Hey, I am just really confused by the children who have been responding to this topic. First off, it shows how immature you are when you say that hair is gross. Second, you should NOT even be able to give an opinion because you are too young. And lastly, if you notice, MEN prefer women who are natural. Adolescents seem to believe pubic hair is gross.

I am 19 and I say that it is attractive if a woman is natural.

hi am ashley and i am 18 and i think tht you will be fine just if he says anything to you , you should just tell him that if you dont like me for who i am then i think that we cant be together and u have pubic hair to and i will find someone for myself better than you. Or if you do not want to do that then you should just shave your pubic hair all you need is a warm moist wash cloth, a shaver, a towel, and some shaving cream you can put the towel down and sit on it and then gently put the wash cloth on your pubic hair and then keep it on for at least 2 mins. or more. and then take it off and put on the shaving cream on and then use the shaver and just gently brush it on your vagina and then put the wash cloth back on and wipe off your pubic hair and dont worry i promise that it will grow baxk but it will be very itchy thank you for taking your time and reading this - ashley

I'm a female and I personally think women should have hair down there. Whether it's a bush or trimmed and neat is totally her decision.

I think the problem is that men (or..boys) these days are comparing us women to the (girls) they see online and in porn. It's completely unnatural and childish to be totally bare down there. If I was a guy I would feel like i'm with a 10 year old.

Also, if your notice, generally the guys who prefer girls totally shaved women are also the same guys who think curvy women with real bodies are "fat". The guys who also want the pre-teen bodies.

I think men need to appreciate women for what women actually are, and to stop comparing us to this childish 12-year old body image the media, internet & porn is trying to portray as "women".

Hi im 15.. and iv been really self concious about my pubic hair. i had a boyfriend who tried to put his hands down my pants and i had shaven adn everything but he felt a little and broke up with me. so ever since then iv been so self concious

i shave the lips innter thys all that jazz

but i honestly love having that feeling of hair on the front

i feel like a woman, i keep it shaped kind of like a surfbord and not thick, but shaving it just reminds me of when i was a little girl, and im not a little girl

this has really helped me a lot :) im glad there are men out there that likes it. i realize that if a guy doesnt like it, hes either watched too much porn, or is just used to the "childish feeling"

i wouldnt want to shave it all off

I am 43, and a male. I do get turned off by too much hair. I like a little on top. For those who say go all natural and you who cares about your man or what he likes. Than why not stop shaving all together? Just have hairy legs, arm pits, and thighs. You say well thats not publicly acceptable. and that pubic hair is a private individual matter.

As a MAN speaking here

i prefer pubic hair on a woman

its not natural looking for a fully grown woman (as well as on a man) not to have pubic hair, makes them look like a child down there if they take it all off (sorry but i aint into that).

My advice to the women and girls who are self concious about their pubic hair, keep it, your an adult now, with an adults body, and the pubes are there to say your an adult and not a child, so be proud of it, and dont let anyone tell you what you should be doing with your body.

So forget these so called people that call themselves guys/men that think pubes are disgusting, because obviously they havent mentally matured yet to relise that pubic hair is part of being an adult.

Hi. I'm 15 years old and I am very very self conscious about my appearance in that area.. I do what Is comforatble for me: I shave the lips and top area but leave some in between... Trimmed, of course. And u always shave by my thighs. I personally don't like the way hair feels down there... And during a period, it's messier with hair (if you know what I mean). I say do what is more comfortable to you. If your guy really loves you, he won't care.. As long as you're in his arms.. My third time having intercourse was actually rather recent.. It was with my fiance. He had never seen me there before and I had never told him anything about it and when we made love, it was the best feeling ever. Not once has he mentioned what I do or don't have as being disgusting or a turn off. In fact he's always talking about how beautiful my body is and he tells me that he wants to have sex again.. He loves me and doesn't really care about what I look like, he's seen me at some of my worst moments...

So in a quick sentence: do what you feel is comfortable, and if he finds it a turn off, it's not supposed to happen. Hope I helped!

"How do the MEN feel about this topic?"

Well, speaking as a 100% man here, my preference would be for a woman to keep it natural. I love the tactile sensation of hair, the way it's just a totally unique part of a woman's body, and...well, it just looks sexy as hell!

I can't for the life of me understand how some people react with a notion that hair is "gross," or "disgusting..." WTF??

I mean... it's the way an adult body looks.

I am just not attracted to the bald or landing-strip look.

It kind of creeps me out to be honest.

