    I've had Brazilian waxes that included my butt and some that didn't. I've been getting waxed for about a decade, and I still prefer that my butt be waxed, even if the person I'm seeing charges more for it. I know the hair serves a purpose, but it feels so nice when it's gone!

    I got my first brazillian as an 18th birthday present. My mom took me to the spa where she gets hers and When Lisa ask me what I wanted. I said I wanted everything removed. I had a landing strip at the time and was still a virgin so no one was going to see anything but me. I had no idea she was going to start at my ears and go all the way to my toes. she even did my butthole. and labia. For some reason my butt just felt sooooo fresh. I couldn't looking in the mirror, she even took a hair off my left nipple that bothered me a lot.

    I 100% agree that no one (of any gender) should worry about their butt or pubic hair nor do I think anyone should feel pressured or think it's required to remove it, especially to appeal to a partner. That being said, I get waxed every few weeks and yes, the hair on my butt is part of the removal process. I've been waxing since 2012 and am with a partner who has no problem with pubic or butt hair. He'd be perfectly happy if I grew it out, but I love how bare skin feels, and I continue to do it for me.

    I dated a woman who was quite hairy and I encouraged her to not shave. The hair on the butt was beautiful and arousing. My erections were never firmer.

    I also have never been put off by hair on men or women. Honestly I'm more put off by lack of hair when people shave! Personally I have never done anything to my own. I think the cons (discomfort when it grows back, effort/upkeep) outweigh the pros. I have some friends that really like to keep it neat down there though and say that they do it for themselves and not their partners.

    I for one have never been put off by butt hair or pubic hair! Women have been conditioned to reject their natural bodies for far too long and I am so ready to break down that taboo!

    Women worry far too much about stuff that men never notice and doesn't bother them.

    I doubt that any man would kick a woman out of bed because of hair anywhere.

    I think so. This is often the case with many of the things women worry about, and men, too. We really have been programmed to think hair on women is gross and unacceptable, so butt hair is no exception. It just happens to be a very difficult area to "de-hair" which leaves many women feeling insecure.

    I've never heard a man complain about it. But then again, I'm not sure any man with half a brain would be unwise enough to say that outloud to a woman. Lol.
    I agree. I've never said a word to my g/f about her butt hair. I know it grows there for a good reason.

    When I began dating my g/f. she was shaven in areas she thought were supposed to be shaved including her bikini line. As we grew closer to each other, she was comfortable not being as attentive, which I willingly and happily accepted. Her being comfortable around me regardless of hair indicated trust. Trust is the foundation of an enduring relationship.

    If we talk about hair and butt hair specifically, she'll mention it. SHE has asked me to shave it for her, and that has to be love ;-).

    Butt hair "phobia" must be generational. I know I'd never mention it to any woman.
