Hello,this is my first post so please take it was on me. As the above says, why do us girls feel the need to shave our privates. On a recent episode of TOWIE Chloe said just this. Don't get me wrong I shave when the time of the month is due but I like to grow it in-between times. My B/F loves my natural look. I have dyed blond hair but am naturally dark so he loves the contrast. He also says it looks a bit perverted when smooth. I know this a personal choice thing but am just looking for comments. Also it helps me feel clean.:)

First Im shaved right now. I guess its just whats in now a days.
I like the natural look as seen in the 70ties. I dont know if it will ever have a comeback. Who knows?

It really is just a social thing. People pin it on multiple causes, so believe what you will. A book I read recently, How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran talked about it a bit, suggesting that it comes from our culture and generation's exposure to pornography. I'm far from an expert on social trends, though.

Daniella98

Maybe porn is a trendsetter. I dont know if pornactresses started first or they just follow the trend... By the way (I watch a lot of porn) in my view, the majority of porn actresses has hair down there. Not particularly bushy like in the 70ties but some kind of a tasty hairdo.
So if porn is the trendsetter, hair is on its way back.

Well some do like it, some do it because they think a boy would not like them with pubic hair. I also know that a lot of girl shave because of pressure in school or if they do sport. I also think sometimes it is a media thing, I think razor advertisement is not only effective for legs or armpits. Ok that I do shave too, but I do like my pubic hair. But I would not recommend it for someone else, because I know how this feels

July 26th, 2015, 07:56 PM
I like to shave around the labia and around the edges of the pubic area, but other than that, I just trim when it gets a bit long. I find the itching of hair growing back unbearable, but I like the clean feeling of less hair.

LucieP
July 26th, 2015, 10:54 PM
Ive always shaved or waxed, I just like the way it looks and feels and so do my partners male and female. Ive been with a couple of girls who left it "natural" and honestly it was kind of gross.

July 27th, 2015, 02:37 AM
Well, I think me and myB/F opened a can of worms here. Nice to hear mixed replies. As I said I do it for hygiene only. Shame to see a lot of "it's what boys expect". I am certainly no feminist, but I agree with a few others that peer pressure, advertising, expectations etc play a really big part. Thanks for all the replies. Just be natural!:D

I am deathly afraid of it showing through or around a swimsuit so I that is the main reason I do it this time of year. But others have said, its cleaner and I also like how it looks and feels. I don't in the winter tho, except the times I had swim in gym.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how bad does waxing hurt?

LucieP
July 29th, 2015, 08:27 AM
I would say a '4'. I take a couple of Advils before hand which really takes the edge off. I usually get 5 or 6 weeks between waxes, the last week is a bit disagreeable as you have to let the hair grow out a few millimeters for the wax to be able to grab it. Ive never had a problem with ingrown hairs as I exfoliate once a week between waxes and if Im wearing a super high-cut bikini bottom I always put lotion on any bare skin as freshly waxed skin burns real easy.

The worst part for me is just the embarassment of having to open your legs to a stranger and get on all fours, which is what you have to do for a full Brazilian, but Ive used the same beautician for ever and shes nice and makes jokes. In CA my mom had to give permission bc Im only 15 but she doesnt have to come with me to every session. Hope that helps!!!!!

The good thing about waxing is that hair growth diminishes over time, my mom has almost no hair growing on her legs bc she's been waxing since she was a teen. But before I go to college Im getting everything lazered off.

Hey Lucie, have you looked into the cost of doing so? Want to eventually but heard it can be really expensive. Is there a particular laser treatment that you think is better than the rest?

July 31st, 2015, 05:08 AM
I had all mine removed when I was like 16-17 when my Mom took me to the place that got rid of all of it with a laser. I just go in once a year for touch ups and shave or pluck any new strays. My Mom is now letting my younger sister do it also.

I'm not really sure why so many girls shave, my guess is that they think guys like shaved pubes. All the porn you see is with girls that are fake and shaved, so boys just get impressions from that.

I don't shave, I like the way it looks and feels, and I know that pubes are there to help keep germs and stuff out of your vagina. The scent of pubic hair is also a huge afrodesiac for boys. Something about pheremones and stuff.

I can only agree with you in all aspects. Boys are in my experience no problem, and they should like you for who you are. The hygienic argument that some mentioned , I do not understand. Everyone of us does wash themselves under the shower or in the bathtub. so you are clean , the pubic hair would be only then a problem if oneself would not wash for a longer periode, but then both styles would be unclean.

Pubic hair isn't necessarily dirty, but it FEELS dirty and gross. Also, no matter what people say, less hair = less places to get gross and easier to clean. That's reality. So yes, hairy can be just as clean and it is personal choice. But to me, pubes are just disgusting, sorry, do what you want, but I'm definitely never having any on me LOL.

Honestly, I do it because it makes masturbating better. When there's no hair down there, my juices makes it really slippery when I'm wet so my hand moves smoother and quicker across my pussy and clit.

