(Closed) Spinoff – Is pubic hair gross?

posted 7 years ago in Intimacy
  • poll: Do you think pubic hair is gross?

    Ewwwwwwwww! Yeah it is gross!

    I understand pubic hair has a purpose, I personally do not like it.

    My SO/FI/FH/DH has a preference so I shave/wax/laser to please him.

    Pubic hair is natural and I do nothing except trim and or shave bikini lines.

    My SO/FI/FH/DH prefers me natural looking so I do not remove.

    Polls rock!

    @trueblue14:  the way it looks isn’t bothersome to me, but the way it feels…all “moisty” and fuzzy and holds odor, is.just.revolting. And I’m 43. almost as soon as it started growing I trimmed or shaved it down. And will continue to, until my old, crippled, arthritic hands cannot hold a razor anymore!

    I keep mine trimmed, SO hates the bare look. It makes him feel like I’m a little girl. Plus why shave and get ingrown hairs?(my personal problem)

    @trueblue14:   While I may embrace my body I haven’t had a UTI since I started shaving.   Prior to shaving I was plagued with them even though I kept things trimmed quite short.

    I started shaving my pubic hair (ALL of it!) when I was 15 and have never let it grow back.

    I don’t think it’s gross. I trim mine just because it feel almost uncomfortable if I don’t and I believe DH trims.

    Personally for me I feel gross when I have pubic hair, just like I would feel if my underarm hair was long like it would be naturally if I didn’t shave. I don’t understand how it’s any different. I also don’t understand how it would make me look like a little girl. I have curves and am clearly not a child.

    @trueblue14:  I certainly understand why it’s there but I feel like the hair naturally traps odor (whether on a man or woman) and I don’t think it’s courteous to expose someone to that when the person going down on me. This is something I noticed on my own, not something anyone else told me. As I see it, there are two options: (1) get rid of most of the hair or (2) trim and make sure to shower before oral.

    @trueblue14:  So ironic you’re posting this! I just read an article last night that American Apparel added Merkins (pubic wigs) to their manniquins and they got some backlash for it. And I remember initially thinking, ew even though I generally don’t find it gross, I just don’t like it on me. Also, interestingly enough, way back when pubic hair was considered a good thing because it meant you didn’t have to shave it all off or lose it due to an STD/STI which is why they invented the merkin. Hows that for a random fact? haha.

    @tentwelvethirteen:  I saw those mannequins and I have no idea where the heck they get the idea that everyone was all BUSHY like that.  I went through puberty in the mid-70’s and even back then I kept things tidy and made sure all bikini lines were hair-free zones.

    I don’t necessarilt think it’s gross, I just don’t like it, just like I don’t think tomatoes are gross, I just don’t like them. It’s a preference. I don’t like how it feels for him to have hair when we do it because I don’t like how it feels when we’re doing it. I hate shaving down there, I think it’s a huge hassle, but I at least try to keep my bikini line shaved and the hair trimmed to a manageable length. If I shave too often I get really bad razor burn and that’s even worse in my opinion!

    I don’t think it’s “gross” but I prefer to not have it myself, I shave.

    I think it’s kind of gross, but I think itchy wstubble and ingrown hair is a lot grosser, so unless I can get something permanent (and expensive) like laser/electrolasis, it’s all-natural for me. It’s the easiest thing, and FI’s preference too.

    I don’t like it in my mouth, so I prefer his gone, thus  I give him the same courtesy.

    I don’t think of it as gross. Personally I see pubic hair or any body hair removal, as an aesthetic preference and not a hygiene issue.