Of course it's ultimately a personal decision, left up to each individual, but in reply to the question of "how do the men out there feel?" I've gotta say I prefer the pubes!

I alternate between full bush and keeping it full at the front and waxing underneath. I always shave or wax any hair that grows on the thigh area though.

My boyfriend actually finds pubic hair a turn on, as did my ex. They are in their thirties (I'm in my twenties) but once I was seeing a younger guy and when I told him I'd shaved he told me he found the shaved look a complete turn-off. I've dated men who liked trimmed, but never one who wanted shaven.

Personally I like my bush, and these days I wouldn't shave it off for anyone. It makes me feel more feminine :-)

Hi, I've been wondering the same things as you. I haven't had sex yet, I do have a boyfriend though...I'm just really, really happy to see that it's not as huge a deal as I thought it was.

Dear 16 year old,

I wouldn't think you are dirty at all by having pubic hair. It is just part of being a healthy developing girl, however, you would be more attractive "down there" if the hair was neatly trimmed instead of growing wild. This is much like a man's facial hair or grass in someone's lawn can look good if neatly trimmed and bad if it is allowed to grow with no maintenance.

I'm 27. I really appreciate all the positive posts men have about pubic hair. I have recently taken a liking to watching porn, but it started to make me really insecure about my hair. I'm thinking "geez, men must really be turned on by a waxed pussy". Personally, I want to look and feel like a woman, so I keep my hair, but of course it matters what men think. Because, if you think men are turned off by your hair, you feel quite insecure. It's REALLY nice to hear that men actually like the things that women are born with, like hair and natural boobs. So, why do we see so much artificiality everywhere? Anyways, thanks again.

A female reader, anonymous, writes (15 November 2009):

I'm quite lucky in that my pubic hair is quite sparse (doesn't grow on my thigh, barely covers my pubic bone and lips) and soft anyway so i vary between closely trimming it and shaving it completely. As the hair is so soft, I don't get any bumps on the flesh beneath so when I shave the skin is as smooth as that on my stomach.

The first time I had hair removed from my pubic area it was a lover who trimmed it for me and the experience was quite erotic. Since then, I prefer to be hair-free in that area or at least trimmed very short. The feeling of any 'bush' is kind of a turn-off for me personally - I don't like how it feels day-to-day, outside of sex.

I've never been with anyone who said outright they didn't like it. In fact, with guys, I felt that it was the norm to be like that, expected. But the main point is that I do it for myself.

I am bisexual and pubic hair on women grosses me out and oral sex is a complete no. But conversely, I do like men to retain theirs, though a neat trim is nice.

A female reader, anonymous, writes (14 November 2009):

Hey there,

I have always been slightly complexed with the hair down there. I never shave it all the way, but I believe that keeping it a bit trimmed is good. Why am I complexed? Because I'm afraid some guys "expect" girls to be like that. But the truth is, from experience, it really depends on the guy. I am rarely attracted to the superficial "player" type that expects the girl to be perfect, anytime, anywhere. That's not possible!

The most important thing in a relation is that the guy respects you no matter what. One of my friends' was asked by her boyfriend to shave it all and I was personnally disgusted (she didn't even have a sort "big bush", she just was trimmed and takes good care of her general appearance). Men shouldn't have to ask their girlfriends to do such things, especially since most men don't shave at all.

My arguments for keeping a little hair down there:

1. Nature decided for hair to grow there and has it's reasons (warmth, protection against bacteria...)

2. Bacteria! I study microbiology and it seems to me, it's better to have the least of problems down there: if you develope an ingrown hair from shaving too much, that could lead to an infection (bump + puss eventually = discomfort + not cool). If you shave, their are risks that the blade is dirty and cutting yourself slightly could possibly be bad. Never share blades with other people also, not even family members.

3. More you shave, more it's prickly, darker and grows back quicker. Being a brunette, it's no fun in the summer walking around the pool in a bathing suit when you have dark spots of short hair showing (better wax on the sides of the bikini!). Plus, if a guy goes and plays down there, he might expect you to be a little bit more soft. Keeping it trimmed moderately can give a soft touch.

4. Pubic hair is a sign of puberty, that women are physically mature and are capable of having children. I personnaly don't want to get guys excited for looking as smooth as a pre-teen down there! That's creepy.

5. Even when you showing it, you're not "really" showing it...!

Hopefully, women will feel more comfortable in the future, despite what is shown on TV and on the Internet. It's great knowing that a guys loves you for what you look like, but it's even better that he loves you for who you are!

hi,

I'm 17 and personally i do what PLEASES me with my body parts. Im not gonna have a jungle down there because I dont like it. However, im also not gonna shave my entire "downstairs" because i find that to be ugly as well.

