Some women trim it down. Some shave it all off. Some women wax it raw while others bedazzle it to make it look pretty. For years, women have been battling their hair below the waistline. Women spend countless hours and endless dollars on keeping their pubic mound looking tame and bare. Hair removal goes as far back as ancient Egypt and Greece. Egyptians saw a smooth and hairless body as the standard of beauty. Upper class Egyptian women made sure there was not a single hair on their body with the exception of their head.
Women used hair removal creams and types of wax that consisted of oil and honey, to remove body hair. The Greeks and Romans adopted the ideal of a smooth and hairless body that can be seen in Ancient Greek sculptures of women with hairless bodies. The Greeks believed that a hairless body idealized youth and beauty. For women, having body hair was considered low class so all upper class women removed their pubic hair. In Rome, girls began removing their pubic hair from the moment it began to grow.
Hairs were plucked with tweezers, and hair removal creams and waxes were used. Pubic hair removal would blossom and artists from this period would portray women with little or no pubic hair. When Catherine de Medici took over the throne in France in , she used religious conviction and banned the removal of pubic hair.
It was still widely practiced until the Victorian Era, but became a private practice. In the same period, Gillette introduced a new line of shaving instruments, inexpensive safety razors geared towards women. From through the s, women would see a shift in the conservative fashions of the past with clothes revealing bare arms and legs. Women would adapt to these new styles by shaving their legs and underarms. While dresses and gowns got shorter and sleeveless, swimsuits would transform from very conservative to hardly there. With the introduction of the first bikini swimsuit in , women were now faced with removing pubic hair that might be exposed by this new fashion trend.
By the s, pin up models such as Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe and Marie McDonald introduced a pointier bust with halter tops for the heavier busted girls. In , the Vatican banned women from wearing bikinis in Catholic countries, and at the same time, Sports Illustrated published its first swimsuit edition featuring Babette March in a white bikini. According to Meridith Dault, author of The Last Triangle: Sex, Money and the Politics of Pubic Hair , with the rise of feminism in the s and s, many women chose to accept their natural body hair and to reject culturally imposed ideals of hairless, childlike, feminine beauty.
The bikini line became the favorable choice of pubic hair grooming in the s. Some women removed hair from their bikini line to avoid stray hairs that could be seen when wearing a bikini. With bathing suits getting smaller and cut much higher, women would feel the need to go even further with their hair removal.
The thong bikini and a higher cut one piece came into play in the s. The modern day thong bikini was first introduced and popularized by Austrian deer Rudi Gernreich in and continues to this day to be popular. With the thong, the pressure to remove hair everywhere became more common.
The sleek, neoprene, a type of synthetic rubber material, was introduced in the s. Each decade that brought a new swimsuit de revealing more skin would also bring a new style of hair removal to accommodate the changing fashion trend. Jocely, Jonice, Joyce, Janea, Juracy, Jussara, and Judseia Padilha, who worked together as teens in the family salon in Brazil, would later bring their hair removal talents to the United States, along with a new kind of hair removal that leave women bare down there. The Brazilian is a bikini-area wax that removes all hair from the area.
The sisters opened a salon in Midtown Manhattan, named J. Sisters, and by the s, women across the U. But it would be another decade before this new practice would become the norm. And in , the micro bikini was introduced. The microkini is an extremely skimpy bikini that uses only enough fabric to cover the genitals and nipples. There are variations of the microkini that use adhesive or wire to hold the fabric in place over the genitals.
From the ready accessibility of pornography, where pubic hair is currently so rare it has spawned its own fetish, to the widespread attention Brazilian waxing has received in the media, pubic hair removal is merely one among a myriad of body grooming practices many women increasingly indicate they feel obliged follow.
There are reasons why humans grow pubic hair. The most common reason cited for pubic hair is that it helps spread pheromones. According to Health Sciences at Columbia University, the apocrine glands secrete an odorless substance that mixes with the bacteria from the oil that the sebaceous glands give off, to make a unique substance that may or may not have an odor.
These pheromones get trapped in pubic hair and underarm hair, where they can enhance sexual awareness in others, and make people seem sexually desirable. This can be either through an actual smell, or subliminally. In a article by Emily Gibson in The Guardian, she looks at the war on pubic hair, and the downside of removing it.
Rather than suffering a comparison to a bristle brush, frequent hair removal is necessary to stay smooth, causing regular irritation of the shaved or waxed area. When that irritation is combined with the warm moist environment of the genitals, it becomes a happy culture medium for some of the nastiest of bacterial pathogens, namely Group A Streptococcus, Staphylococcus aureus and its recently mutated cousin methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus MRSA. There is an increase in staph boils and abscesses, necessitating incisions to drain the infection, resulting in scarring that can be ificant.

Waxing actually causes tiny tears in the skin. What they found is that shaving a body part prior to surgery actually increased, rather than decreased, surgical site infections.
This is no longer common practice. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, surgical site infections are a leading cause of complications among hospital patients, ing for nearly one out of five health care-associated infections and thousands of deaths annually. The reason, experts say, is that shaving with a razor blade causes microscopic nicks in the skin that can become bacterial breeding grounds. In its guidelines for preventing surgical site infections, the CDC recommends that hair not be removed unless it will interfere with the operation. When shaving is necessary, electrical clippers should be used.

Prior to the s, in America, photographs were not considered pornographic unless they showed genitals or pubic hair.

Dault writes that pornography has cultivated an image of the sexually attractive woman who is characterized by the absence of pubic hair. Porn changed everything. Despite the stigma of non-bare pubic regions in porn, certain feminist porn stars continue to keep the bush trend going.
Feminist writer Caitlin Moran addressed the trend of pubic hair removal in her book, How To Be A Woman , where the author considers total pubic hair removal absurd. In an interview with Salon. As an adult actress, being hairless was mandatory and for Stoya, who is half Serbian, thick hair is something she was genetically blessed with.
Stoya started shaving her vulva at a young age, and had difficulty with problematic razor burns that looked unhealthy. She stopped shaving in , and had laser hair removal that left her patches of hair sparse in some areas. Trimming it down or going bare is a personal choice. For men and women, the reasons vary.
Some do it for aesthetic reasons, some do it for hygienic reasons, while others attribute society, their circle of friends, their ificant others, and the porn industry. San Antonio College in Walnut, Calif. In , two doctors at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Texas published research based on the survey responses of 1, women 16 to 40 years old.
They found that just 8. The report also concluded that 77 percent of women who had ever groomed their pubic hair said they used a razor and shaving cream; followed by 23 percent who trimmed with scissors and 19 percent who used hair-removal cream.

FiveThirtyEight also looked at another paper published in , that studied 2, women. The study suggests that hair removal choices differ according to sexual orientation.
Lesbians were more likely than heterosexual women to have not removed any pubic hair in the past month and 14 percent of bisexual woman had not removed any. The were almost identical between single women and married women. Even men are starting to weigh on the pubic hair grooming habits of women.
