It’s been almost three months since the last time I shaved my armpits or my legs. Three months. It’s come as a real surprise to me to discover that having a little more leg hair, and a lot more armpit hair, can be an enjoyable experience in some ways. I enjoy having hairy armpits from an aesthetic viewpoint. Trying to use my roll-on deodorant represents one of the downsides; it’s messy and the sensation isn’t pleasant.
I haven’t welcomed the fact of my fine armpit hairs ever since the first time they appeared. It’s no surprise then that I began to shave them off immediately and didn’t stop. I’m lucky in some ways because I’ve never produced that much body hair in general. That means, if I don’t get around to shaving my armpits for a couple of days, I’m not going to turn into a gorilla. Another benefit of not having to shave all that often is the avoidance of unnecessary, and distracting, skin irritation after the fact.
