The shaving crazePage 12 of 16    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16)
The OP didn't specify that he was inquiring about pubic area- he just isn't turned on by women who depilate. Could be pubes, or legs, or arm pits, or moustaches and goatees. OP, you need to start lookin' in the way, waaaaay back hills; the metro ladies are probably not offering what you want.

Extremes are not usually good.

I agree, which is kinda why all those arms-crossed, just-say-no to everything, in unison, rethuglicans should be retired at the next opportunity. But that "middle ground" pendulum swings as well. Like, whatever happened to those Rudy somebody ladies swimsuits in the '70's-'80's that fully exposed a woman's breasts? Lol I kinda miss those. As a practical matter, a "trim" mostly resolves the "dental floss" issue, so that pretty much leaves aesthetics, and texture. It just seems as if the skin on and around the genitals is the very softest kind, and for that reason alone, ought to be brought to the fore. And the visual? Opponents seem usually to throw that prepubescent rock at us bare-skin relishers. Hey, bare skin is waaay better than bearskin, imho. And the great sculptors throughout history seemed to agree. I have never seen an anatomically quasi-correct Greek, or Italian, or any other culture's statuary with pubic hair "penciled" into the stone. Lol
But I gotta concede this much: as a kid, I scored a Playboy from my uncle's stash. The centerfold was an auburn nymph whose uber delectable sprawled out (on a hammock, in the sun) body was covered with little wispy white hairs, the kind that turn ugly when they grow up, but daayymm, THAT body's hair was, um, stimulating.


<div class="quote"> In my most humble opinion shaveing is the best thing to happen . As a kindred part-time patron of the "arts", I gotta wholeheartedly concur. There are all kinds of enhancements we, both genders, do to our bodies to "present well" (which is everything, right?)- cosmetics, gym time, tatts and pierces (yeah, even the ears!), steroids for the truly misguided, botox, collagen injections, plastic butt and breast lifts, hair styles and making it do something other than what it wants to do. Shaving pubes is way less radical, imho, than most of these enhancements, and besides, it's just a temporary fix.

Sooo, to call it a shaving "craze" seems extreme to me.

today's society makes it seem like enjoying normal pubic hair and not liking the prepubescent barbie look is some sort of fetish these days..

If you can't tell the difference between a woman and a prepubescent barbie doll (which there are is only one: Skipper, and she's not a big seller!) you have issues that aren't based around hair ~ more based around plastic toys made by Mattel.

^^^^^^^^^I got it the first go round, but thanks for clarification.

~OT~ I don't believe personal hygiene habits have a damn thing to do with fads or the porn industry. I've been bare since long before any "craze" came about and will be bare for the duration of my life. That includes any hair that isn't on the top of my head. I also prefer the man in my life to have exceptionally nit-picky hygiene habits his own self. If not, and he's not open to shaving? For me ~ instant deal breaker. Much like someone who wants a chia pet down there ~ not the man for me and I'm certainly not the woman for him. JMO

I believe more and more women are shaving because they think men might prefer it OR for what they identify as hygiene purposes. I've met a couple of men who shave themselves, but one of them actually, like the OP, prefers women who don't.

I agree with one poster who indicated it was a bit selfish to demand one's partner to shave or not. I do what I'm comfortable with and prefer the fella I'm seeing to do the same regarding personal shaving habits. I might tell him what I like but wouldn't dictate what he does.

Humans....no doubt the goofiest species of herd animals that has ever put foot on earth. A high school kid in my neighborhood gets an eye injury and thinks it would be cute to wear a black pirates patch over the normal doctors eye dressing. He goes back to school the next day to find that there are about twenty other idiots walking around wearing black eye patches....so called grown ups are no different. There are hundreds of dating sites with thousands of members each, all whining that it's so hard to find a match....at the same time, most are looking for new ways to isolate themselves from the mainstream. Yeah boy!....just keep poking holes in your faces, inking up your bodies, play with razor blades on your pubes, seek out another thousand or so other religious or political cults to follow, and sure enough....you are bound to find someone perfectly compatable to you in every way.

Bald is beautiful

I've been wondering why the people who claim "bald is beautiful" haven't shaved the hair on their heads?? Why not go for the complete hairless Kojak look?? Meanwhile ... shave your eyebrows too.

I may sounf harsh but i will hand her a razor and say go clean it up or I just wont touch the woman

Furthermore, any dude who demand that his partner shaves it off for his own pleasure is nothing more than some selfish self-centered narcissistic ignoramus ass who is full of himself. I don't believe that looking like some chimpanzee is attractive, but to shave the pubes completely is a ridiculous cue ball imitation.

^^^^^Trying pulling down his pants in one quick motion so that his one-eye-snake pops up suddenly ... distracting you from your chia pet nightmare.

okay guys if you want keep the pit hair but but but trim it close close close

If the dude shaved his pubes "close close close" ... wouldn't that leave just "stubbles stubbles stubbles"?? Those stubbles could cause irritation on your bare landscape during the heat of passion, no??

you'll poke your eye out!

Have goggles ... will travel.

I like to look at it from the angle of common courtesy.

I don't enjoy going down on a woman with a full on untrimmed bush, nor would I expect her to do the same. If you don't want to shave, then at the very least keep it trimmed right down.

I put it into the same category as basic personal hygiene. I would want any woman I'm with to have good personal hygiene so I ensure that I do the same. Before any date I make sure to have another shower, wash up real good and make sure everything is trimmed up nicely.

Pubic hair is discusting on myself and a woman

but they did show a few girls with full bushes!!! They looked discusting!!!

For people who find bushes disgusting, they can't even spell the word. I suppose the aversion to pubes has killed a brain cell or two.

