I'm well into the second year with my boyfriend and the "newness" has worn off and so I'm less diligent about ... shaving. A few months into dating, I shaved my entire lady bit area but I have a lot of hair and it grows fast and that grew very tiresome. So, I let it grow back but I kept it mostly trimmed very short. This last month I haven't been able really to navigate down there and I have felt like crap so it grew. Even when it was "full" before, I always shaved the area around the vaginal opening so that was clean. But, I really couldn't do that lately and the boyfriend and I weren't having sex because I couldn't handle the pressure on my belly. I'm feeling better now and hopefully our sex life will get back on track (lol. I didn't have sex until I was 29. I want to have a lot of sex.) I mentioned to the boyfriend if he had a preference for it being shaved or not and he didn't say yes or no only that he wasn't used to it. He watches * and I'm okay with that, but we know how they look. (And his ex's were shaved BARE). His comment was that "most people from 15-50 shave it" mostly bare. Uh. I have no idea where he got this information. (He so silly.) I like to keep the actual area around my vagina clean shaven, but not the upper part. Is it going to make that much of a difference in our sex life?
