I just finished listening to the audiobook version of Unqualified by Anna Faris, who played Christy on the TV show “Mom.” I rarely pay attention to TV stars and seldom read about them. In fact, before this book, the last show biz book I read was a biography of Walt Disney. Anyway, much of the book is drivel that sounds like a ghostwriter dashed out a quickie biography. I did learn that before “Mom,” Faris starred in some of the worst bombs Hollywood ever farted out. Most notoriously, she was the lead in the “Scary Movie” lead-footed horror movie parodies.

Anyway, before reading this book, all I knew about her was her role in “Mom.” I admit that I love how she plays her character. The book came out in 2017 and is full of glowing love for her husband, Chris. Apparently, he is a famous actor. I have no idea. Mrs. Lion tells me that they divorced. Now she is engaged to someone else I never heard of. So what.

I didn’t write this post to waste your time reading Hollywood gossip. I admit to having a small crush on Faris. It isn’t sufficient to make me do any research on her life and activities. I like her in “Mom.” She left the show this season. Too bad. Anyway, she has a section in her book about body hair. That holds some interest for me. It turns out that she had most pubic hair lasered off. She wrote that she was warned not to do it because “Bush is back.” Really?

That’s too bad. I wondered if this alarming news is true. Apparently, “Vogue” magazine pronounced that bush was back a year ago. An article I found said that COVID stopped people from getting waxed and so many women just let it all grow back. Apparently, the pubic hair pundits have declared that we are back to the ’70s.

No bush here! I’ve looked like this for over 20 years.

On the male front (See what I did?), women strongly prefer some degree of manscaping. Less than ten percent preferred ungroomed male pubes. I prefer no pubic hair on me. I’ve had what is called a Hollywood for many years. That means no hair at all around the penis, on the balls, and in and on the butt. Mrs. Lion has been waxing me for some time. Years ago, I had laser treatments that permanently removed all of the hair above my shaft and most on my balls. There is a stubborn patch just above the shaft that the laser didn’t kill.

For her part, Mrs. Lion says she doesn’t care about my manscaping. However, she comments when that patch of hair grows out and tickles her nose. I think she probably prefers all of the hair gone. My hair has been removed for over twenty years. I can’t remember what I looked like with pubic hair. I don’t miss it. Mrs. Lion doesn’t groom down there. She has very little pubic hair. If she gets interested in sex again, maybe she will revisit shescaping.

Things appear to be settling down after the migration of our blog. That’s not to say it’s completely smooth sailing going forward, but at least I understand what the problem was and corrected it. It’s been five days since my last orgasm. I’ve been feeling decently horny all day. I told Mrs. Lion and she was happy to get that news. Having the worry of a crashing blog off my mind doesn’t hurt a bit.

Sooner or later female sex bloggers end up writing at least one post about penises. Not surprisingly, we male bloggers tend to avoid saying too much on that subject. Since I am heterosexual, I have no visceral interest in other men’s sexual equipment. I am extremely interested in my own. I’ve measured it many times when flaccid. This was necessary to provide information when I ordered custom male chastity devices. At some point I measured my erection as well. I was curious about how I stacked up, so to speak.

it turns out that 6 inches is very good

The average erect penis is about five and three-quarter inches long and 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Mine is 6 inches long and 1 1/2 inches in diameter. I guess that makes me slightly above average. Yippee! It’s always good to be above average. Based on my reading, it’s good to be a little bit above average but not terribly desirable to be too large. Too much girth makes for painful vaginal insertion, not to mention anal or oral fun. I have a sort of type “O” penis — the universal donor. Most women are more than willing to accept my size penis in any orifice they make available.

Mrs. Lion uses a dildo considerably wider and longer than my penis when she pegs me. When it comes to pegging and male anal play, training him to accept larger visitors is part of the BDSM fun. Even though it’s uncomfortable for me, I agree. I like it when I am able to accept a larger dildo. It doesn’t take long before it feels good nestled deep in my anus.

