Stay clean: Little more than head hair. Body hair by itself has no odor as you can easily verify. A hirsute man who seldom washes is at some extra risk for skin infections -- karl marx suffered for this reason. Tastes vary. If you are hairy and don't like it, you can have it removed by electrolysis. If you want to date a smooth rather than a hairy man, there's no shortage. Best wishes.
