Shaving pubic hair is not something that would surprise anyone really. It has to do with some cultural trends, according to a few sociological theories, and practically everyone’s doing.
The most common body areas shaved for females are the underarms, legs, pubic area, eyebrows, and face, and for the males the faces, abdomen, back, chest, groin, and legs. The most common method used for the underarms, legs and pubic area is the shaving.
If you want to know why you should not shave your pubic hair, then read these seven reasons:
- Pubic hair contains pheromones;
These pheromones are an interesting mix in our pubes and they make us more attractive. While our body sweats they develop more and they also increase sexual stimulation and arousal in potential sexual mates.
- Shaving off all pubic hair might mean you’re more likely to catch Molluscum Contagiosum;
This is a viral skin infection and it is generally harmless, but it can look unsightly and it can lead to itching.
- Hair removal can give you abscesses;
Abscesses on the skin are caused by bacteria that is entering the body through the hair follicle. The treatment for this is antibiotics or an operation, which carries a danger risk.
- The time;
Do you know how much time you can save up if you stop shaving? A study showed that the average woman spends two months of her life removing pubic hair. That is a good reason to turn you off the practice.
- Pubic hair helps control your body temperature;
If you remove your pubes, you could mess up your body’s ability to cool itself down. On each hair follicle there is a sebaceous gland which releases oils onto the hair and when this oil evaporates, it cools the skin.
- Increased chance of STDs
The pesky short and curlies help in protecting you from a variety of nasty STDs. If you remove them that leaves you open to an array of conditions, including genital warts and herpes.
- Friction burn.
The pubic hair acts as a cushion and it can prevent skin irritation. If you have a hair-free lady garden that leaves you open to experience a pretty painful dose of friction.
