Dude on the right has a nice streak going on. As for the beard…..talk about scratchy! How well are those things attached?
I'm not sure. I think it might be glitter spray. But there is a somewhat similar female version...

Re: What's the point of having a beard??

haahha Pancakes this glittery triangle is something so so so stylish and I hope it becomes fashion Sorry for those who are into 'pheromones keeping' they'll never know the fun of shimmer

Then again this is valid for expats I'm 100% swissian males wouldn't understand what's happening ps: (for the grammar crew I made that word up ' in all conscience')

Ato, about those couples , hmmm ) now that I'm going so far into this research I can tell how perhaps, couples after certain amount of years being together they dont even kiss much or do other thing so it'is like "beard? hmm whatever" "no beard? yeah, whatever" ) But, if we take the male out and make him go around and seduce then it'll be interesting to see if the beard is an obstacle or not

A beard touching my skin makes me feel a bit nauseous, it grosses me out. Absolutely no issue with body hair (within reason, the full gorilla suit look is not my preference), but anything past ten days of not shaving your face is a hard pass.

However, I can appreciate the beauty of a well-groomed proper beard and am not mad at the "old-school hairstyle with a neat beard" look. "Lazy" beards outright disgust me, I think a lot of men don't realise that looking after a beard is actually not much less work than keeping your face clean shaven.
Kittster , soooo spot on. That's the thing and I think we've debunked this theory, men got caught lying ) Like "well it's easier to take care of it" by growing it when in reality if you take care of it , it'll be just as annoying as regular shaving .

Now that we've heard testimonies of how the beard gets some sweat, humidity, food drops -who-knows-what-else, I seriously am curious to find out how do they clean the beard everyday? in the shower lathering vigourously ? hmm

Chocolate sauce is temporary, glitter is eternal.

Re: What's the point of having a beard??

Ah, funny. I grew my beard & moustache for Movember last year, and at the end of the month my wife said, "Keep on growing it until you don't have to wear a mask any more."
Eight months later ... and no end in sight. Trimmed the beard once (in January) but haven't cut the moustache at all since the first of Movember. Perhaps it will last the whole year, until the next one ...

Also, I don't often have trouble with my facial hair getting involved with my food or drinks - apart from beer with a thick head or ice cream in a cone. The ice cream cone is especially challenging - I have to use my tongue far more, and occasionally my teeth.

Taking care of mine takes a lot less time than shaving.
While showering, after washing the hair on top of my head, I work a little hair conditioner into my beard. Just before finishing my shower, I rinse out the conditioner.
After roughly towel-drying, I comb the hair on my head and then use a little beard-comb to comb my facial hair.

I save about three minutes a day, on average, as the conditioning takes almost no time and the combing not very much.

Glitter is evil.
As a teacher, I've worked in classes (as a casual/temp) where the main class teacher used glitter (one time two weeks before my visit, according to a student) and I still came out with glitter on various places on my clothing, body, and teaching kit.
There is a special place in hell reserved for those who use glitter in or near my classroom!

Re: What's the point of having a beard??

I wonder if there's a male version of the Vajazzle. I guess that would be like a PENAZZLE.

Re: What's the point of having a beard??

I tried a beard for years. But I kept wanting it shorter and shorter. In the end, I shaved it off, and kept going and shaved my head as well.

All other body hair intact.

Re: What's the point of having a beard??

I've had a beard most of the times since I was 20, except for a few short periods with only a moustache.

The point is to not have to shave daily.

Re: What's the point of having a beard??

Can the guys present in this topic do a PENAZZLE and then send me the before/after pics ? I need it for this scientific research that I'm doing, is this too much to ask

araqyil I can understand if you'd end up with some sand or thorns or something irritating, itchy etc.. But glitter? what did glitter do ? standing there shining... I really dont understand humans anymore

Re: What's the point of having a beard??

NotAlthere, I bet you shaved some 10y off your face as well I bet it takes years off man's face. Which is why so many baby faces do grow beard so they look older and more masculine .

Nah. I've looked 50 since I was 20. With or without beard.

I like watching a guy shave. Such focus.. That and driving. Or cooking.

That said, every man should wax (wax! not vax) at least once a lifetime. I think Finkum had a point, there.

The problem is that to continuously cultivate that macho 4 day unshaven look, it is necessary to shave every day to remove the last 24 hours growth. Quite a lot of effort really to maintain an unkempt appearance.
