What, exactly, is the point of shaving one's legs, arms, etc.?

I can understand shaving one's face, but what is this obsession with being totally hairless?

Well woman look pretty gross with hairy underarms and legs, it's weird when men shave their legs and underarms though. I personally think that shaving your arms is pretty stupid for men and woman.

Personal preference, its more comfy
And once you start shaving your legs you cant stop because it grows back fast and its not soft anymore:(

ask yahoo had that question.
they said because (for women) as skirt/dress lengths getting shorter yrs. ago.
that women had to shave their legs, then!when women's sleeve lengths became shorter.
women had to shave their underarms as well.
as far as men is concerned!
i have heard they want that sculpted look.

Because no guy likes a girl with hairy legs; it's just gross.. There's no point in body hair.

I think that EVERYBODY has missed the real answer. It's envy. Bald people, like myself, are so good looking, that I think all those shavers want to be like us. They just get carried away and shave all the wrong places. When I take my shirt off I could pass for Sasquatch's brother.

Don't be, Tim. I'm a bit like Dick Deadeye from HMS Pinafore.
The dialogue went like this:
Deadeye: You all hate me, don't you?
All: Yes, we do.
Deadeye: It's because i'm ugly, isn't it?
All: Yes!

My fur covers a multitude of sins.

Please don't take your shirt off, Dozy, this is a family web-site after all.

You know what I wanna know, Dozy? How come you end up with more on your back than your chest? I tried to get my 3-year-old daughter to scratch my back the other day and she said, "Ew, Daddy! Your back is too fuzzy!" Of course, I have to take her word for it, but children that age don't know how to not be truthful.

@waldorff: How else can I show off my gold chain?

@Rees: You remind me of a comment by a woman who once told me her husband was so hai it was like going to bed with a giant teddy bear.

My wife won't let me go to the beach unless I shave because of a scare a few years ago with being confused for a bear.

Does it hurt when you pull them out? Maybe you could take scissors to them and just prune them a little.

I don't get it either, and neither does my buddy, Kevin Sorbo. When auditioning for Hercules, they asked him if he would be open to waxing his chest. He simply got up as if to leave and said, "I'm sorry, I thought you wanted a man for this part." Fortunately for him and TV history, the casting director made sure he didn't get out the door.

The hairless fad doesn't make a lot of sense. Even so, I'd love to know if Sasquatch, being of the bigfoot persuasion, has hair on her chest.

Many girls are self concious, (sorry if I spelled that wrong :3) and feel ugly / shunned / ridcoulous when they look in the mirror and see a girl with hairy arms and legs!

It itches, and gets smelly quicker if not shaved.
If a gal is not bothered by that, neither am I. :)

underarms smell more when not shaved, men don't like hairy legs on women and women tend to like clean shaven men......I personally don't care whether my man shaves or not cuz it's his underarms that need shaven but that's not gonna happen anytime soon
