    Default French & female armpit hair

    Somebody has to set the damn record straight. I keep hearing that some (maybe alot of "some") French ladies don't shave their armpits at all. Is this true?

    No, it's not true. Don't know why people (including some of my American friends) insist on this.

    This rumor was created back in the 80s when the American Women's movement was gaining momentum. They later realized that instead of getting equality from their fellow male counterparts, these wise men would start to look for bride in other countries, so in fear that American women would soon be mateless, they contrived the rumors of each ethnic female's falsified offending habits in hope to deter the American male from marrying abroad. Coupled with the fact that service men would meet foriegn women and leave their wives back in the states.


    Although I have no evidence to support this theory... heck.. I'll even admit I made it up on the spot... but you have to say... it sounded good =)

    lol........ That was a pretty good "theory"

    Funny how everything is stereotyped in this world..

    Just cuz a person is a certain ethnicity doesnt really mean all others of the same ethnicity are like that person in question

    Of course ... stereotyping comes from generalizations of different cultures so guess that's why everyone uses it AND I mean everyone
    Let us come together as one, for no matter how different we all are, we are the same deep down inside.

    It probably dates back to WW2 with American servicemen bringing back stories of what they saw in Europe. At the time, fashion standards were different. I remember seeing flicks of German women exercising in some 3rd Reich propaganda piece. No, they didn't shave their armpits. I'm sure it was a similar story in other parts of Europe at the time, and probably parts of the US as well.

    Of course, that was 60 years ago. Times, fashions, and standards have changed. Maybe in another 100 years, women in the western world won't look at a guy who has armpit hair or doesn't shave his legs, too.

    Some girls don't shave.In America this type of ladies is HUGE!If you put their pants down they always carry a part of the rainforest with them - Notch Johnson

    Not many girls are capable of knowing that hair doesn't fit by their image

    More than 98% of the girls I know shave all of their non-head-hair.

    may all be loved, may all be fed, may all be healed

    Yes, some (french) girls don't from time to time (as some girls in every country, i suppose).

    Or maybe a new trend going back to that 80's "Madonnas-non-shaving-era"...

    Would you guys be turned off, though? I mean what if she was the love of your life until you both went to the beach & discovered an amazon in her underarms... would that be enough for you to reconsider?

    French girls don't shave, they burn thei armpit hair rather with oil and a lighter.
