>Nipple and Ass Hair

>

We are so conditioned to fear hair. Nipple hair for example, is hard to hide. Even when freshly shaved, you can taste tiny stubbly pricks that remind you that even the most beautiful women have long black nipple hairs. Is this wrong? They existed to protected the mammary glands from cold, so that your baby can have a fresh teat to suckle. And now you want them to be shaved and cleaned. But they are kind of gross, like ass hair.
Remember when that girl used to shave her pussy in the shower and then she’d make light of shaving her asshole by noting the difficulty of reaching it. You laughed along with her. Ass hair. How absurd. On one hand it’s easy to improve your hygiene by trimming or shaving it, on the other, leave that shit alone and don’t fuck with it. It’s for shitting, not sexual penetration. But in our pornographic culture, it’s more acceptable to practice butt sex than to have an asshole full of fuzziness.
So you were at first repulsed by the nipple hair, then you grew up and realized it was natural, now you are still kind of repulsed by it and view it as a cultural norm that should be obeyed: thou shalt shave thy nipple hair.
