French dating site Mec à croquer (literally guys to bite into…) surveyed 1000 men and women on their body hair preferences.

The infographic below shows their findings but broadly put the following tastes were expressed:

  • Both sexes appreciate at least some grooming.
  • Pubic hair on women is seen as highly unacceptable with only 24% of men ‘approving’ of its presence on the female body.
  • Back hair on men was met with similar levels of disapproval.
  • The ‘hipster effect’ continues to hold strong at least for male faces with beards, moustaches and the unshaven look garnering approval. Although female facial hair is seen as less desirable than hairy underarms.
