What would you like today, short back and sides?

Over the weekend while being served at a store checkout with a good friend of mine i was subjected to some rather noisy and shocked exclamations because, shock the horrors, i don't shave off my pubic hair.

I wouldn't have given it a second thought except for the way she inferred that i was somehow lacking as a woman. This from a woman buying herself some gentleman's clippers for the said deed. It was during this conversation that she enlightened me about her shaving habits along with details of her hairy ass. Yeuchk, there are just some things you don't share with your girlfriends, at least not while they're sober and fragile to such traumatic details. Remember we're standing in line at checkout! I mean.....hairy ass...purleeeze!

Is it not enough nowadays to have a clean bikini line, to be neat and tidy, must we go one step further and remove the lot?

I went through a phase of shaving the lot and i felt downright bizarre, if not a touch regressive, shaven muff is for porn stars and the pre-pubescent.

My reasons were of the male variety, they seemed as good as any (well i was young, impressionable aka dumb), whereas my good friend (hats off to the girl) just likes it that way, i think i'll keep it neat not naked.

What tickles your fancy?

I prefer keeping it neatly trimmed... shaving it completely is a little... uncomfortable... Plus I agree it looks a little odd. Clippers actually work well if you use the 2 attachment... much faster. Sadly I broke up with the guy who had the clippers...
the hairy ass thing... yikes... she'll definitely benefit from her purchase.

As much as it pains me, i think when she told me she had a hairy ass i don't think this meant hairy buttock cheeks.

"shave my entire pubic hair off" -> shave off my entire pubic hair

"gentlemans clippers" -> gentleman's clippers

"It was during this conversation she enlightened me" -> It was during this conversation that she enlightened me

"at least not while their sober and fragile" -> at least not while they're sober and fragile

"must we go one step further and remove the lot." -> must we go one step further and remove the lot?

hey, english might not be your first language, baby, but we can speak the language of looooooove.

Was 'Not EvilTom' giving me shit?

It's got nothing to do with grooming, for me, but I wax it all off. OK, the little tiny lock left over is cosmetic, but the rest is all for sensation.

There's nothing like the feeling of a freshly waxed vulva - you want to wear silk skirts, naked underneath, all the time. Riding a motorcycle is more fun. Plain old vanilla sex is a million times more fun. Someone else's lips on your smooth clean ones is amazing.

You never realize the weird places pubic hair grows until you start grooming it away. But that is not a topic for polite conversation, for reals, especially not in line at the fucking store.

I would never, ever shave, though. The abrasions are hundreds of little tiny vectors for disease. Plus the hair grows back coarser. And razor burn, ew. And who on earth wants their cookie to smell like Oster's razor lubricant? Feh! But waxing, mmhm. When a well practiced professional does it, the sensation of hot wax on your nether regions can be quite a treat. If you're ever in SF and wanna give it a try, I can give you a great referral. ;)

Okay Jess, you've convinced me. I need to plan a trip to SF now. Or take a cold shower.

Do you know something Jessica? Since you articulated the experience so beautifully i'm almost tempted, yet the thought of hot wax on or near my vulva makes me a touch anxious.

I'm a big believer that a woman shouldn't have any body hair below the neck (or a man for that matter.)

by Charles at May 13, 2002 2:58 AM

Um, well legs and face for guys and of course everyone has hair on their arms- yeah. I should have said below the waist except for legs on gu . . or fuck it. I like it smooth, but it's not like I'm going to turn it away if it's all hairy and scary, either.

That said - single guys, don't get your hopes up. Every woman I've dated has given it up by the third date, natch.

ok..obviously waxing hurts!..so what if your a teenager (like me for instance) and you REALLY don't want to show yourself off to some stranger.. and obviously shaving doesn't do the trick..all you get from that is razer burn , bumps,bleeding...and it's VERY irritating..is there ANYTHING besides wax or shaving that actually works?? That is CHEEP!??? I guess looking good comes with a price!.....lots of pain and irritation!
