I've-always- wanted a large number of people to answer this question./weird. Just don't know what's 'normal'.

Trim for me, wax is just annoying, shaving is itchy and scratchy and natural is apparently not socially acceptable :-\

I give it a trim every now and again just!

Trim and tidy. Am not keen on hair escaping my not very high cut tankini. I shaved completely once blush it was awful. I am not a prepubescent girl. Trimming and tidying is what I do with hair on my scalp, eyebrows. But then I am 45, I am sure the yoof contingent will be along soon to tell us men like it it's cleaner wink

I shave the bits that stick out of swimwear, as I have pubes that grow across onto my upper thigh.

Nowt. Life's too short and DH doesn't like pruned ladygardens!

My 'lady garden' is massive. It's down the back of my thighs, long black hair, and my inner thighs to halfway down. So not like a few spiders legs poking out. I leave it wild in winter, but it needs attention now - will use wax strips and immac.

Clipped very short but not waxed or shaved, grow back is too painful and itchy

shave blush which I hate doing but hate the idea of waxing more. And OH has a smooth preferance. I personally don't care so if I was single it would be nowt.

Full 70s bush, with bits at the side trimmed/shaved in the summer! I occasionally trim it with nail kitchen scissors, when I can be bothered.

I honestly don't know what is the most common way of Pubic Hair Management nowadays (worded that badly, but you know what I mean). How 'usual' is a Brazilian? 20%? 70%? Is it age dependent?

Shave it all off. Balder than a plucked turkey. Such a nice mental image smile

Wolfiefan Thu 04-Apr-13 21:57:30

Just started waxing. Question. What do you use to trim?

YoothaJoist Thu 04-Apr-13 21:58:16

Nowt. I like it, DP likes it, and 'socially acceptable' is bullshit: I don't show society my genitalia.

Nail scissors!

Loislane78 Thu 04-Apr-13 21:59:24

When people are saying 'nowt' you mean au natural or all off?

Short back and sides wax for me.

Buddhagirl Thu 04-Apr-13 21:59:36

Holla! Lol :-D

Buddhagirl Thu 04-Apr-13 22:00:13

Nah fair play, should have gone in chat, sorry peoples,

selsigfach Thu 04-Apr-13 22:01:15

I'm a hairy beast with no difference between pubes and leg fur. I shave all the way from ankles to knicker line and trim what's left. I find the bald porn look creepy. If anyone ever wanted me bald down there, I'd think they were a pervert.

Buddhagirl Thu 04-Apr-13 22:01:20

Au natural lois

MadCap Thu 04-Apr-13 22:01:42

Full on 70s minge. Dh doesn't care. Trimmed and sides shaved for swimming.

NaturalBlondeYeahRight Thu 04-Apr-13 22:02:40

Trim here too, tidy up around edges in summer/swimming. Hate the thought that my dd will feel pressurised into whipping it all off- there is no nice way to do it. Hate this trend and am only in 30's. I hear its contributing to the spread of warts now [grim]

meditrina Thu 04-Apr-13 22:05:33

Natural is fine! I don't show the area to enough people for there to be a general social interest.

I do trim the bits that stick out from a (not particularly high cut) swimming cossie in the holiday season, but that's all.
