    Women, Do You Shave Your Body Hair?

    Considering all the body hair talk and men's preferences, we should discuss women's preferences and habits separately. So here it is, the poll about body hair. Choose what applies.

    I remove my body hair, but not 100% of it.
    Usually I remove it from my underarms and legs because it feels smoother and more comfortable.
    The hair on my arms I don't remove. It's light, soft and scarce anyway, so it's not noticeable and it doesn't bother me.
    I remove the hair from the bikini line if I'm going to wear a swimsuit.
    That's about it.

    My GF shaves all over except the arms. She's blond so you wouldn't notice it on the arms but the rest is shaved. Smooth is always better.

    I shave the body hair like Blod og Jord does, mainly the armpit and leg hair, that's what always goes, the rest it depends. I've not much body hair and it's blond, so I'm considering myself lucky compared to other women like some who are very brunette and have to shave or wax their "mustache".

    I remove all body hair that's visible. The hairs on my arms are blond and very sparsely so that I leave.

    I wax everywhere every 6 weeks apart from my arm hair because it's not visible.
    I mean everywhere excluding my head, there is only so much pain I can take.
    I admire women who don't shave/wax though, I'm far to naive not to (and it's become to be what I'm comfortable with), I think women that don't remove their body hair are sticking 2 fingers up to the 'norm' which I think is v. good.

    I shave my armpits and I wax my legs.
    Other areas only when the occasion calls for it (ahem).

    If you want to stick two fingers to the mainstream people then the question of shaving body hairs or not is quite a bad solution because almost no one can see your "statement" besides you and your partner and maybe your best friends. No, the main reasons for not shaving anymore is that I follow a natural approach (naturalism over artificiality) and that I don´t support the whole trivial business which imposes burdens and stress on women in order to make them look like naive and childlike erotic models.

    Honestly, it knows no borders: Tune up your hairs with industry products, rub expensive cremes with exotic ingredients you´ve never heard about onto your skin, wear unpronounceable make-up produced in chemical laboratories and fight the body hairs nature gave you in a merciless way by irritating your skin with razor blades, epilators or hot wax over and over again! It´s sick to the bottom. As I´ve already said some time ago, there´s a process of denaturalization going on and it creates victims in a constant row.

    Women are told they act unsanitary if they don´t shave which is a blatant lie because cleanliness has nothing to do with it. And the trend becomes more extreme as we speak: Legs, armpits, pupic area and now the arms! The arms!
    I can´t even visualize how someone sits there and shaves her tiny hairs on the forearms. And what´s the next level? The complete eyebrows, the hairs on the eye lid? Do we want to look like Whoopy Goldberg?

    I think a society which treats natural hairs as "sick" and "troublesome" is sick by itself. And I regret that I was a victim of this adverse trend earlier in my life and how I stressed myself to meet the expecations of the norm. I could have used the time wasted in the bathroom more meaningful. Furthermore, my skin was addicted to body lotions for some time: When I didn´t applied the lotion, my skin would become dry and fragile. It took me months to wean my skin from this industrial garbage. Now my skin is soft and healthy and I don´t use any lotion. The bodycare business is created to produce addicts.

    Yes I see what you mean, I do see how it could look 'dodgy' like that but I think if the woman has an womanly body it looks fine. Although, I do think it's also a kind of fashion statement (even though its covered up) just like how being v. skinny was (which taken too far looks horrible, but some women are naturally thin, and whatever shape looks lovely unless its the 2 extremes)

    Honestly, it knows no borders: Tune up your hairs with industry products, rub expensive cremes with exotic ingredients you´ve never heard about onto your skin, wear unpronounceable make-up produced in chemical laboratories and fight the body hairs nature gave you in a merciless way by irritating your skin with razor blades, epilators or hot wax over and over again!

    I think that most of that is obviously used for money making reasons on behalf of the companies in question. For example, there is a lot more pressure for women to look younger now, so they invest £100's into anti-wrinkle creams and such which usually do nothing if they're not coupled with a healthy lifestyle.

    Women are told they act unsanitary if they don´t shave which is a blatant lie because cleanliness has nothing to do with it. And the trend becomes more extreme as we speak: Legs, armpits pupic area and now the arms! The arms!

    I guess that is because what is indoctrinated into young women via models and fashion. Also by some extent by what a lot of males find preferable (for example, whatever porn stars choose to do with their lady gardens, I know not all of them prefer it that way, I'm just speaking from the guys I know).
    I have heard of a lot of people getting rid of their eyebrows, and tattooing them on.
    For example this very butch and attractive man:

    I think a society which treats natural hairs as "sick" and "troublesome" is sick. And I regret that I was a victim of this adverse trend earlier in my life and how I stressed myself to meet the expecations of the norm. I could have used the time wasted in the bathroom more meaningful.
    I personally feel more comfortable waxing my body (minus arms and stomach, and er, back or bottom). However, I think whatever women choose to do with their body hair should be up to them.
