    How about arm pits? I tend to sweat like a sasquatch under the arms when I am out in warmer places and its kinda gross and a lil embarrasing at times. If I shaved my pits would that remedy things a lil? I don't have mullets in my pits like Darryl but they also arent no 13 year olds pits.

    Input?

    Shaving won't do nothing to the pits except make them look prettier in a faggish way.

    Wanna stop the sweating? Move to the North Pole.

    I'd venture to say you will sweat MORE shaving your pits. I have shaved a region of my body, that after doing so, sweat a LOT worse than it did previouslly. Also became uncomfortable. I figure the hair keeps stuff from sticking together and allows air pockets, which in the end actually cools things off. Thats the way it works in my mind anyway, never tried shaving my pits. They are the one form of body hair, I really don't give a **** about. But I'm also not really hairy there and don't sweat much overall.

    I use the Old Spice chalky stuff. It seems to get me through summer days rather well, when nothing else will last.

    See anti-persprents seem to make me sweat more. Maybe I am allergic to them or something. So far the best results have been from the good ol Italian Power Shower (otherwise known as Axe) Seem to keep them the dryest.

    Well I am goin on the advice of a PM I got and I shaved the pits down to about 1/4" of hair. Enough that it still looks like there is lots of hair but short enough that I dont look like a Yeti. I also trimmed the entire upperbody to the same 1/4". Imma sexy Bitch :D

    I hope it is long enough that it is past the itch stage. Or I will be scootin along the ground like a dog with an itchy ass :haha:

    Kinda soft like a short haired dog actually. Any shorter and I think it would have been bad.

    I tried shaving the pits once a few years back. Then I got too lazy to shave them all the time and they itched for an entire month as they grew back. I'll never do that sheeit again. :doah:

    I think if they were shaved bald it would be a nightmare as they dont breathe very much and are covered for a majority of the time. Thats why I went with the trim.

    see your wife shaves to the skin right? This is a mere trim to still have hair there. If I lifted my arm you wouldnt notice any diffrence but I loped like an inch of hair off to get rid of the Darryl-esque pit mullets.
