There is nothing more disgusting to me than body hair. I don't want to look at that, and I certainly don't want to touch it. The worse thing of all, though, is armpit hair on guys. Oh god that's just gross >.<

The bizarre thing about this entire thread is that there is an assumption that women are naturally hair-free. Obviously, this is not true. Women started shaving their pits, legs, etc. maybe 75 years ago. While overall women certainly have less hair than men, to say things like men are meant to have hairy pits, implying women aren't, is absurd. A discussion of back hair, which most people think is gross, would be limited to men, but not body hair overall. Perhaps it is simply a natural evolution of grooming that what began with women has now migrated to men. Men clearly have more freedom of choice here--most women feel obligated to shave their pits, legs, pubes; whereas men can do so or not, depending upon their preference and that of their s/o. At least we are mostly past the notion that men who shave their bodies are automatically deemed to be gay, but I am struck by the patently absurd idea that body hair is somehow a "man" thing, and that guys that shave their pits look "feminine." I think when left to nature, men and women are pretty equal in the pit hair department, so how are smooth pits "feminine"? It's just that for the past number of years, women have been shaving their pits. Perhaps they did so for good reason. After all, we don't see men wearing sleeveless shirts very often; maybe that is because no one wants to look at men's hairy pits.

I knew this guy who was adamant about not even trimming his armpit hair.. ugh! It was like a forest.. Soooooo gross.

In all seriousness, I like being (almost) hair free from the neck down. My skin is extremely smooth and tans better. I just think that certain outfits look better on women without body hair than with it. When it comes to guys, a little trimming goes a long way.

Men shaving is just weird to me. I prefer men who are a little hairy. I could even deal with very hairy. I don't mind.

I'd rather snuggle up to a hairy man than a stubbly man. Seems to me that one of the few benefits to being a man is that you get not to care about body hair.

Waxing doesn't leave stubble.

That has got to hurt, I can not imagine ever doing that to myself for any reason, I mean I can tolerate a lot of pain, I have a very high threshold for pain but I don't think I could tolerate anything like that, just throw me into a pot of boiling oil, that I can handle but not pouring hot wax on my body and then pulling it off with all that hair, I would think that is the highest form of torture there is, that hurts just thinking about it.

National surveys have shown that the only people not totally shaved anymore are over the age of 70.
