Zen and the Art of Pubic Hair Maintenance

A short (and curly) and sweet one for you all today:

1) When I rule the universe, everyone will come to their senses and realize that pubic hair is pretty. MUCH prettier than an unnaturally shaved pubis.

2) A fully shaved pussy on a woman weirds me out, but an inch wide "landing strip" (a.k.a., Hitler mustache on your pussy) looks even stupider to me. Stop it.

3) A fully shaved pubic area on a man might also freak me out, but I've never seen one up close and personal. I don't care if I never do. I like my men with hair down there. And no, it doesn't impede my ability to give a blow job, thank you very much.

4) Why, oh why do people think they look better hairless?

5) That said, as someone with sensitive skin, and who prefers to trim for swimwear and underwear-wearing purposes, has anyone found a good solution for the whole red bumpy irritated skin thing that happens after you shave or wax or depilate? Don't say "loofah." That's bollox. Doesn't help at all.

6) Has anyone who's reading electrolysis-ed away their pubes? How did that work out?

7) I'm not for Brazilians, but I am for public hair celebratory adornment. Like dying it, for instance. Maybe with Special Effects. How do we all feel about cupcake pink pubes?

8) Has anyone reading ever dyed their pubic hair? There are a lot of "don't sue us" disclaimers surrounding this kind of procedure when you look for tips on how to do it. So how did it go for you? Did you end up wanting to sue someone?

9) For those with gray hair: did your pubic hair go gray or silver much earlier, much later, or in relatively the same time frame as the hair on your head? Do you think silver pubic hair looks prettier? (I think it might.)

10) Every person who reads this post is hereby required to write a celebratory poem in the comments about pubic hair. Length and genre are entirely up to you. Though I'd love it if someone managed to pound out a sonnet on the topic.

Fuck yeah!

(That was my poem. Now that that's out of the way...)

I like some visual indication that the woman I'm with is a mammal. I'm very pro-pubes. Shaved just looks all's grotesque and fake, like implants. I *know*, it's supposed to feel really good, but ya know, most of the time it feels like stubble. It feels nasty, in a bad way.

Pubes are fun for teasing. You can drive a girl crazy by almost touching her but never getting closer than her hair, in a way that doesn't work if there is no hair there.

Trimmed I don't mind, but bald is just dumb and I'll be glad when it finally goes out of style.

Same with guys. Shaved scrotum is fine, I do it myself, but completely shaved all around is freaky. You want to trim because an untamed bush on a guy looks awkward and just makes you look smaller, but jeezus, not bald, please.

My beard is 90% grey, my temples are going grey, my chest hair is mostly grey, but my pubes are still dark. Who knows?

Shaved pubes are vulgar to me.

A fully shaved public region on a man? Not only do you get that juvenile look (same as on women), but you can't stop at the pubes. It *all* has to go, including leg and arm hair. you have to bathe in depilatory.

I'm going to watch this blog entry like a hawk for an answer to #5.

As for #6 - I think most people would go for laser hair removal, which I hear is pretty sting-y anywhere on the body, but probably not as bad as getting your pubes ripped out by the root (!).

If my brain were working, I'd write a Hallmark-y poem in rhyming couplets and iambic pentameter.

Dammit, all day I have been trying to write a poem about pubic hair.

It just ain't gonna happen, and I must say, surely I have better uses for my mind than this?

Okay, probably not.

I'm of two minds about shaving. Mind One: pubic hair shows that I am an adult woman, everywhere bombarded in our society with messages that My Body is Not Okay. I can heroically fight against these messages, while also saving myself alot of hassle and discomfort, by trimming a bit for the sake of hygiene and leaving the rest alone.

Mind Two: I have never met a man who didn't LOVE shaved pussies. Perhaps it is indeed the case that My Body is Not Okay.

Anonymous rinno: Well, you commented. Pass the hat and the barbeque sauce.

