Did the bald thing....too itchy when it grows back. Trimming is better.

Um, no.

The micro shavers are good for trimming stray brow hairs, and the "baby fuzz" on the hair line; not to mention shaving the bikini area.

The first person that comes to mind, is the actress Monique. I'm like come on. You spend all that time and money, on your hair and makeup, yet, you don't want to take a few minutes to shave the hair off your legs? I don't know about anyone else, but the more I shave, the sparser the hair that grows back. Most people say it's the opposite. Not for me. Monique needs to go ahead and take care of that. Yuck.

Shaving all over is cool. I do it and I like my ladies to do it. Guys should not be embarrased about taking it all off. Some women love it. I do not care what other women think. I just feel and look a heck of a lot better.

I think each of us should make our own decisions about to go hairless or with hair. To follow the latest trend because everyone else is doing it makes sheeple out of us. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, yes?

The idea of waxing our private bits to follow fashion is cruel and unusual punishment, IMHO. Ouch! But I guess some folks find women looking like nine years olds without hair there is attractive and the new trendy height of fashion...why?

What does it say about how we view women (and men?) And what does it say about us as a people?

Men don't why should women, unless they want to.

I guarantee that almost no guy who sees a naked woman who's completely shaven is thinking to himself: "Gee, she looks like a 9-year-old." In case you hadn't noticed, a lot of classical female nudes (ex: Botticelli's painting of the birth of Venus) feature no pubic hair, and last time I checked, I never heard anyone claim that the women depicted in those paintings "look like 9-year-olds."

I'm going to chime in here and say that I'm also grossed-out by really hairy women. I have a female friend who doesn't shave at all, and her arm pits are hairier than mine (and I'm a guy!), and her legs aren't that far off from looking like typical guy's legs.

LOL @ these responses

I never used to shave till I got to my twenties and moved to the US...I was asked why i didnt shave one too many times.. I still dont shave my legs..maybe once a year..and thats coz their is hardly any hair on them and it doesnt grow back that easy.

I A with everyone who has brought up the fact that its a very US thing

Um, yes, but that's art..artistic license if you will.

Real life women, after puberty, have the secondary sexual aspects of hair...only pre-adolescents have no hair in their nether regions...it's not natural for an adult woman to be hairless. If it's in fashion today, it's merely a trend that women (and men) can choose to follow--or not.

Don't forget, Rubens' paintings of very well-upholstered women are not a representation that women today are likely to follow--Ruben's women, today, would be considered grossly obese...
