    Default Armpit Hair

    I was just curious what everyone's opinion on this was.

    Nobody appears overly concerned when they see a man with armpit hair but when it's a woman... everyone goes ape trout. Why should men be excluded from this? It's definitely a strange place to have a tuft of hair so why don't we all shave it off?

    In my opinion, some men definitely need to address this... the kind of men who look like they've got Bob Marley in a headlock.

    What do you think? Do you let it grow free or do you remove it at the first sign of stubble? This goes out to both men and women.

    I keep it trimmed pretty close. Its use is now defunct, but I just feel weird with it gone completely.

    Man-scaping? I trim up certain areas, because it can get kinda annoying.

    Amazingly, I don't have back hair. It's pretty much everywhere else.

    I've been begging Iceglow to let me wax his chest& belly.

    He won't let me.

    Dudes who manscape -everything- though are just weird. I knew a guy that did that.. He was like "Absolutely no hair anywhere except my legs." - which includes arm pits, chest/stomach, and the penal area. That was just going way too far, imo.

    I don't mind armpit hair on dudes.

    Yeah I trim it every now and then as I notice a difference in odour when I do. As Quin says, cutting too much or all off feels god damn weird.

    I haven't shaved my armpits since before the start of the beard growing competition. I probably will at some point, but don't see any compelling reason to at the moment, and I enjoy having one less thing to do in the shower. As a mammal, I also find soft hair is preferable to scrapey burny stubble. If guys prefer to shave/wax themselves, they are welcome to. Woo, body autonomy!

    I shave my armpits more than anywhere else because they get extra stinky otherwise. I shave my legs and other areas about twice a week, except when I'm on my period I don't shave anything until my period is over.

    I've never met a man who shaved his armpits to my knowledge. The only man-scaping I care about is chest and back. I am not a fan of chest or back hair. Chest hair is okay if it isn't like a chest afro, but I prefer smooth chests.

    I've been in serious relationships with 3 men and they all seem to care about one kind of shaving on a woman over the others. I had one who didn't care about leg hair too much but armpit hair was a huge deal, and I had another who didn't care about armpit hair but cared about leg hair a lot.

    How are guys even supposed to reach to shave their back? That seems ridiculous, and especially so to get rid of something you can't even see in the first place.

    I'm fortunate to have no chest or back hair, little armpit hair and I only have to shave my face about once a week.

    And to think in school I used to be jealous of those with facial hair...

    Thats how I am. Or was, I guess. From above the knees up was shaved. Upper legs, groin, stomach, chest, and armpits all void of hair. I like the smoothness of it. But a couple of weeks ago I decided to stop shaving anything except my face. The hardest part of not shaving is the nipple hair. Oh god how I hate nipple hair.

    'Cause we're pretty much brought up on the premise that body hair looks natural on a guy but unnatural on a woman so people freak out when they have it but no one bats an eyelash when it's on a guy.

    I don't shave my armpits, and thankfully I don't have that much excess hair under there anyway. Only place I really shave is my face, and that's enough of a hassle. I'm not too crazy about the idea of having to shave other parts of my body and I refuse to shave this face until it warms up. The weather here in Kansas City is too damn low!

    French girls are the same as French guys, so naturally yes.

    You guys don't know suffering until you have had a gigantic mole in your armpit which makes shaving the biggest hassle in the entire world.

    I'm very sensitive to shaving in one area so I developed a big blister there and now I have to shave over and around the blister and that's not pleasant.

    Being an actual unapologetic heterosexual male my armpit hairs have remained untouched by blade.

    On women I prefer waxed in most places but if not it's not a clincher. We're all human, hairs happen.
