Hello all. I've always wondered this but have never had an answer that satisfies. I was a lucky SOB and started growing my beard at 16 (Not some peach-fuzz, rat-hair thing either! A full beard.) I'm 23 now and have had it for most of that time now. But has it been driving away the ladies?! I wonder. I think I look best with it, but I think the general opinion amongst the ladies is that it would be awkward during kissing or oral sex. If any of you are curious, mine in particular is kept short and clean and trimmed. It's not soft, but it doesn't poke too much either. So let me know, what is the general opinion here on this?
