Why do women remove hair from their pits and nether regions?
I depilate because society tells me to...
I depilate because my mate likes the "prepubescent" look...
I am free and natural. I don't depilate. I am one with the universe...
I or my mate depilates because that is what the other person wants...
None of the above

I asked my wife this same question and she replied "Why, I do it for you dear." I told her that I would rather she not do it for me. However, she continues to depilate. So, I know it must not be for me. Maybe she does it for the mailman?

So, I did a little research. I thought there had to be a simple explanation. "Hygiene" I'm thinking, probably in the olden days when water and soap wasn't as plentiful and good perhaps it came in style. But, as near as I can tell, it all came about as kind of an after thought type of thing. They used the hygiene spiel as a cover-up to explain why they had removed pit-hair from a photo-shoot.

The hygiene argument is out of the question. There is nothing hygienic about it. Especially in this day and age. And with the prices of everything going through the roof, women being more empowered and embracing who they are plus everybody focusing on what is natural... You would think we would start to see a lot more hairy women on the streets.

So, that is my question for today:

Why do women remove hair from their pits and nether regions?

    Have you ever had a crotch hair stuck in your throat? It is pretty disgusting.

    Sure, in part it is to be more appealing to the guys, at least with the pits (I've yet to find one I'd show my nether regions). Mostly I do it because I like it better. Feels cleaner, is less itchy(though you've got to stay on top. Pubic stubble down low is one of the most irritating feelings in the world). Also, smooth legs feel awesome. I shave them all the time, and I'm rarely out of jeans. I fully intend to have laser hair removal once I'm older and can afford it, even if I become a nun.

    i go back and forth between waxing various parts and then letting them grow in. this year ive grown in my legs and armpits, and bush (sometimes use clippers to shorten but not to the skin), and i still shave my forearms. ive reclaimed so much extra shower and date-prep time that was wasted before, and no more pain from chronic ingrowns. i love it!

    I have close friends from all over Europe and this is a topic we've talked about. The hair holds more bacteria and they do smell more even with deodorant. I've had a German women stick her hairy arm in my face on a plane putting her bag up and it was horrible. Men's underarms smell much more than a womens.

    It's ugly and nasty, and holds stink. But only the pits....the other regions itch mercilessly when you shave them so I take that as a sign that it's not necessary or intended, LOL

    Looking at those photos made me wanna run a get the shaving kit .....I dont know if it is society that has geared women to shave ... if so I am glad I am the age where shaving is considered a must for women .....If I had arm pit hair like that I would NEVER wear a strapless anything ... As far was the lower region .... have you seen a woman in a bikini with spider legs coming out of the crotch ..... NOT a pleasant sight ..... When I seen that I was like OMG I will be swimming with lose pubes "Shudders" needless to say that was the end of my public pool days I was scarred for life bikini hair funny

    Just think of all the crap women do, buy ,wear, because " society " said so. How many hair products, dyes, shampoos, conditioners, sprays and appliances of one sort or another. Make up products, listing would take all day. Then the matter of clothing and shoes. And all of it is done because they are all in competition with every other women on earth. It is NOT done for approval from they're mate, as they say it is.