Plus, when it starts to grow out it gets really rough. And i feel like i might cut a dude with those prickles. Hahaha

Generally i dont shave the top of my "downstairs" i keep it trimmed pretty short. Or a landing strip if i wanna change it up a bit. but i do shave my lips just because i find that to be quite irritating. Do what YOU are happy with.

Who cares if a specific dude doesnt like pubic hair. men should be more understanding because the men ive been with usually dont shave their parts all the way. They usually keep it trimmed. You dont see us women freaking out.

I'd have to say that I agree with most of the post here. There are some posts here that are just idiotic. For example,

"I am 67 yrs old. I have been fully shaved since 1983. Its the best thing i have ever done. I shave every morn in the shower. I feel so much better smooth.......its CLEANER. AND it makes me feel VERY sexy. You younger ladies ....if you want some tips on shaving email me. Kathy "

First off, I don't see how it is "CLEANER". By running a sharp piece of metal over your skin, you're literally opening yourself up to infection, from cuts and in-grown hair. Ask any man you know how much he likes shaving his face.

Second, body hair isn't new to humanity; hominid species have been living with body hair for the last 4 million years. More specifically, Homo Sapiens Sapiens (that's our species) have been living with it ever since we evolved. It's only in the last 70 or so years that human body hair (and only female in particular, mind you) has become "un-clean".

So, PROTECT your health, don't be a mindless slave to capitalism like Kathy, and listen to the post just above this one; don't worry about it.

I am 28 and I always thought a trim look "down there" is ideal. I never liked the shaved look because it makes me think of a pre-pubescent teen. Honestly I see it as also being practical. Guys if you want to have your girl shave down there then do it yourself. Trust me I dated a girl that demanded I do that and it sucked (thankfully I only did it a couple of times)! You think you guys get razor burn on the chin? Try shaving down there! I always prefer a bush, and even if I didn't I could never do that to a woman.

Just for the record I do think that a woman needs to shave the legs, pits, and arms if necessary so I am not some hippy wierdo.

Do whatever you want, if your boyfriend/fiancée etc. makes a big deal out of pubic hair, then he's not worth it. Most guys prefer a trim, but most definatley not bare because it soon becomes prickly and itchy and very unpleasant. Personally I trim and my boyfriend doesn't mind, especially after 4 years.

although everyone has commented and says "ask your partner" i feel like this is way too awkward of a conversation (i AM very close with him, i just hate/fear super awkward conversations- like this)

You know, the preference for pubic hair or no pubic hair changes over time. At this point, I think it is at "no" but trending toward "some." Current issues of Playboy magazine should serve as a barometer for pubic hair fashion. That should show you what the classy girls are doing at the moment.

However, if you allow a guy to see what you've done with that area, he should be happy just being intimate with you. If he reacts negatively to any part of your body, he doesn't deserve it.

hijacked_dignity agony auntI personally shave down there. Everything. It just feels more tolerable and...well...clean to me. It's basically the same reason as to why I shave my legs or other areas of the body.

My boyfriend stated that he doesn't care if I'm shaved or not, buuuut...I think deep down he likes shaved based on his physical reactions to either or. I think guys saying the like it shaved is a touchy subject, because this can have a connection to girls who prepubescent, which is majorly taboo. And heck, it kind of creeps me out when I think about it like that. But hey, when he saw completely shaved, he returned the favor and shaved too, which made things a lot easier for me when it was my turn to give oral. ;)

Just be safe. Know the consequences of sex before doing it, and do what you feel comfortable with.

As for hair, keep it tidy, but you don't have to shave it all off. He should love you anyway. I love my girlfriend's hair. Also, for girls that say guys should shave, please stop.

A reader, anonymous, writes (14 September 2009):

I myself had been wondering this same exact thing for MANY months now. My now ex-boyfriend made it seem like having any pubic hair was just revolting and that ALL women shaved it off. Now to me it just sounded stupid because, well, it ITCHES so badly . Basically though what I'm finding with all of these answers is that most guys actually ARE turned on with girls that don't shave their pubic hair. Trim it sure, you want to be clean cut, just like a guy should be with their beard (which raises another point I'll explain in a second). But DON'T be ashamed of yourself because you don't shave. In the long run, it's less to stress about and totally natural and healthy! And you know, if you date a guy with a beard or any form of facial hair and he decides that he can't handle giving you oral with pubic hair in the way, just tell him that you can't make out with him either. Same thing sort of, just different ends of the pole ;)

If he's really got a problem with it, tell HIM to shave it all of, wait a day, and see how many steps it takes before he's got an ubearably itchy rash ;D

In the end, it really shouldn't matter to him whether or not you shave down there. He should love and accept you for YOU, and that should be the only reason why he's there in the first place. Best of luck to you and your boyfriend, I hope your relationship has many smiles :)

However, you really don't need to worry before you have sexual experience. Noone will think you're strange no matter how much hair you have down there (unless he's very religious or something.)

