I hate female body hair, it is just too similar to doing a man if they left all their body hair :P

Ha, i asked my boyfriend what he'd do if i decided to go au natural..
He wasnt very impressed with this idea and pulled numerous odd faces but eventually came out with "Id still love you... i just wouldnt touch you much". Haha, alright then. I told him he was so heavily influenced from the media, social attitudes and too much porn. He seemed a little hurt at this but i suppose it is true for everyone. I dont even like to have any hair anywhere. But my goshh... it is expensive and frigging expensive to get it all off.
Plus my hair is like some frigging curse it just grows and grows. Its stupid. So i spend so long waxing, shaving and epilating, veeting. Its not fun.
But i reckon guys saying its disgusting is a bit strong. You try prepubescing yourself!

but it shouldn't be gross! it's natural. and it's not a hygiene issue. So why have we been programmed to think it's disgusting?
DId you watch a while back in April or so, that Channel 4 series 'The Sex Education Show vs. Pornography'?

Kinda enlightened to me where some guys got a lot of their 'perceptions' from..

Whoa - so now it isn't?! :rolleyes:

Why choose to look at something that could be straightforward and fun as difficult and boring instead? Ooh - unless you want it to be difficult and boring... (Now there's an idea: I could found a sect all around this and name it "emo-masochism" - woop!)

But hey - your reality is your prerogative. Whether or not you choose to discover more enjoyable ways to handle your sexy bits is entirely your call.
FUN? Fun? Girls are supposed to find shaving or whatever down there fun, right?
Maybe start with the fact that unless you go to a beauty salon barely any hair removal treatments are actually recommended for use 'down there'.
As a certain someone found out, that was for a reason. An extremely painful reason considering a normally painLESS 'for sensitive skin' route.

Guys may enjoy that sort of thing, but they could have the decency to forewarn, rather than expect.

Bodyhair on women is disgusting. Women have been removing it for thousands of years and I can see why.

It's equally disgusting on you too, actually.

There was a girl at uni who doesn't shave her armpits. I was genuinely nearly sick the first time I saw it.

But to be fair I hate body hair on anyone, male or female. But female is worse for some reason.

More than likely. If I had the time I'd shave all over but I don't, seeing as I have more than just legs and armpits to shave.

Although plenty of girls like a bit of hair on a man (as long as it's not on the back or shoulders) so it hasn't been an issue so far.

To be fair I dont like having hairy legs or armpits so I shave/wax for my own personal reasons, not to really please anyone else. When I first started going out with my b/f I shaved *every* time we met up, however since we've been together for so long and now live together I dont put those silly expectations on myself. Sometimes I'm complaining about my hairy legs if I've not shaved for a few days and he says he wouldnt have even noticed if I hadn't pointed it out. He did however say hairy armpits were a bit of a turn off for mem when I asked him about this issue!
If a guy really cares about you and you've been going out more than 6 months or so he really shouldnt be making such a big deal if you dont shave every day! A friend of mine doesn't shave her legs at all and the hair is really fine and blonde so you barely notice it and it's not got that horribly stubbly feeling and none of her boyfriends have ever cared!:p:

Hair on girls literally makes me feel sick. I'm sure that's a product of social conditioning, but that's the way it is. I guess it's similar to if a guy decided he didn't want to wear deodorant or shower anymore, and came home to you after a game of rugby. You wouldn't find him half as attractive I think.

But tbf, I hate body hair in general, and remove as much of my own as is socially acceptable.

I really don't care. I don't think I would freak out if my hypothetical girlfriend hadn't bothered with her legs/pits for a couple of days or so. I suppose there comes a point when there is too much feminine hair, to the point that it looks manly. I suppose we're all hypocrites really, but to be honest with you, I'd be far too alarmed if a girl had no hair on her body - i.e. arm hair, pubic hair....you catch my drift. I think my stance on the bush is well known.

haha, maybe i should post as anonymous.
Perhaps this isn't the right place for the topic, but remembering Shazia Mirza's documentary on female body hair a few months ago, '**** off, i'm a hairy woman' or whatever it was called, the subject somehow came up in conversation between myself and my boyfriend(of three years).
Interestingly, he claimed he'd dump me if i did the same as Mirza, and abandoned shaving my legs for good. Female body hair is disgusting and a massive turn off to him. I imagine a lot of men feel the same. But should they? I don't particularly plan to stop shaving my legs for sex or whatever(though i am very very lazy) but i find it fairly insulting that men appear to expect such a high level of grooming from us girls.
Thoughts?
It's just more of a manly thing to be hairy.

Why girls dont understand men finding it disgusting: we dont look that different without it!
Womens hair is quite fine anyway and not that noticable. Luckily my boyfriend doesnt care if I dont shave to the thigh everyday lol (although it is nicer and does feel sexier to do so, its not that big a deal :s)

Im bi and wouldnt mind a little hair personally, theres a limit but I wouldnt dump/ not be attracted to someone because they didnt shave their legs everyday, I mean come on how much do you focus on legs when getting frisky?! There are far better parts lol, if you dont like it look at something you do like.

Are you sure you want a partner like this? He's been with you for three tears and yet he'd dump you for the most trivial reason?

Anyway... I actually find it arousing, as long as the girl in question is attractive to begin with. Hairy legs in particular would turn me on, but I suspect I'm in an extremely small minority.

I think the dislike of hairy women has a lot to do with homophobia. Hairiness is very much a masculine trait, and I reckon men would find an attractive hairy woman to be a threat to their sexuality, at least on a subconscious level. Personally, I'm comfortable with myself (irony of anonymity noted), so I say bring it on. The concept of a hairless female as the norm only came about recently anyway. How do you think women used to be back in the Stone Age? Beauty is subjective.
