Who knew that not shaving your armpits could actually PAY off? Literally. A model based in London named Fenella Fox says within the last two years, her hairy armpits have earned her $375,000.

The 28-year-old model says she initially stopped shaving her armpits in protest of what is expected of women. Men aren’t expected to shave their underarms, so why should women be expected to?

Although she’s made all that money, her sex life hasn’t been as successful. The model says some men have supported her decision to grow out her underarms. One man, she said, admired her for it and embraced her decision. She said, “I’ve had one make-out session since [shaving], where the guy kissed my armpit hair and commented that he loved my female empowerment. While this made me feel respected and appreciated, the experience was very unexpected.”

However, a lot of other men have called her ‘disgusting’, ‘dirty’ and ‘unhygienic’ for it.

She told the Daily Mail that she’s even received death threats because of her choice not to shave. She said, “Some have said I’ll be “single forever” and will “never get a man”.

Despite this, Fox says she’s happy with her armpits and doesn’t even notice them that much anymore. She said not shaving makes her feel sexy, more womanly, and empowered. Lifting up her arms in public makes her feel “proud”.

The London model explained that she grew up being “highly sexualized” and experienced being groped by a classmate. She began an OnlyFans account to show men that they can “look but not touch”.

Fox encourages all women to embrace their natural body hair, as well as the rest of the natural naked body. She also encourages women to question the norm of shaving, since not shaving has been “life-changing for her”.

Have you ever gone without shaving?