That said, you may want to consider professional waxing. It hurts like a bitch (mostly the first time), but it only needs to be done once every six weeks.

A male reader, anonymous, writes (24 July 2009):

main reason that shaving is so popular these days is a result of a fad that the porn industry started in the 80s, designed to be more explicit as you can see a woman's parts more explicitly..... unfortunately porn is how most young men learn about sex. Ditto when it comes to plastic surgery, just look how common breast implants are these days..

Like most teenage guys I really did not care if the girl had a full bush or was shaved. But after a few relationships, a shaven area became really unappealing & boring. The ensuing rash, prickles and just the look of it can be a real turn off.

It doesn't even compare to a lovely & mysterious thick curly thatch.

I say either leave it natural or slightly trimmed until you have a partner and see what preferences you share. If he's completely hell bent on shaved, chances are he learnt it from porn.

ALSO tbh she isn't too young most teens have had sex by they time they are 14 - 15 anyway,what i'm trying to say is things change fast you just have to go with it. another thing when i was in primary school everyone talked about it then so too young NO so egnor the comments about too young, thats personal.

Hey girl I'm 18 and I've dealt with this question myself. I had a pretty big bush and I found that it made it difficult to keep myself clean and sweet-smelling, and I also occasionally had hairs peeking out of my thongs and bikini bottoms. I tried shaving one day, and it was a job! I had to trim and then shave, and it took a long time to fully remove all my thick, curly hair. The next day, it felt great! smooth and soft and clean, I loved it! The next day I noticed it was extremely itchy, and I investigated to discover that the entire shaved area was covered with red bumps, and i was horrified. I suffered through it until it partially grew back, and enjoyed having short hair for a time. I found trimming an area which is not exactly smooth very difficult, and I soon had my old bush back with the same problems. I asked my friend about it, and she said that when she first shaved, it was very uncomfortable, but if you keep shaving and don't scratch, it soon becomes comfortable. I decided to give it another shot, and lived through an itchy week. I've been shaved ever since, and I have no problems. I generally shave every day, but it's totally fine if I skip a day or two, say if I'm camping or something, there still isn't any problems. I love being clean, and I always smell good down below. I`m a virgin, so I don`t know whether or not my future spouse will like it, but I intend to save sex for marriage and to ask my fiancee what his preference is before thewedding night. For my own personal preference, I`ve had all lengths of pubic hair, and I like clean shaven the best. Just keep at it, and you`ll find that all discomfort goes away and you`re left with smooth comfort. Take it from a sister who was born with a big bush, getting rid of it is the msot comfortable and cleanest solution.

A quote from one anonymous male;

"All the completely shaved stuff that is so in, seems to me, to be an almost paedophilic fetish".

Most men in general, it seems - do prefer their women to be as natural as nature intended them to be.

Shaving, waxing or trimming your pubic hair is becoming more of a norm, it follows fashion. More girls are into wearing thongs and low-rise bikinis.

Again, it's a clear case of girls wanting to match with the 'woman of today' label.

Some girls go to great lengths, even inflicting pain on ourselves, to appeal to others.

Perhaps a little trim and a 'tidy up'.

But whether you choose to tend to a manicured lawn or wild English garden is your choice - and nobody else's.

Guys will not think you're dirty providing you maintain regular hygiene down there.

The choice is yours.

I would say that having some above (landing strip?) looks better than none at all or all over. I really think that the preferences would vary widely among guys and that different setups would seem more or less 'matching' :P on different ladies, in my opinion.

i know exactly what you mean. i am your age and i feel soo embarrased. but really it is soooo uncomfterble to shave, and waxing hurts like a mother. i dont think it should matter as much.

there is a steriotype that guys like a girl better when she is shaved. but that could be just as false as people thinking that it is a turn off when it is not shaved. if you are cool with it then shave it wax it do what ever. but if you dont want to it shouldnt matter cuz we are all human and that is just natural.

but although pubes are natural dont got wild durning the bathing suit season, at least trim it up a little.

but if you want my personal prefference, i like it better with out the pubes. but if you dont like the pain of waxing or shaving then i sugest that you use nair it works well.

i hope i helped!

