Au naturale = too much ass hair?!?

So I have a male friend who has a huuuuuge phobia of hair. I already knew this since I noticed that he shaves his arms. (Head hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes remain. I don't know if he shaves his legs or not.)

I've learned that his phobia spreads to women. In fact, he broke up with a girl because he was feeling her up and became convinced that she had ass hair.

Now. Am I incorrect to assume that unless it gets waxed, that all women have hair in that vicinity? Because I know I do. Lots of it. It's not the most socially beautiful thing ever, but it's the same thing as pubic hair. right? And correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think there's a way to get rid of it besides waxing. (I sure as hell am not putting a razor up there.)

So. I'm not questioning anyone's personal preference with their own hair, but has any chick gotten negative feedback about having hair there? I know I never have, but now I'm wondering if it's that big of a deal.

Thanks. =)

There's certainly nothing unusual or abnormal about it. A guy who would break up with a woman over it has got problems.

I have a very little bit of ass hair, but I'm generally hairless over my entire body. I've never had a guy even say anything, let alone complain. I try shaving it once, but that just didn't work, and my Nair doesn't reach well there. So I just don't bother.

I'd assume this guy is the exception, rather than the rule.

I did from one boyfriend. He was just a jerk. He wasn't bothered by it, but he talked about it. Even though I know it's not abnormal, it was a sensitive subject and he was only talking about it and making fun of it to be a jerk. Not to be like "but I love it!"

Some boys are just mean.

Humans have hair follicles (and theoretically hair) everywhere but their eye lids, their lips, the palms of their hands, and the bottoms of their feet. Whether or not the hair is colored is a different story entirely.

I've got hair on me bum. Not that I think there is anything wrong with it, but whenever my boyfriend trims my pubic hair, he does that as well. Beard trimmers are awesome. It is not a one person operation though. The only time my man has said anything about it is if he notices that it's time for a trim, or if I ask him if I need trimming. It's not that big of a deal. Anyone that makes a big deal out of it probably has other related issues (or watches too much porn :P)

I have a very very small amount of ass hair. I'm not generally a very hairy person (and usually take a pass on shaving), and my (one and only) partner doesn't mind at all, and, having never said anything about my ass hair, I assume it's a non-issue.

I agree with you, waxing would probably be the best way to get it off. I can't imagine taking a razor to my ass. Ouch! I'm fairly certain I'd nick myself a few times, and that's not a pleasant thought at all.

I generally feel like people who are going to make appearance demands like that on others should be willing to meet them themselves. Any boy not willing to have his own ass hair waxed off (or not brave enough to use a razor) shouldn't be asking that of anyone else. I assume you haven't take a look at this guy's ass, but I'd probably challenge him with that if he brings up any girl's ass hair again. :)

Well I have it and it bothers me so I get rid of it. But I don't think (unless you have massive amounts) that guys would care. Most guys are so excited to have sex that they aren't obsessed with the minor details of the person. And if they love you they really won't care.

Think about it, I don't like ass hair on them either but I deal. They can as well.

I have some hair there. I actually shave it - because I shave most of my cunt and it would look sort of odd if I left the ass hair. For me - it's easier to shave that area than my bikini line - as it is much less prone to razor bumps, even if it's a little harder to reach.

do you have any particular shaving method? like using shaving cream or lotion? just curious.
harpseal 24th-Jun-2004 06:33 am (UTC)
ACK Ass hair. I have it, I hate it, even thought it's normal. The ones that bother me the most are the ones that don't stay in the crack area, but 3 or 4 of them pop out on my cheeks. I Pluck them. My biggest Peeve is when I sit on them funny and they pull. OWW...

But yeah ass hair, pain in the ass, but normal.

I shave it occasionally, if Im gonna do some shaving down there anyways but usually I forget! It doesnt bother my boyfriend but he likes a lot of ass play so he gets excited when its shaved bc his tounge is down there but its no big deal. He prefers me to have hair down in my vulva region anyway as opposed to being shaven, besides places his face will be down in, so hair is no big deal. Ive never had a problem shaving there, I do it in the bathtub and its actually pretty easy. Granted Im not 100% precise in getting rid of every patch, just a few careful swipes. Any guy who is a jerk about that sort of thing is ridiculous, just remind him that your sure he has a ton more ass hair then you'll ever have. I know my boy does.

I have some hair in that area right where my legs meet, under my vagina... it's hard to describe exactly where. It's not all over my butt and up my arse crack but there is just a bit there which I have always figured to be normal. It just really pisses me off to get blood stuck all through it when I have my period.
wundermuffin 24th-Jun-2004 06:47 am (UTC)
i have some, but a normal amount. i don't get rid of any body hair except my armpits, and i pluck my eyebrows. my legs are hairy most of the time, and i've never seen a guy notice THAT even.

i think every guy i've ever gotten naked with has been so excited at the prospect of getting laid that he's not hung up on dumb things like body hair. i think your friend deserves to have women who he's about to do recoil in horror at all his possible imperfections.

I have a normal amount of hair and regularly and meticulously shave it. I shave the vulva so it just makes sense to shave this hair too. Also it is much cleaner for all hygene.
jennifer0246 24th-Jun-2004 03:35 pm (UTC)
personal preferences are wonderful, but i'd like to correct that shaving makes you cleaner. cleaning makes you cleaner. shaving makes you less hairy.
cailin_t 24th-Jun-2004 07:18 am (UTC)
wow, that's really interesting to me! i don't, but i'm a very non-hairy person in general. i only have to shave my legs every few weeks, etc. and the hair that grows is so sparse. my arms don't have any. it's kinda freaky, actually. :x
never1eighty 24th-Jun-2004 07:44 am (UTC)
What an ass. I'm pretty darn hairy (and my brother is hairless, go figure) and after being called monkey-girl at school, I shaved EVERYTHING for awhile. Gave up on that (shave only my armpits, legs occasionally). I've so got ass hair and I don't care. My husband mentioned how hairy I was down there once so I told him that I'd shave if he did. So he did. And when it started growing back, he realized why I never do it. Me: 1, Hubby: 0. *g*
