Fitness Blogger Reveals What Happens When You Don’t Shave Legs And Pits For 1 Year To Promote Natural Beauty

Though women’s liberation movement started around the 1960s in Europe, we still need to put in a lot of effort to reach the real gender equality. And ladies, being creative creatures, can find many ways to attract the attention to their problems. One of those ways is the new trend of hairy women, and Morgan is one of these brave ladies.

Fitness blogger Morgan Mikenas probably saves a fortune in razors. She also apparently has a lot more free time than many of us. Why? Because to promote natural beauty, the fitness model and blogger has gone an entire year without shaving her body, and here are the results of her au naturel hair trend experiment.

“I’m not trying to make all of humanity stop shaving their hairy armpits and leg hair anymore,” said Morgan in a clip she posted to YouTube recently. “I just want to inspire others [to do] what works for you, what makes you feel the most comfortable.” Citing time as the number one reason behind her decision to stop shaving body hair, she was also inspired to let it grow out after being bullied in gym class when she was 11 or 12 for having hairy legs. She decided to embrace her natural beauty instead of subscribing to what society expects of her, and she says that her boyfriend likes it and thinks that she looks beautiful either way. “I want everybody not to feel ashamed of themselves,” she said. “I think it’s unfair that people think they have to be in this cultural norm. Just do whatever makes you feel good.” It might not be for everybody, but kudos to Morgan for standing up for what she believes in. Check out the full video on YouTube, which has already been viewed over 200k times.

Shaving your legs and armpits takes a lot of time and effort

So fitness blogger Morgan Mikenas decided to stop shaving her body for a year

“I’m not trying to make all of humanity stop shaving their armpits and leg hair anymore,” she said

“I just want to inspire others [to do] what works for you, what makes you feel the most comfortable”

The main reason she stopped is that shaving takes so much time

She was also inspired to let it grow out after being bullied at school for having hairy legs

“I want everybody not to feel ashamed of themselves”

“I think it’s unfair that people think they have to be in this cultural norm”

“Just do whatever makes you feel good”

What do you think? Would you give it a try?

So downvote away, but as an experiment, I've tried growing out my body hair, and it didn't make me feel liberated at all. In fact the process is itchy, and makes me sweat more. I found in the end, I just don't like body hair on men OR women. It's just a preference, to each their own, but I'm personally turned off by lots of body hair regardless of gender.

I actually agree with you. I'm a lesbian, so I haven't been conditioned by men to think any kind of way towards women. But for me personally, one of the things I love about a woman's body is how soft and smooth her skin is. I'm all for equality, but I like that women AREN'T like men, the sense that they shave their bodies. It's also a preference, just like there are some straight women who prefer a clean shaved male face, to a bearded one.

She's beautiful, our adult brains are conditioned to find hair in women, ugly; but I bet a toddler wouldn't mind/find it disgusting. So that's not an instinct, it's not how we are, it's what society has taught us to be. So good for her. Bravo! ...But seriously I didn't know a woman could grow that much hair :D

Yep, my legs look like my husband's when I don't shave (which is my norm). I think when a lot of women talk about how they prefer to shave because it's not that much trouble don't realize HOW MUCH shaving some women have to go through to get smooth. Sometimes you literally have to shave twice even with a sharp razor on areas like your thighs. God help me if I have to shave my thighs....my body doesn't twist that way LOL.

i also have thick dark hair on the inside and back of my thighs, nice to see i'm not the only girl who does. though i always shave mine out of embarrassment. she may also have PCOS like i do, or it may just be her genetics, but regardless it's pretty rude to make fun of someone for having it. some of these comments piss me off.

"Just do whatever makes you feel good." She's following her own advice, and shaping her eyebrows and not shaving makes her feel good. It's not a "go all out or don't even bother" kind of thing.

