    My partner and I joke about body hair a fair bit between ourselves. She likes stay shaven (legs/pits etc) but get’s lazy about it. I am completely cool either way so the jesting is definitely just fun and games but if it worried her or she felt pressured we wouldn’t joke about it and I would certainly never joke to others about it.

    @CloakOfAsh that joking thing happens in this house too, but instigated by me or BF won’t participate.

    @CloakOfAsh I was once told (by some much older men) that I should shave all of my pubic hair because sex would feel better and my boyfriend at the time would prefer it!! I previously didn’t shave or trim my hair at all so it was really bizarre to me to even groom there. I took the advice anyway and shaved EVERYTHING, and I didn’t like it tbh.

    @tea that really sucks. I really want to believe that this sort of generational gap stuff is fading out

    @CloakOfAsh I think if different body types became more normalised then it wouldn’t be such a huge issue to see hair in places people normally would be grossed out by.