Yeah! Power to the Pubal! I have no idea if that's a word, but that's what I'm calling us pubic hair fans for the time being.

Do you use an electric or straight razor for the scrotum? Doesn't that get irritated?

Personally, I don't really need a guy to shave there, either, unless it gives him heightened pleasure. But hair there doesn't bother me in the slightest.

Hiromi: I've been looking for the answer to #5 all my life. I've asked strippers. They all say they loofah. Doesn't work for me. My skin is really sensitive. I don't know which I find more embarassing: stray pubic hair peeking out of the bikini line, or red razor/waxing burn all around it. Neither choices is great, given current day societal FEAR of seeing even one pube out of place.

And yeah, I actually meant laser removal, really. I should update that term. I've met one woman who did that and was very happy. I've always wondered if it would resolve the #5 problem. But it's expensive as hell and you have to go multiple times. It's not guaranteed to work the first time.

Karl Elvis: You don't get it? Read R in NO's paragraph about teasing. Whew, fan me OFF!

Smooth only lasts so long and then it's rough and ugly. And so I hear, itchy.

And pubic hair can be soft and pretty. I think. It makes your lover's body a more textured, tactile experience for you. It's not all the same from head to toe. That's more interesting.

Plus, I want a real man and i want to be a real woman. I see no need to imitate the look of a child. If I thought it would make sex more intense for me, well maybe, but I've no reason to believe that would be so. I hear this can be different for men. I don't know.

Of course, I"m not saying I'd never try it, just to see. I do like to try things. But I like my pubes. I think they're pretty. I think they feel nice. I'd miss them. And I want my lover to like them, too.

Banana Boy: I've never once posted a photo of myself on the blog, so I'll leave you to guess the answer to that one. :)

Things I have said on the blog that might give you a hint:

1) I'm a dark-haired woman
2) I trim to accomodate for bikinis/underwear

General question: when people here are mentioning "trimming," do they mean shaving off the stray hairs or trimming as in cropping the hair shorter overall?

Mu Ling: I'm generally of Mind One. No matter what surface reasons people (including myself) tend to give for hair removal, I think in actuality it's mostly based on societal pressure, and probably a fear of post-adolescence and adulthood. I find it interesting that of late instead of women's body hair becoming more accepted, the way men's used to be, it's gone the opposite way and is now hair removal pressure is crossing over into the male world. I had always kind of assumed it would end up the other way 'round.

As to mind two:

1) your body is okay
2) I know men who like natural pussy--who prefer it, in fact. And you know, not one of my serious bfs has ever once suggested they'd prefer a shaved pussy. They're out there. Meet our first commenter above, for instance. I'm pretty sure he'd be delighted to lay eyes on your pubes at any time. :)

AAG: You rock my world. But I'm still not gonna move to Nebraska.

I wonder if they make dreadlocked mirkins?

I also know you shaved it all off recently. Did you like it better or worse? Any difference? How'd you resolve the razor burn issue?

Blogger Ray in New Orleans said...

Electric anything near the scrotum is a bad bad idea. I use a Mach 3 Turbo razor.

Ingrowns and bumps aren't a problem if you just do it once a week, plus I think the skin there is different because it's all loose and foldy.

Trimmed to me means trimmed for length. I set the beard trimmer on about a 4. The only problem, as Hiromi pointed out, is where to stop. My legs are hairy, my belly is least with trimming you can sort of finesse the blurry boundaries, whereas if you're a guy who shaves above, you gotta keep shaving until you hit bare skin or look like a freak.

I have no idea why I stayed anonymous this morning. It was early...

YOU READ MY MIND!!! I nearly died when I saw the title today. I have REALLY sensitive skin so this is a big problem for me too. Personally, I would just leave it or trim a little but it seems like "everyone's doing it" so to speak. Ugh societal pressures!! I tried A LOT of sensitive skin shaving cream and a sharp razor and that wasn't too bad. As for whether or not to actually do it, I've been going back and forth (primarily because of the horrendous side effects). I like the feel of the smoothness, but it definitely looks weird. Has the world turned into pedophile's in denial?? Ew! As for the poem, I'm still working on a sonnet for you! Thanks again for this topic. I'll be watching closely for a response!!

