I've heard a lot of women say that they link a full head of hair on a man with sexual virility and attraction. We all know there are many products geared towards men who have receding hairlines or are losing their hair. Of course, personality and love will override everything if you're in an established relationship and a guy starts losing his hair, in the same way that you're supposed to be able to overlook your significant other gaining a few pounds.

But my question to the ladies is... if you were set up on a blind date with a guy, or when you first look at a man... would it make a difference to you if he was balding in terms of your immediate sexual attraction to him and/or desire to enter into a potentially long-term relationship?

I'm sure the age of the people answering this thread will factor into their feelings, but I'm just wondering how much of a difference (if at all) it makes to the beautiful ladies of Lush in terms of first impressions.

Hair loss itself doesn't affect a man's attractiveness for me - it's how he deals with the loss that's important. It doesn't look good if he tries too hard to hang on to what he's got left by letting it grow all long and wispy so you can see through it...or heaven forbid, starts sporting a combover! Cut it close to the scalp or beat the hair at its own game and shave it off.

personally i love bald men :) and really for me physical looks have little to do with my attraction. a not so hot man who is funny and smart (smarter the better) becomes more and more good looking to me as i get to know him. and by the same token a super hot guy who is not so smart and has no sense of humor loses some his good looks to me.

i know its cliche but for me its really whats inside and not out that turns me on. when my mind connects with a mans mind then the attraction is wild.

Until my bf I have never ever liked hairy men. He has shaved his head because of a receding hair line. I met him after he had shaved his head but i have seen pictures of him right b4 and i still think he's sexy as hell then. Now his body is a different story, he is very hairy. Even after declaring many times hairy men were not attractive to me, I wouldn't have it any other way. He has alway been sexy to me. I guess it really is about the person that attracts u to them even if they are everything thats not ur "type".

I agree with Lisa-- It really is how the guy takes it. There are some guys who really don't look good bald, but that's very few. In my opinion, hair only has a small fraction of attractiveness. Receding hairlines are fine. Hair in other places is what I worry about, not what isn't on the head.

My husband has just recently gotten to that point and boy oh boy is he holding on!! It's definalty time to let it go. He has alway had somewhat long hair so it's hard for him, so he claims lol. I don't feel like i've become any less sexually attracted to him I find it kind of funny icon_smile He will come around and will have to shave it off and i'm sure he'll be sexy as hell it just sucks because he is only 24, but it gives me lots of time to get used to it =)

In this 'perfect world'.. with perfect bodies, perfect hair, perfect smells and teasts, perfect houses and perfect cars, when we are bombardment from all around what is perfect for us and that only what we deserve is perfection than is really hard to see on first blind date beyond someone who doesn't count as perfection.

That is why I keep saying that the most arousing thing for me is self-confidence. If guy who doesn't suits the standard of perfection has self-confidence and charm I am first to say that I would give him a opportunity to seduce me.

Personaly for me perfection is not sexy, neither when guy is cocky because he knows that he looks good.. that just doesn't turn me on.

Your out at social function and look across the room and see a man with a completely bald head many of us a few years ago, may not have put ourselves where that man would notice you or me. Could really be a shame because he may just be the guy that would really rock and roll your heart and body.

Today with so many guys shaving their head at the first sign of balding and many more shave just for style, I would think this would much less of an issue.

Hair or amount of it is no issue to me, is IS how he deals with it and carries himself that makes the difference. I mean, look at Patrick Stewart, not the tallest guy on the show, down to a tiny fringe of hair, oldest guy on the show, not the most muscular, but damn, the man just oozed sex appeal!! It's because he was confident and cool as all get out! Same thing with Bruce Willis, so his hair's gone, he's still a cocky SOB who knows he's still got it. Hubby has a full head, but my oh my is it going grey these days, but maybe being a daddy has something to do with that....?dontknow

I want a guy who takes care of himself and is confident about his own body. If he's losing his hair, that's just a minor detail. Don't comb it over, wear it long in the back, or do any other ridiculous things and it won't matter a bit to me that your hair is thinning. I love a nice shaved dome anyway.
