Bathing suit season is almost here so do yourself a favor and keep your razor away from your bikini line. Why? Shaving causes red bumps and ingrown hairs. The best hair removal method for the bikini area is waxing, the Brazilian wax, laser or pulsed light.

If you choose waxing, go to a pro. If you use a cream depilatory, restrict it to the bikini line. What can you wax? Your legs and your underarms. Check out my Hair removal: What should you wax, tweeze, shave and thread for all the info you need for summer (including exactly what happens when you opt for the "Brazilian").

(1) Deirdre Hughes says:

Women often feel that it is necessary to shave to be considered beautiful. Shaving is a Western phenomenon that started in 1915 when companies saw that it was profitable. The first ad in the campaign to end underarm hair read `Summer Dress and Modern Dancing combine to make necessary the removal of objectionable hair.’ The media is always tell us what is necessary and how our bodies should look. Revolt I say! Here’s to all the hairy sisters out there who decide for themselves, and are redefining beauty.

Damn right.
We are always told that we have to get rid of our body hair to be sexy. Its another form of oppression. Lets stop imitating porn stars and be delighted with our beautiful bodies.

(3) Samantha says:

Shaving your bikini line isn’t just for porn stars. It’s an excellent way to increase the sensitivity between you and your partner. Also Deirdre, the Egyptians used a form of wax removal for unwanted hair. Our puritanical beliefs taught us such a thing was a sign of a “dirty woman”

Umm..sorry girls but hair is ugly..didn’t you realise you should be pleasing men and not yourselves..by all means look like apes but forget getting a guy

(5) Beebs says:

Hey maybe you should learn to spell before telling women to please men, that’s bullshit. Maybe you should look at your calendar and see what year it is, maybe you’re lost.

June 28, 2007 at 12:49 pm
(6) Jeanie says:

Exactly Paul. Some women are more focused on themselves and they forget about the men. Guys hate hair plain and simple. Hair is gross and ugly. If you ever want a guy who will please you down there, you must shave. It is well worth it. :)

haha! Apes. Well maybe they will find an ape man who never shaves his face and has an over excess of hair on his chest and back. EWWW!!

women who don’t shave are most likely over weight and fuggly. Ask a guy he will tell you what he wants. Hello?????????

(8) mandy says:

I think any woman has the right to shave or not shave down below. I personally.. do, but that is my choice. I feel more comfortable and that is what matters. Whichever makes the woman feel more confident, she should do. And while we are on that subject, if a man wants a woman to shave their hair down below, then that man better damn sure not be excessively hairy on his back or chest. Not all of us can look like Jenna Jameson.. so men, get over yourselves.

(9) joachim says:

I think a natural woman is more sexy than a woman who “design like a child”.
Especially shaved vaginas are very unsexy, unfeminine and -last but not least – UNNATURAL.

July 28, 2007 at 9:15 pm
(10) William Marting says:

Body hair is natural and not unattractive. I personally find women who don’t shave more fun to look at. I also admire their noncomformity.

Shaved eyebrows, arms, pubes.. those look *really* odd to me.

(11) sum1 who finks your odd m8 says:

omg r u tapped in ead…..u fink shaved underarms looks wrong on girls. Well if you like your woman looking like men then fair enough but thats the real odd thing here. Woman who dont save their armpits are just lazy mingers who dont have any respect for the way they look.

I like women as bare as possible, with the exception of the hair on their heads. It’s much sexier.

Just face it, no one wants to see a hairy bush, especially when you’re wearing a swim suit and a piece of your forest has crept out.

Shave it!

August 8, 2007 at 3:53 am
(17) Bushman says:

I love to see a bush in any season. Don’t mow it, grow it and show it. A lot of men like natural, adult women and not your prepubescent ideal.

(18) Andrea says:

I wax everything below my head.

August 29, 2007 at 1:05 am
(19) Dave says:

Nothing looks better to me than a totally unshaven woman walking on the beach-natuaral, soft, and beautiful. Shaving is actually what I would consider a “fetish”. It’s just another example of useless conformity born of the desire to make money (razors,wax,etc.). Shave? For what? Just to look good? Cultural nonsense!

October 24, 2007 at 3:39 am
(20) Dave R. says:

It’s American Capitalism at it’s best. Anything to sell a product to make a Dollar. Girls should leave themselves natural – the way they were intended to be. If a man wants something hairless, then he should get a plastic doll.

DONT shave the bikini line & underarms.Hair is sexy.

December 18, 2007 at 7:17 pm
(22) Kes says:

I think hair is sexy, but not great bushes of it. I reckon the principle of “Go forth, multiply, and subdue the earth” applies. Cute under-arm hair is very nice, but it’s not cute when there are beards growing out of your pits.

And personally I like vaginas; it may need a trim so that it can be seen in all its splendor, but shaved?!?!? No way!

January 9, 2008 at 6:01 pm
(23) Jadalina says:

I really don’t care what men or marketing moguls want me to be or not be. I freakin HATE body hair! I wouldn’t care if being a hairy ape suddenly came into style. I’d still wax everything from the eyes down. Nothing feels better than slipping between freshly washed sheets with a totally slick body. My boyfriend loves it, but that’s just an added bonus in my book because I wax for ME.

January 22, 2008 at 1:01 am
(24) Jay says:

I like the 1900 to 1999 look on a female. You know…shaved legs and pits; regular fur down below. Us guys dealt with fur on a woman down below and we never complained. So why are guys complaining now? Oh, I got it…hair in your mouths. Tell you what…if you knew what you were doing, you wouldn’t get hair in your mouths. Besides, cut chicks some slack. We (guys) don’t understand the maintenance they (women) already go through, so why start making additional conditions? Just be grateful she’s bothering with your moron a**.

I go down all the time and never have a problem getting “hair stuck in my teeth”.

I have a 4 year old daughter. I have a 32 year old wife. I’d like their groins to be differentiated.

I like girls who don’t shave. I think it’s awesome. So it’s not correct to say that all guys find it disgusting.

April 16, 2008 at 3:24 pm
(27) Paul D says:

To Shave or not. Shave Please. Public hair serves 3 functions 1) trap pheromones 2) Insulates and 3) acts as whiskers. We are not cavemen any more so pheromones are not as important. Insulates why I prefer all the great feelings and whiskers I don’t want to know ahead of time whats she about to do.
Also, I will go down on her much more often and longer if I’m not eating all that hair.
Most Girls I know complain of hair and not being told when the guy is about to Cum.

Just my opinion

(28) beauty says:

Thanks everyone for the debate over bushy vs. tame, but when I say don’t shave I’m not saying, don’t keep your pubic zone trimmed. What I’m saying is, wax the bikini line. Get laser hair removal. It’s just better not to shave. But please, leave the Chia pets to your kitchen windows.

(29) woman - not a girl says:

I have a question for all you men who so adamantly say women need to be bare. Do you do the same that you are asking of us? If not, shut it!!!!

Agree with all who say a woman should look like a woman and not a prepubescent girl. That borders on pedophilic.

There isn’t anything wrong with shaving. Actually, i think it helps! There’s nothing worse than hairs stick on your dick.

Conformity? Sure they make a few bucks on shaving, but you pay for shampoo as well, so is that awful too?

… It’s not even something to argue about. There is nothing negative about Shaving. I consider someone that doesn’t shave unclean. Period.

(37) sarah says:

Firstly, I am shaved. What an utter pain in the ass, I have to keep up with it. I am 24 years old, and I feel like I am 12. It feels nice for like the first 4 hours then not so much. If a man doesnt like me if I chose not to shave, then really why am I wasting my time. Actually the whole shaving thing is a huge waste of time, if all women spent the time learning a new word or making the inside more beautiful then shaving themselves, or waxing or any of the (capital) ideas we follow women as a sex could inhance themselves and break though the many stereotypes we still endure today….. To shave or not to shave…. Get a life, it is your choice, no one elses and no one can tell you how to keep your body, (or it’s hair) not the media, not this blog and least of all men. take power and make your own choices.

i think girls should shave their legs and underarms, and trim bikini area – personally i think no hair looks wierd, but loads is pretty gross too!

tbh i think you should shave or wax but its up to you you dont want to have hairs poking out your bekini in the summer do you ? hair is gross but if you dont have nay you feel like a 8 yr old which is off putting aswell

i surely would like to know you women who dont shave. Im from europe, and here they shave most of the time. how is t in america?

(41) Gaby says:

I shave my legs and underarms and trim it down there, all very sexy, just to run to mirror and see my beautiful body, my skin, my curves, etc. and keep being so in love with myself.

July 31, 2008 at 9:52 pm
(42) Amber says:

To all the men who claim shaving down there is unnatural, I’m curious to know what your take is on a woman who doesn’t shave her legs or under her arm. If we’re going to talk about what’s “natural” let’s not discriminate. We could argue that you shaving your face is unnatural. For that matter, cutting hair is unnatural. Shaving unwanted hair down there is not more unnatural than shaving unwanted hair under the arm, on your legs or on a man’s face.

August 7, 2008 at 10:55 am
(43) Kelly says:

I simply don’t like hair in unwanted places.. it is disturbing and disgusting. Under the arm, when is hot sun, you start to stink more than a man. Your unshaved legs looks more like dog legs. Down there is just annoying when having sex.

Being “normal” costs reputation and pleasure and neither i do not know how u guys would look at a hairy woman.

August 20, 2008 at 9:16 am
(44) patsparks says:

Shave or not, it’s up to you girls. I’m male and hairy all over. Personally I like to see an adult vagina that is waxed, shaved or hairless. I think a lady may choose just to trim or not do anything with the hair on their vagina and that is their choice, I just find a bald vagina more sexy. It isn’t paedophilia because I like it to look like an adult, not a child. In fact if you have nothing showing I’d rather see a little hair, like a landing strip.
I choose not to be shaved, I even have a neatly trimmed beard, and if you don’t like a hairy man I guess we wont be having sex. You have a right to choose too.

August 27, 2008 at 8:05 pm
(45) PATRICK says:

I have asked my girl friends to shave since 1984. All have complied.. We had great sex all the time. My wife quit shaving and we quit having sex. I shave also and like the feelings. Girls that don’t shave probably don’t have many guy go down on them.

September 6, 2008 at 8:16 am
(46) Lars says:

Ladies, with all respect to those who prefer it “natural”: I just love it nicely shaved. I like the look, the touch and the feeling. And I appreciate the attantion that a women gives to herself when taking care of that. If you like your own body, you take care of it.
I agree to the comments that ask the same care from men. Yes, boys, take a look into the mirror, get your fat belley off, stop smoking and be a gentleman. That’s my philosophy.

September 9, 2008 at 11:30 pm
(47) Da Barber says:

Well, I too like my wife shaved, she told me if I wanted it that way to do it myself. So… I shave her 1-2 times every week now. She’s admitted the “bare feel” is more pleasurable to her. And the intimate attention is a plus in itself!

September 29, 2008 at 2:39 am
(48) Samantha says:

My fiance keeps me trimmed and tidy with an electric razor. My hair is usually less than 1mm to 3mm(Surely he’s not getting hair in his mouth at that length you idiots) We both find being entirely bald so childish and unfeminine! On the occasion that I shave (Granting that sometimes being entirely bald is a nice sensation)I still leave some sort of ‘landing strip’ or triangle. Plus, the electric razor leaves the short peach fuzz/stuble to be soft… Unlike a razor which leaves a prickely, razor burnt mess. THUS, a nice trim does the trick and any “man” that complains about a little hair is really a boy.

