Silly Questions: What Would Your Personalized Pubic Hairstyle Look Like?

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…

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…

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…

Rihanna Sings While Getting Her Vagina Waxed, Loves The Pain

Although my waxer tells me BS stories about women who read magazines and talk on the phone while getting their vaginas waxed (who are you!?), I believe most of us find the process appropriately painful. I use numbing spray and Advil and still, I sweat and occasionally tear up. You’ll see no such pansy assery…

5 Uncomfortable Moments I’ve Shared With My Waxer

I’ve been going to the same vagina waxer for almost six years now. When you tell people that you wax down there, often their first question is: Isn’t that awkward to have someone all up in your vagina like that? The answer is no. Good waxers make you feel like your vagina is disinteresting. Or…

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…

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…

True Story: I Didn’t Shave For Two Months And Lived To Tell About It

The open joke in The Frisky offices is that while everyone else gets Brazilian waxes, I’m the proud queen of an au naturelle bush. I love my pubic hair — it makes me feel grownup and womanly and not like one of those gross hairless cats. I always trim a little bit, but that’s the extent…

PETA Hits New Low With Joanna Krupa “Fur Trim” Pubic Hair Ad

This ad from PETA is all kinds of disturbing and not just because it further promotes the idea that pubic hair is “unattractive” and a woman has to spend $$$ to trim and wax. No, PETA, this ad really looks like Joanna Krupa has the Lorax down there in her skivvies. Just ridiculous. [via Amanda Palmer]…

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…

Tween Waxing Makes Me Uncomfortable (And I Was A Hairy Tween, Too)

Many moons ago, when I went to summer camp, getting ready for the excursion meant a trip to Marshall’s for a new swimsuit. If the New York Times Style section is to be believed (which I am not saying it is: honestly, sometimes this shit is unbelievable) some tweens and teens prep for camp more…
