Thoughts on Body Hair

22 Jul

For quite a while I was very against body hair. I’ll blame it on my youth – when you’re 14, body hair doesn’t seem normal.

I’m still very much against hair on my own body. I made a comment recently that if I could get rid of all of the hair on my body, I totally would. Keep in mind this excludes hair on my head and my eyebrows/eyelashes.

Someone replied saying that you don’t get to choose, and so I would actually not have any hair, and not having any hair is horrible.

Well, last time I checked, wishes don’t really come true, tricky genies don’t exist, and I can choose which areas of my body I can get laser hair removal on.

So, yes. I would remove all of my body hair. Permanently.

On other people, however, I’ve found that I don’t really have an opinion on their body hair (back hair is what I feel most strongly about, but definitely not as strongly as I used to). As long as men are well-groomed, it’s fine (there is a limit, but I really only know it when I see it). Women – not my business.

And as a side note, while I’ve never seen it, apparently shoulder hair exists.

How do you feel about body hair? On yourself? Your significant other? When is it too much? Too little? What are some dos and don’ts of grooming and body hair?

War on Pubic Hair? Food for Thought

3 Sep

 

After reading a few blogs about “war” on pubic hair, and so on last week, a few things came to mind that I’d like to present to you.

The majority of those people who don’t shave/wax their pubic hair feel that a woman who does looks prepubescent, so when they have sex its like having sex with a child. All of shaving has the same effect. Women also shave their underarms and legs, which takes us back to a prepubescent state. Leg hair only mildly exists before puberty, and underarm hair doesn’t. So why pick and choose? I think that if shaved pubes gives you that “prepubescent” feeling, so should shaved underarms and legs. All or nothing, in my opinion.

Will you stop shaving your underarms and legs, now that it is also associated with looking like a prepubescent girl? Is it going to be that much more difficult to have sex because a woman doesn’t have pubic hair, underarm hair, or leg hair?
