Red face Public Hair Back In?

Just when you thought crabs were about to become extinct...From here:
Quote:
Publicly embracing pubic hair: so hot this year. Gwyneth Paltrow arguably started the trend (and kept it rolling), and Cameron Diaz was quick to back her up. American Apparel couldn't help but throw in its own two cents, and the media shouldered some of the responsibility by spawning thinkpiece after thinkpiece on the topic. (The New York Times found space for not one but two trend pieces, parsing the implications of a culture that champions pubic hair.)

Now that the dust has settled, the dare-not-to-go-bare movement has quietly worked its way down to a business level. Going completely bald isn't the norm anymore, and it's influencing hair removal companies in a tangible way.
So, Litizens, do we think this trend a reason for rejoicing or are we sad about it? And how will it affect our stories?

People who don't like hair will write it that way and people who do will do it their way.

I don't see anything changing except a group of older celebs are getting lazy.

I like it both ways so I write it that way. It depends on the woman/character in my story which way I write it. The wilder the character usually the less pubic hair I give them.

Technically, it's probably only classical until about twelve.

I like them both. I do find it interesting how porn has changed things like this.

Pubic hair is back? What great news! (Although a little trimming around the edges doesn't hurt.)

If that's "public hair", what on earth do you consider private?

Recently re-watched "The Wolf of Wall Street" on Netflix. There's a cute little scene where bush vs no bush is discussed. As for how it will change my stories? Don't know. I often am writing about multiple characters in group situations and will use pubic hair, shape, coloring as a way to tell the characters apart.

Mistakes happen when you touch type...didn't notice. And, darn it, titles can't be changed. Public hair it is.

I generally mention it only in contrasting one character against another, using it as an overall depiction of the personality of the character, or to help show a change that has come about in a character (and I use it then for both female and male characters.)

Personally, I wish more men were as concerned about their own pubic hair as they are with mine.

As a woman who has shaved and waxed and everything else for the last decade or so... All I can give is experience, and in this regard all that waxing, shaving and everything else simply makes the bush larger, and then it's a cyclical situation where you need to keep doing it because the bush just keeps spreading like weeds.

To younger girls, I say, don't bother going Barbie. Keep a nice lawn, but shaving will only create weeds.

This. Very much this. It's a pleasant surprised to find a man trim and tidy down there. Especially if they expect blow jobs, there's nothing worse than stray hairs interrupting matters...

I don't know if shaving or waxing makes it worse, or whether it just spreads as you get older anyway.

Reminds me of this charming rugby tune

Mayor of Bayswater's Daughter

The Mayor of Bayswater,
He has a lovely daughter,
And the hairs on her dicky-di-doe,
Hang down to her knees.

Leader: And the hairs,
Pack: And the hairs,
Leader: And the hairs,
Pack: And the hairs,
Leader: And the hairs,
Pack: On her dicky-di-doe,
Hang down to her knees.
One black one, one white one,
And one with a bit of shite on,
And the hairs on her dicky-di-doe,
Hang down to her knees.

I've smelt it, I've felt it,
It's just like a bit of velvet.

I could not believe my eyes,
When I peered down between her thighs.

If she were my daughter,
I'd have her cut them shorter.

I've seen it, I've seen it,
I've lain right in between it.

I stroked 'em and poked 'em,
I rolled 'em and smoked 'em.

You'd need a coal miner,
To find her vagina.

She lives on the mountain,
and pees like a bloody fountain.

She stayed on a cattle ranch,
And came like a bloody avalanche.

She says she is not a whore,
But she bangs like a shithouse door.

She lives on malted milkshake,
And roots like a bloody rattlesnake.

She married an Italian,
With balls like a fucking stallion.

She divorced the Italian,
And married the stallion.

She married a Spaniard,
With a prick like a bloody lanyard.

She divorced the Spaniard,
And ran off with the bloody lanyard.

She slept with a demon,
Who drowned her with semen.

The aroma it lingers,
It smells like fish fingers.

She sat on the waterfront,
With the waves lapping up and down her cunt.

I've licked it and kissed it,
It tastes like a chocolate biscuit.

You can drive a Morris Minor,
Right up her vagina.

It was always hit-or-miss,
Whether I could find her clitoris.

Her vagina was squishy,
And smelled a bit fishy . . .(ad infinitum)


Very charming.

This is actually true...

From time to time, I shoot model composites. For a long time now, when a model wanted nudes she was always waxed. The last couple I have shot, however, have had hair. A couple where well trimmed but the last one I shot had a full head-oops, pussy of hair. According to her, it was the up and coming trend.

Personally, I'm not crazy about picking hair out of my teeth.

Very charming.
Thank you.
It's the first time I have ever seen the words written down.
I think the tune is that old Victorian thing "the Ash Grove".

My late wife did no like to be shaved (said it itched a day or two later), but a neat trim would be just the thing, thank you. I was quite nervous about it.

Let us all sing!

Great song! Used to sing it around campfires with friends.
Never knew the title, though.

And after my man started trimming his pubes voluntarily, it's been just yummy. No more picking strays out of my teeth.

Huh. Thought I'd read that repeated waxing made the hair sparser and wispiness over time.

I'm uncertain what definition of classical you're using, since I'm unaware of any definition that might mean what you're talking about, but I'm referring to ancient Greece and Rome, like so: http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/images/h2/h2_52.11.5.jpg
