Ask Dad: To Bikini Wax or Not -- What Do Men Really Think About Pubic Hair?

18

Ask Dad returns! Well, sort of. Don’t worry, I’ve got all the qualifications they say I need: I can make a baby and a sentence. Now make with the questions!

Do men find women with Brazilian bikini waxes more attractive? Does the "hair down there" really gross men out?

Ah, I would have to wade into this thicket the first time out. Most men really don’t care, and I’d have serious questions about a guy who found a normal sprig of adult womanhood somehow disgusting.

But most of us have had moments when we gasped at what looked like a front yard on the Bayou, and immediately started feeling future hairs tickling our throats.

The sad truth is most men have grown up surrounded by porn and almost-porn, where pubes are as rare as fat. (There are fetish videos for both, of course.) They just expect that the Hairy Fairy visits women in the night, taking pubes and leaving shiny nickels under the panties.

I was stunned at how widespread waxing had become when I was single again in my mid-30s. I took to running around and asking everyone, “Where the hell has all the pubic hair gone?” I learned even ladies with a healthy dose of hippie in them had gone Brazilian.

If going under the candle still sounds horrifying, women determined to spare themselves some pain and keep their hedges intact could be rewarded. It’s fashion like anything else, and everything comes back. Sasha Grey, the porn-and-mainstream actress who’s been dubbed the Tiger Woods of sex (before Tiger Woods became the Tiger Woods of sex), says she’s proud of her short-and-curlies. She proudly showed them off in a recent ep of HBO’s Entourage.

Extreme waxing does have one big perk -- it gives clueless men a better shot at finding everything without having to hunt through the heather. Actually, that might be a good guideline. Simply wax the places you’d like him to go, especially the spots you’d like him to stay. You can shave what’s left into an arrow pointing the way. For the truly hopeless.

gramminy above is SO WRONG.. LOOK, IT'S A MAN'S WORLD & MOST MEN WANT YOU NATURAL JUST LIKE WE PREFER NATURAL BREASTS.. DON'T EVEN TRIM IT.. IT'S NOT GROTESQUE BUT RATHER AROUSING WHEN IT ESCAPES THE LEG HOLE OF YOUR PANTIES & BATHING SUITS.. JUSY LEAVE IT TO GROW NATURALLY.. HERE'S THE GUIDELINE ; MEN WHO ARE BOTHERED BY HAIR IN THEIR NOSTRILS OR MOUTH OBVIOUSLY AREN'T MATURE ENOUGH TO BE THERE.. FURTHER, YOU'LL SAVE MONEY & TIME BY LEAVING YOUR VULVA & PUBIS ALONE WITH THEIR HAIR.. 1 MORE.. IT'S MORE HEALTHY TO HAVE HAIR ON YOUR VULVA ; ASK ANY NURSE..

Sorry. I like it shaven. Never been a fan of "The Bush". I've gotten "frisky" with a woman, played around and found out she didn't keep hers trim. I suddenly got tired, hung around a few minutes and just left. Never went back. If it's not trimmed, I won't even contemplate going anywhere near it. Shaven is best. Only place I like hair on a woman (blond peach fuzz is okay on the body, arms, etc) is on her head and eyebrows.

My lover was with this horrible woman for years who as a part of her cult "religion" grew her pubic hair long and grey. He said it looked like "spanish moss!" And she didn't bathe daily so imagine what a pungent situation it was!

How about long enough to look like SPANISH MOSS!? Caliente! That'll keep your man at home.

Trim it no one wants to floss when having dinner

To the people saying it's "healthy to have hair" is full of pure crap. I kept getting yeast infections and couldn't figure out why, and as soon as I started shaving, they were gone. Plus my husband loves it shaved or trimmed. I won't wax though, did that once, never again.

I trim with clippers (never a blade - OUCH) because  I prefer it.  Not so much because of my husband's opinion.  I think to each his own.
