odd question: shaved

It seems that every female I know shaves down there.Most men I know do to. The men thing might be a military thing but I dont know.Have I just stumbled on a concentration of shavers or is that the new norm.

  • Shaving down there is not new. I've been doing it for years. Some people do it for hygiene some do it for style. Just don't so it with a dull razor.

  • I believe many people are choosing to shave. It's fairly common among women, but a bit less with men. Honestly, it's up to personal preference. If you'd rather not, don't feel as if it's necessary. I know a lot of people that just keep it trimmed.

  • i do think that shaving has become a new norm (atleast for women).....i shave, but sometimes i let it grow a bit and just trim....i personally think its due to the greater public acceptance of porn....a lot of porn stars are shaven and i think thats why its so it feels nice to be all smooth down there and i think it makes the sensations better during sex.....but it is a bitch to keep up

  • my husband and i both keep the area "tidy" with an occassional trim/shave. but to shave it completely? no thanks. i used to do that when i was younger and it was totally uncomfy once it grew back. and the hair grew back almost immediately so you either had to reshave and deal with irritation or let it go and deal with itching and it looking funny.

  • I did when I used to wear a bathing suit. I didn't want any movements I made show hair.

  • I do it for hygiene plus I am kind of chubby down there and so i shave to make it smaller/ sleeker

  • I have shaved down there for years and it just makes me feel cleaner.If you do it once its hard not to keep it cause you get use to it...
