Hair is one of the distinguishing characteristics of mammals, and it is there for a reason. Considering the advantages of body hair, precisely, pubic hair is important before you decide to take it off each time it grows. So, removing pubic hair everywhere, even in your genitals isn’t a wise decision. Understanding the purpose of hair down under will also help you take a stance in this Should Shave Vs Shouldn’t Shave dichotomy.
Reasons why removing your pubic hair is not a wise decision.
Removing pubic hair will not maintain the temperature of the private part
The reason why mammals are hairy is to save themselves from temperature shifts. Hair, apart from cushioning, also maintains a constant temperature. In cold countries, hair over there helps you keep the genitals warm and cozy. During heat, the glands in your pubic hair follicles secrete oily substances, which not only lubricate but also cool down the area. It simply regulates temperature and maintains the much-needed homeostasis.
Removing pubic hair causes friction
There is always the risk of friction in between legs, and it is added discomfort if you are a bit bulky. In fact, the pubes offer more lubrication than the empty ground could possibly offer. There is slightly more sweat produced, but that is only going to lessen the friction there.
Removing pubic hair will not protect the private part
The fundamental purpose served by hair is protection. The hair down under protects you from various kinds of bacterial & viral infections: 1. Your genitals are always moist, and this kind of environment can become a breeding ground for germs. That is exactly what pubes are for. They form a sheath and save your female part from unwanted pathogenic intervention. If you have been removing it off for “hygienic” reasons, this information should be an eye opener for you. It just needs some water and a mild soap to keep the area clean and not healthy. Not blades and wax strips. It also avoids physical impact. Pubes tend to work as shock absorbers and protect your female part when you indulge in activities like cycling or even horse riding. It reduces the chances of injury down there.
Pubes prevents skin irritation
Remember, women. You are using a blade on the skin. Though not apparent to the naked eye, every time you use the blade on your bush, you are naively causing microscopic cuts on the vaginal skin. These cuts get inflamed and increase the vulnerability of your already sensitive part. The repeated use of razors irritates the skin up to the extent that it gets itchy and uncomfortable.
Pubes makes a lot more Oomphalicious
Contrary to the accepted myth that removing the pubic hair makes you look sexy. While the matter of preference is something between you and your partner. Not many women confess, but it is an open truth that their partner’s sweat turns them on more than even the most seductive of perfumes. The pubic hair down under helps you sweat and with the sweat is produced these coquettish pheromones, and there lies all the oomph.
So, to have or not is now your decision.
Time has changed and lifestyle has changed too. Yet, some primal needs like acceptance from the opposite sex and mechanisms like temperature regulation have remained static and unchanged. Although during puberty and menstrual cycles, these wiry pubes cause slight discomfort, remember that in the long run, it is going to cause you more good than harm. It is time to break the taboos and the silence associated with pubic hair.
Ask yourself, “why do I remove my pubic hair, is it for aesthetics or does keeping them actually make me feel more comfortable and safe?”