I had a girlfriend that went to an all girl's Catholic school about 50 years ago, and they had a strict rule of You Will Shave Your legs and pits. The school uniform was a skirt, blouse , crew socks and loafers. The girls decided to band together and buck the shaving rule ...They let the hair around their ankles grow out ! Their socks covered it so the nuns didn't see it . According to my friend one of the staff caught sight of the furry anklet and hauled them all in for a communal shave session. She said they had some impressive results before that happened. As an over 65 woman I've noticed that the hair doesn't grow as fast on the legs and pits now. I do however have to deal weekly with the facial hair that is plaguing me since I generate no hormones any longer... Let's hear it for old age and all the joys it brings...ARGH!

"Just do whatever makes you feel good". She's following her own advice, and maybe plucking and makeup and not shaving makes her feel good. It's not a "go all out or don't even bother" kind of thing.

It's a generational thing, as well. For example, for me shaved armpits and legs on women are normal, but shaved men look weird to me and shaved privates even more so. To me, a big bush is the sign that a woman is mature and not a girl anymore. For people older than me hairy legs are fairly normal and for people younger than me hairless bodies for both genders are normal. Personally, I think the beauty industry is heavily promoting any look that costs money to maintain. White, even teeth, hairless skin, toned bodies - all this takes time and money to create and maintain. It's good that some people out there are rocking the boat a bit - even if they have to be young and stunningly beautiful to get away with it :-)

I have neuropathy in my legs and feet, so shaving my legs usually ends up in peeling skin and blood loss! Now that I'm menopausal, thankfully most of my body hair is either gone, or very fine, but I've never been a regular shaver. It just doesn't matter to me. I have male friends who shave EVERYTHING but their heads. It's their choice. Please don't judge people just because they do or don't shave!

Shaving those legs = approx 30min every second day. Plucking those eyebrows = ~2min once a week. It doesn't have to be all or nothing and she did say her main motivation was time saved.

I have really fuzzy legs and It's kind of disappointing to me that so many people, just random people, go up to you and mention it. I already have sociall anxiety, it's not helping! The only reason (before I saw this post) that I didn't shave my legs was that I'd fear it would be to noticeable and people would judge me for that. LOL, that impeccable logic that social anxiety brings, though!

Norm B. Since my early teens I have always loved and been excited at the sight, feel and the smell of hirsute women. On a Biological level, body hair is associated with pheromones, a natural secretion that promotes sexual attraction between humans. So I applaud all of you beautiful hirsute women who reject the Madison Avenue propaganda.

It's not propaganda. Do you let your front lawn grow to it's full potential? Do you not shovel snow? Do you not paint your house? It's preference. I like smooth skin. Even on my man. Beards are very popular right now. Doesn't mean I jumped on the beard bandwagon. Tattoos are extremely trendy. I am still not getting one.

I think it's great to see hairy legs on a beautiful woman, it challenges the conventional idea of beauty and gives an insight into how conditioned we are. Personally I find it hard to look at my hairy self and love how I look and that's because being hairy isn't seen as beautiful. I think it takes a strong sense of self to do this.

Benny Lava

Good for her for being brave enough to try it but as a straight man I would feel as if I am sleeping with another man if I had to touch those legs. They are hairier than mine. Just being totally honest here. Not very PC, I know, but I trust you to accept my preferences just as you accept hers. When I am fantasizing about women, hairy legs are not present. The armpits are not that bad but I could never wrap those legs around my neck.

Lexi Z

And you have every right to feel that way. Some women can't stand shaved men. Baby smooth legs on a man turns them off. I hate body hair on women and men so I am good with it. I love my fiances legs. For some reason the hair is very fine and soft. Maybe I am a weirdo though lol.

This is great. I can grow that much hair as well and it only takes me 2 months. I absolutely understand the intention. The whole shaving thing really takes a lot of time, expecially when you have to start with the bikini area and end at the feet. But watching these pics really make me realize the conditions that we grow up with. I don't know if I would feel that comfortable with hairy legs.

