Can't take my eyes off of you...

Hilarious post at Counago and Spaves that almost matches Jane's bingo tale for making me giggle. Reminds me of a time Cloud and I were out in Nottingham and a full strip show took place in the area we were sat in. A gang of blokes (one birthday boy I think) had moved into the area not long before, looked over at Cloud and me and clearly thought we were a pair of well-adjusted sexually functional persons able to cope with the display of the female form. I deliberately didn't avert my eyes or seek refuge in my pint, or move out of the section of the pub (which would have been slightly difficult given the circle of blokes she was performing to). The most I could say in response to the event was that she looked as bored as f***.

Oh yeah. And, I'm sorry, but how do blokes get off on that whole shaven thang? It's like a return to Victorian values.

I thought it was something initiated by women so they could wear thongs.

Like anal bleaching.

EEUCH!!!!

Okay, that image is just gonna make me itch...

So, topics to my blog: "strip show", "shaven thang", "thong" and "anal bleaching"

If those don't get the page view numbers up I don't know what will.

John, I'm becoming gradually aware of an enormous pressure on women today to shave, just to be acceptable. Indeed, apparently a common view is developing that public hair on a woman in unhygienic. (although nobody seems to be suggesting the same for men, and you can bet your life that they still all want blow jobs).

It makes me VERY MAD.

I refuse to shave my bits. I tried it once. It was NO FUN and I suffered the consequences for weeks afterwards. And that was just my bikini line. I have hair protruding from my swimming costume and I DON'T CARE.

So there.

Indeedy.

Having spent many years noting that my women friends spend copious amounts of time shaving various bits of their bodies - only to see the hair grow back more vigourously than before - I take the stance that I keep shaving to a minimum and especially avoid any pubic shaving.

Hmm. Re-reading this post it sounds as if I engage in pornographically stimulating observations of my girlfriends shaving. Oh well, I'll let those of you so inclined keep that image, but for the sake of my reputation can I just clarify that I was largely referring to eyebrows, armpits and legs.