Well, since you asked...

I shaved it and it was wonderful for a while, but then the razor burn and the ingrown hair...ow!

It works much better for me to shave the lips (foldy, like Ray said, they don't get all burned and ingrown) and then trim for length the stuff in the front of the body.

That, or I let it all grow out and dread it.

Syl, I just thought of this: according to the Queer Eye guys, it's best to shave in the direction of growth. Kinda hard to do in practice, though.

Actually, I pluck my bikini line because the shave bumps got to be too much. However, ingrown hairs are still a problem. I have no idea what to do about that.

I guess I'm in the minority here, but I've tried all the alternatives--luxuriant bush, landing stips, heart and lightning-shaped shaved designs--and I like completely shaved the best by far. Why? It doesn't itch. It doesn't get caught in my thong the wrong way. Most importantly, hair is an impediment to good oral sex.

That's not to say I'm not turned on by another woman with a bush. Sometimes I am! But for me it's a matter of personal comfort and accessibility. And I haven't experienced any of those negative side effects.

I could never top AAG's limerick, but here goes:

Hair above my pussy,

Ray's right on the trick with shaving - keep shaving. The skin gets real pissed off if you do it once in a while, but every other day, every couple days, it gets used to the shave and the irritation factor goes way down. This is true for the head, the balls, the pussy, any place you wanna shave. Shave more, that's the trick.

I love my pubic hair. And there's a lot to love.

In my personal pubic hair history, I have done everything from shaved, waxed, trimmed, treezed, and in every other way tried to eradicate my curls, because I think it was somehow bludgeoned into my mind too, that men like girls to be, um, *girls," in a preadolescent, non-woman sense of the world.

I still remember my horror and shame and somehow... guilt... when the second man I slept with looked around down, heh, there and said, aghast, "It's like a forest!"


So I torturd myself for a long time trying to remove all evidence of being one of those nasty warm-blooded vertebrate animals of the class Mammalia.

Now, well, societally enforced pubic mutilation has joined the (extensive) list of things that seriously piss me off and will someday drive me up a tower with a high-powered weapon.

Such the rebel, I frequently sunbathe nude, admiring the glint on sunlight on the profusion of my dark-gold nether curls, knowing, and taking angry pleasure in the knowledge, that by society's standards I am too old, too heavy, and definitely too hairy to be flaunting my body beneath the weight of the hot Texas sun.

Why hasn't anyone responded to the silver haired question????!!!! I have a personal interest in this question! I have only ever had 1 gray hair on my head ... it was abou 18 years ago; it was plucked and another one never took its place.

But, lately, I have an outgrowth of silver pubes! Yes, it's true! no gray on the head but plenty down there! It's interesting and I suppose a good way to prepare me for the more public grays.

In regards to the shaving, waxing or letting it go natural: I am a fickle girl. Like hair cuts or facial hair, I like to mix it up. Sometimes bushy; sometimes completely clean. The only rule I try to live by is to keep it in my panties ... so any creeping growth gets attacked, vigourously! xxx

Hi all!

I believe this is my first-ever blog comment. I'm certainly no newbie to the 'net, but I just never got into the whole blog-thing. That is until I stumbled across Miss Syl's awesome blog!

More about me, later. I think I'm gonna get along so well with all you guys...!

So, without further ado, let me get to some random pube musings...

The Requisite Poem
Mary, Mary,
Quite contrary.
Shave that pussy.
It's so damn hairy.

Okay, now here are some thoughts...

Just to let you all know, my partner and I are lifestylers. Therefore, we come into contact with many genitals on a bi-weekly basis. Good hygiene is so important. So, here goes:

1 - I shave my balls and taint using a Gillette Mach 3 razor. They are silky smooth!

