The 3.5 Hour Marathon In Removing Almost All Of My Body Hair

One common question that seems to float around the Internet is how long does it take to do complete body hair removal on a man. My marathon first session was 3.5 hours and it included the following areas:

  • Armpits
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Brazilian including the perianal area
  • Buttocks
  • Lower back
  • Full legs

My take after the first session? I love the results, they are pretty good and the technician that I went to is really good. The problem is that with this long of a time frame you eventually run out of things to talk about. The second problem with this time is that it is very tiring. You are either laying on your back or your stomach the whole time which after a couple of hours of snapping pain it becomes quite tiring. The technician was really good. I could tell she was getting tired from standing, but she held in there. For the most part everything seems to go quite quick, the area of the body that took the longest and in my opinion the most tedious was the legs, they just seemed to go on forever.

Would I do this again. Short-answer is that I have one more session like this booked. Then I plan on breaking out the legs and doing them separately. Two reasons for this; the first is that the schedule for legs, according to my tech, is every 8-weeks while the rest of the areas is recommended 4-6 weeks and the second reason is that the legs take about a little over an hour, so they themselves are the biggest chunk to the full body.

If you have done full body or a large portion of your body, I would love to hear your experience



81% of men depilate, not including face – is it true that men are going bare down there?

The following is an extract from an article posted on Bitch Magazine called, Isn’t He Lovely: Bare Down There and Everywhere Else with social commentary by Cristen Conger.

Brown University psychologist Michael Boroughs began studying male body depilation (hair removal) in the early 2000s, and his 2009 dissertation found surprisingly high rates of body hair removal among male participants. His follow-up research since has continually confirmed this emerging behavioral pattern, which is consistent among gay and heterosexual men alike.

What we found most interesting is that according to this research study, 81% depilate their body hair. Of course this is not just in the pubic region but covers all aspects under the nose, so perhaps the study itself is misleading compared to the 2010 Study done on Women’s Pubic Hair Removal preferences.

For starters, the gender gap in body hair removal (not including facial hair) is narrower that you might think. According to Borroughs’ and others’ research:

90.1% of women depilate
80.9% of men depilate

Moreover, for both women and men, a negative correlation exists between body hair growth and dissatisfaction. In other words, the more body hair that grows on the groin, chest, arms, the less people tend to report liking that anatomy.

Anyway, we encourage you to check out the full article, it is a good read.

What do you think? As a man do you remove your body hair? As a women what is your preference for male body hair removal?
