Pubic hair - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I don't shave. I just epilate bikini line. I've never had a guy ask for me to be bare. I suggested it once to see if my hub would prefer it but he sounded turned off by the idea. He likes the mystery of what the hair is hiding. Apparently, in Japan it's considered more attractive to keep it.
I don't think I'd ever actually go for the full bare look. But then I don't live a very outdoor beachy lifestyle either so I don't have to worry.
I also think as it is a secondary sexual characteristic removing it is like looking pre-pubescent again. Like if I dieted my hips and boobs away. This area also hold pheromones (what we are REALLY responding to apparently, not eachother's deodorants and perfumes) better when it has hair.
I know that some cultures have been doing full body hair removal for ever so it's actually nothing new, it's just come more recently to the West and influenced by porn.
I think if I was a teen now I might be more influenced by this fashion now but I'm too old to change!