October 16, 2008 at 4:18 pm
(49) britney says:

I just shaved like yesterday at 6 in the after noon and its 4:15 right now… it hasn’t been 24 hours and it’s already starting to itchh and burn and just annoying.. I think girls should DEFF. not have a bush.. seriously! But I also agree that shaving is annoying and pain.. and you have to do it like every 12 hours.. so it’ll stay “smooth” or whatever… but since I’m like on neither side.. i think.. even I will start trimming.. and leave it like reallly short.. shortest as possible but not.. shaving. It’s incredible.. im only 13… and I have to go through this..

October 17, 2008 at 6:14 pm
(50) gigi says:

everyone has different preferences and its really up to them what they want to do. but you should never let a guy tell you to take it all off if you dont want to. oh, and as a nurse, i can tell you hair does have a purpose..even if it is kinda gross. it helps with friction and keeping all your fluids from making you feel slimy! one thing though, a 13 year old should not be extremely concerned with something like this. i dont know why youre even commenting on this page..

October 19, 2008 at 3:26 am
(51) John says:

My fiance has hair around her bikini area but I don’t care, I find it her choice if she wants to shave, wax, laser etc. I love her no matter if she baby ass smooth or not. I still go down on her, 1. She loves it and I love making my woman feel her best sexually. 2. I enjoy doing it, that’s all I can say. Women have their own unique beauty, rather physical, mental, spiritual or emotional, they all have some elegance to them. And to the comment to women should worry about pleasing men. If there were no women in the world…what would men really have? Even homosexual guys, They carry our future in their wombs. I believe women should get their upmost respect they deserve.

October 19, 2008 at 11:21 pm
(52) Pat says:

John, I love your comment! I love how you show respect towards women :)
Well, I haven’t done waxing before, but I think it’d be a happy medium to wax off the bikini line.
I’ve only shaved a few times and I did not like the look as it made me look like I was a little kid.
But I do like the idea of looking tidy, so waxing the bikini line is what I’d go for.

hairy vaginas are back in stop listening to all these little boys who haven’t left grade school yet.Guys would you shave or wax everything and i mean evrything if that became the norm I didn’t think so. so let them grow the few real men out here love them.

October 28, 2008 at 12:19 am
(54) Na.me says:

Why does it seem like the most immature comments come from people who like a hairless body? Are you adults or just enjoy being stupid?

You have a Preference, good for you. That should not cause you to force it on people you will never meet. That does not give you the right to insult someone. Your opinion and personal taste is not going to trump someone else no matter how much you cuss.

To find disgust with the Human Body tells a lot about you. We’re humans and we have differences on what is attractive, there is no law set for what attractive is…there never will be. We don’t need a group of Trolls going around and telling others “You’ll never be good enough.”

October 28, 2008 at 3:12 am
(55) Jennifer says:

I find it fascinating that we all develop different tastes and that we are so easily swayed by marketing campaigns. There are lots of things we do because at some point someone decided they were appealing: high heels, make up, shaving, piercing, etc. Even the way we smell has become a social phenomenon, since smelling good usually means smelling pleasantly of some artificial scent, like soap or cologne, with little to no natural body odor. I participate in it all: I prefer smooth legs and underarms for myself, and shaved legs on any woman with visible hair (some lucky women have fine down on their legs, even as adults), I like to be clean and I look better with make up, but it’s kind of funny that we take our fads and rituals so seriously, especially because they tend to change over time.

November 3, 2008 at 3:48 am
(56) sarah says:

I believe girls should do what they want. All guys want is big tits, nice skinny body, tanned, and shaved women. truly i shave to. but thats not the point. not all fat and ugly women dont shave some others dont shave niether. so ladies! do what you want. Shaving down there is bad. it makes red bumps, ingrown hairs, it itches, and grows longer and thicker. I know cause im in that situation. do what you want dont do it for the guys

November 8, 2008 at 5:22 pm
(57) Staci says:

Shaving anywhere, male or female, is absolutely unnecessary. Women do not have as much body hair as men do. Perhaps it’s because I’m a freak natural white blonde, but my leg hair is invisible, and I have substantially less armpit hair than even my 12 year old nephew. The Ancient Egyptians did not view a shaved pubic area as best, as shown by their art. They shaved their heads, due to the heat. People would shave their bodies to cut down on lice, which were common. In this modern world, we shower daily, have better soaps, and have anti lice treatments. In my opinion, based on personal experience, a full bush actually increases sexual pleasure, because your partner can play with the hair. I don’t shave anywhere, I get horrid razor burn and ingrown hairs, and my hair is too fine for waxing, too light for laser, and too fine for electro. (Back when I used to shave my pits, back in 6th grade, I couldn’t get a clean shave then, and I doubt I will now!) Basically, shaving was a horror story for me. I do not smell, I use deodorant, I wear makeup. Men do not smell if they wear deodorant and shower daily and eat a healthy diet, even with their body hair. My bush doesn’t stick out of my bikini, same deal with all the other women who I know that do not shave there, providing one gets a swimsuit in a size that fits them, not one that’s a few sizes too small. Yes, it does bulge if dry, but honestly, who is paying that much attention to that area at the beach? The only reasonable reason to shave is pure laziness. If you wash there, and condition the hair, it’s soft and you don’t have to worry about getting hairs stuck in your mouth. Same deal with guy’s beard hair… If a person chooses not to condition the hair and wash it thoroughly, then yes, it will be tougher, and it is more natural, but it is one’s own choice. I prefer soft hair on everyone. Plus, it’s fun to dye it. 3 inch long blue pit and pubic hair tends to lead to some interesting reactions from partners. Sadly, a lot of guys are brainwashed. There are guys out there that do not mind, but I remember back in high school, there was exactly one guy who didn’t mind it. Then I started hanging out with more accepting people, once I got into college. I’m not fat, ugly or unclean, I just don’t shave. Even if there was a miracle hair removal solution created, I would keep my hair, because I find it attractive. I find it not as attractive when a guy shaves, even his face. But if you want to shave/remove hair for whatever reason, that is your own choice. Just don’t make things up about it. For me, shaving or removing hair is not an option, and I personally find it gross. If you find it gross to not shave on yourself, and find it not sexually attractive, that is your own choice. But if you are a straight female, you shouldn’t really care if it’s attractive or not on me, and refuse to talk to people who don’t. (I remember the good old days in high school, and even in some jobs I’ve had, it’s amazing how people get, homophobic and caring about what an able worker does to her own body, in a job not based on appearances…) I support women/men who choose not to shave, and if you support people who do, that is your own choice. I will never take your razor away if you are using it for shaving. So don’t shave my pits or give me a razor. I won’t give you hairy people porn. I’m sure my fashion sense is not attractive to many people. I’m sure my mohawk scares away some guys. A fair number of punks don’t shave their armpits or pubes, but I know this isn’t the mainstream. Most guys in my age range believe the media images of what beauty is, but I’d rather not date a guy that doesn’t actually have a personal preference, but would refuse to date me for not shaving, because it’s not normal… As I’ve hung out with more uniquely acting people, I’ve not had a problem getting lovers. With the anti capitalist mindset, it is much easier and cheaper to get a fair trade shampoo, conditioner and soap than it is to buy a razor with the same standards. Razors also have much more waste associated with them. Richard, when I went to Europe, I didn’t see a single woman who shaved/waxed? I was in Spain, Germany and Norway, mostly hanging out with metalheads/punks though, and it was winter. Most women that I saw with body hair appeared to bleach it, but many in the group of people that I was traveling with did not do anything. It looked like a good number of them plucked their eyebrows though.

(58) lion heart says:

This is an interesting topic, for me in particular. I’ve been talking at length with my girlfriend about what she likes and what she wants. I have always been a fan of sex whether the vaj is hairy shaped trimmed or bald. After talking with her at length I realized that she like alot of women on this forum here believe that in some ways it’s degrading for men to demand that women shave or trim or shape etc. Art depicts the female form with pubic hair I don’t find it to be a problem at all in fact I really don’t notice it and she’s not like a freak of nature or anything but she has fairly thick hair down there it’s actually quite arousing when she does a little strip tease or something and the “bush” reveals itself. I see no need unless SHE…now pay attention to that SHE guys decides she wants to alter her pubic area if it makes her feel sexy to shave down there then by all means if it makes her feel more feminine or sexy to have a full blown bush then let her do that too. I was as skeptical as alot of guys seem to be on here especially the ones that can’t spell but after WE talked about why she wanted to try growing it out back at the end of September I found it to be quite nice actually I feel like I’m having sex with a woman not a 12 year old. In the summer she has said that she will shave or wax her bikini line which makes sense that’s not a problem but guys I’ll tell ya’ until she had grown hers out I had never seen anything more than a very trimmed landing strip on any of my partners and I was skeptical and now I’m under the impression that the more it grows the more I like it it gives her a certain degree of mystery and it’s nice. There is no different smell or taste to the area it just has hair on it as opposed to not and it makes sex more enjoyable for her because there is no irritation of the shaved area. To all the ladies out there whether you decide to wax shave or let it grow I say do whatever makes you happy because we men are at your mercy it’s up to you when we get to see what’s down there anyway. And guys, trust me I’m probably the most pro male person I know but don’t degrade your ladies femininity by making or or demanding that she do something let her have some say so in the matter you might find that she’s more open to your ideas occassionally if you do this, and don’t knock it til ya’ try it like I said I’m 24 yrs old and I’d never seen a bush except online and in person it’s actually kind of sexy!

(59) lady says:

as gross as this is, i like to trim, ONLY TRIM, just because some of the vaginal fluid can make a mess down there which is unpleasant to myself.

do whatever you want, but because you want to, not because you’re subjecting to someone.

November 28, 2008 at 7:31 pm
(60) Sue says:

This is a timely discussion. My boyfriend has been away for 3 months and returns in 2 weeks. I’ve been talking to people at work, and several of the younger women wax. Yikes! I just don’t think that appeals to me. I am older and not into the smooth, perfect look. However, I want to be appealing, and since oral sex is a favorite of both of ours, I want to add to the enjoyment. My boyfriend says when I shave, he gets a razor burn from performing oral sex, even when I shave moments before we have sex. So, I think I’ll just trim. I also was shaving because some gray is starting to show, which I find very disturbing, but trimming might help hide that as well. Getting old is hell! So, sounds as if I am not being unreasonable to subject myself to monthly waxings, yes?

December 1, 2008 at 4:01 pm
(61) Scott says:

Women shaving their legs and underarms is fine, but shaving the pubic area totally bare? I’m not into that…Neatly trimmed is quite sufficient..To me, if she shaves totally bare, it makes her look childish..Adult women are supposed to have pubic hair, just as adult men are

(62) Jennifer, 23 yrs says:

I also just trim the area and shave below the legs. It saves a lot of time, money, AND pain. Fortunately for me, my partner has no problem with this. He loves me and I love him all natural.

I also think women and men have hair in certain places for a real good reason. Just think about it. Humans need hair to protect them from the environment and body fluids.

