Shirtless men with no chest hair, what's up with that?

This may seem abit hypocritical of me, but I recently came to notice that in numerous videos and photos I see, most men I see shirtless have absolutely no hair on their torso, none.

What's up with that? I'm legally an adult in the US and I got a buttload of hair on my chest, I'm serious.

Well, some hairless-chested people I can understand if they have tattoos or something, but I don't know why I find it so suddenly wierd when I see this on people and another wierd thing, is that everytime I see a hairless shirtless male, I suddenly think Wallabee Beetles from Codename: Kids Next Door, probubly becuase of how in Deviantart how he has probubly enough fanart pics of him shirtless to shame Edward from Twilight (oooh, edgy!), and yet he's 10 years old (though some pics show him being older), makes me worry quite abit.

But anyway, what's up actors have no hair on their chests whenever they appear shirtless?

Umm...I'm 20, and I have zero hair on my chest. This is not due to me shaving, but just because I don't get hair there...I assume it to remain that way for a good portion of my life. The less hairy, the better anyways.

It's sexier than a massive bush growing out of their torso?

google "target audiance" ;)

ps- 22 myself, not much hair, had to shave some for my tattoo, but eh, i'm ok w/ hairy or hairless myself :P

I have almost no chest hair so I generally shave it off cause it just looks really really silly otherwise.

Im a guy and I dont like excessive hair on my body.

And besides I dont have chest hair

This happens to them...

Some people have snail trail and others have a garden trail, my friends tell me I've got highway. I guess it's just how I am.

It's actually Jacob who appears topless in the Twilight films, not Edward. You've just been bamboozled. ...Or something.

Probably because it's not attractive. Plus most men that appear topless in films are either for the women to ogle or get greased up and have shiny torsos. ...Plus chest hair can look ugly. :P

It's just considered more attractive for who they are appealing to, female audiences.
chest hair hit it's highpoint with Burt Reynolds and now hairless is attractive. I'm 19 and have very little hair, but I did cosplay shirtless before and shaved what little hair I had just so people wouldn't have to look at unsightly strands of curly black hair.

Eighteen, enough hair to consider the above method.

its aesthetically pleasing to the eye, most shirtles actors shave or whatever because they want to show muscle, in most cases at least, also its a recent trend in movies,

the "chest hair" is more common on older movies here is an example

no Edward is shirtless in the second movie.


P.S Do girls find this guy attractive? I mean I always liked pale skin but dear god, that just looks dead.
Attention fans of twilight...

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOUR STANDARDS!?!?

I'm 25 and have zero chest hair, nothing grows there

They are hairless because they believe the sun to be harmful and they want to see if they can destroy it by reflecting its light back at it. With their chests. :P

I think it's because Western culture has painted it as unattractive to have chest hair and thus, people grow up with that misconception. Personally, I don't care either way.

Show me someone who is ripped and with absolutely no chest hair and I'll show you someone who takes pride in their personal appearance.

Show me someone who wears a carpet on their torso and I'll show you someone who doesn't give a shit about what people think.

And this is coming from a guy who started getting chest hair at the tender age of 14. Imagine what that looks like now, now that I'm in my mid-20s.

Well he is meant to be undead and all.... Just Sayin.

different people have different amount of hair, but if you're talking about models and such, often they'll wax their chests because hair doesn't photograph well and it obscures the body that they work hard to maintain.

Much of the music videos, which sets a lot of fashion, is aimed at preteen and early teen girls. They are looking for little boys, that means no hair. Hair seems "old man" to them and thus it doesn't market well to those 12 year old girls.

A generation has now bought into this fashion trend so even some older girls seem to think the boy look is sexy.

I suppose its no different than men who like their women to dress young.

it doesn't even look undead just plain dead. I watched the first 2 movies (Only the rifftrax versions so they were pretty awesome) and both of the the actors who play Bella and Edward are attractive people but onscreen they look diseased. Did the director just tell the makeup department to make them look like the two most undesirable people to ever live? They get more pale and sickly every damn movie!
I really got to have another rifftrax party, if they could make twilight enjoyable anything is possible.

