Why DO we have pubic hair? We seem to be a society bent on removing it regularly, air brushing it out of print media, forgetting that pubic hair serves a purpose - an quite a sexy one at that!
Pubic hair has several functions, some of which may actually affect your love life for the negative. So here in the name of fun and all things positive about a natural pubic hairstyle are some neat facts about your short and curlies:
It Smells Good To Your Partners
Your pubic hair traps pheromones. Those 'odourless' chemicals that are emitted by our body that make us attractive or unattractive to potential mates - yep, well your pubic short and curlies are a veritable scented garden for these little goodies!
Your waxed or shaven pubic mound won't hold or store as many pheromones, potentially limiting your sexy scent...
They Protect Your Vulva
Just like your nostrils have cilia and you have eye lashes, your pubic hairs actually prevent dust and bacteria from making its way to your urethra and vagina. Surgeons discovered that removing hair actually increased infections!
Humans Are The Only Species That Grow Pubic Hair
There's nothing like being unique - it's only the human teenager who sprouts hair from odd places as they reach sexual maturity. Go us!
We Actively Remove Hair When We Are Feeling Horny
We remove hair to appear sexually attractive, and are more likely to remove hair in the early honeymoon stages of a relationship, according to a study by Tiggemann and Hogson.
So why do we insist on waxing, shaving, depilating, vajizzling, tweezing and otherwise modifying our beautiful bodies? I would love to know!
Most of us have enjoyed the new sensations of a brazillian, struggled through the painful regrowth of shaving, shuddered at IPL and considered some of the more exotic hair removal techniques, honey anyone?
Do you go bare down there? I'd love your comments!
