“I Mean, You Can’t Even Have Morning Sex”

I have a confession to make everyone.

I strongly recommend that family members close the page now. [Don’t say I didn’t warn you]. Al-right, hold on to your hats, here I go.

I have pubic hair.

Phew! I am so glad I got that off my chest. Are you done retching or reeling in shock? I know that shock announcement falls somewhere between “I pick my nose and eat it” and “I lost my virginity to my cousin” on the disgust-ometer.

Whilst having tea with some lovely lady friends the other day, the topic came up as one of our number was off to have her vagina waxed. Apparently these days it’s necessary.  Necessary. It’s not something I’ve ever felt the need to do. Surprising as it may be, I have never felt the need to hand over any of my hard-earned cash to have a stranger spread sticky stuff over my nether regions and wax my pubes off strip by strip. It’s painful. And they make you go on all-fours to do your ass crack. Crazy as I very may well be, it just doesn’t sound like a whole pile of fun.

But somehow, it has become necessary. Why? Because if you just shave [and in a moment we’ll move on to why even that is necessary] “you can’t even have morning sex”. Really ladies? Is one nights worth of regrowth such a horrendous thing that you couldn’t let your other half near you? Apparently so.

The thing is, if and when I eventually have a baby, I’d like Daddy to be there for the birth. Now he’s going to have to deal with a lot in that situation; dilation, an umbilical cord, possible even involuntary pooping. If he can’t deal with the idea that a woman might have some pubic hair, I’m just not sure he’s going to be able for all of that. I need a man made of sterner stuff.

The idea that women should be bare is a relatively recent phenomenon. I’m blaming porn for giving men the idea that only a vagina with less hair than a 14 year old can be considered attractive. The pictures dotted around this post are from 1970s issues of Playboy and Penthouse and I for one think they’re pretty sexy. Don’t you?

Some would argue it’s more hygienic to wax or shave and I’m not going to argue with that. I’m not opposed to a bit of “maintenance” as you might put it, you certainly don’t need to consider me an advocate of Keith Lemon’s Jackson 5 theory! I’m merely throwing it out there that in a world without taboos, we accept that women were given pubic hair by evolution or by God depending on what you believe in, and it’s not necessary to get rid of it.

Your thoughts?

  1. Nothing wrong with a bit of pubes

    Yes! Everything, yes!!! I agree with you that this comes from the porn industry. Loving the retro pictures – what happened to our ideal of beauty?!?

    Good timing with this, have you been following the story of a Galway girl (now living in London) who went on This Morning with unshaven underarm hair? The public reaction was unbelievable. You would swear she had clubbed a baby seal live on air.

  4. I was beginning to wonder if all young people had lost their minds about this particular subject; so glad to know you’re out there, Katie.

    I have often wondered why it just went away. I appreciate your candid comments on the subject even if it might be somewhat taboo.

    Back in the seventies, it was rare to find a lady shaved, that kind of made it interesting. But now days, it is all gone. More or less commonplace, the accepted norm. What we have now is a very nice house, but not a whole lot of shrubbery in the yard, and I miss it. The soft bush that is … Not the yard work. hahahahahahahahahaa

    Oh, I think I just hurt myself.

  6. And do you leave a landingstrip or not? If not do you look like a 12 year old? I asked many women about this, but never any men….I blogged about this before,
    http://sosassyandsingle.com/2012/04/18/wax-on-wax-off-the-brazilian-way/ , but I think it could use a lot more discusion.
    ANNND… Not only are women taking it all off…so are men!
