    I personally don't find it attractive when men shave bits of themselves that aren't their face.

    So I'd say that they should leave it, only trim if it was at the point when they looked like they'd strapped a wombat to their underarms.

    Personally, I don't think that is normal for a guy to do that, but that's just my opinion.

    Armpit hair is pretty inconsequential so I don't see why you'd bother, I only have a small amount anyway.

    If they want to of course they should.

    Same goes for women.

    I had an ex who did, and I didn't even notice :dontknow:

    If they want to, I don't see why not.

    I don't see why not. It's more hygienic I would think. Less hair for the sweat to ferment in and I guess it would also be easier to wash under your arms.

    Personally I don't because I'm a lazy ****, however I won't condemn those that do :borat:

    Honestly that sounds nice as an idea, but I have serious body hair and my pubic hair would be like a jungle if I never trimmed it, and you wouldn't want an afro to pop out of your trousers if you were trying to impress a lady, would you? Perhaps I am just some rugged hairy beast of nature.

    To answer the question, I trim my armpit hair for the aforementioned reasons. I once shaved it but it felt strange and it itched quite badly, I would definitely not shave them again.

    I do - every few months. Stops from too much hair from forming and getting too sweaty, and smells much more pleasant if you DO get sweaty.

    However, to each his own.

    "Men" don't shave anything other than their face. If you want to be "metrosexual" go right ahead and pamper yourself like a girl. At that point you should probably remove your genitals too, because you're not really a man anymore.

    Why is it normal for women and not for men?

    I get the impression that when it pokes out from the arm in my t-shirt, it isn't a good look.

    I think society is obsessed with hair to the point of stupidity. It's just hair. Do whatever you want.

    Shaving it is a bit weird.

    Trimming however is good, you still have hair and you don't sweat too
