I'm considering having the bikini area lasered because I have no desire to be 85+ with a big bush.

It's not the cheapest way to go when it comes to how much you have to put out in cash upfront.... But it saves A LOT of time going forward. The savings in time outweighs the cost in cash. Everyone has a limited amount of time.... but there's [virtually] an unlimited amount of money.

Something must be wrong with me.
I'm 40 years old and I hate that bald look down there.
I'm more of a forest kinda guy.
Thank God my wife agrees.

That's all that matters. As long as you and your wife agrees that there's something wrong with you and you're on the same page.

This thread makes me feel weird. I've been shaving everything since I was 10.

That's kind of sad. There should be several years when you get to not worry about pubic maintenance at all, and 10 is too early in my opinion.

I read once that Kim Kardashian has been getting bikini waxes since she was 11. Whether you prefer the hairless look or not, I would hope everyone sees that's just inappropriate and a reflection of how quickly young girls are expected to conform to adult aesthetics.

I think people get concerned with the age issue by somehow relating it to sex. Not everything is about sex and sexuality. It's just grooming.

It's unnecessary grooming. There is no reason to ever cut your pubic hair except to appeal to other people.

It's fine to make your own choice as an adult, but there's just no reason that a kid should have to worry about how they look naked.

This is where you are wrong... As our society has already proven. There's 10 pages here where women chime in... you might want to read it.

where do you work? i want this job that provides me with a virtually unlimited amount of money.

seriously, what does anyone really do with their lives that the time it takes to shave a few body parts is considered a waste? do you live in an indiana jones movie or something?
