    I've shaved my balls for years and just started trimming my patch but i have to draw the line at men shaving their armpits! We need something to keep us male!

    Women - yeah - I understand the whole "totally" hairless thing (and ENJOY IT!) but even if a guy shaves his balls and trims the patch - just seems to me a GUY should have hairy pits??

    ...DISCUSS!:smile:...

    Keep what you like, and get rid of what you don't! (Unless that money could be better spent on charity). My armpit hairs are like the ornaments on a Christmas tree, so I'm keeping them! :biggrin1:

    I don't know...why do women shave their armpits, and why do many of them feel compelled to shave the pubes? I think this could start an interesting conversation in the Women's Issues section.

    i stay natural, too much upkeep for a dude. I get and love the chicks being bald, but a dude needs to have his fur. If i had a hairy back though that would be gone immediately! butt hair i dont care. My exwife loved me hairy and natural and so did the girl i dated after that. So i figure who cares if they dont like it.

    About three years ago, I had an operation to remove a cyst from my left pit and the nurse shaved it beforehand. It felt really weird. The one thing I did notice was that by the end of the day, the shaved one smelt less than the hairy one.
    I've grown the hair back, but I trim it now and again to keep it looking tidy.

    I keep mine trimmed, so that when I apply deoderant/anti perpirant it actualy goes on the skin and not a bunch of hair

    Shaved pits are for competitive bodybuilders and swimmers. Men should be natural, except for back hair. That I cannot abide.

    I trim it, occasionally shave it all off, I just don't like how natural my underarm hair is, so keep it down.

    I trim my pit hair and have considered shaving it all off, I think it is pretty hot seeing a dude w/o pit hair are neatly trimmed pits!

    Back hair is uncomfortable. The hairs get caught in the fabric of my shirts and then pull when I move. My friend has been trimming my back with clippers for 20 years. After she finishes, I trim the hair on my underarms. I'm very active and don't like to smell. Even if you're really hygienic, keeping the underarm hair short helps to control body odor. I don't really care how it look; I don't like to stink.

    good question - I don't think pit hair is a turnoff even on a woman but they did that a LONG time before trimming the bush came into vogue. Maybe it's visibility? You're more likely to see someones pits (tanktops, swimming, etc) before you get to see their "other" parts. That might explain it a bit....

    Love pit hair, don't mind hair on another guy. In fact, I think it's a great turn on. For some reason guys smell better to me when they have a bit of hair. I've only once had a guy with what I considered 'too much' crotch hair; it was a twink that for some reason had mutant pubes which made him look like he had a bad afro around his cock and balls...made me giggle. Other than that, fur on a man is fine by me!

    I go back-and-forth with my own grooming, though. I usually end up either going completely waxed for speed and slipperiness (including the crack but not pits and bush) or trim everything low and fuzzy with my shaver. I have yet to get a complaint.

    But the pit hair has to stay. I don't have that much anyway but the only time I did shave it was when I was bodybuilding and then only before comp's. Certainly was NOT fun when it grew back.

    I trim my pubes and have been shaving my pits for a few years. I certainly feel cleaner bare and my g/f likes it

    I am not down with hair anywhere.. I think it's nasty. If that makes me less masculine, then so be it!!!

    I don't care for trimmed anything on a man but I must admit I do trim my pubes because it makes some of my leather accessories much easier to put on and take off. When I'm flaccid my penis gets lost in the bush otherwise.
