(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:  I wouldn’t say ‘gross’, but I personally don’t like it and get rid of mine completely. I dislike all of my body hair (except eyebrows) so I get rid of all of it.

    I can’t wait for the day when women are done being ashamed over their pubic hair.

    Waxing it all off?  I can’t comprehend how it’s come to that.   You want to do a bikini? Fine but the Full Bald look?  That’s when I start to think the pressure of society has gotten to ya.  

    BRING BACK THE 80s BUSH!

    @FutureDrAtkins:  “I think because of social media and the massive amount of porn our generation grew up with, we have been conditioned to get rid of pubic hair. One movie that comes to mind is Waiting which definitely portrays having a full on “bush” in a negative light.”

    Which is too bad, when you think about it. There isn’t and shouldn’t ever be anything wrong or gross about pubic hair. Media, pop culture, and sometimes even other people, love to shame people for the choices they make about their bodies. If somebody wants to either keep or be rid of all the hair on their body, it’s their right to make that decision. There isn’t anything wrong with either decision.

    @musical-lady:  It is sad, but it is honestly how I feel. To me, hairless men and women are more attractive. To some people, hair is more attractive. I honestly don’t care what anyone else besides FH and I do, and think people should do what makes them happy! Just not for me.

    If I shave with razor I will be bumpy and itchy down there. My hair is course which makes me prone to ingrown hairs. I have to use a electric trimmer to get close as possibly but still hair remains. And I use Nair for bikini area. I actually prefer less hair but not completely hairless…im sure Fiance prefers all the way hairless but oh well he gets what’s offered lol.

    I feel like the purpose or benefit of having pubic hair has been greatly reduced in modern times.. we’re not naked people walking around outside all the time, allowing our most sensitive of body parts to be exposed to pathogens from the whole entire world.. Pubes, and all other body hair, is there to protect us from sickness and disease. But we live in a cleaner world now. We wear laundered pants, most of us wear underpants that we change everyday (hopefully).. our bodies are much more protected, so we don’t need to be as hairy or furry as other animals.

    to me, pubes are a hassle. they itch, they stink. the way they look isn’t what bothers me as much as how they feel. I don’t hate them on my guy, I prefer they are somewhat trimmed and not totally rampantly wild.. on myself, I hate having any pubes. I just like feeling smooth like satin all over my body. not coarse and wiry

    @trueblue14:  I definitely don’t think it’s gross, actually I would feel kinda bare and usual without it! Fiance is the same, he likes the natural look as opposed to being bare and looking a bit ‘childlike’.

    I don’t find it gross at all. In fact, I find it more unnatural and odd when someone is totally bald downstairs.

    My husband prefers us both to be completely hairless down there, but I prefer us both to be well trimmed, but maintain a natural sized “triangle.”

    Occasionally I will shave totally to make him happy, but mostly I go for comfort and what I like best on my own body.

    Not gross but I have always got rid bar a landing strip because I prefer it

    Have never asked SO his opinion he has never complained though I know that completely bare freaks him out

    I don’t care what other people choose to do with their pubic hair but I like to have mine waxed off. It is my choice as I prefer it that way. Not because I’m ashamed of it or think it’s gross, but because I like it smooth. My Fiance doesn’t care either way. Just because I wax doesn’t mean I don’t find my nether regions beautiful Wink I just like to groom it, like the rest of my body.

    I waxed for a while, but it gets really costly. I started just shaving what I wanted to shave. I don’t like the completely bald look on myself. I feel odd. But I also don’t want a full animal rug down there either!

    I don’t see what the big deal is if people find it gross. There are quite a few things about our bodies that are natural but still gross.

    For every person that says it’s gross, there’s someone tht says being bare is childlike and weird and men that like it must be pedophiles which is just as “wrong” to say. Who the hecI cares how others feel about their body hair and what they do with it?!

    Yes, I think it’s gross, just the same as I think leg hair, armpit hair, the Kardashians and ketchup are gross. I think a lot of things are gross. No need to pity me or think I am brainwashed or trying to fit an ideal because I think it’s gross, no one knows whether I have hair or not, so it’s not like I’m trying to fit in. I’m guessing women who do it are doing it for personal reasons because no one knows but their partner. I don’t buy the ‘it has a purpose’ argument because then no one would shave their armpits, either. No need to get defensive about it either way, if you don’t want to shave it then don’t, if you want to remove it, then remove it.

    @FutureDrAtkins:  I’m sorry, my comment was not a dig at you. What you said about the media though made me think about how they often try to push what an ideal body should look like, whereas I think people should just do what they want regardless of social influences.
