Is It Gross To Somewhat See The Pubic Hair Through The Skin

Did you shave your pubic hairs during pregnancy?

my co-workers like it when it's shorter. The reason is simple: bad smell. When you give birth, there is abviously a lot of liquid involved and it can stink a lot.

The length of it does not make their job harder at all. It's just being nice to them, that's all. no need to get the thing bald either. And don't worry about letting it grow either. It's your personal choice afterall.

You won't get judged in the streets, I promise ;-)

Is it normal to have pubic hair on the inside of your vagina lips?

So i decided that i wanted to get rid of my pubic hair because it just seems gross. But it looks like I have hair growing from the inside of my "mound" like near my clitoris, and labia. I just want to know if this is normal and how to get rid of it in a healthy way...? I'm 15 by the way, I know that I'm not having sex anytime soon so it doesn't matter, but I just want to feel fresh and normal.

Can you tweeze pubic hair?

Well, I have tried it too. In my opinion it takes way too long and isn't worth it in the end because it grows back only a two or three days after tweezing. It is almost the same as shaving and shaving is much more effective. It will grow back stubbly too, it will be stubbly then it will just grow to normal hairs again. If you pluck in one section too long it can get red and stay that way for a couple of days... BUT then it goes away. I am not 100% sure what ingrown hairs even are, but sometimes there are hairs that grow under the skin and don't ever come through. This is very painful to get rid of, because then you have to pull the skin up to get to the hair and then there are red marks there for QUITE awhile. I am not sure of scarring later in life, I suppose if you get an ingrown hair in the same spot a couple of times it will scar there. All in all I think it is somewhat effective, but takes too long and isn't really worth it. Stick to shaving or use NAIR I know nair works well and it is no shaving or plucking. Hope this will help!

When and why did women start shaving their body hair?

The answer will really depend on which culture you have in mind. Strict Muslims remove all body hair below the neck, both men and women. It's seen as an act of religious purity. The practice dates back at least to the 8th C.Portuguese explorers noted that the natives of what was to become Brazil were removing pubic hair as early as 1500 CE, according to Wikipedia.Grooming of pubic hair tends to go along with the size of bathing costumes being worn. The smaller the bottom, the more hair removed. Ultra-micro-kinis don't leave much to remain hirsute, so removing it all sort of makes sense. On nude beaches, however, one finds the full array of possibilities, likely because there's no clash with fashion.Shaving the underarms and legs didn't really start happening in the US until 1915-30 or so. Fashions looked better with smoothness and there was also a bit of a public panic over issues of hygiene that were solved via razor (and deodorants). Of course, this didn't really take hold in Europe until much later, and not completely. I do find it interesting that what was once the norm -- hairy female bodies -- has now changed to either a sexual kink or an object of derision/disgust.I think the fact that ideals of feminine beauty as expressed in statuary also had something to do with it. Few statues show women with body hair, yet they are put forward as the epitome of beauty. Some ethnic groups just do not have a whole lot of body hair. Hair seems to be less of an issue in those cultures, and so too its removal.

Do guys care if a girl has some pubic hair down there?

Here's how to shave your pubes: 1st pluck/wax some of them while they're long. Cut the hairs short. Apply shaving cream or conditioner to the pubic area. Then shave upwards in the opposite direction of the hairs with a 5-bladed razor. Be sure to shave hard to make it smooth. Afterwords to avoid getting beginners side effects wash the area off with acne cleanser, dishwasher soap, or rubbing alcohol. It only takes me 5 minutes to shave that & I shave about 3x a week. If done right you will be incredibly smooth like me. If you do experience beginners side effects don't panic! just put acne cream on the bumps, pop them if you can, keep up the shaving routine, & they should go away within a month. That's just a reaction cause your body isnt used to being hairless there. Even I itched & burned when I 1st started. Also try rubbing one of those skin moisturizing bar soaps on the area after you shave it. That'll make it really soft. Also when my facial razor gets dull I switch it to my body razor.

You can also get it removed permanently with electrolysis which is painful & costs $55 an hour. I've gotten 3 treatments on mine. Email me for more info about it.

Here's the benefits of hair removal: The absence of it is erotic, sensational, & it's easier to sexually relieve yourself. You'll feel sexier, younger, & cleaner. For girls it makes their periods easier to clean up because the hair traps in blood. It's cleaner because hair traps in odors & dirt & is 1 less thing to wash when you take a shower. One of the reasons I started shaving is because I would kill time twirling the hairs when I saw that area. Pubes can get caught in stuff like your zipper. & you won't leave long gross hairs on stuff like toilets.

I've got a blog posted on my profile about why there's nothing wrong with pubic hair removal (or body hair removal on either sex) that you & everybody else should read. & fyi you don't need to be sexually active to shave that area. I have friends that are complete prudes that are into body hair removal.

I hope I am helping people by answering these questions. If you don't wanna pick my answer as best I'd at least like to know if my advice has helped you.

I dont shave and Im a girl. Is that gross?

NOT gross at all! Sweetie I'm a guy and when I was your age I had several g/f's who didn't shave anything and I totally fell in love with armpit, pubic, and leg hair on girls and still do till this day. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with a girl becoming a young woman and having hair under her arms, on her legs, and between her legs. It is much more natural, certainly more mature looking, and makes a female look like an adult rather than a child. Something I will always prefer.

