I think we can all agree that the current fashion among women for shaving their pubes is just that: a fashion. As such, it's subject to change. However, I would say that, unlike many fashion trends--like bee-hive hair dos and false eyelashes-- the desire to eliminate all pubic hair is part of a larger, and to my mind very disturbing, trend: the rejection of natural beauty in favour of the radical remodeling of the female form. Breast implants and other forms of cosmetic surgery, botox treatment, tanning beds, and, yes, pubic shaving, are indicative of a powerful modern aesthetic: namely, the idea that natural endowments are inadequate, and even unattractive, and so must be re-engineered.

As a life-long admirer of the female form, I've never understood this line of thinking. I accept that there is much that women can and should do to enhance their beauty, if they so choose. Cosmetics, jewellery, and sexy lingerie are obvious examples that come to mind. But I'm troubled and saddened by the lengths to which so many women go nowadays to transform their bodies. Call me old-fashioned, but I don't think you can improve on nature. Advocates of pubic shaving, like fans of genetically modified foods, are of course entitled to hold a contrary point of view!

It may surprise many to discover that shaving has been in practice with the Romans, Greeks, Egyptians, and other ancient civilizations. Sculptures, painting, and relics of those periods reflect the beauty in a hairless form. The female body is wonderful...its own curves and softness...absolute wonderment in beauty and grace...the more add ons to a piece of work, the more that is taken away from its purest beauty. Hair is disappearing a little at a time with each generation. In the grand scheme of things, and teh big picture in time, it will all be gone from the human body! So what nature intends can be debated until we are blue in the face. The fact is, humans have free will to make decisions, and they are making the decision to remove pubes because they feel it enhances appearance. In this post, I am trying to keep emotion out.

Nature...past present future, is chock full of changes. There are small bones in many species of snakes that show where they used to have legs! Did they used to have them or are they going to grow them in future evolution? We are not expert enough to say, though science hypothesizes that legs were phased off the snakes thousands of years ago. Likewise, the human body was covered with thicj fur as a deterrent to elemental exposure. With time however, that hair began to thin out, and rather rapidly at that. When the mastery of textiles, it was virtually unnecessary, so it has gradullay thinned out more and more. Now I'm no anthropologist, I find the subject deathly boring, but I can tell the difference between cro magnons and todays homo sapiens...There are also movements in action that would like to make nude recreation accepted on beaches, in parks, and peoples own yards. It, of course, is being met with some resistance...but nude recreation was the norm pre-victorian days.

OK, I think this topic has been to death! Shave if you want, don't shave if you don't want to...just knock out the labelling, and all will be fine!

The lips should be bare and the top trimmed.It looks much better that way.It's in going down on a woman,that a bare vulva earns it's kudos.Hair just get in the way when your in the thick of it.So defoliate.To women,if you were to give a bj to your s.o. and he had hair right up to the gland how would you like it.Well if your naturally hairy it like going down on a fur pelt.Really ladies a shaved vulva looks much better.So,thank you ladies if you shave.

For a guy it should be trimmed.So when a woman gives a bj she doesn't get hair balls.

As for the argument that pubic hair is there for a reason.Well let's debunct it.A good percentage of women are partial bald even in adulthood and they have periods too.They are none the worse for wear.Humans have no pubic hair for the 1st yrs of their lives.We are none the worst for wear.If it was real necessary to have pubic hair we would be born with it.End of that argument.

Bare vulva.It's basically esthetics and the time and trouble of shaving.Shave it when you shower.Not a big deal.Ask your man too trim.There's so many affordable hair clippers out there.

I don't follow the logic of the previous contributor. The fact that children lack pubic hair is no argument for its removal. The writer seems to be forgetting about puberty--a necessary and natural part of growing up. Pubic hair is one of the signs of sexual maturity. Its absence denotes the opposite! As for the cliche that we'd have been born with pubes if the good Lord had intended us to have them, the sheer illogic of that claim hardly needs to be discussed. By that brilliant deduction, one might just as well dismiss breasts as unnecessary--after all, girls are not born with them.

And to say that pubic hair serves no biological function is to ignore scientific evidence to the contrary. Pubic hair traps pheromones that heighten sexual arousal. And what man can resist the alluring sight of a woman's dark pubic triangle, glistening with pussy nectar and promising access to a hidden garden of delights? I for one am inexorably drawn into the furry vortex of a woman's Bermuda triangle!

pubic hair may trap the pheromones, but so what! It would be of concern if no pheromones were produced at all. The hair traps a lot of things, and most of them aren't at all as pleasant as the pheromones. The skin will keep the pheromones about, except maybe during oral....lol Pheromones are meant as an olfactory indicator for sexual readiness, they are an attractant, after they have done job in assisting in the acquisition of a suitable partner, the rest is up to us. Our brains take over, sending signals to our bodies to ready for sex. Hair has no place in that equation, with the exception of visual esthetics between partners. Like I have said before, there are more that obvious signs seperating women from little girls. A woman can be without pubic hair, and still not be mistaken for a girl.

