None of it is a deal breaker. It depends on the mans face, as Alex pointed out. On average, I think a five o’clock shadow is sexy; you get the added definition without the upkeep of a full beard. We see a lot of the ‘bearded mountain man’ look up here in Alaska so I may be a little starry eyed for the clean shaven feel, too. I find a full beard to be very ticklish!
