Why should a woman remove her body hair at all costs?
A few years ago, my then-partner preferred to keep her legs natural, and that was just fine.
At the time, there was no Tumblr filled with pictures of proudly hairy women’s legs — and that's a shame, because it would have allowed me to let out a big sigh of relief.
The few times my boyfriends could see a (tiny) bit of hair starting to grow back, I heard what they thought. They never intended to be mean, but deep down there was still a reproach: I’d failed to maintain my femininity.
And when we say body hair, we don't mean just a furry chest, but all of it: backs, happy trails and even their Downtown Curly Browns. But I also couldn’t be with a guy who waxes it off …
guess I lose either way," says Shelby, 30."Many years ago I dated a man with a lot chest hair and it was one of the reasons I decided it was best to break things off.
If you're the type of guy who's been obsessing over your body hair, or lack there of, and what to do about it, here's your chance to get some ladies' insight on the matter before you do anything drastic. Limit your pubes, if you can, please."I once told a guy that he should do some trimming because the hair was sooo long you could hardly find anything.
For this week's "What Women Really Think Of…" we asked women what they think about men's body hair. He took that as a small penis joke and almost cried. Doesn't it catch on something when it's that long? " asks Danielle, 26."Because men have a penis, generally speaking, if their pubic hair gets too long, it sort of pops out on either side of the penis like Larry from The Three Stooges. I'll pass, thanks."I appreciate the fact that men tend to get hairier with age, but a hairy chest reminds me of my dad.
But not so long that I’d be completely embarrassed while waiting.
First of all, I had to learn how to make it disappear.
Choose a method: Is the epilator really worse than waxing?
We could show one another our hair without drama, study it, compare it.
This called a lot of things into question for me and cast body hair as an object worthy of rehabilitation.

Looking back, I even found those little hairs sprouting on her legs very cute. And she had better things to do, anyway: I’d rather have her spend the next two hours in my arms watching a movie than rush off to remove the slightest bit of excess body hair.
