Do you shave your legs and underarms?

My dh has told me numerous times he wouldn't care if I didn't, and in fact, would LIKE it if I didn't! I'm finally going to try to stop! I just found out women didn't shave until around the turn of the twentieth century... do you? And would you stop if your partner said they didn't care?

  • Yes I shave and no mine doesn't care. I won't stop though because frankly, I don't shave for him. I shave for me.

  • My husband does not care. I have been completely shaved and completely au natural, he doesn't even notice either way.
    I shave my legs about once a month and armpits every few days, because my pits get funky if I don't shave.

  • I know women didn't always shave, but the difference between them never shaving and us stopping is that before you shave the hair, it tends to be soft and *generally* rather light in color. I would go nuts from the stubble as it grows in and then just seeing it would make me crazy. I broke my ankle 2 months ago, and when I got my cast off last week, it took me all of 5 minutes after I walked in the door to go shave that area b/c I just couldn't stand it. LOL If you want to stop, though, go for it! If you can stand it, more power to you!

  • I shave my underarms and legs. I tend to shave them more in the summer when I am wearing shorts and capris, in the winter I tend to not do it as often cause I have very dry skin and don't like scraping it with the razor. My husband has never said if he likes it or if he could care less.
