Pubes – Yay or Nay?

by Beth Divine 12 Feb 2019

The question of whether to bare all or not is a long running battle of the sexes, quite literally! Men (and yes, this is a generalisation and it is not absolutely true of all straight men) tend to prefer their playground uncluttered. Which, in the case of an oral-heavy relationship, seems to be fair enough: who wants pubes between their teeth when they are trying to get down to business? That’s right, no one does.

On the other side of the argument you have the feminists, the naturalists, and the paedo-watch parade.

Being told, asked or forced to change anything about their body, argue the feminists, is problematic, hearkening back to the bad days of the patriarchy when a non-compliant daughter, wife, sister or other female dependent was legally considered to be the property of the man in her life. This legal status saw women being stripped of their dowries or inheritances, locked up in asylums, essentially imprisoned in their homes or even killed in order to exert control over them. The law, thank goodness, has come a long way from those barbarous times, but men, say feminists, still want to control and police women: the way they think, the way they dress, and even the way they groom themselves. The fact that some women do not like the way body hair looks or feels is often ignored, or shouted down as being a hangover from these patriarchal views… And yes, the irony that they are ignoring the wants of the individual woman in these cases, just like the system they are trying to battle, is often lost from view…

Naturalists (not quite the right term, but it will do for the purposes) maintain that body hair is there for a reason, and should be left alone. While this was probably more true in long-gone times, when we tended to live in caves or temporary camps, a bit of body hair probably did serve a purpose, these days a shaven armpit is not going to put anyone at risk of catching a cold. However, pubic hair has been found to be a valuable defence when left to flourish on the female body. Firstly, it is a layer between the delicate internal genitals and the outside world, effectively preventing anything from being able to make its way inside the body. It also has a cushioning effect, which can be useful during vigorous sex, stopping bruises from forming.

The final group believe that those who want their partners to be completely devoid of body hair must have some kind of perversion in which they are attracted to the very young – pre-pubescent, and therefore pre-sexual. They may have a point, but it must be noted that the characteristics of a sexually mature person depend on many factors, of which pubic hair is just one

So: to shave or not to shave (or wax, epilate, or otherwise depilate)? As often with these subjective areas – it is entirely up to you and your partner. However, do bear in mind that if you do remove your pubic hair, you should keep an eye on your parts and ensure that they suffer no ill effects from the process.
