By Guest Danniel, December 18, in soompi hangout. When I was around 14 I had several friends who were on the swim team at school and a few other friends who were into bicycle racing and even a few more friends who were on the Soccer team at school. All of these friends of mine shaved their bodies including their legs, arms and even underarm hair, chest and pubic hair.
Which made us wonder: Is this a trend? Are guys everywhere starting to do this now? Obviously bikers and swimmers do it for very specific reasons: wound-healing and aerodynamics, respectively. But we wanted quantifiable results on whether average guys might be cleaning up down there. So that adds up to nearly half of the men we surveyed doing something about their leg hair. If you're not shaving your legs currently, or at least trimming, you might be surprised to know that you're just barely in the majority, according to our poll.
I can't help but laugh that you think that boys shaving their legs is the root cause of the decline of family. If being manly and procreating is what you want to teach your sons, that's fine by me. I'd rather teach mine to be themselves, and not to start a family until they are ready. I personally believe that forcing religious ideals on children, and teaching them to fit a certain mold is largely responsible for problems they have as an adult, especially when it comes to parenting. Instead, I believe that educating them about morals and why I choose to follow the religious path that I do will allow them freedom to be themselves, but they will still respect my opinion, and hopefully will wait until they are responsible enough to start a family, if that is what they decide they want. If it takes letting my sons shave their legs to let them learn a little about themselves, I'm sure they'll find a girl who like me doesn't care much for "masculine" hair. Misty, I completely agree with you. I'm not suggesting that boys shaving their legs is a root cause of anything. But it is a symptom of something.
I have been married to a doctor for 25 years. You can't force her to change, nor should you if you could. This means first being clear that you want to go on a date. And the nonmember spouse may just put pressure on the member spouse to spend more time with them.
