hairy pits

So, who doesn't shave their armpits or legs? Anybody? I don't.

Why do you do it? Do you think it's gross to have hair anywhere besides your head or are you worried what other people will think? I don't do it because 1) I'm lazy and 2) I'm making a social statement: "if guys don't have to why do I?"

I don't shave my legs cause you can hardly see the little blonde fuzz that grows.
I shave my pits cause they stink less when shaved.

I shave. I can't stand having hair in my armpits. Stubble on my legs drives me nuts, too. Smooth legs feel so much better than hairy ones, in my opinion.

It is kind of a double standard though, that women are supposed to shave and men aren't. But hey, doesn't bother me much.

I've never shaved in my life, mainly because I don't have much hair to shave in the first place. The only hair removal routine I take part of is the tweezing of some nicely manicured eyebrows. I guess I'm one of the fortunate ones.

Well I shave, but the bad part for me is that I have to shave everyday. I really should just wax but I CANNOT stand to have that prickly feeling on my legs. I love when my legs are nice and smooth. One thing I really like is when my husband and i are on the couch and I put my legs in his lap and he rubs my legs. I don't think he would want to rub them if they were hairy or prickly

Ditto. In fact, I'm getting ready to shower/shave shortly.

I just like how I'm all smooth. For myself, besides the hair on my head, the less, the better.

I guess I'm a conformist too, cuz I like to be clean shaven. Pits, legs, and nicely trimmed pussy (I do like to keep a landing strip there). I just feel cleaner after a shave. I guess I'm just used to it, too.

I shave. My mom told me that is the thing to do (legs) and my pits smell less when shaved. Bf likes a shaved and trimmed pussy and once I started with my eyebrows...

I like the feeling of being smooth and I get enthusiastic responses from my bf...

Wish i'd never bothered to start doing it but you cant go back once you have. I shave armpits and trim and tidy pussy...but not too much. Legs not that often but not really that hairy by there.

I shave my legs, underarms (when I'm not too lazy), and pubic region. I really like the feeling of being hairless, and also how my so responds.

I hate it that the entire process is expected, tho, I don't understand why anyone would get grossed out at the idea of not shaving, or seeing a girl unshaven. I personally like the feeling, but get annoyed when others (usually guys) criticize girls for not shaving.

Yay Anti Fishstick! Yours is my favorite answer.

You know, I had started out shaving. When I was an adolescent I couldn't wait to start shaving so I could be older, but then two years ago I was like "fuck it." That's also when I stopped wearing a bra. For a while I only allowed myself to wax, but then I just grew out of it completely and stopped all together. The only comment I've gotten about my pits so far was from a girl who said, "What are you trying to be all earth woman or something?" But Spinach_Indeed doesn't mind. Actually I think he kind of likes it.

For all you shavers out there who want to stop, my advice is to start only waxing. It's so painful (especially under the pits) that you'll stop fast!!

I shave everyday (legs, armpits, pussy). I've never had to bother with the eyebrows which I'm very grateful for. That just seems incredibly painful. Once, when I was in like fifth grade, I shaved my arms too. The hair never did really all grow back.

I really don't understand the preference for shaving. I'd much rather pluck or wax myself. Maybe I'm just a masochist.

I'm a shaver - completely. I'm sure it's cultural, but I can't stand having hair under my arms, or on my legs. The rest is hubby induced. I confess - I get lazy in the winter, and shave once a week, but we just joined a gym, and I wear shorts and tanks to work out in, so looks like I can't get lazy this winter. :-(

Earlier this summer I stopped shaving my pits, partly out of laziness and partly out of a desire to do something different with my body. After a while I began to like the way it looked, but I did tend to sweat and stink more (I already sweat quite a bit anyway).
When I moved to the UK I shaved my pits again... I don't like the upkeep and I don't like the way it looks, but it does make me smell a little better.
I do not shave my pubic region, mainly because of the horrendous red bumps that ensue if I try. I've never had a bikini wax, so I don't know if that would help with the red bumps. Anyone who knows: Is waxing the pubic region an improvement to shaving?
As for legs, every time I think I'm gonna quit shaving my legs the stubble eventually gets to me and I shave 'em again. I think it has to do with the fact that I'm constanting touching my legs, whereas I generally don't stick my hands in my armpits or crotch so if I get stubble there it doesn't annoy me so much.

The stubble stops bothering you after it grows so much that it ceases to be stubble.

I was teased in elementary school cause I didnt shave my legs till society basically told me it was a faux pas. Being a young tomboy (didnt live with a mom) i didnt realize I had to shave. I only rarely shave if I wear shorts/dresses-which I rarely do. Now I just like smooth legs-like baby butt soft. I shave my pits regularly cause its stanky if left unshaved and I work where I constantly lift my arms so it wouldnt be good to customers with a bush in their face. I did try shaving my pussy for the first time-my bf really did-and it itches like a bitch and grows back fast and sore. Im letting it grow back and leaving it like that. At least I tried it once.

Little limey did raise an excellent point..Why should we shave and men not? Sucks that we kinda follow society ideals. Fight the power!:P

it's easier/quicker/less painful to shave than pluck or wax... otherwise i'd pluck or wax.

I guess a few pinches are better than intense itching. Also, I should not be allowed near sharp objects. The last time I went near a razor, I ended up in bandages.

Ok, it was just one bandage, but still.

thank you :-D
we share some same viewpoints on this methinks.
i honestly don't think my harmpits are all scary hairy like you see some feminist-type ladies doing. i won't shave them for 2 weeks and they're still all scruffly stubble :P

Xirax judges my hairiness against his, and being as a i am pretty much a blond it works out pretty well for me. i like to shave, cause i like it soft, but i'm a very lazy person, so i tend to let it grow because, as little limey said, when you let your hair grow long enough, it's softer than stubble. i pluck my eyebrows because i love it, i'm totally obsessed at picking at things. and i've started plucking my pubes on and off. surprisingly doesn't hurt me. i don't know. my pits i keep up with shaving simply because i'm a smelly girl and shaving seems to be cheapest, and i'm also a poor girl. but as much as i like shaved legs, i shave my legs maybe like once every two months on average...?

I have not read the entire thread yet, but I'm going to go ahead and say that I do NOT shave my legs, my pits, my pussy......and here's the intense bit. Im 100% womon, I was born xx chromosone womon, I love being a womon, but I am hirstute (look it up) and I only shave part of that, enough that I look groomed, and not like a crazy homeless womon.

Arms as well? Wow....that I couldn't handle! Too much work...I guess I'm lazy!
I shave legs, pits, pussy but I think it's more out of habit than anything else. Going bare down below is a relatively new thing but I really like it (except for the upkeep....every freakin day.....ugh). I want to go get a brazilian wax for down below though so I don't have to shave there as often.
