You are reading page 3 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?

Were you working in the pre-op area? Some of these posts were mean, and I don't want to send you away. Welcome back to nursing Shannon, you are needed. :nurse:

How on earth can someone interpret OP's post as him/her saying the pubic hair issue is 'the most important thing", "the most significant change" in nursing, is beyond me.

I thought it was just a comment on something he/she found curious, and not a huge deal.

Reminds me of a sex scene in "Transparent" when the transgendered male tells his female partner before they can do anything she has to shave. Guess it is a thing. Times change. Men, or shall I say gay men have been "manuscaping" for as long as I can remember. I think straight guys are doing it do, especially nudists.

Best thread in a long time.

Sheesh guys, loosen up a little. There's a lot of jumping on the OP for asking a question..

Some of these posts were mean, and I don't want to send you away.

I thought it was just a comment on something he/she found curious, and not a huge deal.

Either I'm way too cynical or some of you might be tad naive... I'm not sure which of the two applies here.

The ex-LEO in me feels deeply suspicious when a first-time poster chooses to post about a topic which concerns the genital region. Probably because I've seen so much strange behavior and seen so many strange ways that some people "entertain" themselves. Another thing which also makes me react is when a poster makes point of their gender identity by signing their post with a female first name. Not that I've conducted a scientific survey on the matter, but I believe that the majority of posters make a gender-neutral first post and will protect their anonymity by not including their given name. So it's an anomaly that I register.

When I answer posts I try to be helpful. There is a chance that the post was legitimate which is why I included several links to research regarding pubic hair (Spidey's Mom, who knew there'd be so much out there ;), not an area I'd previously looked into). If the OP genuinely had missed the fact that many men and women "groom" their pubic hair and have done so for some time, I thought that some facts and figures might be helpful.

Oh my, it is almost non existent on females 35 and under, and his popular among all ages.

I interpreted that the OP was only wondering about female pubic hair. I think that the h is "his" is one of these weird auto-corrects/spell checks that I get all the time. I think that he's saying that from what he's seen all women 35 and under shave all their hair but that it's common in all age groups. I could be mistaken though. (The pattern is similar for men and women, both men and women do this but it is more common in the younger generations).

My first experience with labor included a full shave and an enema. This was in 1985. There was no way in hell I'd ever shave (or have someone shave me) like that again. It was kind of painfully itchy!!

:no: No way Jose!

OP, ignore all the hoopla.

Yes, there are a lot less pubes, but I notice that they may be coming back a bit.

Welcome back to nursing.

See lots and lots of deliveries in my line of work. Some have pubes and some don't. At least in my neck of the woods, it's more of an individual thing versus cultural or age-related.

Some women of all cultures and ages are completely hairless, others have clearly never seen any hair removal of any sort. It's a pretty even split. I don't personally see the draw in hair removal but to each his own. I don't know what the menfolk do. LOL

I had planned on unsubscribing from this thread, with a big yawn. But then I got to thinking...

When I was young and new to the biz, lo, these many years ago, if we saw someone who had shaved pubes, that meant they'd just had prior surgery -or- if there was no recent surgery, it was the general consensus that they were kinda "perv", because what other reason could there be for shaved pubes?

And in contrast, there was also the simultaneous idea that if one did NOT shave their underarms and/or legs, it was 'nasty'.

Don't know OP's age, but figured the above info would add an aspect to the discussion not considered or known to the younger crowd.

Coming back into nursing after years away. one might also be mildly shocked to see the various and sundry tattoos and their placements...

In 1985 I had an 85 y.o. female patient who had 7 (SEVEN!) tattoos! She was not only a racy young woman when she had them done, she was positively scandalous.

Different times, different morals, and all inevitably filtered through each of us according to our own life experiences and times. Once upon a time, it was considered inflammatory to men's passions when some woman exposed a glimpse of her ankle on purpose.

Among nurses, who can talk about just about anything and remain nonplussed, I don't think it's unusual to post for the first time about returning to the biz and being caught unawares "by the short hairs" so to speak.

macawake, I absolutely respect your viewpoint and suspicions, and concede I very well may be sitting here w/ my head up in a dark place somewhere else in my body. But, I dunno. Am inclined to give benefit of a doubt here, until more posts are made by the OP... IF​ there are more posts, ;) then we'll see what we see! Maybe more exposure than an ankle, maybe less, maybe nothing, maybe worse!

Curious. With the "Shaven Pubic Hair" thing seemingly becoming very popular in 21 Century's Pop Culture, will "Hairy Groins" be the new radical idea? The new bold statement? The new trendy trend? The new popular fashion in personal grooming?!?!? If that is the case, then I am pretty freakin' hip!

:laugh:

At the other end of the spectrum, eyebrows go through many permutations, as well: Razor thin to thick and bushy. meh.

Or shaved off and "painted" on!! Or just adding to the eyebrows with more "paint". Which is hip right now with young women. Arrggh.

I have two friends whose daughters are beautiful and they have these odd eyebrows . . . makes them look like mannequins. :no:

OK, switching to the other body part..I saw an infomercial yesterday for the Bosley hair replacement place, apparently they do brow hair restoration now. The entire infomercial was women getting new eyebrows, so I guess the hair club for men will be next to expand their membership to the ladies.
