Honestly, its your own choice wether or not to shave. Some men find it attractive, some don't. But its not gross, or un-hygenical if you don't shave, because women shower, don't they? But, just try what you would feel comfortable with. If you don't feel right shaving, then just try grooming it, or trimming it around the bikini line. Or just go o' natural.

I like to shave it off myself, as part of foreplay , esp if it's the girl's first time..... :)

Sometimes it can be a stretch to postpone entering for as long as it takes to shave it off but that's part of the fun / excitement ...... When I do get inside the sensation is phenomenal...... and it definitely is hornier to rub my penis \ testicles against a freshly shaved pubic area ......

I love the natural look. Shaving all your pubic just doesn't look right to me. So unsexy. Besides that, i am a man so all i shave is my face. That is time consuming enough every morning. How could anyone have the time to shave their legs, armpits, and all their pubic and still have time in their day to be a normal person?

I absolutely LOVE pubic hair! Some of the most beautiful genitals I have ever seen have been graced with gorgeous wavy full bushes! It's fun to play with, lovely to caress, feels great on your skin, and is beautiful to look at and admire. Let it grow, ladies, there are lots of us who adore your natural feminine gardens and would love nothing better than to get lost in your magnificent waves! It is sexy, lovely, beautiful, natural, feminine, and very attractive!!!

How about this, after reading a few of the answers, why not keep your hair, but maybe a trim. it doesnt have to be short, but not a wild untamed bush. Keep it trimmed, and when you find a guy, maybe you can ask him if he prefers shaven or trimmed or whatever. maybe try shaving it once to see how you like it. if you do, awesome, if not, hey you gave it a try. And if the guy makes a big fuss out of it, YOU have the pussy, YOU make the rules lol.

i was very concerned about this issue myself once. being the youngest of four sisters but alot of pressure on me. they would give me the revolting and dirty speeches (which by the way is wrong, it is unhygenic to be bald) saying i had to get rid of it. however when ever they were single they all went natural too... i have decided i wont change and shave when i get a boyfriend, if he would make an issue over something as insignificant as pubic hair then clearly he is shallow and not the man for me.

For one you can't do a number of positions because the regrowing hairs hurt your penis when you thrust in and out.

And two, I don't find it attractive that my 16 year old girlfriend has the same looking vagina as an 10 year old.

Honestly it's up to your boyfriend, deff don't shave it just because of everyone else.

Well in today's culture it is perceived that shaven crotches are a real sex appeal. Also not to mention starvation for thin, stick looks, glossy hair, pouty lips, etc.

Personally, I do not think you should be concerned with shaving your 'area' for two reasons.

1) if you are not planning to be sexually active, nobody is going to see your crotch. So does it matter? I mean nobody is going to really see your area.

2) enjoy who you are as an individual, you don't have to worry about perfection in all areas. Don't grow up too fast, enjoy being a child! ;)

when the time does come then maybe you can consider shaving for sexual activities.

Let's decide on some things. First you obviously don't care whether or not you are shaved or you wouldn't be asking the Internet. So don't listen to the people who say do what you want because they don't understand that you aren't quite sure what you want. Secondly, I'm guessing you shave your legs and armpits as well as any other rogue hairs. Hair in the wrong places is disgusting. Wait until you have a boyfriend and get his preferance. I don't think that pubic hair is attractive. I suppose some people do, considerably in Asia where it is very popular, but in some places hair is frowned upon. Nor should you listen to the people who link shaving with pedophilia. A mature vagina and a childs vagina are very different, even when they both lack pubes, I doubt any of these people have children, or they wouldn't be answering online advise columns all day long. And so we know that men can prefer either, most don't mind and what ever you choose there is nothing wrong with it. So what the hell try shaven, trimmed or wild, as long as you aren't trying to impress anyone in particular what ever you choose will be fine. However you obviously care about others opinions, so please your boyfriend they way he would shave himself for you.

Although there was a great variation of responses by men where some preferred pubic hair, at least trimmed, or completely shaven- I am really surprised at how many women that replied to this opt for the natural way. Interesting.

