Why ladies shouldn't shave their pubic hair - Health Experts

Women who shave their vaginas thinking it is more hygienic are actually putting themselves at greater risk of infection, according to experts. Not only does the hair stop viruses and bacteria reaching genitalia, it also acts as a cushion for the sensitive labia and vagina.
Dr Vanessa Mackay, from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, told The Independent
"Pubic hair offers a natural barrier to keep things clean, to decrease contact with viruses and bacteria, and to protect the tender skin of the area.
"While protecting against diseases and skin problems, pubic hair prevents foreign particles like dust and pathogenic bacteria from entering the body.Pubic hair also helps to control the moisture of the area which decreases the chances of yeast infections."
The study by JAMA Dermatology also found that women not only groom for 'social events' but also break out the razor when visiting a health care professional because they are "self-conscious about their appearance even in nonsocial settings".
The most common reasons for grooming were hygiene (59% of women sureyed), because they believe it makes their genitals more attractive (31.5%), and because their partner prefers it (21.1%).

  1. I love a full bush! It should be clean anyway. Some bushes can be really dirty LOL

  2. Thanks for this expert advise and for quoting source. (haha recently saw Njorku's candid opinion)
    Anyway i had this question in mind as am due to groom mine. I was like what is this hair doing here sef. You groom it when it starts growing it's problem for you. It's like there's a party down there and you need to attend to it. Ah! women have suffered.
    Some men have the audacity to complain about Bush when their armpits are maintaining a forest.

  3. If true what is the purpose of the pubic hair in men? I just think its nasty and looks ugly with bushy hair especially when going downtown Chicago, then you wish you were a muslim? Some pubic hairs keep lice as well called crab lice, these things cral backwards
