I would maintain a beard / facial hair if it suits.

I'm not sure if people genuinely prefer it that way or if it's just a social stigma of appearing unkempt in the bedroom.

I know that of the one German female I have been with, there was definitely no shyness about hair which is perfectly fine by me. I have been wondering for a long time if pubic hair is more acceptable in European societies, but this personal anecdote and the 'less sexually repressed' stereotype is all I really have to go by. What makes it more of a curiosity for me is that I have heard that German males are sometimes really in to shaving their chests and armpits.

I don't know how any of this is affected by older men and woman, who I'd imagine often stop caring what other people think and just do whatever they want with it at some point.

What do you think?

I don't make it a point to bring up pubic hair in general conversation with friends, family or someone I have just met so I really have no idea how one maintains their own private parts and pieces and honestly don't want to know.

I can see the benefit of shaving armpits though and wish men would do that too.
I'd love to shave my armpits, I find it disgusting but as you just said i'm not shaving it because of how people would react.

If you'd love to shave your pits then do it. Don't restrain yourself and not do what you want just because of how other people MIGHT react over such a minor thing. Why let your own desires be squashed and controlled because of other people's hangups? It's your body, not theirs so just man up and take control of your own body and do what you want for yourself. Liberate yourself!

Gotta manscape. Certain areas should have all hair removed and some should maintain just the right amount.

I seriously doubt that it was men complaining about their women's hair. It was the shaving industry tricking women into an allegedly more natural (!) and hygienic look, which was reinforced by Hollywood and other media. Pure brainwashing.

I'm not very hairy so I've never had to worry about these kind of obsessions. I do think I'm fortunate especially being female but I always though women liked hairy men. Anyway shaving would make hair growth worse.
