Are women in Europe shaving their underarms yet?

Thanks for the "lumping us all together as idiots" there, Margo. It is reassuring to know that the Ozzians think so highly of us.


Setanta Laughing Trouble is - it's not uncommon! You are significantly better informed, more erudite, articulate, etc., than some.

Sometimes I think you may even know where Australia is, especially in relation to Austria! Razz

Hi Gonzita! More German speaking people! This really is a great international forum!

And I know where Australia is! That's the upsidedown country, right? My Austrialian colleague explained it all to me! Ha!

Removal of body hair is a cultural thing and no group should foist their cultural beliefs on another group. There is a reason why God had created hair on the body. Europeans have more body hair than other races,and I can understand the sometimes irrational obsession with hair removal. However Europeans must not try to recruit other races to this strange practice. I am black,and will never go with a female who has removed hair from a certain place. White women even shave their pubic hair. In the roll-call of thousands of British paedophiles there are no black men. This is absolutely baffling to many criminologists. The reason for this is obvious. I can understand the reasons for the removal of underarm hair, but come on-Pubic hair. The presence of this( pubic hair)more than any other feature, distinguishes a child from a woman.

Welcome Omega. That was quite a ridiculous load of crap you just plopped down there. I think it's still steaming.

A sprightly young lass from Eau Claire,
Decided to shave off some hair.
She chose the location
Of secret depilation
So as not to cause people to stare.

Europeans don't have more body hair than other races, because "the Europeans" are no race. And as white Americans came from Europe the difference can't be that tremendous.

By the way - even if God created my underarm hair, it may still be dispensable for me :wink: .

Yes

Have Americans stopped walking bowlegged, saying 'Dang' a lot and spitting tobacco juice?

A while ago I was surfing my way thru a wealth of obscure cable channels & came upon a chat show about ladies of a certain bent persuation. One of those taking part was of an industrial leaning & had her hair cut like a man and had drawn a moustache and sideburns on her face. she also wore a mans suit and tie. very strange

There was a programme on a while ago about a bearded American lady, long flowing beard and she was determined not to shave or wax or use any other methods to get rid of it Shocked

Ahhhhhh; The corporate boardrooms of America echo with cheers for this most 'patriotic' of threads.
All is well with the hands of corporate America firmly shoved down the pants (or should i say up the skirts) of the heros of the most 'totally' "IN" group - the consumer who buys shaving cream, razor blades, deodorants, deodorant soaps, dipilatory creams, perfumes, etc. etc; in the hope that no one will ever suspect that they are, were, or have ever been 'human'!

As an American male, I've gotten used to women without pit or leg hair. Its interesting to me that women shave their pits and men generally don't , because I think long, sweaty armpit hair is equally disgusting on either sex. I do shave my armpits as well, and love the clean feeling, and I think the armpit area is very sexy when shaved smooth, men and women both. Obviouly lots of people feel this way, or you wouldn't see so many armpit shots of women selling bathing suits, lingerie, etc, etc. Of course, you NEVER see male armpit shots, for the simple reason they are very unattractive unless shaved. Especially as men get older, the hair spreads out, so its not a "cute" little tuft, but rather a large area of rough, long, hair. I have found by shaving there I never need use deodorant, and never, ever smell. Since I wonder about the chemicals they put in deod, I think that's a good thing. Plus, I am a serious weight lifter, and find that the arm muscles look so nice without the armpit hair as a distraction..

I know I'm in the minority, but I think most men just don't want to feel obligated to do any grooming that might require work. Especially in America, we have polarised the difference between men and women to the extreem, where women are obsessedd with their bodies, their shaving, their fitness, etc.: the typical American male is supposed to be a TV sport watching slob, who drinks beer, shaves his face only for work, and showers are rarely as possible, selecting his clothing by sniffing the pits of a pile of clothing to see which might be acceptably clean. Obviously, such a creature is NOT going to shave his pits, legs or anyother body part. This is a very strongly ingrained architype.

Personally, I'm surprised the razor companies don't push men to shave more of their bodies, think of the number of blades they could sell. And, in counter action to the American male architype noted above, the "HOT" men in ads for underwear, sports wear, etc., are all in perfect shape with shaven bodies. Naturally, the typical American male thinks these men are "GAY". Naturally, because they are a threat--if women want their man smooth, he'll have to shave, and he doesn't want to take the effort. This is very threatening. I've also noticed that some women LOVE smooth men, others love chest and leg hair. I don't think anyone loves pit hair, and noone loves back hair, for some mystery reason.

Its all very strange.

I've been trying to grow my armpit hair into a fine tapestry of long curls, but it doesn't seem to be working. I was always for the Cousin It look, but I can't do it without a giant wig.
