Go Bald or Give Up Porn? Surprising Things Men Would (& Wouldn't) Do to Keep Their Hair

Survey finds that guys would trade some surprising indulgences to hang onto their hair

As the famously shiny headed Telly Savalas once said, we’re all born bald, baby.

But once men get that hair to grow in, well, they’d do pretty much anything to keep it.

Even give up beer. And porn.

Now, that’s dedication.

The Daily Mail in London reports on a new survey from NPD Group, which finds that 69 percent of guys fret over going bald as they age, adding that most of ‘em would pass on the suds and the X-rated stuff to keep their locks luscious.

But, of course, there is a line. A mere 8 percent of respondents said they’d forego sex to keep from losing their hair, according to the newspaper.

Other survey finds: Most men think “getting lucky/romantic” is linked to nicely styled hair; worry over baldness is equal to worry over impotence as men age; and nearly two-thirds say they spend 10 minutes grooming their tresses.

So, what male star do they hope to emulate, hair-wise? Channing Tatum.

Sorry, fellas, but good hair isn’t the only thing working in the Magic Mike star’s favor when it comes to him getting lucky. Although, now that we think about it, it certainly doesn’t hurt.