I feel like a woman and very sexy even though I don’t shave down there. I suggest woman do whatever makes them feel good about themselves and not what the media says you should look like because you live in the real world, not what you see in movies or TV.

Seriously, why are you people debating over this?? The simplest way: Just let the people do what they want. Mind your own business. Some guys like it clean and hairless, some guys like it unshaven. Face it. Different people, different opinion. SO, SHUT UP!!

(65) Dale says:

As a matter of fact, I do shave my balls and my penis. Then I trim my pubic hair up to my naval and that is what I like to see on my woman. Not shaved bald but not chia pet either. Neat and trimmed like the hairs on the head. It should look like a Hallmark card, when you care enough to send your very best.

(66) Someone Who Has Something To Say says:

My boyfriend and I have been talking about this for a while now and although he’s keen for me to do it, he knows it’s my choice. I’m not too keen on the idea of shaving the whole lot off, but trimming it right down is fine for me. I’m 18 and I’ve only trimmed a few times before. Why? Well, I’m comfortable with the way I am now. And as for you guys who think women were only born to please men (yes this is aimed at you Paul) well you need a good kick where the sun don’t shine. We’re independent, living, breathing human beings, just like you, and we can do whatever we like with our bodies. I for one will never do something a guy tells me to, if I don’t want to. I admit that hair all over IS reasonably unnattractive, but if people like it like that, then I respect that. We all have different opinions. Oh, and if anyone thinks I’m unattractive or disgusting for not shaving it all off, just remember that I don’t care. You don’t know who I am so you have absolutely no right to judge me. And one last thing, I’ve never once shaved that area of my body and I’ve had no problems getting boyfriends in the past, thanks very much. =)

I think that tweens,teens,and women should remove the pubic hair. i think they should do that for the men if they plan on having sex. if they are just preparing for the season then i agree they should not remove their pubic hair

(69) Hattie says:

I’m young, attractive, successful and have had plenty of sexual experience, and i don’t shave. It is a myth that it is only fat, ugly people who do this.

Women shouldn’t feel pressured by the media, their peers or men to do anything to their bodies that they don’t want to do.

A true man will love you for who you are on the outside, but more importantly on the inside! They will respect the decisions that you make about your body.

Now go love yourself!

(70) Gordon says:

I also feel that shaving or not shaving is an individual’s own decision. I am curious to know, however, of those men and women who do shave their pubic hair, does the sexual experiences for male and female feel any more or less pleasurable. I hope some of you will share your views based on what you have experienced in your own lives. Thanks everyone

(72) Julie says:

Wow this has been blown way out of proportion. Personally, I don’t shave. My boyfriend doesn’t mind and goes down on me all the time. Girls; do what you want. If guys have a problem with it, they can deal with it. It’s your body, your choice.

January 23, 2009 at 12:39 pm
(73) LC says:

I think it is a big deal.

Personally I always hated shaving, I get horrible bikini rash and unsightly irritation.

But I understand with the prevalence of porn the majority of my partners would prefer I keep it bare down there, so I deal.

I would love to keep it natural, but I know until I find an understanding man I wouldn’t get any. Problem.

We all ask things of our partners, sacrifices are the core of relationships. It just shows I respect his desires, just as I hope he does the same for me.

Its unfair to tell men to suddenly change their preferences. We cannot dictate what other people like and don’t like.

Sure, I wish I didn’t have to worry about staying smooth, but it reaffirms that I care and strengthens my relationships.

If you’re not comfortable going bald, that’s your prerogative and more power to you. Stick it to the Man. But don’t call men pigs just because of what happens to please them.

Understand some women don’t enjoy the effort and result of consistent maintenance, so tell your lady you appreciate her taking time for your pleasure.

Shaving is a choice – some people may consider it necessary, and that’s worthy of respect. I find it more comfortable to shave. Nothing wrong with comforming if it helps you in some way.

(75) cakes says:

Shaving is NOT conforming… Unless you do it for someone else… And I seriously doubt that EVERY women in the world who has ever shaved (any part) of her body did it for another person… Some people just like it and some people don’t! Let it go!

(76) Krisa says:

This article is very true but I have a HUGE BEAUTY CRISIS relating to this! For the last year I’ve been shaving the bikini area atleast twice a week. My bikini area bumbs and gets cronicly more then any other case I’ve ever seen! I continued to shave despite the painful and ugly bumps because I thought shaving was just not an option! They are simply unsightly and extend an inch outside of the bikini line!

The bumps aren’t even my biggest concern, the bumps eventually turned into very dark and noticeable scars and discolouration around that area. the worst part is that I model bikini’s! Help me with any advise you could possibly give me….

Are there any possible products or procedures I should consider?? Anyway to bleach that area? What should I do and not do?? PLEASE HELP!

February 6, 2009 at 1:29 pm
(77) Steve says:

As a man, I feel it is completely up to the woman to decide how she prefers to keep her pubic area; it is her body and if she wants to shave or not, then it should be her choice alone and not be based upon what some guy thinks.

My personal preference is for a woman to have hair in her pubic region. I love the way it looks and feels. Yet, regardless, I would never refuse to be with a woman just because of the way she prefers to keep herself in this regard. I have been with women who have had full bushes, been trimmed, been completely bare and everything in between and it has never affected our sexual activities. I think that guys who insist that a woman shave before they will go down on them are being completely self-centered spoiled brats! Hair has never affect my ability to perform oral sex on a woman, which is my favorite activity. Besides, as a man who has long hair and a full beard and mustache, any stray hair that may end up in my mouth is more than likely my own!

So girls, shave only because you want to for you and not because of us guys. And for those women who choose to keep the pubic hair, know that there still are plenty of us guys who would love to get to know you in the most personal of ways!

Paul, Jeannie and Man:

Attitudes like yours are exactly what is wrong with American society. Let me address these issues:

Paul, you say “don’t you realize you’re supposed to be pleasing men and not yourselves?” No, not really. My life doesn’t revolve around the opinions of others–I was made in the image of God perfectly, just as I am. So no, I don’t think I’m supposed to be pleasing men.

Jeanie: Sister, what can I say? You drank the Kool-Aid, as have most American women. Put down the Cosmo and read some Cohen, cara mia. Their standards don’t have to be yours.

Man: Not at all. I’m all of 4′ 10″, a small half Native American woman. No, we’re not all fat and ugly, and Native women don’t have much body hair to begin with due to our Asian ancestry.

Hopefully that’s taken care of some of the problem.

(82) Bocephus says:

Ladies, Please, PLEASE don’t listen to these little boys that think looking like a little girl is sexy.

Most men are perplexed about the obsession women have for shaving their pubic hair.

Having pubic hair has almost become phobia which is sad. It’s there because men find it very sexy and it’s not what you see… it’s what you don’t see and leave to your imagination that’s really sexy and HOT!

I’ve found most men I’ve spoken to on the subject didn’t like to see a woman totally or extremely shaved because it made her look like a little girl and that doesn’t interest most “real” men.

This is not to say men want a “cave woman”. A neat and modest trim to accommodate today’s swim wear is perfect.

Another MYTH is you must shave because it’s good hygiene. I’ve recently read there is a new process to curb any problem in this area. It’s called soap and water and daily bathing.

In fact, most men tend to think women who shave, do so because the don’t have good hygiene habits, so the next time someone tells you shaving is the “Chic” thing to do, think twice about the type of men or lounge lizards you’ll attract.

For the record…..any man that hates pubic hair because it gets in the way doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing anyway.

(84) Dr Lori K says:

Recent studies have proven that both medically and sociologically removing the pubic hair is not good. Pubic hair actually is a protective barrier protecting a women from bacterial infection such as MRSA. Also based on clinical sociological studies, most men prefer some pubic hair on a women,as well as the fact that the hair unlike one of the posters above said actually increases sensativity not decreases.

(86) Fluffy says:

There IS a good compromise between shaving with a razor blade and having a forrest growing.

Use an electric shaver. Keeps hair grown in check, allows a little bit of air circulation, no ingrown hairs, bumps or razor burn. It’s even faster and less expensive.

As for Dr Lori K’s proof, that is just selective bias and questionable myth generation. There is no barrier there is just less perpetual moisture. Most men do not prefer a lot of pubic hair, and it does not increase (or substantially decrease) sensitivity. It is troubling to see someone masquerading as a Dr using such logic.

March 27, 2009 at 12:02 am
(87) Bocephus says:

Hey Fluffy! Read something beyond Bill and Jane went to town. Dr. Lori is correct. Pubic hair is there for a reason and as a “man” I can tell you the little boys who have convinced you that….”As you say “most men” DO NOT prefer a lot of pubic hair is supporting his pre-pubescent stage in life or determined to off set his short comings……. LOL….

Make no mistake, real men like women to look like women….not little girls. If you want to attract “little” boys…..shave so you look like a little girl.

(89) Meg says:

I love (read hate) that in an article about the health risks of a women’s beauty procedure, the first reaction of several men is to cry loudly about how much they want it done anyway. Not every woman cares more about arousing the highest possible percentage of men than doing what makes her happy and comfortable (e.g., lesbians, women with self-esteem). By the way, women don’t shave their vaginas, since vaginas don’t have hair in them! Guys who can’t tell the difference between the vulva and the vagina probably can’t find the clitoris or g-spot, either… so why should a woman go out of her way to please bratty, self-centered guys who are shit in bed?

I choose to shave, personally, but you’re hardly making a compelling case for the women who choose not to.

i say women should do whatever they want for their bodies and not care about what everyone else thinks, it’s no one’s body but theirs so they should rise above the message that is being sent to women through the media and they should do what they want for their bodies and not care what other people think. i personally don’t shave because it’s not natural we didn’t come to this planet with razors in our hands we came with hair on our bodies and as the beatles said, let it be.

June 11, 2009 at 6:44 am
(91) Nicole says:

Okay, well first, everyone who’s commented on this, has gotten the subject all wrong. The subject is to not use razors when you shave. She dosn’t mean not to shave down there at all. She’s saying to wax and ect. because of course shaving that area is painful! Me and my boyfriend actually got into an argument about this not too long ago. I don’t shave completly, I just shave around the pantie and bikini line. My boyfriend told me I should shave it off completly, for the reasons that it feels better during sex. But, I respect my body!! If I don’t want to do something, than I’m not going to do it. Especually if it’s for some guy. Even though he is my boyfriend, I’m not going to degrade my body over something stupid. I respect myself and my body. & I’m only 15 but I’m NOT going to get pushed around by a guy, they can get over it.

