What's the longest you've gone without removing hair from pits and legs? Why do you think it's considered unsightly in women but not in men?

At this time she was trying to decide whether to do it or not?

About 10 years on the legs, closer to 14 for the pits

As an adult? I don't know, maybe a month? I have a friend who no longer shaves her legs. Her boyfriend doesn't care and the hair is soft and blonde, but she definitely looks fuzzy. And I know a blogger who planned to stop shaving her pits, but caved in after a few months because of social pressure.

It would certainly be nice if all those silly hair standards went away, but none of it bothers me enough to become a crusader for hairiness.

In the winter I might go a week or so without attending to matters. It's cold, I'm covered up, and none of the guys I've dated have ever really cared.

This is something I'm curious about. When you were going through puberty, and you first noticed hair growing in places, did you ever let it grow full? Like did you ever let your arm hair totally grow out before shaving it or did you just shave it off before it grew?

Anyone here ever just let all their hair grow out naturally?

If anyone's interested, there's a site on Tumblr where women (mostly very young, college or even high school age) post pictures of their unshaved armpits and legs. It all looks very un-spectacular, and you could come away asking why our society has this fetish about hairless women. By the way, the site's not pornographic at all, in spite of the name.

I'm seeing that this wonderful website has censored the URL for the Tumblr site. You'll have to edit it to remove the asterisks and put in a well-known four letter word. Sorry if that brings a blush to your maidenly/manly cheek.