Yes you will face much peer pressure to shave. Be told it is more "socially acceptable", that it is more nicer looking and more hygienic and cleaner, blah, blah, blah. NONE of this is true. Women had hair in all those places way, way before shaving those areas became the "accepted" thing to do and had no problems with hygiene, attracting men, making love, and having children and neither will you.

Sadly most guys, especially the ones your age have been, like most girls your age, brainwashed into believing that no female should have hair below their eyebrows, so it may take you a while to find a guy who is both mature and enlightened enough to see shaving for women as the "scam" it is but believe me other guys who feel like I do DO exist and I hope you find one.

I think it is great that a young woman your age has both the intelligence and courage to reject what society considers "normal" and I hope you stay this way. Females your age who think as you do are VERY rare and few so please cherish that. Just remember, hair on your body is there for a natural AND healthy reason (s). If females were meant to remove it, it would not be there in the first place.

Good luck and never let ANYONE change your mind about not shaving.

As an added note of encouragement: I see you have a picture of Paul McCartney as your avatar. Did you know his first wife Linda NEVER shaved under her arms or legs and I'm sure not her pubic hair? I've heard that he absolutely loved it. She also had no problem with wearing tops and dresses that showed off her armpit and leg hair. Yes many narrow minded people and media put her down and made fun of her but she was smart and brave enough to ignore all that. Let her be an inspiration to you.


I think if you go to Google Images and type in something like "Linda McCartney hairy armpits" you should find a pic or two.

Why do women prefer men with hairless or hairy chests?

I find hairless chests to be extremely unattractive. It's kind of creepy to think of what most guys would have to do to get a hairless chest. Not only that, it just seems way too high-maintenance for me. I'm not interested in a guy that is going to spend more money on waxing than me. No, thank you. Otherwise, I just find hairy chests for attractive. I think it's sexy and really masculine. Especially guys with black hair. Maybe I'm weird, but when I'm laying next to a guy with my hand on his chest, I like to play with the hair there. But that's just me.

Do men find it disgusting if women have body hair?

Porn.This was never an issue just a few years back as every woman you'd see naked in any pornographic magazine would have pubic hair. No one blinked an eyelid if a woman had a full bush and was rocking it out there loud and proud.Nowadays, every woman you see in Pornograpy has no pubic hair or at the very most, a landing strip.Yet, when you look at guys, often they will have all their pubic hair, and, although many men do trim and take care of themselves, many men do not and will happily expect you to put a hairy penis in your mouth with an excess of long pubic hair. Yet you are expected to be as bald as the day you were born.Our airbrushed social media society teach us that male hairy chests, underarms and legs are sexy, but women's natural body hair is disgusting and something to be ashamed of. This then gets ingrained in our psyche and we start to believe it.I do too!I dislike hairy legs, arm pits and prefer a trimmed or waxed vagina (landing strips make me feel physically sick. Personal preference.). I wish I didn't feel like this, but it's been so hammered down to me that this is what women should look like, that I've started to believe it too.I am all for empowering women to wear their body hair however they see fit. It's just not something I plan to grow out for myself.However, I wish more guys would stop pressuring women to shave when they can't be arsed to take care of their own pubic region. I've had guys tell me they wouldn't shave their pubic hair as it ‘itches’ and makes them look like a little boy…see the irony here?It's a two-way street, guys!But to those who love their women and respect their choice to wear their own body hair however they see fit, much love from femalekind)

I always have ingrown hairs all over my legs and it looks like red bumps .how do i get rid of them?please help?

An ingrown hair happens when the sharp tip of the hair curls back or grows sideways into the skin. It is a benign condition, which usually appears as a small tan or sometimes pink bump under the skin.
Hair that is cut short and close to the skin creates a sharp tip that can more easily pierce the skin to cause an ingrown hair. Improper shaving techniques are the major cause of ingrown hairs. Other hair-removal methods, including waxing, as well as common friction from tight clothing, may worsen the situation. Although an ingrown hair is primarily caused by improper or aggressive hair removal, it sometimes occurs naturally as too much dead skin debris blocks the hair follicle opening, causing the hair to grow sideways.
Although no cure exists, it is possible to decrease the occurrence of ingrown hairs. The easiest way to do this is through proper hair and skin hygiene.
Hydrate and soften both the skin and the hair before shaving. This can result in a duller, rounded tip to the hair, which decreases the likelihood for hairs to reenter the skin.
•Use a moistened washcloth, a wet sponge, or a soft-bristled toothbrush with a mild soap to wash the beard or hair for several minutes via a circular motion to help dislodge stubborn tips.
•Some natural mild exfoliators, such as salt and sugar, can be applied to treat the redness or irritation that comes with the ingrown hair.
•Do not shave against the direction or grain of the hair growth.
•Avoid shaving too closely to the skin. Pressing the razor too close to the skin or pulling the skin taut can result in too close of a shave.
•Leave very short 1-2 mm stubble with shaving to help reduce the tendency of shaving too closely. These shaving techniques can avoid creating a sharp tip when shaving and prevent hair from reentering the skin by leaving slightly longer stubble.
•Another way to prevent ingrown hairs is by avoiding shaving and allowing hair to grow naturally.
•Carefully use a sterile needle and alcohol wipe to dislodge stubborn ingrown hairs or use tweezers to gently tease the hair out of the skin. However, this is usually not recommended in that these procedures may be too aggressive and cause further damage to the skin.
