You are reading page 2 of Shaven Pubic Hair. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

I have re-entered the nursing field after being out for 15 yrs. Wow, how things have changed. One thing I have noticed is the lack of pubic hair on females. Oh my, it is almost non existent on females 35 and under, and his popular among all ages.

Have I entered a time warp or a unique clinic. is this the norm elsewhere?

And that's the most important thing????

Really??? :roflmao:

Seriously? A cultural shift in personal grooming has made such an impression on you that you joined AN and your first post is about...pubic hair?

Your very first post and it's about pubic hair? A lot has happened in healthcare over the last fifteen years, this seems rather insignificant. To answer your question; I don't think that you've entered a time warp. People have been removing "unwanted" body hair for thousands of years.

The History of Shaving

Nursing or not, I would have thought that you'd have noticed that removal of pubic hair is "a thing". Both males and females do it.

If you as a nurse find this area interesting, I think it's a good idea to approach it as you would any other of interest/relevant to your nursing specialty topic. Look at the research. I don't think that most posters here are interested in having an in-depth discussion regarding pubic hair but who knows. Personally I don't find that the "to be, or not to be" conundrum of pubic hair impacts my specialty in any significant way.

Maybe an ob-gyn clinic but still this is the most important change you see?

I was thinking so too until the OP added the observation that it's usually younger females, while with men "it's popular at all ages".

To people wondering why the skeptical response, in my case, working at a clinic doesn't mean the nurse gets up close and personal with the patient's genitalia to the degree described by the OP. Patients are generally asked to undress and given a drape to cover whatever the undressed area might be.

Maybe the OP can clarify what type of clinic he/she works in when he/she returns.

There is a tv show about a divorced woman in her 40's who decides to lie about her age and whoop it up . . . so to speak. She gets a job with a younger set of women and there is a scene where she is in the locker room getting ready to shower and the young women glance down at her pubic area and gasp! HAIR!! OH THE HORROR. :lol2:

(I only watched the first couple of shows on a night when I was bored to tears . . . honest!). :bored:

The trend in younger women IS no pubic hair.

Thanks for those links macawake. ;)

Sheesh guys, loosen up a little. There's a lot of jumping on the OP for asking a question..admittedly a somewhat silly question from the nursing perspective but still. I can see the curiosity here, I have been married over 20 years and haven't seen any genitalia other than my husband's that's under the age of about 75 for a long time. I didn't know this was a thing either.

On an episode of "Two and a Half Men", Alan watched porn after not having done so for a period of time. He said to Charlie, " What happened to pubic hair?"

To which Charlie replied, "It's gone the way of the dodo bird, my friend."
