I shave my calves, underarms, toes, feet, and my arms too when they start getting unruly. :( I don't like to shave my upper leg. It takes too much time after I've done my calves and you can't really tell there's hair anyway. I trim/shave "down there" every few days. And I pluck my brows probably every two days. They used to be out of control after one day but I guess after so many years of plucking, the roots are starting to stop growing back. Maybe -- I don't know.

My dad thinks he's pretty macho, but when my mom plucked his eyebrows once, he cried (hahaha).

I have really thick, dark hair, especially in my pits. Even after I shave, it looks like I have stubble. It sucks. So my mom and I are going to start get hair removal treatments together when we have enough money.

I like hairy guys, if it suits them. A little facial hair is cute, though not as cute when smooching.

I feel lucky because I don't have armpit hair. Whee, no need to shave :D Same with my legs - I actually do have hair on those, though, it's just very light and lies flat. :)

I really don't have too much hair anywhere, so it's not important at all to shave my legs during the winter. (This is Michigan we're talking about here. A place where you're guaranteed 25"- 40" of accumulated snow between November through mid April) I pay close attention to all other areas under arm and give down there a good trim every couple of weeks. I do actually remember one year I shaved *everything* off with Nair depliatory.....(I'm positive that bottle probably says not to remove hair down there with it, but I'm terrified of using a razor.) And now that I think about it, I wasn't trying to impress anyone at the time, I just did it for the hell of it. It hurt really bad to say the least. Never again. As far as guys go, little to no hair is preferred, but to be fair too much hair disgusts me so I'd be shaving too.

My coiffeuse (I learned this word today, so I wanted to use it) puts a comb over my eyebrows and shaves them. It always freaks me out when she does it.

And if my back looked like the one in that pic, I would get laser removal done.

Interesting topic *laughs* I shave my legs, armpits and down below as often as required. I do so for myself mostly, I wear trousers most of the time so it wouldn't matter if I didn't, and I don't think Jonny even notices - but the feel of hair on my legs or anywhere really disturbs me greatly. My arm hair is almost blonde for some reason (I'm dark haired) so it isn't a problem and I don't have hair anywhere else.

I do trim my eyebrows but I don't have a clue what I'm doing so I just keep them tidy rather than shaping them.

As for men, facial hair is fine as long as it is tidy and suits the person. Body hair is fine also, though chest hair makes me squick a little for some reason. And down below I prefer trimmed, not shaved on a guy. Overall I like it if a guy trims his body hair and shaves his facial hair, but not the other way round!

I have not-hairy legs today. *pride*

Also, I wonder if most people who "trim" do it with the little scissors... I just drag my razor a couple cm above the skin as needed (or do the comb thing) and I can do a pretty neat job.

I'm still curious: does it not itch like you're being poked with little tiny pokey things when you trim "down there"?

If not, I wonder if that means I'm doing something wrong or just that I have stubborn hair.

Oh, no, it itches like you're being poked with little tiny pokey things all right. Especially when you have extremely coarse hair, as does yours truly. But in exchange for the suffering, one gets ... er ... someone help me out here, why do we put ourselves through this?

It gets easier the more you do it really. Especially if you shave in the shower.

I didn't know it was a social norm to shave down there though, I was pretty surprised at the number of people here who do it!

Oh yeah! Now I can relax.

Also: makes it look bigger.

Wingsrising and I aren't even talking about shaving, we're talking about trimming. I don't think shaving's a norm -- it is generally regarded as faintly naughty, a vanilla sort of naughtiness, like owning fluffy handcuffs.

Edit:

I suppose that does make the poking worth it.

The preceding sentence could have contained a crass, tasteless and, to my sensibility, extremely funny joke. Count yourselves lucky and/or unlucky.

That's gotta be the only real reason, which is stupid in itself...I don't need it to look bigger.

Keeps it slightly more attractive I'd suppose, like cutting your head hair or trimming a beard, keeps the hairs the same sort of length and makes it look neater...which would make it less unpleasant to be in that general area in whatever capacity.

since this is the body hair thread, I just gave my whole face a going over, chin, eyebrows and sideburns. I feel so neat...

Edit: also, no poking here.

or, you know, no suffering whatsoever and less period blood getting trapped in it? It's not a conforming thing, because who on earth sees my pubic hair?

Haha, yes I love the "makes it look bigger" thing. Means you automatically know the guy is nervous about his size xD Or at least makes you question...
