I guess the pit check was to make sure a bloke didn't have a rash or something else funky going on in there. Ever since early puberty, I have had very hairy armpits, so if I had any rash, no one was likely to see it.
Like many blokes, I find the sight of a man's hairy pit to be very erotic. I particularly like when a lad is shirtless or wearing a sleeveless shirt and you can see his hair peeking out even when his arms are down.
The lads appearing below are part of a collection of forty larger photos featuring hunks and their pits on display, ready for inspection. If you'd like to download the complete set in a free zipped folder, be sure to click here.
