Let's not bring up that alarming past thread where some of our men members discussed their, ahem, regional shaving programs.
I'm still just a bit alarmed by that information, honestly.

Not even which one of them was wearing the dress and makeup? Ha was sort of swooning about men in ladies clothes and makeup rather recently...

I had this women and grooming thread in mind as I got off the bus today in the center of the posh retail district downtown. I noticed a tall well- dressed middle aged woman with really nice bone structure, and...you guessed it...enough curly grey hair about 2" long sprouting out of one side of her chin to make a Tomten's hairdo.

What is the purpose of this? I read that over half of women have bikini treatments of one sort or another. How many people get to view these? Whereas at least 150 people probably walked past this woman today while she stood on the street.

So maybe less is more; but this much less?

Ha

But isnt the viewing in this case a bit more critical? I mean, you can turn your head and stop looking at a little bit of whisker...

A little off the top and sides, but leave it long in the back...

Some light grooming seems prudent, but "the boys" don't like no razor...

Just read the Body Grooming thread.

All I'm gonna say is...hair belongs in some areas, not in others. YMMV.....

I don't know any guys in the 20's to early 30's age range that don't prefer a women to be shaved. Most women in that range won't even consider doing "personal favors" to a guy that's not at least significantly trimmed. Personally, all body hair is repulsive to me. If I see a guy with arm pit hair I gag let alone a woman. The less hair below the neck the better for everyone.

Sounds like somebody spent more time with Barbie and Ken than real people when they were young.

Just read the body grooming thread. I am in the 27-32 demographic, but never been with a guy who shaved. Maybe it's a big-city thing. Of course I've also been married for quite a few years so it may have changed.

I don't know about other women, but waxing any part of the body is PAINFUL for me. Shaving is OK but I only do it when absolutely necessary.

Maybe it's worth another poll -- do you prefer your partner shaved. But let's save it for the day the Dow hits 8000, and when we desperately need distraction.

I always thought you were a guy based on your avatar and picture....come to think of it since so many are anonymous on here I don't know who is a guy or girl.

But not dressing fancy is a positive for me. I liked a girl when I was younger that was very materialistic and it was such a turn off that girls that spend a fortune on clothes and purses and stuff like that can be a bad thing.


Ziggy

You are the PERFECT height for a guy. I'm a 6 footer and I can tell you it's a big myth that women love tall guys. My guy buddies that were 5-5 to 5-9 were chick magnets. My 6 foot buddies did much worse with girls. And also most shorter girls probably think you are 6 foot anyway.

Urchina

It's nice that you are honest about your height. It always seemed to me that if a girl is 6 foot she will say she is like 5-10 or something less than she really is. A remember a girl that we used to hang out with that was about 6-1 or 6-2 and the called her "the amazon chick" behind her back. If someone asked her her height she would say "I'm 5-10!"