It appears that most heterosexual women enjoy viewing the erect penis of someone they like. Based on my reading and visits to Twitter, they don’t welcome unsolicited pictures of strangers’ sex organs. When it comes to the rest of the male sexual anatomy, the balls, opinions seem to vary widely in terms of being interesting to women. Some women love them and enjoy fondling them and even putting them in their mouths. Others try to do their best to ignore them. They don’t willingly touch them, even when masturbating the penis attached to them.

Opinions also vary about whether balls are more attractive when warm and loose swinging freely between their owner’s legs. Others prefer them tight, pulled up close to the penis. Mrs. Lion and I haven’t discussed this topic, but I think she prefers them loose and hanging. I know she enjoys a rear view when I bend over with my legs open. She definitely enjoys fondling them and sometimes painfully swatting them when we play.

Hairy balls or smooth?

Male pubic hair grooming is relatively recent activity. My pubic hair has been completely gone for more than 25 years. Call me a trendsetter! I like the way it looks and feels without hair. More and more men and women are following my lead and remove all of their pubic hair. I’ve always felt that a woman without pubic hair is far more interesting to view. Mrs. Lion doesn’t remove her hair, but it isn’t important. Her growth is light and I get a good view of her vagina even with untrimmed pussy hair. She’s said that she doesn’t care whether I have pubic hair or not. It’s up to me.

Even if I didn’t aesthetically prefer hairlessness, wearing a male chastity device is far more comfortable on a bald pubic area. Pubic hair tends to catch on the chastity device and pull uncomfortably. With smooth skin, there is no pull and the device is painless to wear. Speaking of chastity devices, I haven’t seen women comment on how they feel about their men wearing them. Let me clarify, even the ones who say they like their men locked up, don’t offer an opinion as to the aesthetics of seeing a penis in a male chastity device. Most of the devices aren’t that attractive and don’t do a great deal toward making my weenie more appealing. They are utilitarian and designed to prevent the one thing most women prefer when they look at a penis: an erection.

Erections are both entertaining and aesthetically pleasing to many women. They are entertaining because they reveal their owners’ sexual interest. It’s hard to appear nonchalant sporting wood. It’s also embarrassing during play. Mrs. Lion applies very painful tiny clothespins to the head of my penis. I really hate having them there. However, my penis stays hard as a rock. She says that means I really like it. It’s hard to argue with that logic. There was a line in the TV sitcom “Becker”, a teenager was consulting with Dr. Becker complaining that he kept getting erections at odd times. He said, “I even got one while I was vacuuming for my mother. Now she thinks I like cleaning.”

I admit it. I have definite preferences in terms of body hair. I’ve always preferred no pubic hair. Mine has been gone since the late 1980s. Even in the hairy 1970s, while I had a lot of fur down there, I much preferred women with sparse pubic hair.

Long before it became fashionable for men to remove body hair, I’ve taken some of mine off. During the 1990s I actually got laser hair removal treatments to get rid of my pubic hair permanently. Most of it is still gone, some stubbornly remains and requires Mrs. Lion to wax it.

hairy and bald male genitals
While I’m not attracted to male genitals (I like the ones on the right because they’re mine), the hairless ones definitely look better to me. This is true whether they are mine or not.

It’s rare to see a photograph of a naked woman who still has pubic hair. It also appears that most of the male images are also sans pubic hair as well. I decided to find examples of both male and female genitals with and without hair. The image above on the left is a fair comparison of hairy and hairless male genitals. Aside from the anatomical differences between the two males (I’m the one on the right), I prefer the hairless look.

compare hairy and hairless pussies
In my mind, there is no comparison between a furry and hairless pussy. Female external genitalia are way too beautiful to hide behind hair.

When it comes to female genitals, I absolutely prefer a bald pussy. Even though Mrs. Lion doesn’t shave hers, it’s the sole exception to that rule. External female genitalia are beautiful to me. Pubic hair only obstructs it and turns its fine definition into a fuzzy mess.

