especially if you're uncircumcised.

Thanks Obama.

Whatever. Do a GIS for ' Demi Moore bush'. If that's the alternative it's worth the risk.

That's no laughing matter.  Several fraternity brothers of mine disappeared in that jungle!

One: correlation yadda yadda. People who have more sex probably groom more.

Two: razors, towels, and the like can all be disinfected.

Sorry, I should have noted that when you find that image it's NSFW.

Also, that reminds me. I need to renew my subscription to the CLJ (Cunning Linguist's Journal).

This is what happens when people share razors.

Yep. It's hard to believe many people are getting a full Brazilian in order to not show it to anybody.

So?

I'd rather slip on waxed hardwood floors than get lost in the bush.

Women need to be showing that kind of thing off more often... especially if it is well done

You'd think that, but you can spread MC by sitting in a hot tub or using gym equipment that your infected skin has touched. It's not exactly an STD, it's a viral skin infection aka "pox virus" that is more common among preschool children. It is extremely contagious (hence the "Contagiosum") and it can infect any part of the body by surface touch. Condoms are mostly useless unless the little buggers are on your pecker only (same applies for many strains of HPV, which spread through skin to skin contact in the general pubic region).

Okay, this story is a joke, it even says at the end "Brodell notes there is nothing inherent about pubic hair that protects people from MCV or STIs. "The hair itself is not a defensive barrier.""  So being a wookie isn't a defense either.

Speaking of, what is with all the hate lately, especially from the ladies, about waxing?  It's like unless a woman can lift her skirt and Erykha Badu's hair pops out she's a traitor to the sisterhood or something.
 
2013-03-19 10:27:44 AM  
Correlation.  Then again, the self infecting thing seems pretty true.  Too bad we've so badly farked up the pharmaceutical industry that they are no longer interested in trying to vaccinate against this kind of thing.

I haven't seen that.

I usually just see the occasional guy pretending he is ultra manly by comparing groomed lady parts to children, and then running and hiding when confronted with the fact that they don't like upper lip/underarm hair, receding hairlines, stretch marks, wrinkles, or any other sign of aging.

This story has me worked up.
 
2013-03-19 10:40:45 AM  
So basically what I'm getting out of this article is: shaving increases the risk of razor bumps.

Last time this subject came up I was reminded of Oscar Gamble in the early/mid 1970's. Time hasn't changed my opinion.

I mean I am old school and appreciate a good flossing while down there, but no way I would go down there on Demi unless I have a miners helmet and a scythe.

I've seen quite a few women say that shaving/waxing makes women look like children (with some shady ideas of what constitutes a child too, some women behave as though 13-20 == 3) and that liking a shaved vagina makes you a pedo.

Ya'll be careful out there, you hear?
 
2013-03-19 11:17:28 AM  
I guess this means that Brazilian waxing is a (*sunglasses*) "total rip-off." YYYYEEEEAAAAHHHH!!!1!

And I know several others - feminists, even - who are as bare as my bank account (and one who would be, but for an appendix scar she wants to hide). Are they lesbian pedos, or is it different because it's their ladybits?

// a girl I was banging and her roommate once went into incredible detail about the waxing process and salon
// apparently, the soothing butter they used after the wax smelled like coconut, so they admitted to getting turned on by the smell of it (smell associations are STRONG)

It's the time that depilating takes.  Women resent wasting time to please men.   Men resent time wasted not making sammiches or fetching beer.

I don't care what these people say. I must have a clean shaven kitty cat. I can't stand hair on my body. I think its disgusting. I remove all my body hair, and will continue until.... Well.... Forever as far as I'm concerned. I don't even get laid anymore, and I still keep it maintained.

I'm not pretending shiat and body hair (and other signs of adulthood and / or aging) on a woman doesn't bother me in the least. But, at least I'm not some mincing little wimp who screams like a little girl at the sight of pubes, like the lot of you hair-phobics. So sad. So pathetic. So utterly lame.

There's no envelope for the card to send back for renewal, but you still have to lick the flap.

shiat on women is a sign of adulthood or aging? Well, ok, I can see the aging part.

Honest question: What started your phobia/revulsion? I have an active revulsion for armpit hair on men and women. I find it gross and after seeing sweat drip off hairy pitts as a child I am just left with an afterimage and feeling of disgust with that part. The rest? Okay if someone's not a gorilla. Back and chest full of a forest? Yeah, not alright to me. Moderate hair? Okay. I have moderate hair and only shave pits and legs (when I'm not lazy or just want to). I found it weird to learn that women shave their arms.

The headline says waxing may increase the spread of this virus but the article only mentions how shaving may increase the spread. In fact, waxing isn't even mentioned after the second paragraph. Guess I'll keep my appointment to get waxed tomorrow.

/If I like my lady smooth as silk how can I not do the same for her?
 
2013-03-20 01:36:32 PM  
Maybe those who are more sexually open (thus are more likely to have multiple partners) tend to also be more open to being waxed?!

Correlation does not imply causation.
