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

Oo, me, me!! Well sort of. : I did shave my legs last week after all. I find I like my hair a lot better in the summer when everyone can see it anyways.

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

So I am still flying under the radar?

What would a hairy smiley look like?

This one just doesn't describe me.

Hi! I shaved for my gyno appointment last week but I'm hoping to go au naturel from waist down for a bit now. I've done it before a couple times and I love it.

My friends are finally starting to accept my fluff. I got TONS of cr@p for being hairy. DH got used to it really fast and now loves it. My "friends" really thought it was necessary to let me know they thought I was a freak for a long time. My true friends had no problem with it though.

I can't take credit for *(.)(.)* I don't know who came up with it. Just passing the love along!

Have a happy day awesome womyn! :

Haven't shaved my legs since my beach vacation the first week of Oct. I really only shave if I'm going to be in a swimsuit. I haven't fully embraced my hairiness. I just live in jeans. I don't shave to see an ob though. Hopefully I'll eventually learn to show of my hairy legs DH doesn't seem to care one way of the other. He certainly doesn't complain. DH has recently gone hairy too. He quit shaving and cutting his hair. Once he got past the prickly phase I'm loving it.

However, I do shave under my arms every day.

Every day? Wow! When I shaved my pits, I didn't shave more than 2-3X a week! I actually stopped shaving my pits before I stopped shaving my legs, as I don't wear sleeveless tops for modesty reasons but my calves are always visible under dresses.

I'm with you, oldermamato5. Quite partial to the pit hair. The legs? Well, I like them a lot better when they're hairy and tan.

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

Really, I am just lazy and don't often see a mirror. Dp doesn't care so why should I? He nevers gets past 1 week of stubble as it tears my skin up. I wonder if I could get past the stubble if i would like it?

I honestly can't remember the last time I shaved anything...

I thought about it long and hard for a few months last year. I had this rash under my arms that just wouldn't heal and thought about shaving to see if that would make a difference (it made sense at the time, I swear!), but it healed all on its own after I switched deodorant.

So I'm still happily fuzzy!

And/or the women who love them, no?

I quit shaving everything in 2002. I still remember the first time I felt a breeze through the hairs on my legs and thinking, Wow, and why have I been missing out on this since age 11?!?

Love to the natural mamas!
