This is more of a cosmetic question. What I want to know is this:
When women shave their muffins (or genital areas), why do they leave a small strip of hair right in the middle? I am sure this is more than just "Got tired and quit before shaving it all off". Cannot figure out why not shave the whole area? Surely there is a good reason for this. Been bothering me for years but had better sense than to ask a woman directly for fear of being slapped!
I think its a style thing. Some girls leave a little triangle (point down), some take everything off, I once hear of a girl leaving a little heart. There are girls who leave themselves natural or who trim a little. It is like different hair cuts (on her head). I think the "landing strip" style you are talking about has been popularized (normalized to some degree) by the porn industry. So maybe women just feel that that's what men expect it to look like.
As for what women like, I guess it probably differs depending on the woman. I wouldn't be doing any sucking/licking on a guy who wasn't trimmed (not only does it make him seem neat but somehow cleaner in my mind). I find completely shaved a little creepy on a guy. That's just me though.
Razor burn is a horrible and painful outcome of shaving it completely. The skin is especially sensitive over the clitoris, and it is very easy to cut yourself. It's also painful as the hair grows back. We have little red bumps for a few weeks until it heals, which is less attractive than simply being trimmed. I like to keep tidy, but I won't put myself through hell and back because some boy doesn't want a real woman.
Shaving is a pain in the butt for women too, not just men. I'd like to keep a little hair there but my boyfriend very much objects to it. He wants it all off, or he won't touch me. He says he just can't go down on me if there is anything there, but he doesn't do that either way. I know if I put any demands like that on him he'd flip out, tell me I'm trying to control him or something. Oh well, sorry for spilling my stress all over your thread.
The landing strip shows a desire to have a well goomed clean look. A patch of hair shows a mature look while to me a shaved p**** makes me think of a pre puberty child.I am not the least bit interested in thinking of the woman I am with as anything but adult. Hair also holds odor and who wants to get hair in the mouth when perfornming oral sex.Being a man a clean looking as well as smelling p**** is such a turn on .I also shave my balls and leave a landing strip for my wife to have the same experience.She loves it.
