    Maybe this could be a poll. I'm just interested to see if there is any correlation between sweating and hairyness. Lol.

    Are you a person who is:
    - hairy and sweat a lot
    - hairy and do not sweat as much
    - very little hair and sweat a lot
    - very little hair and do not sweat as much


    I'm hairy and sweat a lot, and I'm getting more hair everyday, it just gets longer and thicker, :crying:. I think it's getting thicker to adapt to all the sweat I'm pouring out. But I know some people who have no hair at all, no arm pit hair, no leg hair, no arm hair. Sure it may be there, but only little specs where you can hardly see.

    Being hairy is nasty and sometimes gross. :(

    Yuk nice thread lol! If your hairy it stops anti perspirant geting to your skin so what I tend to do is trim my hair ( or sometimes shave if the ladies request it :eek: ) and then anti perspirant works a lot better!

    I used to have almost an afro (chinese guy with an afro, imagine that!) and back then I sweat mostly from my head.

    Now, I have my hair usually pretty short (maybe 1-3 cm long) and I still sweat mostly from my head.

    So, at the very least, my contribution to your reasearch is that regardless of actual LENGTH of hair (i guess more hair could be hotter) I still sweat from the same place, lol.

    I have very little body hair (keke for I guy I know :p) and I sweat buckets! Luckily, the sweat can be easily taken out with towels because hair is not in the way :D.

    (Btw, hair has NOTHING to do with mascalinity I might point out)

    lol.. ashamed to admit it but my legs are hairless! Well, there is hair.. just.. not.. that.. much.. :eek: . People ask me if i WAX my legs.. I remember in phys.ed at school; this chick asked me: 'Hey Alby.. Do you wax your legs? They're so nice..'. Was so shattered, lol..

    But back to the main topic.. I do sweat a fair bit.. I start sweating after around something like 2 minutes of hitting for warmup..

    I sweat so much my friends said I'm hyperhydrosis....

    ....................... Well I can't say no because I sweat whenever I'm outside talking to people. Like for example eating lunch in school lol.

    My shirt becomes wet and you can see a pile of sweat at the back :p:p:p

    But I"m not so hairy, atleast I don't think...

    If you are hairy on your upper body, do those hairs act as wicks to wick away your perspiration so that you feel cooler? You have more surface area to evaporate your perspiration-the skin and all those hairs holding micro-droplets of sweat. :D

    I sweat a lot; my shirt gets completely soaked front and rear after about 1 hour of moderate to heavy play, lots of hair on arms and legs.
