Are men uncomfotable when a woman doesn't shave her ARMPITS?Page 1 of 8    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
O.K.. I can't stand to shave my armpits because it is so uncomfprtable. It also looks hrorid because I get a rash. So I don't and never really cared what anyone thought. I never used to shave my legs either.. I am not very hairy on my legs.
I never get much flake about it if any. But, one fellow later after I stopped seeing him said that he had been leary in the beginning, he'd never been with a woman who didn't shave her armpits. I thought that was ridiculous sounding (didn't tell him that though).

So honestly would it throw you for a loop? A little loop? maybe a teensy tiny one?
Or do you think it makes more sense, is sexy?

My ex-wife didn't shave her arm pits for one winter. I kind of thought it was oddly sexy, but I'm weird anyway, so your probably shouldn't listen to me. I'm not sure about the legs though, I like smooth legs.

I have fair fair and sensitive skin -- I'm a Fitzpatrick Type II if that tells you anything. (I think Type I is "albino" -- eek!) Anyway... I think shaving is pretty evil too, but I sure like the looks of things better when they're smooth. Look up this stuff called TEND SKIN on the internet and buy it. It really does what it says it does -- eliminates the red bumps and irritation, but you have to use it as directed. (Use only on dry skin.) Great stuff - great for bikini area problems too.

Even better - laser hair removal. *Thank you, God, for laser techology!*

Of course, I think it's stupid that we got some dumb idea in our heads to shave things that naturally come with hair, but we're stuck with it now.

Coming from a girl, I think it's just wrong to have hairy pits.

If you get a rash from shaving, try waxing. There are ways around it.

The last time I went to Italy, in '92, I was in Milan. I was driving around with my cousins, and there were a group of teenagers hanging out on the side of the road. I noticed this one girl...a very attractive girlwith long blonde hair, wearing a pretty little sundress. Apparently, someone she knew drove by, and she waved.

I got scared, her pits were so hairy. I asked if she was a transvestite. My cousin explained that it isn't customary for women to shave their pits.

What do I have to say about that?

God bless America!

Lusty, What is wrong? Are you referring to having hair in a females armpits.

Amazing! no one has ever complained before (the man I mentioned) including women friends. I have a lot of them too. I have two here now I will go and ask them there view on my armpit hair.
Could it be all this time they were mortified? I think not they are a pretty well traveled, openminded bunch. ... Well here goes! Then off to dinner.

I will give an update soon.

The update from the pits of hair....
I teach out of my home and live in tank tops. SO far my last two students, one a teenager and one an adult both don't care. One never noticed as his mother has hair there. The other is one of my best buddies who shaves but could care less unless someone stinks.

I am happy with my natural armpits, but thanks for the hair removal tips. My bikini area needs a solution as it gets irritated as well if I shave.

There is always a way! Armpits are meant to be shaved, on a female anyway. Unless your married I think, then ya don't have to do it quite so frequently cause hey, they are your husband, they don't care how hairy ya are, they love ya for who ya are. But I don't know many men that when they first meet a gal go for the yetti look. Ya wanna look your absolute best to be attractive to them, don't ya? shave those pits!

I may be weird but just as I find hairy armpits on a woman disgusting I also find it equally as disgusting on men. I can't stand looking at mens underarms, it grosses me out lol In my opinion I think men should shave there too. I don't mind hairy legs or chests but underarms? ick.

" Armpits are meant to be shaved,"
hmmmmmmmmmm??????????????????
So
If your religious, then it could be a mistake of our creator?
Or it grows on woman to keep the razor industry in buisness?

Here are some views infavor of women being comfotable and less conditioned by society...
I found these on another forum.
I thought it was supportive to those who enjoy a womans natural state. Or perhaps support women/girls who feel pressure to conform to societies standards or beauty.
I am not trying to change the hairless wonders viewpoints as it has never been a big deal to me. No offense intended.

Interestingly enough woman shaving really only started about 50 yrs ago.
Prostitues shaved to show they had no lice.

