We have all got hair down there, but how do you manage yours? As we countdown to Valentines we had a conversation in the office (well I say office but in fact mean our zoom office) as to our preferences when it comes to what we do with our pubic hair. We talked about whether we made an extra effort for special days such as Valentines or Birthdays. As you can imagine the topic raised a few eyebrows and of course lots of giggles. So we decided to write a little blog about the subject matter ‘To groom or not to groom? The valentine conundrum’.
A recent study we found online (no not carried out by dandi London…) that surveyed a diverse group of women found that more than 80% of gals groom their pubes regularly. About 5% of ladies groom daily, but a monthly regime is more common. About 75% of women stick to removing hair from the front and the bikini line. More than 60 percent of babes have gone completely bare.
It is not just the women that are grooming, 50% of men regularly manscape down below. Of those who groom nearly 90% take away from hair that is found front and centre, and more than half remove hair from the scrotum and shaft as well.
Approximately 60 percent of both men and ladies who groom put hygiene down as the reason. But the presence of hair doesn’t hinder or make you smell bad!
Interesting fact.. although some people are blessed with long locks on their heads the pubes don’t follow in length! The reason for this is pubic hair has a shorter growth cycle meaning it only lasts a matter of weeks.
So what do people opt for when it comes to Valentines. If you are a groomer you are more likely to beautify your bush especially if there is a chance of bedroom activity! But don’t worry if you don’t groom or remove hair it will not make a difference sexually as it does not increase your pleasure, instead it is a matter of personal preference for both you and your partner. In fact in some instances having hair down below when there is a little too much bump and grind action can actually help (a barrier rather than causing friction burns). Apparently 20% of women that groom actually do it to please their partners. Just make sure if you are going to do a little maintenance down below then perhaps don’t do it a few days in advance as itching is the biggest side effect (unless you use a painless hair remover such as dandi Londons).
So the valentines conundrum to groom or not to groom question is yours to decide.
