While some women never miss an appointment with their beautician to do Brazilian wax or full depilation, others prefer to leave the natural fleece! Over time, pubic hair have gain a very bad reputation, fueled by myths and rumors, to the point that it became difficult to distinguish what is right from what is wrong! To end this confusion, we will now review 5 biggest myths about pubic hair.
We are in the bikini season, and hair removal sessions are certainly more numerous! Pubic hair that appear during puberty, are for many women and men unattractive or unclean. Now these small shadows are soldiers that play an important role in protection of the sensitive area.
Indeed, pubic hairs reduce friction, prevent irritation, following the sexual intercourse and protect the vulva infections acting as a barrier. Thus a perfectly shaved pubis is a perfectly exposed pubic and much more susceptible to infections. Not to mention, that the operation (hair removal) in itself can cause irritation and promote the occurrence of ingrown hairs.
Today, the trend is hairless pubis; everyone is in search of smooth pubis. But the followers of natural way still remain strong, although pubic hair is much criticized, often wrongly.
Let us review the 5 myths about pubic hair:
1 – Will they grow forever?
Pubic hair is renewed regularly. After the growth phase, hair growth will stop when it reaches a certain length (usually between 4 and 9 feet). Following this, the hair will fall and another growth phase begins.
Note, however, that pubic hair tend to decline with age, especially around the time of menopause.
2 – Can a tuft be attractive?
Many women choose to tweeze the bikini as a response to images in the media and social pressures on women, for they are always presentable as mostly hairless. Today, a well-shaved pubis is synonymous for seduction and a symbol of sex appeal, but is that really what all men think? The opinions vary; some men find that a shaved pubic is much more sexy, while others find it less mature and less natural. However, with or without hair, the choice largely depends on the preferences of the person.
If you are a fan of waxing, so here is the information that could make you change your habit!
Genital secretions contain pheromones. It is odorless substances having the ability to stir sexual desire. Knowing that pubic hair can retain these secretions, so it is reasonable that pheromones will be kept in the hair!
3 – Does my hair and pubic hair should have the same color?
Many people believe that hair color is an excellent representation of the color of their pubic hair. Wrong! Your hair and pubic hair do not necessarily have the same color or the same thickness.
4 – Does the pubic hair bother during sex?
Again, this depends on individual preferences. It is true that the pubic hairs protect the vulva against friction and shock, but they diminish in any way the perceived stimulation in women during sex.
However, some women prefer waxing because they feel more stimulation and pressure, when the surface is smoother.
5 – Does my pubic hair protect me against sexually transmitted diseases?
Contrary to popular belief, who falsely accuses pubic hair being messy and responsible for the accumulation of bacteria, pubic hair has a much nobler role: it help prevent sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). According to various scientific studies, pubic waxing, increases the risk of spread of STDs.
Obviously, pubic hair alone can’t do full protection, therefore the condom use is essential!
