So I was just in the You Must Choose thread, and on the site there was a question about cutting armpit hair.

Now I have never cut, trimmed, shaved or anything under there. This got me thinking, should I be doing any armpit work, or is my underarm forest something that can be left untamed?

Just leave it alone. You'll thank yourself for not making your underarms itchier than normal.

I don't see how, my armpits don't smell bad at all. The secret isn't shaving or trimming... you just need to bathe on a regular basis.

...

profuse sweating is genetic, showering everyday (which I do) doesn't matter when it comes down to it.

shaving helps

Haha! Are you a dude? You don't shave your pits, and if anyone complains about it you punch them in the goddamn face! That's the man's way!

You're a homosexual. Real/straight men refuse to remove any body hair.

I cant believe people consider even doing it what happened to the real man?

I shave everywhere, makes you look a lot neater (also a little more gay) but girls don't like hairy guys, at all. I say that from personal experience from before I shaved anywhere, so if you actually get some action, I'd advise you buy a razor

You didn't mention THAT in the thread you just made...

i was about to start a thread on the same question before i searched and found this thread
for me i dont trim let alone shave
and ya i do think shaving ur armpits are somewhat feminine (polite way to say gay and ****ing sissy)
i saw a guy in some reality show shaving his armpits with an electric razor, and that sparked me to ask the same question
i was like, wtf! guys shave their armpits and its even shown on TV?!
this isnt right!!! or am i wrong!?
so from my pov, i think its ok so shave your armpits if you're homosexual or a woman
not ok if you're a straight guy

Every single celebrity currently has stubble all over their face.

Girls like men with hair, it tells them that you're not 15 and spend all your god damn time infront of the mirror.

Well I certainly think shaven or at least maintained armpits are more attractive than an underarm forest.

But if you think a female's attraction is less important than an outdated cliche of manliness, then you might as well lump yourself into the category of homosexual/woman anyway, because the ladies will be going after guys who don't reek. That's not to say all men should shave/trim their armpit hair, just the ones whose pits smell or are excessively hairy.

Well that's a first. No one ever does that.

On topic: Ever since I've been able to grow armpit hair (since middle of 6th grade), I've never cut it.

no i dont think female's attraction is less important. hell i love chicks
im just saying that straight men shouldnt shave like homosexual/women do
not that shaving is a completely bad thing

but ya i'll go with you on the maintaining part
if you do have excessive hair then ya a trim might be needed but not a shave

I trim it almost all the way. Same thing for the hair that grows a little lower... people here saying it's manly to leave it like a forest are either very young and still excited about their first few hairs, or they never got an opinion (or advice) from somebody of the opposite sex.

Also, I think it's part of a good personal hygiene, just like cutting your finger- and toenails and all that. Nothing gay about it.

im in my early twenties and all of my friends, guys, doesnt do anything with their armpit hairs as well as the ones down under
we all just take care of our facial hair

maybe culture plays a big role in this subject too
most asians dont trim their pubes
and most caucasians do
this is very significant in women
and somewhat in men too

asian men consider shaven pubes to be embarrassing AND shaven armpits
but i dont see that in the western world
i dunno, cause the only way i can see a naked caucasian guy is through porn, so it might not be accurate
no, im not gay, not there's anything wrong with it

just that different race might have different opinions on this hair thing

Not everyone likes the feel of all their body hair, those who are saying it's gay.

I shave my armpit hair because it annoys the shit out of me, simply.
#27
it's not manly to have like 4cm long armpit hair like mine if i let i grow.you just look like a ass

if you want HOT chicks shave it..if you think your a man or just are a virgine and want to stay one, let it grow
#28
i dont shave/trim it. not that it's particularly long anyway. simply because i dont want to. if any type of hair on my body is going to put a girl off, it's the massive ****ing mop on my head, and chances are if they can accept the mass of curly head hair, they won't expect me to have trimmed anywhere else... and anyway, unshaven is the norm round here.

I've been thinking about this too.
I think it's embarrassing to have them, but it would be too if someone said something about shaving them...

Just looked at your profile, and dude, you have some ****ing awesome hair.

ah yes... i forgot to consider that. i lived in china myself for 4 years and i'm well aware that shaving those parts there is not common at all. I had many korean friends from school and we sometimes talked about it. they told me that they think it's disgusting without hair down there (different story from armpits, i know)... i guess different perceptions of the topic based on culture do come into play here.
