“To shave or not to shave,” a common question between women and men.
But, have you ever asked yourself what’s the purpose of pubic hair? According to www.esybron.org a site dedicated to “…advance woman’s knowledge of her innate sexuality,” you could be shaving/waxing away your “sexy” by removing your pubic hair. So let look at the pro’s and con’s of the hair down there!
According to Esybron.org, one of the advantages of keeping pubic hair is it traps and hold pheromones (your “sexy”), which are odorless chemicals the body creates. The nose can smell pheromones without one consciously knowing, which can increase sexual attraction from a partner. During sex a woman can especially take advantage of hair down stairs. Apparently a hairy vagina can enhance feelings on the clitoris during oral sex. Pubic hair also provides warmth to the genitals, and keeps foreign particles from entering the vagina.

Still undecided? Lets take a look at the pro’s and con’s of giving that love jungle a nice bald fade. Well one advantage of shaving/waxing is it eliminates smells caused by vaginal secretions, urine, and tissue that can become trapped within the pubic hair. A lot of people have also reported that they like the feeling of being bare down there. The con’s for getting rid of your love bush are the increased risk of heat rash or chaffing. Pubic hair acts as a barrier to prevent irritation to the skin during sex. Giving the kitty a bald fade can also cause in-grown hairs and shaving rashes, and most shavers experience itching when the hair starts to grow back.
Punk Rocker Amanda Palmer and The Young Punx created a racy and controversial song called “Map of Tasmania,” a record that provides female empowerment to keep their vagina’s hairy and even puts down women who do shave. Here are a few of the raunchy lyrics “…Soft and sweet and shape like a triangle/Some girls want no shape and they shave it all/I think sad it hurts with the stubble/Walk in them look like an eight year old!/I say grow that shit like a jungle give ‘em something strong to hold onto/Let it fly in the open wind/If it get too bushy you can trim…” In the video they give up-close views of a variety of decorated vagina’s from one’s with hair rollers to one’s designed to resemble a bird’s nest (To watch the music video click here )
