Am I the only one who dosent... (Warning, TMI) adult content

Ok I have seen alot of questions here lately about shaving pubic hair, most of the answers are the same, that they do shave and think its gross not to. Am I the only person who dosent do this? I mean dont get me wrong, on occasion I do it to make the hubs happy, or for summer (Swimsuit time) but other than that I usually just keep it trimmed up a bit so its not sticking out of my underwear. I know alot of people think its gross not to, but I keep that area clean, especially around that time of the month. I feel like I am the only person with a stitch of hair down there. It is just hard to up keep for me. It grows back sooo quick and shaving there every day, or every other day gives me razor burn no matter what kind of shave gel/razor I use, and when it starts to grow back a bit, it itches like crazy! And I dont want to be walking around scratching down there like a dude! lol. Is there anyone else who dosent shave down there, or am I the only one?

  • My husband likes it when I shave but he doesn't complain if I don't. I usually keep things trim and tidy when I wear a bathing suit and I don't let it get out of hand. I never shave completely and if my husband isn't home (deployed) I could care less about shaving. It's just hair and it's there for a reason.

  • Nope your not alone. Dh couldn't care less whether its shaved or not. A little trim is all I need. Once in awhile I'll shave it all off. And then I regret it every time because like you said it grows back fast and itches so much!

  • I'm with you. Trim above, shave below. I worry about guys who want a grown woman to look like a pre-pubescent girl.

  • I don't either. It is weird to me that people shave it all of intentionally. My skin is very sensitive and shaving gives me a horrible rash. I trim it nicely, but to shave it all off, no way.

  • I used to always shave, but I stopped when I had my baby. My SO cheated on me while I was pregnant, so therefore I'm a single mommy, my shower time is jump in and out as quickly as I can so my baby isn't alone for too long!

  • I trim in too. It bothers me when it's too long, but I keep it short enough to stay clean and not poke out my underwear(I though I only had that problem...lol). I shave my bikini line, but that's it. Hubs get's what he gets(and he doesnt' throw a fit!)
