| Shirtlessnesss is a new term used to describe the habit of going around shirtless,
adopted by a great deal of men nowadays.
That's a custom which is becoming more common through the years, and in hot days,
many barechested men (usually young) can be seen on the streets and even in
commercial places like shops and supermarkets.
In Europe (specially in Holland and England) and Australia, for instance, many
barechesters walk around, enjoying their lives the best way they can.
What's the point of going out not wearing a shirt? Well, there are many reasons. First of
all, the comfortable sensation that this practice can give you: feeling the sun and heat
directly on your skin, besides being free of disgusting sweat stains and wet, clinging
Psychological grounds are very important too: showing a fit body is a status symbol, and
that explains why, currently, men are used to work out and sunbathe, becoming more
attractive and continually improving threir look. However, that's not necessary to be a
body builder and have a "surfer's look" to enjoy the pleasures of shirtlessness. I think
the main condition to do this is self-esteem and accepting yourself just as you are.
Moreover, slim bodies can look good, too.
I personally relate shirtlessness to freedom and masculinity, and strongly recommend
that every man tries to go out shirtless in hot days, since, of course,doesn't live in a
strict country like the Muslim ones, where that practice is unthinkable. Anyway, western
nations tend to accept this custom in many occasions and places.
Every barechester contributes to make shirtlessness more and more popular and
widespread, for the sight of shirtless men, in several places, is the best stimulus for
others who enjoy it follow suit... So, boys, what are you waiting for?
Unfortunately, many prejudiced people around the world dislike barechested men, but
I'm sure that shirtlessness will turn fully acceptable soon, and finally considered so
natural as wearing shorts, which no one disapproves.
Time will tell...
