A film 'Secret Garden' examines the issue, here's a preview
Meanwhile The Mirror is shocked by the display of female body hair, as the headline reveals:
'Madonna's not the only one to flaunt hairy armpits - here's more famous faces who forgot to shave'
Here's that shocking Madonna image...
It's interesting that The Mirror believes that women must have forgotten to shave, not made a conscious choice.
The rest of that article is so censorious:
Here's that hair that so 'horified fans''The usually immaculate Beyonce rocked up to a film premiere in 2008 with a veritable bush sprouting from her left armpit.Seemingly unaware of the hairy situation, she waved to horrified fans at the opening of Cadillac Records.With rap-star hubby Jay-Z clinging proudly to her other arm, the stubble trouble went unnoticed by him as well.'
That Mirror article goes on to draw attention to Britney Spears:
'Britney Spears had a red-faced moment of her own at the 31st Annual American Music Awards.
Here's a picture of that 'hefty amount of hair'Looking absolutely stunning in a glittery cream dress, all eyes were swept up to under her arm as soon as she lifted it to laugh.All eyes.The singer had a rather hefty amount of hair growing under there - we would seriously say it hadn't seen a razor for weeks.'
Then there's Drew Barrymore:
'Drew Barrymore was spotted down Lexington Avenue in New York with a whole lot of fuzz on show.Her low-cut black dress did nothing to save the situation unfortunately.'
The Mirror then go on to include Lily Allen:
'Lily Allen is known for her, erm, bold nature, but we can't imagine she intended to show off any underarm hair.She was pictured on stage in a knee-length dress and decided to stick her arm up in the air to say hi to the crowd.Oops.'
So underarm hair on a women is 'skanky'? Nice going The Mirror.'And it wasn't the first time it happened to the hard Out Here singer either.She was pictured again in 2008 letting her inner skank out.Not only did the singer appear to have ditched her bra, but she seemed to be sporting a new manly, underarm hair look. Urgh!'
In researching this atricle I came across some odd articles and pictures that may be of interest; here's one.
There also appears to be quite a lot of porn related to underarm hair but most show other.... areas of the female body that would not sit well on this site. So here's a link to a clean example here and one to a site that is called hairy pits 'n' tits, so definitely NSFW.
