Girl Talk: What I Learned At An Orgy

I didn’t physically prepare for my first orgy. My husband and I talked about boundaries and asked the friends who invited us about party etiquette. But I didn’t put much thought into what I looked like because I wasn’t planning to do a whole lot. I wanted to meet people, maybe kiss and fondle a…

The One Good Thing About Bikini Waxing

I'm taking a cue from Jodie Foster's Golden Globes speech and outing myself: I'm a bikini waxer. I've been waxing regularly since 2001. But that doesn't mean I've gotten used to it. I'm not going to pretend like it's no biggie. After more than a decade, I still think it hurts like a motherfucker. I…

Vice Presents Fashion Merkins (NSFW)

Leave it to Vice to attempt to make the merkin a high fashion accessory. Because, it's not about what's going on over your pants, it's about what's going on under them.

It’s Decembeaver, Grow Your Bush For A Cause

You might have felt excluded by Movember (or not). Well, that's over now. Goodbye Movember, hello Decembeaver, a month when women can stop shaving their muffs for cancer. Some comedians got together and started their own campaign to go all "Bob Ross" down there. And while it appears to be a Movember spoof ("If you…

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…

Florida Woman Did Not Enjoy Her Pubic Hair Tamale

While dining at a local Mexican joint, a Florida woman was not pleased when she accidentally ate a pubic hair. Julie Mraz received a 50th birthday gift she wasn't expecting when, much to her disgust, she bit into her tamale and swallowed a mouthful of pubic hair. "I don't mean to be graphic but it…

The Soapbox: Why I Don’t Have Pubic Hair

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…

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. Maybe from now on I'll just say "1962" and hope everyone gets my pubic drift. If they watch this clever Playboy South Africa video about how ladies have styled their pubic…

Girl Talk: Why I’ve Never Been Waxed

I am the only woman in NYC who has never gotten waxed. This is a fact. If someone collected statistics, the numbers would definitely confirm it. You could say I'm a bit of a wild woman. My hair is unpredictable, my nail polish is usually mostly chipped off, I can't do a pantsuit to save…

The Soapbox: Why I’m Keeping My Pubic Hair

When pubic hair first appeared on my adolescent body, I was mortified. I wanted it gone as quickly as it sprouted. It just felt, for lack of a better word, bizarre to have it there. But at the age of 11, waxing was not option. Well, maybe it is nowadays, but in the late '80s,…

30 Unapproved Names For A Woman’s Bush

There's no eloquent way to talk about bush, or for those of you who prefer to be anatomically correct, pubic hair. But some terms for ladies' pubic regions are far more inappropriate than others.

Panties That Make Your Pubic Area Appear Well-Groomed

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.

“Tangled” Voice Actor Makes An Unfortunate Pubic Hair Joke

"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…

To Wax Or Not to Wax: Study Examines Hairy Trends

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.

Girl Talk: I Went To Brazil And I’m Never Coming Back

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…