I realize that pubic hair is a personal preference. However I think it’s interesting that there have been distinct trends in both male and female body hair removal. I’ve noticed that female hair removal has always been acceptable. Even in the hairy 70s, no one blinked at a shaved pussy. That wasn’t true of men. Men without pubic hair would be prejudged as gay or effeminate.

This was true in the 90s and even the early 2000’s. I was always a little nervous about strangers seeing my lack of pubic hair. Now, it’s absolutely commonplace for men to take off the fur. I’m glad. Mrs. Lion has been waxing virtually all of my body. The only hair that she leaves in place is on my lower legs and my arms. Everything else: thighs, pubic and butt hair, chest, pits, and back are hairless.

I think it looks good. Apparently, so do a lot of other guys. You can find ads for waxing studios that offer male hair removal services that include all of the areas Mrs. Lion removes and more. It’s an increasingly popular option for guys.

It used to be believed that men who prefer women without pubic hair were nascent pedophiles. They were accused of liking the hairless look of prepubescent girls. That’s just silly. I can understand where this came from. After all, only children are naturally hairless.

There are lots of theories about why we do or don’t have hair in various places. Underarm and pubic hair are believed to perform a sexual function. The story goes that the hair in those places retain pheromones secreted with sweat. These pheromones act as attractants for potential sexual partners.

There’s some science to back that up. More than one study has been conducted where men have worn T-shirts for a period of time that allowed them to catch those underarm scents. The T-shirts were put in airtight jars. Women at various points in their menstrual cycle were asked to smell the T-shirts. Most of the time, they found the odors offensive. However, when they were at the most fertile point in their cycles, they found the same odors sexy. Presumably, the same would be true of odors produced by the genitals.

This confirms that pheromones both attract and repel. It’s supposed that pubic and underarm hair would capture and retain those smells. Given that most of us bathe every day, the odor-keeping value of that hair would be negligible.

Given that the maximum fertility part of the woman’s cycle lasts for three days or so, it probably isn’t a good idea to send armpit smell the way of a woman a man is trying to attract. Fortunately, we have less primal ways to attract one another.

hairless and Naked with chastity device locked on
I like the way I look without body hair. Here I am after a recent waxing session.

Nevertheless, a lot of us have visual preferences when it comes to body hair. Mrs. Lion’s says that she’s indifferent to whether or not I have hair anywhere on my body. I prefer myself without.

I’m very glad that a lot of people understand that the presence or absence of body hair says nothing about the sexual preferences of the person. I am solidly heterosexual and I prefer myself smooth. I know gay men who are turned off by guys without body hair. They like their men hairy.

I’m lucky that Mrs. Lion finds me attractive. I’m grateful she indulges my preference for smooth, hairless body.

hairless arm pits and nipples
Here I am, freshly waxed. I don’t think my hairless pits and nipples look effeminate.

While I think I will always be concerned about people discovering that I wear a male chastity device, I’m no longer self-conscious about shedding my body hair. Apparently, the world has become much more tolerant of male body grooming. There are quite a few products aimed at helping guys remove hair.

I have an obvious interest in the subject since I have been removing body hair for many years. If you’re wondering what this has to do with enforced male chastity, let me explain. Male chastity represents a significant deviation from the stereotypical view of the male. We are supposed to be sexually aggressive and in control of sexual situations. While we are expected to be considerate and obtain permission to mount a female, we are to be the initiators. Women have the absolute right to say no, but they aren’t expected to initiate sexual activity.

Obviously, if a woman locks her partner’s penis in a chastity device and keeps the key, she has the exclusive right to initiate or withhold sex. This is not the norm, but the practice is clearly gaining popularity. Even without the hardware, it appears that initiating sex has become more democratic. While it may not be encouraged, female initiation is certainly acceptable.

