both. I may be fickle, but dense back hair can be less attractive to me. However I’d never suggest a guy shave it.
Hairy woof , smooth…eh
It doesn’t matter to me. Hairy or smooth
Yes, I definitely prefer groomed over hairy, and no back hair.
Hairy, hairy, hairy, hairy and bushy pubic hair. Want a man, not a woman or a little boy.
Definitely hairy chests are better! Love fur! Being a hairy man myself I love mingling my fur with another hairy man!
Well personally I enjoy smooth chests because I like young looking dudes guys. I love the feeling of our bodies touching and feeling every detail he may have .And the sensation when our skins getting moist and start to cling to each other. Too much fur acts like a barrier and I feel like I’m passing my hands over a carpet Like Lethos AJ I can agree, even though I have minimal fuzz and you can feel my skin it does itch and even prickles my nipples! I get a rash between my pecs especially in summer in the heat… Read more »
I love body hair and so many guys shave their crouch these days also. It does not make it look bigger. Put the razor down. Love facial hair also the way we were made.
Love everything and everyone
Not a big deal
Definitely prefer hairy. “The hairier the betterer” is my motto. But I don’t discriminate
There isn’t a simple answer for me. i like men be it hairy or smooth. Yet some guys wear their body hair so well i am putty in their presence. Back hair is a total turn on for me, i think it’s the animal coming out in them.
If a guy chooses to be smooth then keep it shaved i don’t like stubble. But a naturally smooth guy has his own appeal. They say variety is the spice of life, same goes with hairy guys.
Definitely prefer smooth chest and bodies with trimmed in genital and armpit region. Far from a deal breaker however because there is way more to people than looks!!
I am for smooth. The smoother the better. Mostly the torso from the neck to the groin.
I like my men furry of face and chest. The hairier the better – chest, shoulders, back…all nicely carpeted. Seeing a man in a suit with hair cascading from his cuffs over the backs of his hands makes me wonder what’s underneath that jacket and behind his tie and the buttons of his crisp dress shirt. And a man a tight tank top that shows off his thick pelt or one who’s chest hair peeks out above the collar of his snig t-shirt always gets my attention. I find it very…ahem…”stimulating” to explore a lushly furred chest in search of… Read more »
My thing is, I prefer men who have at least some body hair. I’ve been with a couple of guys who actually couldn’t grow hair anywhere but slight pubes, which was ok. My biggest turn off is SHAVING and WAXING. Balding a nice hairy chest is bad enough..but men shaving their armpits and crotch..yuk!! Or waxing their arms!?? (Rapper Drake makes me angry for doing that lol) A bald crotch is a total deal breaker for me. Very few men are even flat enough in that area to even consider doing it! I certainly will be glad when the Ken… Read more »
Just adding my two cents worth. Although I’m bearded, I much prefer smooth bodies to hairy bodies. I don’t mind being with guys that have neatly trimmed hair but I’m not overly attracted to hairy, ‘beary’ types. I like guys with beards but equally guys that are clean shaven are just as sexy! For me; being able to ‘explore’ a guy’s smooth body is far more appealing than trying to navigate a hairy terrain and ending up with a mouth full of fur. Having lots of body hair doesn’t maketh the man! Personal preferences are subjective. But smooth, older, in… Read more »
It’s irrelevant as it is a personal choice, I prefer hairy as to me a totally shaved man should look like a man and not a prepubescent boy.
Smooth of course. A little hair is fine. A lot of hair needs to be trimmed, anywhere it’s at (except the head).
AND THATS WHY THEY SIT ALONE AT THE BAR…so sick of these ‘queer eye’ types that have make EVERYTHING a fashion statement or knock those that don’t adhere to their sick requests. How about fuck their opinion?You’re just a gay, you’re not worth me making personal changes just because you have an opinion. Don’t worry some more sensible gay dude WITHOUT all these PETTY-ASS issues will come along and snatch dude up hairless or not, while you sit there wondering dumbshit. This is the exact reason gays are connected to such ’13 year old retarded girl’ stereotypes.
Sorry, but everybody has an opinion on everything. This might not be that much of a deal breaker for you, but I’m sure you’ve got others that you have strong opinions about (age, body type, race, height, sexual position, drinker, smoker, drugs, condom/raw, monogamy/open relationship, penis size, uncut/cut, politics, etc…….).
love hairy men…though I don’t like hairy backs. that said I enjoy smooth men as well. I don’t understand guys who shave their chest hair
Hairy chest and thick pubes gets me going! If a smooth guy has a thick bush, that’s a close second.
I like a man to be natural – the only turn off I have is if they shave their chest. I like hairy chested men & smooth men it’s about the personality to me
An appealing man is hard not to notice period, with or without chest hair. I myself am pretty smooth, so hairy does appeal to me.
HAIRY!! Hair grows on mature men. If I have to ask a guy for ID to prove he’s legal age that’s a big turn off. Don’t get me wrong- I’ve been with naturally smooth guys and had a ball. But all this “manscaping” is ridiculous. Most of the time I ask a guy why he shaves his body it’s because his WIFE likes it that way. Well then boys go F your wife!
Hairy Chest all the way!……. the sign of a MANLY man! 🙂
I like hairy men. To me hairy men just look more masculine. I especially like a nice hairy ass. A hairy back is fine too. I do not like seeing completely shaved crotches. Its okay to shave your balls so you can see them, but thats it. To paraphrase Rodney Carrington…a guy that shaves is crotch and looks like a little boy is just wrong. I can see trimming your body hair if it is unruly but not shave it all off. I had to have a stress test done and they shaved blotches off my hairy cheat. I looked… Read more »
Since I prefer fems and transgenders, it’s smooth all the way!!!!!!!
Hairier the better
Naturally smooth all over!!! I want a man…NOT an animal. I’m not into beastiality.
Do you not realize that hair is natural? Total failure of a comment, and way too judgy.
I think that was just a figure of speech . All that fur just gives him that impression. It’s all of personal taste and attraction.
Don’t you realize that not everybody needs to look like a grizzly bear with all that hair; & not everybody likes a hairy man.
& I know there’s things out there that are instant “No’s” for you (see my post to “Daddy” up above).
Harry Men are THE BEST. Nothing remotely sexy about men who shave their body hair. I have no interest in men who look like pre-pubescent boys.
I really get into men’s nipples….looking at them and licking them to stimulate my guy. Sure some guys look good with trimmed chests but if I’m licking a guys nips and I get hair in my mouth or feel the hairs on my tongue, it’s distracting and takes away from the quality of the experience for me.
For me, I’m versatile in the sack, and prefer hairy tops and smooth bottoms. I personally have a little chest and leg hair but am mostly smooth with a nicely groomed beard. Also love uncut cocks…I know, that’s another topic…….
Give me a good natural intact cock any day!
I prefer guys who have smooth chests and smooth balls, but I love eating out naturally sweaty hairy pits. It gives me an instant hard on. Also love smelling guy’s sweaty worn socks and giving his feet a good tongue bath before he showers and then shower with him soaping him up, kissing him all over his clean body and fucking in the shower.
The most successful gay porn stars are usually pretty smooth, so that’s a good indication of what most gays prefer
