  • It is awesome.

    I have been shaving my armpits for 5 years now. I like it better and it feels better. I also noticed I do not smell as much. My wife seems to enjoy it as well. I think everyone should do what they are comfortable with, but I just think a shaven armpit looks better on a male or female. What is the hair really there for anyway?

  • Yes, Men Should Shave Their Armpits

    It would look a little odd for a man in our society (U.S.) to shave his armpits, but he should be able to do so if he wants to. For one thing, if a man shaved his armpits it would cut down on that "hard working man" smell that some guys can have. Also, it might look a little neater for a man to not have loads of visible underarm hair. It might take a while for us to get used to, but men should definitely shave their armpits whenever they want. Personal choice should always trump someone else's idea of masculinity.

  • yes

    A men should be able to shave his armpits if he pleases. pubic hair on armpits can sometimes be uncomfortable, and it doesn't affect men at all to have our armpits shaved. Plus i think lady's like hairless armpits any day over armpits full of sweaty hair. Men are free to shave their armpits.

  • Shaving is for hygienic purposes, not masculinity

    If shaving makes you comfortable, then do it! Do not be influenced by other people's opinion, this is a free country and do what you want! They say shaving is gay, but removing your penis is truly gay. This is not the prehistoric times, this is the 21st century, try to be open minded about this.

  • Men have always done whatever it takes to make themselves look more attractive to the opposite sex

    It's cleaner look, smells better, shows your body definition better. Some men have what it looks like a rug growing on their bodies... I choose not to look that way. It's the new millennium, not the age of Aquarius. Pits, Upper Arms, Back, Crack, Balls (porn cut), that's what I'm talking about. Trim the rest to 1/4" to 1/3"... Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things... Get over it already!

  • Just much better

    I am shaving my pits (just like pubes and chest/bellybuttom) for a while and I notice many people around me also start to do so. It looks so much better than having lots of hair coming out of your pits. And I really noticed a reducton of odour. I think it should become a standard, just like shaving pubes already is. There are always conservative people who say it isnt manly etc, well we live in 2014. If we expect women to shave bodyhair, why can't we?

  • Shave your armpits

    I believe that men should shave their arm pits as women do too. Maybe some women don't like to be seen as 5 year old girls and how they have an expectation to be hairless. It makes me maddddd!! If men can't to something simple to be clean then why should women!

  • Yes of course we should.

    I don't see what the issue is, I mean it's okay to shave facial hair right? Why not shave armpit, or leg, or public hair? It's a style decision for men. It's not a lack masculinity because it masculinity is more than just shaving, I mean just because a guy shaves himself in other places, doesn't make him less of a man.

  • Feeling clean and proper

    There are always the same arguments. If a man shaves his armpits he smells better because there aren't any bacteria causing bad odors. You don't sweat as much as you still have your hair in the pits. Besides I shave my armpits regularly and my wife likes it. It#s every bodies turn.

  • Should men shave their armpits?

    No! We are not women we are men. It is getting very strange today, as if being a "normal" male (masculine) is a bad thing. Same goes for guy's shaving chest and legs, very effeminate. Swimming and body building I can understand the reason for it other than that just odd to me.

  • Natural Is Hot, Shaved Is Not

    Few aspects of de-masculinization are less healthy looking or appealing than a guy who shaves his armpits. Or chest hair. Or pubic hair. Or legs. It has nothing to do with hygiene. The trend began with women who want to control their men, e.g., Delilah. It exploded with gay porn for old pervs who have fantasies about pre-pubescent boys. Body builders obsessed with gigantic muscles are a totally different perversion. It's also part of the clone wars to destroy individuality. When guys go through puberty, we develop hair on different parts of our bodies, some a little, some a lot. It's natural. Mowing down these outward and visible signs of masculine identity indicates low self esteem, shame, fear, or other psychological problems. Natural is hot. Shaved is not.

  • Body builders, Competitive Swimmers and devout Muslims only!

    Why should a guy be as smooth as a lady or pre-pubescent boy? In my opinion, it looks completely disgusting and awkward! If you compete in bodybuilding or swimming, you have at least an excuse. If you're Muslim, that's your choice. I see nothing wrong with trimming them if desired :-)

  • Men should not be naked mole rats.

    Guys are supposed to have hair under their arm pits. God made men and intended them to have more hair than women. Why change that? You may smell a little better, but you also deplete some of your masculinity. It's like you haven't hit puberty yet. I want a man not a per-pubescent teenage boy. That is all.

  • No!

    Men should not have to shave their armpits if they don't feel as if they need to. Men still need to be men, why take everything away from them? The only reason women shave is to remove excess hair in order to be more feminine. Armpit hair really doesn't harm anyone, so why should men have to remove it?

  • No, that is excessive

    Men shaving their armpits is a little bit excessive. Women shave their armpits because having a hairy body is seen as masculine, hence why women shave. Men obviously want to be masculine, but in certain situations men can shave their armpits and look good. It would be more reasonable for them to keep their pits trimmed.

  • No

    There is simply no need for a man to shave their armpits unless at the discretion of their partner. If their partner does not like hair, then a man might be willing to do this. As a man, to shave your armpits would be a waste of money and time. Plus razor burn would be worse for men as they have coarser hair.

  • Shaving no, trimmed yes

    A clean trimmed arm pit is very very sexy! You don't want to look like a 10 year old boy, men need arm pit hair women do not . However, you do not want an out of control big hairy bush under there that is gross. Keep it trimmed and simple.

  • Okay but Ridiculous

    Women shaving armpits is a relatively recent custom in the western world. Shaving/grooming pubic hair is a result of clothing styles and not wanting to show hair around skimpy panties, bikinis, shorts, etc. In general women, compared to men, are relatively hairless and shaving what little hair there is makes the few hairy body parts more like the rest of the body. Men, on the other hand, are generally hairy and shaving does nothing other than make a previously hairy part of the body look ridiculous. Shaving also keeps orifices clean. Two often used orifices are the genitals and the mouth. Genitals are washed after sex but it's difficult for men to shower or completely clean faces after eating so facial shaving is a custom for men. Frankly, in general, shaved men are as unattractive as hairy women.

I think men should only shave their armpits if they want to, just as women should only shave their armpits if they want to. If the individual wants to shave, then they should, if they don't, then they don't have to.
