I Don't Believe That Women Should Have to Shave

    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...

    It's Sometimes About Heritage...

    I appreciate those who uphold their national heritage. Whether it be speaking a native tongue, family traditions, or not shaving. A fellow Soldier of mine, born in the US, is of German heritage. A few months agow, when we were in our PT uniform for training, I noticed that she...

    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.

    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...

    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 Am One Of Those Women

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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 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...

    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

    Hi there! As stated on some other experiences I

    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...

    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...
