Pubic hair is a biological sign that you’re “open for business” or ripe for a mate; it is also a floral bouquet dipped in pheromones that gives you a unique odor that drives your man nut’s over you.
The shaving the pubic hair is an age old practice that is popular for numerous reasons. Some ladies do it for hygiene reasons, others do it for the sex appeal while others do it just because everyone else is doing it. whichever your reasons are, you should probably reconsider glooming down there after you have read the following Reasons You Should Not Shave Your VaJayJay.
Research indicates that up to 60% of women shave their pubic hair mainly for hygiene purposes and for the sex appeal.

So is grooming your pubic hair hygienic? According to the clinical research, the answer is absolutely not! This is a big misconception that may cause you more harm than good.
I will not dispute the sex appeal aspect because this trickles down to the individual level. The mass media is already dictating how we should look, talk, dress, date… it should not come as a surprise to find out that the media is already influencing your vaJayJay’s glooming habits.
Furthermore, how else can a lady wear that sexy lingerie without the unpleasant pubic hair unceremoniously popping out?
Reasons you should not shave your vaJayJay
1. It is a biological sign that you’re “open for business” or ripe for a mate
Since the early years of human evolution, pubic hair served as a visual identifier for maturity and that a person is ready to mate. You can think of the dense bush as a sort of “visual target.”
Picture this— an airline pilot who wants to land at Harrisburg airport will see the big letter “H” on a hill and know he’s near the airport? Similarly, your pubic hair acts at the big letter “H” to signal the ‘landing spot’.
2. The pubic hair is a floral bouquet dipped in pheromones.
Scientists are yet to fully figure out why humans have pubic hair. However, just because they have not yet figured it out, it doesn’t mean that it is useless. Evidence shows that the pubic region has sweat glands that secrete pheromones that not only attract mates but also stimulates your partner’s sexual desire and appeal towards you.
The pubic hairs traps these pheromones giving each woman a unique odor making it a floral bouquet that stimulates your man’s sexual senses driving him nuts over you. Shaving of hairs in this region means that you lack that unique order to stimulate your partner’s raw sense of smell that leads to heightened arousal.
3. Acts as a natural barrier
The pubic hair acts as natural barrier and cushion for the delicate skin around the vaginal area from friction especially from rough clothing such as denim. It also prevents foreign elements such as pathogenic bacteria, viruses and dust from entering the body, thus reducing the risk of infections.
4. Shaving can result to injuries and cause irritation
Shaving of the pubic hair often causes microscopic open wounds that may increase the chances of infections, itching, irritation and scarring. According to Dr Mackay, “the tiny wounds” left by shaving, along with the warm and moist genital area, creates a “happy culture medium” for bacteria to growth.”
5. Increased risk of infections and contracting STD’s
The pubic hair also regulates the amount of moisture in the region thus minimizing the chances of yeast infections and other complications such as vulvar and vaginal infections, lacerations, abscesses, allergic reactions, and inflammation of the hair follicles.
Finally, though pubic hair does not completely prevent contraction of STD’s, it minimizes skin on skin contact thus significantly reducing the risks of infection.
What should I do about it?
It is unfortunate that it always seems that we have to sacrifice all the good things in our life for health reasons. Like ‘don’t eat fries you will grow fat’, ‘don’t take alcohol it will kill you,’ ‘don’t take sugars, you will get diabetes,’… to an extent you feel like you do not need another ‘don’t’ added in your life.

Confessions of A Hairy Girl
This should be a story for another day, but now that I have mentioned it, I will give you a little taste of it. I am fortunate to have a very privileged life, which means I get to spend a lot of my time thinking and talking about things which aren’t very important.
This is how I got this astounding confession from a lady.
These were her exact words, “I never shave down there and I never do panties, coz I have enough cushion”…
…though am disappointed with the hair that grows on my head; it is just pathetic… but you should see the hair that grows down there; it is always long, curly, dark and soft. I just wish that the two could trade places…
“…I don’t shave it…I just keep it like a trophy, to remind myself that I have great hair though in the wrong place…”
I bet she’s not alone!
