Hair Removal

The removal of hair is a practice almost all women in Western society follow. The unfortunate thing about the practice is that many women are trying to force nature to do their bidding by using lasers to remove hair. The fact is that hair under the arms functions to send pheromones to the opposite sex and its removal can limit a woman's ability to find a suitable mate. The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) predicts whether a match is good genetically. Researchers know that "Mates with dissimilar MHC genes produce healthier offspring with broad immune systems." The way to tell if you and your potential dates have the right match is by the scent of your partner. Trimming, shaving and removing this underarm hair can limit your ability to find the right match.
