Your thoughts on pubic hair fashions?

I was getting my eye brow waxed yesterday and got chatting to the young beautician about Brazlian waxing... I understand pubic hair au naturale is well out of vogue even seen by some as a big turn off. Many men are also 'manscaping ' Some trim to specific styles... Lazer treatments to ensure a no pubic hair zone is very popular... does styles and what you find a turn on depend on age, ethnicity... sexual orientation? Your thoughts and preferences ??

I once read an article which advocated in favor of pubic hair from a health
standpoint.

The link provided isn't the same article I read, but it covers the same ground.
(the link is safe)

[littlethings.com]

I think the increased "fad" of shaving has been largely instigated by
the porn industry. That's not a criticism, just an observation.

I started having sex in the late 70s. Pubic hair was normal for everyone.
It wasn't until the advent of the VCR and widespread availability of pornography
for home viewing that shaving started becoming more popular. By the mid-80s,
it was becoming much more common.

That's my own little anthropological/sociological theory, based on observation
and personal experience.

Exactly.

It's about lighting in the porn industry. The camera catches more "action" when public hair is out of the way.

@LiterateHiker Yep.

For me it's functionality. I could care less about societal constructs or expectation. I find there are more nerve endings exposed and it's easier to keep tidy and free of toilet paperdegree. (Damn ultra soft, cushioned paper!!) I don't have an opinion on others preferences, just my own.

@AdorkableMe Whatever works for you.

You win the internet today! I love this!

Braided?

@LucyLoohoo Dreaded.

@Livia WAit! Little beads & everything?

@LucyLoohoo only down the thighs and round the butt. Weaved in with LED twinkling lights. Think Christmas tree, but pubes.

@Livia Must be fun to hear YOU at the gym! smile001.gif

Hair is hair. People make too much of it.

The only hair on this body, is on my head. I expect my partner to tend to matters as well. To me it’s a part of hygiene and makes oral sex so much better. It does seem to be a more recent thing culturally although it’s been my thing for decades.

I don't think people (especially dudes) truly take advantage of fashioning pubic hair. I mean, people braid it, comb it, gel it, but don't bother to give their junk a Jheri Curl. It's rid-dick-ulous...

Get rid of it! I’m so used to waxing that I’m actually uncomfortable if it grows out too much. It feels so much nicer when it’s smooth. Air that little lady out! 🤪

People should have whatever makes them feel comfortable.

Sometimes modern customs make me so very happy to be as old as I am. Back in the day we didn't care if it was prettied up, we just wanted it.

I need to see a pubic version of one of these posters before I can choose

I like shaven mostly because I enjoy performing oral. Much easier. Also, I like the look of a vagina. Hair hides that.

What you can see from the outside is the vulva. The vagina is entirely internal.

@JenBeberstein true. But it sounded a whole lot better than "the sight of pussy makes me horny"🤗😜

@Randalltague actually I think that sounds great!

On women l prefer trimmed. I find that triangular patch of fur quite sexy. I don't really care what men do.

I like it either way so long as it's clean and healthy. It's a woman's choice, after all.

I didn't even know there was a so called fashion. I personally like a bald pussy (I enjoy shaving them myself) so I don't get hair in my teeth. I love going down! In a act of fairness I shave myself for her/his comfort.

Well, I am going to go against the train of preference and go ewww! ickkk! on the hairless bod. It reminds me too much of the pre pubescent condition. But I am a huge supporter of each to his/her own. smile002.gif

Yes. I think would feel like a pedophile with a man with no body hair! How can a guy look manly without any hair on his body?

I'm all to each their own but I think the concept that it is looks prepubescent and is disgusting is mainly societal and is body shaming. It's fine thavepreferences, but can we voice them in a way that doesn't shame others? I have never understood why someone sees a bald pubis thinks this way. It's on a grown woman with hips and breasts and 99.99% of people who have the preference aren't doing it to look prepubescent, it's usually for hygiene and/or sensation purposes. It's akin to underarm or leg hair on women. Why is it seen as perfectly ok for men but disgusting for females? No one associates a man that chooses to shave is beard and moustache of looking prepubescent and getting squicked out. No one looks at a man that shaves his head and thinks he looks infintile. What gives?

@AdorkableMe Like I said, this is MY preference and my association....to each his own. There is no judgement on my part..I don't care what people do to their bodies. Body shaming...what? No, that is not what I was doing or my intent? I was merely stating a preference and why.

@patchoullijulie "Ewww! Ick!" is body shaming. Its akin to someone saying they dislike overweight people because it's disgusting, etc. You're preference is your preference but you are adding modifiers that are judgmental to people that present that way. It's possible to present your opinion and/or preference without being offensive or shaming people for their own preferences.

Edited

@AdorkableMe No...I disagree. It is my reaction and that is all it is. You can make it into something else if you wish but my intentions have been made clear.

Edited

@patchoullijulie it is absolutely your issue, but it can and does effect others but it's also a free country and we have free speech and you will do and think what you want. Peace.

@AdorkableMe I couldn't agree more. smile002.gif

I prefer a woman have pubic hair. I find it exciting running my lips through it amongst other activities while there.

I think for me it's all about ease of access and surface area for skin. There's a lot that can be done with a vulva when you don't have to worry about pulling on or pinching hair. I've waxed several times in my day and I kinda dug it at the time. For one there's nothing to get stuck in teeth, or in the back of a throat. For second, genitals smell more like the skin, and less like a musky ball of fur. Finally, the penis actually looks bigger once you take the hair away.

Well may be I'm unusual as trends go.. I prefer a woman to be natural below the waste..actually visually it's a real turn on.
Clean shaven doesn't rock my boat..trimming etc is fine.

Pubic hair is natures dental floss.

But serious folks ... I used to prefer something closer to natural, even a simple 'landing strip' but now I tend to prefer a bald look than a busy one.
