I have just returned from a short det to somewhere hot and sticky with another member of this site. One evening, with the temperature still in the 100's this nameless (although I suspect that he will try to defend himself at somepoint and reveal himself to the board) chap said that he was uncomfortable downstairs as he was stubbly. It quickly became apparent that he shaves his nether regions, and had not been able to do so for a few days. Upon hearing this fact I was somewhat dumbstruck (unusual for me), as I had always considered it to be a somewhat (actually make that very fukcing) gay habit. As I was now sharing a tent with this non hirsute one, and on the long flight over I had just seen "Brokeback Mountain" I was naturally very concerned. A quick straw poll amongst some of the other 2000 inhabitants of this unit (all but 4 foriegn) revealed that the majority of them agreed that it was, at the very least, suspect, although one bright chap did say that it could be that he might be rather small down there and was trying to make it look bigger, a thought that had not occured to me, being as well endowed as I am. One or two others said that they felt that it was acceptable for a straight guy to shave himself down there, and that if we would like to see women less hairy then why not a man? Frankly I'd rather die than have a razor down there for anything other than surgical intervention! I throw this open to the floor, but I maintain, until convinced otherwise, that sharing a tent with this man should be done with caution and with one eye open at all times, and that anyone who is that vain that they have to shave their genitals is probably either gay or on the turn!
