Is increased body hair growth in men a sign or symptom of virility?

Maybe but it depends. In answering your question, we have to agree (like former president clinton) to a definition of virility since that's more an adjective and less a medical term. Let's assume virility = masculinity, which one could say is distantly related to testosterone. Testosterone is converted into dihydrotestosterone (dht) which increases body hair (but decreases scalp hair). But don't forget genetics!
