"No-Shave November? We Wear Body Hair All Year Long!"

Imagine never having to think about maintaining your bikini area — ever. Believe it or not, hairy legs, fuzzy pits, and 'no hair down there' are a way of life for plenty of women. That means skipping directly over the pre-date deforestation process and straight to outfit selection. We asked two women who live the no-shave lifestyle (and not just in November) to reveal what it's really like to live and love in a follicle-phobic society.

Dating Horror Story: He Wanted To Watch Me Get A Brazilian Wax

About two months into my relationship with B, he started sharing his desire to see me get a Brazilian wax. Of course, this was never going to happen. Not only are guests not welcome in the waxing room, but I wasn't about to have anyone outside of my beloved waxer see me writhe in such pain as I did everything within my power not to scream out something bizarre or obscene.

Does Having A Boyfriend Affect How Often You Shave Your Legs?

Recently, I've been thinking about how the changing seasons affect my beauty habits. A few examples: I wax my bikini line during bathing suit season, I don't exfoliate as much in the winter and I wear a gel moisturizer instead of a cream one in the summer to avoid oiliness. But one that I've noticed myself and many others tend to do is shaving less during the colder seasons, when we can cover up our stubble (or forest) with long pants or tights.

How To Keep Love Alive

Why is it that a month into a relationship and suddenly you feel like it’s ok to stop trying? Yes, it’s normal and totally acceptable to let our guards down a little- to not get gussied up every time you see him, to turn him down for sex on occasion, to sit around in sweat pants,… even to fart. Get comfortable, make yourself at home in his presence, let your hair down, be yourself. That’s all great. BUT YOU STILL HAVE TO PUT SOME EFFORT INTO IT! HE ISN’T YOUR BROTHER.

Weird News: A Feather Pubic Hair Wig? Yes, Really.

As far as the attractiveness of the Foxy Bikini and The Carnivale (the fox fur and the feather treatments, respectively) go, this writer has not enjoyed the opportunity to check them out close-up. However, one can imagine that it would be pretty funny to go through the awkward process of pulling someone's clothes off for the first time to be confronted with what looks like an animal either trying to enter or escape from a woman's babymaker.

No Shave November: Dudes, Where's Your Chest Hair?

We've come a long way from the days of Burt Reynolds' hairy chest to what's considered sexy now. "No Shave November," this month's prostate cancer awareness campaign, which is encouraging men not to shave for the entire month, is certainly an exception to the trend!

Should Your Man Pay For Your Bikini Wax?

In The Hairpin's Ask a Dude column recently, an advice-seeker brought up this hairy situation: who should pay for your bikini wax? She thinks the man asking for it should, writing "I always think guys should be paying for the Brazilians if they want their ladies to have them. Is that insane?"

The Hair Down There Was His Deal Breaker

On our first date, we ended up making out in a bar on the Lower East Side. Our second date, I invited him up to my apartment. Maybe I was moving too fast, but I didn't care. After a tough breakup, I wanted to let my hair down. Which, I discovered over the next few weeks, wasn't Tobey's thing. One night I mentioned it jokingly, and he said, "I don't mind doing that at all. If a woman is well-groomed."

Facial Hair: Should You Ask Him To Shave?

We've all been there: You come up for air during a heavy makeout session and feel a distinct burning sensation... on your face. Thanks to Loverboy's adoption of the rugged men of "Lost"'s unshaven aesthetic, you've got yourself a case of razor burn worse than when you first tried shaving your legs without water. Love hurts, yes, but it shouldn't be threaten to ruin all of the hard work of your Proactiv regimen. So what's a tactful but smitten woman to do when a dude's facial hair causes her pain? Advice expert Alanna Kalb, author of the upcoming book Stuff Every Woman Should Know, has this to say: "Much like wearing lumberjack plaid, beards make men feel masculine. And men like to feel masculine." In other words, it might be your skin at stake, but it could also be his manhood, so broach the subject with sensitivity.

Tricks to no sex talk: Shaving?

Ladies, do you ever NOT shave your legs or your vay jay jay just so you don't fall into temptation and sleep with a guy? The dry humping is getting hot and heavy on his couch and his python is ready to bust out of his pants and the only thing that is saving you from doing the dirty is that fuzzy peach you're hiding in those undies. Or what about those horrendous granny panties that will leave his penis in a comatose stage in seconds? Do any of these girl tricks work? I have to personally say that yes, not being in open house condition has stopped me from sleeping with a guy and seriously, I will drive home thanking god and my ingenuity otherwise I would be in some hot mess ;)

Can Manscaping Go Too Far?

Manscaping, as a trend, may have hit its final plateau. Evidently, the grooming trend has gone to the point that some women are actually imploring men to let things grow a bit rather than shaving all of their pubic hair clean off. Let us know what you think.
