More rubbish from the drooling cosmetic industry.

I've seen more bush on more continents in my life than any of you have had breakfasts, lunches and dinners.

The only pubic lice I ever saw were on derelicts and doped out junkies.

Never seen cooties on normal clean unshaved people.

On the other hand the legion of the shaved frequently rock up with pimples, raspy stubble, razor nicks, ingrown hairs, rashes, laser or chemical burns and enlarged groin nodes.

Sheep, the lot of you.

PS Bonus story. One young greenhorn engineboy caught the lice and wanted to know what to do. He was told to smear Oil and Grease Remover on the affected area and leave for 30 minutes. After lunch we heard sobbing from his cabin. Turned out that he couldn't find Oil and Grease remover so he used Carbon Remover instead and left in on for an hour to make sure. Bad choice as CR is very caustic and it took him quite some time to regenerate skin in the affected areas. We used to leave some porn magazines in his cabin while he was bedridden, could hear the screams even on the bridge.:eek:

Many years ago (when I was young, and knew no better) a rather good looking blonde lady gave me a dose of crabs, which was a shame as the sex had not been that good.
However, on the bright side, complaining about it at length did get me in to bed with another lady that I had been lusting after for a while.

The current fashion for hair removal is SO unromantic - in previous centuries, women would send their lovers a twist of pubic hair as a keepsake.

Not so long ago, as a woman removed her underclothes, one's fantasies could run wild - was she truly a redhead? Would the garden of earthly delights be straight or curly, extensive or sparse, blonde or dark?

Today there is nothing left to wonder about: one is immediately confronted with the raw vulva, directly exposed, with a standard poor denuded mons above it, bearing the spotty signatures of the unrelenting fight against nature.

One sees the holy of holies, previously to be sensually explored, directly in all it's glory (or unglory), naked and vulnerable, all it's details exposed in an eyeblink.

Women now apologise for their adult vulva - "Sorry, I know it's not nice, I'm going to have a labiaplasty next year", assuming that you, as a red-blooded male, were expecting the innocent, hairless, characterless, lipless vulva of a prepubescent girl.

A modest concealment, once a significant indicator of womanhood, is torn out as soon as it appears. And if a woman can afford it, the labia are surgically excised to childhood proportions. Pedophilia anyone?

As Caitlin Moran points out, "Sometimes girls now use pubic hair as a sort of chastity belt. Like if you want to make sure you donít have sex with someone, you simply donít shave or wax so you wonít be tempted, thatís how prevalent waxing is". The assumption being that any decent man, on catching sight of the adult fleece, will be so nauseated as to flee drooping from the scene.

What HAS happened to us?

I could blame the Islamic influx, with it's draconian laws on female depilation and the infantilisation of women in general (and known predilection for sex with preadolescents of both kinds).

But of course the answer really is Big Business (and it IS big business, being worth over $4bn in the US alone), which cares nothing for women's health, comfort or romance and now having conquered women, is successfully persuading men (men?) to shave their chests and legs and whatnot as well.

All sold on the totally spurious platform of "hygiene" (of which it is an antithesis) and a petit bourgeois idea of "tidyness".

The irony of it all is that we now have a new kind of kinky. I have a patient in the pr0n business and he tells me that "hairy" pornsites, showing natural women, are increasingly popular and profitable.

Mr Seldom,

She only did it for the scientific interest. She dumped me after some pretty good sex. I was heartbroken until the next one came along shortly afterwards.

Isnt it just a fashion thing?
I doubt there are as many Brazilian waxers out there as the wax manufacturers would like everyone to believe, though the young 'uns do seem to be keen on the trend. The participants of the last informal poll I was a part of (at a very boozy girls' night out) generally favoured high bikini waxes (what Slash is referring to), though we were all over thirty. It may be different with a younger group.

The original article struck me as being suspiciously advertorial; a bit like the articles you get in women's magazines that quote 'studies' showing that women who don't wear makeup/ stockings/ this year's stupid trousers (harem pants, anyone? :yuk:) will spontaneously combust :ooh:. They're invariably followed by a bunch of ads for the aforementioned 'necessities'. :hmm:

They're touting the same story to blokes at the moment; that all women like men to have hairless chests. Total rubbish IMO, but I've no doubt that it sells a lot of wax.

That's photo has been around for years. Heavily photoshopped with the implication that everyone not smooth as an egg looks like that.

Over here the totally-bald look is well nigh universal in the under 40's (and over 70's :E). I and my gynae/derma pals regularly see complications (abscesses, ingrown hairs, pustules, burns, rashes, enlarged groin nodes) from these foolish manipulations.

Demand for labiaplasty has soared - last week I saw one woman butchered by a general surgeon (irreparably) and refused a fifteen-year old who was hysterical about her normal and quite modest labia minora.

This is a foolish, unhealthy, pedophilic and exceedingly profitable trend promoted by an industry that cares nothing for women's health or comfort.

Interesting. I believe they're on the rise here too, though maybe not to the same extent. I think Internet porn has a lot to do with 'down there' body dysmorphia ; in the real world most straight women don't actually see many (if any) examples other than their own, so if it doesn't look exactly like what gals on xxx websites have, they think it's faulty. The 'net makes porn a whole lot more accessible, and I think a surprising number of women have been taking a peek and getting neurotic.

Alternatively, I guess the fifteen year old may have been told by her 'expert' teenage boyfriend (where expert is defined as 'watches a lot of porn' :bored:) that she looks Weird.

With other body parts like noses or even breasts, it's a lot easier to see what a variety of shapes and sizes are part of the normal spectrum.

