Baldness is the state of having no hair on one's head. This can be due to either hair loss or shaving one's head.

Bald heads and sexualityEdit

Men with bald heads are more likely to be viewed as commanding, dominant and masculine. In BDSM, some male tops shave their head as a sign of masculine strength. This can be seen in BDSM art, including spanking art. Bald heads are also found in gay art and in the skinhead subculture.

On the other hand, a shaved head can also come with connotations of submission (as in monks) or punishment (as in prisoners). Head shaving can sometimes be enforced under the pretext of hygiene.