2 - For the main part (mons pubus, I guess), I use a small scissors, and trim the hair short, short, short.

3 - I think NO HAIR is kinda weird.

4 - I think a full bush is so annoying. You can always tell a 'new lifestyler', or someone 'curious', because they have a mound of pubes. When you swing a lot, you know it's gotta be very well maintained. You don't wanna have to worry about hairs in your mouth, and so forth.

5 - I actually found two gray hairs on my head the other day, AND one in my pubes. Kinda made me laugh. I'm 35.

6 - I am all for a small triangle or landing strip on women. I like it better than nothing at all.

7 - My partner always waxes, right up to her labia, ass, etc. Lately, she went for laser. It cost over a thousand bucks when all was said and done, but now she LOVES it. It's silky smooth, 28 days a cycle! She is very pro-laser.

8 - One thing that is a bit annoying, especially after having a partner that waxes/lasers... is when a woman shaves her labia, etc... Because if she shaves in the morning, or even the day before, by the time it's 3:00am, there's a bit of a six-o'clock shadow thing going on. I find it quite itchy on my face. My #1 activity in the whole entire world is giving oral sex, and I am pretty intense about it. So if it's a bit prickly down there, it will sometimes hurt my cheeks, above my lip, tongue, etc.

Of course, it's not the end of the world, but after laser or waxing, it's as smooth as silk. 24 hours after shaving, and it hurts a bit.

9 - Also, quick note... I do pass the razer up and down the shaft of my dick. Sometimes the odd stray hair grows out of my actual penis, and that ain't cool.

10 - I am not into the whole pink/dying thing.

Well, there you guys go! My first comment to a blog ever! Talk about too much information!

Solution to #5!! I have super sensitive skin, so even shaving my legs is hugely irritating. My solution is to use a hair buzzer, any generic type that is used to do home hair cuts. If you use this for your legs, you get a close cut that takes the appearance of hair away without getting the skin involved. This also works on your pussy and is the only way I'll work down there. It's cuts it close, but safe. The only caution is too keep a fairly new buzzer so that it doesn't actually snag any of those delicate hair and make you jump. Hope this helps others out there!

Let me speak for the younger generation when I say it isnt the 1960's hippie era anymore. Welcome to the 2000's feel free to groom yourself. The landing strip or the dorito chip is fine as long as it is well taken care of. Then again I am also a fan of the bald eagle. Anything is more appealing than a giant bush like some bad 1980's ron jeremy porno.

Personally I just put a guard on my clippers and trim it. Never heard any complaints for shorter or longer. Pubic hair doesnt impede my oral ability but getting pubic hairs in your teeth and itching your nostrils just doesnt quite set the mood.

You think pubic hair is rad
But it just looks so bad
Shave or trimmed

Just to add to my earlier post, the reason I didn't respond to the "what do you do with gray pubes" question is that I don't have any, even though I am over 50!

Let me speak for the middle generation and point out that hippie-bashing jokes about hair are probably older than you are, sweetheart.

The notion that hair == lack of grooming shows a comical lack of imagination. What about happy trails? What about that little patch of peach fuzz that some girls get right at the base of their spine that you can drive them nuts with if you tickle it just right? The generation that brought us the fetishization of the grotesque plastic boob would tell you to wax it off.

"I got a pubic hair in my mouth and it's a *disaster*". What babies. How do you deal with all the other various fluids and spooges and grossities of sex? Oh, the humanity! If you got semen on you you'd probably jump on a chair like the cartoon wife afraid of a mouse.

You all rock! I've been reading all the commentary, but have been super busy this weekend trying to ready my new MT verson of Sexeteria for prime time.

