If you think of facial and body hair as the enemy of good male grooming, then manscaping is for you. Loosely defined as the removal of male body hair, manscaping is a grooming revolution that's changing the way men look at body maintenance -- not exercise, but the niceties.

Men who want to please their partners are grabbing their razors in large numbers, determined to make their man parts smoother and more user-friendly.
