    I was just perusing the biggest turn offs in women thread, and noticed alot of guys mentioning hair on women (I'm not talking about hair on the head, just anywhere else).

    Personally I am not a hairy girl, I am very well groomed and consider de-fuzzing as just part of my daily routine. I don't question it really.

    But - I would just like to play devil's advocate and see why there is such a big thing about hairy women; where did this come from? Why has it happened, etc? Any women feel pressurised to de-fuzz, and would prefer not to?

    Opinions please!

    I hate being hairy anywhere. Apart from feeling cleaner and less furry, I feel a lot sexier when I've de-fuzzed. I suppose I just see it as the norm, but I prefer it, so I don't think I feel pressured into shaving.

    Men naturally have more hair than women, so it's seen as masculine.
    So less hair = less masculine = more feminine.

    Men are hairy, woman are the opposite of men. Ergo women are expected to be unhairy. It's not rocket science.

    I'm a girl and I actually really don't like having hair underarms or legs. It's just not... nice. Dunno why.


    However, I know a lot of girls who shave their whole arms and I can't be bothered with that, even though my arms are fairly hairy.

    It's a cultural thing. Watch porn, you'll see what I'm on about. Go to Italy, and you'll see lots of very hairy underarms :p:

    Physical traits don't often translate well onto the opposite sex, for example:

    It's manly to have bodily hair and stubble. The last thing guys want is to be talking to a girl who looks like his best mate.

    Boobs. Women have them, men shouldn't. Same with willies in the opposite way.

    Etc.

    ...why there is such a big thing about hairy women; where did this come from?
    It's clearly not appealing - and you know it.

    I can understand that, I'm just curious as to where it came from.

    Alot of men are saying 'men have hair so women shouldn't', but women naturally have hair. Therefore to get rid of it is going against nature. Why did women feel the need to do this (originally?)

    Difficult (if not impossible) to say exactly.

    Women also say men have hair so women shouldn't

    hmm...maybe a very hairy woman saw another woman parading around with almost no hair and thought **** that i'll shave it off and have less hair than that hoe! and so started a trend?

    Men who dislike women just because of a little hair need to grow up, female body hair is a lot different from male body hair; lesser, not coarse and overall less noticeable than the hair on the male body.

    Aside from shaving your armpits, legs and "down there" your body hair should be left alone

    Depends where the hair is at. I can easily cope with some hair on the public region. As long as it's not the Amazon rain forest then it doesn't really matter. Tons of girls in porn and glamour mags etc still have a little bit of pubes.

    What's revolting, though, is hairy legs and underarms. It's just ... I dunno ... makes me want to vomit. I don't care if it's natural. It's natural for me to have a massive beard, in which bits of food get caught in. Yet I know that would be disgusting, thus I shave. I've never heard of a single man in the world who actually likes hairy armpits or legs on women, despite the erroneous assumption someone said earlier that in Italian porn women have hairy armpits. They don't.

    i find it strange that we all try and deny the fact that what is natural is for women to have some body hair (albeit less than men) there are however some men with very little...no one asks them to get a chest hair wig or doubts their masculinity because of it.Maybe it has something to do with some dark haired women being hairier than fair haired men and issues arising there. I also find that generally its women who do the pressuring

    I don't shave my legs at all. But they have very light, thin hairs which aren't even noticeable.

    Win.
