Manscape Survey Results Round 2
It’s been almost two years, since I posted the manscaping survey on my blog. The survey has about eight times the responses, since the last time I reported on the results. I wouldn’t say a lot has changed with the results from the round one results. What got me back to thinking about this survey was an article I read, but I don’t recall where it was at now. The article was a women’s response hitting back at guys of what really turns them off.
The article wasn’t a survey, but was a few women’s view on what turns them off. Basically manscaping was mentioned in all the women’s responses. It seems back hair and the private area were the ones that needs maintenance in their eyes. I remember one calling the private area a jungle and another saying needing a lawnmower to find some men’s willies. One woman also commented that men expect us to be primp and proper down there, which I think is generally true. So I wonder if these women’s views on hair is a general consensus of women or just happen to be the luck of the draw.
I know I’m for tidying up the private area for both men and women. To me hair sticking out of the undies isn’t attractive. If you are going to be wearing bikinis and thongs then you’re going to most likely need to groom or that is going to be the case. There was no surprise with the result of the survey that only 5% of the people that took the survey leave the private area natural. The rest either clear the field completely (47%), clear some and leave some (30%), and keep it trimmed down (15%). There were some other answers, but they fit in the categories just mentioned.
What other areas other than our privates do we tend to? Well number two is no surprise to me with the butt. I personally like my rear to look smooth in a thong, so I just run a hair trimmer over it. 72% percent of those survey do some kind of hair care on their rears. Armpits at number 3 was a bit of a surprise at 47%. It edge out the chest which was at 46%. I thought the back would probably be number 3 on the list. It actually tied with legs at 31%. Then rounding out the areas that are manscaped was arms at 18%.
How do we handle our hair grooming? Well, I mentioned I use a hair trimmer, but I also opt for the manual razor myself. 71% of those that took the survey also use the manual razor for some of their grooming. Followed by the hair trimmer at 32% and then the electric razor at 23%. 15% either head to the spa/salon for a waxing or do it themselves. Hair removal cream came in at 13% while electrolysis was 1% of those surveyed.
What was the main reason for manscaping? Well, 50% surveyed likes how it feels. I fall into liking how it looks with 39% of those who responded. 3% do it because their partner wants them too. Speaking of partners, most of us prefer that our partner keeps their private area tidy with 85% saying yes to that question.
So overall not really any big surprises with the survey considering most that took it are probably bikini and/or thong wearers. Makes sense we like to keep things tidy along with our partners joining in on the tidiness.
