I understand pubic waxing/shaving way more than I understand leg waxing/shaving.
18 *pages* of thread and NO ONE has gotten a pube stuck in their teeth? Really?! I'm pretty sparse so as long as I do a gentle hand-pull before "go time" everything is okay...but if I forget...my poor DH is up sputtering and picking at least a couple times and that really throws off my mojo.
I mean, there is a physical REFLEX when you get hair in your mouth. It's not a personal preference...it's hair...in the mouth...
That being said, I don't make DH shave, even though I might be thrilled if that happened because he's not going to think, "Oh hey I'm about to get some, better make sure I don't have any strays that aren't attached!" He's thinking "Oh hey I'm about to get some...(all else is lost LOL)" So sex time can occasionally be gag-reflex-of-doom time if there's a little hair that's just dying to be in my throat because it's not content to stay where it belongs.
Back to the upper hemisphere...I forget to shave my underarms until they start to itch and annoy me. Then I shave. It probably happens about once a month. My legs? You wouldn't know I haven't shaved since 6th grade - you just can't see the hair - so I feel like having an opinion is kind of like looking down from a place where you get the best of both worlds and making a judgment - kinda uncool, really.
My daughters might get my hairless legs or they might get the mane of leg hair that is DH's - either way I want them to do what they feel is best for them. Pink hair? No problem! Hairy underarms? No problem! Pube shaving? Well...I might try to convince them to dye it green instead and put a temporary tattoo of a sheep on top and then just shave a winding little road into the pubic hair for humor value...but that's just how I parent LMAO!
My poor kids aren't going to know what to do with themselves. I have this scary feeling that when they rebel they are going to wear skirt-suits and french twists and use hairspray and *shudder* wear sensible black pumps. Because that's really what it's about - the fun of rebellion and what that will look like for those of us that aren't mainstream to begin with.
Reminds me of Family Ties and the Michael P. Keaton character.
