Is body hair a turn off?

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!

      Thank you for commenting๐Ÿ˜Œ yeah exactly! There’s so much stigma about girls with body hair like it’s automatically seen as a disgusting thing! It’s so unfair, i wish people were more open minded that body hair is kind of irrelevant when it comes to beauty x

    My boyfriend and I have always been very open and honest with each other. When it comes to body hair, we might ask what the other prefers but we always come back to telling each other that we like them either way, it’s just whatever they want to do to feel comfortable. Sometimes I wanna shave and be smooth for me or for him- sometimes I’m lazy or I feel I can wait a few days. It’s something I think we both admire about one another, it’s not about looks or even the feeling of prickles on each other. It’s just what makes us feel good to ourselves and that makes us feel good together (:

    This is such a good question. I do prefer to be hair free, for me or for him. But I would NEVER be with a man that would mind if I hadn’t shaved for a couple of days or weeks. If it’s Winter and I’m lazy you can bet my legs will not be free of hair every week. I just wear pants most days or thick thights and I sleep wearing pajama pants. If you don’t like it, go F yourself. Also, after a few years, he has seen me with crazy hair, in desperate need of a shower, wearing old leggings, wearing grandma period panties, having huge anxiety attacks, being miserable and being the biggest bitch ever. He can handle a little hair.

      Exactly! I think if you’re in a relationship with someone they should accept you for who you are and if its acceptable for men to be hairy and we put up with their hairy legs then they can put up with ours haha!

    Loved this! I’m one extreme or the other I either remove every hair in sight or let it all grow because I’m too lazy to shave! Luckily neither me or my boyfriend are bothered by it but it’s so annoying that we live in a society where something so natural is seen as shameful and it should be a personal choice either way x

    This is a great topic! Why is it that guys can have hair all over the but girls can’t? We all know those winter feels when the LAST thing you feel like doing is standing awkwardly over the bath shaving your legs.

    I love your blog! You really captivate an audience ๐Ÿ™‚

        So true!! Since when did hair ever mean that you’re not feminine?! Our bodies grow hair for a reason. It should be embraced and not hidden! But I suppose this world is very far away from that ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜’ So great to be able to chat about this kind of stuff online! Keep up the great posts lovely ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜ Thanks for the follow!
