218. It sounds to me like she would rather not shave or remove her hair
That being the case, my guess is that she not would appreciate your advice or suggestion about the "right way" or the "best way" to remove her hair.

Since the poster you responded to has been tombstoned and is not able to respond, I thought I would take the liberty to respond myself.

I am a heterosexual male who has always had an attraction to body hair on women, and who has always wished that women in non-trivial numbers would let their natural body hair grow out. I could never understand why anything else in our society is and has been acceptable except for natural body hair on women.

I respect a woman's (or a man's) own preference and choice to remove their own body hair. However I feel the need to speak out against pressure on women in general to remove their body hair, or suggestions that women in general "should", or are "supposed to", or "ought to" remove their body hair.
