what is your "hair-do" -- down there???

I'm curious because I live in Europe and EVERYONE at my gym - young and old alike are totally groomed down there - like landing strips or bald..... I was wondering if this is the norm in America and other countries... I'm sure someone will ask why I am looking but its something you can't help when the ladies are all walking around naked!

Do not fret way too much concerning firing a specific means to start with. big photographers Experiment. Your design-- your 'voice'-- will certainly arise in time. And also it will certainly be extra genuine when it does.

I'm not into pain, so I'm el-natural down there, I do nothing except clean the bush daily, and don't ever plan to do anything, live in the US.

I get waxed completely, but I don't think that is the norm as its called a brazilian wax not an american wax. I think its gaining popularity.

All natural. Hubby likes pubic hair and prefers I don't shave or wax and I'm HAPPY not to have to deal with the pain or mess.

I shave it all off every few days. Every day causes a bit of irritation, so I go for about 2 times a week. It's very smooth and nice. My boyfriend likes it shaved.

I've tried the Brazillian. Worst 90 bucks I ever spent. Painful, and didnt even get all the hairs off!

American, get waxed, all except tiny little strip. I only do waxing on special occasions (big trips, etc.). Otherwise I just shave. Waxing totally sucks. It is SO INCREDIBLY PAINFUL!

I just shave my legs. Every once in awhile I go in a bit further. I get ingrown hairs easily, so don't do that area too often. Upsidedown riangle shape. USA

I change it up depending on my mood and if I am in a relationship at the time. If I'm with someone I keep it trimmed close to the skin and I shave my bikini line and the "underneath", which can get in the way during oral. But I am perfectly comfortable letting it "grow out" otherwise. I have gotten a bikini wax - not a Brazillian, they left a generous triangle - but it was still painful, awkward and I don't think it was worth the money because she didn't do a very good job... I had to go back and shave where she waxed. I will say that I have gotten my legs waxed plenty and I love not having to shave for almost 2 weeks!

Boy - Europe sure has changed.

I shave the bikinni line and periodically trim it very short, but I hate itchy stubble, so I keep some growth. Crew cut I guess you'd say - lol!

Experimented a little bit back in 2003-2004, but decided to stick with the natural state of affairs. I'm in NYC, and guys I've messed around with have been surprised - they say that's what they prefer (some say it's creepily childlike), but it's not like they're going to say otherwise at a moment like that.

I know more than a few guys who de-nude the boys of all hair. Unless they did it as a dare or for an triathlon (clothing changes, lycra, get the picture), the habitual shavers/waxers are complete exhibitionist FREAKS who think they're doing the women who worship them (in their minds, obviously) a more conducive environment for them to, uh, worship. Oh, and a few do it because they think it makes their package look bigger. I wish I didn't know this stuff.

Cool subject gals.
I love all looks - a change once in a while is nice though. Personally (and I am male) I shave my balls and around the area to keep it tidy for my other half as that is what she likes.
personally - what ever tickles your fancy is fine by me though.

And for the wife

My wife is getting to the point where she doesnt want to conform to everyday expectations - and good on her for that. She has gone alanatural for sometime now, but occassionally I get the chance to go to work with my clippers and tidy it up a bit for some fun.
She often leaves her leg hair over winter as she wears trousers etc and doesnt care to keep it off.

OP here

Thanks so much - I was interested to hear so many opinions on the matter - and its nice that there is not one standard trend going around - just personal taste - I decided to conform to the trend here though... I guess because I would totally stand out.... but that's just the tip of the iceberg.. there are SO many differences here than in an American gym - I'll name a few..... they serve beer, wine and champagne - in the gym, plus they had all-you-can-eat spaghetti night right there.. and I dont mean in the restaurant.. you can see people stuff their faces when you are working out - and the smell! ugh. Funny that it lasted only a couple months - now they just do cold stuff - but the nakedness in the funny thing... they are so into that - even have a pool where you have to be naked - a sign that says no clothes allowed! I haven't yet ventured into that "mixed" area - it took me a long enough time to walk around naked in the women's section! - even though the men that work there come into that part as well! takes getting used to for an "uptight" American living in Europe. thanks again for the reponses - it was very interesting for me.

I prefer a full bush on a woman.... it just looks much sexier! Don't mind getting the hair in my mouth either! :) But trimmed is nice too!

I shave my scrotum and penis shaft then trim the rest. I do have a small package (1.5" soft, 4.5" erect) and it does make it appear a tad bigger.

As for the gym, we do have a coed sauna. Also a woman used to work in cleaning the men's locker room but that came to an end several months ago.

Anyone know if Nair works down there? I'm male and saw some Nair for Men, one had the words Body Cream.

