Frisky Rant: “Pro-Bush” Is The Stupidest Phrase To Describe Women With Pubic Hair

When Cameron Diaz came out against laser hair removal and waxing pubic hair, I thought she was drawing attention to her new book, The Body Book, and pube talk would disappear in a 24-hour news cycle. She called a lady’s bush “a pretty draping that makes it a little mysterious to the one who might be…

Pubic Hairstyles Throughout The Ages: Playboy South Africa Fondly Looks Back

I’m a fan of referring to pubic hair sans styling as “fur pie,” because it makes everyone in The Frisky offices squeal for some reason.

If a woman is waxing off her…

What The Hell Is A “Vagina Facial”?

I know what you’re thinking and it’s not that, you perv. A vagina facial — or a “vagacial,” as it’s called — is a post-waxing treatment at the Script Wax Bar in San Francisco available to women one week after they’ve gotten a Brazilian.
