Body hair on women’s bodies. A topic that inevitably occupies a woman as soon as the first hairs sprout. Franka had a lot of hair on her legs, under her arms, on her belly – like many women. Depilation hurt, didn’t feel right. But is there another alternative accepted by society? Franka tells about her experience and her decision to let her body hair grow.
