Pervert. Sechs, go to your room.
I think the point is that hair indicates sexual maturity and is a trigger for normal attraction. If you look throughout the animal kingdoms you will see numerous examples in reptiles (scale color), birds (faethers and colors) and mamals (fur/hair).
Of course the modern culture is different, but as we have been mentioning, some of that is rather recent.Perhaps, but if you go forward with that argument based on hair, consider that when a child begins to grow hair for the first time in specific regions of their body, they would not be considered mature by any means of the law. I understand what you mean from an adult perspective, but I don't see it as a way to measure normal attraction. My preference for reduce hair on a female has no relation to viewing her as younger or as an adolescent. Smoother skin is the desirable trait, and in the interest of the topic title, it's no different than a man shaving a beard and a woman enjoying the smoothness of the skin (I know that isn't the only or prime reason a man would shave).
In the case of humans that might make sense if hairiness was universal. It isn't. Some adults have little or nothing in the way of pubic hair or body hair. My own preference is hair on the head and eyebrows, only. The second I see hair anywhere else, it's a huge turnoff. I've actually known females who feel the same way about guys. I think from a cleanliness standpoint less or no hair probably make more sense. We're eventually heading in that direction evolutionally anyhow.I think the point is that hair indicates sexual maturity and is a trigger for normal attraction.

Haven't tried any of them yet. Still getting a baseline with Wilkenson Swords and cheapo Walgreen's. I only shave every other day as it is.Howell:
Have you tried the Feathers? If so, how long do they last?
Badger hair seems to be common for shaving brushes. The education section of Shaving101.com might be usful to you.The brush he included is old, has some kind of white natural hair, and a brass base.
Now, what kind of lather to get, and a bowl...
As mentioned previously, I use the King of Shaves Alpha Gel. (When I was shaving daily for work), a 175ml tube of gel would last approximately 3-4 months. (A tube RRPs for about AU$9.99). One of the older shaving soaps would last 4-5 months when used correctly... But I do find the 8-10 mth claim a bit much.Supposedly, the one $22 jar of shaving cream I bought will last 8 to 10 months, versus going though a $7 bottle of Nivea every six weeks.
Thing about straight razors is I was going to use them for areas that are hard to get to, like under your nose. Problem is they are too wide to fit in and shave that area.I picked up some products from "The Art of Shaving" a couple weeks ago. I'm trying out different shaving creams and soaps right now, just to see if I can find something that works better. Supposedly, the one $22 jar of shaving cream I bought will last 8 to 10 months, versus going though a $7 bottle of Nivea every six weeks.
I'm not quite brave enough to try the straight razor thing. Though they would've been happy enough to sell me one.
