    Shave my chest about once every 2 weeks, and sometimes the trail as well--depending on my moods. I'm still young (20), and in pretty good shape so I do think it looks good.
    On the other hand, men's magazines put down chest-shaving all the time, so maybe I'm bizarre.
    As someone mentioned earlier, the irritation only happens if you've never shaved, or haven't in a while.

    Man, you can find anything on here. I was witching my two year old take a bath last night, got bored, and started shaving my chest. I have a pretty hairy chest. I shaved one boob. I have been working out for years, and have been incredibly frustrated about how little definition my chest has. After shaving, I have pecs! I couldn't believe it. It is truly amazing. Now, whether it is a good thing or not, or whether I will shave any more of my chest or gut (what might lie there, I wonder!), I cannot say.

    I am hairy as all get out, shoulders, chest and a little on the back. I use the Norelco body groomer and it works perfectly. I HIGHLY recommend it.

    Link? I'm tried of waxing (expensive, the hair growing back is annoying because it causes a bit of irritation when coming out of the skin etc.). Is the finish very clean or can you still see little hairs?

    I've been tattooed over my spine and ribs, pierced my own nose and ears, broken countless fingers etc, and let me tell you that getting my chest waxed was hands down the most painful experience I've ever had to go through. I've had my back waxed dozens of times and that feels like a blowjob compared to getting my chest waxed. I will never EVER do that again.

    You must have fine hairs on your chest. I'm hairy all over, and it's thick. I have like 3 hairs growing out of a single pore (or whatever they're called). It's fucked.

    You guys are making a big deal out of nothing. Shaving your chest is just plain fucking stupid.

    I am pretty damn hairy. Use mangroomer on the back and shoulders/upper arms. The rest gets trimmed down to about #2 every few weeks with the clippers. DONE.

    The only chick that would ever want a shaved chest is an immature little girl.

    I don't shave mine but I do trim it to a 3/4" - 1" length to keep it neat and so I can dry off faster. My wife LOVES a hairy chest.

    I have a super hairy front side and I started shaving it a year ago. I love it! I wish I started doing that years ago. I use a Phillops Norelco personal shaver and buzz it smooth every three days or so. It does not take long to do and it looks great.

    I've got a pretty nice coat of straight hair on my chest that can get pretty long, so I trim it with a #3 and call it a day. Looks a lot more presentable, muscle definition is good, it's not itchy, and every girl I've been with loves a hairy chest.

    I use my Andis and trim it down with the 1A blade. I use the same length on my hair so I knock them both out at the same time.

    I would have suggested waxing to begin with. None of this irritation business, and the results are good for about a month. plus, people say that the hair grows back less thick, but i haven't really seen those kinds of results. definitely doesn't grow back thicker though, which is what most people are afraid of.

    no i dont think you should. there will be areas across your upper body that are still hairy other than your chest and it'll just feel out of place. plus shaving it repeatedly is going to become a chore

    not uless it guaranteed you more action from your GF lol

    I just moved out into my own place and I'm so cheap that I haven't bought a pair of clippers... I use scissors and just trim everything down to an acceptable level.

    I've never been with a girl that doesn't like a hairy chest. How old is she??

    I've done it with a razor before. Of course, I didn't just do the chest, I also did my stomach, shoulders still do that one) and my man area (ditto). I find that some women like it at first, when you're first going out but then want you to grow it out so you're more "safe". Now, I just keep it trim unless I'm going to a lingerie party or something like that, then I might shave it.

    I never got red or itchy, even when it was growing back out. However, you do get prickly in a few days so you either have to keep shaving it often or risk exfoliating any woman that tries to lay on you for the next 2 weeks. Also, as it grows back, it'll look patchy for a little while... not the most attractive look my friend.

    Muscle definition-wise, you can't beat a clean shave. If you actually have them, you won't ever look like you're 12.
