    Well, sorry fella, the Roman bit isn't true. There isn't enough Archeological evidence to support it being a widespreaqd occurrence and is limited to a fee special cases. For Egyptians, we only know of a couple of prostitues who did this.

    With regards to Islam, it's not actually know when specifically shaving pubic hair started. Even if religous texts advised it, that wouldn't necessarily mean it was widespread.

    Where did you get your answers from?
    No one said it was 'widespread' because Roman culture didn't suddenly dominate the local culture but there is plenty of evidence to suggest that it did happen to some extent and 'lack of evidence' does not totally rule out the possibility that it didn't happen.

    What sources do you have regarding Islam? I only have Islamonline.net.

    My boyfriend says he doesn't mind so long as I don't resemble a werewolf. But he knows that I'd never let myself get lax about shaving, so if I did he'd probably freak out because it'd mean there was something very wrong with me.

    Cheers! Taking care of the nether regions with said stuff would prevent that, of course. I'm not too sure about the sweat though. The main purpose of hair, like in the armpits is to prevent sweating. If it was a choice between bush or sweaty bollards, I know which one I would choose. Aesthetically speaking anyway, trimming is the go-between option and looks good 99% of the time. I can't stand no hair though. Just don't like it.
    Is there any reason in particular? Some people just say it to avoid the word "paedo" being thrown at them. Not that I'm accusing you of that btw.
    Do you like the pubes made into shapes and stuff? This to all guys btw.
    I personally find that sickening.
    I prefer it all bare - even on guys. Man porn has distorted my perception of reality sooo badly. :rolleyes:

    Yeah she has to be extra hairy though, like a gorilla. With her hairy legs and my hairy chest we can rumble in the jungle.
    Sounds like something from Blind Date.

    Yep I like a fish and chips pattern shaved in!

    Tbh I'n not too fussy (as the rumours would suggest). Either brazilian, trimmed or all off is fine with me. As long as I wasn't going down I wouldn't even mind it a bit bushy :woo:

    There are certain things men and women do differently, and thats what makes them attractive. It's like saying, "Dude men have short hair, why can't women!". By short I mean shaved Natalie Portman style.

    The reactions from a similar thread to this in the Fashion and Beauty section suggest that male armpit hair is not gross at all.

    Not a yes or no answer, then :p:

    I do understand what you mean, though. I just think that sometimes guys forget that just because girls tend to wax/shave/get rid of it any way they can, they forget it was ever there to begin with and that it is just as natural on a woman as it is on a man.

    I personally think it looks a bit untidy on women and therefore, I wax, however I think if a girl chose not to, more power to her.

    It's all about following what society deems attractive. Sure guys are free to shave, and women are free to not shave, but people won't find it attractive.

    As for why its discusting, well one arguement could be that womens clothing reveals the armpits far more than male clothing. You could argue its discusting on men too just its less noticeable (personally I'd rather not have armpit hair in my face :p:)
