Sometimes a gal wakes up and realizes she has a specialty in life. In the journalism world, they call that a “beat.” And apparently, weird panties are my beat. Last week, I told you about panties with built-in liners which ensure your period — even when menstrual blood is leaking in your drawers — is a sexy time. Today, I am all about underwear which allow you to test out a new pubic hair design before having it ripped out from the root by your trusted waxer. Trim & Proper panties are basic nude cotton panties with little, suggestive pubic hair designs on the front. Also, according to the About Us page, these panties “cover mishaps, misshapes and outright neglect,” which I guess is why they’re nude-colored? So that from far away you look naked and well-groomed? But to whom? Peeping Toms? I am confused. But at least these are cheaper than the panties that soak up your period leakage. [$16, Trim & Proper] Keep reading »
“It’s a modern day version of Rapunzel. It’s this hot chick that lives in a castle, but oddly enough it’s her pubic hair that she, uh, that she lets out the window. Kind of strange.”
—A word to the wise for Brad Garrett, the “Everybody Loves Raymond” star who does the voice of character Hook Hand Thug in Disney’s new flick, “Tangled.” When one is promoting a Disney movie, it is best not to talk about pubic hair when doing radio interviews. [NY Post] Keep reading »
An interesting article out of Psychology Today about the fairly recent trend of bikini waxing and how it’s affecting male and female sexual relations. Sex therapist and psychiatrist Stephen Snyder, M.D. writes, “Among many young men that I see in treatment, the sight of a woman’s pubic hair produces the same revulsion that in my day might have greeted the sight of her armpit hair. Vulvar hair is regarded as unsightly — or even disgusting.” Yowza, seriously? I mean, in my years cavorting and conversating with the opposite sex, I have definitely noticed that dudes prefer some pubic grooming, with a solid percentage liking significant bush-wacking (landing strip, little triangle, etc.). Yes, there have definitely been a few dudes who liked a bald beav the most, but Snyder implies that men are increasingly preferring no hair whatsoever and find the presence of hair to be a complete turn-off. Please, gentleman readers of The Frisky, tell me you haven’t been so brainwashed by porn that you’re actually grossed out by pubes?
But Snyder also says that many women say the opinions of men aren’t why they spend upwards of $75 per session to have hot wax spread on their ladyparts. “‘You’re missing the point,’ say the waxing enthusiasts. ‘We do it because the result is worth it. Better sensation. Better sex.’” Keep reading »
Oh, science, we love you! Why? Because some bunch of pervy scientists decided that studying the pubic hair-grooming habits of women was somehow a viable scientific pursuit. A new study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine examined the pubic particulars of women. The findings: “Women reported a diverse range of pubic hair-grooming practices.” No duh. Keep reading »
Lately, we’ve been waxing philosophically, ahem, about pubic hair grooming and it’s time for me to throw in my two cents. About a week after Jessica wrote about her first bikini wax — after being the proud owner of a ’70s-style bush — I went in for my first wax, but unlike Jessica, I was committing myself to the full shebang.

“Sasha Grey Sparks Bush Backlash”! That was the headline for the always-astute Tracy Clark-Flory’s Broadsheet post on porn star Sasha Grey getting totally naked on the latest episode of HBO’s “Entourage.” Of course, in this day and age, the nudity itself wasn’t shocking. (After all, at this point, who hasn’t seen Grey nude?) It was her pubic hair that became the hirsuite cause célèbre. Keep reading »
