“Somebody’s gotta stand up and say pubic hair is good, murder is bad. Sex is good, violence is bad.”
–William H. Macy
In recent years, pubic hair treatments have become quite the craze. While the biggest dilemma before your anniversary dinner may have once upon a time involved which dress, shoes, or makeup to wear to spice up the evening, pubic hair styling has somehow shimmied its way onto that list. Choices involve shaving, waxing, mohawking or coloring it, and while fashion may suddenly equate to passion, you may be doing yourself more harm than you could possibly imagine.
The Psychology Behind the Shave
Shockingly, not only mature women shave or wax, but teenage girls have begun to participate in the process. Various motives behind the trend include the following:
- Desire for a smoother bikini and thong look
- Famous actors and actresses tweet about it
- Misinterpretation of effective intimate hygiene
- An attempt to look more attractive to the partner.
However, as popular as pubic styling has become, research indicates that preserving your pubic hair, as nature intended, is the best intimate hygiene practice.