July 4, 2009 at 7:33 pm
(92) 16, from England says:

I’m only 16 and i decided to experiment with shaving down there once a few months ago. i only shaved a tiny part at the top and let me tell you, the next few weeks were HORRIBLE! as the hair grew back it became so painful, unbelievably itchy and i developed a really sore rash. I am NEVER going to shave down there EVER again. and if a guy ever tells me to in the future, he can piss off. Women have to go through so many painful things, like waxing, eyebrow plucking, high heels(that cause blisters and bunions, corns etc.), the wires underneath some bras, thongs etc. Plus the countless number of annoying things like painting toenails, shaving armpits everyday, periods(cramps, tampons, remembering when you’re on), waiting for your body to finally develop so you don’t look like your best friend’s little sister, trying to stay slim whilst being offered really nice food 24/7, and basically, a hell of a lot of things that just get on my nerves all the time. Not to mention i’m probably eventually going to have to go through one of the most painful experiences known to man, or should i say woman. childbirth! I’d like to see a guy shove a baby through his penis-hole! All this, and some guys have to be so shllow and self-absorbed that they can’t respect any of that and demand that we suffer from burning rashes down there everyday, just so they don’t get hair between their teeth. They seem to be fine getting stuff between their teeth when it’s food, and they’re in a fancy restaurant!! How much more vain can a guy get? I think it’s fine if a woman shaves/waxes/trims down there for HER, but not if it’s just to please someone as low, and as disgusting as a man (no offense to the guys who actually respect women’s opinions, i’m talking about the pigs that don’t).

I’ll trim my bikini area (both to make the hairs really short and to have only a thinner area overall and keep it neat) but I WILL NOT shave. I’d rather have hair down there then nasty razor bumps, ingrown hairs, itching, you name it. YUCK. And for WHAT? If a guy “requires” me to shave, fine. HIM FIRST though.

(95) Donuian says:

I HATE that women shave their bikini area. There is nothing more UNsexy than red bumps down there. There is nothing more sexy than a little pubic hair sticking out of the sides. It is natural, normal and greatly desired by men.

(96) cat says:

I personally like as litle hair as possible, i feel so much more confident about myself. I agree the bumps and lumps that can be left are awful and not sexy but there are some good tools out there which don’t results in these bumps. At the end of the day its up to the GIRL not the guy. what ever we want to do with our bodies is up to us. Those guys that are saying GO AND SHAVE NOW OTHERWISE NO GUY WILL WANT YOU! are full of shit and need a realitly check because to be fair honey, i hate the bush on guys so why dont YOU go shave it!!

Some of these feminist ladies out there need to calm down. Nobody is making you get rid of your 1970′s shag rug, just don’t expect any action with that dense rain forest you have going on.

i shave and so does my boyfriend

(99) collegeguy says:

Jeez, please women, shave it and you be pleasured out of your mind for it, guaranteed. let me put it in perspective for you: i am sure as hell that your man will show his appreciation and gratitude for you extra time spent in the shower or salon or what have you. it is not about oppressing women at all; it is simple, it’s not even so much how it looks when shaved or not shaved, it’s about cleanliness. speaking out of experience women who are well kept in their genital area (no hair) are generally more cleaner. it is nice to know that your partner that you are being intimate with is very clean, esp. as you are about to take the plunge into mouth to genital contact. am i right?

(101) my 2 cents says:

There’s a lot of interesting comments on here. I know a lot of women can’t shave down there cuz they’ll get razor bumps or razor burn (which is disgusting btw) because pubes are curly and cause ingrown hairs. My girlfriend had this problem and used to use this cream called Moore Unique razor rash cream or something to that effect. It cleared it up and I showed my appreciation.

It is NOT about the sex, it is NOT about your PARTNER.


it’s about being clean; God gave you a body, take care of it!

(getting rid of the pubic hair is as natural as cutting the hair on your head;))

Both men and women should shave/trim or whatever they feel comfortable with.

This is not an option. You DON’T want to smell.

Women use to be hairy. Well, women also use to shower about once a year!!


August 30, 2009 at 9:37 am
(103) brad says:

I think it’s ridiculous that men have laid this burden to be hairless upon women…as if women don’t have enough to deal with; monthly bleeding, childbirth, glass ceilings, needing to “take care” of men that were brought up by mothers who made them feel as if they needed to be catered to. Men should be brought up to be independent, able to fend for themselves i.e. clean a house, wash their own clothes and make a balanced meal and simply to see women as partners). I’m amazed by many of the comments by men on this thread and I’m hoping that many of them aren’t serious.

Back to the need for women to be hairless..Why the need to change what God/evolution, whichever you believe, gave you? Hair can grow in a variety of colors, textures, designs, it can look GREAT, can be CLEAN, and smell VERY good. CAN enhance sexual stimulation when learned. It protects the skin from rubbing up against itself by providing a layer of air/insulation which prevents moisture from remaining on the skin by encouraging evaporation. This moisture, if it remains on the skin can lead to moisture rashes, fungal/bacterial infections, skin break down. In the vulvar area it essentially aids in keeping dirt, bugs, etc OUT (if you notice on women with straight hair, it grows outward, much like the hair in the ear canal).

I prefer dating women who choose not to shave (some of us like to hunt for our food), because I think it’s a frame of mind and thought. Someone not needing to conform to senseless patterns, who is willing to be who and what they are; and are happy with who and what they are. Not that they are perfect, since none of us are…i.e. Only those who understand what I am saying, will know where I’m coming from.

Break the leash! No need to shave! There are plenty of men, myself included, that like the natural look. Women who shave it all off, to me and my wife, look too much like prepubescent little girls or teenagers, which are in no way appealing. Seems kind of sick to have sex with a woman who is trying to look like a minor and not a real woman.

The only part of me I shave is my underarms. A lot of people are pretty weirded out when they see my hairy legs, but I have enough confidence not to care. (Many people have told me I’m gorgeous ;) ) I have an amazing boyfriend who doesn’t shave either– I love his sexy beard!!– and is very supportive of me being natural as well. I think shaving your pubic hair is bullshit– just a commercial ploy to get women to spend more money and obsess over yet another aspect of their appearance.

(107) Accme says:

If we consider the actual purpose of hair removal from the armpits, bikini area or male penile area, it is just for the health.
If we men or women, do not remove these hair, our body remain uncleaned and there remain more chances of getting ill. I learned once that there is a “Curing procedure” which just focus on steaming the bikini area to get overall health. :)

(108) arianne says:

I am 15 and I have a boyfriend who has “went down on me” before, and we have been together over a year. I used to shave, and then I was sick for a whole week and didn’t get to and he saw the short hair on me and he said he always had liked trimmed, not a bush, and not shaved. But trim and tidy. And that is what I have been doing. Then he told me last week he wanted me to shave again. Wth? When I shaved, he shaved, and when I didn’t, neither did he. He asked me to shave again today when I did yesterday and it burns and hurts right now. I am sick of this because I feel like my neice who is 5. I am going to tell him today that I am trimming, not shaving. If he loves me, which I know he does, he will be fine with it. We aren’t with each other because of that and we aren’t going to split b/c of hair. It is really your choice, but c’mon people. Lighten up a little. Does it really matter? No. I only object if there is so much down there that something could get lost. Other than that, grow up.

(109) Perry says:

I honestly find that pubic hair is very sexual on a woman. Of course, the hair should be shaven along the bikini lines but a neatly trimmed but thick bush is a fetish of mine. I trim my girlfriends but leave enough for me to run my fingers through it to grab and pull while I’m orally pleasing her. And she trims mine weekly also-she’s very relaxed when she sucks me so trimming my black curls gets rid of the problem she had when her nose pressed firmly against my body.

(110) Jeff says:

To each their own I say, but ladies if your man is attracted to a shaved muff my suggestion is shave it! I sure as heck wish my wife would. I believe most girl’s nowaday do some type of shaving. It’s a real turn on at least to me. My wife refused for the longest time and I decided to take the lead. I shaved eveything down there and then my stomach. I now also trim all my body hair. She just recently realized that it was a real turn on, even after I told her so. She trimmed the bikini line and supprised me by moving my hand to her trimmed area. I was erect in less than 10 seconds. Now I will work on her to shave it all!

(112) A man says:

Women, first things first. STOP BASHING MEN.
You are all right in one way or another, but mainly for yourself. The tear is what it is and history is what it is and we are doomed to repeat it, just look around you. A shaved vagina is very nice as is one with hair. Nasty is when you have that hair and you wipe and leave stuff in the hair. Nasty! Your pee stays there and the smell does too, so no mater what you may want to think many times it is better if you shave.
Men are not to blame here for women shaving so dont give that a try it is false and if you knew much about life, history or philosophy you would never say that it was a mans fault.
I know there are many women who do not like men with beards and some do. The opposite is true for men liking a woman being shaved or not. Grow up. Stop blaming men you sound like most of the “afro americans” in our society. Accept responsibility for your actions and your need for consumption, after all it is consumerism that gets the ball rolling and if you did not want it it would NOT be selling so in the end you are to blame as are your foremothers.

I’m a chick, and I’ve shaved it before, and I felt like it looked like it did before I reached puberty. It was weird, but then it kind of felt “freeing”, until the hair started coming back, and I never wanted to shave it again. I think it looks nice not to have hair hanging out of your panties, I keep mine trimmed, but not shaved and it looks nice. I think a shaved bush makes it look kind of porno-ish.

(114) Man for Hair says:

I’d just like to chime in with an opinion to the contrary of most men (it seems). I strongly prefer women who DO NOT shave, pubic area particularly, (as rare as it is to find one nowadays). I have had trouble convincing women with whom I’ve had exclusive committed relationships to let their hair grow “down there”–Regardless of the fact that I actually found it natural and sexy, they were still not really comfortable with it.

(115) kristen says:

I LOVE the fact that this conversation/thread has gone on for two years!!! I agree that the non hair bare look is like a little girl. It is also everyone’s choice. The reason i was looking this up is because a friend of mine had a conversation @ one point and he said “girls who don’t shave are rookies”, and went on to say “if a girl asks him to manscape then he just does it, and it shoudl be the same for a girl, that she should just comply”. He then went on to say that he hadn’t seen hair there for a looonnnnggg time and it was kind of a turn on to see when a woman had it.

I have to say, I think the men who are good with it not being bare, good with it being the girls choice and find it natural and sexy seem more mature, and the others seem like selfish and immature and shallow even. I agree that it is a choice for every individual. My personal opinion it would seem a bit shallow to leave a woman or not go down on her becuase you like it bare.

November 30, 2009 at 1:14 am
(116) kristen says:

oh yeah.. one last thought which i forgot, is being completely bare down there is NOT that sanitary. Maybe that too is different for every individual woman, but it can cause infections, which would basically mean that you couldn’t have sex as often if a woman keeps getting infections down there!! ;)

I’m honestly annoyed at men who think that shaving is ABSOLUTELY necessary to shave. I’m 18, and I believe that women’s bodies are beautiful. My boyfriend thinks that women who shave might as well join the whore house. Women’s bodies are absolutely beautiful, in every form. Shaving down there is unecessary. I personally only shave my arm pits and legs, and only trim my pubic hair. Guys who can’t accept women for who they are, fuck off and take a shot of reality.

