Most people would want to take off all their pubic hair because it actually makes them comfortable with their sex partners and it is believed that they are cleaner such way.
However, shaving your pubic hair might not really be such a good idea as it has some adverse consequences and also, nature put it there for a purpose.
Here’s why you shouldn’t shave your pubic hair:
1. It irritates the pubic area
According to Dr. Emily Gibson, shaving the pubic hair leaves microscopic open wounds, so that when there are wounds in that area, bacteria would grow and multiply because it is a naturally moist area and a perfect culture for them.
Pubic hair actually protects the vagina from dirt and other pathogens that are in the environment, that is why humans evolved with hair in their pubic region.
The sebum the hair follicle produces, also helps to protect the pubic region.
3. Pubic hair makes sex better
Although a shaved pubic area is visually attractive, it does not make sex better. It might even give scars and abrasions from skin-to-skin contact. Pubic hair is known as a dry lubricant.
However, if you must shave, then do the following:
Disinfect the shaving stick
Wash the pubic area first
Always make sure the area is wet
Use a mirror to see what you are doing so as to avoid cutting yourself
Avoid wearing tight clothes after shaving.
