It's a preference on both sides, goes back to ancient time and has nothing to do with porn or pedophilia. The same way that some women prefer a shaved face on guys, some men prefer shaved body parts on men. Laser treatments have made it easier for women to keep their desired look.

Can't see what the big deal is about body hair. It's just as natural on women as it is on men. I'm 20 and I've never shaved my arms or legs. I didn't shave my armpits until I was 17. Two questions:
1. Is it absolutely necessary to shave the armpits and pubes for good hygiene?
2. Just to be a smart-alleck, why do we shave the hair on most of our bodies, but not our heads?

I'm male. I prefer my women hair-free from the neck down, though I'm cool with a landing strip. This is for several reasons. 1- Underarm hair or leg hair on a woman, to ME (not everyone will agree) is not at all visually appealing. Then again, to ME, brussels sprouts are so disgusting, that if they were the only food source available to me, I might choose to starve to death instead of eating them, so YMMV. 2- Pubic hair, in full bloom, is not only unattractive, I hate getting it in my mouth when going to town, which I LOVE to do.

I have experienced everything from full bare to full bloom. Those experiences tell me full bare is more enjoyable.

Re: hygiene, about a year ago, I decided, despite the fact that I'm a heterosexual male, to start shaving my own armpits. Before that, I used to sweat from them like someone turned on a faucet. Since I started shaving, not a drop, unless I'm on a shower free day, which are few and far between.

How often do you lick your partners head? As kinky as I am, while it wouldn't surprise me if I've done it a time or two, I cannot remember ever having done so, and it's certainly not something that happens on a regular basis.
