I think it is a little weird to blog about my “insecurity,” but now that I have a new appreciation for it it’s ok for me to talk about it. I never openly talk about stuff like manscaping and body grooming because I feel like it a very private matter. But I am changing and need to say something.
When I started puberty I began growing chest and stomach hair. I was always so embarrassed by it. I always just felt like it looked gross and unappealing. I like it on other guys, but for myself I just couldn’t. If I had to go shirtless then I would definitely shave it off. It eventually caused me folliculitis so I could only trim it. I have been doing that for a very long time now.
Then something changed. I don’t know if it is because I am older now and more mature. Maybe I just don’t care anymore. I decided a few weeks ago that I am just going to keep it because I actually like my chest/stomach hair. I think it adds something to my sexuality.
I am going to live my life in my 30’s more secure as the man that I am. I know this is going to be hard because it was such a insecurity before. People are also stupid and tactless and like to comment on other people’s bodies. I’ve never understood why people have to say something about someone else when they undoubtedly would dislike someone doing that to them. But I’ve long dealt with that from being gay, so it isn’t anything new.
My name is Valdet and I have a hairy chest.
