Well, facial hair is more similar to pubic hair than head hair (they're both different types of androgenic hair), so YANBU there I guess. YABU to be grossed out by it.

Although men with huge Victorian industrialist-style badger-hidingn beards kind of gross me out as well. It just looks weird and unhygienic.

Don't mind a bit of stubble, but these insane, full, lumberjack beards are icky. Thankfully DH can't grow a full beard, and as long as mutton chops don't come back into fashion I'm safe.

fith it does't 'gross' me out, just don't like the look.

BertieBotts Sun 17-Jan-16 12:50:31

It's the same kind of hair. Pubes, armpits, beard hair, that's all.

I don't have an issue with it. I like a beard smile

I love a big beard.

I personally prefer men a bit hairy and I probably wouldn't date a bloke that shaved everywhere, including chest and pubes. It's just personal preference though.

I like a short beard. Full beards gross me out, I just keep thinking about the germs and sweat lurking in there...

ForalltheSaints Sun 17-Jan-16 14:00:03

I am not reminded of pubic hair as a man.

Of course there are some men with large beards who then are inconsistent as they would object to women having any hair 'down there'.

RaspberryOverload Sun 17-Jan-16 14:05:22

I find a short beard okay, but some of these guys with the full on huge beards are just so unsexy.

Chottie Sun 17-Jan-16 14:08:04

I hate all beards with a passion......

(apologies to all those reading with goatees, full beards, moustaches etc.)

"I like my dh clean shaven in all departments"

My mind is boggling at what "all departments" means . Armpits/legs/pubes? Do you not like hair at all?

WorraLiberty Sun 17-Jan-16 14:14:31

I'm not keen on any facial hair really and thank goodness my DH isn't either.

But those full on bushy facial beards are just awful imo.

I know this is totally irrational, but I always think they make the person look unwashed and a bit smelly?! confused

The problem with youngish actors with beards is that they all look the same. Older men who have previously been clean-shaven make me wonder if it's the male menopause and they want to recapture their lost youth. Sebastian Coe looks awful.

Wish I hadnt seen this title! Wont be able to look at one of my adult sons now without it coming into my head!
I hate beards but love a bit of designer stubble.

Andrewofgg Sun 17-Jan-16 14:51:32

I must ask DW if that is why she likes my beard but I won't report the answer back here!

Zorbathegeek Sun 17-Jan-16 15:20:15

I love a beard on a man but have to admit, yes, I have thought in passing of pubes, particulaly if it's a different colour to his head hair. But it doesn't put me off, and it can look so dramatic and striking (blond hair, red beard, or vice versa, for instance).

I don't like beards when they clealy have been a struggle to grow. For some men, you can see that it's been an effort, and I'm not keen on the patchy, thin type of beard. These guys tend to look best clean shaven.

Couldn't cope with a man who's bald anywhere else but his head!

FellOutOfBedTwice Sun 17-Jan-16 15:25:28

My DH has a beard and it looks nice. He keeps it neat and without it he looks 13 so he needs it there!

JanuaryJuniper Sun 17-Jan-16 15:43:51

Oh I love all these full beards that are in fashion right now, they look so sexy. I have tried to persuade dh into growing one but he won't.

micah no beard, trimmed pubes. arm pits etc is fine. but hate hairy hands or excessive hair on backs, don't like it on men either ! smile

I think it's weird to be grossed out by something that is a natural part of a man's body/body hair, particularly something so closely related to sexual maturity. Much like men who are grossed out by women's pubic hair.

Certainly we can all have preferences about either other's hair, just as we can have preferences about each other's clothes, or accent, but to be revolted by it is weird.

KitKatCustard Mon 18-Jan-16 10:59:06

I agree and have always said so!

ouryve Mon 18-Jan-16 10:59:10

YABU and a bit bloody weird.

Stubble is horrid to snog.

Moln Mon 18-Jan-16 11:03:29

I used to think this, exclusively with the goatee though. Though thinking about it it was one man in particular, he had a goatee (which didn't suit him as looked very like David Cameron) and he was a totally annoying prig. Lots of people though him a twat. So I suppose the public hair thinking grew from there (metaphorically grew; obviously)