Monday, August 13, 2007, 11:57 AM

Add comment
Hair removal cream (such as Nair) works fine, but be sure to use a sensitive skin formula; the regular one will leave you red and sore (same goes for underarms)! Also, I find with hair removal cream it grows back almost as fast as if you'd shaved.

I'm 25 and live in the UK, and I use a combination of electric shaver and hair removal cream, or occasionally just shave the bikini area if I'm feeling lazy. Usually just leave a 'landing strip'. I've had a couple of bikini waxes (but never a Brazillian); it was pretty painful, but lasted a couple of weeks. I also trim my husband's hair every once in a while... I prefer his hair short and neat.

Nair irritates my legs, I would never think of putting it down there! Ugh!

I think going all-natural is gross for men and women. I shave completely, and my boyfried trims when i make him, because I can't stand the hair.

Are you using the Bikini Area formula?

I much prefer a woman with a bush and don't mind the hair!

Monday, August 13, 2007, 1:20 PM

Add comment
Nair is a bit tricky, as it seems to work best on light, thin hair, and the hair down there always seems pretty thick and coarse.

The few times I've tried Nair, in the allotted time, it does nothing - rinse off, and I'm just as hairy as before. Or, if I leave it on for a bit longer, the hair will break off (much like shaving; some hairs a bit better, some a bit worse), but the skin gets irritated.

I've only tried it on my legs, never the bikini area.

Before you decide to use it there, be sure to test it on your skin and leave it on the whole time, to be sure you won't have a bad reaction!!

ok, thanks for the tips..

btw, another method i've recently been using is using a dry double edge throw away razor with powder like Shower-to-Shower! I know, sounds really odd at first but it works!!

babyoil the gel form keeps away ingrown hairs and keeps you smooth. but you have to take a really hot shower and throw away the razor and it is messy as hell but its not painful and it works well

Hmm. American, 40, have been sticking with the inverted-triangle and a trim for a couple of years now. Was thinking of dying it pink for variety. Have no idea what my bf prefers -- I don't think he's mentioned it, but has tastes probably don't involve wild colors of hair dye.

34 married and have been trimming and shaving a landing strip since I was in my 20's. Coaxed my husband into doing some "manscaping" and now he loves having a clean shaft and scrotum. He just trims the area above - it was a little weird one time when he shaved it down too much.

An ex-boyfriend of mine shaved his completely one time - total turnoff! Felt like I was having sex with one of the Brady kids.

I went completely bald, just to try it, and my mother FREAKED (she saw like...ONE hair on the side and guessed)

She yelled that only the 'whores' do that, etc etc.

Rawr. Old fashioned woman. I'm 17 and should be allowed to do what I please, jeez.

On the other hand... it itches more than I appreciate. I think I'm going to stick to neat trims and inverted triangles.

I am bald right now but I do prefer to have a little bit of hair. I think since I am overweight when it is bald it just looks like another fat roll. LOL. I did dye it pink once before. You are supposed to bleach it first and then do the color so it turns out bright, but I was scared to bleach that area so I just did the color. Turned out pink though and it was fun. I was younger then so didn't mind showing it off when people asked. Also back then I used to do arrows pointing down, triangles, landing strips, little patches and once I did polka dots, that was hard!

I'm curious why do you want a landing strip? I enjoy seeing a woman with "it" hairy and don't mind getting it in my mouth either. However a landing strip is better than totally bald!

But I would guess you would do some trimming yourself before having it done.

Question...any maybe this has been covered, but I haven't been keeping up...what's the upkeep on the Brazilian? I mean, it has to grow out to a certain length to do it again, right? What do you do in the meantime?

I guess the bush just comes back of its own accord all at the same time. thats why the landing strip is nicer as it stilkl has a defined shape even between waxing/shaving.

I say let the bush come back! :-)

BTW, when a waxing is done, do you just lay there naked from the waist down like (Thursday, August 23, 2007, 10:13 AM) had asked?

Yes, you do . The uncomfortable part is opening your legs for them to get all of it. Also, they ask you to turn on your side so that they can reach and get the back area. ( If you're having a Brazilian).

my hubbie helps me cuz I don't want to cut one lip off. He likes it bald but I can't stand the itchyness. When he gets choked from hair then I know its time to do a trimmeroooo. Although I usually keep it trimmed except it seems the traditional landing strip.

he has a rather large package (6inch soft...9 hard) and I think it looks fuuny w/out hair. I LOVE my man hairy. He used to not be when he was in his teens. But he is 29 now & I like my man to look like a MAN. :-)

I am totally natural and can't imagine the pain (and itch) you all go through to get smooth. This is me and if my man didn't like it, it would just be too too bad for him. There are some things that are just asking too much and that's one of them.

