shaved snits

are quickly becoming the norm. Take a look at a 70s Penthouse, or just take my word for it: pubic hair deflation is running rampant, for men and women alike. In ten years, all of our bodies will be completely hairless, and baldness in men will be seen as a virtue. In fact, there’s something in this that parallels Kurzweil’s vision of the exponential growth of technology – a few million years from bushy cavemen to the Cro-magnon boxes of the 70s, and now 30 years later it’s sphinxes and Brazilians all the way.

    That is really good newz. I am happy about the shaving stuff with the girls.

  2. D says:

    Yes, Roy; although I suppose ‘waxed snits’ would be more accurate. It’s just that there’s something delightful about the phrase ‘shaved snits’. Not sure where I first heard it.

  3. K says:

    .. wasn’t there a cartoon about an old couple called ‘the Big Snit’?
    -guess I sawthe PG version.

    I like the idea of baldness being sexy in ten years – that’ll be right on time.

    All this reminds me of a night I was out with my big boisterous German friend, Werner. The subject of snit/armpit shaving/waxing came up (in a roomful of guys) and he silenced them by interjecting “I prefer 11 year olds myself.” He then chastened the crowd by telling them his statement was no different from theirs. It was, of course, and that was Werner for you. But I remember thinking he was on to something when he mockingly put forth: “My God– she has hair in her armpits– that’s so disgusting, that’s so gross – how, how, how… Womanly!”

    It’s curious to me how body hair has been drained of all significance. Did it ever mean “womanly”? It used to mean “manly” but not anymore. If anything it means “cro-magnon manly”, a type of grunting scratching masculinity that most seek to avoid.

    It must have been a few years ago when gay men started trimming their bikini zones… Now the straights are picking it up. Not sure how I’d feel about doing it, myself.

  6. K says:

    Would be easier if Werner did it for you?

  7. ÿ says:

    For Werner, Womanly = All Natural.

    But now I’m thinking K is accusing me of hiding behind Werner’s views instead of offering my own. (hi K!)

    how body hair has been drained of all significance.

    I don’t know, I had to start shaving my beard in order to get across the border, so it must mean something to somebody.

    One of the sexiest woman I’ve ever known never put a razor to her body and to me it meant: I’m not going to put my energy into looking like one of those ladies from a magazine.

    As for shaving your pubes D, if you do it more than a few times, you better be in it for life, or that shit’ll start getting itchy itchy itchy!!!

    You first heard the phrase “shaved snits” when it was the title of a porno mag on sale at that little depanneur inside the La Cité complex, on the northwest corner of Parc and Prince Arthur.

  9. D says:

    ÿ: there’s nothing natural about the human body. If there was, and we wanted to stay natural, we’d all walk around with hair trailing for six feet behind us and fingernails dragging on the ground. I see shaving, or waxing, as about as unnatural as riding a bike or speaking Spanish.

    King: you da man. Must be great to have that steel-trap memory still in effect.

    Note to self:
    rent ‘Finders Keepers, Lovers Weepers’

    I stopped going out with Werner two years ago because his inflammatory rhetoric started to make me feel uncomfortable to the point of being nauseous whenever we were out in public. His comment that night was actually more interesting to me than it was offensive, but that was before I typed it into this thread. I was curious about the response it would draw, and only afterward did I grasp how rude it looked in print.

    Hey D, don’t knock hair trailing six feet behind us…

    I’ve never been that fussy about body hair… on men or women. And I’ve found that the people who are fussy are few and far between.
    There was a period of about five years when I didn’t shave my legs. My guy friends thought this was absolutely revolting (“who would want to touch you?”). But the guys that touched me didn’t care. In fact, several of them were quite complimentary about it.
    (And no, they weren’t all new-age hippies…)

    Oh, and “Finders Keepers, Lovers Weepers” is a kick-ass title.

    Women with a “full bush” are the best! I like hairy women too. Ya know, hairy armpits, legs, and pubic hair peeking out of their panties! To me, it turns me on the most! I can’t stand it when women shave their pubes off or trim it down to almost nothing. I’ve broken up with women once I undressed them and found they had no pubic hair. If I asked them to let it grow back and they refused, I told them I didn’t want to see them anymore.

    Hairy women rule!
