    I feel like with the Sexpertise question it wasn't that he wanted to be creepy or anything, it sounded to me like, he was maybe just trying to come to terms with the fact that his girlfriend wanted to have some sort of relations with someone other than him. And perhaps the only way he would be comfortable with it was to be there as well. Maybe he wants to let her explore that other side but doesn't necessarily want his girlfriend being with someone other than him. Whether they are a guy or a girl.

    I hate this sudden aversion to things that "society has conditioned us to do" as if that automatically makes it a bad thing. The fact of the matter is body modification is a part of our biology. We modify ourselves both to stand out from others (tattoos in the US) and to fit in (hair trimming). It's not society that's conditioned us to do it, it's our biology. Society just chose how to express that biology through collective agreement.

    30 years ago having a bush was normal for women (see the Demi Moore 1981 bush pic if you MUST). Then some women started trimming that hair to stand out or just because they thought it was more neat and orderly and liked it. And the trend caught on. Nobody TOLD these women to do this, they just started doing it voluntarily. And as a result, having trimmed pubic hair became the norm. Bathing suits started being tailored to this norm. If you have want to  a big, hairy bush you have to accept that you can't wear the latest fashion in bikini bottoms at the same time because they are tailored to the NORM. Or you have to accept that your bush is going to show that that's gonna look a bit unusual since visually it just doesn't look good. The torso doesn't smoothly transition into the bikini pattern instead you get this weird mess of hair just before the pattern and it ruins the transition visually. Also, since trimming the hedges has become the norm some just see it as the hygienic choice or some just see it the same way as they see messy, untrimmed hair on your head. Wouldn't you judge someone for not getting hair cuts or brushing their hair from time to time? So why not the same for other hair?

    So why the aversion to a behavior that became the norm do to the en mass voluntary choice of people? Maybe the aversion is just how the trends change. Maybe the aversion drives people to do something different and that becomes the new norm. But it seems to me more like people trying to make political statements over the natural choices people make and then people who trust those people making the political statements parrot that political statement with little critical evaluation of the subject.

    So I have had crazy facial hair issues since I was a kid my mom started to bleach my uni-brow and mustache when I was 5/6 and then my mom started to use Nair on me when I hit 8 up until like middle/high school then used wax. So I can vouch that Nair is shit and I hated it that being said my mom also accidentally used leg Nair on my face and it burned the hair away for a while which sucked. Also I am one of those folks that says fuck society and grow all my hair out legs and under arms I try to keep the nether regions trimmed but I also identify as agender/genderfluid so this conversation about manscaping and landscaping was a cool insight for me to figure out both.

      AT LEAST groom around the vagina... it makes it so unpleasant to give oral if you get flyaways in your mouth.

    A feminine version for 'manscaping' could easily be 'monscaping', as in the Mons Pubis. It's typically the area that is tended to, after all.

    In regards to the 2nd question, the guy most likely just wants a shot at a threesome. Lot of guys give a girl that window on the condition of partaking, watching, or picture/video evidence. But a true man gives a woman five minutes and props!!


    Josh didn't give me an Eleven Little Roosters announcement, but he gave me a lesson in being one smooth, hairy gentleman.

      The threesome is often an opportunity people want but really shouldn't have with a significant other. I'm sure it can work out depending on the people but it opens up a whole lot of cans of worms that I personally would not want to deal with ever again.


      Moral of the story, bang with caution, my friend.

      Or be polygamous, your call.

    Personally, I like that sweet spot right between completely hairless and werewolf on a man. Hairless freaks me out and makes me self conscious of my own body hair. I can't be the hairier one of the two of us.


    As a regular user of hair removal cream, yes, Nair is some serious crap formula. I tested it once on a spot on my calf, and for the rest of the week I had this quarter sized red mark on my leg. I do use Veet though. If you get the Aloe Vera Veet, it works great. It takes me like a minute to put it on, I dick around on my phone for about seven minutes at most, and I scrape it all off and use a towel to get the extra. I don't think there's a single part of my body I haven't used Veet on, even the downstairs.

    Thank you Josh - really nailed it, even down to the 3 guard on the electric shaver - I'm about 1:1 hairy with you man, solidarity. My ex girlfriend thankfully loved the lumberjack thing, and she used to joke about getting me waxed especially the butt.... I told her we could just skip that part and she could peel the skin off me some other way before she took me to the hospital cuz that's what would happen ripping it all off like that  anguished

    I don't think I accept the "that's just the way I am" or the "I'm just that type of person that xyz" as reasoning not to like something.  Means you don't know why, i.e that you don't have a reason.

    As a hairy guy, I totally get what Josh is talking about. My girlfriend always wants me to trim and shave, but I keep telling her that if I only do the junk totally hairless, it's going to look ridiculous against my legs and such, and eventually I'm going to end up spending three hours a day shaving everything

    Josh looks a lot like Brian from Game Grumps. Also, I kind of like how Muriel walked in right at the start and everyone greeted her. It made the opening of the podcast feel more natural. Maybe it's something to explore in future episodes where Barb is at the table and the guests walk in and sit down.

    I feel like with the Sexpertise question her boyfriend is thinking of it as more of a performance for him to enjoy than his girlfriend exploring her own personality? Which is kind of weird and creepy.


    Also would like to say casual reminder that just because you haven't been with someone of a certain gender doesn't invalidate your sexuality, you don't have to immediately try sex with a woman just because you're not sure if you like it, you have a whole entire life to experience things.