This is like asking "Do guys like blue eyes?" or "Do guys like dark hair?". It is a fashion thing that varies from time to time, culture to culture, and guy to guy.

I personally like a fairly natural bush down there. A lot of shaved genitals make me think of plucked chickens, and definitely do NOT like the suggestion that I might be coupling with a 13-year old who hasn't grown pubic hair yet!

id just trim it. you can do whatever you want, but having it trimmmed back looks the best and feels better, ive never had it shaved all the way or got a brazilian, it just seems like to much work, and i think i look better with it trimmed.

it all really depends on how much pubic hair there is and were it is, if it is all around a womans vigina it can be a bit of a turn off but if it is above the vigina its fine although males do tend to prefer shaven especially if they are giving oral sex to the girl.

My gosh what horrible advice that the anynomous male has given!

12 and 13 year olds ARE too young to have sex. For one thing, they aren't finished with growing and developing! Saying that age shouldn't matter and be ignored is just wrong wrong wrong.

It's horrible, and disturbing. The rate of mothers the age of 12 years old is rising. Kids that age are too young to understand.

Just do it when YOU FEEL READY and never ever feel pressured. Let yourself grow up first and even experiment with other things (Like masterbation) prior to thinking of any serious ways, please! It's the healthiest one can ever do for themselves.

Besides, its much more fullfling when you know you are with someone you love.

i am a woman and i had this same question years ago. honestly, i think men and women should appreciate each other for their natural state of beauty. in all honesty, i find that more younger boys (15-18) do prefer for a girl to be shaved, compared to an adult man who doesn't usually care. and like many people have said, it is all up to you. there are many inconviences about shaving though, such as how often shaving is needed, and how the hair grows back (texture) i would honestly not recommend it,

hope this helped in some form...

Many guys like a shaved area, but I personally like a totally unshaved pubic area on a girl. Hairier the better by me. Honestly, I'd say leave it if you really don't mind the hair, and if you date a guy, that's the time to discuss it with him.

It used to be the novelty was a shaved pubic area - now an UNSHAVED one is a novelty. My, how times change!

I don't think you are too young to worry about this.When i was 16 i felt the same and was very conscious about my down below area. To be honest most men do like it shaved or trimmed, even some men trim their own area these days. Do what you feel comfortable with ok.

Yeah it all depends, I mean, to most guys I know, it really doesn't matter. Though for oral sex it might be nice to shave or trim a bit. And if you want, ask him to do the same for you with his pubic hair. Or shave each other. Feels better that way too ;)

wildturkey agony auntIts a shame you had to even ask. its not a turn of at all. Kinda wrong to think that we think we have to look like children to be attractive to the opposite sex. there are too manny young girls worried about the apperance of there parts even getting cosmetic surgery. to me this is a media problem and nothing to do with what the males want. On the other side giving oral sex can be more enjoyable with clipped hair..

A male reader, anonymous, writes (13 June 2007):

As far as hair goes, to look at media today you'd think that fully mature women either have no pubic hair or very very little. This can cause perception issues. In any case, the way to go is with whatever you are comfortable. I don't think that pubic hair is a turn-OFF to (some)men so much as shaved girl-parts are a turn-ON. I highly doubt that your guy will be turned off. In the teen years, most boys are happy to have that particular bit of female anatomy in front of them, regardless of how it looks! If you aren't comfortable shaving/trimming and your guy IS really grossed out by your body in its natural state, I suggest that the problem lies with the guy and not your short and curlies.

And as far as the people here saying "it shouldn't matter because you're too young" and so forth are concerned, ignore them. The decision to have sex is a very personal one and no one can say what age is "right". Some people are mature enough to engage in sexual relationships as young as twelve or thirteen, while (much more frequently) there are eighteen and twenty year olds who really should grow up a little more first. So don't let other people's ideas of what's "appropriate" interfere with such a personal decision. What's right for them may or may not be what's right for you.

As a guy I prefer the person I'm with to be a woman and shaving that area will only make a female seem to be prepubescent girl. Of course at you age it's too early to be showing off that area to a guy. So don't worry about it. Take care.

Pubic hair is natural and normal. How clean you are is not determined by whether or not you have pubic hair. Some guys prefer shaved or well-trimmed pubes, but I can't speak for how boys your own age may feel. At your age, I would honestly hope that the boys you are interested in would prefer for you to look more like a woman and less like a pre-pubescent girl.
