I actually do shave pubs and armpits too.
I started to see how it looked. I liked it.
Also, in summer especially, less sweat, and definitely less odor. Not having pubs I do not have bad smelling anymore, underwear or not. So two reasons for doing it : feels and look better, way better in summer, not smelly anymore.
I do not think youre too much of minority. I had no girls (while dating) saying anything to me when they saw me. It has never changed a thing.
The idea is interesting but I've never tried. I'd want to pluck rather than shave to avoid any stubble, but haven't thought it worthwhile to push through the pain barrier. I probably should try at least once. Full commitment, though - once started I guess I'd have to finish both sides lest I leave myself assymetrical.
My wife routinely attacks hers with her electric epilator.
I've done it for many years. It cuts way down on odor as a few have said who replied here. I do not shave that just creates itchy stubble. I bought an epilator and its the best thing I've ever purchased to remove hair. Yes some places are way to sensitive to use it but for underarms and legs , nothing better, unless you can afford laser or electrolysis.
I am not a very hairy guy. That said, I get the total Brazilian wax about every 6 weeks. I love the clean smooth look. I live in Arizona, I sweat . I began trimming under arms last summer. My hair is thin on my head so I use an electric razor to clean up every two weeks. At the same time I run thru the pits.
