This question came up in conversation last night. In particular, it was regarding hirsute Canuck forward Todd Bertuzzi. As local fans will know, Todd’s face doesn’t see a razor as often as it might. We were looking at an off-ice photo of Todd at his swarthiest, and all of the women-folk present agreed that he looked pretty fine. Like, in one woman’s words, ‘he might just throw me against the boards.’ There are plenty of examples in pop culture of some stubble being an attractive thing.
Here’s my question? Is the popular opinion that stubble is sexy? What about practicality? Is it sexy in theory, but when you get up close, is it a little too rough-and-ready? If stubble is, indeed, sexy, then how and when should the discerning man make use of it? Should I only shave every other day?
