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?
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.
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.
I personally find men that shave their armpits cleaner and care more about their appearance. I don't think it makes them any less masculine. I don't want sweaty armpit hair touching me ever and neither would most guys. Please, please just shave your pits! It would make the world a better place.
It actually helps on maintaining hygiene so no deodorant needed and looks clean too, trust me it works well i have tried it and there's no complain about it and it's positive
If there's shame on them, they don't know how to keep themselves clean! Try it and feel it yourself!
My wife of 30 years waxes them for me because I'm just not particularly good at stuff like that. I'm a hairy guy but that's the only part that I find annoying so I leave the rest alone. You guys that are so interested in what another man does with his pits likely have some internal issues you need to deal with. I'd suggest you learn how to live in your own skin on your own terms. If you feel bare pits make you less manly then it's probably a different part of your anatomy that's really causing that. But don't despair, I hear they have implants.
I definitely prefer guys who shave their bodies. They just look and feel so much nicer. Body hair is even more unattractive on guys than being bald. Fortunately a lot of guys my age do shave from the neck down. I'm 19 now, and I think that it will be considered completely normal in my lifetime, if it's not already.
I may be only 14 years old but i started getting under arm hair early last year. At first i didnt really mind it, however now i just think that its gross and it feels much much better to have that clean shave. I dont think that ut will affect mascunality at all. I think that just having that crisp and clean look is very good compaired to a jungle in your pits. Plus it doesnt give off that gross "man" odder or musty odder. Plus it may be better for hygenie. And girls like a shaved man/boy/teenager better anyhow so yea
Men should be able to groom how they want without censorship. If they prefer to remove hair, which is more hygienic, then they should be able to without their masculinity being questioned. Some people prefer the look of it and some the feel of it and why should anyone actually care how people feel comfortable grooming themselves?
More hygienic and looks a lot nicer than the ones who don't. Because who wants to see someone's armpit hair and pieces of deodorant stuck in there... Yuck. I think that it's the same as when you look at a girl and she has armpit hair..So please shave your 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.
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.
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 :-)
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.
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?
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.
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.
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 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!
I decided to shave my pits because I was going to Florida with several girls and I didn't want to be the hairy guy on the beach and the roller coasters. However, when my mom found out, she basically called me stupid and feminist, and I got more embarrassed than I ever would have gotten there.
So it's your call. It depends who you're with and who's going to judge you. I personally am letting mine grow back out and I probably won't ever shave them again. Besides, hairy pits are more comfortable.