It would take me an age to answer everyone individually and I'm sadly too tired, though I'd love to, but a few quick points:

1) Why do people keep implying pubic hair is dirty and smelly, lack of grooming all of that? It's hair. Is the hair on your head dirty and smelly and ungroomed? Only if you don't clean it. Pubic hair gets washed just like hair on your head. You can also condition it. Clean, well cared for pubic hair isn't smelly or scratchy or any of those things.

STUBBLE, on the other hand, IS scratchy.

2) I'm all for free choice, so shave away all your hair if you must, but I have to say, speaking personally--this weekend, I went and deliberately looked at some photos of fully shaved women with their legs spread open this weekend and I'm sorry, it just icks me out. It looks wrong to me in every way. And I'm no fucking hippie. It's not some kind of political thing. I. Just. Think. Pubic. Hair. Makes. A Pussy (or a penis). Look. Prettier. It looks *normal*, and warm and inviting. A shaved pudendum looks *abnormal* and antisceptic. And seeing a grown woman's labia surrounded by a child-like, hair free pubis looks...*shudder*'s just creepy. I want to be able to say it's all good, but, you know what, I don't think it is.

I may still try it some day, just to test my point, but I like my pubes. I can't imagine being without them.

3) PLUCKING your pubic hair? Owwwwwwiiiiieeeeeee.
Are you people MAD? I'd rather get it all ripped out fast with a waxing than do them one by one like that. Good god.

4) The poems rock. Thank you, thank you. Neil, you plagiarised, but I love that musical, so will forgive you. Knotted, polkadotted...twisted, beaded, braided...

5) I'm with Hiromi. *I'm* not basing my aesthetic on porn stars or hippies. Just what's nice. So many problems come from people thinking they're supposed to look like people on TV or film.

5) There are a few films where women these days have sported natural bush. Secretary comes to mind. And she looked GREAT. What also comes to mind is this brutal scene in "Lovely and Amazing" where the lovely Emily Mortimer stands naked in front of Dermot Mulroney's character (they're both actors) after they've just had sex for the first time and asks him to evaluate her. He criticizes her pubic hair among other things. And she stands there and accepts it all with this smile on her face like he's helping her and it's the most powerfully emotional scene in this very subtle way. It's a perfect representation of what's done to women--and to men, too, really--on a daily basis that makes them start hating themselves.

Now I know you are either out of touch with the times or living in BFE Iowa if not both thinking fake boobs are horrible. I dont love them but I am indifferent about them.

I can only comment on what I know. Being in So Cal the only people not at least trimming are over 30, hippies, feminist, naturalist, or those new age people. Maybe in small town, USA it is still acceptable to let it grow freely. There are people who like it (obviously look at this blog) and a lot of people who tame the bush.

The problem isnt whether you resemble old or new porno stars. It is simply the fact that a lot of people change with the times. Other people just get stuck in certain time periods trying to re-live them or something.

It must be fun in "So Cal" with all your plastic tits and botoxed foreheads and bald pussies and fake tans and bottle blondes. You live in a place where they manufacture "artificial" and export it to the rest of the world so that middle America can buy it up at the Wal-Mart in 55-gallon drums. You'd be surprised how much you and your old lady actually look exactly like small town Louisiana mall rats. Brazilian and all.

Like I said before, I'll stick with Hiromi and Syl and Circe and other smart chicks who know what is really sexy, over some mass-market pop culture fetish that is foisted on us because "this is how we do it in So Cal".

(I wonder how they do it in Paris.)

Ray: I don't know how they do it in Paris, but I do know that all the girls in France do the hoochie-koochie dance.

Speaking of keeping up with the times, who the hell says "porno" anymore?

Overall comment re the "So Cal" thing...I lived in southern Arizona, which has a similar aesthetic to southern California--very hot and sunny all the time, women wear much less clothing than elsewhere in the country and show a lot of skin. As a result, plastic surgery and hair removal and tanning salons are rampant. The local papers are filled with ads for this stuff.

