What happened to pubic hair?

Postby feh23 » Wed Sep 16, 2009 1:43 pm

Seriously. There seems to be a definite disdain for pubic hair. Certain members of my family do not believe in such a thing as TMI, so I now know that many of my cousins under the age of 30 (female and male)wax or shave. This summer I overheard a drunken conversation amongst a group of 20 somethings about how "no one has pubic hair" because "it's so gross". Just from my observations in changing rooms, and porn, a bush or even bacon strip is a rare sight now days.

What's up with that?

Excellent question.

The longest hairs on my body are found in my pubic region.

Maybe they all want to look like those Chinese hairless dogs.

Shell-less molluscs alongside barbered annelids.

Pubic hair is gross. So are women who don't shave their legs.

I'm not even one-sided: Guys who keep an unkempt bush clearly don't care about hygene or appearance. There, I said it. At least trim it short. I don't want to see it either way, but that's how I feel.

But yeah, very few people in my world are clamoring for more pubic hair / flavor savors. Ewwwww.

Fennel, I don't really know what you're getting at, but based on your Neanderthal opinions on makeup and general personal upkeep, I'm not willing to decipher it. Keep your interest in unshaven, unwashed women who abhor makeup and general fashion sense to yourself. I'll be paying attention to the thousands of women in Madison who care about their appearance.

I think there's nothing more disgusting than shaved pubes. Yuck! Some slight trimming might be in order for an out-of-control bush, but total shaving...reminds me of pre-adolescent children. Of course, if you're a pedophile...

The solution to this debate might be a merkin.

I'm all for keeping it as nature intended. Shaved pubes are almost as unattractive as fake boobs.

Eyebrows and eyelashes are next. The former is already under severe attack in some quarters.

I'm not down with the full shaved thing on the ladies, reminds me of a little kid. Sometimes the shaving thing confuses the hell out of me. Most women either shave it all, or leave a strip or the area "above" mostly intact and then shave around the actual "parts" and below. Seems reasonable for the purposes of bikinis, sexual activity, odor trapping, etc. One girl I knew shaved the above part, but left all the hair around her hoohoo and ass. I was like, "whats the point?"

Personally, I don't mind a bit of trimming and would prefer that over an out of control hedge. I shave my out of control bush a few times a year, the wife seems to appreciate it. Plus it makes your crank look huge (stealing from Kumar)!

Btw, a "bacon strip" is something you leave in your underwear. I think a "landing strip" is what you meant.

When pubes start growing back in, it can become rather nasty. Ingrown hairs and red bumps. Yuck.

There are ways to deal with this issue, but to each their own. Enjoy la boushe!
