Hey y'all :)
I am a new member and wanted to introduce myself:
My name is Tina, I'm 22 years old and living in Germany.
Growing up, I used to go swimming with my mom who never really shaved and so I kind of grew up with another view on the whole "body hair" issue...i used to not shave either until I was about 15 and got teased about my "hairy legs" in gym class and got asked why I didn't shave cause it was apparently "gross".
That went on everyday until I caved under the pressure and started shaving,even more so when I had my first girlfriend who claimed to be "hair-phobic" and threatened me to leave me if I wasn't practically hairless everytime she saw me...yeah she wasn't a great person in general but I won't go there.

Anyway,ever since I broke up with my ex, I haven't been shaving anything except my chin (I have hirsutism and am quite self conscious about the hair under my chin,which is dark and quite visible) and the lower part of my legs whenever they're visible.
I plan to stop that too,eventually,but I have yet to master up the courage to show my legs unshaved in public. I guess it's a thing that needs some time to progress.

Under the cut are some pit pictures (piTctures? :D) of mine!
Enjoy :D

I'm sorry if it's not that visible but it's kinda hard to shoot a picture of your armpit when you're not used to it :)

Haha,excuse the greasyface and the weird angle of my glasses...I'd just come back from a 3hr train ride and was kinda exhausted :)

Awesome pics! I can relate to feeling insecure about thick lower leg hair. Your gorgeous, keep being true to yourself :)

Nice! Hope you get the courage to leave the legs natural too; not always easy going against peer pressure!

Hairy Women

I am a guy who has for most of my life been attracted to women who have more than average body hair. It has just always seemed either a non-issue or even sexy. I can't imagine you being with anyone who would want you to look like a 10 year old girl. Seriously...isn't that kinda creepy? Hairyphobia is a common thing these days but it is reversible and one of the chief causes is simply the fact that it is different because hairy people almost always hide their hairiness. The magazines of overly shaven women and men cover the racks of every supermarket on the planet now. Bottom line, I think it's hot and I am a good looking bachelor. It's ok to keep it trim but I don't think we should be shaving off the hair that makes us look like grown-ups (underarms, legs, stomach etc.) Older women have hairy faces so it's not like a big deal but you should keep that shaved if for no other reason than to not look like a woman in her 50s or 60s if you are in your 20s or 30s.

re: hirstutism
have you considered getting your facial hair threaded? apparently it promotes thinner hair growth x
