attempted it twice.

first time, it made my belly itch, and i figured it was a fluke, so i tried it again some months later. well, it wasn't a fluke, so i have since learned to leave the hair alone.

i have dark hair, and even so, it's not anything that's particularly noticeable.

I am female and yes, I have some hair on my tum. I think it's safe to say that most people, male and female, have a little bit of fuzzy tummy hair. It's perfectly normal.

As for shaving the pubic area, yes, some people do it. Some people also wax the area. From my experience, there can be some irritation from shaving, so I prefer just to trim instead.

Take a look at this article: http://www.scarleteen.com/body/adv_shave.html

I have hair on my stomach as well, almost like a mans 'Treasure Trail' but not so traily. I've learned to like my trail of hair, so i've left it there, its so much more easier than shaving.

For hair, down there, it's what you decide. Some people like it natural and some people like it pre-pubescent... its what you're comfterable with.

Most of the girls I've dated had a little hair on their belly. Those that didn't most likely shaved. It's normal. And, it's not a bad thing.

as far as im concerned, a normal human being has stomach everywhere on their body except for their feet and palms. yes my stomach is hairy, and so are my friends..i've asked them. and don't worry..nobody will be looking close enough to notice its hairy, because everybodys is. also, i shave down there. i do it like once a week, and after like the first time yo shave it doesn't bother you. iuse the venus passions shaver and it works really well and i just lather it good with shaving cream. the only part that itches is when it starts growing back, but thats everything. dont' worry, it shoudln't be bad. well hope that helped...got any other ?'s just ask. bye

My friends told me they shave their stomachs. I thought it was more than a little odd, but tried it. I found it useless because my lil happy trail doesn't bother me. So I have a hairy tummy, I guess.

Hey! I have hair on my feet! They're elf feet and I love them. I have little fuzzies on the top of my feet and on my big toes. I love them, they're way cute!

I think she meant soles of the feet -- I hope! Or else a great deal of us are very abnormal.

I have hair on my belly too, but I only get this one annoying black hair that i either pluck or shave. I shave down there also, and I use the Venus Passion razor like BloneChick. I've found that it works really well for me too.

Hey, thanx for the advice! i did shave it once and it didnt bother me, but it did grow back a little longer. i have my belly button pierced, so i like to wear shirts that show my belly and i was embarressed of the hair in my tummy because other girls i see dont have any. I guess i'll get used to it. and besides, you can always bleach it. ( i have dark hair too).
laterz....

Have you considered that maybe the reason you don't see it on other girls is just because it isn't at all visible except up close? We've all got hair; we're mammals, we'd look funny without it, but often it's only visible as something that keeps us from looking shiny, rather than as obvious fur.
