If I were thinking of it that way, I would definitely have issues...

Yes, landscaping and cunnilingus is serious business!

I have to wonder what's going on in some people's bedrooms that gets them all stirred up over hair vs no hair. For me it's more about practicality and aesthetics, but I'm also not diddling around down there with a miner's light strapped to my head taking notes and placing full sized ads of her situation on roadside billboards. Whatever is going on down under is between her and I, not the general pubic...uh, public. Grooming should be done for oneself and their partner if that's something they've reached a compromise on. Not because of some perceived social expectation.

See a woman in her underwear with all kinds of wild hair poking out is extremely unattractive. Some female comedianne said something to the effect of "If a woman looks like she's holding a tarantuala hostage in her underwear, its time for her to trim". I LOLd on that one because I know just what she's talking about.

Again, I love it when the wife goes completely bare and so does she. She says its really makes her feel sexy. At the most, she'll be extremely closely well trimmed.

I don't know what her intention was, but she clearly came out on my side. You said in your original post that there are no reasons for girls to shave. I said in mine that it's been proven in society that there is.

JustJulia followed up by saying that the reasons are external factors. I would argue that they are external causes, but either way, there are reasons.

The stance quoted above is different than your original post. Which is it? There is no reason, or there are external reasons? It seems like you're changing your mind now.

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.

So we all agree (atleast the 3 of us) that there are reasons. Although, I still feel there could be personal reasons caused by external factors -- which is different than external reasons.

It would be interesting to hear from parents of girls in this age group and what their expectations and/or experiences are. And then also what parenting classes/groups/associations etc teach parents about these topics.

I just think it's sad that anyone should feel pressure to mess with that area, but it's so much worse when you're at an age when you should be barely aware you even have a vagina, let alone be aware of how others perceive it.

What did people's parents tell them about personal grooming? I was never told a thing, but being the 4th of 5 kids, I think my parents just forgot that I didn't automatically know what my older siblings knew. I just picked things up from friends and the media starting at around 15.

My daughter is 14 and autistic. Physically she's a young woman but mentally and emotionally, she's a little kid. She has no awareness at all about any of that stuff--socially, in that respect, she is very young. She has hairy legs (blonde, thank goodness), and during the summer she wears a two-piece bathing suit with a little skirt. I have to bathe her, and I shave her pits when it's warm. I also trim her eyebrows. My daughter doesn't notice when other people make fun of her, but I try to give them as little as possible to make fun of. She has enough challenges without sporting a unibrow and shaggy pits.

Thanks for your response. You're a great mom. Makes me miss mine.
