you do realize there are many stages between "shaving everything off" (which is probably what your boyfriend is talking about) and growing a full bush 100% au naturel?
you could trim it, or just shave/wax your bikiniline, or a little bit more, or go for figures or... Sooooo many options! (not saying that there is anything wrong with a totally natural bush, just saying that there are plenty of options in between)
I shave (if you do, buy man's razors, works a lot better), because I'm too afraid to try waxing haha. but for some people waxing works great. I have a "landing strip", don't like it when everything is gone, makes me feel like a little girl (again, that's just me, other women feel differently about this.).
regarding your other question; while I personally think it is important to keep your partner's preference in mind as well, what YOU do with YOUR body downunder is YOUR decision. don't shave or not shave only because your boyfriends want it that way .
As for guy's preferences, it's just like with boobs or weight or any other physical trait: opinions and tastes vary. there is no general rule or opinion: different guys like different things.
I prefer to remain totally natural, never shave anywhere except possibly my legs in the summertime. A few times over the years I have had artists or photographers request that I shave bare for an assignment, which I did because I really wanted to work with them. But I do not care for the bare look at all and made the decision to remain natural. My husband likes the natural look best as well.
When I see other women in dressing rooms, locker rooms and so on it seems like the great majority of them are shaved bare or have done major trimming and changing the size of the patch.
I find that I receive a lot of compliments on remaining natural and bushy, and in fact some artists and photographers have mentioned that they selected me specifically because of that feature which is really hard to find.
But you have to do what you think is best for you, there are always going to be different opinions.
Tell 'im to shuddup, and be glad ya even talk to him . . . Professionally, I like there to be at least some "coverage" . . . personally, I'm still a guy (even though I'm a VERY aged one at this point), so, I'm happy if a pretty girl even talks to me . . . her grooming preferences are completely up to her . . .
For lovemaking clean shaven, but for photos it all depends on the shot. Clean shaven is the more exposed, more vulnerable with nothing left to hide behind. It definitely is not adolescent to me it is an unabashedly acceptance of the beauty of your female parts.
I shave everything off for personal preferences since ages (and I barely get the hairs back, at this point).
But when it comes to modeling, I have noticed that a lot of photographers prefer a well-trimmed coverage rather than anything at all - especially for fashion nudes and art nudes. I've even seen casting calls for not-shaved models only!

Do you girls wax or shave? and why?
And boys, do you like the brazilian wax?
i have many questions regarding this and i want to hear different opinions. My boyfriend says that shaving everything makes me look like a baby and he doesnt like it. what about you?
In a natural sense, pubic hair is a visual sign of sexual maturity..
having raised a daughter, my first reaction to a female body pubic devoid of hair is that of youth/immaturity. while i am sure every part of you is beautiful, shaving your pubic area does nothing to make you more attractive...it's more a distraction then anything.

I have no preference. If they are the person for that job, they are the person for that job, amount of hair is not a dealbreaker in my work lol. Completely shaved is ok, but on some models/outfits it becomes a no. It's only ever been an issue twice in fashion, usually swimwear shoots.
I prefer hardwood floors as opposed to carpet. I personally get for body waxes Brazilian included as opposed to shaving. Not having shot nudes it's totally on the model as to what they want and how they feel
