Do you guys shave, you know, down there?

Watching the male swimmers at the Olympics I see they shave their armpits (what were you thinking???). Maybe this is why my swimming sucks, too much friction. smiley-laughing001

Odd I know, but when times only differ by a few milliseconds, I guess that they'll take any edge they can get.

That is common even in HS swimming. Water resistance is more than you would think.

……but that hair exists for a purpose….to reduce friction and wear.

Trim only. The only benefit to shaving is the ability to make

From what I've heard, for every lady who feels the way you describe there's another lady who feels just the opposite and likes hairy men very much, as do some of us guys.

Woof!

What "hygiene purposes"? It's hair, not black mold. You do realize the hair on top of your head is made of hair too, don't you?

To answer the original question, no, I proudly DON'T shave down there.

In high school the really good swimmers shaved down every year for the annual conference meets. I was an adequate swimmer so I didn't. I figured that going from 6th place to 5th place wasn't worth the grow-back itch.

......the hair down there is not quite the same as the hair up there.....otherwise they could do hair transplant.......

....stuff grows.....more with underarm than down there but even with a beard.....stuff gets in there that shouldn't be......and if you have a bush....it is harder for the deodorant/antiperspirant to actually get to where it needs to be.......

....do an experiment.....exercise heavily with full bush down there......then shave/trim and do the same....which smells funkier.....????

I am a bad stress-sweater.

I thought anti-perspirant was a hoax.

Until I got rid of the pit hair.

Much much better now.

Even the girls that like hairy men probably don't like massive sweat stains.

The hygiene thing is a myth, the hair does serve a protective function and removing the hair makes the skin more prone to infections of various kinds: [www.self.com]

... personally speaking, I don't like the bare look, it's prepubescent and creepy to me.

Most women in the US shave their pits.

Never thought it was creepy.

I (intermittently) partially shave my armpits. I keep enough to maintain the anti-skin-friction functionality (which is a real thing, I think), but just enough.

The advantage is less stank, plus the wipe-on antiperspirant I use (Degree) goes a lot farther.

I took Newt's comment (and space-time's title) to be referring to both... as other posters have alluded to, also.

And I see the armpit hair as no different from any other types. Yes, most US women shave their pits. Their choice... I wouldn't have a problem if they didn't.

years ago after hearing a female co-worker say any guy she dates has to shave “down there” i asked my son about this. he affirmed that that is the expectation of his generation and yes, he does shave if he expects to get busy.

it made me a bit sad.

i know. the social trend toward natural body hair being bad is what saddens me as a feminist. i also chose not to circumcise him. sometimes he expresses annoyance with me about that but not enough to go under the knife.

That IS sad, and I think very superficial for either gender to "expect" the other to be shaving down there.

Maybe you do. Not everyone goes for that look, and some are actively turned off by it.

Since you seem determined to push your "Fear of Follicular Product" / "Hatred of Hair" agenda, I will concede that if you're nearly hairless to begin with then shaving to complete the overall look might make sense, especially if doing so only takes two or three quick swipes per pit.

On the other hand if you're a naturally hairy guy all over, nothing will look more ridiculous than having clear-cut armpits amid a forest of fur, except possibly having other, more private areas clear-cut when the surrounding forest remains.

Most of us here are over 50 - I have a good buddy who is female and was probably 10 years younger than me and back in the day, she used to always dreaded getting the FULL Brazilian wax but felt she HAD to,

We've know each other for over 25 years but I can't remember what age or generation where shaving or waxing down there became a MUST. Back in my high school days (late 70's and early 80s) a hairy bush was somewhat or sometimes desirable and sexy?

Was it the 90's high school kids (born in the 70s) or later?

That sounds about right. Probably not coincidentally around the same time the overall goal of fashion as a whole went from "I want you to find me sexy" to "I challenge you to find me sexy".

ok so this post put a thought in my head that hadn't occurred to me before. i refreshed my son's memory on our conversation a few years ago and asked him if women of his generation ALSO shaved their own pubic area in addition to expecting men to. he said yes of course.

this lesbian mom's mind is so blown! kids nowadays!

i asked if pubic hair was a turn off for him. he said no unless there's a lot of it. i didn't seek detail on what would constitute a lot...

I have no idea what kids young adults these days are into regarding pubic hair. As for porn, hair had almost entirely disappeared, but has made somewhat of a comeback in the last few years. We haven't gone back to the 70s and 80s--and probably never will--but you do see some hair in the mainstream.

BTW, I consume porn so you don't have to. You're welcome. grinning smiley

"If they want to take it off, they take it off. If they want to grow it back, they grow it back. But they're doing it because they want to."


I heartily endorse this position (!) but prefer if they leave it off for all the reasons noted in the article.

I like the aesthetic and never, before or now, associate it with prepubescence.

The presence of pubic hair is not necessary to tell me she is a legal age, consenting adult.


"You can't really tell how soft it is until a woman waxes. Oh my God, you can't believe how soft it is when you wax," 28-year-old Mark gushed. "It's extremely, extremely soft, so it feels great when you have sex."

Pinto may not agree, but I endorse the above observation.

And every woman I've known who's shaved or waxed has felt the same as Mark above.

I do not miss '70s bush.
