Pubic hair exists for a reason – stop shaving


pubic hair

Most of us have declared war on pubic hair.  Thanks to this growing need to look “clean and bare,” the genital hair removal industry is exponentially growing.  Brazilian, airstrip, bikini wax or smooth testicles – for both men and women, whether it’s shaving, waxing, tweezing or hair removal creams – the obsession continues.

But why pick on the bush?  Sociological theories suggest pubic hair became a victim of cultural trends spawned by bikinis and thongs, hairless actors, and also thoughts of being a more attractive sexual partner.

It is sadly ALL untrue.

According to, shaving pubic hair only removes a cushion against friction, leaving microscopic open wounds and exposes you to infections.  When this irritable area is exposed to the warm moist environment of the genitals, bacterial pathogens begin to nest and call your “clean and bare” area – home.

Some clinicians are even finding that freshly shaved pubic areas and genitals are also more vulnerable to herpes infections thanks to the area being exposed to virus carried by mouth or genitals.

Providing cushion against friction that can cause skin abrasion and injury, protection from bacteria and other unwanted pathogens, and is the visible result of long awaited adolescent hormones – pubic hair certainly serves an important purpose.

Perhaps it’s time to appreciate the bush.

    Conclusion? Think of that moment when he/she goes shopping down town only to be met with a bush of raging hairs…I’m confused.

  • The Devil Wears Pubes

    The article is straightforward, there is nothing confusing in the article, just in Lex’s mind that fears not being accepted socially for having pubic hair.

    My dear Mimi You are not likely to smell much different with or without pubes unless along with your choice of hairstyle you change your hygiene habits.

    I myself see no benefits to shaving completely, it seems to just be one of those bizarre trends that becomes socially motivated. By this I mean that people are afraid of ridicule if they don’t conform to the current standards.

  • How on earth is someone going to keep a bush for the rest of his life time.Atleast recommend pubic hair reduction!!!
