A new survey by Pure Profile revealed that 63 percent of men, both straight and gay, between 18-35 years admit to manscaping their body.
The research, commissioned by the new Braun BodycruZer, reveals the most common area for Aussie men to manscape is the groin region (56 percent), followed by the chest (16 percent) and back (8 percent). Adding further fuel to the manscaping debate, the research highlighted the increasing popularity of the trend, with 79 percent of Aussie men agreeing they believe attitudes towards manscaping have changed over the past decade.
Nearly 50 percent said they wouldn’t be bothered if their mates knew they did it and 14 percent said they would even recommend it to them — a trend backed by popular comedian and presenter Corinne Grant.
“Aussie men these days are quite comfortable with the idea of manscaping. I think the days of looking like you’ve just climbed out of the primordial swamp are over. As much as I loved Magnum P.I. as a child, how much hotter would he have looked without the chest rug,” she said.
“And it makes guys feel more confident. It’s clear from the research that women like a smooth chest although, unless you’re an Olympic swimmer, a complete body shave may not be the way to go. No one wants to date a slip ‘n’ slide.”
If you’re in need of a trim, the Braun BodycruZer is an all-in-one manscaping tool with a Braun power trimmer and Gillette wet shaver.
It seems the most popular tools for manscapers are clippers (39 percent) and razors (51 percent), making BodycruZer ideal with its precision electrical trimmer for an incredible level of closeness and comfort. The high-performance cutting system has several trimming attachments to help provide maximum precision and flexibility.
