There really is no medical reason to shave. That's true. It is very old though. Women in ancient Egypt (of course, where else?) shaved. It became popular in the 1920ies, when the dresses became shorter and it became okay to not wear sleves. It was actually part of the "early" feminist movement, a sign that a woman was confident and an openly sexual being. Through the media it kinda became the standard over the decades. But in many cultures aside the Western culture it's highl uncommon and even in the Western culture younger girls shave more often than older women. It's clearly a question of gender, heritage, mind set, priorities and just a question of how you feel doing it or not doing it.
For some time I even shaved my arms but that became too much work. I just hate feeling hair on my skin and I really hate the feeling after not shaving for a day, the stubbles. Make me shiver.