As a female, I prefer to keep it trimmed when I am not in a relationship. Especially during my period, it can get really nasty if not trimmed! However, when I am in a relationship and being sexually active I like to be shaven. Why? Simply because it makes ME feel SEXY. Of course, I would love to save myself that sort of embarrassment of just about having sex for the first time with someone new and they are turned off by me not having of been shaved. Awkward!

I think for hygiene purposes, it is good to keep it groomed, trimmed, and clean around the bikini line.

Otherwise, do what is most comfortable for you.

On that note, if you don't really care, ask your partner what they find attractive and do as such for them. Some like designs- which is kind of weird to me, but hey, people like what they like.

A male reader, anonymous, writes (6 April 2010):

Ideas about this have certainly changed in the last 5 or 10 years! In my generation (and as far as I can tell, for hundreds of generations before mine), female pubic hair was considered highly erotic. For myself and the all the guys I grew up with in the 70's, there was nothing more sensuous than the thought of seeing and stroking that furry, pretty little thing. EVERY guy thought it was sexy -- the idea of a bald pussy seemed as weird and upsetting to us as a woman shaving her HEAD bald. Then suddenly everything changed, and since about 2005 or so, the majority opinion is that pubic hair is unkempt, ugly, nasty, dirty. Well, most guys my age think that's terribly sad. Maybe this "new look" comes from the fact that private parts are no longer private in the Internet age, and so they're now subject to the whims of the fashion police like everything else. The lesson women have always been taught is to be ashamed of their looks and to strive for somebody else's made-up ideal of beauty; and now that apparently includes their most intimate parts as well. Too bad.

Pubic hair is natural unless of course your more interested in little girls.

I notice that in your pic you have no hair on your chest....Ya trying to look young for the little girls?

If you had a job you wouldn't have time to shave all that hair.... because you would be too busy working like most men!

There is nothing wrong with a woman having pubic hair. It is a perfectly natural part of life.

If a man can't deal with pubic hair on a woman then he doesn't need a woman.

Hi everyone,

LOL great discussion...

I'm personally not a big a fan of the ol' thick boot brush. I started trimming down below in my early 20's (early to mid 1990s). I totally felt comfortable with it back then... And I never expected any of my girlfriends to do the same...

Now its a daily thing, it takes 1 min once you get he hang of it. I am not sure why some people are going on about the " it costs me a fortune in razors ". You can use a razor more than once you know (LOL). What about those long hairy legs? Do it in the shower with soapy water and you will not get a rash. PS: Also use cream afterward.

So my answers are:

1. Should girls shave their pubic hair? I personally like it trimmed...

2. ...or do guys find it attractive? yes I do find it attractive

im a girl, and personally, if he's upset about your pubic hair then he probably isn't worth it.

if you're brave, wax it, or get some hair removal cream.

if you don't want to take it off, that's fine, don't let a guy make you do something with it you don't want to - if he wants you to take it all off, tell him that he's gotta take all his off as well, and see how he reacts. :)

Pubic hair is natural, it is there for a reason. The sign of a grown woman, is a full bush between her legs. One of my biggest turn-ons, up there with a voluptuous figure, is a hairy bush. It isn't just the look, it is the feel - fantastic. How can anyone get a thrill from touching something that feels like the head of Right Said Fred? My biggest turn-off, is shaved pubic hair - it is gross and stomach churning. I am a man in my forties, and twenty odd years ago, this lunacy was totally unheard of. Maybe it is an age thing, but I am very suspicious of men who are turned on by shaved pubic hair, and at the risk of being controversial, there is something paedophilic about being turned on by a shaved bush. This nonsense that it is done for hygiene reasons, is an insult to the intelligence. If women shower or wash down below every day there isn't a problem. I hope this vile fad disappears for good.

I think this is one of those "you should try it and see what you think" deals. As a male, I like it shaved -- makes eating pussy more pleasurable. Also, it makes the clit and labia more visible, and as I find them beautiful, it's nice to be able to see them on my lover.

