You'd shave too if you dated a guy with braces.

I haven't posted on a forum until I ran across this topic....and when I'm done here, many of you will say thank God for that. Those of you claiming the history of this shaving trend came from the porn industry are off base. It was done by the lowest class hookers in mining camps during the gold rush as crab prevention and in other countries for the same reason, long before then. Why any woman would want to emulate this stigma today is beyond my reason. I can remember when I could make a personal investment of my time and money dating and had a reasonable idea of what to expect if the relationship made it to that level. Today, it's like buying a box of "Cracker Jacks" but the prize could be a surprize....there is no telling what could be lurking under those panties these days..... things that should be under a diaper or even a jock strap ...No, I haven't been quite that unlucky, thank God...but I know a few who have. Let's see....you can find those that appear to be under chemo and radiation therapy or something that was highjacked from a nine year old, decorative models that look like a page from the funny papers, or even jewelry displays with various loops and chains. Now.. if you have really p*ssed off the Gods.....you might find all three on the same woman. Isn't it amazing how you could be so aroused one minute and then look like you've been hit with a bucket of icewater the next, when her clothes hit the floor...life is wonderful I love it when they ask "what's wrong".....Gee honey, I don't know whether to read it, wear it or feel sorry for it......or, was that actually genatilia before Gillette and all the local artist got a hold of it? Does it amaze anyone that what worked and was normal for all of human history just doesn't cut it anymore for the modern woman and some peculiar men? Could any of you real men have ever imagined the day would come when a full grown man would be whinning about a little pube in his mouth? I spent most of my life whinning because I couldn't get enough in mine. Now we know who they had to genetically engineer seedless grapes and oranges for. Do you remember the day that if a grown man told you he liked bare female genitalia, that you would have shot him for getting within a hundred feet of your daughters? I haven't dated in years for fear of what un-natural mutilated female genitalia someone could spring on me....I'm still trying to recover from the last shock from years ago. Do not despair, real men of America, I think we can solve our problem. Sense our ladies and the strange men who love them, seem to love the unreal...phoney wigs, phoney nails, phoney breast and every physical modification that can be made with a knife, suction device, ice pick or can of ink......they should take to the kootchie wig like a duck to water...after all, it is phoney...right? We can also take responsibility ourselves by bringing along our very own. I'm going to make mine from a piece of sheep hide and dye it black......leave it natural if you like blondes and use fox fur for redheads. A hole in the middle and some counter top adhesive, and there you have it my friends....a real complete, natural looking kootchie just like the good old days when women were women and little girls were little girls. When the fun is over and you rip this thing back off....one of two things will happen, she will either discover a new found advantage of having her own hair, or you will never see her again....either way, a win, win. A "bless you" goes to the very few women left that are not impressionable like children and follow every trend that comes down the pike.....may your grand hairy mound replace the eagle on American currency as a symbol of womanhood past and our masculine hopes for the future. As for the five o'clock shadow crowd that's about to flame me in defence of razor burn.....save your breath, because there were zero complaints from either gender twenty+ years ago or hundreds of thousands of years before that....but now we've got issues. So what does that prove?

Daepok....that was funny. Are you sure that was a pube and not a white string in your throat? Those are really tough, even a drink of water doesn't seem to help much.

Fourums....or should that be forums? I see that you've been a member for a month, yet have many times more posts than those that have been here for years. You seem to be living here...am I correct? I also assume that you can't have sex and type your life away at the same time. Sooooooooo.....How's THAT working for YOU? A little careful reading might reveal that I said "and long before then"....I don't think the exact date of 1450 was necessary. I also see no claim of anything being my invention, other than your unnecessary details, you pretty much repeated my remarks. I guess "the real man" comment I made in the previous post yanked your chain a bit.....well, you know what they say...if the shoe fits?

Actually, body hair removal was being done in the times of the Egyptian Pharaohs. All body hair except for the hair on their head, eyebrows and eyelashes was removed using a process called smoothing or sugaring. It was made up of sugar, lemon and some other natural ingredients and cooked until it was much like today's waxes. The paste would be rubbed off or pulled off taking the hair with it. In harems hair removal was mandatory.

