For some time I could snicker and claim no, that's only in Europe. These days, I think it applies to the US as well.
In any case, body hair on women is still gross to me personally. I do like that prepubescent erm.. Baldur knows the correct word.. blond (velveta?) hair that appears as fur on some prepubescent girls. That's actually quite appealing.
Yeah, No. Older women clearing out their hair is a poorly contrived substitute for looking prepubescent.
(Asian women who already look like legit 11-year-olds into their 30's being the one obvious exception of course.)