I basically keep my area clean shaven during the summer because when I wear a bikini at the beach I don't want any strays popping out. During the colder months I don't completely shave there, I just keep it trimmed.

I like the way it feels, it's so silky smooth. But I am going to try and grow a landing strip just to see how I like it. It could take a month at the rate it's growing ahhhh.
I don't think it had to do with porn for me because I was shaving it off long before I ever watched porn.

Their body their choice, I suppose it's like anything permanent - know you won't regret it. I KNOW I'd never regret it. I HATE pubic hair and find it totally repulsive.

Sublime Demonz

I definitely don't do it because I feel like that's what girls in society must do. I don't do it for anyone else, either. I started doing it a couple years ago because I really just don't like the hair, and for me it's easier to keep clean if I'm shaved. Sometimes I do grow it back out, but once it gets past a certain length I get rid of it again. I always make sure I shave before my period starts, too.

I haven't had a boyfriend for a while and get bored with stuff quite quickly so decided for fun to let it grow at the end of last year. I didn't mean to pick up one night but did and he was quite surprised. He didn't stop or anything but I could tell he wasn't expecting it! I left it on for a few weeks after but went back to what I normally do. To be honest, it was a bit gross. It got a bit more smelly and it felt gross.

It's fashion, isn't it?

No idea who started it but there's reasoning behind it. I can see it swinging back the other way potentially if fashion dictates but for purely ascetic reasons I don't think it will be soon.

!please dont read if you have a weak stomach or find things gross!

someone said something about porn, and not being sure whether actresses shaved first, or if the trend came after.
here's my take on it,
In the olden-olden days shaving was dangerous because you had to do it with an actual knife. So most women would have it natural simply because of the convenience and lack of danger.
then pictures/ videos came, and with it porn. To start off with porn stars had it natural, that's what people were used to seeing. A porn star may have many different partners in a short space of time compared to a typical woman. Then came a little bug that I learnt about in Health and Biology. I can't remember what they're called but, these microscopic bugs cling to the pubic hairs of humans. They make us very itchy and can be transmitted from host to host when pubic areas come into contact with each other. Itchyness makes the pubic area red, which isnt a good look on camera. Shaved, the problem was solved. If there were no hairs for the bugs, the girl wouldnt get them. so henceforth the pornstars shved themselves.
the end

A porn star may have many different partners in a short space of time compared to a typical woman. Then came a little bug that I learnt about in Health and Biology. I can't remember what they're called but, these microscopic bugs cling to the pubic hairs of humans. They make us very itchy and can be transmitted from host to host when pubic areas come into contact with each other. Itchyness makes the pubic area red, which isnt a good look on camera. Shaved, the problem was solved. If there were no hairs for the bugs, the girl wouldnt get them. so henceforth the pornstars shved themselves.
the end

Do you mean Crab louse (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crab_louse)? And have all people who are not shaved this bugs?

It might be that one, I'm not sure, it was a couple of years ago since I learnt about it.

And no, alot of people who like to keep it natural don't have the bug, because they simply haven't come into close contact with a person who does have it. But those who have alot of close contact? (like porn stars) they increase their chances of getting it every time they do the deed, which is quite often.

Let's say there's 1 million people on earth. For someone who only does the deed with one person, their chance's are 1 in a million. For someone who does the deed with 10 people, their chance's are 10 in a million, or 1 in 100 thousand. The more people they do it with the higher the chance.

Hope that explains it.

More feminine for me. The masturbation is better when nice smooth... :)

I totally agree smooth is best, I only got hair around 13yo and started to shave it straight away to stay smooth like I had always been. :yes:

I shave because I personally do not like hair down there. I feel cleaner when it's shaved.

I trim but it's more of a cuture thing in Western Civilization to be shaven completely. In the US bushes are out of style and most people have the thought that it means you are dirty or have more chances of catching an STD or STI. Smh but I don't mind a little hair

Well, full bush is out of the question for me, but after giving it some thought, I'll probably leave some when I get more growth than I have now. A "landing strip" perhaps. We'll see. :)

Well everyone will shave or not shave for different reasons depending on their preference. I do it around that time of month because I feel more clean that way. I don't like it totally shaven all the time though, very little is fine with me.

yeah, this is exactly right imo and very well said. for example, I was born in the US and have lived here my entire life, but my ethnicity is south asian and I still have lots of family in that part of the world... shaving pubic hair would be considered quite taboo over there, and tbh I don't think it's something I could even discuss with my female cousins who are around the same age as me. Even if your reason(s) for shaving have more to do with personal comfort/feel rather than anything that has to do w/ sexuality, in societies that are sexually repressed, people just aren't going to see it that way.

lol me too! I used to shave it completely, but decided I liked the way it looked a little better with a small amount of hair. I leave a thin landing strip now and I as well as my partners seem to think it's very sexy =).
