Lately I've been noticing all the guys on TV appearing to have a three day growth of stubble on their faces. My wife wants me clean shaven when we have sex because the stubble gives her whisker burns on her breasts, belly, and thighs. I just wonder if the looking like a "man needs a shave look" is just a fad or if most women prefer this? Do you girls like whisker burns, and my wife in a minority for not? Does this look appear more "macho" or something? The other night two of the stars of the show attended a funeral in full uniform. One a policemen, the other a naval officer. They were dressed immaculately in uniform, but had what looked like a three or four day growth of 3/8 inch stubble on their faces. Truthfully, I thought they looked like a couple of homeless people had found some uniforms. And the shows time laps over several days and the beards always stay the same length. Don't get me wrong, I get a little negligent shaving quite often out on the farm, but if I'm going to town, or getting ready to make love to my wife, I like to put forth a little effort and shower and shave. Any thoughts?
