    Get out of hair! Most American women like to go bare down there

    More than half of American women admit to going completely bare down there.

    It’s perhaps not surprising that most American women — 84% — perform a little bikini-area landscaping. What’s shocking is just how far we’ll go: A whopping 62% say they go completely pube-free.
    The hair-raising new JAMA Dermatology report released this week surveyed 3,316 ladies and found that pruning pubes was the norm, especially among younger, college-educated white women. And get this: 59% said they groomed for “hygienic purposes.”
    Though a common misconception, the idea that hairless is somehow hygienic isn’t rooted in any real science. (So much for that education.) “It might feel ‘cleaner’ — but that’s like saying shaving your head bald makes your head cleaner than if you have long, wavy hair,” said Dr. Fahimeh Sasan, Assistant Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science at Mount Sinai. (Which it doesn’t.) “As long as you wash yourself every day and change your underwear, you’re going to be just as clean.”
    If anything, choosing to wax or shave your delicate bits can risk minor injury, mostly commonly cuts, ingrown hairs and burns. Some more severe side effects can include allergic reactions to products, and vulvar and vaginal infections, or some researchers suggest that nicks and razor burn may help spread STIs. (Per JAMA, shaving was the preferred depilation method by far — 73% reported using razors, while only 5% waxed.)
    Red, white and boobs: Americans boast the world's biggest breasts
    It all comes down to personal preference, Dr. Sasan said. Pubic grooming has no real benefit or drawback — though she suspects cultural forces are driving the trend. “I see hundreds of women a week, and it’s a popular thing because it’s all over the media: Supermodels, the Kardashians, the covers of magazines and Victoria’s Secret,” she said.
    Becky, 24, who’s been going “Full Monty” since she was 14, says she felt pressured to fit in with her clean-shaven friends growing up, and now it’s just become a habit.
    “I have a routine: I brush my teeth, shave my vagina,” she told The Daily News.

    Becky-with-the-no-hair says she even waxed her close friends’ bikini lines for them, since they were shy about seeing a professional. Some 92% of the women surveyed in the new study also said they took care of everything on their own. “I think self-care is important, no matter what it is and what your choices are,” she said. “I definitely think it’s something I’m going to grow out of and not do anymore.”
    Now hair this: Kendall Jenner leads girls shaving legs by age 10
    The JAMA report reveals that grooming practices are also rooted in smoothing things over with a sexual partner. Almost one-third said they felt primping their pubic hair made their “vagina look nicer.” In fact, women overall were less likely to groom if their partners didn’t, or if their partners didn't prefer it. But for some, it wasn’t all about the other guy or gal: 19.6% felt being bare made oral sex easier.
    “I have girlfriends whose boyfriends would be grossed out if they had pubic hair,” Becky said. “I’ve always thought that was f---ed up, because we’re not policing men’s pubic hair.”
    Yet income level, relationship status and geographic location had no impact on whether a woman was more likely to groom the bikini area or not, and neither did how often they had sex, the types of sex they had or their partner’s gender.
    “Future direction for research include understanding the cultural differences as they relate to pubic hair grooming and the role of the health care professional in influencing women’s grooming habits,” the study concluded.

    Whenever I see pictures of women from the 70s and 80s I always find myself feeling bad for the dudes of that era having to deal with all that bush.

    The Landing Strip

    A landing strip is similar to a Brazilian, but it leaves a thin strip of hair in place just above the vagina.

    Pros:

    • You can wear just about any type of swimsuit without worrying about your hair showing
    • There are fewer mess & odor problems
    • The landing strip won’t turn off anyone who thinks a bare vulva makes you look like a young girl
    Cons:

    • The landing strip can be time consuming and painful
    • It can be hard to get the shape just right
    I think the landing strip is the best option if you want to be able to wear any swimsuit without showing off your pubic hair. And if you don’t mind a little bit of pain or cost to get the right look.

    I went through said transition like one goes through a windshield.

    Early 80's high school in farm country, PA. Off to college in South Florida (Miami Vice time).

    Memorial Day 1983, I'm "parting the hairs" on girls with Jiffy Pop bulges in their granny panties and then, a week after Labor Day, I encounter one real life Barbie after the next.

    18YO mind blown.
