Bantering About Beards


How do you feel about facial fur? Are you pro-beard or anti? Personally I don’t like facial hair except for a little scruff perhaps…but I know there are other bloggers out there who feel differently. What about you? 


Gillette has a theory that women don’t like face fuzz. They are even hypothesizing in a new mini documentary that due to an increasing number of furry-faced fellas, we as a whole aren’t getting our mack on anymore! Check out the video (it’s so cute) and see what you think.

crazy-full-beardsrsly Ryan, why would you cover up that adorable face?

Is facial hair killing the art of the makeout sesh? For those of us who have experienced the painful reality of beard-related facial irritation from a little too much face time with someone, I think so! Although I’m pretty sure most of you would make out with Ryan Gosling with or without the beard, amirite?

This past November, Mr. Boyfriend participated in the Movember movement and grew out a mustache. He is not the hairiest guy in the world so he was surprised when it actually sorta grew in full! He was kind of enjoying playing around with changing his look so he ended up keeping the ‘stache through Christmas. I hated it. Mustaches tickle. They get in the way of smooching. Do you guys know how hard it is to kiss when you’re literally TICKLING OUR NOSES? Stifling sneezes = not a turn on. While I can appreciate the majesty of certain mustaches out there (example: Tom Selleck), I gotta say I was relieved when he finally agreed to shave it for Christmas.

Now, thank goodness Mr. Boyfriend can’t really grow a full beard, so he won’t ever go for the long beard. I’m really not a fan of long, scraggly beards (*cough* Brad Pitt, *cough*). If a guy is gonna have facial hair, I would at least hope he’d groom it. Trim it, keep it in check. Give it a shape. Don’t look quite so homeless or Mountain Man-like. Guys can look fine, and even sexy, with some stubble or a short beard.

So what say you, dear readers? Are you a fan of the fuzz, or a champion of the clean cut? To some degree I think it depends on the guy. I mean Tom Selleck without his mustache is just plain weird. But Ashton Kutcher with his creepy post-Demi beard? No thank you. I prefer Mr. Boyfriend completely clean-shaven. Stubble hides his dimples! ;)
