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 ??

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! πŸ™‚

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.

My daughter is a physician and has commented on the number of nasty abscesses she has had to treat on her female patients either from ingrown pubic hairs or infected nicks from razors.

Hair is hair. People make too much of it.

11

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.

10

I think that this question is splitting hairs ?

10

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! ?

I shave because I hate toilet paper stuck in it.

I like my hair neatly combed when I out in public. ...What?

What do you call a Roman with pubic hair in his teeth?

Hair there, yes. Don't mind going through a little brush to a picnic.

I remember when I had my children, back in the 60's. The nurses shaved every single hair on my pussy. It felt very weird and itched when it grew out. It never entered my head to keep it shaved. When I became a nurse in labor and delivery, all I ever saw was hairy pussies. In the 80's I saw my first preshaved pussy, when she came in to have her baby. At first, I wondered if she had some condition that made her loose all her hair, but she had hair everywhere else. Time went on and I was seeing shaved pussies more and more. I became a midwife and all I ever saw was shaved pussies. One day a woman came for a pap smear and apologized because she had not had time to shave, as if it is an expectation. I don't know what men like better, but, as for me, I like to see pubic hair on a man. I like some hair on their chest and belly too. A man who looks like a gorilla would not turn me on, but I do like some hair. It looks grown up, instead of like a prepubescent little boy.

I cannot imagine being 40 weeks along and getting a wax to look good for the medical team.

As a man with body hair, thank you. It seems like every guy you see on TV or anywhere else is waxed from the neck down, and at the same time has a week's worth of stubble on his face. I grew up thinking it was supposed to be the other way around- shave the face, not the rest.

(That said, I have been known to shave the nethers, but it takes more time and effort than it's worth when I'm the only one looking at them, so mostly I just settle for a neat trim, just in case.)

I suppose there are worse things than going to work and looking at vulvas all day......not many but some. 😟

@MsDemeanour I was fine with it. I loved being a labor nurse and a midwife. I was a nurse for 15 years and a midwife for 20 years, so it is a good thing I loved it. I can't imagine being a dentist and looking at yucky teeth all day. To each her own.

@Wisewoman3 I think it must be amazing to catch a baby being born. And then seeing the joy on parents faces.

@MsDemeanour It is truely magical. I caught around 1100 babies during my career and every one was as special as the first. There were times that were very happy, times that were incredibly sad, and some that were very high risk, but I would not trade that job for anything else. I loved it. Birth is a very primal experience, no matter how much money you have, how poor you are, how healthy you are, how unhealthy you are. It is a job that is not for everyone, but midwives are very dedicated.

I would be ecstatic just to see one in real life at this point! Hair or no hair, doesn’t matter to me!

Now that was funny!!

@MsHoliday but true! πŸ˜„

This fetish came about thru the porn medium. Shaved made for a more detailed visual. As long as nothing is growing in the bushes that might bite me, hair is there for a reason. As Napoleon.

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"??

This adventurer loves to get lost in the Bermuda Triangle.

Trimmed means it's much more sensitive to touch...and I like that!

Dealers choice. I could care less either way just appreciate the invitation to the dance

6

I’ve never heard of such a thing.

Post us a picture.

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

6

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.

6

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. πŸ˜€

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.

@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.

@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. πŸ˜€

@patchoullijulie Sad that you had to be accused like that for voicing your opinion. Happens way too often here when you disagree.

The less the better..it's embarrassing to go the dentists for a haircut..😬

You have hair in all areas for a reason. I tend to like neatly trimmed. A work friend was once arguing with me that women who shaved their pubic hair looked so much younger. Really. How old do you want them - 10?

Tell him that a woman’s body looks different from a child’s, hair or no hair.

I have a mullet. I keep my frontal hair spiked and my ass hair halfway down my legs, lol
