Women Who Shave 'Down There' May Regret it One Day

OMG 114

shavingMost women don't openly talk about the way they groom their lady bits in public. It's sort of like politics, if you know you aren't going to see eye to eye on the whole "to shave or not to shave" debate, then why bring it up -- right? Well, Cameron Diaz has no problem sharing her feelings on tidying things up "down below." Apparently, Cameron thinks women who go bald are bonkers.

I know you may think you'll be wearing the same style of shoes forever and the same style of jeans forever, but you won't. The idea that vaginas are preferable in a hairless state is a pretty recent phenomenon, and all fads change, people.

LOL. It's so comical to hear a woman talk so candidly about something that no one talks about. Granted every lady likes things cleaned up differently. However, if a woman wants to shave, wax, groom, whatever -- she should be able to do it in whatever way she wants ... without judgment.

Of course, there are many ways you can rid yourself of hair below the belt. There's laser, waxing, and regular 'ol shaving. And while shaving and waxing leave room for the indecisive, laser does not. Just like many other beauty-enhancing procedures (i.e. liposuction, implants, lifts, tucks) -- opting to go completely bare and laser off your pubic hair is something that's permanent. You know what that means? If you don't like the way your bits look in 20 years, you're screwed if you've taken the multi-treatment hair-ridding plunge. That reason alone should make any woman contemplate the high-price procedure, no matter how badly she wants to be bare right this very second.

At the end of the day, though, grooming and shaving down there is a personal choice. It's a choice that some women make because they like the way it feels or looks and others make because their partners like it. It shouldn't matter WHAT your friends think of your lady parts. What should matter is how you feel about it: bald or not.

Have you ever changed your grooming habits because of what's "popular"?

Ive tried the completely naked look. Not for me. I keep things trimmed up nicely

Kierr... KierraJanae29

Sometimes bald and other times I like to trim it low.

I love the completely misleading attention-grabber headline... :/

Frankly as far as hygeine goes I am all for hairless, I never did care for what it looked like much but I just feel so much cleaner doing it.

Alexa... AlexaAdams

I feel so much cleaner shaved.


Ditto Randomlady & AlexaAdams

I feel way cleaner shaved and my husband prefers it, he even shaves too! Hair "down there" is gross and unattractive. Just my opinion! :)

So am I the only one assuming Cameron Diaz has a massive 70's bush? Lol

It's not that new of a fad. I was Brazilian waxing 8-9 years ago.  I wish it was a fad that would go away though...

All natural, here.. But that's not to say I'm rocking a vintage crotch-fro.
