Pubic Hair

Shaved Pubic Hair [But Why?]

I was so intent on removing my body hair because
that’s what I thought I was supposed to be doing.

No one ever questioned it. A body with a vagina
should be hairless. I had never been taught or
told anything different.

Why do Women Want to Look Like Pre-Pubescent Girls?

Brazilian bikini waxing has had its share of controversy. Many women who have had it done successfully love it and prefer being hairless in the pubic region.

They feel it enhances arousal and orgasm, and is easier to maintain than shaving. Some men apparently prefer oral sex sans the hair as bare down there heightens sexuality.

Pubic hair is there for a reason to protect the sensitive skin and mucous membranes in the genital region. Getting a wax literally strips away that layer of protection.

I’ve waged a war with my pubic hair – and lost. Because of peer pressure, I felt I had to remove that hair. It started with shaving. That went well for a while, until I began experiencing wicked razor burn and irritation.

From there, I went on to waxing. I could handle the pain, but the waxes were difficult to schedule. I then moved onto a machine forged in the fires of Hell – the epilator.

This small machine promised to “gently remove hair at the root for smooth skin for weeks.” Instead, the small machine snarled and whined while it ripped out my body hair, and left me gasping. It removed the hair, but it also left my skin red, raw, and sometimes bleeding.

Then the real war began. I had developed large painful zit-like bumps on my pubic area that popped up every time I tried to remove the hair, whether by razor, wax, or epilation. I bought several kinds of expensive skin concoctions, but nothing seemed to work.

I visited my gynecologist, fed up with the bumps, the time, the money, and all that pain. She said that I had folliculitis, or infected hair follicles.

Then she said the magic words: “Why are you removing your hair?” It seemed like such a simple question. But I had never asked myself that before.

So, I decided to cut the crap and be more like a natural woman. Hair is there for a reason, and the time, money, pain, and waste created by removing that hair simply wasn’t worth it anymore.

I can’t even begin to explain the backlash I’ve experienced from not shaving. I’ve had countless people tell me that I’m gross, unattractive or dirty.

I’ve had a lot of women ask me if they should shave their
pubic hair.I always tell them that they can, because
why should women have to shave, wax or pluck the hair
off their bodies when our hair grows just as naturally
as the hair on men that’s allowed to stay there?

Removing one’s body hair is a personal choice, or at least
it should be. But all too many women don’t see it that way.
They see it as a feminine requirement, as I did.
This needs to change.
