According to NYMag.com’s exploration of what’s hot in hair down there, the latest pubic hairstyle trending for Brooklyn-ite Hippie girls “with porny sex lives, who need to be hairless for licking,” is the “full-bush Brazilian.” You’re probably wondering what the hell that is, because it sounds like an oxymoron. Brazilian bikini wax = hairless, full bush = lots of hair, so, the math seems off.

The full-bush Brazilian is defined as a wax job which includes “removing the hair from the labia and butt crack (in accordance with Brazilian-waxing tradition) while leaving everything on top fully grown.”  A “pubic reverse mullet”: party up top, business at the bottom. The vaginal version of “having it all.” The “normcore of pubes.” Keep reading »

Valentine’s Day Gift From Hell: Period Blood And Pubic Hair Chocolates

In Japan, the women don’t mess around on Valentine’s Day. They give handmade chocolates known honmei choco, or true feelings chocolate, to the boy they want to be their Valentine. How artisan. But not so sanitary considering that some girls to add secret ingredients to their confections: period blood, spit or pubic hair.  A “spell” trending on Twitter suggests that this year, girls “mix [their] blood” or other DNA-rich ingredients “into the Valentine’s Day chocolates” to ensure that their “love will be returned.” OH YUMMY. Japan Crush did us the great favor of translating some of the honmei choco “spell” tweets. After the jump, some baking confessions that just might put you off chocolate forever. Keep reading »

When I saw that today’s New York Times Style section has yet another article about the return of pubic hair, I sighed with annoyance. Must we? Again? Seriously, I do not really actually care what any of you do with your pubes. You do you, hairy or not. But there was one delightful tidbit that stuck out in the piece:

For the last six years, Alexis Steinman, 37, a costumer in Seattle, has been getting a wax of her own design, which she calls “the Alexis”: a full front and bare everywhere else. “I have been ridiculed by many waxers, but having no hair, you look like a stripper or a kid,” Ms. Steinman said. “Neither one of those things are what I’m aspiring as a woman to resemble.”

First of all, it takes a real special kind of asshole to “ridicule” a paying customer for how they want their damn pubic hair to look. Just be quiet and rip the hair out like I told you, okay? Anyway, I admire Steinmen’s decision to think outside the box when it comes to her box’s hair and was inspired to consider how a pubic hairstyle named after me might look. And I asked the rest of the The Frisky gals the same thing, using their answers to have a little stupid fun with Photoshop… Keep reading »

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 courting your sexiness” and warned laser fans that “all fads change, people.” It seemed like brain junk food — celebrity + sexy body part = pageviews! Instead, she seems to have incited a domino effect.

We’re only three weeks into January and here is most of the press coverage pubic hair has gotten this year. UK’s Guardian declared 2014 “the year of the bush.”  Then an American Apparel store mannequin had pubic hair peeking out of her undies. YourTango wrote that pubes are “making a comeback.”  The Wire declared “The Pubic Hair Renaissance Is Here.” Dame Magazine quipped “more and more women are letting their gardens grow.” Gaby Hoffmann’s character sprouted an enormous bush on the most recent episode of “Girls.” And now the fashion blog Styleite has an interview with a gynecologist about “the health benefits of bush.”

The tone of most of this coverage is a new twist in the fad of public hair styling: women who keep their pubes intact, or are “pro-bush.” What’s next, being “pro-eyelashes”? “Pro-elbows”? Keep reading »

Look, American Apparel has done something I actually like! No, not that ridiculous nerd glasses/high-waisted panties/knee socks outfit — I’m talking about the hairy bush poking through the edges of the panties. A reader of the blog Gothamist spotted this ode to the ’70s-era bush on a mannequin in one of AA’s New York City stores. OK, the mannequin would still be 92 lbs. soaking wet, but that’s what my dark-haired friends and I look like down there and it’s really NBD. Sorry, professional waxers! I wonder if this means AA is selling merkins down. Do they come in hot pink? [Gothamist] [Image via Gothamist]

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.

Pubic hair trends change so quickly, our vaginas can barely keep up. It’s like you’ve finally working up the nerve to stop shaving and start waxing her bald and the next thing you know there’s a celeb who goes public about how she prefers feathers and rhinestones down there. All these mixed messages about your pubic hair might leave you naked, in the shower, razor in hand, shouting WHICH ONE IS IT, WORLD? HOW DO YOU WANT MY VAGINA LOOK? Because as you know, your pubic hairdo is all about public opinion, popular trends and what the people who sleep with you think and not about what YOU want. A new poll conducted by an online pharmacy in the UK (so, not a very scientifically reliable one) found that (surprise!) there has been yet another shift in pubic styling.  Au natural, full bush is in, but not for the reasons you might expect.

On her first day of training at the European Wax Center in Wexford, PA, certified aesthetician Jennifer Finley claims she was required to perform a Brazilian bikini wax on a coworker and to have one done on herself. When Finley refused to participate in the pubic hair removal, unlike the other trainees, she was let go on the spot by the store’s owner.

“I was more than shocked. I was humiliated. I felt what they were doing was illegal. It was very embarrassing,” Finley said of the experience. Keep reading »

If you watch HBO’s tit-laden nigh-incoherent castle-intrigue juggernaut “Game of Thrones “(or as I like to call it, “The Peter Dinklage Show”) you’ll remember that a couple weeks ago there was an episode with a scene involving two prostitutes.

HAHA, JUST KIDDING, THAT’S EVERY EPISODE. That doesn’t help distinguish them at all. Anyway, just trust me, there were two prostitutes and they get naked — because really that is what 80 percent of the women in this series are there for — and I couldn’t help but notice that their, uh, ladygardens were shockingly well maintained. Like meticulously trimmed topiaries. So much so that it distracted me right out of the scene. Keep reading »