"Alternatively, I guess the fifteen year old may have been told by her 'expert' teenage boyfriend (where expert is defined as 'watches a lot of porn' ) that she looks Weird. "

Nope, she'd just been browsing the Web and talking to her friends who all want labiaplasties too (from looking at Web pr0n) which now defines pediatric genitals as the norm. These genital stars have all either had their labia minora removed or (more frequently, for porn stars are not fools) photoshopped away.

Quote: "....because nothing is sexier than a childlike vag."

And the same people who want to castrate pedophiles in public are the ones who want their women to have the genitals of a prepubescent child.

Anuone see a serious disconnect here?

And the same people who want to castrate pedophiles in public are the ones who want their women to have the genitals of a prepubescent child.Do they? Or is it the women who want that? IME women are far more judgemental about female appearance than men. Of course it's often women who call for castrating of paedophiles, so maybe you have a point. Nothing like fifteen year old 'friends' when you're female; I had a few. Pitiful bitches they were, but at least in the good ol' days it was all about underarm hair and bikini top size. Pretty tame stuff compared to surgery.

I hadn't heard about getting bits removed. That's awful. :sad:

Web porn has a bit to answer for. I can't find any handy links but there is an Australian sex therapist called Bettina Arndt who writes for sensible women's magazines. She has a theory that teenagers (male and female) are developing a very warped view of sex and genatalia because they are viewing internet porn before they really understand what they're seeing.

It's a bit like showing a five year old the Alien films; they'll think the Aliens are real, and not realise they were allegorical at best and a fantasy at their most basic, made out of plastic and CGI algorithms.

Likewise internet porn: her point is that we grown ups largely realise porn's done by actors who are Pretending, but the average teenager thinks it's all real. For the most part they don't get any better direction from their elders (because we still don't talk about real sex much, particularly with children) so they don't learn that it's all plastic and as fake as Ripley fighting the Aliens. I don't have the article to hand, but she made some valid points re anal sex, female genatalia, fake breasts and other porn 101 stalwarts.

Because it's an icky topic, unlike the aliens we don't tell them otherise and we don't disillusion them, so they grow up thinking it's all real, right until they try it out. :( I recall (loosely) that one of her points was that we are now allowing sex education to be conducted by pornographers because we don't want to deal with it, and this is harming our teenagers.

I think you're seeing the signs of that.

Worrals makes some excellent points

The Victorian art critic John Ruskin was horrified to discover, on his wedding night, that Effie Gray had "hair down there". Ruskin had come to believe, from statuary and paintings, that the vulva was some sort of smooth, inoffensive, featureless je ne sais quoi construct that had something to do with babies.

Over one hundred years later, this is what we are being taught.

If my eighteen year old son goes looking for nude women on the Web, then he's going to find 'em all hairless and lipless - when he gets his gf's panties down he finds her bald as an egg. That's what he's learned. If at Uni he beds a normal woman (I nearly wrote "normal"), he's in for a furry surprise.

This is a major conquest of society, firstly by the pornographers (hair interferes with the camera's view of the genitals) and secondly by the cosmetic industry, who found that they could generate vast profits from telling us that we all stink, that the genitals are untidy and dirty (and must be cleaned up) and that hair (except on the head) is an abomination.

The interesting thing is that most men aren't that bothered - a straw poll on the Web indicates that 30% of men like it natural, 20% insist on bald and 50% really don't care.

But it is now women themselves who enforce the new norm - try going into the sauna au naturel and hear the bitchy comments about "dirty!" and "gross!".

'Tis a curious world we live in to be sure.

Bikini line waxing and shaving poses infection risk

"Women in bikinis 'Brazilians' and other types of pubic hair removal may pose an infection risk - Men and women seeking a well-groomed bikini line are at greater risk of infections, say researchers.

Waxing and shaving causes micro trauma to the skin, leaving it vulnerable to pathogens like poxvirus, they told a British Medical Journal publication.

The team studied 30 new patients with a poxvirus called molluscum contagiosum who had been treated in a private clinic in France. They say pubic hair removal is becoming increasingly popular among men too. Twenty-four of the 30 patients they examined were men. In all 30 cases, the lesions had appeared in the bikini line area that had been either shaved, waxed or trimmed.

Molluscum contagiosum is highly contagious and easily spread through skin-to-skin contact with someone who is infected or by touching contaminated objects such as a flannel or towel. It usually clears up on its own and does not cause any symptoms other than raised red spots. Squeezing the spots that develop is not recommended because it can cause pain and bleeding and it is likely to leave scarring. It also increases the risk of spreading the infection

The researchers say pubic hair removal could also be a risk factor for other 'minor' infections such as genital warts."

A silly and unhygienic fashion.

Molluscum takes months to clear up, leaves depressed scars and may become chronic. As for genital warts....least said :yuk:

It's up there. :eek:
When I was a teen many people had a free and easy attitude to going home with strangers at the end of the night, but I don't recall people having as blase an attitude to secondary sex acts as many of the current teens do.

Likewise, a male friend with two teenage boys is constantly amazed at what they get up to. He's in his fifties and no goody two shoes (by a loong shot :eek:); a former Sydney surfer, he thought he'd seen, and shagged it all. Not so, if his sons' stories are anything to go by. I can never work out if he's shocked or jealous; probably a bit of both. :E

I guess people my parent's age said the same thing about us, so maybe it's just the way of the world. Unnerving though...

Mac, do people who shave their armpits or legs run the risk of getting that infection, or is it just a genital thing?

"Mac, do people who shave their armpits or legs run the risk of getting that infection, or is it just a genital thing?"

Mostly genital I would guess - leg and pit hairs tend to be finer and less deep-rooted and these areas are less dark and moist.

I see an awful lot of shaved genitals (male too) and the incidence of pimples, irritations, ingrown hairs, rashes and whatnot (including molluscum) is very high.

Rub two of these unhappy pubises together and you have an excellent way of transmitting bugs...

Why DID people start doing this??