(124) Kitty says:

‘Kay, so, I’m gay, and I shave my legs and underarms and trim the bush. My girlfriend, though, doesn’t shave at all, and you’d never even know! Her hair is so fine and light, despite the fact that she’s dark-haired, that I always forget she doesn’t shave. The only thing that really makes shaving a big deal is if you’re genetically disposed to thicker hair and if you’ve already starting shaving. If you’ve already started shaving, then when the hair grows in, because it’s just stubble, it feels rougher and it’s more noticeable. If you let it go for a while, it gets to the point that you barely notice it.
I think it’s a matter of preference for the girl. I’d never go bare down there because I feel like a prepubecent girl or a porn star and it freaks me out. That, and it’s a pain to maintain. I think anyone who would expect me to put that much work into something that’s uncomfortable for me is a douche, and I know a LOT of women who say going bare is way more effort than it’s worth. A quick trim is all I need, and, like I said, my girlfriend goes au natural. Neither of us is fat, ugly, or any of that, and I’m plenty willing to go down on her. So guys who say it -has- to be shaved, you’re a pussy who doesn’t deserve a woman. And girls, if you’re gonna shave, do it for yourself, not because you feel like you have to. Sex is going to be pleasurable whether you shave or not, and if your guy is saying that you need to or is pressuring you, he doesn’t deserve you. It’s like a guy who only likes you when you’re wearing make up. If you feel like you need to make sex more pleasurable, instead of shaving it off, try something new or play up the romance. Only go bare if it’s because it makes -you- feel good. And if you want to go cavewoman style, do it! Women are beautiful no matter how they wear it, as long as they’re comfortable they way they are.
And I agree with what someone else said. If you’re doing oral right, you -won’t- get hair in your teeth. And if you REALLY don’t like it, either suck it up (as you know she’s done for you so many times. Going down on guys isn’t exactly a blast sometimes) or just don’t do it (but don’t expect her to treat you to it either). There are plenty of ways to have fun without it!

(125) Jeff says:

I have been shaving my pubic hair for at least 10 years. I work in job that requires me to be in control all the time. (A very masculine job if you will.) When I shaved my groin and stomach I found a femine release where I couid feel like I was out of control at least for the evening and weekend. I then started trimming my body hair short which added to my release. I then found out how comfortable I was with trimmed and shaved body hair. It feels great and I wouldn’t go back unless I had to.

(126) Dorkgirlsrock says:

I haven’t shaved my legs, my pits, or my pubes in over 10 years. Why? Well, to begin with I suck at shaving – no matter how often I did it I was contantly nicking myself. 2 – I have really curly hair and very sensitive skin so I was constantly plagued by pain, irritation, bumps, rashes, augh, misery! All of those feelings and sensations must really add to my feeling sexy, right? NOT! 3 – I feel weird when I shave, like I’m pretending to be
something I’m not and I feel vulnerable to external pressures in a way that isn’t fun for me.
However, I do occassionally trim and, in the summer, often bleach. I don’t mind making an effor of time and money to enhance my attractiveness for someone I am into, but I’m not willing to suffer regular physical pain and discomfort for them. Seems to me if they are really into me then they wouldn’t want me to, either.
Oh, and BTW, while my au natural state may reduce the quanity of offers I receive, it definitely increases their quality!

If you don’t like it, tough luck. Whether we shave or not isn’t your business. We can do whatever we want regardless of your opinions and what you want. It’s not your body and many males are disgustingly hairy – talk about hypocrites! Why not take a look at yourselves? Hmm?

William Martel said “arms,” not “armpits,” far as I could see, if you read his comment, that is. About increased sensitivity from shaving–that won’t go on forever. It only occurs as your pubic area is newly exposed, when you don’t shave all the time. It’s fun to do once in awhile but a lot of work. Ladies, do you really want another constant beauty chore?! Nicely trimmed, shiny pubic hair is very pretty, in my opnion.

In my personal opinion I am disgusted by hair, I can’t see it and I can’t take it. I think if a girl doesn’t shave herself then she shouldnt expect much. I personally find it dirty looking and pretty repulsive.

I’m willing to bet that theres not many ladies on here that can openly admit and say that their man will not go down on them because there not shaven, and yes I do understand there are some men that like that. But there are men that also like other weird sh!t.

Shaving shows you care to look clean, that your modern and care for your man.

hey sarah aged 14 (if you’re reading this)

hair growing on your inner thighs past your bikini line is completely normal, don’t sweat it. whether you want to keep it or dispense with it is completely up to you. (i say don’t do it – shaving and/or waxing is a pain in the private parts, not to mention will cost you time and money, and the benefits are negligible, since a real man will appreciate you regardless)

reading some of the guys’ comments on here makes me verrry happy to be asexual, i have to say. fellas, get yourselves a blow-up doll collection, you like your ladies hair-free that much!

If you don’t want to shave that’s fine. But please trim, cut, or make it more clean looking. I love oral but don’t like the smell sometimes when I do it. My girl does shower before sex but the long hair does create friction and does rub the guys in the wrong way. It should be a personal thing but it does help just by trimming the pubic hair…

(138) liza says:

I would say it is for a women to decide wot she wants to do with her pubic hair.She may decide to clean/shave/wax/trim depending on her comfort level or her partner.
It is a mutual and a personal decison to be made based on convenience,extent of hair growth ,body odour /hygiene etc.
One shouldn’t suggest or compel an individual what to do.She is the best judge and take a call accordingly on this.

April 6, 2010 at 8:49 am
(139) Jack says:

Liza said, “…it is for a woman to decide what she wants to do with her pubic hair.”

Is this not true for everyone? I’m a 29 year old guy, and I trim the tree very short indeed. In fact, the topic once came up with a friend and I, and my response was something like “YOU DON’T?! YOU’RE GROSS.” To me, body hair management is part of hygiene, and should be for everyone.

Men: IT WILL MAKE YOUR JUNK LOOK BIGGER. And cleaner. And women like it (Once, when it was our first time together, an old gf of mine saw my trim job and actually said, “Oh, thank God!”). My current gf says it tickles and she likes to put her hands there.

It might sound like I’m bragging, but my point is that it’s totally worth it. Hygiene, men. Hygiene.

I also don’t think it’s degrading at all if a couple talks about the things they like in sex, and the man says he has a preference about how a woman trims. It doesn’t mean the woman is expected to cater to it, it’s just his preference. He might also think a woman with a shaved head is sexy, that doesn’t mean women should do that for his sake either.

Okay, The thing is that i expect quite alot of girls shave because of peer pressure when they are younger (rumours about having bushes spread)
And then its just a habit and i do feel cleaner and fresher. That’s why i do it not for a male.
But i just wish there was an easier way.

Shaving tends to itch after the first day and you cannot do it that regularly without casing rashes and bumps.

Waxing is extremely painful on the softer skin and cannot get everywhere.

Hair removal cream is time consuming and isnt silky smooth after use. Also the hairs which go closer to the red bit can be diffucult to get without burning your fanny :) Hahaha

So if anyone can suggest a better and more efficient way i would be very grateful! xx

April 19, 2010 at 12:03 pm
(142) moxley says:

Maz (and all of you girls and guys out there)I can tell you the easiest way to shave down there and not have problems with bumps or pain.

Here it is: The Micro Touch (or any of those similar small hair removal micro shaver pens) – they cost about $10 and you CANNOT cut yourself with them, and you never break out. I can use them on my testicles no problem – they are quick and easy…I sit on the toilet, do it, it takes 5 minutes – then I flush the hair…no breakouts of ingrown hairs….

First off, I’ll say I love women to ber completely shaved, because I love going down on them and I love the sensitivity it provides during all types of sex. I shave my pubes and balls too – but it’s a pesoanl choice and I will still go down on a girl who has hair – I just like it better shaved for many reasons.

…and by the way ladies – I am sure you’re all beautiful – never mind the children posting here about women with hair being ugly – they must be about 13 years old to say such things.

I realy appreciate it when my wife is shaved down there. I am VERY happy to do it for her. And, yes, I shave myself. We both use those new high end multi-blade razors. It is fun for both of us, and we both reap the rewards.

I love he bald look, the soft smooth feel, the lack of a ripe smell, and it tastes better too. I am clean for her also. We have fantastic oral fun, and much more with her huge heels. It is a wonderful package for us, and it works out.

Different people prefer different things. I love her hairless pubis very much. Maybe that’s why we are still married after 30 years! She graciously give in to our wild antics! She’s the best!

(145) Keith says:

I love hair below the belt. Hair gives girls their own identity and helps them look different. Girls that shave mostly look the same. I think it’s the one biggest reasons Playboy and others don’t sale as good today as in the past. The first girl that hit’s Playboy with hair below the belt will sale like mad because she’s going to be different from the others. If all the girls are going to be the same (as in shaved) then there’s no reason to buy a product that keeps repeating itself.

I have been madly in love with women with full grown bushes. I think the image of a natural bush is definitely mind blowing and most guys would greatly appreciate any woman who is confident having a beautiful bush. I think a woman should take a great sense of pride in being natural. Oh not too mention a natural bush feels sooo much better on my tongue and d*** … Women who shave it all off are simply insecure a guy won’t accept a beautiful natural bush and the fact is … many men such as myself crave it.

This guy LOVES a full bush of pubes and will go down on it no problem. I also don’t mind other body hair on a woman (legs, pits) either.

(149) Lol - Woman says:

I’ve been reading a few comments and I read “SHAVE – FEELS BETTER” “DON’T SHAVE, PREPUBESCENT LOOK” “SHAVE – WE’RE NOT CAVEMEN”
All I have to say is… Europe has created this sense of shaving and the ideal woman and what she is supposed to look like. If you travel to Asian countries, African countries… they do not shave their places like us.
It’s plain and simple, it’s a natural thing for woman to have hair so why be ashamed of what we’ve got?

Men don’t need to be pleased since it is the females body anyway. If they don’t like, they can go get another woman to satisfy their desires and passions.

I don’t shave my legs nor my groin area but I do shave my armpits.
My Armpits is the only place I am willing to remove hair from and I don’t shave it, I use hair removal cream instead. I feel that removed armpit hair feels much nicer and I only really do it for big events or when I feel like I sweat too much because of it. I found that since I removed the hair I sweat less which makes me happier.
I find the hair on my legs too much of a hassle to shave every few days and waxing or lazer takes too much money that I could be spending on other items.
I’d love to have a tidy groin area but I am scared for my life to even attempt to shave or do anything alone because of an experience I had that was unpleasant.

I also believe in the fact that completely shaven, down there, just makes me look like a twelve year old kid all over again since I have a very youthful appearance. The security of having hair makes me feel like a woman.

Sometimes I’ll get sucked into the media’s views of wanting to shave and have that sleek look but would it really make me happy spending 2 to 3 days max with a sleek look then having to shave all over again to avoid the hair coming in? Nah…
I much rather be considered an Ape and have somebody really love me for who I am.

I personally do shave, not only because my boyfriend likes it, but because it makes me feel clean afterwards. I cannot stand having anything more that stubble, I like to take care of myself. But this is rediculous, just because you shave that doesnt make men a pediphiol, they probably just perfer not to go down on a girl that looks like chubaka. Girls this doesn’t mean you have to shave ALL the time. Only shave when you know you are going to be sextually active.
Sure there maybe a few times when im not fully shaved, and my boyfriend is perfectly fine with that, and we are still intimate, shaved or not. But i never let i never let it get past stubble.
As for the legs and armpitts, why not? It takes what ten minutes every other day to shave, so why not? Personially i love the attention my boyfriend gives me when my legs are soft, and i cant stand wearing shorts, or a bikini with stubbly legs. And I’m sure MOST normal men and women can agree armpit hair on women is disgusting.

Interesting comments, from my male perspective I don´t like a shaved ´bush´ – unshaved shows that the female is fully mature in all aspects, my wife only does her bikini line and underarm for cultural/fashion reasons like swimming and it´s not something I encourage (or discourage) – the choice is up to her not me…

Historically I see ancient egyptian art showing full bush and in late 17th/18th century the ´tarts´ who were unclean or had passed a std along were shaved as a punishment/warning to others..

