On Men and Hair

So I am standing in the queue, waiting to pay for some clothes that we’re buying. A couple ahead of me is studying with immense concentration a poster with an almost naked man in Calvin Klein undies. Woman tells man that she thinks the hairless and gym-going-type man in the poster is a hottie.

The man with the woman who is perhaps a hopeful lover, husband or boyfriend is miffed. He tells her – “You think he’s hot but he isn’t. Imagine if you were to touch his chest – what would you feel?”

She says She imagined it would be smooth. He tells her that she wouldn’t like smooth because he wouldn’t feel like a caveman. She looks exasperated. He tells her, “You don’t know how lucky you are to have a hairy guy like me.”

She rolls her eyes when she catches me smiling and grins once he walks ahead to pay at the counter.

    he is thinking too little.

  5. People who base their expectations of perfection on Hollywood films or stylised imagery such as the CK ad are bound to find it all ending in tears.

    I am guessing that if the man had ogled at an Aishwarya Rai poster and said she was a hottie and he imagines her skin to be like silk, the woman would not have liked it much. For he can get rid of bodily hair but an ugly/ average woman can hardly get pretty in a jiffy.

    Reminds me of that alleged exchange between Churchill and Lady Astor (“Winston, you are drunk”. “Lady Astor, you are ugly but I will be sober tomorrow”.).

  6. Shefaly just commented on my blog that women date feminised men, but don’t marry them- which is brilliant news I think- because really the point is, would the Abercrombie guy be able to change a lightbulb?

    glad I came here- lovely blog!
