The Straight Dope: Why do humans have so little body hair?

Here is a link which offers an insight into possibly why we humans are not hirsuite. Some two decades ago I read a book named, ‘ The Naked Ape ‘ by Desmond Morris dealing with this interesting topic. I find that there is a reference to this book in the explanation provided at the following link. Incidentally the site provides answers to virtually any query regarding any subject on earth and may be beyond that too.
Come to think of it, hirsuiteness in humans is not that completely rare. I recollect it mentioned in my childhood, that one of my grand-uncles was so luxuriously endowed with hair on his face and torso that people, especially young ladies, used to refer to him fondly and playfully as, Botchu Pitta,– ‘ The Fleecy Bird.’
