Ok, I've been shaving my entire downstairs since my pubes started to grow. I don't really know why, but they always creeped me out a little and I've always felt much better when I'm smoothy smooth. So I've stuck with it.
I'm fifteen now, so thats about three years worth of shaving.


I've been dating my boyfriend (a year older) for over a year now, and recently met his "little buddy". However, I hadnt realized how much pubic hair he actually had until I went down on him. Oh my god. There is so much. I commented on it and he was basically like "oh well".

I don't know what to think, because not only does it creep me out a little (remember my issues?), but it gets in the way because its either up my nose or getting caught under my hand - which isn't pleasant. I've been living with it for a few months, and while I love this boy to death - they're really wuite a bit of a turn off for me.

Can anyone suggest a way to suggest a trim? or something? He's very closed minded about a lot of things. Claims they're "weird". And he knows me, a lot of his female friends, and a few guy friend meddle with their "down-there-hair".
I don't want him to get rid of it all, I'd just rather there wasn't so much that it makes me need to sneeze whenever I go down on him.
Any ideas?

Have you mentioned to him at all that you would like for him to trim (or something)? [Smile] It's very hard for people to read minds-- I've been trying for a long time.

When it comes down to it, shaving is really a personal preference. By all means, you may suggest to him in the lieu of conversation, "Have you ever considered trimming?" (or however you would feel comfortable going about that) but in the end, it remains his choice whether he wants to or not.

(And pubic hair really shouldn't creep you out too much. After all, it's totally natural and is hardly different than the hair on our heads. [Smile] )