In my experience I've found that women do however greatly appreciate good grooming in the nether regions

Good grooming is one thing, but this thread is about crazed people taking razors to their pubes and going nuts ... pun intended for the dudes.

for the girls, just admit that you've jumped on this hairless bandwagon in the belief that you think it makes you look hotter and come off as more sexual -- you know, like the porno stars



For the guys, just be upfront and honest and say that you shave your balls because you think it makes your c*ck look bigger



These hairphobia mutants are unbalanced

Imagine if you will, eating an ice cream cone. You swirl your tongue around it, you lick horizontally; vertically, and even suck the ice cream from the tip, wrapping your lips around it gently and drawing the sweet velvety creation into your mouth, closing your eyes and savoring the flavor as it assaults your senses.

Now imagine that same ice cream cone, but covered in hair, save for a strip up the middle. You concentrate solely on that section, making tentative licks, occasionally becoming a little bolder, but never straying too far as the texture beyond the strip is foreign and slightly distasteful. Are you getting full enjoyment from that ice cream cone, or are you merely engaging in a futile battle..one that brings you some pleasure, certainly, but leaves you feeling slightly empty and dissatisfied, the knowledge lurking below the surface that so much is going to waste?

Now imagine a woman..her skin bare, the flesh glowing, covered in a fine sheen of perspiration and nothing else. Imagine peppering kisses down towards her navel; beyond, to the firm jutting mound of her pelvis..the skin smooth and bare…trailing the tip of your tongue around in lazy circles as she moans softly..imagine going lower, kissing along the inside of her thighs, the small outer petals that protect the beauty within..the skin satiny smooth and bare and oh so soft..the petals gradually open to your gentle coaxing, her inner beauty swelling and peeking out, begging to be touched…you explore every inch of her hidden desires, reveling in the amazing treasure you find there..your senses assaulted with her texture, her taste, the divine beauty laid bare before your eyes, nothing hidden, nothing inaccessible..and as she rises to meet you, to show her desire and her passion you know in that one moment in time that there could never be anything as flawless, as utterly sublime as the flower that blooms before you…the one not hidden in the underbrush, unable to ever fully bloom and display it’s spectacular beauty…

~shrugs~

That’s why *I* shave.

OMG.... hate trying to see the forest through the trees! Then again if it's tightly trimmed in the shape of a little landing strip I appreciate the creative efforts. What the heck, the girls like it visa versa and I'm OK with that.

Aw BDJ, you didn't like my flower analogy huh? Sorry, I could have used more colorful terminology, but that's not how I write.



I think I just threw up a little in my mouth just now


Perhaps in the future you could come up with an original insult, rather than spewing (pun intended) a totally overused catch phrase...;^)

But seriously, always open to criticism, makes me a better writer.

OT: I find body hair distasteful. On myself, and on men, at least pubic hair anyway. I have never had a partner complain..in fact, all of them seemed rather appreciative. I am sure there are plenty of women who don't shave, or who only trim a bit. Like everything else, it's all a matter of preference.

My thoughts exactly BigDaddy. I didn't even bother quoting her entire post. Posted once is enough. breathless went way overboard in Msg 369 extolling the virtues of her bare landscape in vomiting detail ...

your senses assaulted with her texture, her taste, the divine beauty laid bare before your eyes, nothing hidden, nothing inaccessible..and as she rises to meet you, to show her desire and her passion you know in that one moment in time that there could never be anything as flawless

... not realizing that "her texture", "her taste", "her divine beauty" and self-proclaimed "flawlessness" can all be easily undone by a bad case of yeast infection. No matter how "pristine" her bare bits are ... a hint of green in her girl-goo will be equally as unappealing ... with or without hair.

Somehow, she's implying that women ... not shaven ... isn't have her equal in "exquisitely spectacular beauty".

Please give everyone a break from your royal majesty, breathless. A shaved woman is boring plain jane.

I also find women with bald vaginas to be a big turn-off. I don't want a vagina that looks like it belongs to a 12 yr old. I want a real woman with a real "bush". Men need to start boycotting bald vaginas!

Apparently, deranged people do make weird comparisons. A bald vagina has more similarities to a taco than an ice cream cone.

there are probably a few facebook groups already!

LOL ... is that a hint of some kind??
Facebook and Vaginas?? uhmmm?? That conjures up some unspeakable images.

its becoming scary, how all women are starting to look alike, the valley of the dolls comes to mind, its like women do not want to look human anymore,then again i am older, and remember how exciting it was to see a girls hair down there, some where natural blonds, brunets, or red, some very hairy, some soft and silky, shaving , to me, takes away from the unique beauty every woman is naturally gifted with
and its not just shaving, its labia reconstructive surgery, electrolasis, breast augmentation, breast reduction, all of these ARE FETISHES, because they are not natural

I believe in deferring to my partner's preference and would find that out before any unveiling. The thing is, there should be enough time to have the different options be made available between said partners. If there isn't, the landscaping is the least of anyone's worries.

People who fall for such nonsense are usually followers who hop on the herd mentality bandwagon because they feel a need to fit in with the crowd. They think it's trendy doing weird things with their body parts.

I was under the impression that shaved was the way to go these days

Wrong. Shaved is the way to go for those who feel the urge to succumb to fad ideas. For people with sensible mentalities, neatly trimmed is preferred. That is ... NO bald vaginas, NO buzz cuts and NO juvenile landing strips.

SHAVED all the way...or a tiny landing strip

I've waited for the time in my life where the women were old enough not to attract me near as much as my other interest. Looks the timing was about perfect, the bush dried up at the same time that I ceased to give a shyt.....or did the bush drying up cause me to not give a shyt?
