To feel like the only woman left who doesn't shave her pubes? 😂

During a group WhatsApp with friends last night, conversation (somehow!) turned to pubes. It would seem I am the only one who doesn't shave the whole lot off. I've done it a couple of times in the past but it itched when growing back and I actually feel sexier with a bit of a muff! Does anyone else not shave these days or am I a vile ogre?

You’re not the only one.

It's not all or nothing. Some people just trim or tidy the sides or do a landing strip. Shaving pubes doesn't always mean all the hair off.

I don’t shave it all but I get rid of everything except the landing strip every so often. It feels cleaner to me personally but I don’t care what others do with their own public hair

I don’t, but that’s because I’m single. If I’m in a relationship then yes I do.

I don't like the idea of nothing - it's just not me. I tidy them up every so often but nope, I'm pubed and proud.

Surely you know you're not the only one. Common sense would dictate you are not. Not sure why you need to ask women on the internet for details of their public hair...

I don't, I can't be bothered. I'm not particularly hairy though, unlike the rest of my body, so maybe if I had a wondrous bush I would neaten it up a bit.

I lumead mine 18 months ago so don't have anything there now, and limited regrowth that needs zapping once a month or so. The lumea is the best invention ever in my book!!

I don't smile

In my case its all better covered up. I have shaved the lot off once or twice in my life, but didn't like the feel of it.

I don't. Used to get a bikini wax every few months but I'm au naturel now

dementedpixie Tue 05-May-20 13:58:17

I go from 70s bush to neatly trimmed but not fully removed. Currently in a growing phase

Yes quite. 🤔

The thought of shaving my bush makes me angry

BlueBooby Tue 05-May-20 14:00:02

I'm not a hairy person on the rest of my body but my pubes are a different story. They've started to grow in places I didn't know they could. I shave them all off nowadays because I don't know how to just tidy it up anymore. I want to try and brave a wax when it's back open but I'm embarrassed by how I look down there.

Sparklingbrook Tue 05-May-20 14:00:22

I have never discussed this (and don't feel the need) and I have no idea of the pubic hair status of any of my friends and family so I have no idea.

BlueBooby Tue 05-May-20 14:01:41

@Desmondo2016 sorry but what does lumead them mean? If it stops regrowth it sounds like something I'd like to try.

CarolFuckingBaskinsPetCat Tue 05-May-20 14:03:45

I get everything waxed off and have done for years

I prefer it. It's growing now and I'll shave it in a week or so 🤷🏽‍♀️ the male in the house has never ever once expressed an opinion on it

peperethecat Tue 05-May-20 14:04:36

I wax mine quite regularly but I wouldn't shave down there. I imagine it would feel like a brillo pad most of the time.

YetAnotherSpartacus Tue 05-May-20 14:04:42

Never shaved. But then I don't shave anything and haven't for decades, probably stopped when I was just out of my teens.

ScarfLadysBag Tue 05-May-20 14:05:45

I used to shave when I was younger but now I just keep it very very short, basically almost shaven just without the regrowth. Just personal preference, really. DH has never expressed an opinion!

bridgetreilly Tue 05-May-20 14:06:11

I think it looks SO weird on grown women to have it completely shaved off. Trimmed, tidied, whatever, fine. But completely bare? Ugh.

NeurotrashWarrior Tue 05-May-20 14:06:33

I don't, never have!

Always found it a bit odd and a waste of time.
