I also find this very odd, to be honest. I do a little trimming, but just the “top” part, not down under. And sometimes I get lazy and don’t do any maintenance for a while, but I NEVER get pee on the hair and it never goes anywhere but straight down into the toilet!?!?! Although I am definitely not very hairy in general so maybe I have less hair down there than is typical?

The diversity is one of the things I love about this site. With so many people from all over, we’re all bound to have different bodies, likes/dislikes, experiences, etc. And sometimes it’s fun to share and discuss something we probably wouldn’t much in real life.
No worries, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with me, but always having shaved it was something I never really thought about… and after 20 some years of there not being more than a month of growth (not counting the year from the Depo shot I choose to pretty much ignore overall) … I really felt like I was missing something and unable to think outside my experience. Plus I thought it would be an interesting topic :).
I think part of why it skeeved me out so much was that I sleep nude, so if I get up in the middle of the night and pee, I don’t really want moisture smearing around on my legs or deal with being half asleep and trying make sure I pat dry/wash/whatever… I wanna stumble half awake, pee, and get back to sleep before I wake up lol. Other than that it was more a mild “ew” since I’m just not used to it.
Still all in all I’ll just keep shaving once a month for my own comfort… I’m too much a wuss in that area to wax, but I might look into the sugaring thing.

I don’t understand how that is physically possible or how you have to be shaped for that to happen. I get a monthly Brazilian wax. I swear by it and I will NEVER use a razor down there ever again. I might invest in laser soon though I’ve had great results with it on other body parts.

I’m not sure what you’re saying you aren’t sure is physically possible? If you mean peeing getting on hair … well I’m half Norwegian (dark hair thick … that side most were all Norwegian and if someone was blonde you’d ask who they were with) and on the other side German, Greek, Dutch, Irish, and French. I have pale skin and brown THICK hair on my head and any time I get a hair cut they tell me I have two or three crowns of hair… so I’m guessing maybe I have more thick/prevalent hair down below too… it’s definitely thick and wiry.
Also as some others have mentioned, for some. hair grows in the outer lip area… so to me it’s pretty easy to see why it happens: curly hair growing near pee hole and curling to get in the way. Having always shaved, it never occured to me I had to keep my legs spread to minimize getting hair wet (which other awesome posters pointed out).
I’m average height for a woman and maybe 15lbs overweight (yes yes I’m working on it… lazy happy married life, regular couple video games, and holidays didn’t help!)… so I don’t think it has much to do with my shape, but how/where and curliness of hair. It’s easy for me to see because this is all of why I started shaving to begin with! 🙂

I read this and laughed. I am all natural, used to trim it and once a year will shave my hair.
I don’t notice when I pee, however yes the dried blood on it is a bit messy but when washed in water it is all fine.
Nature wanted us to have pubic hair, hair on legs and under arms. I shave my arm pits.

That’s the thing…it lasts so much longer so they charge more. For people who go regularly, it evens out the same (and eventually less when it stops growing back). I will never shave again because of the bumps and how fast it grows back.
I’m lucky because I have a mobile lady who comes to my house and charges me a pittance. She’s not associated with a salon so she does everything cheap! Otherwise I’d be a offput by the inital $90 price tag too. She charges me $25.

I don’t want to comment on the pubic hair. I just want to say I so love your dad. And reading your story makes me miss mine like hell. So, assuming you still have him, love him extra for those of us who have lost our super cool dads. K?

I’ve always wanted to try sugaring! It sounds amazing… I can’t do it though 🙁 my salon told me it’s not good for people that get yeast infections because sugar breeds yeast like crazy. So alas I’ll just remain jealous of my non-yeasty friends that have it done!

I might be a little late to the party but I have the same problem (without being overweight) so I googled it and found this forum.
Firstly, I find it interesting with the theories about spreading the legs more and leaning forward a bit. I will try that.
Secondly, I wanted to add other ideas I’ve had. One is that, before we had the society we have today, we used to squat in a bush and not sit on a toilet as we do today:P Another is that, believe it or not, women’s urethras can “sit” anywhere! I just learned this from an urologist a few weeks ago (and I’m 24!) and that is that some peeholes are very low and almost at the vagina. Some women have it very close up to clitoris. Some have it in the middle, and so on. My urethra is very low AND it is somewhat pointed forward and not down, so I’m thinking that when I pee, it is not rare that it showers my whole vagina, rofl =/ I believe this is because of genetics + not squatting as “we used to do”(?) – there are actually Japanese toilets that allow you to squat. Anyhow, I am going to try spreading my legs more and lean forward now since I don’t want to do it in the bushes or live in Japan atm, haha.
Sorry for weird language use. I’m Swedish.

One word: Nair! The one for bikini area…put the cream on, I leave it on for about 12mins, it says 10-15mins I believe, wipe it off and the hair is gone. Then shower afterwards to get the remains of the cream off. Super easy and pain free!

If I am lazy and skip trimming/shaving I dont usually have an issue unless its period time…then I fell yucky. But thats probably because I use pads. I actually trim down there once or twice a month. But I am never completely bare…I would be super bumpy with so many ingrown hairs and itch like crazy. But I do trim as close as possible without irrating myself. And even with the minimal hair still present I don’t have problems with urine, etc.

Um….what???? I used to let it grow out when I was younger, and I’ve never had that problem. Its called wiping..lol. if you have that much of an aversion to it you might have a phobia, which is all in your head

I’m just impressed that you can get away with shaving once or twice a month.
As I admitted previously, I am a hairy man beast. If I didn’t epilate or wax a little bit of my legs/underarms/bikini line every day, the hair would just take over. Within a few weeks, I would probably look like a gorilla.
I mean, I probably wax my FACE once or twice a month, for crying out loud.
But in answer to your question, I keep on top of the waxing and the trimming, so I’ve never had this problem.

i feel like maybe your pubic hair grows in thicker and faster than mine because i have went 2 months or more when i was pregnant and my bush has never been soaked by pee lol.

Well, I’m even later in replying that you were in yours! But I agree with you. Not everyone is the same first off which is very important, our bodies are all different though similar.
And as others said the bit about spreading and leaning… having never let that hair grow more than a month since I was 15 and thinking it was a hassle then (just my own perception), I never had to spread legs or squat so while once pointed out makes sense, it wasn’t intuitive!
Very late response, but wanted to let you know I appreciate the suggestion. I’ve considered Nair. But I’m allergic to so much I’ve been afraid of putting something near my sensitive bits! But I still think about it and may actually try it some day.
Again late to reply but I enjoyed your response! Thankfully I don’t have to do much to my face (some plucking chin hair). I shave my underarms every other day (everyday if swimming) but with dark thick hair they have a 5 o’clock shadow always, and shave my legs at least every three days solely for me. I recently got teased by several old friends when I asked what razors they used on their legs as the one I used was discontinued. They were like “We closed the pool I’m not shaving my legs until Spring!”. I’m like great, but I like shaving my legs so … what do you use and like when the pool is open?!
