Well, most people of all genders don't have hairless chests -- for the most part all people are covered with at least a very fine layer of hair, all over their epidermis. We're mammals!

But how hairy men or women are tends to be very individual, based on genetics (sometimes race plays a part, as well, as might other chromosomal structures than the most common XX or XY) and on hormones, as well as on development -- many teen men still have very fine body hair if puberty isn't over for them. So, there are plenty of men out there with only lightly more chest hair than a lot of women, and some with merely downy fuzz.

There are also some medical and hormonal conditions which can cause a lack of thick body hair (or vice-versa).

yes, guys can definetely be naturally hairless on there chest. You'll find that most Asians are naturally hairless in that area. It all just deals with gene's-- I mean I'm not going to get technical about little hairs that cover most peoples bodies, but in general, probably half of men don't have hairy chests from what I have experienced.

My boyfriend is 20 and I met him when he was 15 and still to this day he doesn't have a hairy chest. Up close I can see fine hair that covers his chest but not the black curly hair that I find rather yucky. He's half japanese and half peruvian, so yes, he is asian.
