  • Help Help Help! (Please!) Bum Hair?!

    Hey everyone, I'm new to this site, and I was reading up on a few threads about this general topic but I'm still putting this out there.

    When I was 13, I noticed some body hair coming through. We're talking stomach, back, and worst of all, bum. Obviously this is part of my heritage (I'm half Portuguese, but light skinned) So I shaved it all. In retrospect it was a bad idea, but I didn't know better and DEFINITELY won't talk to mom about it.

    I'm now 18 and, when I got fed up with my stomach hair being so dark and noticeable against my skin, I used some Nair cream to see what the result would be. My treasure trail is still there, I think I'm just going to stick to trimming it, but otherwise, the hair is now lighter and, though still noticeable, doesn't make me feel so self-conscious.

    What DOES make me feel self-conscious, though, is my bum. It's pretty bad. I thought I'd shave it again a few years later, so now the hair is darker, thicker, and looks SO nasty. It's worse because my sister keeps pointing it out to me! And it's not just between the cheeks (i.e., pubic hair), it's on the cheeks, too.

    My boyfriend is an man but I'm scared to death of letting him see or touch it, since I myself am not even comfortable with touching my bum when I'm masturbating.

    I thought about using my Nair cream again, but I'm not sure...

    Any opinions? Please!

    • Hey Caitsaur!

      Well there was me thinking I was the only woman in the world with bum hair!! Lol!! I use nair on my belly as well. It grows back lighter, I used to shave it, but I was giving my partner a run for his money in the belly hair department!! lol! Have you got hair on your lower back too? I have.

      As for the butt, I have shaved it before, but now I don't bother, too much work! I've been with my partner for 3 years now, and for the first two years I wouldn't let him anywhere near it, except when I was wearing pants, but no way if I was naked! But eventually I just got sick of hiding it, and just told him that I'd a hairy and was very ashamed of it. And guess what he said?? "Ya I know" So all my efforts were useless! He loves me the way I am. Hopefully your boyf will be as understanding.

      I've never used Nair on my butt, I'd say it would be alright on the cheeks not sure about between. Have you thought about getting it waxed?

        OMG I can't imagine how painful that would be in between. A brazillian is misery enough.
        Do not dwell in the past,
        do not dream of the future,
        concentrate the mind on the present moment.