More women should let it grow out for at least variety. Why not? Women change hairdos on their heads so what's the difference? This whole thing that women "need" to shave is ridiculous. It hasn't always been like that and it wasn't an issue back then. Personally I think it looks sexy 😊

As an aromatherapist, every so often I get a client who apologises for not having shaved. It really doesn't bother me in fact I prefer the natural look but whether any individual woman or man for that matter shaves their body hair or not is none of my business.

it's natural, we're born to have hairy armpits, legs, arms and of course other body parts! A lot of other cultures don't shave. My family comes from a long line of hairy ancestors, lol. I haven't shaved my legs in ages, no need; ever since I went through menopause for some reason I have very little hair left on my legs! I also quit shaving my under arms a few years back (basically from shear laziness) its no big deal, but then I am 68, not real concerned with what anyone else thinks about it! I spent several years shaving my crotch area all because some man decided he didn't like a hairy crotch and I went along with it, what a pain in the ass that was. One of the stupid things I did when I was younger just to make someone else happy! Do what you feel is right for you, everyone has different preferences, to each their own!

In high school, I barely ever shaved my legs but that was mostly because my hair is blonde on my legs (i'm a red head). But as time went on, I started getting more and more hair and my armpit hair turned brown. I still didn't shave often, because tbh I just don't like shaving. I do shave my armpits now regularly, but my legs only get shaved when the hair is around a half an inch long. Plus, my leg hair doesn't grow that fast so I buy razors at costco that attach to the stick, so I don't have to use a new razor every time I shave. I don't not shave to be cool or to stand up to men, or anything like that. I do it because shaving my armpits makes me itchy. Shaving my legs only lasts a few hours before they get prickly. It's not worth more than a once a month shave. It's not about standing up to men, it's about comfort. That's my main priority.

It's a fairly modern practice. Up until the 1920's no one ever considered hair removal in Western cultures. Just didn't happen. It was only when fashions changed and pits and legs were exposed that an advertising opportunity was raised. "Let's tell women that exposed pit and leg hair is yucky and we can sell more razors" ... if they hadn't done that none of us (male or female) would think about it. Prior to that time men had been sleeping with and enjoying the bodies of their partners/wives without an issue ... hair and all.

The thing is, she's a beautiful woman regardless. If an overweight, unattractive woman did this, she would be completely ridiculed, nary a supporter in sight. This just goes to show that a "perceived imperfection" such as body hair can be overlooked if you're beautiful with a "socially acceptable" body. That's not a commentary on the woman who did this, but on society as a whole.

I've gone shaved or not shaved periodically throughout my life. I don't really mind being hairy and I don't mind shaving- but it is expensive and it creates a lot of garbage so sometimes I'll take a break from doing it. I was bullied for being hairy-legged in school, too, along with a lot of other "reasons" but that's not why I shave or don't shave. I do it when I want to and not when I don't. No one I know seems to mind and even if they did these days it wouldn't bug me!

<3 Awesome!!!! <3 I agree, well, i grew my hair to exercise my patience, i think i haven't shaved for 2.5 years now, though disapointlingly i have way too little for my taste, i even rubbed my self in oils and mosturizers that supposedly stimulate hair growth. Anyway, i love body hair bcs it gives me a warm-pleasant-feral-peaceful feeling from staring at it on others, and on me i like it too bcs air drafts through my body hair tingle my legs in a very VERY enjoyable manner =) I love it on my bf bcs i can snuggle in him and i get filled with warmth like being touched by soft sun light, my bf also loves my body hair and feels similarly towards it and me, he gets feral, happy and protective, i get kind of a snuggling frenzy, i get that sensation from hairy pets too, like doggies, kittens, guinea pigs, gerbils, etc. sort of a need to hug, cuddle and snuggle <3 it even becomes "cute agression" (is like anxiety from looking at cute things/beings, in this case hairy beings) sometimes.

I think she looks great either way! But I am surprised she insists so much on shaving being time-consuming!!! I do it in the shower, takes maximum 2 minutes?!! Although it's just the legs and armpits, not the thighs because you can't see my hairs on there. But still. I can think of tons of good reasons why you may want to stop shaving, but saving time never crossed my mind!!

enak

I have about as much hair on my legs as she does, so speaking from experience. When the hair is short it takes anything between 15-30min, because of the density of hair (=razor clogs halfway through one stroke) and thighs (=can't see the back of them and always miss some strips of hair, so have to go over..and over). When the hair is longer - around 1h, because everything mentioned previously is excarberated. Also, if the hair is long 2 disposable razors are a default (1 for each leg)... So yeah, saving time is a legit reason

There is difference between legs, that were shaved and the hair grow up again and legs that were never shaved. My mother is the second case, she never shaved her legs (before it wasn´t common like nowadays) and the hair on her legs look almost invisible, is only here and there, and you almost don´t notice it. I kind of envy her :D

I don't bother shaving my legs too often during the winter, but I always shave arm pits. I mean, that takes like 10 seconds while under the shower.

