10 Important Moments In The History Of Pubic Hair

Pubic hair has been growing between our legs since … well, since we’ve existed. Currently en vogue for women, and the subject of much debate, is the hairless, or as-little-hair-down-there-as-possible, look. Whether you choose to go hairless or not, the bald below trend existed way before “Sex and the City.”

The ancient Egyptians considered pubic hair uncivilized and removed it with razors made of flint or bronze or by a practice still used today called sugaring. So, we should probably rename “the Brazilian” “the Egyptian.”

Click through to see some of the most significant moments in the history of pubic hair. Or lack thereof. [History Undressed]

When my life overwhelms me – which, as an introverted entrepreneur and mother, is often – I try to escape to the one place that I know no one will speak to me, The Korean Day Spa. I spend the entire day there, soaking, steaming, sweating, and watching the glorious variety of women move through this sacred space as the holy bodies that they are. Everyone is naked, as mandated by the spa itself. They come in all shapes, sizes, colors, styles, and when surrounded by them I truly feel as if I am part of something, some magic thing that needs no words or creed. The mere fact of our nipples and wrinkles and bulges, and the fact that we all look ridiculously bad in the little shower caps the spa makes us wear, is enough to refill my soul. If I were the platitude sort, some part of me would probably start singing, “I am woman, hear me roar,” but the rest of me would be all like “shut up, bitch,” and I would return to the silence that I so crave.

I have a confession to make: I’m 33-years-old and I still don’t know how to shave my legs. I mean, okay, I know how to shave my legs, but I don’t know how to shave my legs. Not in a way that doesn’t result in ingrown hairs, irritation, and ashy skin. I am really bad at it, and I have to do it all the time because I am eastern European and blessed (cursed) with thick, dark, coarse leg hair that grows with the speed and veracity of a toddler on HGH.

And that’s where you come in…

Summer is just around the corner! Hair removal season has begun! In our “Getting Smooth Survival Guide,” we’ll be testing out various ways to defuzz your body parts, if defuzzing is something you choose to do. (No judgement if you’re happily rocking body hair. Do you, girl.) 

I started shaving when I was 11. I’m from eastern European stock. We’re hairy. Anyhow, my mom gave me a basic lesson. Water, shaving cream, razor, try not to cut yourself. That was it. I guess I thought I’d get better at it, according to the Outliers principle. Nope. More than 20 years have passed and I still manage to leave my house each day with hairy kneecaps and little red bumps. How? “Silky smooth” is still an elusive concept to me. Maybe others of you have the same problem. In my mind, the rest of womankind has figured the whole shaving thing out and I’m the last woman denied entry to the silky smooth club. But, like anything that I intend to get better at, all that’s required is hard work and perseverance. I’m not sure how I can work harder at shaving, but I have asked around, trolled the interweb, and rounded up a few tips and tricks that will make shaving easier for me (and maybe you). Please, don’t make fun of me if you already knew these things. It just means you are a shaving goddesses. I bow down to you and your silky smooth legs. Keep reading »

Since I’ve literally got the sparsest eyebrows ever (they don’t grow, at all, I’ve tried), every four or five months I’ll decide that I need to go in for a threading session to clean up all the baby-fine, white-blond fuzz surrounding my brows. Because my body hair is very blond, it pretty much isn’t visible, so I mostly don’t bother to do anything about it. I consider myself lucky in that way—and what I don’t spend on waxes and constant facial hair upkeep I make up for with bi-monthly trips to my colorist — and the hefty bills that come with.

6 Ways We’re Shaving Our Legs Wrong

When it came to shaving my legs, the razor would always win the battle. Instead of walking out of my bathroom with clean, shaven limbs, I’d end up frustrated with all the unsightly gashes and leftover hair stubble.

According to Schick Quattro for Women Brand Manager Christine Galotti and Skintimate Brand Manager Alison Macneil, the tell–tale sign a woman is shaving her legs incorrectly is if she commonly gets razor burn or nicks and cuts. Guess all those race-car fast shavingmoves I made were swift and not so smart. Read more…

Toy companies have made it easy for Child Protect Services: just park at Toys ‘R Us near the slutty wolfwoman doll and snag whomever’s hand in the beartrap of poor decisions. Much like Barbie, Mattel‘s Monster High doll, Clawdeen Wolf, sports a lush head of hair, a fur-lined jacket, and the shortest of miniskirts. But it’s Clawdeen’s grooming habits that are questionable for little tykes. “My hair is worthy of a shampoo commercial, and that’s just what grows on my legs. Plucking and shaving is definitely a full-time job but that’s a small price to pay for being scarily fabulous!” trills the copy on Clawdeen’s box, which also mentions her pasttimes include “waxing, plucking and shaving.” Did I mention Clawdeen Wolf is for ages six and up? Just make sure to wipe the Nair off the pacifier before you pop in back in baby’s mouth, mommy.

Kelly Osbourne: Behind The Mustache

“I was the crash test dummy. The wax was so hot that it burned me. By the time she pulled the wax off, my skin went with it and I had to go to school with a scab mustache. Now I have a mustache that I have to wax that I blame my mom for!”

Kelly Osbourne explains to George Lopez why she blames her mama for the hair on her upper lip. But you all have had far worse hair removal stories, haven’t you? [People] Keep reading »

Facebook Ad For Pedophiles?

You know I love the Facebook. It’s how I keep in touch with friends from high school, post my sexiest/most drunken photos, and also apparently get solicited to make my crotch ready for a pedo … seriously, WTF is this?! When I saw this ad pop up on my personal profile page, my jaw dropped. Do I want to be hairless like a baby? Um, NO! Shudder. I’m going hippie from now on. Keep reading »