Monfil , I remember being on the beaches as a child and teenager in the fifties and sixties and the only females that didn't have a little fuzz sticking out of their bathing suits were girls under the age of 11. There wasn't such a thing as "the dreaded pube".....they were natural and accepted just like a topless Zooloo woman in Africa. That's part of my point about how warped and phobic our society is becoming. Our current ideals of modesty says that it's just fine to put your bare mound in the face of a total stranger for some tattoos and the ice pick treatment but heaven forbid someone on the beach should see one of your pubic hairs....is this ironic or what? I feel so sorry for todays woman and the burden that she feels necessary to creat for herself.....go to the tanning booth, get my hair done, my finger nails, toe nails..shave my legs, my pits, my kootchie....pluck my eyebrows, do my makeup, put on perfume, my hose, my heels, match my purse, install my clit ring, my nose ring and sixteen earrings......holy crap, I forgot to shower and I'm late for work! Ladies...what's the next time consuming craze you are going to add to the list? If it keeps going like this, you will be getting up at 4:00 am just to get finished in time for bed. Is there no limit on how much superficial trivia one will go through for the sake of trend? I tend to think that women spend so much time doing things they feel make them sexy, that there is no time left for sex Maybe because I'm old, I can look back and see how crazy things have gotten. I remember my Mom would get out of the shower, pull her hair back in a pony tail, slip into a summer dress, pair of pumps and she was ready for the world. She looked and smelled great and turned every head in eyesight. Men seem to remain the same over time but women keep evolving or morphing into stranger things.....the future scares me. I'm glad I won't be here to see it. I've seen a few already that I barely recognized as human.....especially when it comes to hair color, tattoos and taste in clothing......yep, I'm talking about fifty +year old women that allow their teenage daughter to teach them to shave, tattoo and dress to be cool.....I always thought it should be the other way around.....but what do I know? Could you imagine fifty or sixty year old men walking around with his cap on backwards and the a$$ of his pants below his knees with untied sneakers? You women would laugh your fannies off if we did such things. We don't take advice from or copy our sons, we allow THEM to look stupid and hope they grow out of it. I wish todays women would do the same, not a day goes by that I don't spot a tattooed gothic granny in skin tights with grey hair roots climbing into a mustang convertable.....and they talk about our midlife crises.

Monfil.......Dude?...you refer to all senior citizens as Dudes? My daughter is too old to use that terminology, so I doubt you are anywhere near old enough to know anything first hand about the fifties or sixties, I doubt that your mother is old enough.....but thanks for telling me about it.

I prefer a little hair. I've heard a lot of women say they do it because it makes them feel cleaner and they are afraid of having odor down there when they have hair. My experience has shown that in actuality the opposite is true because when you are completely shaved you actually tend to sweat more.

Mtn.lover, great post. the thing that stands out for me is the abosolute disgust many of the pro shaver/waxers have for the real female body, both male and female. Its disgusting, its dirty, I hate hair.... Kinda frightening really that these people have to have their bodies modified to enjoy sex, and that anyone who doesnt follow their so called "preferences" are wrong, disgusting and apparently dirty.

The pube comments are particularily amusing, I wasnt aware that sex is supposed to be a sanitized act

Actually, it seems that the "short 'n' curlies" trend is already making its way back into popularity. Many porn stars who were totally shaven are leaving a bit there in newer films...or so I've heard. I mean, I've never actually SEEN one of those types of things, yeah, that's it! Seriously, though, some bush is on its way back. So ladies, how much hair do you like on a man in his "naughty zone"? Where one likes nothing, another likes some, or just parts trimmed...this is just as much our issue as well!

It's always a pleasure to see some fur sticking out of a woman's swimsuit. I like to think it's saying "This is a crotch that just doesn't know how to hide". Of course, the whole issue is different if you go to the nude beach. Then you can let it fly in the breeze, and get caught in the trees.

Grizzelda - I agree. People are WAY too hung up on the way their and their lovers bodies look and smell. The natural body of a healthy adult who follows basic hygiene is not dirty or disgusting. The militant people on both sides could be missing out on some great relationships just because the potential partner does or does not shave something. How silly is that...

While I prefer shaved, I also like the hair. Perfect situation is going a few months with either and then switching!

I don't have a problem with pubes and I don't believe being natural or shaved has any health benefits over the other. I just do not want to walk around looking like I have Chewbaca in my panties!

For me its just less time consuming to get rid of it all rather than shaving everything outside of the bikini line and then trimming back whats left.

