beards

Sometime when you're sitting in a meeting, look around and try to spot guys playing with their facial hair. Rubbing their fingers through it, twisting it, just petting their faces.

I'm not knocking it! It looks fun actually, I'd totally do it too. We all need something to fidget with. I'm kinda jealous.

Most guys say that if they were women, they'd be playing with their own boobs a lot. Boobs are soft and squishy and most everyone I talk to likes them. They are fun to feel. But it is not socially acceptable to play with your boobs in a staff meeting.

When we're pregnant we get to rub our bellies and that's fun, at least for a few months. It's big and round and firm and sometimes it moves. It's just cool to feel and its ours, all ours. But then the baby's born and we go back to being normal people with nothing really interesting going on.

Yeah, there's something about a man stroking his beard. For clean-shaven men, it's stroking the cheek in a thoughtful manner; some can get away with it, some cannot. Stroking hair that isn't actually, you know, there, requires great gravitas and I admire the men who've mastered it.

If I'd been born female-bodied I would probably play with my hair. I used to wear my hair long (for about 20 years, from after I got out of the Marine Corps until spring of last year), but even for guys with long hair I think it's considered unmanly.

I always wonder what men with peyos (sidelocks) do. None of the rabbis I know wear them, but I think it must be a lot of fun, especially if you're given to nervous habits.

Women twirl their hair a lot in meetings sometimes, but doesn't look quite like we are being reflective...

Rather than twisting my hair I play with my ear rings or my facial piercings.

I play with my boobs from time to time. They're sooo soft. And they move like jelly if you poke them. XD

I play with my long hair sometimes, especially if it's in a ponytail or side-braid. :)

Nowadays, it seems everyone prefers playing with their phones anyways.

I play with my boobs, too, sometimes. Usually just holding them (as if my hands were a bra) and I *mostly* do that when I'm alone. Funnily, I don't care very much for other people touching them (I don't dislike it, it just doesn't do much for me).

so true. Men are allowed to touch their bodies because it's not sexualized -- even their crotches. :-/

I pet my belly anyway, 'cause it feels nice, but not at work. Can't afford more reasons for people to think I'm weird.
