Aside from chest hair and back hair, it seems the majority of women are against men shaving their legs, or shaving their pubes (inc underarm hair), stomach.etc unless they are swimmers or something. If shaving your face and chest is acceptable, why is shaving your legs any weirder? Can't women see that it's because of cultural norms that they find it so shocking?

Once upon a time men probably thought women with smooth legs was weird. But over time, this has changed.

If the trend towards hair removal by shaving, waxing, laser.etc continues, I think women will be more open minded towards men who want the have smooth legs etc.

honestly..my thing is that the stubble that grows in at the private area really hurts when you put friction between both your bodies. I don't want to get a rash cause some guy couldn't just trim it instead...which is better. men are supposed to have hair...jsut keep it neat!

Take your gal to the spa, too, when you have it done. What gal doesn't love a spa date with her guy?
Seriously, if that is your preference, go for it! Btw, not all women are against guys removing body hair.

Because the majority of women are heterosexual and prefer men that are men, not fems.

Dunno. I am old and therefore, a bit "old school." "Hairiness" in men just seems kinda masculine to me and therefore, I like it.

And I want someone to whom manliness doesn't depend on something as trivial as body hair. You probably wouldn't know real manliness from your pinky finger.
