Removing pubic hair is a cosmetic choice that may have health consequences for some women. Before we get started we need to get one fact straight — pubic hair is on your vulva the outside, where your clothes touch your skin not your vagina, which is internal or at the vaginal opening think of the places you touch when reaching inside for a rogue tampon. Pubic hair serves several biological purposes. It is a physical barrier protecting the skin; it traps discharge, dirt and debris; it also traps moisture, helping the vulvar skin maintain a higher moisture content relative to skin elsewhere on your body. As each pubic hair is attached to a nerve, tugging during sex may also increase sexual stimulation. Pubic hair may also have a role in dispersal of normal odors. Pubic hair removal is common — approximately 80 percent of women ages 18 to 65 report they remove some or all of their pubic hair.
But although the concept of "manscaping" has become popular enough to spawn its own catchy name, a new survey found that men still expect more from their partners when it comes to grooming down below. The survey of 4, respondents ages 18 to 35, drawn from Cosmopolitan. According to the survey, 40 percent of men have asked their partners to change their pubic hair, compared to only 23 percent of women. When asked why they prefer a partner with little or no pubic hair, most men said they just like the way it looks. The result is that women groom more frequently — and spend more money on grooming — than men.
