No, please....Mention!!! Hahaha!!!

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.
Looking back I wish I hadn't even been aware of such things. I and many other girls I know grew up too fast.

When I first started shaving my netherregions, I had the intense itching, and red bump/ingrown issue. It was so bad that I almost stopped, but then one day, after about a month, those issues went away completely. Overnight, it was like someone flipped a switch, and I've never had a problem since. I shave daily, in the shower.

As a nudist and swinger, I probably see way more naked people than a more "normal" member of society, and of those I see, the overwhelming majority, 90%+, are hairfree or tightly groomed, like a landing strip. That's women and men, young, old, and everything in between.

How that relates to the general public outside of those communities I know not.

I have so many questions! But this probably isn't the proper thread.

Wink Female body hair

Body hair on a woman should be left alone. Which man ants to date a woman who looks like a plucked chicken. Ladies wear your body hair with pride and freely display your armpit hair.

Why are women obsessed with any body hair.

If it is good enough for Julia Roberts why are other women disgusted with the sight of female body hair

Default clean and hairy

Body hair is no problem if a woman attends to personal hygene.

so ladies, for the sake of hygene and for the sake of your husbands, think about it a little more. my wife is completely clean down there and let me tell you, it is better for the both of us!
Here's the problem. What started out as a choice is now seen by some as yet another requirement for a woman to be considered attractive. As usual women bear the burden of the expectation that yet another part of their body must be totally hairless.

I largely blame porn for this. The easy accessibility of porn means that almost everyone has access to it. Boyfriends or husbands start demanding their women look like these hairless women in porn films. This wasn't a problem 20 years ago. Leg hair wasn't a problem 150 years ago, nor was underarm hair. Changing cultural norms.

Hair under the neck, aside from a landing strip, is a no go. Learn how to use a razor, it's not that hard. Ewwww.