"I am a 42 year old male who personally finds shaven armpits to be disgusting. They look swollen from the injury of having the skin scraped with a weapon.
I am personally puzzeled as to why there has been a tendency towards feminine depilation over the course of this century, unless it is some plan of a bunch of closet pedophiles to try to make the women of the world look like pre-pubescent little girls. Body hair is a sign of sexual maturity. In my opinion, the only person who could be conciously sexually attracted to a depilated partner is either a closet pedophile, or a sadist who wants to deprive the partner of their adult identity.
I realize that this is an extreme interpretation, but nevertheless, this is how I feel.
Just because men have more body hair than women does not mean that a woman's body hair is unfeminine. It means that she is a sexually mature adult."


"Underarm hair is natural. It can be sexy, ugly, fascinating, and everything else. What is silly is how some women are disgusted by it, disgusted by their own bodies. Whether you shave, trim or just let it grow wild, you should be comfortable with yourself and not fixated on a few follicles that are there naturally"

so you feel that if God gave us hair in certain places then we should just accept it?

In which case, men should never shave either and all men would have long shaggy beards?

It's just part of living in civilised society....and I understand that in europe a lot of women don't shave but in this part of the world it is kinda the standard thing.

But Hey, to each his own. I mean it doesn't affect my life if you don't shave .... but I wouldn't want hairy armpits and I never had a problem with razor burn.

Oh hell no wouldn't bother me a bit, rastifari them out, snake braid them, afro americanize them in to tight little rows with beads, make them look like rat fur that black people like to wear on their heads nowadays, it is a sure fire way to pick up men. Christ in a side car they'll be lining up in your drive way in limo's and saleens just for a shot at taking you out where you can show the entre universe an arm pit coated with 12' hair. In fact I'd streak it with that deep red color sort of punk it out. let the old leg hairs go to hell in a hand cart also corn row them as well so you can have matching arm pit hair and leg hair. Get a guy with one eyebrow who speaks farsi and you'll be in like flyn. I just can't imagine what a great dating experience it would be to escort you to a black tie dinner you in a sleek sexy evening cown preferbally white with arm pit hair long enough to be a neck throw, and to hell with those cloned envoronmental terrorist pigs who are against natural fur what in the hell do they know anyway? And the scent of arm pit hair on a woman now what could be better than that I ask you? So to answer you question let it grow baby.

Vionine, you won't find much acceptance here, North Americans for the most part don't want to understand that people can be different. Growing up in a European family I saw it plenty, makes no difference to me. I lived in Spain a few years back and dated a gal that didn't shave either, she was sexy as hell, the unshaven look didn't make a bit of difference. Around here if it isn't plucked, shaved, waxed, filled with silicone or botox, nipped, tucked, lipo'd, or somehow artificially enhanced it's no good. Go figure!!!

Hey, I'm fine with it, as long as they don't mind me shaving mine. Hell, I'll even start shaving my legs to make up for the general paucity of hairlessness in the house.

Gotta keep the equilibrium going.

mcinlv.. Talk about exggerations.
Kind of defensive? What part of armpit hair do you take personally?
Most underarm hair isn't so long and noticable. It sounds like you've been to a jamaican armpit hair tournament. Could you be in the closet? This is the first step to your comming out, congrats!

I'd love to escort you to a black tie event also! It sounds like I will have to get extensions though. So you can find out what fun it is to play jump rope with my armpit hair> Muah!

I have not a shortage of male interest. I never gave my hair a second thought. I suppose I would have if it affected my love life.

As a musician, I wear sleevless evening gowns regularly. And perform at very hotsie totsie events. It is nice that I am not personally involved with superficial people, that fear the hair in my pit. If they do then I have compassion for their limitations.

I modeled a bit and that is when I had to shave.... Heck that job had limitations.

I don't mind who shaves or not. I shave my legs when I am enjoying a long bath on occassion. Just for the heck of it. Or if when I wear a short dress w/nylons.

hope to hear more opinions!

well got to go now and get extensions and cornrows for my date with cin. Kisses and hugs

I guess if a man likes B.O. it is ok.But as for me, I think a womans armpit area is a very sensual place, and not shaving it takes away from that
