Chest hair. In addition to a full beard, it represents the ultimate hairy discipline when it comes to masculinity. For a long time it was considered THE erotic feature of a man. Whether James Bond or rock superstars. Chest hair was fashionable.

Although in certain situations of interpersonal togetherness it is suitable for the popular after-sex cuddling (and chest hair scratching), for many women it is still an absolute no-go for men!

Male body hair is socially acceptable again, almost “in”.
