Sweating
« on: 24/01/2006 19:32:51 »
Rumour has it / Word on the street is that removing all the hair from your armpits (or anywhere hairy) by waxing them will stop or greatly ruduce sweating in the specified area. If I were to wax my armpits would I sweat less or just get bullied for being a wussy?

The problem is, you will start with your armpits then sooner or later it will be your groin then your legs and lastly your arms.

In the end you will have to make one more decision either accept it when people call you a wuss or move to sweden

People still get sweaty palms even though there are no hairs there

I think you should try it Mark and let us know how you get on !:)

Before and after pictures will be nice too.

Failing that, try attaching sponges to each armpit with a rubber band !

A picture of that will also be nice.

:D

Men are the same as women.... just inside out !!

Sorry Ray but your opinion doesnt count in this instance as your obviously biased towards all things feminine .

You've readily admitted  that for nine years you were a member of the SAS  

The Save Are Sister's campaign group. :D

i have not tried waxing, but i have shaved my armpits and find it does reduce the amount i sweat. i am guessing this is due to less heat insulation in the specified region.  i may consider waxing, my girlfriend says it last longer
