I've heard three theories.

1.  It wicks away sweat for cooling. 

2.  (related)  As the sweat goes so does bacteria, keeping the skin healthier.

3.  It traps pheromones.  Primitive man liked it like that.  😉

I have no idea if any of that's true.

I thought everybody knew this. It's where their stuffing comes out.

I wonder if there's a correlation between the amount or armpit hair and the dimensions of the body? Big girls, not much hair; slim girls, bushy armpits.

Oh of course I am SURE there must be...the slender girls are losing their stuffing and you can see it coming out under their armpits...