Not so fast seeker, some people do love a face full of hair...ME! I love unwrapping presents, peeling oranges....walking through a jungle hunting for a cave of gold. I've never seen a woman that had more hair than I could tolerate. I like whip cream on my desert, ice cream on peach pie, and a generous serving of hair on my kootchie. It's the welcome mat to the gates of heaven. Different colors, densities, shapes and sizes....it all adds individual character to what otherwise would be just a slit. Sense 90% of a womans genitalia is inside, the very little else to give it a character of it own. Think how a hair style on a human can change their looks and their overall individuality. I remember in the army when they shave our heads. Lined up in formation, we looked like a carton of eggs. From twenty feet away, you couldn't tell who was who. It's the same to me with a kootchie....maybe I'm just a purest and appreciate it as a fine piece of natural art. Take the paint from a picture and what do you have besides a blank canvas? I remember when I was a teen at the beach doing the normal girl watching. Some girls would come by with some pubes sticking out the sides of their swim suit and it would drive me crazy. It was just like little teasers sticking out talking to me.."guess what's under here"? I remember many times having to grab a beach towel to hide the effect it had on me. My buddies would roll over on the sand pounding it with their fist saying..."OMG...did you see that"? It was like trophy game hunting, the biggest rack on a deer, the biggest fish and of course the biggest bush. Ahhh..the good old days, when a big furry bushes of many colors was held in high regard....real trophies! Today, they all look the same....like swim suit mannequins at J.C. Penny's.....Now , I'd rather watch paint dry. If it looks like it could bite my leg off.....that's the one for me! Any other wannbe lion tamers out there, or am I just the last of a dying breed?

P.S. This cleanliness issue is a bunch of crap. My wife was shaved every time before giving birth and it took quit a while for it to grow back. She had zero odor with a full bush, but always had musky sweat smell (even just after a shower) when she was shaved until it all grew back. Mother nature didn't put hair on your body in certain places without reason.....it's to seperate skin to skin contact so air can pass through for ventilation. Skin to skin doesn't allow the sweat to evaporate and causes it to grow more bacteria in the dampness. Your eyebrows and lashes are to catch foreign matter from your eyes. The hair on your head prevents direct contact with the sun and keeps you warm in the cold. the hair on your legs and arms is designed to alert you of insects trying to get to your skin. Facial hair for men is the marker of his gender, much the same as a lions mane. There is a logical and mechanical reason for every hair on your body. My wife once challenged me to shave under my arms just to see what it's like for her. I did it, much to my regret.....it was sticky and hot. I had armpit ordor in less than three hours after a shower and never had detectable ordor before under the same conditions. I had to keep baby powder under my arms until the hair grew back. When it was all grown back, the problem was gone. Any positive results you think you gain by shaving is a figment of your imagination. So those who think they can out engineer or improve on mother nature.......guess again!

Warm moist places are breading grounds for bacteria etc.

Especially, yeast infections.

I love a natural or trimmed woman. I just have the feeling I'm making love to an adult and I love the sight of me disappearing into a natural bush.

Just my preference.

this shaving craze is actually a shaving fetish.....it is unnatural and gross.... the idealization of pre pubesent girls, and boys, trimmed and neat is one thing, but shaved is another thing all together.....its amazing how mass media can make people do the most unnatural things.....as if women, and now men did not have enough body image problems

It's a personal hygeine thing now.

Hair traps odor, and sweat, and all sorts of things.

Would you rather have a girl with no hair, or a girl who constantly has a yeast infection.

.... just asking.

And a gir having hair is not an automatic deal breaker for me... but it is if she won't change it.

Her not changing that to me is like me not bathing, or wearing deoderant. I don't know a single girl my age or younger who is not a virgin who doesn't.

My advice to the guys out there that like it, is to find a woman who is accepting of your kink and does not mind accomodating it.

The rest of us like our clean, pretty, nice smelling modern ladies who know how to look good rocking some cheekies from VS.

Does anyone realize that this is one of the contributions to modern cultural phenomena by the pornography industry? I am no expert on porn, but there is a great deal of evidence that shaving pubes has it origins in pornography


My only expertise is in how best to handle my own genitals, but, to accept /\/\/\ as gospel, you have to believe that there were no bald ladies before the introduction of porn, and before the porn evil geniuses (or is it genii, like penii?lol) starting showing hairless ones, which happened sometime after the 1970's. I think the blame lies elsewhere (maybe those nefarious Nair folks, or those genital/manipulative maniacs at Gillette, Lol).
Nope, I think porn is more a mirror, reflecting what's already in us, but like one of those fun-house mirrors that distort the hell out of your image, except it sorta flatters you when you look into it (projections).
I like to advance people credit for being more creative and self-directing than those angelfish in the tanks that all turn, in unison, in the same direction. Sometimes, I'm wrong.

I've done it a few different times but the keep up sucks so I went back to trimming instead...if I were with a man who I was in a relationship with and that was HIS preference I suppose I would oblige him...might even make it part of foreplay LOL!

I've noticed that a lot of men are shaving these days as well....doesn't really matter to me whether a man does this or not but if he does he should keep it up cause it can get a bit prickly for lack of a better description LMAO!
