Going Bare Down There May Boost The Risk Of STDs

quote [ Next time you get a Brazilian wax or do a little manscaping, you may be getting more than you bargained for. Banishing hair downstairs may increase the risk of sexually transmitted infections. ]

Saw this right after responding to this comment on the prevalent 'growth' in the classic pr0n posts. Serendipity!

Still worth it. Picking hairs off of tongue is intolerable.

To each their own, though it must suck to have such a low tolerance level.

Not at all. At least not for me.

If being unshaven is a deal-breaker for most people these days (I don't know, being married and all), then not shaving protects you from STDs even more.

I wonder how much that's part of it though. If people who shave tend to be more sexually promiscuous, they will be more likely to pick up STIs than monogamous couples, no matter what.

Hence this bit of the article:

"Right now, we have no way knowing if grooming causes the increase in risk for infections. All we can say is that they're correlated. But I probably would avoid an aggressive shave right before having sex."

But it's a good way to hide your creepy white pubic hairs, lurking in the dark undergrowth like worms evolved in lightless underground caverns...

I don't know what kind of pubic hair experiences you've had, but clearly your views come from a very dark, scary place.
I'd prefer to think of it as frolicking in a moist, fragrant jungle of delights.
