I just wouldn’t be Betty Fokker if I didn’t keep y’all updated with the latest information about your ladybusiness. I have been railing for years now about the creeping (and creepy) social pressure to make the Special Bits look “just so”. Even if women decide not to have drastic cosmetic surgery on their privates, or have their assholes bleached, they are still ‘required’ to do some serious grooming or they are tacitly assured men will point at their Bearded Clam in horror and flee with disgust. Women are discouraged from having pubic hair, or no more hair than a Victorian man’s mustache at the most, lest they repulse men.
I maintain that a guy who is afraid of pubic hair on a woman has watched too much porn and is going to be wretched in bed because he’ll think foreplay-free instant orgasms are what women ‘normally’ do. Also, the look of your Bandersnatch has no bearing on performance. You don’t have to vajazzle to dazzle, ladies.
Now there is medical evidence to back up my assertions that not only does your body not have to be bald to be beautiful, it can actually reduce you health and attractiveness. Dr. Emily Gibson wrote an article that was reposted at Alternet about the risks of being bare down there, and it pointed out (among other things) that:
“Long ago surgeons figured out that shaving a body part prior to surgery actually increased rather than decreased surgical site infections … Pubic hair removal naturally irritates and inflames the hair follicles left behind, leaving microscopic open wounds. 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 media for some of the nastiest of bacterial pathogens, namely group A streptococcus, staphylococcus aureus and its recently mutated cousin methicillin resistant staph aureus (MRSA). There is an increase in staph boils and abscesses, necessitating incisions to drain the infection, resulting in scarring that can be significant. It is not at all unusual to find pustules and other hair follicle inflammation papules on shaved genitals. Additionally, [doctors have] seen cellulitis (soft tissue bacterial infection without abscess) of the scrotum, labia and penis from spread of bacteria from shaving or from sexual contact with strep or staph bacteria from a partner’s skin. “
Yes, there is nothing quite like inflamed papules, boils, and MRSA to make the Cooter or Manroot lovely.