This basically. A lot of girls are into the boyish look, also guys of the non heterosexual persuasion.

My current girlfriend hates the men portrayed in ads nowadays. She says they look like women, and I agree.

She then gets turned on by playing with my chest hair and beard. o.o

At least men are now expected to be nearly as hairless as women have been for the past 20 years. Less of a double standard now.

Ideally people would feel free to be as hairy or hairless as they choose, of course, but that's never going to happen.

Ah Sean Conory in his Bond days, it doesn't get much manlier than that.

More to the point, it used to be that hairiness was seen as a sign of virility. The thought being that lots of hair meant lots of testosterone, and manliness, and high sperm count.(I think) Then the gays gave unto us the wisdom that is "manscaping" and the idea that you didn't have to look like Grisly Adams to be masculine. Then Bravo created Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, and well...lets just say you can have to much of a good thing sometimes. Too support that last statement I point you to "The Situation".

I'm a 20 year old Russian guy. I have really hairy legs, fairly hairy arms, and very little hair on my chest. I'm not quite sure why it worked out that way.

That exists? Might have to look into this. I have a forest growing under my shirts and I hate it. Every damn time I take a shower, no matter how hard I try and hope and pray, I just cannot get my torso dry. Why is it so fucking hard to dry hairy areas?! Then I put my shirt on, it gets moist, and I spend the rest of the day with a cold shirt in freezing temperatures.

I've tried shaving in the past, but it takes so long. Had to trim first, because the hair was too long and tough to shave right away. Sure, the result was joyous and wonderful, but I'm too lazy to spend half an hour shaving my chest every week. Damn you, northern European genes!

Are you my twin or something?

This generation is one that finds carpet chests unattractive. Man, I was born in the wrong decade.

So I have a little chest hair and a trail. There's only two areas of my body that I'll ever shave and neither of them are my chest. It's not pride, its more just I don't care and I got a few gnarly scars on my chest around my body. Those tend to balance out the chest hair.

Besides, its not chest hair you need to worry about. If you need to be worried about any kind of hair issues, then be worried about back hair (one genetic bullet I thankfully dodged).

Let's be honest, you could have the best body a woman could desire (or man, this is the 21st century afterall). That body won't be worth its weight if you do not have any confidence to back it up.

I've seen it, guys you think women would not give a second look, yet with their confidence, they're the ones who wake up with a warm body next to them more often than not.

In short, chest hair issue can be negated by scars; back hair is a bigger issue; confidence is the biggest if you have none.

The only time chest hair is good is when it's shaped like Australia.

I don't shave, I just don't grow it much there. I mean there's a little bit, but even if I was a hairy motherfucker I wouldn't shave. Mainly due to the fact that I don't have a vagina. I don't even do a very good job of shaving my face. Shaving just sucks in general.

It isn't the 70s anymore?

I got pretty much no chest hair, a little belly hair and a bit of facial hair. I'm pretty okay with this.

My family just isn't very hairy. My dad has practically none, and I have very little. I also have a single patch of back hair on one shoulder blade. The area is prone to itchiness and breakouts even if I shave it. I dunno.
I guess these guys are just comfortable in their hairlessness? If you like your hair, don't let it get to you.

Chest hair is not vert fashionable at the moment.

Also, a lot of guys have very thin chest hair (myself among them) and it tends to look a lot better to just shave it all off rather than leave it looking patchy.

You know, it isn't the shade of his skin that grosses me out. It is the bushy black eyebrows that make me want to get the tweezers and trimmer out. I admit to watching the first movie but I stared at his eyebrows the whole time wondering wtf? They disturb me. >.<

OT
Chest hair used to be very popular in the 70s to early 80s, maybe later. Just think Magnum PI (Tom Selleck). If you are brave you could search for porn from that era, I will admit that this is where I have seen the difference so plainly when I have happened across it. Eww. Everything was.. bushier. So for now everything trimmed or shaved is more acceptable. Eventually it will change again.