I am now 40 I have had several partners in past and only one shaved – and for me sex with her was pleasurable but mentally I was always asking show me some pubes… I could not help thinking it was just too immature in a pervy kind of way.

Don´t get me wrong a women with hair hanging all out the bikini line doesn´t float my boat but I would choose unshaved over shaved any day… my current (first and I trust only wife) was shaved once for medical reasons and she couldn´t wait to restore to normal.. whilst it was restoring it was actually a major turn on… so I know I like trimmed / stubbly too…

bottom line is ladies.. do what is right for you, not for fashion, if you´re really really hairy maybe check with doctor to see if you have hormone problems or just leave it as is…

because whatever you have there is someone their for you and actually there is a very large group of men who love hairy women…

you should find a man who likes you for who you are not what you look like, with every partner I had before meeting my wife (and she is included in this).. I can honestly say they were fully clothed with Jeans/Skirts/Blouses – shaved/unshaved down below was not discussed – rather it was more fun to discover the delights below later rather than dismiss… I mean who picks up a girl in a bikini anyway..

and for those who think I´m a feminist in disguise.. wrong… as far as my own shaving habits go.. I actually trim my chest and pubes, and shave my face sometimes daily – othertimes for a few days unshaved.. I do this because it makes me feel good for myself and my wife accepts this because it is me,

just like how you ladies should be accepted for who you are..

hairy or not hairy, your choice, and listen to initial advice..
if you must – use wax/creams not a razor – when I don´t shave my face it gives my skin a break but I look crazy with a beard so I shave my face for myself and trim the rest of me for fashion – for me.. but not for social compliance – as like said I will sometimes not shave for days and I turn up for work like this (always bathed of course – never dirty/smelly),

sure some people comment, (only younger ones aged 18- ca 25…30) but I don´t care — why should I,
and if my secretary was really hairy would it matter.. would it heck.. office party would still be fun, and work still gets done, she has her own men her own life..

I found my hairy mary and I love her to bits… shaved or unshaved she is still the one for me…

social compliance is over rated.. be yourself and get respected for being yourself… it will do your confidence a world of good..

– male, 40 married, 2 happy kids, nice house, good job, unshaved missus and you know what I´m happy.. endex

there seems to be a big misconception that a bald area is more sensitive than an area with hair. do you know why animals have whiskers? they are very sensitive and in all probability the pubic hair makes the region sensitive. if you pass your hand over the pubic hair you can get wet, and men hard. try it. as opposed to something like the Pam Anderson sex video where she is “humping” with that stubbly beaver for an hour and a half and not a single drip of juice.

My man prefers my genitalia to look like that of a woman, not a prepubescent. Trim and tidy, not bare and 12 years old.
Not all men prefer it and not all those that do are fat hairy apes.

And since when should what women do with their bodies and body hair be for MEN and not for themselves?!?
SICK! That’s what the is! Don’t do things to please yourself ladies only please the men?!? Get over yourselves.

(160) Mike D says:

Girls, I’m a guy and I’m going to be honest with you. Trimmed pubes are the best solution. Never shave it all away. Trimming allows for a super sexy look without the pain and itchiness of a shaved vagina. Nothing is a bigger turn on to me than a nicely trimmed vagina. I would pound that shit all day : )

uhhh i agree wit any girl on here that says dont ever change for a guy!!! go girls! and for the guys saying what they want and what they like, guess what thats obv. not love thats just looking to get laid and stuff and what girl wants that, dont you girls want a guy who loves you not a guy who wants to screw u and leave, so obv. u would make the decision to do what you want with your body and the one who truely loves you will stick around no matter what just like most of us girls do when guys do things we may not like we still love them cause we’re all not perfect but lets start finding things like i do in people that make them sexy! and for all the girls who stand up and say i wont listen i do what i want with my body good job and for the others who would change for a guy ill just say a guy who wont accept you for you is looking to get laid and be out so good luck you’ll learn look at one of the guys he said he’d screw a girl if she did what he liked thats not someone you want thats not a winner

In praise of bushy women – please do not shave down there, I love you just the way you are.

It is not clear when this shaving thing started but I am not a fan. The first time I am with a girl and she has shaven (although I appreciate the effort), it is always a disappointment. As a man, I am attracted to women, not children. Pubic hair is a sign of sexual maturity and thus very arousing.

Look back at movies from the 70s. Back then women did not shave and the vision of a bushy woman was a great turn on and still is. To see a woman in a bikini or underwear with hair peaking out gets my adrenaline flowing and is very invigorating. So, I keep my fingers crossed that the venus shaving trend will end and we can all be happy. We who appreciate naturally bushy women can enjoy the visual beauty and women will not need to suffer the needless torture of waxing and shaving.

(164) Matt says:

Hair down there on a woman is sexy. Girl fur is a huge turn on. Think about it. Lots of pheremones are produced there. The hair accumulates them making them more prevalent. This is sex chemistry 101. Visual attraction only goes so far. Plus theres nothing less attractive than red swollen razor bumps everywhere. By all means ladies keep it nice and neat but don’t mow it all down. Real men love the natural essence you put out. Women who dont shave tend to be way better lovers because the chemical signals they give off stimulate particular centers in the olfactory system that are connected to arousal. It was designed that way. Of course I don’t expect everyone to know this because nobody reads any more. They just go along with trends. But that leaves all the intelligent women for me i guess

December 2, 2010 at 9:48 pm
(165) K says:

I think what matt is saying is true. Don’t mow it but keep it neat. I agree with what a lot of you are saying about this subject. But I happen to like the totally shaved look. And red bumps don’t occur if you take the proper precautions.

grow it and be proud to show it. Real men prefer natural girls who do not shave or trim anything. It is very sexy to see hairs porotruding from a small bikini.

Hairy girls are happy confident girls

(167) dave says:

Grow it and show it. Real men prefer completely natural girls. The all prefer women to be completely natural. Girls let it show, wear skimpy bikinis so that men can see you never shave.

Girls, you all complain about shaving.
Don’t even lie.
Every single one of us has pulled out the, “Well, we have periods, and have to shave, and have to go through labor” card with a guy.
If you’re complaining about how you hate shaving, then stop.
If you don’t complain, and do it for your own personal needs, then do it.
If you hate the idea of shaving, then don’t do it.
Everyone is different.
You aren’t weird if you don’t shave, and you aren’t weird if you do.
Guys; you can’t expect girls to shave constantly.
Especially during winter.
If you shave during winter, it grows back within 3 minutes because of how cold you get when you get out of the shower.
You don’t have to shave, unless you’re a manscaper, so STFU and get over yourselves.
Men who like hairy women, you have to accept that some woman hate being hairy and like shaving. You also can’t have everything you want.

So, this is just my opinion.
I hope all of you take it in concideration.

Ladies, whatever you do I love it. If you prefer natural, go natural, it is always a treat to see, if you like to be shaved, hey it is yours so make it smooth. For the artistic an interesting design often breaks the ice. For me, as long as I get to please you I have to say I love it all.

I am 16 and going to be turning 17 real soon about a week ago I decided to shave for the first time, afterwoods I regretted it, it was uncomfortable and I felt exposed. Most of all I don’t like the itchyness. I’m not sure what to do if im going to continue shaving or no my mums told me that i should NEVER shave :S and my friends told me that i should and it gets easier over time. I dont like the idea of being hairy and i’d probally prefer to wax except i dont think i can afford it :/ My boyfriend and I are still virgins and havent spoken about having sex or anything like that. But it is something I have thought about and im sure he has too, mostly its a personal opinion. I find it really silly that people are saying that reading these comments has been a waste of their time and theyre telling people they need to shut up, to me all these different opinions has provided me with an insight into whats normal and i think we should all exercise the freedom of speech, if I have wasted your time by you reading this then you’re the idiot, stop reading…

(171) beauty says:

Dear Karen,

Shaving your bikini area ALWAYS leads to itching at first. You might consider waxing. I know you worry about expense, but there are some at-home kits you can use. My friends wax their own upper lips and legs to great success. I personally prefer to get it done professionally.

Many women keep their pubic hair trimmed with an electric razor and then shave or wax the bikini area (the area that shows outside your panty line — or bikini bottoms, hence the term). I wish someone had taught me the electric razor trick when I was your age!


January 3, 2011 at 12:45 pm
(172) beauty says:

Here’s an article that explains how to wax your own legs, which you could use for the bikini area: http://beauty.about.com/od/hairremoval/ht/waxyourself.htm. It takes awhile to get used to and is painful, so you might want to go to a professional first.

(173) Liz says:

Wow. So many of the comments on here are SO disgusting. There is nothing wrong with personal preferences but telling women they shouldn’t expect anything from men because they don’t shave is the height of egotism – not every man is like you, guys, and believe me, most women, myself included, are not going to change our grooming habits based on the opinion of some random male internet commenter.

I’ve *never* had a sex partner complain about my pubic hair, and all I do is trim because I find ingrown hair and razor burn to be far more disgusting than a short layer of hair ever could be. Plus if you have any stubble – which can happen in mere hours – it irritates the guy during sex. I don’t have a problem with women who shave – why would I, it doesn’t affect me! – but all these people foaming at the mouth because some of us women don’t shave have, well, issues. Lmao.

I’m very thin, I tan, I dye my hair blonde, I shave my legs and underarms, I get my eyebrows waxed, etc. – so clearly I have no issue with maintaining myself. But the shaving thing has never worked for me, so I don’t do it. Somehow I get plenty of male attention anyway, so to all you guys saying women can’t get any if we don’t shave…well, my own experience says you’re wrong, so somehow I don’t think I’m gonna worry about it. But the hatred of women some of these guys display scares me quite a bit, not gonna lie…

(174) Nathaolie says:

With my full bush, I was a nude model for several years.

If I got a nickel every time a man who saw my modeling pictures told me that my bush was awesome and how nice it was to see a woman not wax, I’d be a millionaire.

Just look at craigslist or modeling want ads. There are definitely men out there who are looking for “naturally hairy” women.

Granted, most of us women aren’t looking for approval on craigslist, but it goes to show that the men here who say we “must shave” definitely do not speak for everyone.

January 6, 2011 at 7:55 pm
(175) LBOMB says:

I am seeing a lot of negativity towards women who shave, and I myself dont fully see the harm in keeping a bush, I dont care if people do, I’m not against it in any way.

But certain things look better when there arnt coarse hairs sticking out of it, Not to mention Its a lot easier to keep clean in the lower regions when you shave. I feel like people who dont for the most part just dont really give a crap about hygene and are lazy.

So a lot of us dont do it to please men, not all men are pigs, and the argument that they are is really sick and some women need their heads examined.

so i have a question, i am 17 years old and im not sexually active yet. i think its odd to ask the guy what he likes so what should i do. i read some of the comments and most guys like different things, yes im not a fully grown women and i do talk to guys my age (not into the whole older guy thing). But my question is would bare be better or not. i just want simple answers not a whole paragraph. thanks

(177) Peter says:

I like a woman to be feminine down there which means I like a bush thats just kept in order. Theres nothing more sexy than a woman with a bush. People think shaving or waxing is more hygienic when actually its the opposite, we have pubes for a reason so leave them there girls!

