Yeah, I can't decide which is more annoying: shaving or grooming a beard. Fuck hairs, man.

We can agree to disagree. Though you are going against the grain here.

To piggyback another blog, how often must a beard be washed? Everyday, twice a week, never?

yadda yadda something about vaginas

Don't wash your beard with regular shampoo, it will dry out the skin underneath, giving you the beard itchies. I buy Blue Beard's for my guy and he loves it. They have a conditioner as well which makes it super soft and snuggly.

I'm a beard enthusiast.

I stared at Ewan McGregor's beardstroke gif for an uncomfortable amount of time.

Slight scruff = Yes Full beard = Ick

Nothing like kissing a guy and getting "rug burn" on your face :/ So not fun to kiss a guy with a big beard. It's all scratchy and eww.

Slight scruff is very ruggedly manly to me. And you'll look awesome & bad ass in a suit!
Think Jason Stratham :D Full beard dude makes me think Zach Galifianakis which is not hot to me. He's funny and what not but I would not say full beard man is dreamy or bad ass.

so yeah... I vote for slight scruff if that's an option

If a guy has a scratchy beard he's doing it wrong.

And risk a "Neverending Musarter Photoshop Blog?" I think not.

littlem

I have been compared to worse things. "It is better to fart and bare the shame than hold it and bare the pain," as my Great Grandmother used to say.

In my year long experience with having a beard I found out a secret truth. As much as people will tell you they are cool, and a lot of girls even told me I looked good with one, most people close to you would prefer you shaved, for one reason or another.

Pro: It's fun to paint.

Con: Hurts like hell when you're kids pull on it.

Musarter

Thanks for the sage like secret truth. My special lady friend does not mind though she prefers it trimmed but not too slick.

I sometimes think the only reason I currently have a beard is that I have become spoiled and loathe shaving.
