A Mumsnet user has hit out at her husband on the popular parenting forum, blasting him for his constant hair-shedding.
The mystery wife, who uses the name ‘DroningOn’, has admitted she is ‘sick’ of finding her partner’s body hair in the bed they share.
The woman has also shared her frustration over the fluff he seems to collect in his navel from whatever top he’s been wearing.
While some felt sorry for the chap, DroningOn said she might yet grow her pubic hair to send a message about keeping body hair well groomed.

The mystery Mumsnet user, who goes under the name of Droning On, has blasted her partner on the site for his moulting body hair, as she is fed up finding strands of hair in her bed
She wrote: ‘DH [darling husband] has a hairy belly and chest and I’m sick of finding hair in the bed.
‘It pokes out of the neck of anything he wears except a buttoned up shirt and tie and gathers all the lint off the inside of his t-shirts and it collects in his belly button.
‘New tshirts are the worst, especially those of a contrasting colour – nothing worse than seeing him climbing into bed with a wad of red fluff in his navel.
‘Might grow out my pubes and bikini line in protest.’
The female has admitted she is also repulsed by the fact lint from her partner’s tops gets stuck in his hairy body and remnants get stuck in his navel (stock image)
The post divided opinion, with some slamming her as a ‘not a nice wife’, while others advising her to embrace her beau how he is without changing him.
One user wrote: ‘His body, his choice.’
A second commented: ‘This seems harsh! Surely you should be accepting of his body? It’s not like he can control it!’
A third vented: ‘You are not a nice wife.’
‘Are you joking?? It’s hair! I don’t shave my body apart from my legs…I think it’s utterly WEIRD to ask someone else to remove their hair for your comfort or pleasure’, shared another.
A fifth said: ‘Leave him alone. He doesn’t find it repulsive or inconvenient, and you don’t really get a say in it.’
The complainant has revealed her partner’s hair is on show whenever he wears t-shirts or vests, and only a buttoned up shirt with a collar conceals it (stock image)
Another vented: ‘Shouldn’t have married him if the body hair bothers you that much.’
A separate Mumsnetter wrote: ‘Would you rather have some waxed TOWIE Ken doll?’
One added to the thread asking the complainant why exactly a touch of extra hair bothers her.
They quizzed: ‘I have a hairy DH and I think it’s kind of cute. He’s a cute monkey. Why does your partners hair bother you?’
A separate person shared: ‘Well you obviously married him hair and all. So why try to change him now?’
‘Presumably this isn’t a new thing. He had body hair when you met?’, wrote another.
Another vented: ‘This doesn’t seem like a huge problem to me. I’d divert my energies into something more worthwhile.’
One more wrote: ‘Love my hairy DP, he’s like my own little bear. Cuteness aside, i’d never dream of telling him what to do with his body, and he doesn’t tell me what to do with mine. As such, I have an untamed bush and a hairy trail up to my belly button and he just accepts me as nature intended. I do shave my legs and underarms but that’s for me, not him.’
The Mumsnet user has been blasted as a mean person by some writers on the site for wanting to change her partners appearance
A separate Mumsnet user has urged DroningOn to leave her partner alone and let him make his own decisions when it comes to his appearance instead of being pressured to change his look
Another slammed the mystery female for being ‘harsh’ on her partner and not accepting him for who he is, while another insisted she was not bothered by her partner’s body hair
While others were surprised this was a topic up for debate.
Another wrote: ‘Can you imagine the outrage on here if HE complained about HER body hair choices?!?!?’
‘Imagine if this was a post from a man saying he wanted his wife to sort out her body hair, he would be torn to shreds by posters’, commented another.
While a string of other users urged her to discuss the issue with her lover, and to grow her own body hair if she wishes.
One wrote: ‘Hey, why not let your own hair grow as well? I haven’t shaved my armpits regularly for years, and I’ve never done anything to my pubes other than an occasional trim. Works just fine.’
A separate Mumsnet user urged her not to change her partner’s appearance and attempted to remind her why she married him in the first place
Another told her not to worry about her husband’s body hair and has urged her not to ask him to change his external look to please her
A separate person added: ‘Seriously though, obviously you can’t force him to do anything but I assume if he has a preference over your body hair then you can tell him your preference over his.’
A third continued on the same vein: ‘Yes, it is his body. But I am going to go against the grain here. I don’t think it’s unreasonable to discuss it with him in a sensible way. You might come up with something you both like.’
A separate user empathised, and wrote: ‘I know where you’re coming from. My ex had hairy shoulders and back and I found it a big turn off.
‘Just broach the subject with him and see how he feels.’
Another added: ‘I have a hairy DH. I don’t mind chest hair – it’s the back hair I find gross and embarrassing. He won’t go swimming because of it but expects me to see and touch it every day. He refuses to wax it because he doesn’t care about being attractive.’
A separate writer commented: ‘I feel your pain op – hairs everywhere (thankfully don’t have the belly button issue). I loved my DH hairy chest when I met him 30 plus years ago. But it’s no longer just hairy chest. The body hair everywhere and is soooo long. I’d love for him to at least trim some of it as very long. I know he’ll be much cooler too in the summer.’
While another admitted they had the same issue, but would never ask their partner to ‘defluff’.
They added: ‘My husband is massively hairy, yes the shedding is bloody annoying but I would ask him to defluff anymore than he would demand I shave my legs.’
