Yes, but this thread is a direct offshoot from the one he started about shaving things! Does that make sense?

YES....had i not started the obviously intresting thread about women/unshaven underarms then this thread would of never existed.I didnt expect to see so many replys & views in such a short time.MANY yrs ago women didnt shave ..period.The razor blade was invented in the early 1920,s & before that women either stayed "natural" or went through some serious pain to remove undesirable body hair including plucking out hairs.The french are known for being lazy & thats why many french women dont shave/wax or pluck.Anyways....if a american womens underarms are shaven most people wouldnt think twice.If they are unshaven it would absolutely draw attention.Some women think a man isnt manly if he shaves his underarms or chest.I say...."to each his or her own".Its your body & do what you want with it.

If I had a hairy neck or was a Manbearpig, I could see the concern. I'm just not into shaving the pitts just yet. Then again, I'm not getting that area tongued on a regular basis either. Maybe I'm missing out!

With friends like you, who needs deodorant!

I gotta admit - you cracked me up with this one! And, no, a man doesn't have to spent 150 minutes in the bathroom before they leave the house every day if he learns how to do things RIGHT like we women have been doing for ages! We have it all down to a science... get with the program, buddy! While we may not spend much time by a guy's hiney, we don't want to be any more tortoured or traumatized by the experiences we do have when experiencing some wild jungle down there... okay, "I" don't want to... Smooth & Silky baby - all the way (I'll letcha keep the hiney hair though - just get rid of all the rest)! Peace out...

Default Why men are happier; this seems related to the thread

Men Are Just Happier People-- What do you expect from such simple creatures?

Your last name stays put. The garage is all yours. Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just another snack. You can be President. You can never be pregnant. You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. You can wear NO shirt to a water park. Car mechanics tell you the truth. The world is your urinal. You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too "icky". You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt. Same work, more pay. Wrinkles add character. Wedding dress $5000 - Tux rental $100. People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them. The occasional well-rendered belch is practically expected. New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet. One mood all the time.

Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. You know stuff about tanks. A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase. You can open all your own jars. You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend.

Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough. You almost never have strap problems in public. You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes. Everything on your face stays its original color. The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades. You only have to shave your face and neck.

You can play with toys all your life. Your belly usually hides your big hips. One wallet and one pair of shoes -- one color for all seasons. You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look. You can "do" your nails with a pocket knife. You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache.

You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on December 24 in 25 minutes.

No wonder men are happier.

I don't know how women (and some men) can deal with a lot of hair. The little bit of hair that I have is too hot in the summer and itchy whenever it wants. I am au natural, but I can understand why other fellas shave

Yes some do. I dated a guy once that did. I must confess it made me a little uncomfortable. I thought it was really strange, but each to his own.