Once we start eating natural raw vegan foods, ripe raw fresh fruits and vegetables, we start to sweat less and eventually not sweat at all. Sweating is toxins coming out of the body. Don't forget when hair starts to grow, until it fully grows in, after it stops itching. This also happens to men as well.

I quit shaving 4 months ago. My husband doesn't mind it and once you get passed the itchy regrowth it's really not that different from freshly shaved legs in the way it feels against your clothes. Plus it's much softer and I never get embarrassed for my stubble poking my man at night. I got shy about wearing my swimsuit at the pool and my husband said, baby who cares? You're not looking for a boyfriend and I like your hair so just own it. I love him so much.

I was raised in the family that my mother never shaved, so as I was growing up it's been normal to me. plus most girls from my country didn't shave, so I never thought girls needed to shave their body hair at all. But after I moved to US I later realized I didn't know how much and how thick body hair people have, especially white people. My mom barely has any hair on her legs, and armpit hair thinner than my eyebrows. Even as a guy myself, I have literally less than 300 strand of hair on each arm. I later started to understand why people feel need to shave, but I still don't think they NEED to.

I have recently just stopped shaving my legs and my armpits. I have found that I don't sweat nearly as much, or my deodorant does its job better with some hair there. I have extremely fine light hair on my thighs which I rarely shaved before but it is much darker on my legs. My reasons are that I just don't want to spend the money on buying razors anymore, I have things I want to do more than shaving. Every time I think about shaving I ask myself why?If the answer is in any way related to other people will see then I don't shave.

I have to say that being of Dutch/Scotch decent, I don’t have much body hair, and what I have is light and thin. (Except for on my head, I have the thickest, wavy hair that I adore) I have my body hair removed, but that’s just my personal preference for me. I respect each person for what they believe in, and what they want to do with their own bodies. To shave, or not to shave, that is the question. Do your own thing!

Ah, human behavior. Conditioned opinions. Grow up in Norway and surrounding countries, where it's normal to leave body hair attached. It is natural. Any other opinion is merely conditioned. Preferred, but still conditioned. If we grew up in a society where some women shaved, and others didn't, if it was 50/50, your opinion would not be conditioned, it would be chosen. But we live in a society where women shaving is EXPECTED. That, dear ones, is conditioned behavior.

Legs yeah in winter I can see that but even my legs don't take that long. I mean I guess it depends how hairy u are. I can do legs and armpits in 2 min and really that isn't that long out of ur life and the armpits is more of a hygiene thing when you sweat that area just...yuck. no. If u have time to sit there and take selfies u have time to take a razor to your hair. Also, I don't actually believe this is "comfortable" give me a break it's just another way to get 5 min of fame as an SJW. No one said u have to shave this has already been addressed by the hippies in the 60s it is nothing new but just expect that if you don't shave everyone is going to think it's hot. You are free to do what u will with ur body but you can't force your opinion of what is attractive onto others so be prepared for some ppl to this this is unappealing and its their right as well to think that

So all of the hours exercising, taming that hair on your head, plucking those eyebrows, putting on makup, and time spent on the internet,.... but a few secs shaving your pits, and a few mins hiting those legs is just too much time and effort? And you still have "issues" about a time when you were 11? Okay.

I never used to shave my legs in the winter time but during the summer, when I wore shorts, I did shave my legs. Now that I have severe back pain, I want to shave my legs but it hurts and I have to be careful. I even purchased Nair to see if it would be easier... and it is easier. But, honestly, because of the pain, I choose not to shave my legs. I use a back scrubbers to wash my feet in the shower too.

