Why Wax/Shave Bodyhair?

Why do guys wax or completely shave their torsos? I just genuinely don't get it. Trimming is fine but completely smooth? Mystifies me.

    i don't shave my front but like my back and shoulders to be hair free.

    I trim everything on the front but can't stand back hair so that gets taken off completely.

    Because if you're body fat is low, everything looks much better (eg, chest and abs) with no hair there.  Plus you then get used to the look and hate the hairy look.  
     
    Then as you age, you get the hairy shoulders and back, which is disgusting to me as it's just pubes on your shoulders.  I veet that every few weeks.  I am actually close to going to whole hog and remove arm/hand hair but I think that's a step too far and would look daft as it grows back.

    I can't win, mrs hates the hairy look, but when I shave and the stubble comes thru she comes out on a rash LOL.
     
    I shave down below, trim and shape torso fluff, shave armpits and upper arm and trim forearms, shave back.
     
    Shaving my head too means that the only grey hairs I get are on my chest. I don't like that reminder so best to minimise it

    Just to add..... if I had decent legs I'd most likely shave them too.

    I just don't think that's true. Fair enough if you have a really thick rug covering your whole body, but you can be hairy and trim it down and I think it actually enhances a physique as it adds a contrast which highlights definition. 
     
    I do agree with hairy backs/shoulders being dealt with though - that's never a good look!
     
    Oh and NotFortheWeak I definitely don't have a sexual identity crisis I know which side my bread's buttered!

    I just can't cope with that at all. Unless you're a professional swimmer! I think that would be bizarre, to have totally smooth legs! It actually gives me the shivers.

    I think the OP is grooming MT members ;) 
     
    Anyways I shave because quite frankly if i don't I would be one continuous mass of hair from the cheekbones down to my ankles. My back and chest hair is like carpet and would go up my neck unchecked like a vine on the side of a house. Luckily I am not that dark haired but I am 100% covered in the fcking stuff. 
     
    Just did a quick google to find an image and frankly wish i hadn't but i would resemble this if it was left unkept.

    I think I'll try the smooth look when I get some abs, why not!
     
    Not sure how I'll shave my back though?

    If we all liked or desired the same look, the world would be a pretty boring, monotonous place. Variety is the spice of life and all that.
