This weekend, when I was in Atlantic City, one of my fellow ragers asked me if she could borrow my tweezers so she could pluck a nipple hair. A nipple hair? She had nipple hair? “Yeah, don’t you?” I honestly didn’t know. She also said she waxed above her lip. Crap, I’ve never waxed my lip. Have I been walking around with a ‘stache for years and no one has ever told me and that’s why I can’t get a rebound to save my life right now?!
On last nights episode of “The Hills” the female ‘stache came back to haunt me — Lauren Conrad had a very obvious dusting of facial fuzz about her lip. If Lauren Conrad has a mustache I must have it too. This morning, the grooming obsession continued when I discovered a horrendous ingrown hair bump, um, you know where. Eww. Maybe I should start listening to the lady mags and actually wax from now on. Especially since I am about to jump back into the dating pool — with that in mind, I decided to ask the dudes on my IM about what they look for, grooming-wise, in a bed mate. I didn’t tell them about my ingrown hair though. I’m hoping it’s gone by the time I sleep with any of them. Keep reading »
After yesterday’s “Men’s Summer Fashion Trends We Hate” slideshow, I was reading Us Weekly and came across one I didn’t even know about. “I wax my privates,” says Sean “Diddy” Combs. As in BALD. Beyonce’s beloved, Jay-Z, also goes for the hairless look. A representative for the Pink Cheeks Salon in L.A. says, “Sexually, you can’t beat it.” Yikes, really? I’ve heard of guys trimming their area significantly because it makes their weens look bigger, but I don’t think I could handle a totally hairless groin. It’s too gay porn star for my taste. What do you ladies think — guys going bald below the belt, yay or nay? Keep reading »
I have never had a bikini wax. Something about it scares me. The only people I allow near my vagina is the boyfriend and my gyno and unless one of them decides on a second career, I probably will never have one. Or so I have always thought. Lately I have been considering giving the ol’ wax a try, if I can muster up the patience and itch-resistance to grow out what hair my pathetic attempts at shaving have removed. But before I do so, I am curious: how are your pubes maintained? Keep reading »
Do guys REALLY care if you aren’t waxed or shaved down there? — Razor Ready, Virginia Beach, VA
I think women’s vaginas are like men’s faces. You’ve basically got three options: The clean-shaven, the week’s worth of stubble, or the mountain-man variety. At the end of the day, it’s all about preference. You might like your man with a baby-smooth face. He might want you to look like a tumble weed and call him mommy during sex. The bottom line is, everybody is different.
Whatever option you go with, I think it’s safe to say your landscaping habits are not going to prevent guys from having sex with you. As long as a guy doesn’t need a degree in bushwhacking to date you, I’m pretty sure you’ll get lucky.

The most hilarious moment in the Sex and the City movie trailer is the moment that Samantha comments that Miranda is growing a natural forest along her bikini line. Miranda replies, “When you’re married, you have a different set of priorities.” That is so true, and I am not even married yet. Waxing scares me, so I’m a shaver, but I have to admit that my artistry with the blade leaves much to be desired. My man doesn’t seem to mind, but then again, after four years, it’s a little too late to complain. So I decided to ask some of the other guys on my IM what their preference is for her hair down there. After the jump, The Music Nerd, The Hipster Guy, and The Sensitive Guy give their opinions.
