Brazilian waxes are fun.

Ok, maybe ‘fun’ is an exaggeration. But if you’re a woman who subscribes to the idea that her lady parts should be as neat and, er, as user-friendly as possible, than you may agree with the aforementioned statement.

Most women I know have their personal hair removal routines. Whether it’s shaving, waxing, using a dilapidating cream, or a mixture of all methods, most of us are invested in the way it looks down there. And who doesn’t love to get home, look in the mirror, and say with confidence, “I look good.”

But who are we doing this for? Our mates or ourselves. There are no statistics on the popularity trends of shaving everything off, but it seems to be prevalent enough for men to take public stances on the issue.

Recently, Bill Maher re-aired a statement on his popular late night political talk-show Real Time, lamenting about how much he misses the our “pubes”:

“Bring back a little pubic hair. Not a lot. I’m not talking about reviving that 1973 look that says I’m liberated … and I’m smuggling a hedgehog. I just want a friendly, fuzzy calling card that tells me I’m not going to get arrested.”

During a natural hair discussion on Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers, a man was a little more hostile in his critique of black women’s hair down-under, rudely denigrating women who wore weaves for he claimed “the carpet don’t match the drapes.”

So what do you think about how you look, down there? Are you happy with your private parts?

  1. Well, I like to have mine trim. Not slightly bald. I will only go bald if my man asks for it. But a lil bush is nice. Its just that when it gets out of hand, things get caught and a nasty mess I dont dont want to deal with. But a trim is nice. I think of it as a fade for my vjayjay

  2. The carpet doesn’t match the drapes? Since when are some people’s pubes stick straight? I’ve never heard of that. And who says they have to match perfectly? Can’t they just be the same color? Dang. LOL

  3. I like neatness for the most part. It’s convenient.

  4. well, i like mine trimmed very low in a landing strip or V-shaped bcuz i AM a grown woman plus i find it a lil sexy:)) once upon a time i did prefer it bald but tht was kinda wierd whn i sweat on the pubes there was nothing to wick it away :))

  5. Love a nice, neat, trim y’all. Been trimming for years and never ooked back! I feel crowded when the bush gets out of hand!

    i edge the sides with a depilatory and trim the main bush with scissors because they are so naturally straight that they’ll poke to through the fabric of my undergarment if i don’t trim them.

  9. Men are always going to want a little hair. Landing strip here if I’m about to meet my man otherwise I could care less

  10. I shaved since 15. My bf at the time told me he didn’t like the feel of hair when doing his business so I conformed. Can’t live without it

  11. I took a vow to not cut my pubic hair as well as a vow of celibacy for 2012. My pubic hair has never been more manageable than it has since i stopped cutting it. i used to trim on a regular basis, as well as veet a few times, but as of right now, i am truly amazed at my pubic hair! it’s not some all over the place, bush mess. it’s contained, and soft, and everything i didn’t expect it to be once i put down the razor.

  12. I find it suffocatingly hot and often painful. I feel better when it’s off.

    ALL of it.


    A grown woman should have some hair. Pardon me, but I don’t like a woman that is bald down there, as it just doesn’t look right. Hairy is sexy!
