I wrote earlier in the week of how, after 20 years of not shaving, I’d attacked myself with some depilatory cream and scissors and adopted a ‘smooth’ look.
In some ways it feels great, in others I’m not so certain about it, although any change in hairstyle, anywhere, sometimes requires some getting used to.
I also wrote earlier in the summer of how ‘girl fur is back, but not to 1970s jungle levels’. I was wrong.
Out by the pool is a rather hippy couple. He with long curly hair reaching to his waist and her… with wild, untamed girl fur on display. Both of them looked beautiful.
While I’m not sorry I’ve gone (temporarily) smooth -it has been interesting to have slightly different sensations of the air on bare skin for example – I expect to be going back to my usual look.
I prefer it.
And equally, whether smooth or natural, it’s terrific that others feel the same way, happy to be themselves within naturism and, as usual, no one judges.
