A good friend of mine asked me to jot up a piece on something no one really wants to talk about, but that everyone should probably know–PUBIC HAIR. “You should talk about the wolf, the landing strip, or being bare..” he said. So today, I’m doing just that. Times are constantly changing. Most people know that back in the day a lot of hair down there was in and as time keeps moving so does the pubic hair protocol. Let’s get into it!
I’m assuming that to him, ‘the wolf’ is a reference for a bush. The one thing our generation has yet to realize is that some women actually like having a bush. Now, if you’ve began to germinate a miniature forest down there, that’s no good. All in all though, I think it’s totally acceptable to sport a well-groomed, nicely trimmed bush if that’s your thing. Nicely trimmed means there is a defining line along the outside of the bush and your bush does not exceed the length of about a 1/2 inch. I’d say, if it’s so thick that you can’t see your skin at all… you might need to ‘take a little off the top.’
Fellas, what you all have to realize is not every woman wants her vagina to look the same way it did when she was six years old. Older men generally care for bush more than the men of our generation, but it shouldn’t be a deal breaker. I think the most annoying thing is for a man to be turned off by a woman who has a groomed bush when his pubic hair is not groomed at all.
The Landing Strip
I think most women are getting away with this one these days. We can’t really get away with having a bush, so the landing strip is almost like meeting half-way. Most women hate the process of shaving their vaginas completely bald because it’s a hassle! You have to carefully get in the nooks and crannies and do your best not to cut yourself or to leave any soldiers behind. Let’s face it… it’s less stressful to leave a little tuft of hair behind. It’s also really attractive when done properly.
Fellas, I don’t think most of you have an issue with this one. I really don’t see what the difference in this and bush is for you all, but I guess it’s kind of like the difference in you guys having a mustache instead of a lumberjack beard.
Bare Down There
If you hadn’t already guessed it, I’m not the biggest fan of being bald. I just think I’m too old to be walking around with a hairless vagina. There’s nothing wrong with people who do like it–it’s just not my cup of tea. If you prefer being bald, I think it’s super important to realize that you cannot do a half-assed job of removing the hair. I’d say waxing or at least Nair-ing is the best option for you. Not to mention, things like in-grown hairs and razor burns are way more visible and ten times as unsightly as a little tuft of hair. #IJS
Fellas, I mean really… it’s 2015… bare is just not in!
The Glory Hole
Don’t forget about the path to the glory hole ladies.. gross! No matter how I’m choosing to clothe my vagina… I always Nair the path! It’s a must!!!! No if, ands, or buts about it!
Fellas, I’m sure you can agree with me on this one.
Ultimately, no matter how you like to sport the hair on your vagina, it should NEVER go unkempt! Always clean; always trimmed. This was fun! I hope we’ve made things a little clearer for at least one person out there! Happy trimming!
