Then don't.


Morloth Fri 15-Jul-11 05:32:18

So don't?

I never have, nothing bad will happen, I promise.

ZacharyQuack Fri 15-Jul-11 05:34:23

Just shave one side and see which you prefer.

no YANBU! If you don't want to, then don't.

I know some people like it, the look or the feel or both, but it gives me the creeps.

I do shave my pits and my lower legs, but pits are for smell reasons and legs are because the hair goes dark and curly round my ankles if I don't (otherwise I wouldn't).

Yanbu. It's your fanny and you can do what you like with it grin

I agree with Morloth, your house won't fall down if you don't.

spookshowangel Fri 15-Jul-11 08:20:04

Do you really have to run the minutiae of your bathroom habits by a public forum?

The rest of the world doesn't care how you groom your under carriage
Do what ever suits you best.

Who cares what you do down there? confused

catinthehat2 Fri 15-Jul-11 08:28:13

You have permission since you seem to need it

In future, remember you don't need to ask for permission to do this sort of stuff

Numberfour Fri 15-Jul-11 08:30:40

Catinthehat, don't be daft. Of course OP needs to ask permission - what planet are you on?

AnyFucker Fri 15-Jul-11 08:31:12

what you asking us for ? confused

I borrowed stole & hid DH's old beard trimmer. Much quicker than scissors and everything is nice and neat. 
He was a bit hmm about it, but he got a nicer trimmer, and I got a nice trim and he can use see the benefits IYSWIM blush

"Just shave one side and see which you prefer."
That did make me laugh!

Can I just show my age and ask when this level of de-fuzzing began? I'm sure when I was younger and cared about my appearance female shaving involved underarms and below the knees only, maybe a bikini wax just before your holiday (because you were actually going to be wearing a tiny bikini).

TheFeministsWife Fri 15-Jul-11 12:29:06

Nope be as hairy as you like! Just for a bit of TMI..... I used Immac (that's how long ago it was) down there once just to do my bikini line. I got a bit slap happy with the cream and ended up with no hair! The fucking thing looked a goddam raw chicken fillet, it was bloody horrible! And hurt and itched like hell when it grew back. Since then I've always gone for the full bush look. winkgrinblushshock

LeftIt, I think it's getting worse and blame the pornification of culture generally. I've been monogamously with DP for over ten years and often wonder, if I were (God forbid) back in the dating game, do men now expect less body hair than ten years ago?

ElectricSoftParade Fri 15-Jul-11 13:31:16

LadyClarice I think you are right re: pornification of culture. I am a woman of a certain age (42) and really cannot remember shaving anything other than pits and lower legs as a younger woman. If going on holiday or swimming possibly a small area shaved.

Like TFW I too have had an unfortunate experience with Immac. These experiences change you as a woman and you do not forget grin

LadyClariceCannockMonty Fri 15-Jul-11 13:37:32

I flirted with Immac as a teenager but the smell was vile. Presumably it's better now though.

I'm 36. I do worry about the hair situation and what is 'required' these days. To this day I haven't had a bikini wax or shave. I am a hypocrite about this issue though; I stand against getting rid of pubic hair, but I don't want mine to show in the pool/at the beach, so rather than getting rid of it I wear shorts rather than a cozzie or bikini bottoms so it just doesn't show. Solves a problem but it's not exactly standing up for the natural woman, is it? grin

As I've aged, my downstairs area has got out of hand but I simply cannot be bothered to tackle it, save a quick tidy for holidays' sake.

That I've had threatening letters fom the Forestry Commision has thus far not swayed me grin

I trim but hate the plucked chicken look so no, will never shave or wax it all off although I do have a bikini wax for the overflow from the triangle area!
