Swedish stunner Gretta (above) is featured on an international site devoted to "Pits and Tits." Guess it's all about "choice" {an easy one, in this case}.

“What one woman decides to do with her body hair is her business, and hers alone,” insists British beauty editor Maria Del Russo. “For plenty of women, it’s just hair.”  

Which comely Cambridge coed Katherine Soper is happy to share (below right) … to honor Armpits4August (below left), the month-long festival of fuzz!

“The only way female body hair will stop being a statement,” shaggy student Soper surmised, “is if it’s normalized. Women with armpit bush need to be a familiar sight, not the punchline to hilarious Chewbaca quips” {in a gal•waxy far, far away}.  

And speaking of far away, this new-found freedom has even traveled to perhaps the most repressive regime on the planet: “On Sina Weibo, a popular micro-blogging site in China (below left),” the New York Post proclaimed, “the women’s rights activist known as Xiao Meili held an ‘Armpit Hair Competition,’ to protest societal pressure on women to shave under there” {don’t care, below right}.

null

“Women’s armpit hair is considered to be offensive, rude and ungraceful,” protested Xiao. “I think women’s underarm hair can be adorable, interesting, humorous, ever-changing and sexy” (below).

null

She was rewarded for her efforts with 1.7 million hits in a week … and the Weibo site “was flooded with pictures of Chinese women proudly raising their arms and showing off their armpit hair to the world.”  

Based on “likes” and “reposts,” the winner was college student Zhu Xixi (below left)—who received a prize of 100 condoms—while Wei Tingting (below right) finished third.

“When I was still heterosexual,” the victor revealed, “my boyfriend at the time just took it for granted that I would shave my armpits to wear sleeveless T-shirts.” But now she’s batting for the other team … with her blog renamed ‘Zhu Xixi loves eating fish.’” In other words, Sapphic sushi.  

“I’m even prouder of my armpit hair now!” Zhu texted … but when told by contest organizer Xiao (inset below) that her runner-up received a vibrator, joked: “My true feeling is that I wish I had won second prize.”

null

That went to hetero hottie Li Tingting, who scored points by submitting one of the few topless entries (above right). “I love my armpit hair. I hope all girls will show it off without fear,” Li laughed. “But I wanted the condoms.”  

Pressure to shave “has come from the West,” head hair honcho Xiao believes. “Women’s underarm shaving in China only has about 20 years of history, and that is because of American advertising, which has changed people’s minds.”  

Fortunately not that of web model Xin Jie … who starts off shy … and then, oh my!

null

“We’re not calling on everybody to grow underarm hair,” was the Chinese ‘takeaway’ from the contest {sorry}. “We are just saying that if some women don’t want to shave their armpits, the rest of us should not think they are not feminine enough.” Jie whiz … message sent (below)!

null

Right now, Russia poses a bigger threat to America than even China … but Moscow-born student Yasmin Gasimova wants us to know: “Being hairy isn’t scary. I might trim my pubes if I’m going on holiday, but catch me on a normal day when my armpits are bushy (below left) and you might be surprised.”

null

“You can still be sexy and hairy at the same time. If you’re trying to get laid, there are lots of guys who appreciate a hairy woman. I’m speaking from experience” (above right).  

Since her unshorn images went viral in May 2015, Gasimova grins: “I’ve had over 500 sexual requests from guys—and girls—all over the world.” While earlier she’d bristled: “We often associate hairy women with being an extreme-feminist, cat-loving lesbian ” … it appears the now self-proclaimed ‘Queer Azerbaijani’ has switched sides:

nullBut the most visible proponent of the bearded clan has made woolly women fashionable again! “Charlotte Free has bright pink hair (go finger, below left) and unshaven armpits,” declared The Guardian newspaper. “Not so strange for a teenager staying out all night clubbing; slightly more unusual for the Supermodel of the Moment.”

null

“Pink-haired model Charlotte Free, 21, is loudly feminist,” adds The Standard, “and a picture of her licking her unshaven pits (above right), by the (not so feminist) photographer Terry Richardson, has made her the face of fashionable fuzz.”  

