October 6, at Some enjoy the feel of smooth skin. However, there are equally valid reasons not to shave. Shaving can be a costly, time-consuming, and frustrating experience. It can also hurt like hell if you do it wrong. Not your partner, not your friends, but you.
After all, pubic hair is natural. However, porn stars are carefully groomed to meet unrealistic and sometimes even harmful beauty standards. Your boyfriend can either accept it or take a sex-deprived hike. Trimming can entail anything from actual trimming using scissors to shorten the length of your pubic hair — please be considerate and clean up after! This way, you can groom yourself without too much time or effort.
If you want to go all out, though, we salute you and your bravery. First, however, there are some things you should know.

Your hair will start to grow back within a couple of days — sometimes even less, depending on how thick the hairs were to begin with — and, for the environmentalists out there, it wastes a lot of water. Fortunately, you have other options. The one you might be most familiar with is waxing.
Essentially, waxing consists of spreading hot wax on your pubic area, letting it dry, and then tearing it, and the hairs, off. Read more about the specifics here. However, the results will last much longer, anywhere from three to six weeks.
Just like with shaving, you can choose how much pubic hair you want to remove at a time. A regular bikini wax requires the least amount of commitment, only targeting the hairs that might pop out from under the edges of your bikini. A Brazilian wax removes all the hair down there — not just in front, but in back, too.
Sugaring is another form of waxing. Waxing has two lesser-known cousins, sugaring and mooming. Sugaring is similar to waxing, but with a sugar-based paste or gel instead of wax.