One might imagine if you'd grown up in that environment, and never lived anywhere else, you'd think that's how everyone does it and accept it is the way things are (should be) DONE, the same way when you're a kid growing up in NOLA, you might think everyone knew how to eat crawfish. Nonetheless, once people become adults, I'd like to think they're able to branch out and look for, discover, and weigh the benefits of alternate viewpoints.

But that whole argument just shows how moldable humans are. Adapting preference based on environment...I wish it weren't the norm, but it is. You can't like something you don't really know, I guess. Except me. I was dying to like things I didn't know (or at least try them) when I was a teenager. But I was certainly not the norm.

Certainly, though, hair removal is rampant everywhere now, not just in California.

Tory certainly has a right to his preference. But I highly doubt there are only 6 people left in California who still have pubic hair, even if it *appears* that way.

I also don't think the preference for pubic hair has any relation to "changing with the times." Everyone has a different style. It's like saying anyone who likes current rockabilly or punk or hip hop bands isn't changing with the times. You just like what you like. And then some choices have nothing to do with time. Look at Andy Warhol's hair. It stands out from any stylistic norm.

My pussy is a Warhol. (Except it's not white.) Heh.

Hiromi: I do. I like it, in a neo-retro kind of way. It amuses me. It's like calling a strip club a "tittie bar"--it just sounds grosser and skeevier.

But I primarily only use those terms to get that skeevier effect. When I'm not going for skeeve, I'd definitely say "porn."

I like a dame that can handle skin flicks. Shows moxie.

Oh dear, I'm over 30, I'm a feminist, and it seems I'm out of touch with the times. No wonder I'm consumed by this deep anxiety, this floating sense of meaninglessness. I kept wondering, why am I so miserable? Is it all the violence and suffering in the world today? Or is it merely the human condition?

Now I know the source of the problem. I'm out of touch with the times. My God, how will I ever put my life back together again?

I think I'll shave my pussy, just to get with the times and see if I feel younger and less feminist. That's gotta be a good thing, right?

I haven't had hair down there in, well, a decade. Since I was old enough to figure out how to use the razor. Thank goodness for Brazilians. Take it all off please. I don't care if my man is bare or not though. Makes no difference to me.

I think everyone should stop picking on Tory. He's just grumpy because no one has called him sweetheart since his ol'lady did while she played with his balls.

Do the rest of you not see that's a desperate cry for love and affection from you all? It could have been a long time since his ol'lady played with his (nicely trimmed) balls.

I hereby demand everyone write in and call him sweetheart at least once.

Tory, you are my little sweetheart, sweetheart.

Wow, you people are STILL talking abut pubic hair?

(scratches head)

You know, i'm a man with a strong preference for the sweet slick feel of bare pussy; but god knows hippie goddesses with natural bushes and armpits are hot. Just cause I have my 'druthers doesn't mean it's a big deal.

I don't quite get the passionate position one way or the other.

You pubic hair fans just need to get held down and shaved once or twice. And Tory, Sweetheart, you really need to get in touch with the hair. It almost never bites.

Well circe, my motto is always been go big or go home. So why not alienate as many people in one fell swoop as possible?

hiromi, who says porno? Obviously i say it.

I am not grumpy just pessimistic. There is a difference you know? Yes what i always wanted was for karl elvis to call me sweetheart. Now I can die in peace. Thank you Syl

Your life is not complete until I've insulted you, Tory. You have to work up to that though, cupcake.

An Inquiry Into Pubic Values...

I suck at Rubix cubes
I like big boobs
I've tried lotsa lubes
And yeah, I shave my pubes

But only once a week
Cuz I'm a Friday night freak
I like a pussy that's sleek
Where I can stick my beak

And when my lady goes down
I hate to see her frown
So I lift her gown
And I tickle her brown

You know it makes her smile
We haven't done it in a while
Her ass I'm gonna defile
She loves my backdoor style


...and there's more where that came from!