I do agree however, that if I had to be lost anywhere, it would be between a womans legs...but since forests have all kinds of critters in them, I think I would prefer a small oasis! :wink:

I really must take exception to the implication that a woman's pubic hair is unhygienic and therefore should be shaved off. There is nothing unsanitary or unpleasant about a woman's bush if she pays attention to the normal requirements of cleanliness. It is a strange and disturbing kind of overkill to suggest that only a shaved pussy is a clean pussy. This is a pernicious idea that can only give young women additional and entirely spurious grounds for worrying about their bodies. A woman's hairy vulva is a playground of sensual pleasures. It is delightful to gaze upon, to touch, to smell, to taste, and finally--well, you get the general idea! Shaving is an aesthetic choice and nothing more.

I have to agree! Shaving is simply a choice! Why do men shave their face? Because they choose to do so! Why do women shave their pubic region? Because they too have chosen to do so!

Whether you choose to accept it or not, but women have the ability to make choices for themselves, so if they choose to shave, then more power to them.

I myself prefer the look of a shaved pussy, but that is my choice. Either way, whether my future wife chooses to shave or not, it is her choice, I will lover her either way. As for myself, I prefer to shave my body, and yes I have my pubic region. Why? Because it is my choice to do so!

Women and men, if you wish to shave, then go for it. If you like the 70's look, then go for it. If you like to keep it nice and trimmed, then go for it.

If you have ever wondered why people want to shave their pubic region, and as to what it would feel and look like to be shaved, then shave it off and find out for yourself. Don't be afraid, it will grow back.

Don't knock another persons desires and/or choices if you have not tried it yourself.

To those who like to shave -- SHAVE!
To those who don't -- Then LET IT GROW!

So far, the conversation has been dominated by men. I'd be interested to read what women have to say on this subject. After all, we're talking about a woman's most intimate part: her c***. So to all you ladies out there--we've already heard from the laddies--do you shave, trim, or let nature take its course? Do tell!

If you read my post a little more carefully, you get past my personal preference for the shaven look, and see that I also posted the inference to choice in that it serves as an estheitc thing between partners! I can also assure you, that many women also find smooth or shaved closely mouch more hygenic than the bushy look.

Whether or not you agree with shaving is your choice, just as the act itself is. No one can tell you to do something that isn't right for you, because you have final veto option. A woman's body is a truly wondrous miracle...my whole dislike for body hair comes from pure disdain for my own. But I do prefer a woman smooth, so that the miracle that is she...isn't encumbered by what I consider a blight on an otherwise perfect creature!

I'm a 32 year old male who is normally very hairy. I have been shaving my entire body for about a year and a half now. Luckily my back is naturally hair-free except for some peach fuzz on my shoulder blades.

I started doing this because I found out by accident really, that being hairless helps in healing wounds related to acne and other cuts. Little secret, 7.5 years ago, I was in a bad car accident and I got a nasty cut on my left elbow. As you may know, cuts on your elbows or knees are very hard to heal up. I went nearly 5 years with continued scabbing and breakings open of the cut on my elbow...until I shaved the hair off of it. It healed up in practically no time.

Well, my accident gave me a spinal injury (I'm a tetrapallegic, (incomplete quad)) which affects normal presperation. Because of this, lingering dirt on my skin constantly caused acne break-outs. Because shaving the hair off my elbow helped with that problem, I decided to do my entire body for the same reason, because I was going through tubes and tubes of anti-acne creams, etc. and nothing would ever work. Shaving has helped tremendously, but I still require a nightly shower. (I would normally shower in the morning.) I noticed that just showering at night helped along with the shaving.

Anyway, since I've been shaving, I notice that I love the feeling. (Of what I can feel, that is. I have feeling in most of my body, just not 100% of the fine nerve sensations normal folks do.) Besides, most male porn stars are completely shaved so I figure why not. Seems to be a growing fad. In fact, I used to be very sensitive about my overly body hair growth...especially my big hairy ass. :lol:


Back in college, 10 years ago, I did shave my pubic area and loved it then. I also tried shaving my chest once, and got razor burn and red bumps like crazy and it hurt like a sonofabitch. Also did my legs once back then and it felt really strange. But now due to my less than normal feeling sensation, shaving doesn't have that feeling.

I'm even thinking about permanent hair removal. There's a radio frequency emitter tweezer system for $100 that claims to be as effective as electrolysis that I'm thinking of trying out. Only bad thing is that I'd have to let my hair grow back for a week or two. Ouch!

I beg to differ. In fact, the "nautral" smelly nature of women's pubes was one reason why I used to not be attracted to having intimate relations with women. You know the whole "fishy" smell. I always equated women's oder to sucking on a sour apple sucker. If you have, you kinda know where I'm going with that. It may taste good, but the oder coming out of your mouth directly into your nose is NASTY.

Without pubic hair, one doesn't get that oder. Oh, BTW, the overly long post above about the spinal injury condition is me. One thing I've noticed since shaving is that not only is there no more oder coming from that area, there's no more crotch itching either. In other words, I don't wake up in the morning with the uncontrollable urge to scratch my balls, it you know what I mean. I wake up stroking it instead. ;)