January 23, 2011 at 2:09 pm
(178) rpm says:

Gotta say that there are many many MANY men

(182) Bella says:

Questionable teen-Do what feels right for you. Getting into the habit of modifying your body simply to please a man this early on isn’t healthy. Experiment-See what feels right for you. It’s not a huge deal because hair grows back.

I shave my armpits, my legs because I like the way they look and feel after wards. As for the pubic area, I trim it, I pluck the errant hairs in the bikini area and no man has ever complained. Ladies, the men who don’t mind whether you wax it all off or not are the ones worth sleeping with. If they can’t get over what’s going on down there-bare or not-then screw them.

This whole shaving business really is a product of societal dictates. No one can say women aren’t supposed to have hair down there. If women weren’t supposed to have hair, then we wouldn’t have hair.

Why do women have to do all the work to look more “attractive,” a term which is subjective? I’d like every man to get his balls waxed and then talk about ladies keeping it “clean.”

Also, I don’t think anyone who can’t take the time to spell their words and properly (think-instead of fink-it’s 2 letters) should be calling anyone lazy.

(183) Tom says:

I’m an older guy – 55 – and earlier in life never even thought it was an option. But this is an easy thing to answer: I love oral sex and hate munching on a carpet. In addition to sheer comfort, it also just plain looks sexy. Guys that shave their pubes look odd to me but I seriously dislike very hairy male bodies, too. Smooth hair-free female skin is a visual ideal one one hand and on the other women can either enjoy shaving for their looks and improved sex or not. Men will take it either way – but I bet that if a test was done where men got to look at two identical twins nude, one shaved and the other not, the shaved babe would get most of the men. Ladies – do as you please, always, but just know that is the case.

i like to shave, it makes me feel cleaner. but i think that after a fresh shave i look like a 12 year old who hasn’t hit puberty. my favorite is about a week after i shave when i have very little hair that is light and soft, instead of bald or jungle.

(185) Jen says:

I shave it ALL – but leave a well trimmed
love heart on the vulva, me & my man can
enjoy intercourse & oral sex to the max, but
I still look like a woman – not a girl. I also think
the love heart is kinda cheeky lol, I feel clean,
I feel sexy! I like a man to keep trimmed, it just
makes going down on him SO good, if he’s
completely bare I’ll do his balls too. For those who
suffer bumps etc, supplement omega 3/cod liver
oil everyday, it does wonders for the skin & I find
hair shaves off so easily, the skin is smooth – it’s
fantastic. Topical products only go so far, another
tip is to lightly spray non-sting deodrant for
sensitive skin over the area after shaving, it stops
redness & you smell great!

(187) Oliver says:

Wow, still a hot topic.

It is personal choice, skin on skin feels better, and as the primary purpose for pubic hair is to capture and concentrate the pheromones and sex odors of the mammal it is an evolutionary throwback. We all used to be covered with a pelt of hair, that was natural too, but no thanks.

My vote is for hygiene and visual cues, every time. Maybe a little style on top, depending on what you like.

Moreover, I personally am amused and happy that I have lived through the period when a clean/shaven female bits have gone from being the fetish, to the norm and hairy bits have become the fetish.

May 5, 2011 at 2:08 am
(188) Elle says:

I dont understand how anyone can find a full grown dark hairy bush attractive. It is about as attractive as a man’s 30 inch wool on his face. There is a limit and it just doesnt look very appealing if it looks like a ragged, furry carpet on your legs and under your arms and between your crotch.

Removing body hair is just another way to beauty and feminize women. Or refine the beautification. We dye our hair, we get our nails done, we put on make up, we work out to stay slim and trimmed, we choose flattering outfits – it is all part of the game of being human and social. Going back to crnkly underhair arms and bushes sticking out of the side of bikinis is just disgusting and tacky. It is the equivalent of going back to cave times where people didnt bathe and let their hair grow wild and didnt brush their teeth etc. But is that really what we want?

If someone finds it attractive, by all means – there is no accounting for taste. But dont judge people who like it as out of it and superficial.

I am a guy, and women SHOULD shave. It should be law at that. Woman who are smooth look sexy and ARE sexy.

okay so if anything, trim your bikini area, please.
a big hairy jungle is gross, and just…ew.
OF COURSE shave your underarms, please don’t tell me you do not…

what i do is i shave the bikini line and trim the rest of it. i keep it neat, and that’s what guys wanna see. they like it to look cared for and NOT neglected like some cave creature…
i hate shaving all of it, it hurts, leaves bumps, and i have really dark hair so you can always see the little hairs growing back.. yeah, ew.

so keep it clean looking, and never neglect it. it’s a major turn off for guys. and it’s so unclean to have a big disgusting bush.

but most don’t like completely shaven because it looks juvenile.. ew.
so they like it clean kept, cared for. that’s my advice! :)

Personally Im 32 and love a woman with a natural bush. Took me 4 years to convince my wife to finally stop shaving hers. Wouldn’t bother me if she stopped shaving her underarms, but she’s too self conscious and wont do it. She’ll let it go a month in the winter but that’s it. Not a fan of hairy legs so those stay smooth.

Beauty should not be defined by the stereotypical women that are seen in the media- it hurts the definition of beauty and makes females more insecure. Why should we be pressured into shaving (or waxing-and bullcrap that it’s not painful, it’s my vag!) or straightening our hair, and a nice “fit” body? Thanks guys for aiding to that stereotypical image. Go on, make more little girls throw up and get boob implants.

I’ve shaved at some times and let it all grow at other times. I think the sexiest thing is when a woman is doing what she wants to do with her own body. I also think this is the healthiest thing. Try out whatever you want and see what works best for you, and don’t listen to anyone who tells you your body looks ugly. A partner asking you to try something different because it turns them on is a heck of a lot different from men insulting women who look a certain way.

(195) JSmith says:

I see great disparity in the comments on this subject, which tells me that no matter how you wear your hair—shaven or natural—there is someone who will find it attractive. I agree with the previous writer. Do what makes YOU feel sexy and you will be attractive to others. Personally, I am very attracted to women who do not shave. I especially like it when they use no deodorant. The natural scent of a woman is a very potent aphrodisiac. That said, a man should really be keying on who you really are and how you view the world, not the disposition of your hair. —JSmith

I know girls who never shaved and they have no hair visible on their body, why? because that’s natural, she told me they don’t shave in their culture and she doesn’t have any hair on her arms, or her legs? i am so jealous =)

July 6, 2011 at 10:28 pm
(197) Brian says:

Hair grooming is a personal choice and most men could easily swing either way. By the same token, the same way some women prefer a clean shaven man (either above or below) some men prefer a clean shaven woman. I’ve spoken to my wife on the subject and she doesn’t feel compelled either way and she saves where she saves and doesn’t save where she doesn’t shave by her own desire, and I love how she is. Shaving has been a part of culture for as long as we’ve had the ability to shave, and every culture has been different. That doesn’t eliminate the element of personal choice, however, and we as humans have always had the power to choose. Use your decision making skills and choose how you want to look and don’t let the feminists and misogynists here tell you how to be.

(201) Amanda says:

First off, don’t shave to please men. That’s stupid. Yo should find a guy that like you however you want to be. Which brings me to my second point. If you like yourself better shaved, then shave, but if you like yourself better hairy then be hairy. Do things because you want to, not because other people think you should or should not.

dont do thing just to please men. do it for urself. okay if ur pretty hairly like me, its ok to shave or wax the whole thing or just the bikini like or even not at all. i do shave there but i was thinking bout shaving the bikini line. point is u WILL find a guy that will love u shaved or not. for the guys that dont ” approve” of an unshaved ared then thats their lost, do what u want but i only recomend just doing the bikini line becaus its more comfortable and it looks nice but i wouldnt trim because that lead me to much darker and more hair it bothers me sometimes so i might trim just a little but i would probably do my bikini line. oh and does any one recomend shaving the bikini line not waxing?

thanks ;)

Everything in moderation. Just keep your forest under control. Make it so it’s not showing under your bikini at the beach for everyone to see, yet you still have some under there making you look like a woman and not a girl.

August 17, 2011 at 9:30 pm
(206) Sparky says:

I personally believe that you should only shave your legs and underarms as a woman, and maybe trim your bikini area once and a while. I’d shave your underarms because when applying roll on deodorant, it just seems gross when a piece of hair comes off on your deodorant stick. I’d only shave your legs in the summer when it’s worth showing them off because:
1) Give them a break.
2) You really don’t wear shorts in the winter.
3) The hair helps keep heat, and in the winter your bare legs will be colder compared to someone with unshaven legs.
4) You save money, and it’s another thing you DONT have to worry about.

You should only trim your bikini area, because you don’t want ingrown hairs down there, but you don’t want a jungle either. I have dark hair and it is more noticeable on my skin, but I don’t shave when it’s not necessary.

Oppression blablabla feminism blabla sexism blabla…

jesus is that all u think about? I bet 90% of u complain about your husbands when they dont shave their faces properly cause it “itches” etc.

Shaving is not only optical, in my eyes it is especially important concerning hygiene and aesthetic. You sweat less, stink less etc especially when u do a lot of intensive sport. Thats also the reason why I as a man shave most of my body regularly.

Saying “Protest! DOnt shave!” sounds to me like “Dont shave! im too lazy to do it and noone cares anyway so u might as well support me!”

(208) Mel says:

For all the guys demanding that women shave, you best be checking if YOU are clean there as well. Don’t be hypocritical now. If we choose not to, we won’t, and vice versa. Simple as that. Get over yourselves. Women are not here to constantly please your desires. No I’m not a feminist, I’m being realistic.

You want a clean shaven woman? Make sure your area is clean too, as well as your back, face, etc.

And to the uneducated boys, the pubes are there to actually keep that area CLEAN. That’s right; they keep germs and bacteria away. So controversially it helps you keep hygienic. Trimming is fine with me.

Thanks to all who are less ignorant and more considerate! To the ladies, your choice is yours! Don’t let others tell you otherwise.

I’m currently debating shaving or waxing down below for my boyfriend.

I’m going to have to, i think, because (and i don’t know why), whenever my boyfriend tries to get my pants off, i’m just too embarrassed to let him.

I wish i didn’t have to alter myself to feel comfortable, but thats just how i feel. My guess is that its because i have never seen a single hair on a model or porn star…. on a woman all together. I have never seen a woman’s pube apart from my own.

September 16, 2011 at 1:21 pm
(210) Ryan says:

Nobody is “redefining beauty” by not waxing/shaving. It’s more hygenic– no matter what pseudo-scientist says– as hair helps trap moisture and bacteria as well as makes it more difficult to watch underlying skin in thicker patches. Guys shave and wax now– so women who are looking to be “feminine” should obviously do the same. The bush never came back, the hubub was a product of a couple of modern movies having male directors who were scared away from “degrading” women by feminist groups.

Shave or wax everything. No guys wants otherwise–no matter what. You can scare them into agreeing with you, but they’ll look elsewhere. Who wants smelly pubic hair near them!?

September 21, 2011 at 1:53 am
(211) Mystery says:

First of all everyone choices should be respected, whether one shaves or not and the choice must be made based on what the pubic’s hair owner really want.

