Re: Anyone disagree that body hair has sensory function?
This reminds of a time when a friend of mine who is mexican had a premature baby. When I went to see her at her home and saw the baby for the first time. My first reaction was this was a baby monkey because her baby had so much dark hair over the entire body that it resembled fur.

Of course, as the baby grew it lost its appearance of being furry and looks human now. This provided strong evidence to me of our ancestrial background of once being apes.
