body hair

3 years, 2 months ago

So I was wondering what everyone on there thinks about body hair, or hair in general.

As mammals, we have hair on all of our body, some parts thicker than others. Certain societies shave it in certain ways depending on their cultures, etc. Some people feel so uncomfortable with it that they go through painful waxing or laser treatments, including for body parts that may seem insignificant like your arms or something.
Mainly, I think of body hair in our sexual body parts. A lot of media or pornos might depict women who wax, shave, and are completely bare down there. I wonder, do men like it like this? Are there any guys out there that actually like a women who goes all natural?
Do any women expect men to maintain themselves as well?

This might seem like a weird topic, but it’s something I often find myself curious about…I hear some girls who stop shaving down there, in efforts to make sure that they don’t end up sleeping with someone (i.e. they meet someone at the bar but would be too embarassed to show their unshaved cootch to them and so it saves them the trouble of sleeping around). Just wondering how guys or people in general actually feel about this!

I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that a lot of body hair growth has to do with androgen levels, and women with high androgen levels are generally unattractive mentally as well as physically, so from earlier exposure we make an association that hairy=unattractive. That’s just my theory though. And then there’s the visual part, it simply does look better generally, and men are by nature turned on visually.

@Sheila That amazonian race actually had little to no body hair, just like many other native American races that are now almost extinct.

I have hair, literally everywhere, but I do keep my pubes short, but I don’t shave them…They are there for a reason..and I’m of the hippy persuasion regarding women, as long as they don’t have hair on their face, chest, or back, and I think they are beautiful otherwise, I don’t care. I don’t mind the pit hair, I actually generally prefer women who don’t care, and the leg hair only bothers me with women who have really dark hair and are generally “dumpy.”

Lots of women find my torso hair to be very attractive, and I have no intentions of changing that for anyone. I’m proud of my individuality. As for the debate of body hair in general, pubes are there for a reason, I don’t like it out of control when I’m pleasing a woman, but I like the presence of what nature intended.

i don’t like chest/back hair on dudes. i like the feeling of skin. leg hair isn’t bad. foot hair is weird only if it looks like he has hobbit feet. beards can look good on some men and i definitely can dig it if it’s maintained and looks good.

i don’t have any facial hair because i maintain it. i always shave my legs and under arms and keep my bikini line neat. i’ll shave my downstairs if my partner prefers it, but otherwise i just keep it presentable. i dunno how other women feel on here, but i think if it gets too bushy, it’s just uncomfy.

I’m personally fascinated with body hair, not in a fetishistic way, but I find it adds a certain “quirkiness” to whoever it is on, as far as pubic hair goes, I’d prefer someone be natural with me as I do…let those pheromes pool! and I have no qualms with women who don’t shave, it’s actually kind of noble, in a way. actually, I find the absence of pubic hair on anyone to be a little creepy, because I either think of a barbie/ken or just feel…wrong

@em so funny you said that, bc i have let my legs go as well!! hahah i became single and it’s so cold out that i was like, fuck it! haha.

This post is interesting and it seems like some guys prefer it and some don’t. I wish I could read guys before I slept with them to know what they like bc I’d love to be with a guy who likes it a little more natural, but I understand why guys would want it shaved/waxed or whatever. So i just keep mine neat and hopefully that’s a good medium! haha

Woman need pubes because it evaporates the “shmegma” or lady juices. Without it, it kinda smells horrible. Also, did you know that lady juices is just a mix of bacteria and dead skin cells! happy fucking. :)

I keep my pubes and legs well groomed and have my armpits, chest and back fully shaven as it looks much fresher. And I prefer a woman looking fresh as well.

I am turned off by men (and women) who spend an inordinate amount of time grooming ANY part of their body. To me, it reflects insecurity +/or undue pride in oneself…vanity. There are so many other things to enjoy, spend time doing, and focus on in life, other than one’s appearance. However, I expect my man to be clean. Shower daily and you’re fine.

I’m not much into a lot of body hair, I like some, but not excessive. I briefly dated a guy with a lot of body hair, it was like he was wearing a sweater, and it totally turned me off. I do however like hair on a guys chest because I like to play with it when snuggling :) The only thing I really don’t like is a furry backside, hair’s cool, but not fur.

As for private parts, I prefer that a man keep it groomed, not necessarily shaved, but keep it down to one cm max. It does tend to smell funny if the guy is an active person (even if they did just scrub in the shower) and I will NOT go down there in that case! As for myself, I keep it trimmed with a simple hair cutter, I don’t like to shave it completely because it’s so uncomfortable when it grows back! And I only shave my legs once a week, it’s not very coarse and wouldn’t actually be so bad if I just left it alone anyway :)

I know a girl who never shaves her legs, she’s blonde and I have to say it’s actually rather attractive. And since she never shaves, it’s quite soft too.

I’ve shaved before, but I don’t like the constant scratching of the crotch area. I do enjoy the reaction of others, but the itching I can do without. Balls are tough, figuratively, you have to stretch them before you shave to get the wrinkles out. It does make for a good christmas card though. On a more serious note, my wife and I are comfortable with either/or. Sometimes it’s fun to play”Attack of the Naked Mole Rat”.
