So DH has just asked me to help him trim his armpit hairs... He can't do his right side and they're getting a bit too long for his liking grin aibu to have said no. Would you trim your dh's armpit hairs? I've told him I will act on the basis of the replies I get on here! Haha!

I'd tell mine to use hair clippers. I suppose if he was straight out of the shower I'd do it.

Yeah, I would if he asked, but I'd tell him not to do it for my benefit. He's done some over and above stuff for me over the years, so trimming an armpit wouldn't really bother me.

I would.

He can't do his right side?
Has he had a stroke?

Get him to use his beard trimmer, unless he is disabled, then help him.

I've done it before but he was straight out of the shower grin

Tangfastics Sat 30-Jul-16 23:06:23

I would.

I'm totally left cack handed so I understand where he is coming from!

Why wouldn't you? Assuming he's freshly showered, it's no weirder than trimming facial or head hair, surely?

Pestilence13610 - I just laughed out loud! smile love the matter of factness of your reply.
I did suggest using his trimmer..

LexieSinclair Sat 30-Jul-16 23:07:41

Yeah you should do it for him, I would.

justalittlelemondrizzle Sat 30-Jul-16 23:08:34

Ok thanks everyone. Mumsnet has spoken and I will stay true to my word

LexieSinclair Sat 30-Jul-16 23:08:52

I'd probably try and style them quite flamboyantly mind you.

BrandNewAndImproved Sat 30-Jul-16 23:09:24

Why wouldn't you?

I don't really see what the big deal is, my ex used to shave my legs for me if he was sat on the side of the bath chatting to me when I was bathing. It's only a bit of hair.

I would , I really can't see why anyone would say no .

When DH was doing a body building competition I had to fake tan between his arse cheeks. No wife should have to do that. Rules state it must be a specific brand of fake tan. Sun beds not allowed. I'm scarred for life.

Why not?

I have done my dh's, and his pubes. He's got good at it though and now does it himself.

He has clippers for this purpose. I used them on the dog once, but didn't tell him.

Paulat2112 Sat 30-Jul-16 23:13:56

I do my DH's. It's just hair. If i asked him to help me with something i couldn't do i would expect my DH to help.

MarkRuffaloCrumble Sat 30-Jul-16 23:16:50

I wouldn't because I like my DP hairy and wouldn't assist with removing any of it with the possible exception of his shoulders

Paulat2112 Sat 30-Jul-16 23:17:02

* iklboo * my dh once had pile cream stuff, but was a pessary so had to be inserted! He is also a bodybuilder so couldn't manage it and i had to do it for him!! I am also scarred.

VoldysGoneMouldy Sat 30-Jul-16 23:18:20

I would if he asked. Can't see why not.

justalittlelemondrizzle Sat 30-Jul-16 23:19:15

He's just told me he hates his chest hair and the sexy line of hair going down from his stomach. I've told him he is to under no circumstances remove either! No one wants a bald bodied man!

Hockeydude Sat 30-Jul-16 23:23:56

I'd help him with his armpit hair. Mean not to imo.

iklboo Sat 30-Jul-16 23:30:26

<hugs Paula>

19lottie82 Sat 30-Jul-16 23:31:22

YABU. He's your DH, if you can't do it, who can?

WorraLiberty Sat 30-Jul-16 23:36:11

I've always helped my DH trim his armpit hairs.

It's just hair confused

I've helped my 17yr old DS too.
