    Shaving doesn't have any effects on the odor and men are better looking with their armpit hair.

    There have been many, many threads about this issue and I always find it strange how angry/nasty/judgmental some people get if people don't do it the way they expect guys to do it. People should be able to do with their bodies whatever they want as long as it does not cause harm to others. Just be you...braid it, shave it, or dye it...whatever! You don't normally see people get upset over people shaving their head and people can easily see that. icon_smile.gif

    I don't see people getting disgusted over this being much different than people in Russia getting disgusted over 2 guys holding hands.

    I'm really particular about arm pit hair. Some guys pits look perfect and drive me crazy. Others just disgust me. Of course I don't expect anyone to change their grooming habits to fit my taste. icon_cool.gif

    It's become an annoying trend, and I see a lot of guys doing it. IMO it's stupid, unless you're about to go on stage as a bodybuilding competitor.

    Plus, it's gotta be uncomfortable. I trim, and the few times I've trimmed my pit hair too closely, I've found my armpits to start feeling sticky. The skin-on-skin just feels sticky.

    Overly bushy armpits don't always look attractive, but shaving them completely looks unnatural and not very masculine. A moderate amount of hair under there is sexy in my opinion. Especially when the guy has a nice muscular build.icon_cool.gif

    Agreed. My own hair becomes extremely long and straggly, not attractive. So I trim it shorter with an electric Bodygroom about once a month. Not shaved, just trimmed to about an inch or so. Still looks normal male, without looking like I could do a ponytail.

    I have to keep mine clipped. Ever since I moved to Florida 20 years ago I get a nasty rash every spring and all through the summer if I don't. Tried everything else. This was last resort. But it worked.

    I like it when the guys at the gym compare each others pit hair.

    I can prove you wrong really easy on that. I can't use deodorant or antiperspirant. It causes cysts under my arms, even after one day. So, I have keep my pits really clean between showers. If I don't trim the hair, they'll be stinky in less than 30 minutes after a shower. Trimming my pits eliminates the odor so I can go all day without stinking, even with heavy cardio.

    After moving to Florida my underarms got a terrible rash, finally started bleeding. I had to stop all antiperspirant. But I guessed it might also be associated with my cancer treatment at the time.

    It's known that antiperspirants containing aluminum compounds can cause a rash in some people, and I guessed my medical treatments were making me more susceptible. I don't know if Florida was a factor.

    So after a couple of months of using nothing to let the rash heal I tried a deodorant only, not an antiperspirant. One that said it was hypoallergenic. And started using soaps that were supposed to help control odor.

    Did the trick. My underarms are still healed, and I have no odor. If you're using an antiperspirant you might look into that possibility.

    Ah, I didn't make myself clear there. I'm speaking through a personal experience as you do.
    I used to attend a swimming lesson, which lasted around a year and six months and my coach needed me to shave all my body hair during that time. There wasn't any noticible difference when I have zero body hair, beside on the appearance. I believe body odor, including the smell of the armpit, is strongly associated with diets rather than the hair itself.

    My former neighbors, the whole family stink a lot as their daily diets consisted a lot of different spices and herbs, like garlic and chilli.

    There one thing I need to note for those with body hair, including butt hair, armpit, everywhere. lol Dry yourself thoroughly and be keen on the hygiene, or else it's gonna trap the odor.

    The hair traps odor, but doesn't create it.

    I shave my pits about once/month. Clean feel. Clean look. But I don't mind if guys don't, as long as they keep it under some control.

    This. Who cares what you do with your armpit hair? Do what makes you feel comfortable. If you like it long, keep it long. If you like it short, trim or shave it. Done. There is nothing inherently feminine about shaving any part of your body. Get over it.

    Funny thing is, when bodybuilders shave for competition it doesn't even register with me that they're missing armpit hair. Yet they still look like MEN. And probably smell like them, too. Go figure.

    Shaved, overgrown, trimmed, etc.--all armpits serve the same function.

    Trim, don't shave. That short-hair itch is not worth it. But seeing an otherwise neatly adorned man lift his arms and reveal a rooster comb of dew and deodorant flecks is definitely a turnoff.

    Oh, but now the women are wearing their hair out. Yeeeeaaah, that's a glaring red flag of narcissistic pseudo-feminism.
