Two thirds of Irish women want you to shave off your beard

Blasphemy, we say!

MEN! DO YOU like your beards? Well snap out of it, cos the women of Ireland can’t bear to kiss your unshaven faces.

A new survey by Gillette has revealed that two thirds of Irish women prefer kissing their partner when he’s clean shaven. Why? Because facial hair is “scratchy”.

It also tells us women are more likely to give men with beards quick pecks, reserving long, passionate kisses for men with faces as smooth as a baby’s bum.

Even more salt is rubbed in the bearded man’s wounds as according to the survey, only one in ten women find facial hair on a man sexy.

Hang on a second – what? This is heresy. Take a look at these fine men and tell us you don’t want to smooch them all over their whiskery faces.
