I voted for smooth and sweet. I don't have a horror of a full beard but guys have to fish or cut bait - grow it out or shave it off; one or the other. It's repulsive to cuddle up with a face full of sandpaper. Mr. Snaps is not a beard-challenged guy and in the summer he has to shave twice a day. His inconvenience prevents me from getting "beard burn".
Even visually, a stubble look isn't sexy to me, it's just neglectful.
Ginger, something's wrong tonight. We're in total agreement again. I prefer the smooth, as my skin easily gets red from stubble.
