As soon as a major sports figure claims that he gets a 10% performance improvement (in whatever area) from bodygrooming or "extreme waxing", then all the amateur wannabes will be lining up to pay for it.

And people think that sweeping up the cranial hair clippings in a barber shop is a yucky job...

Surely you are not serious about pedophilia and/or porn comments?? Dancers and strippers and such have shaved and trimmed to bare, or almost bare, pubes for decades.

Re: BodyGrooming

We had three competitive HS swimmers. Every year my wife and I would host a pasta feed and shave off prior to the Sectional Championships.

The boys would get their heads shaved and yes most body hair would also be shaved although I didn't witness anything between the legs getting that treatment.

Same for the girls except they didn't let their heads get shaved....just regular barber clippers and shaving blades were used...It was a lot of fun...The upperclass(wo)men would do the honors on the youngsters....it was a kind of tribal bonding/passage ritual....some of my favorite memories of the kids HS years. Swimming is a great HS sport...

As punishment? [Whatever floats your boat...!* ]

Seriously, at the risk of being a party pooper, I think it's kind of a waste of time and $ for everyone, apart from the pain. Altared.. um... are you using strippers as an example somehow distinct from porn?* * *Maybe it's popular in porn because you can "see everything" more clearly in photos? And yes, I'm serious about the creepy pedophile vibe..*

Yuck:


Yum:* (I almost forgive him the Zardoz red diaper)





I see that often people've written "Merkin" on the board (to indicate average/slow Joe American..). Well, longer ago than "decades".. merkins were/are fake pubic hair wigs.. to fill out those scraggly areas. No more pubic combovers! (I see brewer and some others have picked up on its antique meaning).* Now that energy costs so much a merkin could keep you cozy and warm. OTOH, I guess waxing is part of that booming service economy... So, WAX AWAY, all who enjoy it!!

For those who want to be hairy, but are sadly lacking, there's:

I am late to this thread (as usual).

I love this board.* I learn so much--this time about the habits and preferences of the younger generation.*

Re: BodyGrooming

When I had open heart surgery in 2000, two young girls shaved me from the neck down!

But I was not having a good time that day.

Re: BodyGrooming

Oh, yeah, by admitting to performing body grooming, Saluki, I can see that you're not THAT conservative.

I never quite indicated exactly what grooming I participated in, did I?

Thats' ok, some of the hardest partying people I know are conservative politically and also some of the stuffiest people I know are liberals.

Early on in my teen years I learned not to look for girls on the right side of the fence
