My boyfriend and I prefer to let our body hair be natural. He shaves only his face and I only shave my underarms. I have much better ways to spend my time than grooming my private parts. Having scratchy stubble is not for me. My hygiene is just fine thanks to having running hot water.

But I am happy for you that your wife is so accommodating to your needs.

miu, it is not about my needs lol. that's just a happy side benefit for a man's perspective. spare me with the time commitment though, it takes her longer to shave her legs lol.

As I stated in an earlier post, I'm a fan of the brazilian. It takes 20 minutes of my time, every 4 weeks. Like Vanilla mentioned...it takes longer for me to shave my legs, which I have to do more often. (I tried waxing the legs, but it wasn't worth the time and/or pain.) And I don't wax for my husband's sake. I do it for myself. It's just my personal preference. I don't think it's any more hygenic, but I do feel much neater & cleaner.

But you cannot speak for all men, and there are men who still prefer a woman with a full bush. And my boyfriend assures me that he wants me unshaven and not looking like a prepubescent girl, nor does he want to feel stubble, he finds my naked body very attractive and his mouth is frequently in those nether regions. Imagine using your fingers to part the curtains... lol. The presence of pubic hair is really no big deal.

Obviously, if you and I were dating, this shaving thing would be a dealbreaker between the two of us. So... why not leave it that you have found your perfect girlfriend and I have found my perfect boyfriend, and leave it at that?

I really don't care which. But I will say- If you're doing for yourself, fine. But if you're doing it him, I think there is a deep seated fantasy of...
I think it got started in the porn industry just for "that" reason.

When you say "fully shaving", what are you referring to? Heads? Arms?

Or is this post in reference to Brazilian Waxings? Which I'm all for!
The link didn't work and I didn't want to join the site. So I'm not sure what was meant by 'complete body shaving'. I assume something more than legs, pits and pubes which have become the standards women are expected to do. The only other part I can think of is the arms for a woman. The only people, male or female, I can think of who shave their forearms are competitive bodybuilders as every possible trick to make the muscles show has to be done to win a contest.

I think waxing the nether regions is what a lot of people are doing right now-mostly females but I've even heard males get waxing down there, too (maybe more gay males?). The waxing really benefits both the woman and the man during intimacy. I'm sure in a few years, there will be another trend!

I'm with you and so is my husband

It really is not that bad to have done. It hurts THAT INSTANT and then all of a sudden the pain is gone and you don't remember two minutes later it was "painful". I also feel cleaner with it all gone. And yes, it takes longer to shave my legs than it does to have a Brazilian. It takes me longer to drive there than it does the actual procedure.

I was nervous about my first waxing experience. When the aestetician said, "have you been in labor-then this will be a piece of cake" it calmed my nerves. It's really not too bad-the lady who does my waxing distracts me with conversation so I don't notice the burn as much.

Epilate, epilate, epilate.

No stubble, at-home and cost effective, and less shaving, if ever.
That and it can be used anywhere as long as you keep the skin taut.

Personally I like it smooth. No thanks to spider legs or stubble.
