Should You Shave Your Pubic Hair?
2 14 4570


Some people shave their public hair, some people trim it, and some people go Duck Dynasty with it, but what's the right thing to do? Should you shave it, or let it grow like it would naturally do?

Research suggests that there may be more negative effects to shaving your public hair than letting it accumulate and grow. Through our evolution, we've lost most of our body hair, but our pubic hair, along with other regions of our bodies that grow hair, have remained.

It may be related to mating, and could have something to do with our bodies trying to alert others of our readiness to mate and to help direct pheromones toward the opposite sex.

By shaving it off, you're going to experience more growing irritations, which isn't so pleasant in itself, but other things that can occur from shaving include open cuts, which leave you prone to infection or more vulnerable to STD transmission. Removing pubic hair is also attributed to some of America's most frequent hospital visits related to genital injuries, because sometimes, we're simply not careful enough.

The general consensus is, it's totally up to you on whether you feel like shaving your public regions, but there's no harm in letting nature take its course.
