I had never heard of people doing this before I moved to LA, but it's quite common here for women to shave/wax their arms. I'm not sure what is so abhorrent about arm hair that makes this necessary, though.


#11, normally people who are really self conscious about their body hair will shave or wax their arms. I've actually considered waxing my arms before, and it's not that strange to most people. But if OP isn't fond of the idea, her boyfriend shouldn't be an arse and should respect her. After all, I doubt OP asks her boyfriend when he's going to shave his legs or armpits.

I have a lot of arm hair and I personally hate it and have considered waxing. But shaving doesn't make sense to me at all. The last thing I want is stubble growing in and having it look like shaved legs. When you wax the hair is pulled from the root so the hair grows in with a small fine tip on the end, when you shave you cut off the fine tip making it look thicker and courser until it grows long enough that it grows a fine tip.

I'm not hairy at all but still shave/wax my arm hairs +.To me it looks better and they aren't stubby at all, especially when I moisturize my skin. My BF also does the same-- including his chest hairs. Plus he trims his leg hairs super short with his beard trimmer. Where I live, it's common for everyone to do. Males included.

Who doesn't shave their arms? In New Zealand I've never dated a woman who has hairy armpits. I find it actually repulsive and sickening if a woman hadn't shaved/trimmed/waxed/etc her arms.

Well I don't like to shave my facial hair but my GF ask me to do because I look more attractive to her that. She rewards me well after I shave, so some compromise does help.

I get so angry when I'm asked this...
I don't wax or shave for the guys benefit, I do it because I hate having hair there.
It's extremely rude and insensitive of ANYONE to expect you to shave any part of your body..
