Liz Porter at The Age has a good article (with a funny photo) on the trend toward hair removal among men:
These men are part of the new trend for “manscaping” — the Queer Eye for the Straight Guy term for male hair removal. They regularly trim or remove their pubic and buttock hair — or, in their words, “tidy up the crack and sack”.
Melbourne waxing salon proprietors say that male customer numbers have tripled over the past five years, with some performing about 50 “back, crack and sack” waxings each week.
Cosmetic physicians have also reported an increase over the past year in men seeking laser hair removal.
A new study also confirms that most younger heterosexual men are embracing the buff, hairless look that was once the preserve of gay men and body builders.
