Comments: Hair...

Lanugo: baby hair usually gone by the time they are born or soon afterwards
Vellus: short pigment-less covering almost the entire body
Terminal: the hairs that you see and are most concerned with. These can be broken down into a number of subcategories based on locations (axillary, cerebral, pubic, etc.) and can provide variations, but it also depends on the person and usually is highly dependent on testosterone levels and the way the follicles react to the testosterone. However, even though the appearance may be different, the basic structure of all terminal hair is the same. As hair thins, it reacts to testosterone and other hormone, reverting to a similar state as the vellus hairs.

And you are begging for the ladies to start going to your "for pay" site... crotch-blogging, free-balling, and now open nakedness on the back deck while you proclaim your self examination? Just make a calendar and sell it...

You know, lots of guys *I* know play video games... Maybe you could try that...

And thanks for answering his question RSM - otherwise he might have gotten busy with the camera again. ;)

Geez Eric, you got me thinking -- you could write a whole chapter completely devoted to men and their body hair in Our Bodies Ourselves, the American wimmen's trusty book about female sexuality.

And how does each type of hair know how long to grow? Armpit and pubic hair only grows so long. The hair on your arms and shoulders, a little shorter than that. What if it all grew as long as the hair on your head? Can you imagine having beaded braids on your ampit hair?

I'm just sayin'.....

Dude... seriously... you need to get a job.

Bejus! I'm surprised that you didn't ANALyze your butt-hairs, too.

.. I would have, Rob, but my ass ain't hairy...

Standing on your deck comparing a nose hair to one from your naughty bits? Maybe you ought to consider collecting stamps or some shit.

TMI!! Getting just a wee bit too introspective, aren't ya? I'm sure that Fiona will tell you that you have little fine hairs on your butt just like on your neck, dude ... but it's really none of our bizness anywho.

Why do I stop by here and read this? What mortal sin could be worth this agony? It might be time for a contract.

I wish I had a deck where I could be naked. Nothing like the feel of the sun and the breeze on your birthday suit.

Posted by vicki on April 24, 2006 12:29 PM

I understand... completely.

Just wait until the ear hairs start coming in.

Might as well invest in one of these now:
