It’s funny how social expectations change over the course of time. Think about it, thirty years ago we had the flick and the mullet and whilst these are laughed at now, they were top fashion looks at the time. The same with other hairstyles too. Back in the seventies, bushes were, well, bushy! Pubic hair sprouted from knicker lines and was highly desired. The odd trim or perhaps a little topiary trimming was in order but all in all, things were left to run wild. For the most part, people loved it. It was easy upkeep, pain free and of course a wonderful collection point for all those sexy pheromones. Fast forward a few years and it is gone. For most women, the thought of a stray hair ‘down there’ is horrifying. Smooth and bare is the order of the day despite the fact that hot waxes, shaving and all manner of painful processes are used to achieve the look. Discomfort is worth it in order to achieve a smooth and silky result – if only for a single day and if you use a razor, then that’s all you’ll get before the itching and stabbing set in!
For the most part it does seem that guys prefer us bare down there and yet when questioned, women said they preferred a little growth on a man. Not ringlets or dreadlocks or anything just a tidy smattering of short growth – think the Mitchell brothers type of hairstyle.
Perhaps the change in style was down to porn. The money shot is certainly easier to capture without a curtain of tresses in the way. Fighting through Japanese knotweed is not deemed to be much fun and men are visual creatures after all. As we know, if we see something often enough then it becomes accepted as ‘the norm’. If we are getting personal, it is actually very unlikely that you would find a London escort sporting a full bush. Perhaps those who specialise in more fetish types of fun but of course, that raises the question of when did the natural body become seen as a fetish? It seems to be down to more personal taste (pardon the pun)! Silky smooth is generally accepted as desirable and sexy so why not have this extended to the most desirable area of all. Of course it does raise the issue of beard rash and we are not talking about something a man might have to endure so if we have any advice for you, it would be to go gently on that soft bare skin. It is delicate and by nature, not meant to be so exposed. Soft and smooth is the way to go and certainly give you the rewards you are seeking. In contrast, do make sure that your own dingly dell is well kept and groomed. If we are to expect a certain level of commitment to our preferred upkeep then it is only fair to meet and equal that level of dedication. In a nutshell – guys, get the mower out once in a while!
