how gURLs deal with the hair down there

what to do down there?

Apparently, you aren’t the only one thinking about what you should do with the hair down there.  Researchers at Indiana University are, too. In fact, they just concluded a study that attempted to “assess pubic hair removal behavior among women in the United States and to examine the extent to which pubic hair removal methods are related to demographic, relational, and sexual characteristics, including female sexual function.” Awesome!

So, what’d they find? Well, there seems to not be any one dominant characteristic or way! While younger gURLs were more likely to remove all hair, most women do keep some of their pubes on.  Lead researcher DebbyHerbeneck, PhD, noted:

“Women’s total removal of their pubic hair was linked with younger age, sexual orientation (bisexual women were more likely to remove all of their pubic hair), having a sexual partner, having had cunnilingus in the past month and higher scores on female genital self-image and sexual function.”

What do you do with your pubic hair? Make sure you get all the facts on your hair down there before you pick up that razor or head in for a waxing!

    Hi, I’m 14 and I have no idea how to shave down there…I’m so embarrassed, some times I shave it at but other times I just shave the top, what should I do?!?!?!

      What ever you feel you’re the most comfortable with. Shaving it all off (BALD) will cut down any and all offensive odors from that area, it will be much easier to clean and maintain.

      You will have shave more frequently, possibly daily, but after shaving, every time, apply Baby Oil to the shaven area, rubbing the oil into the skin well, make sure that you use a NEW blade every time you shave there and apply the oil, the oil will facilitate the hair’s growth by allowing to slip past the skin surface.