Second, is really frightening the hate and hostility showed towards hairy women! What’s wrong with these people?
Anger management comes first, pubic hair second.

And if there any kind of nazism here I would say it comes from the neurotics who think the ultimate solution for mankind is shaving, just look at the difference between how they say and how others say.

One of these bald cruzaders said to hairy woman to “pluck”; more important than writing everything neurotically-grammatically right is writing like a real and mature person, not like an ape with an enhanced brain or like a child, honey.

As I said each one’s choices must be respected (saying that she MUST shave is bad, but saying it is immoral to shave is not good either), but my personal is that a totally shaved vagina is like cake without the frosting, is just half fun.

If someone doesn’t shave because is lazy it’s still their right, but I would say there are people who doesnt shave because they are too lazy to fight for their right of making a choice, instead of just obeying others ( of course Im talking about those shave for others, not for themselves).

On the other hand shaving or not shouldn’t be such a big deal, if a girl waxes or not shouldn’t be that important. But it is a big deal when someone wants to steal from you your right to choose what to do with your genitals.

If someone doesn’t shave because is lazy it’s still their right, but I would say there are people who DO SHAVE because they are too lazy to fight for their right of making a choice, instead of just obeying others ( of course Im talking about those who shave for others, not for themselves).

I wax everything off and love the feel of it, as does my husband. The feeling of soft, smooth skin down there is a real turn-on to him, and oral sex and intercourse are much more intense of a feeling. When the hair grows back in between waxing, it is very soft and fine.

I love the feel of it and can’t imagine not waxing every month. I have been going bare for four years now.

Body hair has ups and downs and people have thousands of different opinions; some being grey or black and white.
People have to realize that this whole issue has been going on for a very long time. I think people should learn to have respect for those who decide not to shave and vise versa to those who chose to shave. I also think that people need to learn how to just shrug it off and ignore. If you REALLY support your opinion, then agree to disagree and don’t attack people.
I’ve been annoyed with people who show off their hairy pits and think they’re better than everyone else because they’re “stronger”. So really, we’re both trying to look like the bigger one here. Overall, we’re at war with both sides. It’s merely the opinion of you. If your boyfriend or husband is really bothered by it, maybe have a talk and be honest? I’d assume that’s how a relationship should be but that’s my opinion. If you’re REALLY worried how men look at you, shave (if you want). I hate to say it but society/most people in general state that hairless girls are beautiful. If you’re not worried, then it’s your choice.
But if you chose not to shave, I also suggest you learn how to keep yourself clean. Trim, wash well, use good soap, etc. Same goes for girls who shave AND men, be clean. Your body is your body, clean it and care for it, whether you want to shave it or not.

The ‘bikini line’ has to go, just because of the bikini though. Ah…now I’m a poet! Anyway, Trim it down, don’t remove it. This makes one look like an eight year old child. If your man wants you to look like a child, maybe you should check the sheriff’s office web page of child predators!

(217) Dr. Hugh says:

Women over 40 (roughly) should not wax or shave “all” ….. everything drops on older bodies including your lapia, and take it from a OBGYN, it isn’t as “sexy” as you might think. There’s nothing wrong with well-groomed. Leave the Brazilian look for younger women.

(218) older says:

Women only shaved their bikini area when having babies for hundreds, if not thousands of years.
I have been with about 25 women in my life and only one was shaved there.
My own opinion is that there is nothing sexy about “It” being shaved. Shaved they have no “character”.
Look at all the old models. Models were in Playboy, or lesser mags and had no problem with thousands of men seeing hair there. Just the last ten or so years models are shaved.
I love to lick and have no problem with hair there.
Can only speak for myself.

Anyone that said hair is gross or if a girl not shaving means she is selfish is either an idiot or dating a completely ignorant male. We should accept every gift the body gives itself and love it.
Realize that every obstacle we encounter being a female comes from that push of separation from our pure, natural, beautiful selves.

(222) Eric says:

First of all, NOBODY was ever meant to shave. We devolop hair on our bodies for different reasons, but after millions of years, we still have it in certain places fOr reasons. Western society has made it unacceptable for women to be hairy, so most girls are taught that as soon as it starts to grow on them, to start shaving it off. Not all me. Find hair on a woman’s body repulsive. There are a lot of us that find it incredibly sexy. So, to all of you ladies, obviously it is your choice wether to shave or not, but just know that not all men hate hair on you!

Women can do what they want. Let your body be covered with hair. Weigh 300 lbs. Stink. Be a bitch. Whatever you want. But be prepared to be alone. And then, once you are alone, blame men for it.

im 22 and i have a proffesional hair removal person come to my house and wax my vaginal hair. Ive never had sex with what you would call a “bush” so i cant decide whether it feels better with or without hair. my boyfriend is 25 and LOVES IT…and i can say it just feels great when he does his thing to me down there. I myself like a smooth and clean one. Its not about being mature or an adult, cause my mother is 43 and also gets her vagina waxed. After reading this comment you might say, oh shes young and doesnt know much yet…hey i maybe young but even when im older im pretty sure ill stick to waxing. I love and adore my body and wouldnt want discusting hair to get in the way of it. doesnt it get tangled and knotted and ew….?

OK Girls. You say you feel cleaner with out your hair and thats fine, but how about just trimming it and mowing it low. I heard a girl say its just perves the like hair on women. Thats an unfair statement. Its what makes this world we live in go round and round and thats our differences. I personally love a real woman that looks like a woman and not a pre pubesent little girl. Now in saying that. I think women are the most beautiful creatures that walk this earth, so do what makes you feel beautiful and I will love you all anyway. I just have a preference of a little fuzz that shows me you are a woman. Good health to you.

Agree with you No. 9 A women who shaves “down there” looks completely unnatural and very child like, if my wife had ever shaved her pubes I would have refused to have sex with her until they grew back. I have never shaved or waxed any hairs on my body, and neither has she, apart for some medical reasons, a woman should have a full bush, not look like a little girl of 6.

Tbh I read on here that woman don’t expect the same from men….. This isn’t true at all how many men on here have there girlfriend’s moaning at them if you havnt shaved your beard. We don’t ask to shave there legs they just do. My girlfriend doesn’t shave down below and she complains to me about my beard so why shouldn’t I about her bush?

I can see here that it’s all about different strokes for different folks. Excuse the pun. Some men like it smooth without a bush, some men like a little friction. On the other hand, excuse the pun again, some women like hairy beards while other women get turned on with a clean face. So their you have it.

Ok, so the guys who are saying women shouldn’t shave AT ALL, don’t you think it’s nasty when we have beards growing out of our armpits and more leg hair than you?!?!? As for the pubes no one likes a big bush down there either, you can at least trim up a bit.

(237) That Guy says:

1. Hair down there comes with a price, ODOR.
2. I like to give oral, not so much when i have to fight through the jungle to get to her sweets though, I am NOT indiana jones.
3. Back to the odor thing, even if you are fresh out of the shower, all that hair still holds a weird smell AND will get in your mouth, Clean Shaven is just plain cleaner and easier to eat. I mean, how many of you women would like to kiss a guy that has a santa clause beard instead of that neat shaven look.

Seriously!?!? Really!?!?!?

This has nothing to do with the media. It has EVERYTHING to do with cleanliness. Shave that shit!!!

Men who like shaved pussies are “borderline pedophiles”??? Seriously…hair is NOT the ONLY thing that differentiates the pre-pubescent girl from a woman!!! Even without the hair they are VASTLY different in appearance.

Women…stop making fucking stupid ass excuses to justify being lazy!!! If you want your pussy to look and smell hideous…fine that’s your prerogative…but don’t be expecting men to hang around for very long if at all.

July 9, 2012 at 2:01 am
(239) Wow.... says:

Having pubes doesn’t mean you STINK. Just fucking get the soap and wash and scrub just like the rest of your bodies.

I shave my legs and underarms because I hate hair there. My man keeps his underarm hair trimmed too which is very nice. I wish men would shave their legs honestly; hairy legs ( IMO ) is gross on both genders. Ick.

I keep myself trimed short if I’m seeing my man. And if he wants a blow job he washes and scrubs and trims just the same. I don’t like oral on myself, so that’s no issue for me.

To the pathetic men saying we should shave to please you; lets get this straight. We are not here to please you. If we are fucking your sorry ass it’s because we want sex too. NOT just to get your dick wet.

And for the love of god, stop comparing a mans beard to a vagina. I mean really. Your nasty beard is not an intimate place.

Men want all the rewards without any effort on their part. Funny how they say shaving is being modern and a type of evolution. If your gender wont change then by hell, why should females?

well i ‘am (20 years) musulman
i do not shave for the instant , it take time and the grown hair probably will be horrible i only trim it but u know someday i ‘ll do it cus men like it clean
…most of musulman i know shave all the time
and our prophet said it’s from the instinct to shave ( it protect us from bacteria and bad smells ) and i do believe that , when women do not shave. the vagina liquide stuck on it and it’s begining for illness; and the more hair is long the more problems r coming
i’really feel awkward thinking of shaving it’s take toooo long time (boooring) but we have to do it for our selves ( goodbye for vagina’s cancer and most of illness)and for our husbands cus they really do the same for us but fro u guys (american ppl ) u must do what u really want i actually believe that u accept each othe very well despite of the diffrnt opinions

A little off topic, but I love how some of you claim that fat is a synonym for ugly, and that fat people don’t get any sex because of this and not shaving. Some fat people shave.

(243) rebelwaltz says:

Okay, to all of the idiots claiming that a bare vaginal area is analogous to looking prepubescent, get over yourselves. I’d like you hypocrites to insist that your wives/girlfriends cease removing hair from their armpits, legs, and face if lack of hair is prepubescent.

Secondly, those who have attitudes about shaving, just realize that most guys (under 40) will be less likely to stick their faces in your forrest. It will smell less pleasant compared to a shaved one (both having being cleaned frequently). If you think otherwise, you are in denial and probably a typical self entitled moron.

With that said, I feel people should do what they want down there. But hair all over the vulva and around will be mostly neglected from my tongue. For the record I shave most of mine. It is hygiene fools.

Personally, I like my wife shaved. She is always neatly trimmed, but in the swim suit season or if we travel, she shaves. Often I get to shave her myself. It is a big turn on for us both. So we compromise.

FYI we are in our mid 50s, but she looks at least 10 years younger.
We take good care of ourselves.

This is stupid shaven or not it’s the women’s choice and just because she doesn’t shave doesn’t make her fat or lazy or a minger or what ever other names you come up with it makes them human being able to make there own choices and not be told what to do there is no debate to be had every one has a personal choice some like shaven some don’t some women like hairy men some don’t some men like women with every thing but the hair on there head shaved some don’t some men like women with eye brows and a bush it all depends on that persons personal choice like for instance I think women who shave there eye brows are stupid I see no point in it what so ever why shave your eyebrows to just draw them on again and I don’t mind a bit of hair down stairs my boyfriend doesn’t shave I have problem with his hair but I don’t mind because it makes him happy and he doesn’t care if I shave or not but I do shave and then I let it grow back a bit n I shave again I don’t like the idea of having hair down there when it’s my time of the both but that I’m my person option so why argue about something that has nothing to do with you men and is the women choice