But some people's skin gets really irritated -- in that case, it may well not be worth it to you. May depend on how much it appeals to your partner, too -- if it gets you a fantastic response, that may make it worthwhile. Or not, I guess, depending on how you feel about your partner.

ToadChops agony auntFrankly, I think you should try shaving it all off and see how you find it. Personally I cannot fathom how other women manage to spend that amount of time shaving it every day to stop the stubble, plus putting up with rashes and cuts (it WILL happen) which feel and look vile. You however may prefer how it looks and be lucky enough to have oodles of time on your hands and to not get rashes. Give it a go.

And as to what men think - some men are mature enough to realise that it doesn't damn well matter. Trimmed is a good default if you're not sure, and convenient. If he cares about it too much, tell him you won't touch him unless you can shave a loveheart into his and dye it pink, cause that's what floats your boat.

I have a long-term girlfriend, and I find it most attractive when it's trimmed and she has her bikini line done.

A shaven haven is a beautiful thing, in no way does it relate you to a youngster, in fact quite the opposite because its quite a mature thing to do. The same as if you like your man with a freshly rinsed sack to dig your mouth into. Be brave and shave ladies.

Pubic hair is a major part of your sexuality. Why would any girl want to look less sexy. I think the guys that want it all shaved off are just thinking about being with a young girl that doesn't have any pubic hair yet. And besides that. Why spend all the extra time trying to look like something your not "all mature girls have pubic hair" when you don't have to. I think that maybe if girls want to shave their pubic hair that maybe guys should insist on girls shaving their forearms, any hair on their fingers, toes, eye brows, and head as well. After all, girls seem to like shaving,,,might as well make a day of it.... LOL

Some funny answers here. Saw a program recently about this.

Real polls (not internet polls) show most men prefer completely bare - surprisingly even among older men. Young teens were more likely to prefer "hair there" - apparently because they had hair there and they want to be sure their partner was mature, but the rest, bare is best.

(As for trimmed, landing strips or other design's being 'sexy', some liked it though most considered it just looked like a half finished job, either do it all or dont bother).

As for 'God made us that way' - he also made hair grow on our head and om mens faces, most tend to cut it, shape it - apart from some with cultural reasons it comes down to personal choice. Very few people though, just let it go 'as God intended' (you would also have to include fingernails there) - so that's the death of that argument.

As for hygene: there is no proven medical evidence that says it is better either way.

As for shaving vs waxing vs removal creams: Shaving was most common. A new rapidly growing trend is permanent removal, laser/electrolysis. Those that did the permanent were happy they would never have to think about it again, and less than 1/4 percent had regrets. Again the age spread was very wide.

A lot of people called the shaved look a fad, apparently historically the opposite is true, it's been more common to remove the hair then keep it.

As for men removing their hair: well the number doing it is increasing, and from proper polls many more women preferred their men clean - it is predicted that will become real big. (Consider 30 or so years ago a 'real man had a hairy chest' - not any more.)

At the end of the day though, it's personal choice.

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

Ladies, understand that the fundamental reason so many young guys like it all shaved is because they have learnt it from porn. Unfortunate as it may be, this is the major part of most young men's sex education.

Pubic shaving didn't become popular until the mid to late 90s, by when had lost it's "taboo" status in porn (take a look at any 80s playboy magazine and you'll never find a shaven woman). Add the internet revolution into the mix and it spread like wildfire and became the hip new sexual thing to do.

During my travels and people I've met from around the world, it seems extensive body shaving is a predominantly American and Latino standard. It is also quite popular in upper class of middle eastern countries, but generally only expected on women.

Europe is more liberal, followed by asian countries and then african / caribbean countries who often don't shave any part of their bodies. Notice the trend that the further you are away from the epicentre of porn culture and western standards, the more acceptance of body hair. (excluding the middle east!)

Choose what you feel is right for you. Don't worry what other people think or are doing.

It's your body and you need to learn to love it and accept it. But you should never feel dirty for being hairy, people that believe that are seriously misled. If that were the case all our ancestors would've had a lot of genital problems don't you think? It must stagger some people to consider how life used to be before porn showed us the way huh?
