    I Dont Shave And I Dont Want To Ever Again

    Im 19 and i haven't shaved my legs going on about 6 months. What started it wasn't really a burst of feminism or some kind message to send to the world. Rather, it was my own realization that I was merely shaving to conform. I hated shaving. I was lazy at shaving, and even with...

    I don't shave because I don't feel

    that I should have to. I mean, why is that even a thing? I feel beautiful in my own skin. I'm often told that having hairy armpits or hairy legs is "unbecoming". But **** it, I look exactly how I want to look. As far as I'm concerned, if I wasn't meant to have body hair, it...

    Do What You Want - Shouldnt Have To If You Dont Want To

    Ok - I admit I remove the hair from my legs and underarms. I guess that's just the cultural norm where I live. It's what my mom taught me to do, it's what all my girlfriends do. I guess a lot of women shave their private area these days. I know I've seen some of the girls in gym...

    What's The Point? Who Started That?

    Why is it acceptable for men to have body hair, but not women? It truly baffles me. lol My girlfriend doesn't shave her legs or underarms, and it is sexy to me- the fact that she is confident enough to defy convention, and the fact that she is all natural. If a woman chooses...

    One More Step Towards My Natural Self

    Hi there! I'm the author of the "I'm not bald down there anymore" story, which you can read in this group.  I'm posting this one now to let you know that I've also decided to leave my leg hair alone: I used to shave every week (winter), or every day in the summer, and my legs...

    Women Can Do What They Want

    It's not only about shaving, it's wearing the make-up, fixing the hair just perfect, needing to be thin.  It's all the media that brain-wash us saying we don't look perfect to their ideal of a women.  Women get that message starting out as a beautiful little...

    Nobody says women have to shave lol.

    Who comes up with this stuff. If a girl has hairy legs, armpits or a vag it's not like she gets fined or sent to jail. It's their choice whether they shave or not. Most guys would rather not date a girl with braidable armpit hair though

    Don'T Be Pressured Into It

    I believe that women shouldn't have to be forced to shave like evrybody else because people around them and the media tells them too. There is a lot of precious time and energy doing something that doesn't last. But there is something very sensual and very appealing about a women...

    Hi there! As stated on some other experiences I

    shared on this group, I chose to stay away from hair removal products, so I've been walking around with my hairy body. In Portugal, most people are dark haired, so it was quite usual to see women with hairy arms and pubes - inside their panties - until total hairlessness below...

    I Heard Waxing Is Better Than Shaving. I Have Never Tried Waxing.

    Of course when you shave you get razor burns. Man. I dislike it.

    Nothing Wrong With The Natural Human Body

    I don't believe women should feel pressured into shaving. It's distressing to think many women feel they have to remove their natural body hair to be acceptable to society. As though there's anything wrong with the natural human body! Of course not. I like to shave because it's...

    I'm always surprised

    when my pubic hair is greeted with a gasp. It's trimmed ,tidy and I think it looks good. I'd love my girlfriends to be hairier instead of smooth.

    The Truth About Shaving

    The topic has been raised that **** is the cause for society's apparent need to shave body hair. Yes, true to a degree. I will also add, though, that it's not merely because of ****. In fact, **** got onto the band wagon as much as the rest of society that bent to pressure...

    I am one of those women that waxes. I do not like to shave and I don't but I like to be smooth and silky all over; I do not want body hair anywhere on me. However with that said I understand that some women like to leave themselves natural and hairy and I have nothing against...

    Women Should Be Hairless Below Her Eye Lashes.

    Women should not have to shave,but she should always be hairless below her eye lashes. Waxing is better,may be a hot wax,a little painful but worthy. Brazilian wax is a must before you go for a honeymoon. I know there are few men who loves hairy women( Hair at Spl Location),but I...

    I think shaving is a purely personal decision.

    I go back and forth on shaving my pubes. I like the human body smooth and hairy so it makes no difference to me. Women shouldn't feel they have to shave at all.

    So I was thinking about all of this recently,

    and I am starting to find shaving to be quite a nuisance! I have always shaved my legs, under arms and trimmed and shaved my privates. In the winter, and when I'm getting less action if you know what I mean, I always let everything grow out a little. However, when I have a man...

    I don't shave, and I shouldn't have to.

    If I've got hair growing on me whether it's on my arms, under my arms, or on my v*gina, I know it's there for a reason otherwise I wouldn't have it. I heard my friends talking yesterday about how they were feeling so exasperated over having to shave for homecoming, and I could...

    Ladies, leave it natural,

    shave it all or trim it. I don't care, really. Whatever makes you feel most comfortable. Just don't tell women who grow theirs out that it is "gross". That is such a stupid comment that betrays your intelligence. For thousands of years, guys have LOVED the look of a bush...

    So, I never really felt girls had to shave,

    because my mom was a hippy. I shaved, because I wanted to try things out and now I kinda don't want to. I like to shave my armpits and sometimes my legs, but everywhere else is kinda more painful. I don't feel like I should shave for society, or what a guy will think. I...

    A Teen In The Dark

    Hey I've been desperately searching for a friend. Yes I'm fifteen but friendship does not require age. Does it? If there's someone out there who is frantically looking for someone they can rely on, we have mutual interests. Can we be friends please?

    Take The Pressure Off....

    washed and trimmed is just fine...no need to shave at all in my opinion, and just because the media makes you feel like you have to isn't a good enough reason.

    I shave my armpits but not my legs,

    leg hair is there for a reason. I mean, I often wear tanks and that's why I shave my armpits- to reduce rumors bullying lies opinions etc. I don't shave other parts because it's supposed to be itchy and I like natural. Leg hair isn't bad and I find leg hair perfectly "normal...
