Depends on how much hair we are talking about.

Personally I think some men have forgotten that they're men and have succumbed to skin lotions and moisturisers and all the lady things. I know people say it's better etc but ffs sake....soon we'll be wearing make-up to improve our looks.
I'm hairy and I couldn't give a care. nor anyone i've been in a relationship with. Thankfully my back is clear. I do draw the line at hairy backs.
I would feel completely odd waxing.

Well, a week ago, I just had ALL hair between my knees and nipples shaved off for an abdominal laparoscopic operation...so sometimes it is acceptable !

Had to think of England when my privates were shaved though...but to a Scot that's a real turnoff anyway.

Smile Re: Is it acceptable for Men to shave / wax their body hair ?

I think most people prefer partners who keep a "tidy garden" when it comes to these matters and it's totally normal IMO.

Of course there is personal preference, like I feel the only hair a woman should have should be on her head but that's really a little abnormal perhaps.

Not too abnormal as I am with you on that one, mate. Also, if his wife or girlfriend objects to a hairy body then its OK for a man to shave, wax or whatever.

Back, sack and crack I think is the norm for pedalbiking.
