My DH is a hairy man…I like the hair on his chest and his arms, and I tell him that, but it’s the hair on his shoulders and back and behind that kind of turn me off!
I’ve kind of nicely in a light joking way asked him to shave it or wax it, but he thinks it’s a nuisance. I remind him that I have to shave my legs.
He waxes his back and shoulders in the summer when we are at a pool or on vacation, but at home he just leaves it. I can’t even snuggle up against him in bed because the hair from his shoulder tickles my face!
But he doesn’t really know that it’s a turn off for me…..how do I get him to get rid of that hair and do it regularily without hurting his feelings?

Maybe offer to help him with it? I don’t know how you would feel about waxing at home for him, and I know it’s not the same, but FI is pretty hairy also and he has some dark hairs on his back so I’ll take some time to pluck them for him. It makes him less self conscious that I don’t mind it & if I do it for him, he’s more on attentive about taking care of it. Maybe, rather than telling him that you don’t like it & want it taken care of, try to see if there’s any role you can take to help him take care of it?

I got my FI a personal shaver as a gift one year. He’s not super hairy really but I appreciate it when he cleans up a bit down there like me! He took the hint & now enjoys using it occasionally & seeing how long it’ll take me to notice his new “look”…

@ifoundmyprince: Yeah, I would just do it for him.
If he asks just tell him nicely that you don’t like it. My SO would probably initially be upset but he wouldn’t really take offense. My SO has a little hair on his back and I waxed it for him once but he was allergic to the wax strips (oops!) so we haven’t done that again. haha he doesn’t have that much though