In the 70s and 80s, this wasn’t the case. Traditional, male-dominant mating behavior was the overwhelming practice. Also, men didn’t remove or trim body hair. Sure, there were exceptions, me being one of them, but modified body hair was rare enough to draw disapproving stares when encountered.

There was a general sense that male grooming, particularly removal of body hair was effeminate. After all, women removed body hair to make themselves more appealing to men. Since women were expected to accept men au naturel, any mail attempt at grooming couldn’t be intended to appeal to women.

As women’s liberation extended to more and more people, I think that women began to feel free to express preferences regarding male grooming. For the record, the first woman I bottomed to, tied me down and shaved my pubic hair telling me she really didn’t like hairy men. She also shaved my underarms. I found that scandalous.

She didn’t attempt to rationalize her actions. Later, much later, she said that men didn’t like women with hairy pits and pubes, why shouldn’t women have a similar preference? Mrs. Lion has made it clear that she has no preference in terms of my personal grooming. I’ve learned to prefer myself hair free. In fairness to her, she is neutral on the subject of me wearing a chastity device. That doesn’t mean she has no strong feelings about me and sex. Just that she doesn’t care whether I use a mechanical device to prevent masturbation or just use willpower to prevent it. She understands I find wearing a chastity device exciting and is happy to indulge my kink.

That doesn’t mean she doesn’t care. Since I’ve expressed my desire to be locked in a chastity device, she will enforce my choice. From the very start she made it clear that if I say I want to be locked up, I will be locked up and I don’t get to change my mind.

Due to the recent health issues I’ve had, I’ve been allowed to be wild. Mrs. Lion has not required me to wear my device. We haven’t had that “talk” yet where she will resume the hard line requiring 24/7 device wearing. I have the feeling that the time has come for that.

I do enjoy times when I’m allowed to be wild. During those times I can have erections. Obviously, when locked up, erections are impossible. On Saturday night Mrs. Lion unlocked me and attempted to edge me. I had no luck getting particularly excited. I don’t understand why this happened. I wonder if it’s tied to the stricter chastity device regime. Since she is showing no sign of leaving my device off, we’ll see if my ability to get to the edge returns even though I’m caged.

Meanwhile, she’s removed all of my body hair, other than my arms. She waxes me. There is a very nice side effect to being waxed. The hair grows back is finer and sparser. Even though it’s been several months since she’s waxed my chest and legs, they don’t look nearly as hairy as they did before she began waxing me.

Waxing is difficult for her. I really appreciate her efforts to keep me bare. I’ve grown to really enjoy the hairless look. I don’t think I can be mistaken for a female just because my body hair is gone. Thankfully, in 2019 most guys wouldn’t be overly disturbed in the presence of a hairless lion. I imagine that most women rather like the look.

Male submission, on the other hand, is not widely considered acceptable. Apparently social norms change more slowly than fashion. Even well established dominant women are careful about being too overt in front of the general public. Both within and outside of the BDSM community, female-dominant behavior is considered kinky.

There have been some inroads. It’s no longer considered strange if a woman picks up the check in a restaurant. 20 years ago such behavior would have drawn unfavorable attention. Popular women’s magazines feature articles on female-dominant activities like pegging and spanking. Yes, they are discussed in terms of being bedroom games, but that doesn’t matter. The general public is being educated on how to do very dominant things to men.

I’ve often referred to the fact that study after study reveals that more than 80% of both men and women fantasize about spanking and being spanked. Articles about spanking appear regularly in mainstream magazines. Look at how popular “50 Shades of Gray” has been. That story featured a male-dominant theme. However, it treated sensation play and BDSM in general as something central to the theme. The public ate it up.

It’s not surprising that those of us who practice male chastity often adopt other power-related activities. Female sexual dominance has definitely entered the mainstream. Wearing a chastity device may be a fringe, kinky practice. But spanking, pegging, and taking the sexual initiative is definitely a mainstream female practice. We live in marvelous times!
