    Never really understood it.

    I used to go along with the whole thing in my younger years (when I fretted endlessly about other people's opinions and was hideously insecure), but have now abandoned the ritual of shaving because I don't really see the point.

    Anyone got an answer?

    Because that's the way it works. Men have to have body hair, women can't, capiche? Only light arm hair is fine, I don't mind it personally. Legs, armpits etc. have to be shaved though.

    Maybe because having (excessive) body hair is associated with masculinity? It's like asking why a man with no body hair is unattractive.

    Usually because it looks 'manly'.

    You get loads of women with body hair in the south of France though.
