I think its just good hygiene. I wish men could shave every where and not look like serial killers or olympic swimmers. I ONCE shaved almost my whole
body, and I didnt even really need deodorant. I didnt sweat as much. You would be surprised how much that extra fur heats up your body.
Problem was when it grew back in....bad week....
There is allot of stuff we do for fashion or to appear more civilized. Like when Russia was forced to shave its long beards by czar Peter the great.
He wanted to make his country not look so backwards. He made it illegal to have a long crazy beard. He spent some time in Europe living incognito and
saw how negatively Russia was seen for its traditionalism so he revised everything Russian, even the taboo tradition of long beards showing wisdom and
social status as an elder.
Something else that falls into hygiene and is strange is circumcision. It is just horrible. Think about it. I will cut off part of your penis so you
have all your glands exposed, nice huh?.....OMG! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU DOC!?
We do strange things to our bodies, but ultimately they serve a purpose. I personally like the lesser stink of well shaven bodies....
