The beard-burn makes the whole unkempt-facial hair a complete turn off for me. Then again, a friend of mine is growing a beard so I just had to touch it (I may have had some alcohol) and my god it was soft! Men, find out the secret to soft facial hair and you'll be fighting the girls off
I have a big bushy beard at the moment.
Stubble is tough. Beards are soft. Hardly a big secret.