On the other side of things, I LOVE hairy men. All over hair like chest, belly, back legs, arms, face. The hairier the better. Especially when there's a beard & mustache. Thick wavy head hair is VERY nice, but a lot of all over hairy men don't have much head hair. I'd rather have a hairy body & bald head than a thick head of hair and a bald body.

When I was a teen in the 70s I went on a walking tour of Europe with a group of friends. It was mid-June to mid-July and everybody was wearing skimpy summer attire. During the whole 4 weeks I didn't see one native European woman with shaved legs or underarms. They were all natural. So my girlfirends and I stopped shaving because what the hell, who was gonna care? It helped us a lot anyway because the water pressure wasn't the same and we'd often run out of shower long before we were done shaving. Dry shaving was painful and left lots of red, bumpy, itchy skin. So all summer we were happy and hairy. Now you say European women shave (or wax) bald all over?!

As I was getting my last brazilian, she was explaining to me that she had a client who came in after getting plastic surgery on her vag. area. Apparently, the client had a major accident while letting her drunk boyfriend wax her. He actually pulled off part of her labia!!!!!!! I almost died just hearing about it! Why in the world would you come back in to get waxed after having such a bad waxing experience??? And why in the world was I hearing about it as I was getting waxed?
The pain is so bad for me, I don't think that I'm going to do it again. I just love how it all feels over the next week.

If you're really nuts, like me, you get a laser hair removal package. Six treatments over about 2 years, and your hair is either eliminated, or (as in my case) reduced. Oh, and a landing strip is vertical. And as far as dying goes, eek. Be sure to read up on it and be careful. :)

You only have to let your hair grow back about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch. It is not stubbly the same way as when you shave, and less hair comes back.

I go regularly and it hurts less everytime because the hair releases easier, and the pain is worth it to me, though honestly my upper lip waxing hurts more.

I can not go back to natural because I have shaved since I was a teenager and the hair seems to have spread from the normal triangle through my bikini zones and onto my thigh.

My hubby got his first shave (1 side) when he had to have surgery.
It was weird for me to be on the other side of a curtain when someone else was shaving him (I could hear the clippers buzzing)

It was different on, but I thought it made him look a bit bald. We did trim the other side at the time, so that he wouldn't be lopsided, but it has since grown back.

Me, I'm all natural--don't have much body hair to begin with, and I'm much too shy to go to my gyno with a landing strip or a Brazilian! Plus, my hubby thinks that shaved women look like little girls and he does not care for that....

OH, and I don't mind his "man hair", but I can't stand a hairy back, so every so often I shave it smooth... :-)

No, didn't hurt at all! But I know, sounds like it would! A friend told me about the method. I figured if it was good enough for her sensitive parts, it was good enough for my scrotum and shaft. lol I had shaved other times before with the normal wet method so this was more of a maintenence thing. BTW, I don't go totally bald, it would look too boyish if I did! Plus I have other body hair. Not too much but some.

My state of affairs is as random as it gets. I'll keep it bare for a few weeks, and get bored with the texture, and let it grow in. Friend of mine laughingly calls the general state of shaving "a desert" or a "forest" or "a wooded glen" if it's in-between. Odd group of friends. I've had help, and have helped to get the hard to reach bits on others. Anyone ever have a waxing party before? A few of my larger group of friends had one (I didn't go) and most said they couldn't hack the pain.

I find unscented baby powder really helps avoid ingrown hairs. I agree with the previous poster who said every day is just too irritating.

Let your state of affairs be comfortable for you, and don't conform to any standard but your own, I say! Self expression, and comfort.

why are there so many silly topics like this on Pt when we should be talking about ways to eat healthy and trim fat?

OP here

As the original post states, it was a result of my experience at a gym - while working out and getting healthy. Grooming is also a part of health. This is a forum about health - physical as well as mental. If you don't like the topic, don't read it. That's the beauty of PT, we only need to read what interests us and will help us. I got a lot of good ideas from this thread, as I'm sure many others have, as well.

Here's to pubic hair...(or not)

Have to admit this has been one of my all time favorite threads. Even sent the link to a non PT friend. It spawned 3 funny conversations, one with my sister and niece, one with a much younger friend, one with my mom (in her 70's and she didn't know what a brazilianwas...but had one every time she gave birth because they did "braziians" for childbirth). It's all about body stuff and what's in fashion.... all good conversation. Thanks to this thread, I have had some great conversation and laughs across 3 generations.

Au naturel or triangle. If I was single I might be doing more maintenance in that department but I'm an old married gal (not old really but still).

what is the point of a stupid ass question like this???!!! it has nothing to do with supporting people in their weight loss and fitness journeys. you are just a bunch of juveniles getting off on the subtle sexiness of the question, making it a prurient interest instead of a healthful one. fuckin jerks!
