When is the right time in a relationship for it to be okay not to shave your legs? When is it supposed to be acceptable to be natural? I have been in a relationship with Cam for half a year and it was last week he unexpectedly turned up at my house for the evening. As romantic this sounds, I did not have time to prepare. By prepare I mean remove every body hair in sight; embarrassed by the cacti prickles on my legs I was reluctant to sleep with him. But isn’t it just crazy how body hair results in me feeling unattractive or any less sexy?
I was sat downstairs one evening with my mum, it was a sunny day so I was wearing pyjama shorts. Admittedly my legs were hairy, but I’m at home so surely I can relax and be in the comfort of my own home? Wrong. My mum sits next to me and throws insult after insult at my hairy legs. I don’t understand why body hair is something to be ashamed of? Society has drilled a perfect image of a woman’s body into everyone’s mind, But really is anyone perfect?
If you prefer to have a shaved legs then great or if you prefer to have fuzzy legs then cool. But only do it for you, don’t change how you look for anyone else. I like to think that I am in a relationship with a great man who isn’t fussed whether I have prickly legs or not, but some people can be very small minded and judgemental of the female body.
I’d love to know your opinions below!
