Types of men’s bodies
The body of each man looks different. There are no rules for what a man’s body should look like. Bodies can differ in, for example:
- skin colour;
- general shape;
- amount and colour of pubic hair and body hair.
Some men shave their pubic hair or body hair, others do not. This is a choice.
The way the body looks is not important for the way it functions.
