kiwimoogle84: The blanket statement applies though- she is paid to treat illness, not campaign for people to change personal habits.


Preventative care may involve changing personal habits. Do you think doctors shouldn't tell people to quit smoking or lose weight?

Harry Freakstorm: Anyone try that No No hair remover yet? While I would be interested in applying it above the equator, it seems suitable for the nether regions as well.

Just a-wondering.


It has 240 Amazon reviews of which 197 are 1-stars.

Irritates the hell out of my mound, causes abscesses from time to time, also makes things too sweaty and nasty feeling. The hair is there to wick sweat away, and as long as you bathe and shower every day, and trim with scissors, its fine. If we weren't SUPPOSED to have it, it wouldn't grow.

Theaetetus: meanmutton: Theaetetus: Earguy: Let's ask this doctor's husband what he would prefer.

You do realize that wives aren't considered chattel anymore, right?

/not to mention the fact that she could have a wife

It's weird that you think that one's sex partner's opinions regarding sex should be entirely ignored.

Also, she's married and has three children.

Sorry, Dan Cathy, but she could have children, be married in many places, and have a wife. Maybe you should go back to farking that chicken.


I don't even begin to understand the point that you're trying to make here. What does "...be married in many places..." even mean? She lives in the United States. There's no place in the United States where a woman can be simultaneously married to a man and a woman at the same time.

It's weird that you think that pointing out that someone is heterosexual is somehow homophobic. It's weird that you assume that she has some super-secret polyamorous relationship going on when there's much evidence to the contrary and zero evidence that it's happening. It's weird that you think that "the fact that she could have a wife" is a fact when it's factual that she can not have a wife anywhere in the United States because she's already married to a man.

No, I agree, this doctor shouldn't get Congress to pass a law banning personal grooming. Instead, she should just make her recommendation and let people decide on their own whether to follow it.

LaraAmber: Those portals close up pretty quick. I don't think people are walking out to the spa and announcing in the parking lot "I just got waxed, please god, someone fark me now!"


The boil this guy was describing was probably staph aureus, which he got from his own flora. The fact that it took a year to clear despite antibiotics suggests MRSA. So, if you want to risk MRSA infection near your penis, be my guest. Just don't call it hygiene, because that's simply not the case. Do yourself a favor and image google MRSA. Enjoy.

seadoo2006: I think in the last 5-6 years of 'manscaping', I've only really cut myself once or twice and that's only usually been on the inside of the legs ... You have to be going pretty crazy down there to do any damage with a modern face razor.


You get microscopic nicks. That's why the article mentioned surgeons dropping shaving incision sites. Shaving increases the risk of infection at the incision site because there are now hundreds of mini-infected shaving nicks in the area which harbor nasty bugs.

NeoBad: Actually if you read the report, the asshat doctor is saying, that Laser hair removal is safe in the hands of a skilled provider and he does not want people doing it themselves or having waxes as it takes away from her or her income. Bite me doc.


This. The article is skewed in the wrong direction, a lot of bullshiat and fearmongering masking overt greed. A lot of professionals love to use the "come to me so you don't hurt yourself" attitude.

/The proof is in the pudding, go GIS "unwaxed" vs "waxed". The only unwaxed anyone cares about now is paper.

LiberalEastCoastElitist: Mystery Vortex: I'd been shaving for about 15 years at that point, also never a problem up till then. New razors, clean water, always washed the area before. I was very clean and it still got me eventually, so do what you will.

Skin is colonized by bacteria. Even scrubbing off the dead skin flakes then treating it with alcohol or iodine so that it's 99.9% sterilized runs the risk of re-colonization by nasty bugs instead of innocuous bugs.

About 30% of people are colonized by staph aureus.
Staph aureus --> antibiotic resistance --> MRSA.

Creating hundreds or thousands of microscopic portals to infection is not "hygiene".

Pff, please. Even untrimmed and fully hairy, the pubes cover what, 5%, 10% at most? It's a relatively negligible difference.

Surprisingly cheap and effective tool for manscaping. Just make sure that if you're bothered by such things, keep a different blade head for the face and nether areas. The GF likes it trimmed, not shorn... and this thing does a good job of doing so.

I can look at a fully grown woman who shaved her beaver and see a fully grown woman with a shaved beaver. Not everyone who enjoys the feeling smooth skin is a pedophile.

This argument is just ridiculous.

I don't care what it looks like for her, only for me. If you could guarantee that I don't have to pick hair out of my mouth/teeth, then I'd let her have 70's era bush.

And despite shaving/trimming my pubes, I have yet to be confused with a 10 year old boy.

Mystery Vortex: kiwimoogle84: Mystery Vortex: To be fair, I did get an abscess from shaving once that lasted nearly a year even with antibiotics. I now trim close instead of shave. Don't want that again.

That's an exception, not a rule. Sucks to hear though. I've been waging war on my Greek heritage for more than a decade now and I've never had a problem, so I guess I should count myself fortunate?

I'd been shaving for about 15 years at that point, also never a problem up till then. New razors, clean water, always washed the area before. I was very clean and it still got me eventually, so do what you will.


Yeah, once I found a lump and was convinced I had groin cancer or something. Turned out it was from shaving and doing triathlons - I'd probably had a small cut somewhere and gotten lake water in it, causing an infection under the skin. Oh, and then I had an anaphylactic reaction to the antibiotics.

Doesn't the pube conversation HAVE to happen somewhere in relationship land - like somewhere before talking about moving in together (before or after marriage) but after the more common important things, like how weird your extended family is or whether your religious beliefs forbid you from premarital sex?

[Awjeeznotthisshiatagain.jpeg]

Desiring a 13-year-old girl with a bush = pedophilia
Desiring a 33-year-old woman with a smooth hoo-hah = not pedophilia

Thinking smooth vajayjay = pedophilia is thinking of a female as only as an object that exists as a collection of parts
So thanks for that

Irrelevant. If you don't have first hand knowledge of your partner's grooming pre-marriage, then little to no grooming is what you'll get.
If your pre-ring penetration is a no-no, then they will want to keep their genitals as covered as possible.

It's really not that bad - like you say it's just about being familiar with your own body. I shave myself down once or twice a week. So long as it doesn't get overgrown it's pretty easy to maintain.

If you are going to have fun with glitter, make sure it is the sexytime safe stuff. Getting hundreds of tiny glitter cuts is a great way to ruin the moment.

As for hair, I think it is like anything else - different styles suit different people. A few just don't look quite right with their chosen style. Oh and razor burn is never sexy, use the proper tools and do it right.

This is always the bullshiat about porn. "Oh, they only shave to look like 10 year old girls". Yeah, that's also why they have massive breast implants too. Oh, wait.

A shaved woman who is already aroused is showing off her arousal, and that's arousing for men. It's why a lot of men get a huge kick giving oral sex. Your brain sees and smells arousal far stronger than any other way.

And I fully agree with you. I had a "this won't happen to me" mentality before I got the infection, though, and I suspect some of the other commenters do as well.