Lol at all the comments trying to claim there's even more pressure on men to shave than women. Case in point, if this article were about a man growing his leg and armpit hair, nobody would be commenting. I'm not sure why there's even a discussion. A woman wants to grow her body hair, fine; a man wants to shave everything, fine; you find it attractive, fine; you don't, fine.

I stopped giving in to our "cultural norm" years ago..I'm lucky, I'm not particularly hairy..having to shave most of your body is time consuming & costly, invest in pink razors, special shaving creams..what crap the public is fed..in part to maintain a look that is prepubescent..when I see something that goes against the norm I really have to think if it is conditioning or truly a personal dislike ..some days harder to figure out than others...

I haven't shaved under my arms in over 15 years. I stopped because I had to shave them every day and they always itched. After the hair grew out, I realized it let more air into my arm pits, so I would actually sweat less and had less under arm odor! I wish I had the guts to stop shaving my legs, also.

I don't shave very often myself, then again my leg and armpit hair are very thin and not dark at all so it really isn't noticeable. As to it being itchy, in the beginning after that not so much. Unless you have dry skin and to it making my ordor worse not really, if you bath properly and use deodorant it isn't any worse.

come weather that encourages you to start wearing longer sleeves and not revealing your under arms or legs, l tend to forget to use my razor..l think because l live in pants l tend to not have as much hair on them due to being worn off..my mums legs were like that as well cause she lived in stockings for most of her life..so having less hair means less shaving..also, from the beginning l decided not to shave above the knee, this also meant that the hair there was fairer and less noticeable..

This girl prefers having more time and less worry over being attractive to others. I think that is a brave statement. But sometimes I think that we all are not always honest about beauty and attractiveness. It is NOT always that we are shaped by society what to like and what to dislike. Some things or people ARE just more attractive. They just ARE. Some things in nature stink and some thing smell wonderful and delicious. I can choose to have a pedicure and get rid of my rough skin or I can choose to have smooth, soft feet. I can choose to have white teeth or I can choose to have yellow teeth. It is a choice to care or not care. It is a good feeling to KNOW that yes, I am hairy, yes, I am short, yes I am big etc. but I AM and that is important. Love who you are but admit that some are fortunate to have lots of great features. I don't want to diminish certain attractive features, just because I don't happen to have them.

As a man, I don't like body hair or facial hair on anyone (including men). The only reason i have a chinstrap right now is because of laziness and the discomfort of shaving so much of my face; I'll be clean shaven again soon enough. Lately I've just been shaving the part that looks the worst when unshaven (the white trash stash), since i cannot grow those beards some women swoon over. I also trim my armpits down to nothing on a regular basis (hair helps hold odor) and trim my crotch sometimes. It doesn't make me any less of a man to have such a personal preference and it doesn't make women any less "correct" to have their own preferences either. Women should do whatever the hell they want. The woman in this article is extremely attractive, IMO. My longest relationships have been with women who didn't find shaving their bodies to be remotely worth the pain and suffering of the task and it didn't make me run from them in some kind of culturally-programmed disgust.

You like what you like. She's very attractive, and it's super cool she tried this out for herself. At the end of the day what people should take away from this is what she said. To do what makes 'you' happy. If you're a sheeple, then sure, you follow the trend, or if you prefer "conditioning". Things become popular not by force, but because people take a liking to it based on their own personal interests. There are billions who love hair on both women and men, and billion's who do not. Did apple "condition" people to like smart phones? No. They presented an "option" and masses of people took a liking to it based on personal preference and interest. Grew up poor in detroit, did that condition me to stay poor and blame the 1% for misfortune? No, I got off my ass and took control of my life because "I" wanted to make something of myself. Gee-zus, people with these excuses for their actions. Great article & awesome woman, and honestly id date a woman line this despite "conditioning"... <_<

I'm not bothered one way or the other. To each, their own. It's just not my preference. I remember in my youth how lovely my legs felt after I shaved them, especially the way they felt against the bedsheets. After menopause, I still shave, but, sadly, I don't get that same feeling.
