Guys Should Shave (Or Trim) Their Armpits Too
Men, I like ya. Guys are awesome as friends for the most part, not being as catty as most of the members of my gender. I love how you apparently feel more free to really be yourselves. I love how guys want to fix problems and not just be a passive listener. I even love the “earthy” noises they make. (I have noticed some Adonis looking ones that are insecure jerks who are unable to put up with neurotically infatuated fatties, but I digress.)
But you sweeties smell at times–and it’s not necessarily a bad smell, just overwhelmingly strong and primal. It’s not your fault. It’s fault of those powerful hormones that flow through your veins–you know what one I’m talking about. It’s the one that makes men feel invulnerible. (At least until guys hit the big 4-0.) And I’ve also noticed (noticing quirks is something that I do a lot) that there is often…say we say, a jungle under your arms. A jungle that makes me crinkle my nose and want to take a flamethrower to it.
I don’t know why it bothers me it just does. Maybe it’s because of the double standard: guys can get away with arm pit hair but a lady? She’d be accused of being “European” or worse: just plain dirty.
We ladies shave our pits for hygiene reasons; deodorant works much better on hairless skin. We shave, wax and put on creme to get rid as much body hair as possible, to be neat and clean, and to be considered attractive. Why shouldn’t guys at least tame the hair under there? If not for the ladies, at least to be more hygenic?