Asked if her pit-licking pic was meant to be “a feminist statement,” the 31-24-33 mannequin maintains: “Absolutely! It’s an equal rights thing. It’s ridiculous that women have to shave their armpits every day.”

null

“I don’t have time. I think it’s asinine that men have this standard that women should be perfectly shaven—including our pussies. I like to keep my body hair. I’m not going to conform to something that’s so ridiculous.”  

Speaking of ridiculous, in the words of The Fashion Spot, “Whatever’s happening under her armpits …

null

… “it’s hard to take Free’s declarations of feminism seriously since she so willingly collaborates with Terry Richardson. The photographer’s pseudo-pornographic aesthetic is matched by a pervy public persona: The most graphic account came from Manhattan model Jamie Peck (below left), who claimed Richardson got naked and suggested she touch his penis during a photo session (below right).

null“Before I could say ‘whoa, whoa, whoa!’ dude was wearing only his tattoos and waggling the biggest dick I’d ever seen dangerously close to my unclothed person,” Peck protested after performing the requested hand job. “Granted, I hadn’t seen very many yet—I was fucking 19 and nerdy as hell, okay ?”  

Not okay, according to Charlotte: “Terry likes to do sexy stuff, that’s his shit. Don’t willingly blow the man and get all mad and ashamed later,” Free fumed—while ‘surrendering the pink’ to her powerful pal Richardson (below left).

“I hate when girls say, ‘But he asked me to.’ You should have said ‘No’ then, you stupid bitch!” Looks like she was willing to put her mouth where the money is” (above right).  

As is the woman whom Vice magazine calls ‘The Queen of Hairy Feminist Porn,’ New York-born Nikki Silver (below right).

null

“Silver recently branched out from porn and published her first coffee-table photography book, Unshaven: Modern Women, Natural Bodies (above left),” the Daily Dot declares. “The book’s beautiful portraits of hairy women range from artful to erotic …

null

… and usher the emerging hairy armpit trend to a place of legitimacy.”  

“She is a feisty New Yorker who has now found her home in the redwoods of Northern California,” the book’s Amazon.com review reads. “She continues to push the boundaries of hairy erotic art, both behind and in front of the camera. Her self-produced website, NaughtyNatural.com, took home a Feminist Porn Award in 2014.”

null

And above, she’s just as advertised: “My body hair is a deep brown/black and has been growing (untrimmed and unshaved) for 6+ years flowing all down my body,” nappy Nikki notes. “From my curly armpit hair, to my little treasure trail into my cute, ungroomed bush onto my fit thighs.”  

Silver says her older audience dates back to the Golden era of adult films: “The guys who are, like, 50 and up, when they were coming of age hair was a lot more common. The first girl they slept with, or the first porn they watched, that woman had hair.”

And a certain flair she’s willing to share:  

 

Today, Silver sighs, “Porn is so clean shaven … and there’s crazy obsession with youth, you know? I understand it in some ways. You have to push through bush, you’re moving hair apart. Things look bigger, labia look bigger. But having hair is a signifier of being sexually mature, being an adult woman. Nowadays, a lot of people have never seen a picture of a conventionally attractive woman with body hair.”

null

Which is why, Nikki notes: “Honestly, there isn’t actually a ton of work for hairy models. That’s why a lot of women escort.” Like her …openly advertising for a return to her hometown last month.

null

In fact, less than a week ago she was still “at it”—servicing clients under the name Hairy Goddess Jezebel.

null

“I am polyamorous and a nudist and have many lovers of all genders (below),” the all-natural 36D-30-39 escort begins her online introduction.

null

“I want to tell him what a good job he is doing as he licks my hairy pussy exactly in the manner I instruct him to,” dominant Nikki explains to her willing submissives. “I want to hear him gasp as I press my hairy armpit and soft breast into his face before taking his whole cock into my wet mouth.”  

And that’s not just lip service: “I’ve seen Jezebel twice,” wrote satisfied customer Freeman after a Nov. 2015 session with Silver. “Once at my place—just her—and once at her place with another guy. Both times were awesome! I just wanted to lay in bed with her all night. Really amazing.

null

“Jezebel is natural and hairy and beautiful and fun and great at what she does!”  

Sleuth tries to meet a similar standard …but ‘Wonder’ of wonders {harken back to our previous post}, all good things must come to an END.

I mean, what’s next … Hairy Potter?!!
