Why is hair in certain areas more acceptable?

Asked by Draconess25 (4448points) May 27th, 2010

A full head of hair is generally seen as acceptable. Multitudes of body hair is not.

I know there are some personal & cultural exceptions, but this seems to be the verdict for the most part.

Why is that?

Maybe it reminds us of where we are from, evolutionarily speaking.

It is totally a matter of fashion and it changes through the ages.

I reckon Sarah Jessica Parker should grow a beard.A monumental improvement it would make ,aesthetically speaking anyway.

I could happily live my life never shaving my legs again, but when I wear a skirt, it just looks wrong to me. Conditioning, I assume. However, I prefer my underarms to be shaved as it seems that they hold less of my sweaty smell when they’re bare. Even with deodorant.

Agree with @Draconess25 . Femme au jus for me.

@Lightlyseared Yes, but why is it considered fashionable?

Why are boy shorts and over the knee socks fashionable this year? And what’s with all the cat suits all of a sudden?

Draconess25's avatar

@Lightlyseared Well, I just wear whatever I want. I had no clue any of that was fashionable.

@Primobabe I don’t have to, I don’t have much hair.

@faye Sure. I think the quote is from “Joy of Sex”.
