  • Butt Hair.... :(

    WHI Editor's Note: For the latest discussion on butt hair, why we have it, and how to remove it, join us here!

    I've noticed I have black hair in my butt crack since I began puberty. I never tried to shave it, for fear it would be stubly and itchy. I'm very very self-conscious about it and although my boyfriend loves my butt, I'm terrified that he's going to somehow see inside my buttcrack. If it was blonde hair it wouldn't be such a problem, but I have very light skin and very dark body hair. I live in a small town and there aren't any waxing places around. I want to get laser hair removal butt can't afford it. Am I the only one with this problem? I've seen and heard about guys who have hairy butt cheeks and cracks, but never girls. Any ideas??

    • Dont worry, it is alot more common that we think. I also thought i was the only one
      I think it is pretty common amongst ethnic women (and men).
      I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING and have found that waxing has rrrrrreally reduced the hair on all private parts. The catch is that you have to do it regularly, every 4 weeks or so.
      I have shaved once or twice but the results were so temporary. And in grown hairs are so painful and unsightly.
      I tried laser treatments (at 300 bucks a pop) and it didn't work for me, i had to go back 3 times, $900 dollars later and i was still fuzzy wuzzy.
      So i am a true beliver in a brazilian wax. the women who do it are used to it, keep in mind that they chose this as their profession, so for them to care would be... well odd
      plus when you show up at your boyfriends house with close to no hair down there they will forget that you have booty hair. (I highly doubt that if you have hair on your booty that your boy hasnt notices, they are just being nice)
      its this helps u out

        You're not the only one. I've had it since puberty as well.
        Everyone does. And if they say they don't, they're lying.
        I barely even think of it, and I tried to shave it once. Unless you like having to shave blindly, (I do NOT recommend this) every few days, I wouldn't.
        You could get it waxed when (if?) you go in for bikini waxes. Or just ignore it. It's no big deal.

        • Some like it, some don't. I hate body hair and have had good success w/ laser then getting the stragglers w/ electrolysis. Both processes are expensive and painfull, but what good things are not?

          • It's common to have a hair crack with dark haired girls

            I do find it a little off putting to provide oral etc.

            I find it hard to believe there is no where in your small town, the hairdresser may know someone.

            Alternatively you can buy hot wax kits over the internet. Personally I'd go for a couple of professional treatments out of town first 'cos it's hard waxing yourself.

            • I think it is normal though, Had some too but what can we do to prevent it? Nothing and all we can do is to reduce and make the hair grows slowly.

              • I also think it's more common that people admit it is (I also have it and try to shave often).

                I just find it so unfair that it's totally OK for men to have a fur but it's considered a turn off for a woman to have hair in natural places that is difficult to get rid of. We were born with body hair too, it's not a male privilege... I hate having to spend 30 mins every time I shower just to get rid of hair, it's a waste of time.

                • i am a 35 yr old male. i have seen women who have been HAIRY down there that you needed a lawnmower for it. trimmed, shaved, hair around nipples, whatever the case may be. i myself have hair on my back. not alot but enough that i have a complex. on the butt crack hair i look at it like this. ALL have it, it is not much unless you are a ape, nobody cares unless you are into salad tossing and have poo in it because you did not wipe or are dirty. hope that helps.

                    All Asian girls I have been intimate with have dark hair and none of them had more than a few butt hairs.

                    As a guy, natural is OK with me.
                    I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience.

                    Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

                    • It's unfortunate that this is another area where a double standard has developed. It's perfectly natural for both men and women to have body hair, and it's much more a sign of physical and sexual maturity than it is of masculinity. Yet now we're moving more and more to a position where any body hair on a woman is gross and dirty. I can't understand that at all, because anyone with good basic hygiene practice is not going to be dirty... that also goes for women with hair under their arms, on their legs, on the stomachs, on their behinds, and so forth.

                      While I can't say that a lack of hair is a turn off for me, it's almost to the point where I find female body hair more and more interesting and even somewhat of a turn on, just because it is becoming more and more rare.

                      • I have hair in my butt crack too. Its normal!

                        • I'd like to meet the person that birthed the idea female body hair is disgusting and unnatural... and slap them upside the head.

                          Comment


                          • Natural yes, appealing...not so much. Compare the two: smooth bare skin to that obvious fuzz-prickle-something is there feeling when hair is present. I have hair all over my body as well and there is nothing I would love more than to have it all taken off but since I do not have $1000's of dollars of disposable income to do that there is nothing to do but unfortunately deal with it.
                            There are those who believe that dictionaries should not merely reflect the times but also protect English from the mindless assaults of the trendy.

                            • **runs hand over hairy butt**

                              Nope, doesn't bother me. But that might be because I'm just so used to it.
