Men: hairy or smooth?

My post about height, which has never been an important amatory determinant for me set me to thinking about the fixations I do have.
Chest hair. You know I don't think I've ever slept with anybody who had much. Some guys were so smooth I wonder if they shaved their chests. Not that I met any of them in the nude or with their shirt off. I don't think I ever mentioned it when I had personal ads out.
Given my prejudices it isn't unlikely that I did tend to go with guys who did shave away their chest hairs. Of course they didn't look like they had an excess of testosterone.
Trying to short through memories of guys in movies and TV with their shirt off it seems like they were either smooth of only mildly hairy. Possibly some of them did have their chests manicured because the studios though an excess unseemly. You can never underestimate the nutty fears of folks in the entertainment business.
As actors have become increasingly muscular over the last twenty years I'm sure there must've been an increase in body shaving. The sculpted lines don't show up nearly so were under hair. Bodybuilders have subjected themselves to all sorts of tormentful wax treatments for that reason.
I was always glad to be moderately hairy. Seemed to please the guys I went with. More self-selection. And when I was young I did leave an extra button open as an advertisement. Even if that drove some boys away it was for the best. Better to not discover the disappointing truth at the worst moment.
So, lascivious gentle reader, do you care if a guy has chest hair? I don't mean the proto-werewolves with hair on their backs. Though I'm sure that is was pleases cubs most in their bear daddies.
