A question for any woman who doesn't remove her body hair.
I love my leg hair, and I love swimming:
How do you deal with public baths?
- Do people even notice?
- If they notice, do they care?
- If they care, has that ever affected you?
I don't mind walking about outside looking like this, because some animal part of me thinks that at least I'm free to 'run away' from any issues; however, the enclosed space of public baths... I'm also conscious of being darker and hairier than the locals who are all pretty pale (there are literally like only 3 other foreigners in this entire town)
All other swimming I've done is in lakes and rivers, where being hairy feels completely natural and is an advantage- no razor nicks to get infected.
What are your experiences with public swimming baths?
