In brief: Hair growth

Studies have shown a proportional relationship of testosterone levels to the amount of body hair.
The hair growth response to testosterone differs in different parts of the body. Hence, in some men, for example, testosterone promotes hair growth in the abdomen and back while hair growth is suppressed in the scalp, leading to male pattern baldness.

In brief: No

Sex hair is confined to certain parts of the body in men and women (face, axilla, pubic area, etc.
) generalized hirsutism is genetic. There is also the condition of hypertrichosis which can be due to a variety of causes independent of whether you are a man or woman.
