Poldark star Aidan Turner's chest mane is set to spark a revival — but which handsome man wears it best?

Because, for a hot-blooded woman like me, there’s nothing sexier than a furry fella.

To all you blokes constantly waxing, shaving or plucking, body hair is a thing of beauty – the more and thicker, the better.

Like many women of my generation, I grew up watching such films as Indiana Jones and Three Men And A Baby – with Hairy-son Ford manfully diving through caves and an abandoned new-born baby lying on the forest of Tom Selleck’s chest that was so thick it practically sprouted through the screen.

These were REAL men to me – and I am not alone. A recent study found women are biologically wired to find hairy men attractive, because it means they have high testosterone levels . . . indicating a higher sex drive. Perfect.

And there are plenty of other reasons why body fluff hirsutes you, sir. Hairy men are very likely to be highly intelligent, for one.

A study of male Mensa members – who have an IQ of at least 140 – found they have a tendency to have thick body hair.

And they smell super-sexy. Hairiness helps to increase the natural body scent given off by a man.

According to scientific research, a woman will literally sniff out a man’s genetic make-up before she decides if he is right for her.

So on these pages we present a veritable treasure chest of mane men to demonstrate how a bit of frizz really is the biz – and the smoothies to avoid.

So please step away from that razor, lads.

Because whether you have a thick thatch or just a smattering of fluff, remember that eight out of ten women (probably) prefer whiskers – and you can’t say furrier than that.

Journalist Mariella Frostrup sparked the discussion this week by claiming women who did were guilty of double standards – and now Channel 4 news presenter Cathy Newman has joined in.

After photos of a shirtless Aidan, 34, appeared in several papers to promote the new series of Poldark, starting June 10, she tweeted: “If we women object to being ogled, how is this any different?”

Feminist journalist Caroline Criado Perez replied: “It’s not a double standard because no one is saying men can’t find women attractive.”

Newman tweeted back: “But is Aidan Turner being allowed to be more than his bare-chested romping?”

Next Piers Morgan waded in with a sarcastic post: “I’m absolutely outraged by this sexual object-ification of Poldark’ – said no man ever.”
