Hairy Armpits Are Hot!!

Hairy Armpits Are Hot!!

A while back, I wrote a post about shaving body hair. Well, this one is about NOT shaving. Armpits.  Women’s armpits. 

I don’t know why this country became so body hair intolerant over the centuries, but I don’t think it is a good thing.  The good ol’ US of A has the highest rate of breast cancer of any developed country and I think I know why – shaving armpits and using antiperspirant!  We all learn in biology that “form follows function”.  That just begs the question, what is the function of hair in our armpits? Try this theory on for size – humans sweat, it is how we keep cool, and we tend to sweat a lot from our armpits.  I believe the hair is there to “wick” the moisture away from the body so it can evaporate.  Remove the hair, and the moisture can’t do that.

But wait! What moisture? Because women routinely slather their pits with antiperspirant, there is no moisture coming out anyway. All that sweat, and the bad things in it, is being forced to build up in the body right next to the lymph nodes that are usually removed during a mastectomy. Are you starting to see the connection – sweat, lymph nodes, breast cancer? 

Stopping your body from eliminating waste just CANNOT be a good idea! (Constipation comes to mind.) So we should stop doing it!

Now, if women only shave to be attractive to men, I don’t think most men would care if they stopped.  I used to live in The San Francisco Bay area and, being the home to free spirits from everywhere, it was not totally uncommon to see women with hairy armpits.  I didn’t find it to be gross or icky, in fact, probably because it was different, I found it to be slightly erotic!!  And I am not alone in this. Don’t believe me? Try Googling “Hairy Armpits” and see how many sites you find devoted to men who like it.

Enough about pit hair, let’s move on the antiperspirants. People use them because they are afraid they will smell bad.  I’m calling “Bullshit” on that one!! While I am NOT advocating for people to stop bathing, I do think we need to get over our aversion to normal, everyday human body odors. I like a little body odor emanating from my woman!  It is normal. It is basic. It is primal!! And it triggers a primal response!! And unless a woman decides to avoid soap and water for a prolonged period of time, you really can’t detect it unless you are close… real close.  And in that case, the person you are with is not going to care!

Now, having written all this, I feel I must confess….. I have one issue about my body odor.  I never, ever leave for a massage appointment without showering first. If I am going to be laying there in the altogether with all of my flaws laid bare to a perfect stranger, I at least do not want to offend their olfactory cells! 

I hope you can all forgive that little bit of hypocrisy
