Question: Are you supposed to shave before you have sex? Will guys think you’re gross if you don’t?
Answer: Clearly this is a really pressing issue for a lot of you. In fact, 83 gURLs left comments on the: "Is it gross NOT to shave down there?" post.
There was a pretty big range in what they said. For example, Casandra wrote, "I had a boyfriend whom I was sexually active with who absolutely adored [my pubic hair]. He always insisted that it was natural and beautiful and never wanted me to get rid of it."
On the other hand, Britney said, "My boyfriend hates having girls with a bush, so I shave."
Everyone has personal preferences when it comes to pubic hair. But for most people, pubic hair is not the deciding factor on what makes someone attractive.
If you are dating a guy, you have a few options. You can ask him what he prefers. You can take a guess. Or you can just do what you want with your pubic hair and figure that if you really like each other the state of you crotch won’t be the most important aspect of your relationship.
