Facial hair is the representation of manhood.I feel odd when Im clean shaven.Too shiny and glimmering.

I grew my moustache at 14-15 and by the time I was 16 my beard was complete.Not as thick and awesome as it is now but I still had a beard,and I was walking proud with it at school.I had complaints from the school calling my parents and they made me shave it a couple of times,but I just kept growing it.

What first comes to my mind is :"What or from whom is he trying to hide by concealing his face behind all of that hair ?"

I grew my first full beard at 22. It signifies manhood, style, virility, a guy who's favorite ice cream flavor is rocky road :rolleyes:

But a guy who hasn't shaved or trimmed in 3 months could signify a lazy slob.

Some men barely have facial hair!It doesn't mean we are less manly than the ones who do.

It means you have less testosterone.Some people would argue is that connected to manlyness or not but I believe it is.Testosterone affects many other things beside facial hair in a man.

No,some people just have a different hair distribution,my legs and thighs are the hairiest I have ever seen.

There is no clear cut explanation for it, but here is something interesting.

''One of the papers stood out from the crowd, in that it tried to explain why men might grow beards in the first place from an evolutionary perspective. Lots of other animals grow facial hair, and one of the most well-known cases is the lion’s mane. Only male lions grow manes, and males without manes are treated very differently than males with manes - they’re attacked more often, have less success with females, among other negative consequences. This suggests that there are survival and reproductive benefits to facial hair. The author proposes that beards might convey similar benefits to people, and specifically suggests that beards might act as a kind of camouflage to protect us from attacks to the fragile parts of our jaw. If you’re a boxer, this should make a lot of sense: one shot to the jaw can quickly incapacitate a person, so there’s a real benefit to making the jaw a little harder for an attacker to target. Of course, these kinds of theories are very tricky to test and disprove, so we may never know if there are survival benefits to facial hair, but it is an interesting idea.''

Do you really believe that the ferocious American Indian warriors whom the white settlers so feared (and with good reason) were any LESS manly than the pale-faces ? Yet, no pure-blooded Native American male has ever had facial hair.

People who can grow hair on their legs but not on their faces are referred to by scientists as "women".

In my own experence, I have noticed that when I am wearing a beard I inspire more respect among ppl, it gives me the feeling that somehow I even intimidate some ppl.

I see it as animalistic, raw and beastly-looking... a primal caveman look and a sign of masculinity and also sexual maturity in men.

I really don't like the look of large bushy beards and bushy and overgrown moustaches on men as I think they look unhygenic and unkissable and like their hiding their jaws and skin and don't care about anything... and it can make them look older than their years, but I do seriously love some facial hair on men (providing it's not a big bushy beard like those muslim clerics have.)

I love the look of the Greek and Spanish male models I posted for instance, where they have some facial hair/designer stubble/goatee beards, but their facial features, jawlines and skin quality is still visible too. I think this shows sexual maturity, but also a caring, humane and protective quality about them too, since they care to trim their facial hair and keep it neat, whilst showing some facial hair at the same time.

I think some facial hair is a naturally attractive carnal feature in men to the opposite sex for mating reasons in finding a healthy-looking and sexually-fertile male in nature.

I think Jon Kortajarena, Theo and George Michael's facial hair looks so gorgeous, devilish and horny looking. I like it when it's grown a bit softer beyond the prickly-sandpaper texture of shorter stubble (it really hurts a females gentle lips and face to kiss a man with prickly stubble) but at the same time not being so overgrown that a mans jaws are no longer visible - somewhere between the two.

I love the slightly-rugged look of these guys facial hair and their strong jawlines can still be seen too (they have a lot of female admirers); David Gandy, Jon Kortajarena, George Michael, Theo Theodoridis, Russell Brand... and the others below are Spanish and Greek.

They have a slightly sweaty look which appeals to females too (a mans natural scent is more erotic to a female than the artificial floral scent of aftershaves - to smell like a real man which gives off pheromone factors in nature.)

The beauty and cosmetics industry thrives on making humans feel insecure about their natural sexual odour, so humans will spend ages harshly scrubbing off all their natural sexual attraction scents with the products they're sold... only to spend more money applying artificial scents afterwards in order to attract the opposite sex!

If a man is overly-preened it makes him look untouchable and unnatural, so females tend to prefer a guy who looks slightly rugged with tousled hair and a bit unshaven and a little bit sweaty (so long as they're still clean - there's a difference between a guy who is unhygenic and never washes and smells of very stale sweat (which isn't attractive or healthy) - and a guy with up to a few days of sweat on him which gives off a fresh pheromone scent to the opposite sex (which is natures mating scent) - like with those rugged and sweaty guys working hard on building sites, or a guy who's just come out a gym, or the early morning and tousled look.

A lot of females like a guy with slightly sweaty feet and armpits and some body and facial hair and a natural rugged look.

Some men worry too much and spend a lot of money and time fussing over their hair being groomed into place and looking untouchable, trying to look overly-smooth, clean-shaven, waxing their chests to look like boys, wearing smart and prissy gentleman suits, etc, when actually their natural and masculine rugged look and wearing some worn-in clothes (like wild rockers and bikers who wear sightly-ripped jeans and have tousled hair and aren't clean-shaven guys) is more attractive.

Science is fairly clear on this, I can dig up the links if you don't believe me.

Full beard = dominant, agressive, mature, fatherly, not very sexually attractive

Stubble = dominant, very sexually attractive, agressive, not fatherly

Clean Shaven = not dominant, not sexually attractive, not agressive

These are findings of several studies done on women's preference for beards. Makes you think why the clean cut look is encouraged in so many places including the military and corporate world. Basically it is a way to emasculate men and make them into boys who do as they are told.

Beard = Dihydrotestosterone, the main sex hormone for men, that is the sex hormone responsible for boners and all the secondary sexual characteristics. That is why beards are attractive to women.

It's a consequence of sexual selection like light hairs and eyes in Europe.
The other eplanation would be that men with beards were stronger and smarter and so passes on their genes generation after generations.

Lazyness. If you see beards not taken care off then you can safely assume the guy is suffering from some symptoms similar to drugs where the person stops giving a shit about their life and their looks/dresses.

I wear a full beard and mustache to show that I am an adult man. Clean-shaven faces are for women and little boys.
