  • Because humans are dumb to think that women have to be 100% hairless to look feminine. Even with the hair women get from being a human we are still no where near as hairy as men. So having is mostly just to make males happy and not be grossed out.

  • For some Europeans they like to have armpit hair and some hair in the pubic region not so much in the legs though. Honest answer I don't know - I had a look on Google

  • Double standards... it is always the case with men and women. I have to admit I am guilty though, the feel of a woman's nice smooth shaved legs is totally sexy!

  • I could care less if a women is hairy such as legs, arms, crotch, armpits, chest, ass, or belly. I actually like it. If my girlfriend doesn't shave for whatever reason I am cool with it. Why do you ask?

  • Because of female competition. It has nothing to do with us males being bossy, but rather with with women trying to look more feminine to attract guys.

    • So if your girlfriend had hairy legs, you wouldn't tell her to shave?

  • It's fine for a woman to be hairy. It's called competition.

  • Yeah but you can do what you want. Men like women who are hairless. It's feminine.

  • It looks more feminine, if women had as much hair on them as us you wouldn't be much different than a guy

  • Very good question, the best i have seen so far which actually makes one think hmmm i don't have a real answer but i know i hardly have any hair at all on my legs which my friends envy, but i too always wondered, i guess men are seen as more masculine to have much more hairy legs than women do, I don't know but i heard some French women do not shave their armpits so who knows.

  • Men get away with being more "natural" because up until the last 50 years or so, women didn't have a choice about what they found attractive or not. They had to marry and obey a guy to get by. Now that it's evening out, guys are grooming and paying attention to fitness and hygiene more.
