I put this in Politics, Economics, (etc.) because I know for some women this IS a political issue.

I ran into a stack of old Penthouse magazines and after looking through them (for sociological reasons, of course) I was reminded that way back when (before some of the younger members here were born, no doubt) women had hair down there. Today, they're bald as newborn babies. At least, that's the impression you might get from much of the nude images today.

The question is: pubes...thumbs up or thumbs down. And why, if you want to discuss it. I've heard women argue that pubes are unhealthy. I've heard men complain of rug burn tongue. I'm not sure I buy either of those arguments. 

If you want to discuss men and their pubes as well, that's fine, too.

LOL Gallup, you rock!

Pubes , me personally dont like them on my own body. Everybody's body to their own. The reason why I dont like them, is that they are sweat collectors, and with sweat they collect dirt and old skin. They too get very itchy. If society was nudist, I dont think pubes would be too much of a bother, since there wont be any clothes that would keep them en capsuled, and collecting sweat.

Ok, I shave when it's more comfortable. Slight chance of TMI, so avert now, I encourage it.

I shave my junk because it's more sanitary. It helps keep things aired out, cleaner looking, and hell, it just makes me feel cleaner. I shave my chest in the winter, and no, it's not counter intuitive. In the winter, I rarely sweat. The air is generally drier, and my skin as well. I can handle a shaved chest in the winter. But in the summer, it's hot, sweaty, humid and skin is just more prone to irritation in the summer. A shirt sticking to a hot sweaty chest doesn't feel nice at all. It's a matter of preference. Now some hair, should just be shaved or waxed all the time. I have a wonderfully shaped head for shaving, so I hit it up with #1 on my trusty ol clippers twice a week. For convenience, comfort and cleanliness. Ain't nobody dope as me, I'm just so fresh, so clean. I would like a woman to be the same:)

Politics on hair of any kind is no more catty than spatting over ale or lager. Some like hair, some don't. Some are hairy, some aren't. Pirates or Ninjas? Wood elves or Dwarfs? Empire Strikes or Return?

To have anything more than friendly banter over the topic would be ridiculous.

This is not much of a political issue for men. It's different for women.

A lot of feminists feel that shaving the female pelvic area has little to do with sanitation and a lot more to do with porn and male partner pressure. Many of them don't buy the hygiene issue regarding pubic lice, believing that there are far better ways to avoid that and other STD's (safe sex, more responsibility in choosing partners, etc.). In that regard, they are in line with the general medical community who, it must be noted, are NOT promoting removal of body hair for medical reasons in most cases (there may be reason to do so in some cases, of course). 

Googling on topic combinations with keywords like "pubes, pubic hair, feminism, politics, and political," will give you ample references to think about.

Any one for a Vajazzle?

I'm sure there are many things to be jazzled...I would go for purple sparklies! LOL!!!

Perhaps a pink merkin, then?

So, if I understand right, some women vajazzle their v'jayjay?

Only the good ones bud. Only the good ones. I've never in my life let on I was rasping on a hair. Just keep swallowing. The feeling soon goes away. Thumbs up for jungle here.

I think one thing that has to be said is that the oft-used reason for shaving or waxing is "to avoid getting crab lice" may leave the impression there's no downside and that there are no alternatives to removing the hair.

One doesn't get crab lice off toilet seats, one gets it because of irresponsible sex. If not one's own irresponsible sex, then the irresponsible sex of the person you're having sex with, and if you're having that sort of sex, there are other diseases one can contract as well. Your best way not to get crabs is to be a little more careful in your sex life in terms of knowing who you're having sex with and learning what their standards are as to whom they choose to have sex with.

The medical community is indicating that shaving and waxing exposes one to viruses due to the micro-abrasions and micro-injuries those practices cause.

I have been, and hope to continue to be a photographer of nudes. Personally, as a matter of aesthetics, I think a dark triangle down there is a nice natural decoration.
