To be horrified at my pubes making an advance on my knees....

Didn't realise it happened with age.

I am in late 40s and my pubes are still neat.

Now the boobs........

Mine have been doing it since my early 30's OP.

I've just had a full leg and bikini wax ready for the summer as I had begun to look like I was wearing mohair tights!

I only get hair on my shins to my knees and get a neat pubic growth.

I hope it doesn't happen with age!

TheScreamingfrog Thu 09-May-13 15:35:30

Hmmm, am now even more disturbed. Maybe I am just getting hairier for no apparent reason. I am sure this has not happened to me before.

Normal - ignore the smug, tidily-pubed poster!

chocoluvva Thu 09-May-13 15:45:00

Oh - meant posters - didn't mean to single any one poster out. blush

I was over 60 before mine went south - but think it's really the bottom of my tummy that has dropped over it. confused.

TheScreamingfrog Thu 09-May-13 16:03:13

It's going to hurt if I get it waxed isn't it?

TheScreamingfrog Thu 09-May-13 16:05:37

And I should I worry about revealing all at the "salon". Have not been to these sorts of feminine places much. Am usually to be found having brows threaded to an audience of gawking teenagers in the shopping centre because its cheaper.

I was a bit nervous, having not shaved my legs since Valentines day, but she didn't seem ar all perturbed.

Stung a bit, but probably not as much as dh taking a strimmer to my legs would have, and yes he did offer! grin

I've always had pubes halfway down my thighs. I don't think it's an age thing, just hormones and those can bugger about.

This incidentally <hobby horse> is why I bloody hate those "I simply can't understand why anyone bothers with hair removal" threads. Walk a mile in my pubes, sister.

"It's going to hurt if I get it waxed isn't it?"

It doesn't hurt that much. I find it more of a mild discomfort.

Percephone Thu 09-May-13 16:19:40

Exactly MadBusLady. Those are the same people who would look at me in disgust if I turned up at the swimming pool with my yeti legs.

Ubermumsy Thu 09-May-13 16:26:14

I hear you madbuslady. I had pube-like hair on my inner thighs right from age 14 onwards - hated, HATED school swimming lessons.

phantomnamechanger Thu 09-May-13 16:27:15

my inner thighs can be like bloomin velcro at times,gradually creeping further, by the time I am 90 at least I'll have nice warm ankles!

Mine goes down the back of my thighs too. From my bum cheeks sad

Warm in the winter though! smile

Pancakeflipper Thu 09-May-13 16:28:46

My nipples look like they have very very long eye lashes.

What is going on with hair????

ouryve Thu 09-May-13 16:29:12

It's horrible, isn't it? Mine are now bald in the middle - I have an anti-landing-strip. They seem to have migrated to my thighs and belly.

Bobyan Thu 09-May-13 17:08:41

Anyone been lasered, I'm considering it...

TSSDNCOP Thu 09-May-13 19:33:14

It won't hurt. She can just hang you from the ceiling and swing your whole bottom half into the wax vat.

grin

<not helping>

I finally bit the bullet and went a salon. The woman was incredibly professional - I admited I'd never waxed and she didn't recoil in horror at my hairiness. Saying that get one of those waxes which are some sort of hot wax specially for 'sensitive areas'. It doesn't hurt that much. I went to a place where they used the same type of wax as they used on the legs. Blimey that smarted!

fritteringtwit Thu 09-May-13 20:16:31

I've looked like Chewbacca 'down there' since I was in my early 20s. The front of my thighs are OK but the insides and back are covered in pube like dark hairs. And now I find its starting to grow upwards towards my belly button angry

And I keep finding one or two sprouting out of my bloody chin! Horrific!

StuntGirl Thu 09-May-13 20:22:42

Oh god, WHAT. This is a thing? shock

I am never getting older. Find me a DeLorean.
