Aack! Disgusting Julia!

I admit in winter I shave my legs much less often. But if I'm going anywhere where my legs might be seen I make sure to shave. And I shave my pits every other day. I also shave my forearms too. Body hair looks disgusting, including leg and pit hair on men. Anytime you see someone with a forest in their armpit you know they also smell like a horse.

I don't mind arm hair on a female, just mind the pits and the legs..

I like to shave my hot pocket and everything everyday and find I am more attracted to men and woman that do the same. I am not going to judge a person, however, on what they wish to do, but, I am not going to have sex with you if you don't.

To each his own.

That article was dead on about the “That’s something white people do.” (read: and black people don't).
Could just as easily have said, "That's something Americans do." (and the French don't).
Those statements are clearly cultural stereotypes but the point is, not everyone is at Walmart purchasing the latest MachXV or Venus 8.0 version3c.

News flash: different cultures have different grooming habits and standards of beauty. I find it immature to declare, "ewwwww grooosss" like we're a buncha 5 year-olds who just caught our parents kissing.

For me, it's all about reciprocity. I request my guy be groomed a certain way, so I'm mindful of his preferences in kind.

No I wasn't suggesting all women shave their forearms. For some women its not a problem; I just happen to have abundant, course black arm hairs. Apparently its hereditary judging by my family. I think its embarrassing, so I shave it. Plus where I live in the West now it seems like everybody is shaving every thing, including guys shaving their legs, pits, arms, chest, etc.

I agree with Gentlearts. We wouldn't notice it nearly as much if ALL women everywhere went unshaven. But I don't like body hair. And armpit hair really does increase odor.

I've known some "naturalist" women don't wear deodrant, and they stank to High Hell. Weird.

...armpit hair really does increase odor...

No. Sweat, bacteria and poor hygiene can cause or increase odor. Shave or not, some people have a problem with odor and have to take additional measures to keep that in check.

Sweat, bacteria and poor hygiene clings to hair, I assume in part to the warmth generated by hair. A bald head doesn't "stink" nearly as bad as one with hair because there is nothing for sweat and oils and bacteria to adhere to.

Unkempt, to answer the question. Not clean at all. And please don't use the phrase, "Oh, but it's natural....", as an excuse.
