So, I’m growing my hair out, and I thought I’d shoot for a bob—-jaw length with a fringe. Foolishly, I turned to the Internet for inspiration, and instantly stumbled upon “The Bob Haircut Pages.” This portfolio of short, banged haircuts begins innocently enough. And then devolves into some dude’s hair porn collection.

“Through another picture series I want to take a view on the more sexy side of the pageboy,” wrote Hair Porn Dude, as the tone switched from style advice to sexy time. “As this WWW pages do and will not contain any nudity, the pictures do not show it, but you can imagine where they came from.

He then goes on to say that if you cut your hair into a bob, you will likely be associated with prostitution (it’s a good thing): “There are so many erotic aspects of this haircut—-a lot of men love it and some women already know that. The professionals seem to know even better than the usual ones—-they know how to attract and they dare to look that way, where so many others are still too afraid to try. (don’t you also associate a prostitute with a pageboy cut, and don`t many films show one with that haircut?)”

What’s creepier: the smiley emoticon, or the sorting of women into”prostitutes” and “usual ones”? But on to the sexy photos:

“Isn’t she lovely?” hair porn dude opines. “She’s called Joanne Guest, and she’s a famous model—-I know why.”

Pssst: Here’s why:

Hair Porn Dude, it seems, ain’t the only one crushing on the erotic bob. The men who lurk on the “Bob Haircut Message Board” are just waiting for a bobbed girl to  join them in their private MSN chat-rooms (send them your pics!).

Back in 2006, bob wearer Claire fell into their midst. Claire wanted to talk about bobs:

I’m a girl from Holland and I am a really bob lover. I like to talk with other girls/boys about this haircut. If you also like this, we can shear our intrest!

And Tom wanted to talk about bobs, privately:

Hi Claire, i’m Tom from France. Have u got msn ? we can speak together about bob haircuts … & share our pics …

Claire edged the conversation back toward salon-friendly:

Hi Tom. Sorry I don’t have msn. How nice that a man like the bob haircut. 10 Years ago, I was a girls with long hair. Than I moved and decide that is was time for a makeover. That was the beginning of my love for the bob. Now 10 years later I still have a bob, and i still love it! I try to convince other girls to cut a bob and 2 colleaques did it, they look fantastic. So the wirld looks much better!

But by that point, the fetish could not be tamed. Tom replied:

Lol very good …!!! and have you got any pics of your own bob ?  for me i love it since a few years & i don’t know why but i find this cut very sexy. it makes the women so beautiful and so “fatal”…  My e-mail is Halflight@hotmail.fr if u want to have this discussion just between us!

conway29 offered up his resources:

Hi clare, i like the bob cut too. I have a vast amount of bob cut pics on my hard drive, would love to share pics with u if u want.

Dave S. got explicit:

Hi Claire! I don’t think it is difficult to find men who like bobs…. for me its a very special thing and definitely the most erotic haircut… my girlfriend often says, that for me it seems to be some kind of fetish 🙂 Feel free to contact me, i would like to chat with a girl that loves bobs! my addy: mercer41

Mark joined in:

Newton piled on:

Hello bob lovers. I am male and therefore do not have this haircut but if I was a girl I would because I totally love it. The Pageboy is my favourite. I would like to make friends with other bob lovers (male or female). My address is neilcox85@yahoo.com.

And onL

Hi Claire.  Would you you not like to make friends with me Newton?  I am a true bob lover. I hope to hear soon.

When Claire returned, she didn’t have a bob anymore:

Hi everybody. I am happy that so many man like the bob. In the meantime my hair is something longer now, but I like to change, jaw line, shoulder, shaven nape, it doesn’t matter!

Newton was undeterred:

yahoo.com as my real name is Neil Cox. I hope to hear soon.

And finally, a guy showed up who Claire might actually be interested in speaking with:

But by then, she was already gone.
