Men, I´d like to know how you feel about shaving your armpits? Do you let it grow - or do you shave - or trim?
A lot of men over here in Europe prefer shaving if I look around our gym or my team at martial arts or soccer.
I recognize a lot of men from the USA prefer their pits hairy - not shaved.
I for myself dislike shaving. I trim.
There are more important ways to gauge a mans masculinity than armpit hair. It may be a good laugh, but you're talking about someone who has a better physique than most of us can imagine, works full time to support a family and has an excellent relationship with his kids. Ill double his man cred any day on that alone!
I've noticed that among some younger guys too. I wouldn't personally though; maybe because I was a late bloomer in that department and was ready to catch up with most of friends.
I don't find a reason doing this,and yes many people in Europe are shaving even their legs & chest and i vastly disagree on that.
Absolutely not! Trim when excessive, but otherwise be natural.
I have extremely long arm pit hair. I have been complimented on how masculine it is and have also been teased that it is so long it could be braided. I have trimmed a few times in the past, but I let it go natural for years. I'll never shave it completely.
I also got the braided comment. I have trimmed it a couple of times but it is more hassle than it's worth.
Hello Josh, I trim it, too. Years ago I shaved my armpits, but didn't like the feeling.
Myself, I would trim, but I don't see any reason to shave it off completely. To be honest though I think that as far as women go, a man who looks like he completely ignores his hair until it is Chewbacca-length looks worse than a man who goes a little bit excessive, but that's just me.
I think that if a man looks so vain or obsessed with his appearance that he seems more interested in himself than in women though, then that might "raise questions" or be a turn-off. But in practice I tend to see average guys in day-to-day life erring too much on the slob side than the 'dandy' side, almost like out of some fear of "looking gay"; maybe this is just a Yank thing.
