If my husband wans me to shave or wax my pubic hair off...

Then shouldn't he have to shave his also? Isn't what he asks of me good for him too, or is there a double standard here?

  • I would say that is an even trade if your unhappy about his hair down there. My hubby likes it when I shave but I think it's totally weird when he does it lol Men should not be bare down there

  • There is a double standard, definitely.

  • Double standard most of the time... Cause yes, he should too, esp if he's asking you to, but I think most guys don't.

  • I wouldn't do it. Risk of ingrown hairs ( not fun) and the itching when it grows back. No thank you. But yes if he's going to make the request you have every right to demand the same from him. If he won't do neither should you.

  • I shave because I don't like body hair on me lol I mean in "those" places.... My SO isn't really a hairy man but I wouldn't want a bare man lol but I do like it trimmed... I don't want a big ole bush looking like a snake is coming out haha sorry bad joke

  • I make my husband shave. Well i tell him if he ever wants oral it better be shaved. I still don't give him oral but the hair goes away.

  • Oh BTW if you shave... Shave in the direction of your hair and then afterwards put deoterant on the area you shaved (Yes I'm serious) just make sure it isn't a gel... that will stop ingrown hairs lol its a trick I larned from dancing....
