HairNow,GoneTomorrow: When your penis gets as big as your father's. OK, just kidding.Body hair can continue to grow for years as you get older (unfortunately it will also thin in other areas and grow in other areas you'd prefer it not). It even grows for a while after death. So the answer is: it's hard to say. You'll find out as it happens. The books say a peak after puberty but I don't believe it.Everyone is different
