    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Hi there! As stated on some other experiences I

    A Teen In The Dark

    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.
