Keep this information in mind the next time you feel the need to reach for your razor! Your pubic hair serves an important purpose.
That being said, the decisions around your body hair are totally up to you. If you do decide to remove your pubic hair, that’s ok too. Just be sure that you use a clean razor, replace dull blades, and keep an eye on any cuts, bumps, or inflammation.

Over the past several decades, smooth, bare skin has become mainstream for millions of people, regardless of their gender. Many enjoy shaved skin, compared to when the hair is left to grow out naturally.
Because of this, it’s become routine for some women to shave or wax their skin. Many times this results in the complete removal of their pubic hair. However, it’s a good idea to understand the benefits of keeping your pubic hair, especially as it pertains to your health.
Your Pubic Hair Serves a Purpose
Here are some of the reason you might consider keeping your pubic hair:
-It provides protection against friction that can cause skin irritation in this sensitive area.
-It helps reduce the amount of sweat produced around the vagina.
-It helps block your vagina from the following bacteria and infections:
-Sexually transmitted infections.
-Urinary tract infections.
-It helps regulate body temperature.
-It is NOT more hygienic to remove pubic hair.

Men revealed what their true feelings are when it comes to women who shave and those who don't. Their answers might surprise you…
"(Some) women spend so long obsessing over minor details of their beauty, like their eyebrows, or 'are my boobs asymmetrical' or 'does my stomach look paunchy…' Ultimately, those minor details don't matter. If a guy is willing to get naked with you, and undress you, and likes you so much that he puts you on his bed and puts himself inside you…he's not gonna care that your nipples look kinda weird. The biggest arousal killer in bed is when she's insecure about her looks."
"It's your body and you are 100% in the right if you choose not to shave and I will never ask you to. However, I find it unattractive, especially if it's legs/armpits you're not shaving, and will not be staying with you. Is it shallow? Probably. But if I'm not attracted to you, I'm not going to be physical with you, and sex is an important part of a healthy relationship to me."
"Pubic hair doesn't matter. If I'm at the point where I'm looking down the barrel of your vagina, I don't care if it's unshaven or not."
"I mean, if I'm eating pussy and it's literally completely unshaven, it's pretty fucking gross. Pussy juice and saliva get trapped, it gets matted, you get hair in your mouth, it's pretty gross. My girlfriend doesn't keep hers perfectly shaven, but at least she trims."
"My girlfriend doesn't shave. I don't care. If she wants to shave because it makes her feel better for one reason or another more power to her. If she doesn't, it doesn't bother me."
"I have no real strong opinions on the matter. I will say it seems to bother my wife more when she hasn't. I'm out of my league with her anyway so she could roll up unshaved, teeth a week gone from brushed and I still would."
"Nothing sexy about looking like a plucked chicken. Ingrown hairs and inflamed flesh do not look good either. As for leg hair, smooth freshly shaven legs are sexy and just look good, but I certainly don't mind a few days stubble most of the time. In winter, why bother? "
