    There are an existence of "women" who doesn't shave their leg. What would be your first judgement/impression? Are you disgusted? Do you assume that their personal hygiene are bad?

    I think they should let their hair grow long and knit themselves a pair of permanent pantyhose. Okay, I do like it when wifey has extra smooth legs

    I don't mind hair wherever it may be found or find it disgusting. I have known a number of ladies who don't shave and for most of them it was simply an issue of wanting to be more natural and/or just not wanting to bother with the constant shaving. None of them had poor hygiene.

      Of course you can have high hygiene and be very clean even if you never shave your legs, pubic hair or under the arms, this misconception of hairy women being unclean is not true, my wife never shaved anything off and she has hygiene principles.

    I think it is a matter of preference. I do not see it as a sign of bad personal hygiene. I like to shave my legs. Some cultures do not follow this practice. While I admit that my initial reaction might be "Yuck...hairy legs!", as long as someone showers and bathes, I do not see a hygiene issue.

    nasty and lazy is what i think. i don't mean if a woman goes a little while without shaving but the ones who just don't shave give me the creeps.

      What if shaving legs are against the person culture? Would you still considered disgusting, nasty, or lazy?

      that would be different. i would only consider is nasty, i never said disgusting.as for it being part of their culture, then it really isn't up to them so laziness would have nothing to do with it.

      I have always had a lot of hair on my arms and legs but as it feels like silk and poses no health issues for me so I quite enjoy it.  I sometimes thin it out for Summer due to the heat.

    No offense to non-shavers but I think "ick!". Don't get me wrong because there are definitely times that I don't shave my legs because I live alone but if I'm going out or going to be in the presence of others I shave. And there are plenty of times when I am disgusted with myself and have to shave.

    I think it also depends on how hairy a person is. I'm not a hairy person. It takes a while for hair to show up on my legs. But once I feel or see more than stubble I'm ready to wack it off! It's just a matter of how lazy I am before I decide to do so.

      That's OK NiaG  if their is only a very light amount of hair, don't bother, but if it become very noticeable, either wear dark tights, slacks, jeans or shave it off.
