Cameron Diaz Shares Her Detailed Thoughts "In Praise Of Pubes"

Did you hear? Cameron Diaz is now a published author! The actress released her first book, a health guide called The Body Book, on December 31. I have no idea what Cam’s thoughts are on healthy living and if you had asked me if I cared, oh, yesterday, I would have yawned and told you no. But then I read that Diaz has an essay in The Body Book called “In Praise of Pubes,” and I was like, “Cameron Diaz, how did you know I can’t resist reading a celeb’s views on short-and-curlies?” According to Radar Online, Cameron has much to say about pubic hair, namely that she thinks going permanently hairless down there via laser treatments is a bad idea.

I hear that there’s a big fad these days of young women undergoing laser hair removal on all of their lady bit. … Personally, I think permanent laser hair removal sounds like a crazy idea. Forever? I know you may think you’ll be wearing the same style of shoes forever and the same style of jeans forever, but you won’t. The idea that vaginas are preferable in a hairless state is a pretty recent phenomenon, and all fads change, people.

This has always been my reason for not going completely and permanently bare. For a couple years, I regularly waxed all my pubes off, but always turned down the beautician’s suggestion that I consider getting laser hair removal. I mean, imagine if that wedge haircut I got in 9th grade never grew out? How tragic would that be? Pubic hair, or lack thereof, is not as visible of course, but ever since I ended up with two Chinese characters tattooed on my back that roughly translate to “masturbation” (true story!), I’ve steered clear of making incredibly permanent cosmetic changes to my body. Shallow or not, regret sucks. But that’s just me.

But Diaz is not done waxing on about waxing off. She writes:

Pubic hair also serves as a pretty draping that makes it a little mysterious to the one who might be courting your sexiness. Pubes keep the goods private, which can entice a lover to come and take a closer look at what you have to offer. Also, let’s be honest: just like every other part of your body, your labia major is not immune to gravity. Do you really want a hairless vagina for the rest of your life? … It’s a personal decision, but I’m just putting it out there: Consider leaving your vagina fully dressed, ladies. Twenty years from now, you will still want to be presenting it to someone special, and it would be nice to let him or her unwrap it like the gift that it is.

As someone whose labia has never been immune to gravity (shout out to my fellow women with long labia!), one of the things I liked the most about having all my hair waxed off was finally getting a good look at all my business. I mean, you can realllllllly see it when all that hair is out of the way. And you know what? It wasn’t bad. It was fine. It seems like Diaz is suggesting that someday, even the tightest, prettiest vagina is going to get ugly and having hair down there will keep that mess hidden. I don’t think that’s an especially healthy message to send to women, who have already been led to believe their vaginas have to look/smell/feel a certain way. While advocating on behalf of full bush is a welcome balance to all the bald pussy propaganda, arguing that it’ll hide your vagina’s unavoidable future droopiness is not my favorite tactic.

As for the vagina being a gift that is at its peak sex appeal with the added mystery of pubic hair? Oh please. While there may be men who have pubic hair preferences, I’m just putting this out there: a person worthy of being intimate with will always consider it a pleasure to “unwrap” your pussy, be it hairless, bushy, or somewhere in between.
