This is the tribe for all women who embrace their natural hairiness, or are thinking about doing so, and the men and women who love them.

Edited to clarify that my newly 13yo DD counts as a "woman" for the purpose of this thread.

Breaking my hiatus...because I am week!!!

Thanks for starting the new thread ruthla.
And a Hairy New Year to all!!! :

While some of you (other than little green faeries running around in the summertime in the future) are burying yourselves under layers upon layers of clothing trying to stay warm I have gone (and returned) to lovely warm California sunshine to what was one of the best vacations in my life!!

Rob and I had concerts to attend on the 30th and 31st. I was rockin the front row all night night one (until gin and tonic #7 or 8 told me it was time to hang back for the last 3 or so songs) and close to front row all night #2 until we had to leave in the midst of my all time favorite song at 4am to catch my plane. But I assure you all, I was happy with hairy!! Sadly, I didn't see any other hairy women at the shows, which was a bit disappointing, I mean this is San FranFreakingCisco!!! WTF???? None-the-less, I was very comfortable sporting my tank tops and gettin on my groove.

As for the upcoming Hairy Party, I am still on board. I'll be allowing myself more mdc time later this month probably...so if there is still an interest, let me know and I'll see what I can do about it.

Peace and love to all you Hairy Mamas out there!
I miss you! But for now...it's back to my hiatus! :

If you can't take the heat get out of the Kitchen.

Hello Lovelies!

Happy Hairy New Year!

majik - you know I was just teasing you! Very jealous, yes! But just teasing. : It's freaking freezing here. :

Ruthla - I already trim the pubes, just contemplating the legs and pits getting a trim. I probably will once I get out of this terrible funk I'm in...

Oh majik - I don't want to put out the effort. Dh just took a look at them and said that they were so dark, thick and long that it was past the point of being attractive. I've way morphed his. It will be a pain in the butt to trim them so I don't think I will. My pit hair is peeking out when I have my arms at my sides - very bushy. I might trim, don't know...

Yay for a new house! Is it bigger than the last one?

lets put it this way. the *living room* of the new house is the exact same dimensions as the entire old house (about 15' x 30')!
and on top of that we have a MASSIVE kitchen (about 15'x'15'), 3 large bedrooms, a big long balcony/ verandah, and an enormous basemet/ garage area downstairs that's been converted into a self-contained apartment. :
seriously, we hardly know what to do with all the space! after living with 3-4 people who are all home full-time in a 450sqft one-room cabin for a year and a half, I'm LOVING it

we've decided not to put any furniture in the big living room, just cushions and sheepskins, and keep it as an open space for dancing and all the study and living room furniture is going in the 'master bedroom'.

I didn't realize it was so much bigger than the old one- I just knew it was drier!

I've felt so lost since the overhaul of FYT. Well, I'm still hairy (It's been 2 yrs almost exactly) and lovin' it.

I have since started teaching....grade 6s and don't hide anything (mind you it's winter so I don't have to go too far out of my way. Some of them are sweet, and some are little buggers (e.g. "maybe one day can you teach us the YMCA song in French?...do you know that song?"....)

Lol, anywhoo, I am glad to be back amongst the fluff!

Does this mean you've lost that tropical outdoor bathtub?

wonderfully, no! : the bathtub was mine, so we took it with us. the garden it's in now is a little different, but it's ready to be set up in our rainforest garden. though tbh, now we have a proper bath in the house, I'm not sure how often I'll go outside to soak. probably just when I have special visitors and I feel like inviting outside for a candlelit tub

That sounds perfect! A "proper" bathtub inside the house for normal hygiene, but you've got the fun outdoor tub when you want the ambiance!

If I only had an outside tub in NY, I think I'd be on "sponge baths only" from mid-September til May!

welcome back all the hairy mommas that had to wait for internet service!!! still hairy here as well and lovin it. At work somone saw a peek at my hairy legs and she asked me laughing if i just stopped shaving all together. I wasnt shy and said no I just dont shave anymore.She said she would love to do that but her husband would think she is even more of a freak. So maybe she will forget to shave for a little while and her hubby will just get used to it. That is what i told her to do We might have a convert that lives close to me :

I've been in outdoor baths in snowy conditions - you make a fire under the tub (make sure you have a wooden false bottom in the tub so you don't burn your tush ), and it stays toasty warm you just reach over and add another stick to the fire now and then. and it's so nice to be in a hot tub in the snow! mmmmm

No "new" converts by me, but DD1 has been shaving less regularly (letting the pits grow, but still shaving her lower legs) and DD2 has never shaved her whole life. Of course, she's not particularly hairy yet, and may change her mind at some point in the future, but in general she's very practical and not overly concerned about fashion, and is very much the type to not bother shaving because it's a PITA and who cares how it looks? But, we'll see how being an American teenager meshes with that outlook.

majik - that's so awesome about the house! I'm so happy for you. I would very much like a bigger house. Some day Just a second floor would be nice. Some place to send the kids when they are getting loud... We live in a 1000 sq ft open concept berm. It's basically all one big room. The bed rooms have a foot of open space at the top of the walls and no doors. It's warm, so I'm not complaining! I bet it's really nice to spread out though!

caspian'smama!!!!!! I've been missing you! So nice to see you again. How have you been?

Well, now that I'm officially a mama I have decided to embrace my natural state of hairyness once again! I wish my hair wasn't so dark - I think light fluffy hair looks better than my dark, coarse hair, but oh well! I feel free and womanly!

Joining the hairy tribe! Stopped doing my legs about 2 years ago, and pits about a year ago - took dp some convincing on the pits but now he doesn't mind! I love the feeling of being proud of my WHOLE body
