Yeah, I meant to complete my sentence with ". . . seems to be teaching them that there is something wrong with having pubic hair, or that their bodies are unacceptable just as they are."
I have to say, I really dislike shaving but I'm guilty of kowtowing to popular trends. It's so much trouble, but I do it anyway, even though I have had some problems with ingrown hairs getting infected. I keep saying to myself that I will let my bush all grow in again and just trim it. But then I'll be getting ready for a date and not want to disappoint the guy and I shave it all off again (except for a little patch). Being overweight with a bit of a belly, I really think bare looks dumb on me, but this is what people expect nowadays.
I started this thread because after being monogamous for 12 years, when I started dating after we separated, I was quite shocked to discover that men were shaving too now. It still weirds me out. I love it when Lively lets his pubes grow. He gets super turned on when I take his balls in my mouth, and I don't care if they're hairy or not. As I said earlier, I love the fragrance of his body that the pubic hair holds, and his coloring is so nice, I find his sandy reddish-blonde pubic hair much more of a turn-on than the sight or feel of his balls completely clean-shaven.
