Should you shave pubic hair

10 Scary Reasons You Should Never Shave Pubic Hair

The war on pubic hair has officially begun! More and more studies are pointing to an increase in benefits in not shaving your pubic hair, even though that goes against the popular norm. Shaving body hair is nothing new. Ever since pornography became main stream, people across the globe are spending countless hours every week removing any evidence that hair existed anywhere but on top of their head.

The most common body areas depilated are the underarms, legs, pubic area, eyebrows, and face for females; and the face, abdomen, back, chest, groin, and legs for males. While some people prefer wax, shaving is the most common method used for the underarms, legs, and pubic area. Pubic shaving actually originated in ancient Egypt and Greece when prostitutes had to shave for both hygienic reasons and as a clear sign of their profession. Although female body shaving was established as the norm between 1915 and 1945, pubic hair removal did not actually gain a strong foothold until the 1980’s. So why are people starting to declare war on pubic hair? While there is a “visual” advantage to shaving, it may not be the best thing for you to do.

Before we look at the top reasons why you should never shave, in case you do, here are our favorite body groomers and trimmers.

Higher Risk For Genital Warts

afterhours.lifehacker.com

If you shave your pubic hair, you are putting yourself at a higher risk of contracting genital warts. Although pubic hair doesn’t completely prevent it, it helps avoid skin on skin contact with someone who may already have it. Genital warts are warts that are located near or on the genital areas. In a female, that means on or near the vulva (the outside genital area), vagina, cervix, or anus. In a male, that means near or on the penis, scrotum, or anus. Warts appear as bumps or growths. They can be flat or raised, single or many, small or large. They tend to be whitish or flesh colored. They are not always easy to see with the naked eye, and many times a person with genital warts doesn’t know that they’re there.

Skin Problems In Your Private Area

Removing your pubic hair  naturally irritates and inflames the hair follicles, leaving microscopic open wounds. Frequent hair removal is necessary to stay smooth, causing regular irritation of the shaved or waxed area. Many doctors say it is not unusual to find patients with boils and abscesses on their genitals from shaving as well as cellulitis, an infection of the scrotum.  Being on the private parts, these skin issues are often more uncomfortable than they would be on other parts of the body.


Pubic Hair Actually Protects You

Among protecting you from diseases and skin problems, pubic hair helps you to prevent foreign particles like dust and pathogenic bacteria from entering your body. Dust and bacteria are often times accredited to creating terrible irritation.

Pubic Hair Contains Pheromones

Scientists believe that pubic hair retains sexual secretions that we know as being called pheromones. This is what attracts us to each other. The body gives off more pheromones as you sweat and those secretions are retained in the pubic hair regions.

Pubic Hair Helps Control Your Body Temperature

It’s no secret that any hair helps regulate your body temperature. How exactly? Hair follicles help with sweating. There is a sebaceous gland on each hair follecule which releases oils onto the hair, which allows the oils to go up to the skins surface. When this oil evaporates it cools the skin because of its latent heat.

Pubic Hair Provides A Natural Lubrication

Pubic hair is also a natural thing to protect against body friction. Rubbing of skin can irritate and hair helps to decrease this problem. It helps to protect your sensitive areas from redness caused by the skin rubbing. This could also provide a protection of possible irritation during intercourse.

More Likely To Catch Molluscum Contagiosum

Shaving or waxing your pubic hair increases your risk of contracting a viral infection. Researchers of a new case study observed that the number of cases of molluscum contagiosum have risen along with rates of pubic hair removal. The finding confirms that hairless genitals may provide an opportunity for sexually transmitted diseases like molluscum to take hold, with shaving showing the strongest association. Molluscum contagiosum is spread easily, and the researchers suggested the virus may have spread primarily through self-infection caused by scratching skin irritated by shaving. Other skin issues were also noted among the study participants, which may also have been related to the pubic hair removal.

Saggy Labias

Not many people thought about this until Cameron Diaz brought it to our attention. In The Body Book,  Diaz makes her pro-pubic hair stance known. One of the biggest reasons she promotes keeping your hair is our inevitably droopy vaginas. “Let’s be honest: just like every other part of your body, your labia majora is not immune to gravity,” she wrote. “Do you really want a hairless vagina for the rest of your life?”

It Gets Expensive

Although it’s not necessarily a health reason, shaving your pubic hair can get expensive. Don’t you just hate when you have to pay $25 or more for a four-pack of razor blades? If you prefer waxing, laser hair removal or electrolysis, you may have a longer grow out time, but you are paying thousands of dollars for searing pain. In the end, is this really worth it?

Time Is Money

Not only does it cost a lot of money to shave your privates, but it is also very stressful and time consuming. It’s stressful because you’re often worried that one slip of the blade or scissors could result in some horrific pain. On top of the worrying, grooming is very time consuming. You spend so much more time shaving your pubic hair than you do shaving your face or legs. On top of that, the weekly upkeep adds hours to your bathroom time.

    Shaved or not, a guy’s tool needs to be kept in good health. More men need to regularly use a top drawer penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) to address issues like loss of sensation, persistent odor, dry/flaky skin, etc.

    well…loss of sensation is mostly caused by smoking, cirumsicion and long term exposure of the ‘head’. persistant odor is bad maintenance (wash regularly). and dry, flaky skin is actually caused by hari removal (hair helps the skin to contain moisture) or bactirial infection (probability increased by de-forestation)

    I keep my area all natural and I do not use nothing down there. I do not care what others think. I do not care about pleasing the opposite sex on how my down there area looks or smells like. I’m a real man and real men do not shave down there or treat that area with chemicals. I just use soap when I shower and takes it.

        I wouldn’t suggest shaving, but you can always just trim it with scissors from a manicure set (they’re just smaller scissors and make it easier)

        You could try braiding it. Or using a curling iron.

    Both me & my wife shave / wax it’s far better than having to deal with the bushes. We both enjoy being smooth for one other it makes giving & receiving oral sex so much more pleasurable, which we both enjoy giving to one another very much! Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it! A couple of smoothies.
