Same here. In fact, I can scrape and scrape at my pubes with a fresh razor and lots of shaving cream, til my skin is raw, and I just can NOT get a smooth feeling. There is always a stubbly feeling. I don't have coarse hair either so I dont get it.

I just don't shave. And I don't date people who prefer a shaved cunt. Problem solved.

DH's body hair is really fine and almost invisible on his arms and legs, and fortunately he is not hairy. He has no hair on his chest or back, and I am glad. I do not equate hairiness to being a "manly man." He trims down there, but he leaves enough so that it is not prickly, itchy, or an irritant for me.

I hate body hair on myself, so I get it all removed via I2PL. If I do not like something about myself, I reserve the right to change it. I hated the way it felt and looked, so I did something about it. It had nothing to do with the porn industry because I was and am not in to porn. I started shaving and waxing in my teen years. In my adult years, I moved towards electrolysis and now laser treatments. I just prefer smooth skin from the neck down, and it is not for the purpose of sex. Even if I was single, I would still do the same thing. I choose to include laser removal as part of the things I do that make me feel neat and put together like getting blow outs, eyebrow waxing, manicures, pedicures, microderm, etc. Those things are for my own comfort and personal maintenance.

It was interesting to read this thread. Do what makes you feel comfortable and to hell with the rest.

The issue with hair removal associated with Hygiene is just like the association of Circumcision with Hygiene: it is more psychological than having any concrete non-disputable basis in scientific reality.

Yes, shaving can help prevent many illnesses or conditions of the genitals, but so can WASHING and WEARING A CONDOM, the same goes for the foreskin that circumcision claims to "help".~

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'd rather get off my lazy bum and wash my body & avoid having sex with people without a test first rather than shave or cut off various parts of myself.

Here's an interesting fact: circumcision DOES NOT PREVENT STDs NOR HAS BEEN PROVEN TO "REDUCE" STDs (WITH UNDISPUTABLE EVIDENCE FOUND IN A PROPERLY CONDUCTED STUDY) <-THIS IS THE PART MISSING FROM SO-CALLED "STUDIES".~
The two things are not even comparable. I am strongly against elective circumcision without medical indication. The reason I find excess body hair (particularly pubic and underarm) unhygienic is because blood, vaginal discharge, fecal matter, sweat and other substances that leak out of one's pores cling to the hair creating a warm, damp swamp - an ideal ground for bacteria to breed. This is what makes one stink. That is proven scientifically. There is also no way to get your deodorant where it needs to be if you have hair in the way.

There's a relatively new invention you may not be aware of called BATHING, it's when you WASH your own body with various substances and water so you DON'T DIE OF DISEASE!

I can't speak for other people, but I like to bathe before it gets to the point where my hair is a breeding ground "swamp" for disease.~

Truth and in fact that is why we grow hair in these places, hair protects you, removing it i counter productive.

Thank you, reason at last!~ XD

You can HAVE AS MUCH HAIR AS YOU WANT, BUT PLEASE PLEASE if you get involved in things that could cause disease if not washed off: PLEASE WASH YOURSELF AND ESPECIALLY YOUR HAIR AT LEAST ONCE IN AWHILE!~ XD

This has been your daily hygiene advisory, nice day to you.~ ^_^

LMFAO! You don't say. (agreeing agreeing-just doing so while trying not to spit my food and drink all over my laptop)

I never said it is a breeding ground for disease, I said mentioned bacteria. Over time, days, weeks, perhaps, it could cause disease, but over a day (I like to assume people bathe daily at least), it is a breeding ground for bacteria.

Ok, let's assume a person bathes in the morning and then throughout the day they are busy working or being a SAHP. Throughout the day, they pee, they defecate, they sweat - all this clings to those hairs under their arms, between their legs and bacteria thrives, all day, until the evening when it is reasonable they'd find time for another wash. Believe me, by mid afternoon, early evening, they don't smell very nice at all.
