    It works!! It's dark and raining and I was bored. So I just waxed my legs using gaffa tape.
    It's no less painful than using wax strips, but I haven't got that 'sunburn' rash that I get with the wax strips. And you are always going to have gaffa tape aren't you?

    there's plenty around to cater for all tastes.
    even a gypsy caravan is too much settling down.

    I'm probably in a minority but I do like a bit of leg fuzz on a woman- probably because in my teens I used to see it quite a lot, but other than on my partner, not often now.

    Once heard a really awful waxing story. Was in the hairdressers which also had a beauticians. The beautician was in tears to her boss who was obviously on the other end of the phone. Jist of the conversation was that different types of wax melt at different temperatures, so say if you have two and you heat them at the same time one could be very very hot if you keep heating it until the other melted. The beautician hadn't quite enough wax to do a leg wax so she topped the wax up with a different one. The woman who was getting the wax got burned. She justifiably complained to the boss.

    Put me of waxing for life.

    Just seen Adidas have featured a pretty blonde Swedish model Arvida with hairy legs (her leg hair is certainly darker than her head hair) in their latest promotion. I think she looks stunning (maybe somebody can post a link as I never know how to do links) but the poor girl has also been inundated with hate including threats of rape. Fair enough not liking body hair burt so many people seem so threatened by something that is normal + natural. Fortunately from her blog she seems a strong character +has also received a lot of love + support to.

    H+M did a similar thing earlier this year using a model with hairy pits. Like it or not I do think it's important to see it being "normalised" so women can truly choose whether to shave/wax or not in the same way a guy can with a beard.

    I dont care what people do with their bodies or what they want to.look like.Body fascism is everywhere and a whole range of pressures from sarcasm and passive aggression to outright bullying but people shouldnt be made to feel bad or uncomfortable about what they do regardless whether thats from media critics or hippys or what context its said or whether they themselves prefer natural or groomed appearance.
    I know the comment was meant with humor but why do people feel it necessary to criticise or even draw attention to what someone else is doing with their body.?
    People dont always shave or trim or wax for appearance sake or fashion,sometimes its for practical or skin health reasons but regardless its no one elses business
    I think most women.are tough enough to choose for themselves how they wsnt to look.
    Theres not actually a great deal of difference between the criticism of a model for having hairy legs as hippys infering youre not a real hippy unless you go all natural and have hairy bodies and grow beards (women included).

    I don't think there is anything wrong with a little leg hair on a woman. I certainly don't think women need to go to expense and pain. Well, only if they are doing it for themselves. No woman should feel pressurised into doing it.

    No
    I quite agree what I do
    Feel is a bit off now is the fact that society now is expecting women to shave in between her legs I personally donít want my partner if I had one looking like an 8 year old please let me hear what you all think about this
