RE: Why do women try to be pretty?
"But a beard will keep growing, pubes won't."

Huh? Then why have I had to keep shaving my junk over and over again for the last twenty years? My wife's too? And what does the speed at which something grows have to do with what a person looks like shaved?

RE: Why do women try to be pretty?
It doesn't. I've never encountered pubes that kept growing past a certain length, as in, would grow down your leg and stick out near your shoes, maybe yours are special. (On the other hand, untrimmed beards could make you like Amish or like ZZ Top.) Mine reach a certain length and do not get longer, just like most people's arm and leg hair.

If you shave and wish it to remain shaved, you'd have to keep shaving. I thought that went without saying.

My point was it doesn't matter what a person looks like shaved or not shaved, the whole shaving thing is cultural and based on trends at the time. That's why it was ok for Nena to have hairy pits 30 years ago, but people think it's weird now. Perhaps there will be a day when the trend goes the other way, and people will think it weird that people these days shaved.

It's just another form of body modification, shaving. Just like dying your hair, piercing your ears, bisecting your penis, whatever. I just think people should be able to do what they want without people freaking out.

LOL.... I'm sorry, I misunderstood what you meant. I thought you were saying that pubic hair doesn't grow back when shaved. Sometimes I'm a bit thick.

I agree with you about the cultural influence, although I've been shaving for a lot longer than it's been popular for men. Maybe the videos I've been posting online got the trend started???

There is nothing inherently attractive or unattractive, it depends on what people are used to seeing. It just sort of amazes me that pube shaving has apparently become the norm these days. I once thought it might be a thing to try to present themselves as more female (smooth, hairless, feminine) but then men started doing it too, so I think it's just the influence of porn and the internet that's cause this shift.

Shaving pubic hair, more specifically for guys, really doesn't have much to do with it being attractive, or the appearance of it; and people really don't do it because it's normal or somehow in style. It's really just more that it's available and accepted. Porn and the internet really didn't do anything beyond getting more people, more familiar with it, and accepting of it, especially for sex.

I would have to say that I do see females as shaving, parts of their bodies in general, more so than pubic hair specifically, to appear more feminine, soft, smooth, etc., as they do with pretty much anything else appearance wise for attractiveness, such as with clothing or make-up.

People are all over the place with what they find attractive or comfortable for themselves and/or on other people, so with hair and shaving, just in general, I think it all really comes down to what people are comfortable with and prefer, for themselves and/or their partner(s). The style, fashion, attractiveness, of it, is the last thing, or should be the last thing, people worry about.
