Opinions on pubic hair?

I've only ever tried to shave my pubes once and it went badly. Anyway, I'm a virgin and my boyfriend just told me that hair is not a turn on. Then he asked me if I shaved or anything down there and I just avoided the question. Ok so really how big of a deal is shaving? Is it a deal breaker or is it "meh" or is it like you love pubic hair. I doubt many people love it, but I'm sure there's someone out there so that'll be an option in the poll. What do you guys suggest I do? I always just figured I would go get waxed by the time I was about ready to lose my virginity, but it seems like that time is coming sooner than I think. I'm not feeling so confident, and waxing seems painful.

  • You have to do what you're confident with and what you want. I understand that you want to please your boyfriend but taking all the pubic hair off takes work ann if you're not that into it... it will just bother you.

    I personally take it all off, my boyfriend like it that way but most importantly, that's how I like it. Waxing is definitely the best but it can also be expensive. I personally can't do it all the time.
    You can shave (I I often do it) but you have to do it all the time. The growth is quick.
    The best is to use a shaving cream. At first shave in in the direction of hair growth. Then once it's done, you can go against it. Stretch your skin when you do so. With practice you'll find it way easier.

  • If a guy doesn't respect you enough to put your physical well being ahead of a *preference*, he's not good enough to have sex with you anyway. It's YOUR body so it's YOUR choice.

    • everyone, men and women, have preferences, and everyone should make some effort to meet their partners preferences. it is not a one way road. i would not ask her (not demand, ASK) her to do something i find appealing, and be unwilling to do something for her. i know it is not an equivalent, but look how many guys stay clean shaven, even if they like having a beard or mustache, because she hates it, and will refuse to kiss him, or in some extreme cases, even look at him or be seen with him, if he grows one. so guys appeal to her PREFERENCE and stay shaved.

    • @ksoma No. Men do not have the right to tell a woman she has to do bodily harm to herself and expose herself to diseases just for his selfish porn motivated preference. If you cannot grasp this simple idea, move along.

  • Any person who would make pubic hair a deal breaker has done you a big favor. If his or her thinking is like that imagine what other demands he would demand in the future?

    • love your name lol :P

    • i get where you are coming from, but guys are very visual creatures. no hair means we can see things better, and it looks cleaner and more appealing. things with no hair are easier too keep clean too. body hair (specifically pubic and underarm, in men and women) is made specifically to trap sweat. our BO actually has pheromones that are supposedly attractive to the opposite sex. in reality, it just makes us stink. lastly, it seems to me a guy is much more happy to go down a a trimmed/shaved/bald girl than a hairy one. in part because he doesn't want to pick hair out of his teeth lol. being bald is not a requirement, so long as she trims, but it is a nice treat. and i would be willing to reciprocate. if my body hair bothered her, that just means i get to experience the joys of waxing if it makes her happy.

  • The rest of the comments hit all the points that I would expect.

    I would just like to point out there is a cheaper and more comfortable option than waxing. There is such a thing as a shaver designed for pubic hair. They are available only on the internet.

    Personal shavers:

    - are designed for daily dry use (baby powder lubricated)
    - cause no nicks, cuts, rashes, or irritations
    - leave the skin as smooth as waxing
    - cost about the same as one or two waxings

    Get one here:

  • I personally prefer trimmed hair. Not shaved, not waxed, why would I expect those things? That seems like too much hassle.

    • It is! I really dislike it that girls are all about being empty like a bald head... That's just ridiculous and immature.

  • I would never consider it a deal breaker. I would prefer lesser hair down there, but it does not mean I'm turned off by more hair. It's a non-issue for me, as long as we love each other and are compatible in other ways.

  • I find completely shaved to be a big turn on.
    that said, i am fully aware of what a pain in the ass that is.
    My advice would be to trim it down as much as possible. that would likely be good enough for him, and isn't actually hair removal.

    if you want hair removal? I would think (but i do not actually know!) that trimming down as low as possible, and then waxing, would be the best bet. no risk of cuts, no razor burn, and by pulling out at the root, it should grow back very slowly.
    not that waxing sounds fun, but if you wax other places, i'm sure it's a sensation you can tolerate.

  • not a deal breaker no. But I did realize just how much I don't like it anymore in my last relationship. She didn't shave at all even though she knew I wanted it at least shaved as low as she could get it. I prefer no hair at all. that is best for all aspects

  • I would at least trim them down, especially if you want to receive oral.

  • Most guys feelings about pubic hair come from watching too much porn. It doesn't matter to me how a girl keeps her pubic hair. It's completely up to her and I like "the look" either way. Shaving can be a hassle and leads to razor burn and bumps and what not. So I don't think it's something girls feel like they have to do.

  • It should be YOUR choice not his. If a guy doesn't want to accept your preferences then he's not good enough for you. Personally, since I was 17 I've been shaving it. At first I was just kinda curious but now I feel way better if I keep up with it and shave

  • Pubic hair is just hair. Clean it, keep it trimmed, and you should be a ok.

  • I don't really care either way. I find it sexy if its not bald but manicured.

  • Waxing is really painful. Just wait. Just because your boyfriend is ready doesn't mean you are.

  • Overall it doesn't matter to me, it's neither a turn on or turn off. The only thing is that giving oral stimulation is MUCH more enjoyable if the other person doesn't have much or any hair down there. Hair in my mouth feels kinda gross. Any other acts are equally enjoyable either way. Other people may feel differently though.

  • It's not a deal breaker. But shaven and trimmed is clean and ok. Too much bush is okay if kwpt clwa but prefer shaven or trimmed

  • I guess I'd be a meh. Any women who let me see that area, I'm just going to be thankful for that much!

    I think I like the visual appeal of hair. Shows you are a grown up. On the other hand, shorn works a lot better for oral sex.

    So both have their good points.

    Maybe just try to be open with your boyfriend, and share your concerns with him?

  • It's there it's no big deal if it's not a jungle

  • Just go with what you're more comfortable doing , I should say a nice trim might work but it's up to you.
    Me personally I like pubic hair on a woman.
    It's sexy, a turn on and a sign of maturity.
    I like it natural or trimmed but I respect a woman's decision on how she grooms herself since it's her body.

  • I absolutely love it when it is perfectly smooth. So feminine and yummy. Also easier to penetrate without the hair in the way.

  • I don't have any problems with pubes... you can trim them with a trimming machine, it doesn't hurt the skin. I do the same...

  • I'd rather a girl be shaven, but I really don't blame you for not wanting to. I've never shaved down there for fear of cutting something.

  • hair, bald, strip... all look delicious to me!

  • If a girl wants me to commit to her, she has to commit to waxing, period.

  • shave... or get hair removal cream.. follow instructions.. just saying..
