I really take my body for granted, in that the hair isnt so excessive. Even the hair that is there is pretty easy to take care of. Reading around this forum makes me realize just how hard it is to be smooth, not only physically, but emotionally.
My hair makes me feel awkward. I have very sparse and whispy hairs on my arm that are very hard to see. Some facial hair is present, but still not that much. Definitely controllable. So the bulk of my body hair is below the waist. This is why it is awkward and why it is uncomfortable for me to expose myself and show how disproportionate it is. That is how I feel. Having hairy legs and not being hairy anywhere else just looks strange. Does anyone else agree?
My main target in removing hair is legs, because legs are so big compared with the rest of the body. I remember being 13 or so and shaving my legs for the first time. I didn’t know people even did that (secrecy and embarassment), and just thought that only men shave their beards. I saw an advertisement for skintimate shave gel on tv and then it dawned on me. I ran to the bathroom and got a disposable razor to shave my legs for the first time. There wasnt much to take off (at the time), and no one noticed anyway. So that’s my first time shaving my legs. Things got much more complicated after that.
Anyone else have first time stories? And how do you feel about this rite of passage?
